Great Location - Comfortable Accommodations
We had an awesome time. The property is in a great location, close to the fun stuff but not so close to be bothered by traffic and noise. We would recommend this property to our friends!
Great, central location but lacking in some comforts of home.
The house is in a great central location, 10-15 minute walk to town and less than 10 minute drive to Acadia. While the house itself is cozy, it was missing in some comforts of home. We traveled with our 2 young kids and therefore did a fair amount of cooking and food prep at the house. The kitchen was definitely lacking in some essentials, such as Pyrex pans, larger cutting boards, and better kitchen utensils. The owners also didn’t even leave a starter set of tin foil, plastic sandwich bags, or garbage bags so the first couple of days I spent a lot of time at the grocery store (which was thankfully only a 3 minute drive away.) Although the house was advertised to have a DVD player, it did not. Again, it would have been nice for the kids and we brought several DVDs with us. The one bathroom in the house could definitely use some updates and the towels provided had clearly been used for years. The bed in the master room was so uncomfortable and creaky, my husband and I woke each other up anytime the other moved. Our sleep was very poor during the entire stay. Our 2 kids slept in the 2nd bedroom with 2 twin beds. While the nights did get cool, even with the window open, no breeze comes into that room and it became VERY stuffy in there. The room needs a fan or another AC. All in all, we probably would not stay at this house again for the price that we paid.
The perfect cottage for a party of 4
Although there is nothing fancy about this cottage, it was a pleasure to stay in a place that is clean, organized, and welcoming. There were ample number of towels waiting for us, a good supply of dish washing detergent and dish washer detergent, as well as laundry detergent. The mattresses are of good quality.
The location of the cottage is also a plus: It is slightly outside of the most popular streets without being way out. It was a 10 minute walk to a good grocery store and to the shuttle stops.
It may be worth pointing out that the bedroom with two twin beds is quite small and one of the beds makes is difficult for the door to fully close.
This cottage is perfectly located: it is close to town yet in a quiet neighborhood. Additionally, it borders a beautiful park area.
The kitchen as pictured on vacationrentals.com is the most delightful part of the house. It is inviting and sunny.
I stayed for 2 weeks at this property with 2 other adults, 2 large dogs, and a cat. We were very comfortable.
My only suggestion is to perhaps refurbish the bathroom and maybe add a half bath.
