Ellsworth cottage description
Built in 2001, the cottage is designed for enjoying time inside and out during our spectacular summers and rests in a quiet location 75 feet from the oceans edge at high tide. There are no roads or ledges to traverse when walking down to our private beach. We are 20 minutes from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, and only ten minutes from Bar harbor Airport and 35 from Bangor International Airport.
The cottage faces the sunset and Blue Hill Mountain across the inter-coastal ocean area of Union River Bay and Blue Hill Bay. A small set of wooden stairs steps down to a typical Maine tidal zone.
At low tide rocks draped in thick tangle of yellow-green and brown-purple seaweeds surround our pebble beach. These are called Rockweed and are an important part of our coastal eco system. The shore also has mussels and lots of chances for beach combing and exploring. A year-round brook empties into the Bay on the south side of the property and encourages birds and other wildlife to visit waters edge.
A large deck and the balcony off the second-story bedroom are great places to picnic or for sitting still and enjoying songbirds, ducks, loons, gulls, eagles, on occasion some wild turkeys, squirrels, even seals, and osprey, depending on the time of year.

Wonderful extended family vacation
Wonderful extended family vacation
My husband and I, our son and daughter-in-law (really our second daughter), two of our grandsons, and a family friend, had the opportunity to spend two weeks at this lovely house. Their family dog, our "granddog", enjoyed the water accessibility and provided us with many laughs. We bought kayaks and a small motor boat and were able to access the water easily. We made almost daily trips to Bar Harbor and Acadia which were heavenly. The weather was extremely nice with only two days of rain. There is so much to do and see. The local churches were warm and welcoming to us. Everyone enjoyed the whole ritual of buying, cooking and eating lobsters! Local restaurants offered a variety of foods which made everyone happy. The restaurant we would recommend is Helens in Ellsworth, nice people, good food and reasonable prices. The art work in the house is stunning, mostly works by Adija. Her work is available online, as we found out. The only difficult thing to deal with was the poor internet service. We enjoyed ourselves and encourage you to stay at this Bayside house.

A Great Place!

We loved the Bayside House! The property was very private and close to the water, and the house was clean and welcoming. It wasn't too far from MDI and we pretty much drove there everyday to hike or visit the shops and restaurants. I wish we would have been able to stay longer!
