“Perfect vacation”
Reviewed 18 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Just got back from our stay at Karens Cottage, what a wonderful place. Karen is a great person and it was a pleasure getting to know her. She made us feel so welcome that it felt that we have know her forever. The house was just like home, everything that we needed was provided and the location was just great. Short ride into town, mile from Acadia and a short walk down the street to the water. We will be back!!

“Perfect place to stay with your furry family”
Reviewed 25 February 2015 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at Karen's cottage last summer in July 2014 with our Weimaraners who loved walking to the beach and the shuttle to town! The cottage has everything you might need and the washer and dryer were fabulous for getting out the unplanned salt water splashes! Karen was great and nearby if you need anything. We are looking forward to our next booking!

My Husband and I had a wonderful week at Karen's Cottage in Bar Harbor. The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The location was just perfect to Acadia National Park and downtown Bar Harbor. We hope to come back next year!!

We rented this cozy welcoming cottage for a week. The cottage had everything we needed, very comfortable! The area was very quiet, off the main road, only 4 miles from Bar Harbor. The convenience was perfect! Beds were so comfortable, and sitting in the living room at night, I felt like I was in my own living room! Washer and dryer were also a plus. We had a perfect memorable week at KAREN'S COTTAGE. I would highly recommend this little gem to anyone!
