Mount Desert apartment description
Once you actually see Oak Haven II you will be sold!
The apartment has its own private entrance with your own separate parking/drive way. The 800 square foot apartment can compete with any HGTV design show. The beautiful oak stairs are wide and provide a gradual access into the apartment.
When you enter the apartment there is a coat closet with plenty of room for jackets and shoes. (Also has an iron, ironing board, broom, and dustpan). The stainless steel stove, frig, and dishwasher are accented by the rich, terratine tiled kitchen floor.
The kitchen is complete, including all the supplies you need for a Maine lobster feed. The kitchen opens to the oak floored, living room. The pleasing colors, wooded views, leather couch and 32" flat screen TV provide the perfect spot to relax and unwind.
Three very unique, domed sky lights provide both natural and electrical lighting in the kitchen and living room. The white tiled bathroom has a white, geranium, and light purple tiled shower. The washer and dryer are located in this room-providing you with more time to recreate and less time spent at the laundry mat.
The rest of the apartment has wall to wall rug, quieting the small hallway, office, and bedroom. The bedroom has a large bureau and closet so you can unpack and access all of your clothing. A shared door between the office and bedroom makes the office a perfect place for children or other guests to stay.
The second room has a twin bed, extra mattress, small bureau, and a skylight.
One of the more beautiful fresh water spots to swim, Somes Pond, is just a 5 minute walk or 3 minute bike ride away. This is also a great place to kayak. The rest of Acadia National Park is literally at your fingertips, offering an endless choice of outdoor activities.
The restaurants are bountiful and varied. Lastly, each village/town on Mount Desert Island offers something a little bit different. For example, Bar Harbor offers lots of shopping, dining, night life, and tours.
The quiet side of the island, Southwest Harbor, offers fishing, dining, a museum, and a different attitude.
All in all, this rental offers all of this to you at an affordable price!

Great apartment near Acadia
Great apartment near Acadia
The apartment was perfect for my husband, son and me. Very beautiful, clean, comfortable and well stocked. Close to Acadia, Bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor. Near the most beautiful little footbridge! The owners were fabulous! They invited us to go out on their boat with them and gave us lots of good tips on places to eat, fun things to do, parking in Bar Harbor and more. We LOVED Maine and would definitely stay here again.

Quiet, Secluded Getaway

The apartment was just as advertised, clean, well maintained, and stocked with pretty much everything you would need for a weeks stay. No cell service makes it a quiet, true getaway which is centrally located for access to everywhere on Mount Desert Island. The kitchen had all necessary appliances and accessories though eating space was a little limited for 4 people. The master bedroom is quite comfortable. There is ample storage space for clothing and everything else you may bring. The owners were very friendly, helpful and were very willing to give you any directions and recommendations you may need on where to go and places to eat. They were very accommodating and gracious hosts! Thank you for a great week!

The apartment was perfect in all ways; location,cleanliness, security, layout, comfort, necessities, accessiblity to ranger- lead programs, hiking, exploring, boating, adventures, restauranting, etc. Pam gave helpful hints and very clear directions making it easy to find. Having the well supplied kitchen made packing lunches for hiking and boiling Maine Lobster with fresh corn on cob from the farmer's market easy and homey. Would highly recommend this place and would stay here again. My 6 day stay without cell phone service made it a true back -to- nature , relaxing vacation with all the modern conveniences. Staying at this apartment helped make my first trip to Maine awesome and rememberable..

We had an awesome stay in the apartment. Many thanks to Beth and her husband who were amazing hosts! The apartment is new and squeeky clean. All of the necessary tools were available in the kitchen. Secluded and quiet part of island. Our daughter LOVED seeing all of the stars at night! We will definitely return for a stay next time we are in the area.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: I am an assistant principal at the Mount Desert Island High School. I am a native of MDI and I love living here. My brothers and sisters are still live on or nearby the island. I like helping visitors make the most out of their visit here.
Why the Owner Chose Mount Desert:
My husband and I designed and built our home in Somesville. We added the garage and apartment 4 years later. I had a blast painting and decorating the apartment. Many of our choices were driven by our thoughts that we may live in the apartment when we retire and we would rent out our home. So the apartment is very nice, cozy, and in a quiet, beautiful place.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Somesville, one of the villages in the town of Mount Desert, is located in the middle of the island. This location gives you plenty of options and easy access to all parts of the island. You are literally a 5 minute walk from the ocean, beautiful Somes Pond, and many quieter hiking spots.
