There is also a working pellet stove perfect for Spring and Fall visitors The Bungalow has two twin beds (which can be pushed together) a sitting area and a full bathroom. The structures are conected by large deck with built in seats. The house is built on a slope so when your sitting on the deck you feel like your in the trees, thus, The Treehouse!

Extremely quiet surroundings, at end of a long drive belonging to Green Island. You'll have access to a launch area at the end of the drive to put in a kayak or canoe. The area is perfect for paddling around and exploring. There are two small islands to visit for a picnic or a swim, a colony of seals to watch (please try to respect their space) and if your lucky Bald Eagles and Opreys nesting and hunting in the area. This side of Mount Desert is often sunny when other parts are fog bound. The water is warmer here and more calm. Perfect for Kayaks and canoes.
