Property description

Our cottage is located 3 miles to down town Southwest Harbor on the quiet side of MDI. There are several entrances to Acadia nearby, Seawall, Wonderland and Ship Harbor to name a few. Our Cottage has electric heat, a wood burning stove and wood is provided. The vaulted ceilings, white washed pine walls and a glass front make the living area very spacious. Towels and bedding are provided for the 2 bedrooms and sleep sofa. We are on the western side of Mount Desert Island, home of Acadia National Park. There is a row boat, and kayak at the water's edge, a gas grill, picnic table and hammock for our tenants use. Back Beach, for exploring what the sea left behind, and Thurston's Wharf ,a restaurant out over the harbor, are within a mile from the cottage. All of Acadia is just a few minutes away from this peaceful spot and the call of the loon is a memory you won't soon forget. We will be happy to arrange a ride on one of the whale watching ships or furnish the refrigerator with bread, milk and the essentials so you don't spend your time shopping for groceries when you can be exploring Acadia and enjoying fresh Maine Lobster. Take in all the sights and sounds of Acadia National Park. Explore the natural beauty and adventure on your own or join in one of the many Ranger talks and guided tours. Take a carriage ride or bike Cadillac Mountain. Relax on the deck or in the hammock. Take the free Islander Shuttle and visit Jordan Pond Tea House and the Oceanarium.

Bike Acadia!: Enjoy all of the activities of Mt. Desert Island - Hiking, fishing , bicycling on carriage roads, kayaking on lakes and ocean, visiting museums and a lighthouse, whale watching, shopping, dining at lobster pounds and restaurants, sailing, and riding ferries to outer islands. Visit Bar Harbor and watch a world class cruise ships come in to Frenchman Bay.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1974

About: We purchased 2.5 acres on Bass Harbor in 1974 and built our home and the cottages in the following years adding upgrades and renovations almost yearly. We are native to Mount Desert Island, have 2 grown children and 4 almost grown grandchildren. We enjoy boating the Maine coast, kayaking the local waters and walking the trails of Acadia.

Why Tremont:
This cottage is all wood, no smelly carpets, is located right at the water's edge on Mill Creek off Bass Harbor and is only 3 miles to down town Southwest Harbor and 20 minutes to down town Bar Harbor. Entrances to Acadia are all around us.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Sitting in the swing at the water's edge with morning coffee and again at the end of the day is a peaceful start and ending to every day..
