Have stayed here three times in different rooms and all were good. All my rooms had some level of cooking ability including a full kitchen. If you like quiet, this is a good location. It's on the water with a quintessential Maine view of lobster boats. It's about 3 miles from the village of Southwest Harbor. It takes 20-30 minutes... More

Connie was so welcoming and accommodating. We stayed in the Boat House Cottage with my sister and brother-in-law. Perfect accommodations for 4 adults. We were very comfortable and utilized the kitchen for breakfast and snacks. Good location to go to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, as well as lighthouses. The property is beautiful, as well as the view. Connie... More

What a great place to stay away from the summer crowds at Bar Harbor but only a short ride to Acadia and all it has to offer. The Pine Cottage was roomy enough for 3 adults and had everything we needed including kitchen supplies, WiFi, great scenery overlooking the water, a place to launch our canoe and comfy beds after...

This is a more modest priced place on Mount Desert Island and provide basic room, with a comfortable bed and functional bathroom. Some updating and renewing may be due, but will change the pricing point. Clean and functional enough to return, but not a easy place to recommend to the less adventurous.

I was a bit concerned because the lady on the phone pointed out that she, the owner, was living in the main house with us. We did have our own entrance and balcony. The room was very nice and roomy. We had our privacy and enjoyed our quiet. Bass Harbor is a relaxing village with several excellent restaurants within a... More

We took a 10 day tour of various locales in Maine, from Portland to Lubec, and our 3 nights in the rustic and comfortable Pine Cottage were our favorite. Connie graciously welcomed us and provided all we needed to get oriented to the cottage and to the quiet side of Acadia. There is a very nice screened in porch with... More

We stayed in Room 1 of the carriage house which was cozy, quaint, and comfortable. Sitting on the porch offered a lovely view. Bass Harbor is off the beaten track & much quieter than Bar Harbor, which is what we were looking for. Although we didn't stay in a cottage, they are quite large, with a kitchenette and several bedrooms.... More
