The cottage is clean, and well stocked with kitchen supplies and linens. The back deck is a great place to have coffee in the morning. Bedroom is comfortable and cozy and we slept like rocks after long days of hiking in Acadia. More importantly, the owner could not have been nicer. We cannot wait to return to Bar Harbor and stay at Kelley's again.
