Foundation of a great family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Newman Cottage with it's hospitable owner's is a great place spot for "Vacation Central" on beautiful MDI. The house is very nicely appointed to support it's guests. Fresh lobsters and eggs from the owners are a great amenity. Thanks again and we're looking forward to next year!

Perfect family cottage in Acadia

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay in a cottage owned by family when we visit MDI and Acadia, so our standards are pretty high. The Newman Cottage was fantastic! It was clean and stocked with everything you could think of and more. The chiminea in the back yard was a wonderful bonus! It will definitely be at the top of our list if our family's cottage is rented during our next visit.

Quaint, Quiet, and Clean!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful little house. Lots of old farm house charm. Perfectly situated on quiet side of island. My family took a walk down to the private beach on our last night. Wishing we had done that on our first night! We would definitely stay here again, and recommend this location to families.

Great location! Owners thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Newman cottage was perfect for our family vacation. The cottage had toys for our children, lobster pot for our lobster dinner, tree swings, sand toys, everything you need! The location is wonderful as well, the short walk to the shore was great. Having a fire in the chiminea was an added bonus! Plenty of space for 6 of us. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Very well appointed house with responsive owners

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Newman Cottage. This property was probably the best appointed rental property we've stayed at to date. There are three upstairs bedrooms, one set up for two kids. Plenty of dishes and cutlery in the kitchen, a dishwasher and an efficiency washer/dryer. There are TVs with Netflix streaming throughout the house, a DVD library and WiFi. The owners live in a separate house at the back of the property and are very friendly and responsive. Despite being situated next to the road, the house is extremely quiet, as there was virtually no traffic. The location is convenient, the island is relatively small, so that it is a quick drive to anywhere you may want to go - for a hike, a bike ride or into one of several towns. We very much looked forward to our vacation and we weren't disappointed.
