A wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at Chelsea Cottage in August. We absolutely enjoy the weather, the fantastic views at Acadia, the food, and most importantly the spacious and comfortable house, which all together left us with great memories and very pleasant expriences. The house was very clean and well-maintained. The owner was very responsive and considerate along the whole process. We left a tennis bag at the house and she mailed it back promptly afterwards. The house has all the appliances and utensils. It 's inside the woods and very quiet, yet at the same time conveniently located to access everything. We would love to come back again and highly recommend it to everyone.

Acadia summer vacation

Summer Vacation

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We spent a week at Chelsea Cottage for a week this July. Truly not a "cottage"! 3 full bathrooms and bedrooms. We had an party of 6, my husband and I with our 4 sons ages 17 -28. We were all comfortable. The house was very clean. Full kitchen stocked with all the pots, pans and utensils needed. We used the barbecue 3 times and it worked great. Very quiet and secluded, so make sure you get all of your pantry items in Ellsworth before you get to the island. Bar Harbor a good 15 minute ride away. Points in Acadia easily accessible, about 10 minutes away. Even though I did my research, the island is very large and there is so much to see.

Pros- large house 3 bathrooms washer/dryer

Down the road from Echo lake and from kayak and canoe rental. The owner was very helpful and friendly. She responded to all emails and phone calls quickly. I already received my cleaning deposit back and I have been home only 5 days.

Cons- Only one TV in family room. My sons said the twin mattresses were a bit uncomfortable.

I would recommend to a friend.

Thanks for a great week!

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed your time here and were able to see our Island in good weather during our Centennial for Acadia National Park. I appreciate the tips. We will make sure that other visitors have more television options and will step up the children's bedroom with more comfy bedding. Thank you for taking such good care of our Cottage. Hope you will visit us again next year! Thank you for thinking of us.

A relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family & I had a wonderful time at Bar Harbor. The town was quiet and picturesque, a perfect place to unwind. There was never a shortage of things to do for all ages. Chelsea Cottage is located in a forest setting, it had everything we needed and it's not far from most attractions. The owner was polite and professional. It was nice to hike & sightsee all day, then have a quiet place to come home to at night. We would go back to Maine in a heartbeat, it's one of the most beautiful places we've visited.

Retreat in Bar Haror

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the last week in June at Chelsea Cottage and had a great time. Chelsea Cottage was a nice, quiet, retreat with beautiful scenery. It was a home away from home that was clean, with ample space and modern accommodations. An added bonus was three full bathrooms which came in handy with four adults and two children. The house was about 15 minutes from Bar Harbor with easy access to all the focal points in the area.

During our stay we enjoyed clear, starry nights that one does not encounter in the city. We were also exposed to wildlife (deers) on several occasions which my children and I enjoyed a great deal. Chelsea Cottage is close enough yet far enough away that you can spend time just reading a book and enjoying nature or you can have quick access to downtown.

My experience with the owner was always positive. She took the time to answer all my questions and ensure that my families stay went well. I would recommend Chelsea Cottage to anyone looking for a rental home in Bar Harbor .
