Perfect Location

Review submitted: October 16, 2013   Date of arrival: October 1, 2013

This was our first trip to Bar Harbor, and we arrived to Acadia National Park being closed due to the government shutdown. Even so Peggy e-mailed us a list of things to do and places we could visit in and around the park, accessed via county roadways and short hikes; and hiking trails within the park that we could get to without having to drive into the park. Summerwood was a perfect home base for our week in the area, far enough away from the hustle & bustle of Bar Harbor but an easy drive of four to five miles when we wanted to go in for meals, shopping or activities in town. We loved our getaway to Maine, and Summerwood made it a special memory for us.

It has been an amazing week here in Acadia

Review submitted: October 11, 2012   Date of arrival: August 11, 2012

It has been an amazing week here in Acadia, the weather has been great, just a few days of fog or rain, but nothing to keep us away from enjoying the amazing views or trying the delicious
resturants. Cadillic Mtn. is something not to be missed.
We on our last night we took the sunset sail on the 4 masted schooner the Margaret Todd, we have never seen a more beautiful sunset.
The cottage ws beautiful and made for the perfect home while on our vacation, we hope to be back soon...

at Jordan Pond Houe to the sunrise at Cadillac Mts., the
week my husband and i spent here will be forever in our memories.

lovely vacation cottage

Review submitted: July 19, 2011   Date of arrival: July 9, 2011

We just got back from a delightful week at Summerwood Cottage. It was everything in the description and more. The location couldn't have been more perfect - a quiet residential street, just a few steps away from the Otter Creek Market and the shuttle bus stop. One could manage fine without a car, though we did enjoy our drives along the park loop road.

The house itself was very clean, sunny, and roomy. We loved the high ceilings, old woodwork, and skylights. We had originally planned to be there as a couple, but in the end my daughter joined us and slept on the pull-out sofa. The house was plenty large enough to accommodate us all. We especially enjoyed spending time on the large covered porch. The only complaint we had was too many mosquitos, but that was pretty normal for summer. We loved cooking on the grill almost every night. Speaking of food, don't miss the lobster pizza from the market. And the Bar Harbor Brewing Company Ale.

We would definitely come back here on our next trip to Acadia. Thanks!!

We loved the Location

Review submitted: May 18, 2010   Date of arrival: September 5, 2009

We had such a great week here! We loved the location and the serenity that this home had to offer. A few highlights of our trip.
1.Hiked Cadillac Mtn.via Gorge Path and then hiked down North Ridge Trail of Dorr Mtn. the views are spectacular! 2. Very easy trail around Great Head and Jordan pond and you must enjoy tea and popovers at the Jordan Pond House. The
popovers are nice but the atmosphere and the views are what made the experience so spectacular.3 Must have Lobster at the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound! Loved it so much we went back 3 times... Carriage Roads are great , the path at the
end of the street will bring you to the Park Loop Rd. 4 Don't forget Sundays
at the Farmers Market in Bar Harbor... We love it so much here!!

We enjoyed the sunset/sunrise on top of Cadillace Mt. Watched the stars beside the ocean- hiked around Jordan Pond enjoyed the breathtaking view of
the Mountains from the Jordan Pond House. Bi-Plane ride at sunset was just breathtaking , well worth the $, oh and almost forgot, the Abby Albrich Rockefeller Garden is a "Must See" it was like taking a little trip to China, just beautiful... Thank you Peggy of all your help ,we look forward to many anniversary trips ..

We enjoyed the trail at the end of the street.

Review submitted: May 18, 2010   Date of arrival: May 24, 2009

This is our 12th year of Maine escapes but our 1st time her at Otter Creek.
We enoyed the trail at the end of the road. We hiked the Ocean Path from Sand
Beach to Gorham Mt. it was a beautiful view from the top, one of our favorite
walks with the dog is Little Long Pond at Seal Harbor-very dog friendly. and
our trip would not be complete without afternoon tea & popovers ant the Jordan
Pond House.
Thank you - we loved the Cottage!
