Guest Comments : ...thanks for your place. It was wonderful. Just perfect for me and my family…It really hit the spot overall...we really unwound and found time for Bar Harbor, the west side of the island, Ellsworth, the lumber jack show, golf, kayaking, whale watching…, hiking in the park….we loved it and hope to return again in the future. Thanks again for making it possible.----

Guest Comments : We just returned from our vacation to Maine a few days ago—wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed Goose Cove Cottage! It was even more than we expected….I don’t think I told you before the trip: my parents’ favorite vacation spot has always been Maine, but because of their age, they haven’t been back to Acadia National Park for over 10 years; so we put together this family trip so my folks could return there, and the cottage turned out to be the perfect spot for us. Thank you—

Jonathan M Highlands Ranch, CO

Guest Comments : Wow - what a lovely home! We had a great time - thank you so much. Everyone commented on the comfortable beds, lovely bedding, beautiful kitchen, and of course we loved the videos and big TV! The house was perfect for us all…we'd love to have stayed longer.----

THE place to stay when going to Acadia!

  • 5 out of 5
Words can't properly describe the amazing experience we had when we stayed at the Goose Cove Cottage. Of all the places we've stayed over the years, this place was the cleanest, nicest, and as close to a perfect experience as one can have for lodging. The location is great, you're close enough to explore all of Acadia while far enough away from the crowds. You're only a few minutes from local restaurants and shopping is about a 10-15 minute drive.

The property was dead on perfect. The second we walked in the house, we felt like we were at home. I can't say enough about the property owner as well, she took better care of us before and during our stay than I could have ever imagined. During our week long stay with a 2 year old (this is a great place for kids by the way), we explored the normal "touristy" parts of Acadia as well as some of the other far flung places of the park. The cottage's location made this incredibly easy to do. It was nice being able to come back and cook a nice meal after hiking/chasing a 2 year old around. Bar Harbor is about 20 minutes away, and the main gate for Acadia was about 15 minutes. You'll appreciate the quietness of the cottage being just over the bridge on the other side of Mt. Desert island when you come back from a day of wandering around Bar Harbor when there are cruise ships visiting.

As you can tell, we would absolutely recommend this as a place to stay when going to Acadia. The price is right, and you'll be staying at a place where you can truly relax. We can't wait until we can get back here again, because we know we are guaranteed to have a great trip.

Excellent Accomodations and Hospitality!

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a week in Paradise and every day was perfect! The cottage is immaculate and very well furnished with everything that you could possibly want. The listing description and the pictures are very accurate but still unable to show all the beauty and amenities that are offered. Great pride and care is apparent in each detail and the owner is absolutely lovely, accessible, and offers exceptional hospitality. The property is within a short 15 minute drive to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor and yet feels like another world when you come back at the end of each day. We enjoyed many Acadia hikes, (Bubble Rock, Jordan Pond, Gorham Mountain, to name a few), the Schoodic Peninsula, the nature boat cruise in Bass Harbor (the R.L. Gott), and the Sunset at the Summit carriage ride in the park were just a smidgen of our adventures! We visited most of the communities of Mt. Desert Island and treasure the memories that we made during this perfect vacation. We would highly recommend this delightful home to family and friends and appreciate June for sharing this beautiful and magical place with us. Thank you once again for the welcome basket and making us feel so special!

Cozy just like home appeal, so comfortable!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Perfect house for my 2 teenagers and my husband and I. 3 bedrooms with great big Kingsize beds!!! Very close to supermarkets and restaurants.. Bar harbor and Acadia National Park very close . The house is very clean and maintained well. June is very attentive and has thought of everything,evan things you did not think of. We had an enjoyable time. It was well worth staying at this cottage, instead booking a hotel. It's so nice to be able to make dinner in if you do not want to go out again that day!!! Lots to do in Bar Harbor!!! We enjoyed the nature cruise seeing seal and an Osprey nest. Lot's of opportunities to hike and walk. It was fun to hike around the Sandbeach and hear the ocean waves below.
Great time had by all,
India

Comfort,Conveniency,privacy make Goose Cove #1

  • 5 out of 5
As a retired Airline employee we've traveled extensively but our favorite is the pristine Maine Coast,specifically Mt,Desert Island and the Cruise ship port of call,Bar Harbor. We always stay close by in Trenton at Goose Cove Cottage. My goodness, it is so well equipped with beautiful furnishings,and nestled deep in the lush forest,the quietness is exhilarating in itself. Having a full cottage has so many advantages over Hotels. You have 3 bedrooms,2baths with a fully equipped kitchen along with 4 flat screen TV's with blue ray for a couple hundred DVD's(classic and most current movies) along with cable TV and video games, If you're enjoying the outdoors and the yard,you have an upstairs deck,full downstairs deck,and a furnished,screened Gazeebo.With all of this you are only 5 minutes away from the store,lobster pound and 20 minutes of scenic driving to Bar Harbor.Acadia Nat'l Park has the finest walking and bike trails separated from any traffic,and the drive up Cadillac Mountain will have you taking pictures constantly for your memories. In Bar Harbor there are so many nice shops for items and the restaurants are numerous. Try the crab roll or Cadillac sandwich(Philly Cheese) at Epi's which we make as a regular stop. One would think this Island is solid granite,plentiful forests and fresh water lakes and mountains. But after a full day of just gawking at the beauty, Goose Cove Cottage welcomes you home for the relaxation you're craving. For my wife and I there is nothing to compare,it truly has it all.

A rarity!

  • 5 out of 5
It is not often that we get time with our children and their spouses. June's warm reception both on the phone and with a beautiful gift basket when we arrived at the property. Her home was ours for a wonderful four days.
The location of the home was convenient to the Trenton lobster pound, Bar Harbor and, of course, Acadia.
It was perfect for our family of six.

Owner's Response: The cottage has hosted a number of small family reunions and it is a privilege to play even a tiny role in these events. It is particularly gratifying to know that everyone there has had a great time and will go away with some wonderful memories. This guest mentions something that is always at the top of my list when I return for a visit to the area. Just 5 minutes from the cottage, there are several "lobster pounds" that sell live lobsters to the public. You can select the size and quantity right from the water tanks and they will bag them up for you to carry home to cook. They also offer other seafood such as steamers and mussels. During the season, a few of them will even cook your entire order for a small fee and then wrap the order up in newspaper to keep everything hot. On the occasions when I am there visiting during the season, I always choose this option. In 5 minutes, I am back at the cottage and unwrapping dinner while melting some butter in the microwave. The Trenton Lobster Pound is right before the bridge onto Mt Desert Island and in the summer has a dining area for those who would prefer to sit and enjoy their meal right on the premises. They also have a great view overlooking Blue Hill Bay. "Thank you!" to this guest for the lovely review and I am so glad that you had a wonderful four days!

Perfect for a family, especially on a rainy day!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the cottage in July with our two daughters (5 and 7 years old). The movie selection was amazing, and it was very organized. We had a fun time playing games from the many choices. The cottage was located a little farther from our hiking destinations than what we realized but the travel time was a trade for the comfort of the cabin. June was so thoughtful to leave us a welcome basket of yummy goodies and we enjoyed preparing some of them for meals. We have told many friends about the cottage and about Acadia!

Owner's Response: The cottage is outfitted with a variety of "distractions" that are available to guests in case of a rainy day or simply for those who would like a little "down time" from the abundance of activities that are available in Acadia National Park and the surrounding area. I am so glad that this family had an opportunity to make use of some of them. For those who are interested in hiking and biking, the National Park boasts over 120 miles of trails and carriage roads with varying degrees of intensity. There is a rather interesting history attached to the development of the hiking trails and particularly the carriage roads of Acadia. For more information, visit the Acadia National Park Website (www.nps.gov/acad/) and explore "Things to do" under "Plan Your Visit." Travel time to access points vary a little as Park lands are scattered over two thirds of Mt Desert Island. Most will average from approximately 10 to 20 minutes, give or take a few minutes. And, all of them offer a different perspective and a more "romantic" feel of the island than one would experience from simply driving the Park Loop. I would definitely recommend, if at all possible, making time to see a few of the stone bridges to be found on the carriage roads.

The cottage is located in Trenton--the gateway to Mt. Desert Island, home of Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, and the other scenic island communities. All island destinations are a short drive and within easy reach. The cottage is only 5 minutes from the bridge on to the island, the Bar Harbor Chamber's Visitor's Center, lobster pounds, gas stations, a grocery store, and the Bar Harbor Airport. Central to points of interest, both on the Island and off, such as Somesville at the head of Somes Sound, Northeast Harbor's yachting community, Southwest Harbor's fishing village, the Bass Harbor lighthouse, ferries to some of the other local islands (The Cranberries, Swan's Island, etc.), Seawall, Schoodic Peninsular, Deer Isle-Stonington, and so on. Bar Harbor and the National Park's Visitor Center is approx. 10 miles. Schoodic Peninsular, also part of ANP, is about 45 minutes away. Access to Rt 1, Maine's scenic route, is10 minutes away. The Camden/Rockland region is 2 hours from the island

Other Activities: rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, canoing
