  1. Three families

    Wonderful way to celebrate our 50th with our children and grandchildren. Loved it.

  2. Five families

    Amazing time! Beautiful house and great friends! Can’t wait to come back!

    Fourteen of us had a wonderful time- plenty of room for the adults and kids to visit and play.

    Very nice accommodations. Lots of activities and hiking and exploring to do. I will come back again some day.

    We don’t want to leave! What a wonderful place to stay- close to everything, and the views are just breathtaking <3

  3. Guests from Georgia, Connecticut, Illinios, and Ohio

    We had a wonderful time in your beautiful house. There was plenty of room for the nine of us and we had everything we needed and more! We loved the pavilion in the afternoons, coffee in the Adirondack chairs, croquet on the lower lawn, and many meals at the dining room table. We have so many memories to take home with us- our first family vacation in nine years! Thank you!

  4. Guests

    We had a wonderful week with our first cousin and wife and her twin sister and husband. We are all seniors. The weather was beautiful, except for one day. Everyone had a great time. We did 30 miles of biking on Rockefeller’s carriage trails and ate plenty of seafood. I showed the group all of the special places in Acadia. Our relatives and friends fell in love with Acadia as we have over the years.

  5. Guests from Ohio & Indiana

    What a beautiful home to share with our family! This is our 2nd trip to the Northeast and it did not disappoint.. Acadia, Cadillac Mountain-Jordan Pond- to mention just a few, filled our hearts- God’s creation at its best. We highly recommend Jordan’s for breakfast on Cottage Street (best waiters and waitresses). This home is beautifully situated. Thank you for the fun, relaxation, and the amazing views- what memories we made. Blessings!

  6. Guests from Alabama & Michigan

    We had a great stay! Family reunion- house was perfect for our needs. Thanks for a great stay in Bar Harbor.

  7. Families from MA, VA, and MD

    What a wonderful place for a reunion of our families. Beautiful views and a well stocked house make for a comfortable stay. We almost met our goal of having lobster daily! The kid’s favorites: Jordan Pond, Great Head Trail (gorgeous views!), MDI Ice Cream, Nature Cruise and Sand Beach. Thank you! P.S. We consumed 20+ pounds of lobster during our stay- so delicious.

  8. Three families

    We had a great time in Acadia! Enjoyed Sand Beach, Echo Lake, Jordan Pond, and DiverEd! And lots of hikes too. Loved having the waterfront for kayaking and skipping rocks! Thank you!

  9. Three families

    Beautiful house in a prime location! We recommend West Street Café, Upper Deck, Route 66 & Peppers (for the ice cream)! All our Acadia hikes gave beautiful views, recommend that everyone does the Beehive!! Thank you!

  10. Guests from CT, OH and VA

    We had a wonderful week bringing together our families from CT, OH and VA. Hiking, kayaking, biking, and eating everything blueberry and lobster! Thank you!

  11. Guests from New York

    The house was wonderful for our two families to enjoy time together. Our favorites for the week: hiking Cadillac, Day & Beech Mountains. We did plenty of kayaking where we saw eagles, dolphins and jellyfish. Whale watching, we didn’t see whales, but did see puffins and would still recommend. You shouldn’t miss visiting Havana, Thurston’s or the Thirsty Whale for awesome food. To get the best clam chowder in Bar Harbor, we determined after extensive research, that you must check out Upper Deck. Thanks for sharing your home with us for a very memorable week!

  12. Guests from North Carolina

    We had a great time- the weather was great and we never ran out of things to do and explore. Best hike- Acadia Mountain: a great workout. Best restaurant- Jordan’s for breakfast: yummy blueberry pancakes & blueberry pie. Make sure you experience eating a whole Maine lobster- so good! Bass Harbor’s two hour cruise on the R.L. Gott was enjoyable and we loved seeing the bald eagles and harbor seals. Mochas and lobster melts at the Independent were a nice treat after shopping in the afternoon. Lobster rolls at the West Street Café were yummy. We caught some brook trout in Bubble Pond and the views from Cadillac Mountain can’t be beat. Also loved climbing the rocks at Otter Cliffs. But if you’re home- get some ice cream from Pepper’s or jump into the cool Maine waters for an afternoon swim in Lake Wood right up the street. Not enough time and too many places to go- as always. Can’t wait to come back!

  13. Family gathering 9/2/17

    We so enjoyed our stay here. House was perfect for us and we had a great time exploring MDI.

  14. The Iowa 8

    Loved eating lunch in the gazebo:-) The adirondack chairs were so comfortable to enjoy the ocean from! Kayaking was quite a joy! Thanks so much.

  15. Clarissa, Ana, Lisa, Todd and Karin

    What a wonderful week. We were blessed with near perfect weather. The house and grounds are beautiful. We loved the kayaks and canoes. We learned (to much hysterical laughter) that the small canoes is only for 1 person not 1 adult and 1 child. Lulu’s Lobster Boat Tour was great, as was walking in Acadia, eating lobster and mussels. We even tried Lobster Ice Cream! Thanks for sharing your house.

  16. Three families from Texas

    The house is beautiful! It worked perfectly for our family escape from the Texas heat. We hiked the trails of Acadia, kayaked/canoed on the property, went whale watching, took a nature/seal/lobster tour, two ghost tours and ate copious amounts of seafood (Thurstons is awesome!) Mini golf at Pirate’s Cove was fun for all ages as well. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

  17. Three families from PA

    Second time staying at your most comfortable home. You can just feel any tension you might have fade away. My son stayed up to 4:00am just looking out over the bay. The kids scrambled over the rocks in Acadia and Seawall and enjoyed the kayaks. Shopped in Bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor and ate at Beal’s and Mainely Meats – great ice cream! Thank you again for sharing your home. It’s hard to leave.

  18. Megan & Jimmy and clan

    Your home is beautiful! Thank you for sharing it with us. We loved our week in Acadia, Bar Harbor and the surrounding islands! So peaceful and beautiful.

  19. Carol

    We absolutely loved the home!! We made use of the kayaks and canoe and adored the view from the home. It was perfect for my large crowd. Everyone had a “corner” to go to if they wanted privacy. Covend has spoiled me for anything else!

  20. Guest

    Cool and pleasant, wonderful house with spectacular views! Ocean Path in Acadia was one of many highlights. A short visit to Islesford was great!

  21. Pete

    We had a great time. MDI is spectacular- hiking, biking, boat cruise, blueberries and lobster, lobster, lobster. Thanks!

  22. Owen

    Great trip! Beautiful island!

  23. Steve

    We enjoyed watching the boats and cruise ships from the beautiful house. On two gorgeous days, we hiked Champlain Mountain, the bowl to Sand Beach and biked from the Visitors Center to Jordan Pond and back. Lastly, we went to Bass Harbor Lighthouse and Thurston’s. A truly perfect week!

    P.S. We also took the canoe out for a spin. It handled beautifully!

  24. Miller

    We had a wonderful time in Bar Harbor and the house was beautiful and very accommodating. Hiked all over Acadia, took a horse carriage ride in the park as well. Lulu Lobster boat tour was well worth it, very informative and saw a lot of seals. Had a great whale watching tour seeing a lot of whales. Ended the week with a relaxing kayak trip. Little Anthony Sports Bar has wonderful pizza and meatballs!!

    Thank You 🙂

  25. Connie

    We had such a wonderful time staying at this beautiful house and exploring Acadia! We loved watching the boats on the ocean from the chairs.

  26. Rita

    We had four generations of our family together here at your beautiful home. This house was great in accommodating all of us. We read and drank coffee on the porch with such a great view, went into Bar Harbor for some great meals and took hikes on the scenic trails in the park. We had great weather and loved spending time with our family at your home. We will definitely be returning to Maine in the future.

  27. Cami Lynn

    We have had a delightful time! Thanks for sharing your beautiful house and the fantastic view! Bar Harbor rocks!

  28. Camilyn

    We celebrated America’s birthday and the 100th anniversary of Acadia National Park. The house and the weather were great. Our stomachs are filled with lobster. Spirits are renewed!

    The house is perfect-spacious, great location to town and the park and a beautiful view of the cove. Thank you for sharing with us! Don’t miss Thurston’s Lobster Pound, Jordan’s french toast, Sweet Pea Farms and bike the carriage roads!

  29. Justin

    The house was perfect! The views are breathtaking we love Maine and will return again!

  30. Emily

    We had an amazing stay at your beautiful lake home. The memories we had from this trip will not soon be forgotten!!

  33. Suzy

    Lovely and comfortable home in a great location. We had a terrific week!

  34. Andrea

    Great to be together to celebrate family birthdays. Watching the tide roll away is very habit forming and the cove provides the perfect backdrop for every vacation pastime (eating, drinking, talking etc). We are so happy you have found this peaceful home and look forward to many more returns. Thanks you for a wonderful time.

  35. Julia

    We had a wonderful time in your lovely home and enjoyed all the wonderful sights.

  36. Mary

    What a wonderful stay we had at Covend- individual suites for each family group, perfect view, good weather and cozy surroundings. The canoe and kayaks were perfect entertainment for the little guys. Proximity to everything was a bonus. We hope to stay again.

  37. Steve

    Covend met the needs of our whole family wonderfully and its great location near the Acadia Park Visitor Center made for easy access to all park facilities. The house has a quaint, homey and warm atmosphere. We had a wonderful week.

  38. Joyce

    Your fantastic house was wonderful for our family vacation. This was the first time we all were able to vacation together. Loved the view, kayaks and canoe were great to have available, house is close to all activities. We all totally enjoyed sharing your home and will certainly recommend it to others.

  39. Josh

    Your home is beautiful and a great location for the many local attractions. We hiked, biked, shopped and many other things. Fresh lobster at Trenton Bridge is a treat not to be missed. The Jordan House is a tradition not to be missed either. The natural beauty of the island can be enjoyed many ways, be sure to find this out for yourself. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

  40. Myer

    We had a great time staying at your house with an awesome view of the bay. Hiking in Acadia was great. We loved the park and would definitely consider coming back. Thank You!!

    We loved staying in this beautiful home with spectacular vistas. The week went by much too quickly.

    The first of what we hope will be many fun visits to Hull’s Cove. All is lovely!! This house cements the infamous rally cry “‘member Maine”!

  43. Pete

    We had a great time. MDI is spectacular- hiking, biking, boat cruise, blueberries and lobster, lobster lobster! Thanks!
