I'm a bit afraid to write such an amazing review on this cottage for two reasons: 1- I don't want the price to go up much more or we won't be able to afford it. 2- I don't want it to book too fast in the future and risk us not getting a week in!
Simply put, my husband and I could not have imagined a more amazing October honeymoon destination. We looked forward to our stay here for over a year and when it finally came, we were overly impressed. Pictures cannot do this place justice. 50-75% of our love for it is based on location- there's not much that's better in this world than sitting on the deck on a super brisk, sunny morning, eating breakfast, sipping coffee, and watching the lobster boats chug by. The master bed and pillows were so comfortable, we wanted to take them home. It was convenient and helpful to have laundry in house (we hate doing all that laundry when we get home). The fire was as inviting and comforting as you can imagine. We had space for all our luggage, hiking gear, and bikes in the house. We didnt take our kayaks, but if we did, we'd feel more than comfortable leaving them outside (above the high tide line, of course). The decor was spot on and never too much; we loved the modern, nautical, and yet simple feel of this place compared to others we viewed online. The view from the master bedroom was breathtaking and watching the northern lights from the house was such a highlight of our trip. The drive to the cottage is totally worth it. Nothing compares to that peace and quiet. So clean as well!
I literally think I could write a short book about staying at this place....simply, if you are looking to stay at a quality location for your Bar Harbor trip, stay here. You will NOT regret it!
