Everything at the house was in wonderful condition when we arrived. We love the house and the beautiful view. What a nice place to spend a vacation! The pet chipmunk is very entertaining â he has made us feel very welcome! We are looking forward to a wonderful week!
The house is absolutely lovely - such a beautiful place to spend some time! There was a brief shower and then a double rainbow over the water yesterday evening - what a nice a beautiful welcome! We are enjoying the lovely views, the animals and perusing the book collections. I love your collection of books! As an avid reader and history buff myself, I have enjoyed perusing all the titles and collections.
(3) The animals on the property were an unexpected treat. We enjoyed feeding them and watching their antics. By Wednesday, the large chipmunk was eating from everyone's hand. My daughter glimpsed the large deer and the raccoon eating together one evening and really enjoyed that!
We really enjoyed hiking in Acadia. The area is lovely and we look forward to returning again sometime in the future! Thank you again - we had a wonderful week.

As far as the property . . . it is beautiful and we are all so happy. We will spend all our free time on the back terrace. Two rather chubby raccoons have kept us entertained all evening. Plus, your chipmunk met us right away and ate from our hands . . . too cute.
We completely enjoyed our time here and truly appreciate the opportunity to stay in your home! Thank you so much!
It is a beautiful home and setting and the âpetsâ who joined us created memories we will cherish forever!

just wanted to drop you a brief note and let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in Hull's cove. The weather was delightful and the accommodations and surrounding wildlife were fantastic. The view was relaxing and we have some great memories. Special thanks for your advice on both expeditions and especially Mandy who was wonderful in the meals that she prepared for us.
I'll be sure to recommend Hull's Cove to my friends interested in visiting Maine

Everything was perfect! We had such a wonderful time.
This place, both your home and the area, exceeded our expectations. We loved spending mornings on the back porch having breakfast and feeding the chipmunks. Acadia had so much to do. We biked, hiked, and rock climbed . . .
This will definitely not be our only trip to Bar Harbor.
Being able to stay at Hulls Cove was the icing on the cake.
6/18 - 6/25, 2011
Sorry I have taken so long to inform you of the perfect week my family and I spent in your home.

We will be making a return trip in the near future.

You have a lovely place . . .

I wanted to send you a formal thank-you note . . . we all enjoyed our trip to Maine and found your home to be a perfect setting.
After 5 days of travel for our son, he was so happy to have such a peaceful, private home to rest in . . .
Our son is back in Afghanistan but has e-mailed us to let us know that, when he has a particularly bad day, he thinks of our time in Maine and the incomparable beauty of the landscape. What a gift.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Many blessings to you and to your family.

We are enjoying your place so much.
Thank you for everything.

9/11 9/18, 2010
You must know that this was the best vacation I can remember in many a year - almost cried to leave what was already beginning to feel like home.
9/25 - 9/30, 2010
So far, our trip has been exactly what we hoped for. We took Highway 1 up the coast and enjoyed the picturesque towns and villages along the way. Once here the house did not disappoint. We're so pleased with the decor and the setting, we'll enjoy our stay no matter what the weather. Your library is outstanding. And I am taking notes on books I will want to read when I return home. Thanks again for sharing such a great house.

Just a quick note to thank you for letting us use your idyllic property at Hulls Cove. It is a beautiful house and ideally appointed with gorgeous views of the bay.
We had a glorious week which will live long in memory.
It was a super opportunity for cousins to get to know each other better, given that they live on separate continents.
