Stayed at this bed & breakfast over a weekend. Its located close to lots of great Maine attractions like Acadia national park. From the start making reservations was easy. Its a beautiful B&B which is modern and contemporary, but has a very comfortable and homey feel. It overlooks the water, and has great areas to sit and sip a coffee...

This summer my husband and I vacationed in Maine. We had hoped to stay in Cottage By the Sea as I was impressed by their website. We were not able to get a reservation, but decided to check it out since we were in the area. I like to preview places, if possible, since my husband has a disability. I...

Beautiful house, friendly inn keepers, delicious gourmet-quality breakfast. House is new and very tastefully decorated. Stunning view of the water from the back deck. Our stay was very comfortable and relaxing. The only downside is no internet and AT&T signal is very poor.

A very comfortable, beautifully decorated B&B located near Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Warm, friendly hosts, lovely rooms with comfortable beds and turn-down service. As other reviewers have mentioned, the breakfasts are gourmet quality. Quiet setting on the ocean with patio available to sit and enjoy the view. I've stayed at many B&Bs and this is the best I've...

The hosts were very friendly and outgoing and the breakfast was exquisite. The house was beautifully decorated and it felt like we were at home. We will definitely be returning. We slept very well and would keep the windows open all night so we could smell the fresh ocean air.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are experiencing difficulty with Google Maps. From High St in Ellsworth, as you pass Walgreens on your left, get into the left lane and turn left onto Route 1 at the lights.Continue on Route 1 about 4 miles, pass Shirley's Yarn Shop on the right and cross the little bridge just beyond Shirley's. Viking Lumber will be on the right, slow down and get in the right lane. At the edge of Viking property, you will see mailboxes and a dirt road (don't worry about the dirt road, it is part of the Maine scene) with street sign that says Ranch Rd.Turn onto Ranch Rd, turn left into Kilkenny cove, we are the second driveway on the right. ... more   less
