We had a wonderful time staying at Top Side July 2017. The cottage is very clean and comfortable. Paul & Ashlee are pleasant and professional. Our kids loved going on a boat ride with Paul who gives a fun and educational tour of Somes Sound. My favorite part of Top Side is the breathtaking view from the patio! You have a slightly elevated, unobstructed view of Somes Sound while the rest of the cottage is surrounded by trees. This gives you complete privacy away from the other cottages. The patio has very comfortable furniture to sit and enjoy your peaceful sanctuary.read more

We rented the Sea Breeze cottage and were very pleased with this. Every thing was clean, the location as excellent (Ok, in Acadia, nothing seems very far away). Cottage owners were wonderful and friendly and even went out of their way to get us fresh lobsters on Thursday. View from the dock was wonderful. I would highly recommend this and would stay there again in a minute.read more

We just returned from an amazing week at Sounderosa Cottage. Paul and Ashlee are fantastic hosts. We have been staying at the Chambers Oceanfront Cottages for over 30 years and always appreciate how well equipped and clean they are, not to mention how well stocked they are with wood for the fireplace. Over the past few years, there have been several attractive updates to the cottage, including the new flooring in the living area. Most of all we always enjoy the gorgeous view and the peacefulness and privacy of the location. This year, Paul took us on a cruise of Somes Sound in his boat and filled us in on some of the history as well as answering all of the questions which our family posed. It was our first time to cruise the Sound and was a special treat - Paul even provided snacks and drinks. Our grandchildren challenged the adults to a rowboat race down at the dock and enjoyed hunting for mussels and shells. It is so convenient to be able to walk down the hill to the dock and purchase lobsters for dinner. We always enjoy our lobster dinners at the picnic table on the cottage deck. The list of things we love about the cottages goes on and on. We cannot imagine staying any other place on Mt. Desert.read more

We just returned from a week at the Sea Breeze cottage, and it was a wonderful experience. The cottage was clean, comfortable, well decorated, and had everything we needed right down to linens, towels and a well equipped kitchen (including all supplies needed to cook our own lobsters). Paul and Ashley were incredibly welcoming and attentive (don't miss the chance to by some lobsters right from Paul's dock) and bent over backwards to make sure that we had a great trip. We had some special requests to help us stay with a young toddler, and they went well above and beyond to accommodate. The views of the sound are breathtaking, and the location is convenient to Bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor. Highly recommended and we will be back!read more

Amazing views from Topside Cottage! This is our first time in Maine. Pleasantly surprised by the rental. Cottage is spacious, clean, and well equipped. It has a home away from home feel. There are three docks on property to fish, swim, or launch from. Very quiet and serene. Nearby markets and lobster roll stands. Wildlife abounds.read more

What a wounderful cottage!! My wife and I spent our 25th wedding anniversary at Crow's Nest. The cottage was beautiful, well equipped and the views of Some's Sound and Sargent Mountain were exceptional. The hosts were gracious and easily accessable if needed. Fresh lobster off the boat was caught hours before and delicious! We are already planning our trip for next year and another delightful stay at Chamber's Oceanfront Cottages!read more

We're having a wonderful week here at Sounderosa! The house is great! As good or better than expected. Clean, comfortable, and the view beautiful. Very convenient location to the whole island, but quiet and private for relaxing. So glad we made this choice!read more
The views, the ammenadies are very clean, and just great people. We spent a long weekend here and my wife and I absolutely will be coming back. You have your own privet "cottage" it really is a house, that overlooks the water and you get to see boats going by and can go down to the dock and fish. If the fish arnt biting Paul will sell you lobsters that he caught himself. That is an awesome meal. We also took a boat ride on the ocean and looked at light houses and big homes. It felt like I had a privet boat and caption on my vacation. I give this place 5 stars it is close to everything but it is like you have your own house on the island. Thank you Paul and Ashley for being so accommodating.read more
Excellent views of Somes Sound; very clean and well-maintained; serene and quite location off-the-beaten-path; convenient access to all MDI has to offer; we also shopped around quite a bit in the area, and these prices were very competitive for location/size/quality of cottage.read more

We had a wonderful week staying in Topside cottage. The cottage was clean and well stocked with anything we needed. The location was great...about 20 minutes from Bar Harbor. The view of the Sound from the deck is one of a kind! Enjoyed watching boats, osprey and the sunset from our back porch. Thank you Grindles for going out of your way to help with anything we needed! Next time we are going to make it down for a fresh lobster! You run a wonderful place and we will be back!read more

We have been coming here for over 10 years. You can't ask for anything else. A great house equipped with everything you need. Dishes, pots, dishwasher, washer and dryer, etc. Lobsters at the dock are excellent. Very nice and quiet. Paul and Ashlee are the nicest hosts and their son Camden is adorable. Love it here!read more

We take a family vacation to Mount Desert Island every year and rent a house. We have two small children so we're pretty picky about the kind of place where we stay. The Crowe's Nest was large, inviting, immaculate, and homey with one of the most beautiful ocean-front views we've seen. They have everything you need to feel comfortable-I even brought several items other properties were lacking on past trips and didn't need them here. We bought lobster down on the dock three times. It was so convenient and fun to just walk down the road to get our dinner! They were a great deal too. We also took a boat ride with Paul, who was more than accommodating and pointed out some of the little-known spots on the waterfront in Somes Sound. It was the perfect night for a cruise and a private ride was the perfect way to enjoy it. We highly recommend this property for a getaway to Acadia and the surrounding area. We'll be back!read more
We had a great week at Rock Point Cottage! Paul & Ashlee were wonderful hosts. The views of Somes Sound from the cottage were incredible. Short drive to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Also, they have fresh lobster for sale on the dock with the best price on the island! We will definitely be back!read more
Chambers Cottages is my favorite place in the whole world. Been staying there every year since the early 90's. I've stayed in several of the cottages but mainly Rockpoint. It's like a second home. From Don and Marilyn to Paul and Ashley ..... They are the best. I've enjoyed sharing this wonderful place with many family members and friends. Everyone leaves in love with this heavenly and magical place.read more

My three children fell in love with the cottage from the first moment they entered the cottage til the sad moment that we had to leave! Spectacular views of Somes Sound as your backyard! Thank you Don, Marilyn, Paul and Ashlee! Down to Earth folk. - Pat - (MA) The BEST!!
We just spent 1 week in heaven.....the view of the sound & the mountains is hard to beat....having a lovely deck & a floating dock to relax upon is the absolute best. It was hard to leave this clean, comfy cottage to go traipsing about the island!! - Dana - (DE) Chambers Crow's Nest Cottage
