“A perfect vacation home by the sea”

We spent a lovely week at Seaside cottage. The house was beautiful and extremely well-equipped: my daughters loved their room with two twin beds and dressers built into the wall, and we appreciated the basement pingpong table on our one rainy day. The kitchen had everything we needed and the screened-in porch was a perfect place to watch the sun set over the bay and listen to the waves and seagulls. We even made up a new cocktail while on the trip. . ."Acadia Sunset." We hope to return soon.

Wonderful! I'm so glad your daughters enjoyed their room - we put a lot of thought into those features. :-) AND the ping pong and rec rooms and the screened porch - we're happy you enjoyed these amenities just as we intended. Lovely. We look forward to having you back! Best regards to you all - J&P

My husband, father and I simply didn't want to leave. Each day we were torn between going out to enjoy the surrounding area and staying at home to enjoy the house and Duck Cove right outside the door.

The place was spotless and well stocked. We were particularly grateful for the laundry detergent since that was something we did not think to bring with us. Nice touch. Views were superb, beds were comfortable, house nicely laid out, and we so enjoyed the ping pong -- our nightly tournaments provided much hilarity!

Communication with Joy and Peter couldn't have been better. Our stay was totally perfect, and we hope to return for a longer stay next time.

“Lovely Ocean view Cottage with Everything You Need, quick access to Acadia National Park”

This is a beautiful house, tucked into a quiet cove on the "quiet side" of Mount Desert island.

This house is deceptively large, with two cozy bedrooms upstairs and a downstairs master. As a family of 5 all traveling together, we were surprised (and grateful!) to see that each bedroom has its own bath, with plenty of towels. Everything was spotless and very comfortable. The owners have taken great care to make your stay comfortable, with wifi, board games, a ping pong table, and a tv with a handful of local channels and DVDs to watch. They also leave some nice brochures and maps for you.

The kitchen is stocked with just about anything you need to cook - there were more than enough pans, utensils, glasses, dishes, etc. for us to make a few meals and snacks at the house.

The location was also perfect for us. Sunsets are indeed lovely at this cottage, and it is close to a few cute restaurants and places to hang out. Mostly we enjoyed the quiet seclusion that this offers. If you want to be in the mix in Bar Harbor this is probably not for you, but if you want nearby park access with a nice quiet retreat at the end of the day, this is a great offering at a very reasonable rate. We would absolutely stay here again and would recommend it highly to anyone.

Thanks Tracy! It's true, Acadia has a lot to offer, whether enjoying the cove, cottage, and nearby trails or driving about and seeing all there is to see. And we will add a DVD player to the new flat-screen cable TV and game table in the rec room - thanks for the suggestion. We're glad you enjoyed your stay!

“Perfection...”
Reviewed 11 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

3 generations, my parents, my wife and I, and our 2 boys (4 and 6) stayed at Seaside Cottage - and the only thing we could have wished for would have been to stay another week or two - or three! My little one still asks when we are going back to our cottage. It's unbelievable how the owners thought of everything, even the tiniest details. My mom was totally blown away - and she is German and quite picky! Yes, I would definitely recommend this cottage to everybody! The location is perfect, it's clean, has absolutely everything... WOW! We'll be back!
