Le logement

Small, clean and comfortable 2-BR house on Mount Desert Island, near Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, all island attractions. Walk to Western Bay, small yard, enclosed porch. Suitable for couple or small family of three or four (second small bedroom has bunk beds).

Accès des voyageurs

Vous pouvez utiliser toute la maison et la cour. Hangar reste verrouillé et n'est pas à la disposition des locataires. Si vous apportez un animal de compagnie, il y a une petite zone clôturée hors du porche de l'écran. Sinon, votre animal de compagnie devrait être lâché. Si l'animal de compagnie doit "courir", aller jusqu'à Herder Rd et chercher une allée de gravier sur le côté gauche, non loin du chalet. Descendez un peu, restez au-delà de la maison à votre gauche et laissez-la partir! Cette route passe à une zone qui va probablement être «développée» un jour, mais jusqu'ici, il n'y a pas eu d'activité! Nous avons également laissé nos chiens courir à Clark Cove (notre plage d'accès public) à marée basse quand il n'y a pas d'autre personne autour.

You can use entire house and yard. Shed remains locked and is not for renters' use. If you bring a pet, there is a small fenced in area off the screen porch. Otherwise, your pet should be leashed. If the pet must "run" go up Herder Rd and look for a gravel driveway on left side, not far from cottage. Drive down in a bit, staying beyond the house to your left, and let her go!! This road goes down to an area that is probably going to be "developed" one day, but so far, there's been no activity! We also let our dogs run at Clark Cove (our public access beach) at low tide when there are no other folks around.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

Nous serons disponibles via un texte ou un appel téléphonique. Nous aurons un gardien dans la région et le nom et les coordonnées de cette personne seront disponibles lorsque vous arrivez à la maison. Vous trouverez beaucoup de brochures dans le chalet sur les restaurants locaux, etc. Certains de nos favoris sont la salle de la carte à Hulls Cove, Rosalie's sur Cottage Street pour la pizza, Cafe This Way off Mt. Desert St., derrière la rangée de magasins (chercher un panneau) pour les petits déjeuners. Pour un peu amusant, la nourriture mexicaine "haut de gamme", un peu cher, essayez le restaurant XYZ à Southwest Harbor. Surveillez les poissons qui parent sur le sud-ouest du port pour le poisson frais. Pour les «popovers», une tradition de l'île, essayez les marchandises communes dans le sud-ouest du port à côté du bureau de poste, ouvert tous les matins. Pour un popover chic et une potage de poisson sur le porche, essayez Asticou Inn à Northeast Harbor. Il a remplacé Jordan Pond House Restaurant, qui était notre pop-up "go to" et thé sur l'endroit de la pelouse jusqu'à ce que la direction a changé de mains et qu'elle a descendu la colline.

We will be available via text or phone call. We will have a caretaker in the area and that person's name and contact info will be available when you arrive at the house. You'll find lots of brochures in the cottage about local restaurants, etc. Some of our favorites are the Chart Room in Hulls Cove, Rosalie's on Cottage Street for pizza, Cafe This Way off Mt. Desert St., down behind the row of shops (look for sign) for great breakfasts. For some fun, "high end" Mexican food, a little pricey, try XYZ Restaurant in Southwest Harbor. Watch for the fish man who parks overlooking Southwest Harbor for fresh fish. For "popovers," an island tradition, try Common Goods in Southwest Harbor next to post office, open every morning. For a fancier popover and fish chowder on the porch, try Asticou Inn in Northeast Harbor. It has replaced Jordan Pond House Restaurant which used to be our "go to" popover and tea on the lawn place until management changed hands and it went down hill.

Autres remarques

Feel free to use picnic items, walking sticks, binoculars, backpacks for hiking. Fun places to picnic are at Seawall, also Thompson Island, which you pass on your way onto Mount Desert Island. You can buy live lobsters at the top of Knox Rd., or at Trenton Bridge or Downeast Lobster Pound back over the bridge in Trenton. Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound is also a favorite.

In the house: please note that ceilings are low for a 6'3" person. Also, the hot water heater is 6 gallons. It replenishes quickly, but you can't run the hot water for a long time without it turning cool. If you want to take unlimited, long hot showers, our cottage may not be for you.

You will need your own bed linens and bath towels, toiletries. We supply pillows (with pillow protectors), comforter (and mattress protector). The large bed is queen size, the bunk beds, if you will use them because your children are with you, or because your spouse is snoring loudly, will need twin sheets. If you get chilly, feel free to use the blankets on the twin beds as extra blankets if you are not using the twin beds. If there are only two of you, you can use the second bedroom as a type of "walk in closet." We often lay clothes out on the lower bunk bed. But there is also a rattan dresser in the larger bedroom with shelves and doors. We also put our purchases in that second bedroom so they are out of the way until we are packing up to leave. You may also find the vacuum stored there, if we know no children are in your party.

We will supply toilet paper, paper towels, clean sponge, dish cloth, and dish detergent for your use. Broom, etc. are behind the dark brown curtain in kitchen. Cleaning supplies and other items (scotch tape, etc.) are under the sink. That is also where the 6 gallon water heater resides.

If you want to close windows, please be careful of the kitchen window over sink. It is held up with two thin pieces of wood that are painted white, with two metal hooks that can be used as handles. The window will close hard if those sticks are pulled out, so do be careful!

The propane heater in the main room is self-use. Please find instructions for turning it on should you have a chilly day or two, in the rental information booklet and also inside the door of the heater, located on the left side of the heater. It is thermostatically controlled, so the heater (propane flame on artificial logs) will go on and off once you turn it on. Do NOT place anything flammable on or near the heater while it is in use.

The small bathroom does not have a separate sink because of space. We have installed within the walk-in shower, a tub-like faucet and spigots that can be used to wash hands or brush teeth. There is also a large double sink in the kitchen just a few feet away. The toilet is an average height, standard toilet. If you have any physical difficulties because of injury, disability, or age, this might not be the rental for you. The house is not handicap accessible.

Please also note that you are expected, as stated in the manual in the house, to leave the house the way you found it. We supply cleaning items, mop, broom, sweeper, vacuum, etc. If our caretakers must spend extra time cleaning up after you, a claim will necessarily be submitted to airbnb for additional $ to come from your deposit.

Be sure to ask questions before you book. Things that are important to you should be considered, as not every rental is suitable for every visitor. Our visitors over the past 16 years have tended to be relaxed, unassuming folks, like us. While our caretakers are nearby, they may not be readily available on a moment's notice, but they will respond to any problems you may encounter as timely as possible. Once you have rented the cottage, you can arrive and depart any time within your rental week. If you must arrive later than your arrival date, or leave early, that is fine. We will appreciate a quick text message if that happens.

There is no TV in our house, but our grandkids have been known to bring movies on DVD and play them on a laptop computer. There is a radio/CD player, and there are many books, puzzles and games for your enjoyment. If you are bringing pets, please be sure they have had a recent bath and flea control treatment. When cleaning up before your departure, please be sure dog hair is not on floors or furnishings. We are dog lovers too, but some people aren't.

Loved the tiny cottage. Location was perfect for all of our excursions around the island and Acadia. Geri was a great host and always quick to respond. Would certainly recommend to anyone coming up to the island! As previously mentioned, be prepared for a super quick shower!

Thanks, Chris! We're water conservationists to the utmost! We do have ideas about putting in a point-of-source hot water heater that would heat water on demand. Small enough for our tiny house, and would provide enough hot water for everyone. But we do worry about people just letting water run! Clean water on MDI is a premium because of over-development. I remember the days in National Parks, including the showers outside of the Acadia nat'l park campground in Otter Creek that required you to put quarters in for a quick shower! LOL. We used to double up the kids! In our little house, I can get a shower and wash my short hair with the hot water on hand. My husband has longer hair than me and is bigger; he rinses, shuts water off, soaps up, then turns water back on and rinses. That works for him. My favorite is the outdoor solar shower behind the shed. People just aren't used to it, and we all really should be more conservative with our water. (Just sayin')

This is a very cute although small house. My husband is 6'3" and I would say no one taller than that should stay there. He only had a few inches clearance in the bedroom which had the lowest ceiling and he had to duck under the divider between the kitchen and living room. Otherwise it was great. Geri is very communicative and managed to fit everything you might need into the house. It has a great little side porch where you can eat meals and sit on the couch. It is conveniently located to Bar Harbor and Acadia but enough out of the way that it is quiet and peaceful.

Hi Kathy, thank you for the positive review. We do try to anticipate everyone's possible needs while visiting Acadia. But we hadn't thought about the height of the ceilings before, so it's a good thing to mention for tall people. I will take note of your suggestion about a different mirror. The one in the bedroom is an antique mirror given to us by a friend who owned the Captain's house in York, Maine. So it has some sentimental value, but you're right, it's probably not great for checking your hairdo!

This was my husband and I's first Airbnb experience and it was a lovely one. Geri was helpful, communicative, and friendly from the beginning and we felt confident knowing we could contact her with any questions or concerns. We spent a beautiful week in Bar Harbor honeymooning and loved returning after the day's adventures to our cozy cottage. The cottage is a bit rustic (we had to get used to brushing our teeth in the kitchen sink, very quick showers, and the small living space) but very comfortable, especially the queen bed. We loved using the little gas log fireplace during the colder evenings! The cottage is also super close to Acadia National Park and downtown Bar Harbor but far enough away from the fray that it's a wonderful escape. We would absolutely recommend Geri's cottage to anyone visiting the Bar Harbor area. We have already started planning a return trip and hope to stay at Bittersweet Cottage again!

Hi Joni, Thanks for your review. I will make a special note of the "sink" actually being in the shower. We brush our teeth and wash our hands after using the toilet using that shower faucet and hot and cold water spigots. We find that it is easy enough to use because of the small space. As you probably guessed, there is not enough room in the tiny bathroom for a sink, but we didn't want to go without any place at all to wash up in, in the bathroom. And of course, I'm sure folks use the double sink in the kitchen. Sorry about the dust/spider web in the corner. The cottage gets a thorough cleaning when we open it in spring, but sometimes the spiders get in there anyway. We plan to get the renter's booklet re-written soon. Yet, there's a lot of history there and I guess that's why I don't change it out. Too bad that someone used one of the back packs and neglected to clean it out! If it's the orange one, I took it home this season to wash. It will be nice and clean! Finally, I'm glad you were comfortable enough to want to come back and I hope we'll see you one day soon. ~Geri

Mary and I had a great time here. The location was great, and we enjoyed looking at all the fun stuff that Geri has collected and displayed around the house. Cozy cottage sums it up perfectly, and it was ideal for us.

Geri's cottage is in a perfect location for short access to Bar Harbor and many great hiking and biking trail in Acadia. Communication with her was easy. The cottage was a comfortable resting place for our active days in the park.
