I am reluctant to write this review because honestly, I want to keep it to myself. Annie's was perfect. We have visited Acadia for many years and I was beginning to feel like Goldilocks, but this place was "just right." The cottage has large, spacious rooms. The kitchen is beyond fully equipped with quality cookware and amenities, even a large container of bottled water in the fridge to fill our water bottles. The king size bed was remarkably comfortable. Our deck provided an expansive view of the water and gorgeous sunsets. Internet and phone service was fine. Rainy day? Besides the big screen TV, the cottage is stocked with box games and books. I could continue but let me sum it up that if you are looking for a peaceful, comfortable place to stay, Annie's Outlook is perfect.
Absolutely loved our stay! The cottage was well furnished and comfortable. We had a serene view to return to after exploring the busy side of Acadia. Robin was a great resource and pointed us to local establishments that were excellent. We would definitely stay here again if travels bring us back to Acadia!!!
Absolutely loved Annie's sunset cottage !! Great location on the quiet side of acadia. Only took 25 minutes to get to popular attractions in acadia. We made sure we returned to cottage to catch the sunset every night. Absolutely stunning sunsets!!
We enjoyed our third consecutive year at Annie's Outlook at Sunset Cottages and have already reserved for next year. Love the peace and solitude of staying on the Quiet Side, but we can always find activity in nearby Southwest Harbor, or Bar Harbor and Northeast Harbor, both a little farther away. Staying at Annie's always rewards us with amazing sunsets over the water, an occasional glimpse of an eagle or osprey, and anything we could want inside the cottage itself. Each year, we find that the owners have made updates to the property. This year's new changes were removing the queen bed in the common area living room/bedroom and putting a king-sized bed into the room next to it which had previously had only a day bed. They also replaced the carpeting with petty hardwood floors and installed a new stainless steel refrigerator. It is really freshing to see improvements to rental properties especially without raising the rates to pay for them! Everything is spotlessly clean and well maintained! Towels, bed linens, and dishes are of the kind you might have in your own home instead of those found in the hotel industry. We enjoyed the area activities including visits to Bass Harbor Headlight, a hike on Ship Harbor Trail, and lobster at Thurston's. We always enjoy the Quietside Cafe for their Island Pizza and blueberry or apple pie, and we like the Colonel in Northeast Harbor. Acadia is magnificent, and we love the Schoodic Peninsula and the drive up to Lubec for lunch and fantastic views of Quoddy Headlight. Best rainy day activities - shopping at Reny's in Elsworth, antiquing, and perusing the shops in Bar Harbor. It doesn't get any better than the vacation we just enjoyed with Annie's as our home base! Thank you!
This was a much anticipated trip, and Annie's Outlook truly delivered. Like all other reviews, I have reinforce that the cottage was fantastic: well stocked with amenities, modern conveniences, beautiful views, and generous owners (Barbara and family). This is a wonderful place to make as your home base. What could be better than dining with awesome Sunset views of Duck Cove in front of you? What could be better than being comfortable and relaxed in your home away from home? What could be better than drinking wine on your own private deck/adironack chairs dotted around the property. You won't be disappointed. We weren't and we are likely to return!
