Cozy home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

My fiance, myself and our dogs had a wonderful stay in Summerwood Cottage. The cottage was the perfect size for our little family and the basement provided the storage space we needed for our bikes and the dog crates. We came to Mount Desert Island to run in the MDI Marathon which was a wonderful experience. After completing the marathon on Sunday we had hikes and bike rides planned for the rest of the week. We were able to start many hikes by simply walking out the door and down the street. It was really nice to not have to drive to every trail head. A word of caution for anyone planning to visit MDI in October like we did, the island is beautiful, but many things are closed for the season (restaurants, shops, bus service). This was not a big deal for us as we prepared many meals at home and found plenty of places still open in Bar Harbor when we wanted to go our for a meal. All in all you cannot beat the location of Summerwood Cottage. It is close enough to Bar Harbor to drive to town whenever you may need to but far enough away to avoid the crowds and traffic. We hope to return to MDI soon and plan to rent Summerwood Cottage when we do.

Perfect Cabin in Mt Desert

  • 5 of 5

My wife, dog and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Summerwood. The cabin was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities that we needed. It was great to be so close to Acadia National Park and have a quiet and peaceful stay. This will be our first choice for return trips to Maine!

Great Stay on Mount Desert Island

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cozy 1 bedroom home in a fantastic location for Bar Harbor and the surrounding areas. They had a fold out couch and we were comfortable for a family of 4 plus our dog. The house is very clean, nicely decorated, and was a great place to come home after a long day cruising around Maine. The owner was very responsive and check in and check out could not have been easier. I would definitely recommend this rental!
