“Awesome!”
Reviewed 17 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Thank you so much for providing such a beautiful home for us to spend the week in! We had an amazing time, much due to the comfort of your wonderful home! The breeze that would blow in through the windows was such an awesome reminder of childhood times, before central air, when the only air conditioning we had was an open window and a summer breeze! The temperature here was so mild, and the humidity so low, that I could see myself spending summers here. It was a perfect fit!

“Wonderful,warm and cozy home!”
Reviewed 26 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The home was in the quiet, charming town of Winter Harbor. Many lovely drives around the area. We loved the "cottages" on Grindstone Neck. Acadia Nationl park was within an hours drive.
The home is very clean, well stocked and with thoughtful extras and tips on what the area has to offer.
Kathleen has makes sure her guests were comfortable. She has many extras, like an atlas, binoculars, maps, brochures and helpful info about the area. We would definitely stay again.

“A definate GREAT find when I came upon this rental on tripadvisor.”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Great Rental. The owner's respect and pride for her home shines through as soon as you drive in the driveway. It's decorated with Maine oceanside decor in all the rooms; we loved that! The house is clean, all the appliances/tvs/fans/lights work. Beds were cozy! Neighborhood is child friendly. Useful notes, pamphlets, brochures, menus are in the house; with tried and true notes of places around the area. We liked getting out of the Bar Harbor crowds; yet still able to day trip there or venture to the main land Acadia!
