Amazing location and beautiful house. A perfect relaxing getaway.
beautiful property, great view and great location
This was a beautiful house with lovely views, convenient to Mt. Desert Island and Acadia National Park as well as to points further east. The house is well appointed with spacious living and dining areas, as well as terrific master bedroom suite. Everything is shipshape. Also has porch with table and grill for outdoor eating. We were very happy there!
The quintessential Maine escape
Cove House is lovely and quiet. It is just the place for those who want to get away from it all. It is located on a quiet road, overlooking Mr. Desert Island. It is very convenient to Acadia and other points Downeast. The house itself is well-maintained and has everything you need to relax. A special bonus is Jenny, the property manager. She is incredibly knowledgable. responsive and will gleefully answer any questions you might have. As befits an Arcadia escape, it is a 15-20 minute drive to "civilization." In addition, it is located on a cove with significant tidal variability. When the tide is up, it is picture perfect. When it is down, it is a mud flat. This was not an issue for my family as there was something comforting about being aware of the tides. Highly highly recommend this house for those seek an escape from it all. For those who want to escape but not completely, the WiFi works well.
The house was roomy, lovely, and comfortable. We were disappointed that there was no beach access that we could find (until the last day, when we discovered an overgrown trail). Also, we had counted on the video library that was mentioned in the listing, but not present after all. But the essentials--hot water, electricity, fans, dishes, bedding--were all there. And it was as lovely as the photos showed.
This was our second year staying at Cove House and it was just like we never left! Just like before, the house was exceptionally clean and tidy, kitchen was stocked well with every utensil/appliance you could possibly need and the views were just as spectacular as last year. Every morning I walked out with my coffee and sat and listened to the birds. So peaceful! We arrived on the hottest day of the season (we are visiting from Florida so it really didn’t bother us much!) and there were fans in each room which made having no central AC bearable for the few days we needed them. The local caretakers for the home are very helpful and make your stay comfortable. Thank you to the homeowners for sharing your beautiful home with us. We are on the books to come back next year and we can’t wait!
Wonderful views of the cove
Cozy property, secluded for privacy. Amazing waterfront views of the cove. Loved seeing the wildlife. Amenities inside the home were wonderful. Location was close to Bar Harbor and Acadia.
