              Car: Recommended

              Located in Bernard, near Bass Harbor lighthouse, Southwest Harbor, and Bar Harbor, all on beautiful Mount Desert Island, which is home to Acadia National Park. Great hiking trails and carriage roads lead to breathtaking, sweeping vistas. Park has many beautiful ponds for swimming. Looking down the driveway, Mariner's Crossing cottage appears to be in the woods, but, upon peering around to the other side of the house, one sees a dazzling, panoramic view of a salt water marsh (where blue heron and egrets fish) and the rocky coastline, which is dotted with sailboats. The Swans Island Ferry will delight you as it crosses the open ocean in front of the cottage several times a day. Property is adjacent to Back Beach, and walking distance from Thurston's Lobster Pound, the town dock, the library, post office, and antique and book stores. 'Island Explorer' bus, a free, natural-gas bus that runs over the whole island, stops just up the road. Quiet, serene, restful location.

              Other Activities: Hiking in Acadia National Park. Ocean kayaking.

              Golf: Golf is available at two local clubs: the Kebo Valley Club (Bar Harbor) and the Causeway Club (Southwest Harbor).
