Why Fayelle Anderson chose Bar Harbor
It is the best of both worlds - privacy and wooded country setting with close access to all parts of the island. It is a great escape from the crowds and a wonderful retreat to return to at the end of a busy day exploring the island.

A hidden gem!
We loved our stay at the gardeners cottage. Our hosts were welcoming and their cottage is warm and cozy, providing great detail to meeting our needs. The bed is very comfy and the shower has great pressure! It was a pleasure to come back to the cottage after a busy day exploring Acadia national park. The fall color was glorious! Thank you Fayelle and Michael for taking such good care of us!
Beautiful stay in cozy cottage.
This location was hands down one of the best rentals I have stayed. So cute and cozy. It felt like home away from home.
Fantastic stay at Gardeners Cottage
We really enjoyed the Gardeners Cottage. It was an extremely enjoyable stay. The cottage is well designed, very comfortable and stocked. It is very close to Acadia national park and some very good lobster! The kitchen with its sun room was a great way to start the day with some coffee and a view of the Gardens (one day there was a large buck sharing coffee with me!). It was a great experience and we hope to return and do it again.
Practically Perfect in Every Way!
Read all the reviews - hard to find adjectives to add onto but this home was lovely. Simply lovely: spotless, organized, thoughtful. Seriously have never been pampered like this in a VRBO.
The hosts should give a tutorial on customer service.
Only mild disappointment was that we couldn't see the garden unless we looked out the upstairs bedroom. The pictures show a clear view but those couple of bushes are too high now. In the picture, it had 2 Adirondack chairs facing this garden but they weren't there. (Even if they had been, we wouldn't have been able to see anything.). Outdoor seats are straight back benches. Good for a short sit but not to lounge. The patio was lovely and abuts the long driveway/road. Hardly ever any car or foot traffic, but there was a bit though not bothersome.
Fayelle's flowers? Oh my. It's like an english garden. Beautiful.
We had a wonderful week and feel refreshed. Would highly recommend and hopefully get to come again someday.
A lovely and fully-equipped house in a beautiful garden with great hosts.
Awesome cottage in great location
The Gardener’s Cottage is the perfect place for a couple to stay near Acadia NP. It is very quick and easy to get into the Park or to Bar Harbor. The rental is in a beautiful and very peaceful setting in a clearing in the woods, which is well-maintained by the owners who live next door. The cottage was immaculately clean and tastefully decorated with antique furniture. The owners supplied everything possible we could have needed. There were plenty of paper products, not just a starter supply. We didn’t have to purchase anything besides our food and drinks.
My husband and I have rented through VRBO many times, but I would say this has definitely been one of the best experiences with an owner we have ever had. They’ve thought of every detail and are wonderful hosts.
Gardener's Cottage is perfectly situated just north of the busy downtown district of Bar Harbor. Bar Harbor Cellars Farm Winery is about 1 mile away, offering free tours and tastings daily as well as brick oven baked pizza at Sweet Pea's Cafe. Or head north 3 miles to Atlantic Brewery's free tours and tasting followed by the island's best BBQ at Mainely Meat BBQ.
