Property description

Outstanding locations right on ocean's edge overlooking Cadillac Mountain and other mountains of Acadia National Park. Just minutes to Acadia National Park's entrance. Virtual tour can be emailed to you (will be uploaded soon) Beach is sandy, not rocky (a hard find on the rocky coast of Maine!) Enjoy the best views in the area right from your deck. Private entrance to the beach is just steps from your door.

Acadia National Park: World famous Acadia National Park is just minutes from this home. Enjoy scenic drives on the Park Loop Road. Hike the famous carriage path trails or climb one of the many mountains. Drive up Cadillac Mountain and you will be able to look over to your seaside cottage. The views from this mountain are like no where else. Many describe this as the most beautiful spot on earth and we must agree. Find out why the Rockerfellers and the Astors built there summer homes here. Even Martha Stewart has a place on the Island. Why? 'It's a good thing...'

Kebo Valley Golf Course: Famed Kebo Valley Golf course may be one of the most beautiful courses you have every played on. But be careful, the beauty of Acadia surrounds it and may distract you while making that putt. The Bar Harbor Golf Course is also close by as are many other courses. Play them all while you are here.

Bar Harbor Shopping & Lobster Ice Cream?: Spend a day shopping the quaint shops in Bar Harbor. Or have lunch down on the pier and watch the many cruise ships which visit the beautiful island of Mount Desert. Many fine restaurants are located here which offer enough variety to satisfy even the most discerning palate. Pick up souvenirs or local crafts at the many shops.
Do you dare taste the lobster ice cream? Oh, come on, your in Maine!
