Your cottage is twenty feet behind my main house, so if you need anything, just knock on the door! I will check in with you to see how you are doing and if you need any recommendations for dinner or your next hike! I have a trained dog that goes out in the back yard as well, so let me know if you would rather have no interaction with her.

Maine 9% lodging tax (on rent only) will be collected by Airbnb. By law, there is no loud partying allowed in Bar Harbor after 10PM and until 7AM. The Police will evict you if there is a problem and there is NO REFUND if they do! This is a NO SMOKING property, but the sidewalk is not too far. No burning of any kind or candles or incense are allowed on the property. Candle-like LED Globe lights are provided as well as aromatherapy sprays. ALL TRASH must be bagged ONLY in the white garbage bags in your cottage before being put in the Outdoor Trash Barrels. DO NOT throw loose cups, cans, or small bags of trash in the Outdoor Barrels. Each full sized official Garbage Bag bag must be FULL; 1/2 full bags or smaller plastic bags found in the Trash Barrels will require you to pay the extra per bag fees charged by the Trash Collectors. Please secure the lock on the barrel so wild creatures are not partying all night while we are trying to sleep!
Good Dogs are considered for a $50 fee for cleaning, which fee must be paid upon arrival in cash. Dogs are welcome within certain parameters: 1. you must quickly pick up their poop in a poop bag and deposit it in the poop barrel; 2. they must be socialized and fairly polite with my dog who shares the yard with them; 3. they must be up to date on their shots, flea protection and TICK protection. 4. Young dogs that have not finished their shot series should NOT travel with you to my cottage; neither should dogs with worms! 5. Just like when you go to a boarding kennel, you need to send me a copy of your proof of vaccinations, and flea and tick control from your vet (or a store purchase receipt with with the name of the product on it) before you arrive. I will contact you about how to get this to me prior to your arrival.
I have a 6' fence around the yard, so no deer enter the yard. However, after dark they do roam up and down our street, munching on shrubs and dropping ticks on lawns and sidewalks. Needless to say, they do the same in Acadia. So even if you walk your dog only on sidewalks, you are exposing them to ticks and they need protection!
Humans and Tics: It is recommended by the State of Maine that you wear light colored clothing and tuck pant legs into socks when hiking in the woods and inspect yourself closely for tics when returning from the outdoors.
