    We had a terrific time here. We have been coming to Bar Harbor for many years and have stayed in multiple houses- this is one of our favorites. Best place for breakfast- Everyday Joe’s- fantastic pancakes

  2. Guests from MO

    We enjoyed your lovely cottage and our first time to Bar Harbor. We had a great experience. Rode the carriage roads, lunch at the Jordan Pond House, hiked, went on the whale watch, and ate at Stewman’s for lobster our 1st night. We rented bikes for the week which was wonderful to ride into Bar Harbor everyday. It’s a magical place and your cottage is perfect. We also bought lobster, shrimp, and scallops from Parson’s and cooked our own dinner. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

  3. Guests

    What a wonderful place. We have been coming to Bar Harbor and MDI for over 20 years and this is our new favorite spot. Open and inviting both inside and out, a very well-equipped kitchen and a lengthy but convenient walk to town. Thank you so much. We will be back!

  9. young guests

    We had a lot of fun at Belle Cottage and we brought our dog named Madi and we like playing with the games.

  10. Guests

    The cottage is pretty, a great location, and had everything we needed. After a day of exploring (every day), we enjoyed the games and cozy reading areas while we made dinner. Our favorite restaurants were Lampoc on Roddick Street and Thrive. The national park is awesome! We bought a week pass for $30 and went through the park several times to stop and walk around the beautiful areas. My son and his wife went on several hikes; they loved it! Sand Beach and Thunder Hole were really nice.

  11. Guests from PA

    We enjoyed our peaceful, relaxing stay at Belle Cottage. There are plenty places to eat within walking distance. The last evening, we went to the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound to get boiled take-out lobster- good deal! This cottage has everything needed for a great stay!

  12. Guests

    Great downtown Bar Harbor location ~ walk to everything with a nice yard too! Perfect cottage in a great location. This cottage was just perfect for our stay. About 1/2 mile to “downtown” and easily walk-able. Also close to some trails, a playground, and a huge ball field and the recycling center. The house had everything we needed and we really enjoyed it after fun days of exploring Acadia Nat. Park. Most nights, we sat outside on the deck, enjoying the private backyard. The front porch is also very cute and a great place for morning coffee. The cottage was nicely decorated and comfortably furnished. We would definitely stay here again.

  13. young guests

    Thank you so much for letting us use your house. Love, Gus, Alix, and Dick

  14. Guests from Ohio

    Thank you for the beautiful stay at Belle Cottage. The house was perfect for our needs and we couldn’t be happier to be able to bring our two dogs. We loved walking into town each day, exploring Acadia, experiencing the amazingness of the bar, and eating locally. We were so pleased to see all of the dog friendly restaurants and shops. Bar Harbor is a dog lovers dream! The location of this home is top notch. We were very comfortable for our entire stay. Bar Harbor is a magnificent place and I’m so happy we were able to visit. We definitely hope to come back again. We would highly recommend this lovely cottage. Thank you so much!

  15. Lauren, Travis & Evan

    Thank you for a lovely stay in Bar Harbor! It was our fifth time up here and first time staying “in town”. We has a blast with our three year old son hiking in Acadia, exploring the shore, bird watching, and eating lots of seafood! The playground around the corner was also a plus! We highly recommend the banana milkshake at CJ’s Big Dipper! Thank you for providing such a lovely little home for us to stay!

  16. A, M, A

    This was our 8th or 9th trip up here, but the first time for just the 3 of us. Our visit was filled exploring all things we had never explored before and it was like seeing the island for the 1st time! We hiked Sargent (finally!), discovered Echo Lake Beach, played in the water, took a boat ride and had amazing family time. This house was a perfect landing spot at the end of an exhausting day! Can’t wait until we come back! A, M, A

  17. Diana, Jamie, Amelia & Henry

    We had a wonderful time – for the second time – staying in your house. Our 5 year old Amelia says she lived Diver Ed – especially when he brought up the sea cucumber! We did many great hikes and walks along carriage roads. 2-year old Henry did great in the backpack and Amelia walked the whole way. We can’t wait to come back!

  18. Melissa, Glenn, Erving & Ripley

    Thank you so much for a great stay in Bar Harbor. Belle Cottage was clean, comfortable and in a great location. Above all, we appreciated being welcomed as a family with two dogs. Thank you!

    The house is terrific – not that we expected any less! Thank you again for providing us with such a delightful place. Just curious – was this house recently renovated? SO many lovely touches. Someone has quite the decorator’s gift. Thanks again.

  25. Dan

    Have been meaning to tell you we thoroughly enjoyed Belle Cottage, Bar Harbor and Acadia Park the first week of September. I would say that everything and probably most of all the cottage far exceeded our expectations. We thank you very much.

  26. Susan

    Just a note to let you know that my husband and I had an incredible time in Bar Harbor and absolutely loved Belle Cottage. You’re very lucky to call that beautiful state home. We loved Belle Cottage so much that we may actually make it an annual trip. 🙂

  27. Linda, George, Ryan, Dylan & Leja

    The shore walk is a must. Acadia during a sunny day is gorgeous!

  28. Pamela & Bryan

    Definitely loved our lunch at Jordan Pond House. Amazing view at Jordan Pond, wonderful popovers and blueberry tea, lobster stew and great place for children to run and play on lawn while you relax and enjoy the food and views. Even though the weather wasn’t the best, be barely noticed because of the beauty and wonder of this amazing island. We loved staying here at Belle Cottage. Such a wonderful, comfortable place to live for our week! Thank you.

  29. Tracey, Joe, Devin & Amber

    Belle Cottage is in a wonderful location. Close to everything and very comfortable – it was great having a nice place to bring our dog!

    The cottage was more than we could ask for! Pet friendly, very homey! Also buy a shirt at Del Sol – they are great! Dog loved it! Thanks for having us.

  32. Rich, Patty, Joyce & Kim

    Used the Island Explorer buses – very convenient and great way to bike or hike one way and ride back to town. You can get to Park Road Loop out the end of our street through highway dept, bear right at Fork. Although we did not see them – the Obama family was in Bar Harbor for vacation!

  33. Mike and Allison

    We had a relaxing but very energetic week here at the Belle Cottage. The Cottage was cozy and comfortable and we very much enjoyed our stay. Our little dog Yoda felt right at home and enjoyed the neighborhood walks!

  44. Susan & Lee

    Words cannot begin to express what a wonderful time we had in Bar Harbor. The charm of the Belle Cottage immediately made us feel at home and the magic of Acadia beckoned us back each day. We thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful local restaurants. We’re already trying to figure out when we can visit again.

  45. John & Anna

    Thank you for sharing Belle Cottage with us. The house had everything we needed including the books about Acadia hiking trails. We hiked Champlain Mt., Penobscot Mt., Gorhan Mt. the Beehive and a few others! We enjoyed relaxing on the back deck or front porch. Hope to be back soon.

  46. Andrew & Tracy

    We’ve had a wonderful time here in Bar Harbor. What a wonderful town! Belle Cottage has been a wonderful “home away from home!” We’ve enjoyed a few BBQ’s on the back patio. Thank you for sharing Belle Cottage with us. We can’t wait to share its charm with friends and family back home in Oregon. Can’t wait to return!

  47. Renee & Jenn

    We enjoyed Belle Cottage very much. We instantly felt at home. It has many little amenities that most places don’t think to have. The cottage was the perfect place to crash after a long day of hiking, biking or kayaking. We loved how close it is to downtown. We were able to venture in and check out pretty much every shop in town. We slept soundly in the comfortable master bedroom. Even our toddler slept well in his pack and play in the adjacent room. Thank you for making our vacation comfortable and relaxing. Look forward to returning.

  48. Ernie & Jen

    What a charming and comfortable cottage. A great place to return to after a day of hiking, beaching or biking. We loved the closeness to town for morning walks and evening ice cream. We look forward to another visit in the future to your lovely home.

  49. Allison, Mike & Joda

    This is our second stay at the Belle Cottage. My husband and I appreciate your opening your home to us a second time. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here in Bar Harbor. We’re hoping to visit again soon.

  51. Lauren & Tony

    Thank you for sharing Belle Cottage with us. This is our first trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia. After spending months researching rental properties, I am so happy we chose Belle Cottage. This home is charming – so full of personal touches and beautifully decorated. We have rented vacation properties all over the U.S. – Belle Cottage is at the top of our list and we plan to return. Sitting by the fireplace every evening can’t be beat!

  52. Kelly & Matt

    Had a great time in Bar Harbor despite all the rain and chilly weather; we didn’t let it ruin our fun! It was so nice to come home to Belle Cottage and sit by the wood stove. We had action-packed days. Loved the cottage – comfy and cozy!

  53. Doug, Katie, Tylee & Trooper

    Thank you for letting us stay in your home! The house was clean, wonderfully located and so welcoming. It seemed anytime I needed a spot to hang something or an empty basket, it was always available. You thought of everything anyone would ever need to feel like they are at home. This is our second year returning to MDI. We loved staying in town and being able to walk to everything. We are sad to be leaving but hope to return next year.

  54. Susie & Lee

    Thank you for letting us again enjoy what we now consider our “summer home.” This is the second consecutive summer that we have returned to Belle Cottage and once again we had a magnificent time. Thanks again and we hope to be back again next year.

    Most wonderful of many trips to Bar Harbor, ME. The cottage was perfect – so cute and homey and wonderfully air conditioned for the humid summer days. Convenient location. So sad to leave.

  57. Tom, Rhonda, Emily and Dallas

    Had an awesome time exploring Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park this week. Sunrise on Cadillac Mountain was so beautiful.

This has been a great week and we’re sorry it’s over! Until next time.

  58. Marcie, Jeff and Lucy

    Jeff and I had a very relaxing week and Lucy our little dog hiked like a trail blazer and she has one eye! She is a trooper. Lovely cottage! We tried to leave it the way we found it. Thank you!

    What a perfect little hide-away! Now we have to come back to Maine!

  66. Julie & Ken

    This was our second trip to Bar Harbor and our first stay at Belle Cottage. What a delightful place this is! So many lovely touches – more like staying with an old friend than just renting a house. Huge thanks to the owners for thinking of everything. In fact we’ve enjoyed it so much that my husband wants to move here! I’ll let him look at the winter temperatures and see what he thinks then. Thanks again!

  67. from Stowe, VT

    What a great week in Bar Harbor! Belle Cottage was such a treat. Everything we needed and thoughtful extras. We will be back!

Thanks again – Belle Cottage was worth it!

  71. Kate, Jim, Amelia and Jasper!

    Our family had the most wonderful vacation this week and staying at Belle Cottage made it all the more special. It is obvious that a great deal of thought and caring has made the the gem of a house that it is! Our eight year old loved the summit of Cadillac Mountain and kayaking at the harbor. Our yellow lab Jasper was in heaven at Little Long Pond swimming with the other dogs. Thank you for your hospitality!

Great restaurants we discovered: Burning Tree, Cafe This Way and a little place in Southwest Harbor near the library. From our 4 year old, Amelia: I love this house. I loved sleeping in the big bed. I love playing in this house with games like Apples to Apples, checkers and chess and dominoes and I love playing with my brother Henry.

    Thank you!

    I’ve traveled all over the world staying at many different kinds of accommodations. Belle Cottage is by far the most comfortable, well appointed and thoughtfully decorated, making it one of my favorites. My nieces and I had such a wonderful stay and hope to return many times. Having been born in Millinocket where much of my family still lives keeps me coming back to Maine even now that I live on Maui, Hawaii. Bar Harbor has always been a favorite vacation destination of mine and now I can’t imagine staying anywhere but Belle Cottage. Thank you for accommodating Howard! He goes everywhere I go and the layout of the cottage was perfect for us.
