Duck Cove Cottage is a wonderful retreat for a couple! It is roomy, well appointed beautifully decorated and sparkling clean. The king bed is so comfy with top quality bedding and there are spectacular views from every large window. It has all you could possibly need for your stay from a washer and dryer to a super well-equipped kitchen. The cottage sits on a scenic bay in a woodsy setting and we enjoyed sipping wine on the large deck and watching the birds on the water. Our hosts were very communicative and helpful which we appreciated We had a perfect week in this little slice of heaven!

Duck Cove Cottage certainly warrants a review. This placed exceeded 5 stars. We booked this home based on the reviews and truly they were accurate and more so. This is a slice of heaven. Tt is arduous to summarize how beautiful, immaculate and pristine the house, grounds and environment were presented; therefore the pictures do not do it justice. When we pulled up our hosts, Debi and Gary were there to give us a warm welcome. They were very accommodating, personable and seasoned with a wealth of information. Places to eat, shop and site see. The home itself offered all amenities you needed and so elegantly decorated. THE HOSTS ARE THE PEOPLE YOU WANT AS YOUR VERY OWN NEIGHBOR AT HOME. Everyday, you woke up to the delightful sounds of peace and nature calling. Ventured everyday to their recommendations and enjoyed every bit of it. Most enjoyable was Acadia National Park, Stonington, Bar Harbor and Ellsworth. Each offered its own beauty and history. Wished we would have taken more than a week because there was so much more we wanted to do; therefore, I guess we will be booking another trip. We just cannot put all this into words. Perfect Maine vacation. Lastly, it was difficult to depart because of our hosts and their generous hospitality. Fondly, from Racine, Wisconsin. Thank you

My husband and I spent a week at this beautiful property. The pictures don’t do it justice - the cottage is large, comfortable, and well maintained. The views are fantastic and the owners keep the entire property grounds (which are large) beautifully landscaped. The cottage is extremely well equipped for cooking, and the owners are attentive and available for any questions or recommendations. The location is great for exploring the Blue Hill Peninsula and beyond - we spent time in Blue Hill, Deer Isle/Stonington, and in Acadia at both Isle Au Haute and Mount Desert Isle. It’s a fantastic spot if you’re looking for something peaceful, homelike, and conveniently located but away from tourist crowds. We highly recommend a stay!

Our trip t 59 Duck Cove was a total surprise for my wife. It was our 50th Anniversary. I told her that it might be very rustic with two single beds but it DID have coffee pot. Since we celebrated our honeymoon in a northern Minnesota cabin in the woods, Duck Cove was PERFECT in all respects. It had all that we needed and more. Gary was VERY HELPFUL We drove through little beautiful little towns overlooking the pristine water with lobster boats. We had never been in a place like that before.. They is a adequate super market with a gas station in Blue Hill. We kayaked in Walkers Pond. We watched lobster men load their boats in Blue Hill and Stonington. Blue Hill is the largest town around. Sandys is good place to eat. Per Gary's recommendation, we celebrated our anniversary at the ARBORVIN Restaurant. Food was superb and the service was excellent. The Best thing we like about our trip is that they were no 7-11s McDonalds etc. There is one subway in Blue Hill. Tourist trinkets are had to find. I want to thank Gary for a memorable experience. I am totally sure that you will enjoy yourself to the MAX. This was ourfirst trip outside Virginia since the pandemic started. Nancy and Dave

We had a great week at the Duck Cove Cottage. The owner, Gary, was very helpful before and during the visit. The cottage is just as beautiful live as seen in the pictures. It is well stocked. I don't know what you would need that wasn't available. We were able to get in five hikes in the area. Blue Hill Mountain has awesome view. Did two kayak paddles around Herrick Bay. Very pretty with several bald eagle sightings. In general, a nice location to kick back and relax.

Duck Cove is a magical, quiet place and the Randolphs are consummate hosts who pay extraordinary attention to detail. The cottage was immaculate, the kitchen very-well appointed and the quality of sheets, towels and other items was superior to other rentals. The grounds are landscaped beautifully. We felt at home immediately and can't wait to go back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Duck Cove Cottage. The apartment and grounds are well maintained in a beautiful setting on a quiet cove. Pretty much what most people from away would imagine a Maine coastal cottage to be. We hated to leave everyday to go on our planned trips to the Schoodic and Mt. Desert Island areas. Nearby Brooklin is a perfect little small town and we felt welcomed by the locals when we stopped in at the Brooklin General Store. Blue Hill is about 12 miles away and the best place to buy groceries, beer, wine etc. If you are planning on attending or visiting the Wooden Boat School, it's just a couple of miles down the road. The cottage has a very functional and well equipped kitchen. The owners have left a lot of maps and local information which was very helpful in planning our days away from the property. The porch facing the waterfront is a delightful place to sit and read or enjoy an evening glass of wine. We highly recommend this property if you want small town charm and to get away from the crowds and noise. We'll be back next year!

Duck Cove Cottage has everything you need for a restful stay. It has a beautiful, quiet and private setting. We enjoyed viewing the cove during the different stages of the tide. The cottage is spacious and clean. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. The washer and dryer were very useful. It has a good location. You are about an hour from Acadia National park. but yet you can also easily reach some great Maine coastal destinations (Deer Isle, Stonington, Castine, Penobscot). The hosts were helpful and will go the extra step to make you feel welcome. It was a great experience!

Gary and Debi are wonderful hosts. The home was nicely appointed and the views from the deck and windows were great. We enjoyed coming back to the home after shopping at quaint shops in town, hiking in Acadia, and eating lobster!
