We could not have imagined a better landing place than this lovely cottage and its even more kind hosts. From the moment we met Roddy and her husband Bob, we felt like we had landed at a second home. We were weary from the drive, but her warmth and delicious brownies re-energized us!
The cabin is JUST as described (lovely, spacious, warm, equiped) and the surroundings are even better. Frenchman Bay, which the cabin is on, offers not only breathtaking views but an escape from reality. Pictures can not do it justice.
When the tide is low, bring a book or magazine and walk down backyard bluff and out to the island. Climb up the rocks to the highest point, sit down, and breathe. You will be in a moment that no filter, airbrushing, or amenity could make any better. It's a moment that, even though we live in Florida and over 1,200 miles away, we can always go back to in our minds---- and a moment we will be looking forward to recreating again as soon as life allows.
Roddy and Bob, we thank you sharing your home and your piece of heaven with us. We will never forget it.
We were in awe when we walked in to this cozy cottage on Sullivan Harbor! It is so cute and cozy and we loved every minute of our stay. Roddy was so sweet and even offered to let us stay an extra night because she didn't have other guests checking in until Thursday, but unfortunately we couldn't because of our itinerary. We will definitely recommend her listing to friends/family and we will be back ourselves for a longer stay! Thanks again!

Roddy's Lovely Cottage was as gorgeous, warm, and welcoming as we expected, and then some! The cottage itself is well-kept, cute and comfortable, and the hosts are perfectly accommodating, helpful, and respectful of the guests' privacy. On arriving, we were taken through a local map, shown the property, lake, and kayaks (!), and treated to warm and lovely conversation, all of which set a great tone for our stay.
The area is great for driving, hiking, and food, so it's hard to complain -- so long as you go in the summer. Short trips will get you to Acadia, Ellsworth, Bar Harbor, and any number of delicious finds along the way. Only one caveat: you're in Maine. Check open/close times and days before getting in the car at 10am and driving 45 minutes to that awesome Lobster shack that doesn't open until dinner. And if that does happen, no worries, just keep driving, it's gorgeous.
We had such an amazing time at Roddy's place! This was our second time there because we love it so much! We hiked around Schoodic and the Southwest Isle in Acadia, which were both so beautiful, and we went out in the kayaks and saw a harbor seal! Roddy was so generous and kind, and she is just an awesome host. We already can't wait to go back!
The cottage was clean, cozy and the perfect place for us to spend our first time in Maine. It was conveniently located within 35-45 minutes of Mount Desert Island and even closer to the Schoodic Penninsula. The cottage was fully equipped with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Roddy was an excellent host. We were greeted with fresh baked cookies which were a welcomed treat after a long drive. Roddy was extremely helpful with recommending places for us to eat and visit. She gave us our privacy but was readily available if we needed anything. I would definitely recommend the cottage on Frenchman Bay!
Roddy was the perfect host! She made us feel right at home and treated us like we were part of her family. She gave us great recommendations about what to do and where to eat.
Her place is amazing: a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful nature of Maine. We took a kayaking trip from the backyard with Roddy's boats and hiked through Arcadia National Park. The house is very well equipped and beautifully decorated - it has everything you need and more!
We were very sad to leave and would love to come back!
What a perfect place to launch our Acadia adventures. The cottage was lovely and beautifully appointed with everything we could need! We had a wonderful stay. Roddy is lovely to chat to and came to ask if we needed anything. I would absolutely recommend the cottage on Frenchman's Bay!
Lovely property and a warm welcome! Roddy has a beautiful home that made for a very comfortable stay - great location and great people!
Roddy's cottage was very easy to find off the road yet felt secluded and private. The private beach out back was relaxing with a beautiful view. Excellent spot if you're interested in visiting Acadia but want to avoid the tourist motels along the way. Thanks, Roddy!
Roddy is an excellent host. We are very sad that we never got to meet her, but she made sure that we can find the cottage easily and that we go to all the spots in the area. I would definitely recommend roddys place to anyone looking to visit Arcadia.
Roddy and her husband are wonderful person, super warm and welcoming. Nice to meet them at home
Super couple de voyageurs, très sympathiques et respectueux, je recommande !
What a pleasure it's been to host Roddy and Bob, they were so nice, friendly and interresting. I wish they could have stayed longer!
I hope you'll have the chance to meet them one day.
Même avec la barrière de la langue, nous avons pu nous comprendre !
J'avais préparé des petits textes en anglais pour faciliter leur venue.
Je les ai trouvé très agréables et généreux : en partant, ils m'ont offert une jolie plante ! Merci beaucoup
