Perfect Holiday Get-Away!
We loved everything about staying at Rocko's Cottage! The full size kitchen was well stocked with cookware, etc. The place was so clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. While being in town, we never felt crowded or annoyed with neighbor noise! The town is very quiet at this time of year, some shops still open and a few restaurants, which suited us just fine. Getting to the park is easy and beautiful, as always! I would not hesitate to stay at Rocko's again :)
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and hope you are able to come back again.

Great Location in Bar Harbor
Perfect location for driving to Acadia or walking to Bar Harbor. Very nice property.
Excellent value and location. Everything we needed. Very nice to have books and brochures on Acadia provided. Easy access to park entrances. Enjoyed the gas powered wood stove. Nice kitchen with very clean appliances (also washer and dryer). Great to have parking spot and not have to drive into town or pay parking fees. Easy and pleasant walk to main Bal Harbor shopping/dining. We loved walking into town on the shore path! Recommend Gaylen's happy hour and early bird lobster dinner, take-out pizza from Reel Pizza, whoopie pies from Pink Pastry (all flavors).
Be aware when planning a trip in late October that the park and town may be slowing down services or closing for the season. We visited Oct 17-23 and had a wonderful stay but some businesses had closed.
This is the first rental that felt like home. House was very homey, clean, comfortable and quiet for being located in town. Location enabled walking through town and avoiding parking issues. It had all the amenities needed or wanted when renting. Definitely recommend.
Perfect home in perfect location !
Rocko's Cottage felt like home as soon as I entered. This dog-friendly property is clean, comfortable, and well equipped. The location is perfect! It is an easy walk to all the shops and restaurants of Bar Harbor, and it's just a few miles away from the entrance to Acadia. Rick and Lisa are the perfect hosts! I definitely hope to return again!
We are located in the heart of downtown just minutes from the entrance to Acadia National Park, free island shuttle bus, numerous boat tours and whale watching.
