Very Good

“Comfortable, relaxing and even better than the internet pictures. Location to die for.”

Reviewed 4 May 2015

Hi Joy, We have now returned home and I wanted to thank you for letting us stay in your fantastic holiday home. The location is just perfect and I couldn't wait to wake in the morning to see the view from the bedroom window. The house itself is so well planned and appointed with everything to make a holiday trouble free and relaxing. Our family reunion was doubly memorable because of the amazing surroundings and property. Acadia is certainly a stunning destination and we enjoyed it during a quiet time which suited us perfectly. I really did not want to leave and would really have liked to extend our trip for a lot longer. Thank you. Kind regards Juliet

Response from the owner Thank you for sharing your experience, Juliet! We hope you can return to Acadia some day. We'd love to have you - and are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Happy memories! - Joy & Peter

“Beachcomber's Paradise”

Reviewed 20 May 2014

Blue Heron Tide was a wonderful set up for our large family (7 adults and one toddler). We all fit very comfortably, with some folks getting up early to walk the beach and others staying up late to play cards. The space is nice enough to feel like you are on a nice vacation and not so nice that you fear for a toddler touching everything. The beach access is also amazing. We had a few beachcombers in the group, and they never tired of finding shells and sea glass on the beach. This is a truly special spot.

Response from the owner We are so glad the cottage was comfortable for your party. We designed it to be family friendly and being right on the shore has advantages too!

“A piece of paradise on MDI”

Reviewed 9 Oct 2013

This was the third time we have stayed at Blue Heron Tide, on Duck Cove in beautiful Tremont, Maine. As with previous visits, we found the accommodations to be welcoming, clean, and spacious. The master bedroom/bath combo provides amazing views... it was hard to leave the room each morning. The ample kitchen and large dining room table provided the perfect setting for a group meal prior to our century bike ride around the Island. And being off the beaten path, away from cruise ships and tourists, again provided us with the sense of what the real acadia is all about. We cannot wait to return in 2014!

Response from the owner Thank you for sharing your experience, Joanne. We are happy the cottage provides such a great experience, and is part of your Century Bike tradition as well!

“An amazing 2 weeks in paradise”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2013

We went to Maine with the family to celebrate my 60th birthday. The house was clean, spacious and oh so comfortable. Everything we needed in the kitchen to cook the massive amounts of crab cakes and lobster. Location was perfect being a 5 minute drive to Southwest Harbor and about a half hour from Bar Harbor. We awoke every morning to an amazing view of the water. so relaxing. We will not hesitate to go back and stay in such a special location. Stan and amy Dumoch Woodbury, Ct

Response from the owner Thank you, Stan and Amy. We're so glad you enjoyed your celebration here - and fabulous crab cakes and lobster! Come back any time! Best wishes from Joy & Peter

“Magnificient Cottage with great water views that never end!”

Reviewed 15 May 2013

Our recent stay at the Blue Heron Cottage was wonderful. My husband and two college daughters stayed there. The cottage could easily accommodate another family or generations within families. We had every thing we needed. The kitchen was well appointed. The beds were just like home. The views of the water never ended. I only wish our stay was longer, and that we weren't sightseeing so much. Blue Heron was a real haven when the day was over. Close to Southwest Harbor and acadia. I would go again in a heartbeat~Blue Heron is a real find!

“Home away from home”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2012

Our daughter and her fiancé decided to have their wedding up in Southwest Harbor, me on his grandmother's ocean view property. This was a 5 hour away location and we needed a place to stay for the week to set everything up and be our home away from home!! Finding and staying at the blue heron was a God send!! The house had everything we needed. There was lots of room on the big day for all the girls to get make up, hair and dressed! Plenty of bathrooms and large living, dining area. We can thank the thoughtful inclusion of an iron for all the groomsman including the Groom for having well pressed shirts.. This is a Beautiful clean house with breathtaking views!! I cannot thank Peter and Joy enough for accommodating our needs and letting us share their home to make it a home away from home for our daughter's wedding!! Thanks again!!

“Paradise on the quiet side”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2012

Our family has rented from the Cutrones on Mount Desert Island for three years, and we have been so pleased with Blue Heron Tide as our destination. The large and spacious house is perfect for a large family, several couples, or families with kids. The setting on Duck Cove on the "quiet side" of MDI is gorgeous, with a rolling green lawn framed by the rocky coastline of Duck Cove. Watching the tide roll in and out, capped off by beautiful acadia sunsets, makes for a truly remarkable experience. We have found all amenities in the cottage perfect for a few days or week-long stay. Everything is always clean and neat upon arrival, all furniture and rugs in very good condition. The kitchen layout is spacious and the large family dining room is great for hours of togetherness and eating! The kids love the downstairs ping pong table and a place to "hang out" away from the adults. All of this combined with the excellent communication and helpfulness of the Cutrones guarantees that we will be back!

Response from the owner Thanks, Joanne!

“The best”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2012

We've rented a great many vacation homes over the decades. It was the consensus of my family that this was the best. Great location. Very comfortable, well-equipped & furnished house.

Response from the owner Thank you, Jed! It doesn't get any better than that! So happy you had a great experience. Hope to have you back!

“Calming cove with beautiful sunsets”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2012

Thank you for allowing us to stay and enjoy your beautiful home. We were pleasantly surprised with the house layout and large amount of space. No matter the weather, we enjoyed the views of Duck Cove. The low tides allowed us to search for sea glass. We loved that we could just put our kayaks in right outside the door. After long days exploring the trails of acadia Park we looked forward to relaxing at your home.We have been renting on MDI for over 12 yrs and this home is certainly one of the best we have rented due to our family size and the availability of water access. Our family had no complaints and we highly recommend Blue Heron Tide as your home away from home while visiting acadia National Park and all of MDI!

Response from the owner Thank you very much for sharing your experience. We're so happy you were able to enjoy the water and the shore, and that the house was well suited to your family. Great!

“glorious property and wonderful stay in Maine”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2012

Thank you Joy and Peter for making our stay perfect! The property is just amazing and the house perfect for families. On the "quiet side" of Mount Desert Island but still with easy access to acadia and Bar Harbor. Plenty of space for the kids and adults to split off and not be on top of each other, a bathroom linked to every bedroom, a fully stocked kitchen- perfect for our two families (3 adults and 5 kids aged 10-13). The views from the house are stunning. We plan to return next summer!!!
