So quiet and peaceful.

We had a great time – the house was well equipped, comfortable and clean. The area is so quiet and relaxing. It was a truly restful vacation experience. We saw eagles and seals while kayaking in West Harbor. We really enjoyed biking and hiking the Schoodic Peninsula.

We had a nice week at this new house overlooking Gouldsboro Bay (I think). Nice easy kayak launch down the hill from the house. Lots of nearby hiking and sights. Schoodic point (part of Acadia) is nearby, but the bigger park on My Dessert is about 1 hour south. There is a nice private beach in nearby Corea. Be aware that the stairs in the house are steep and creaky. Aside from that, great house. BONUS that it's the only house visible from the street. Very private.

Our stay in Matt and Nicole's cottage was fantastic.

Our stay in Matt and Nicole's cottage was fantastic. It's a gorgeous piece of property with a very secluded feel. It doesn't have the vast ocean views but was still extremely peaceful. The house was beautiful, cozy, and very well stocked. You really feel like it's your vacation home and not some bare-bones rental. We really only had to buy perishable food— even the pantry was fully stocked. They did a great job making us feel at home with notes on how to use everything in the home and where the best local places are. It's a little bit of a drive to Acadia and Bar Harbor but it was nice to be away from the tourist scene and Ellsworth is close enough to make trips to get food and supplies. We would definitely stay again and recommend this to anyone who's interested in a nice getaway.

Beautiful home

We loved staying in this home. It was away from everything, yet close enough to be in Acadia within minutes. After driving through Bar Harbor, we were happy to be away from crowds. Each morning we had breakfast outside, facing the water. Each night the bullfrogs sang us to sleep. The only people we saw all week were paddling by.The kids loved swinging in the hammock and exploring the property. The house was well stocked with everything and was spotless. We have stayed in rental houses throughout the country and none have been as well stocked as this one. We loved the wall of windows in the living room and seeing the moon reflecting over the water. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone who wants seclusion and who would like to enjoy nature. It is a beautiful, comfortable home.

Truly the way life should be

My husband and myself along with our two four legged babies really enjoyed our week here. The cottage is everything described and then some. It was so comfortable, we didn't feel a need to go anywhere! Beautiful spot, secluded. Bald eagles in the cove viewed from the windows. The dogs had a blast as well. Thank you for the shopping tips. We've always gone into Ellsworth, never realized Milbridge was so much closer. Guidebook came in handy for that and we got the last bit of clams before state shut down for fresh water runoff due to the rain. We love this part of Maine and would definately rent here again.

Beautiful, Comfortable Isolation

Date of Stay: 07/07/12 Review Submitted: 07/19/12

Your vacation home is wonderful. It is thoughtfully designed (the living room feels like a tree house!) and very well-stocked (even doggy towels) making for a relaxing vacation. The isolation is so peaceful especially from the hammock by the water. We went to Schoodic most days, especially after the one time we ventured into the main park. Schoodic was never crowded, easy to bike, and the views were dramatic. Your home allowed us to have the laid-back vacation of our dreams in absolute comfort. Thank you!

This house is great! Really beautiful inside and out and very spacious. It’s definitely more secluded, but we didn’t mind the 45 min drive to Acadia. There is a smaller part of Acadia that is beautiful and a nature preserve (great birding) both about a 10 min drive from the house…

House is beautiful and large with an impressive outdoor area including a creek! Very good price for the house and it's minutes from a non touristy part of Acadia National Park that is quite beautiful and free from crowds. Would definitely book again!

The Cherry Dip cottage was cute, clean and comfortable. We normally stay near Acadia on the Bar Harbor side, but wanted to check out the Schoodic area for this trip. It was beautiful, but it took about 45 minutes to get to the Bar Harbor side when we wanted to get to that area. I…
