It was in a peaceful, private location and was very clean, spacious and comfortable. It was also the most well-equipped holiday home that we have ever stayed in and we've stayed in many. There were spares of everything... and then there were also extras in case the spares ran out! Everything throughout the cottage was of a good quality and it had the feel of a real home. Unfortunately our weather wasn't too good, so we didn't get to enjoy the garden and deck, which was a shame. We visited Bar Harbour and enjoyed the low-tide walk to Bar Island. Seawall and Bass Harbour head Lighthouse didn't look too great in fog, although I'm sure on a sunny day, they would be worth a visit! In Southwest Harbour, the Quietside cafe does delicious ice cream and we had an enjoyable meal in Sips restaurant. Would highly recommend this cottage, without any reservations!!
