              Mount Desert Island offers a wealth of activities for all ages. You can hike the carriage trails, take in the spectacular views from Cadillac Mountain or enjoy the day at Sand Beach. The 'Island Explorer' bus service is free to all riders and it makes regular hourly stops throughout the island and the park. Shopping is always a popular activity and Bar Harbor offers all of this and more. Whether it be a leisurely lunch at a sidewalk cafe, a quiet movie at one of the two theaters, or strolling though the many shops and galleries you can always find something to do. There are sightseeing and whale watcher cruises available from the town pier or you could arrange to spend a few hours aboard a 'working lobster boat.' Maybe you would just like walking the beaches searching for sea glass or playing with the sand crabs you find hiding under the seaweed. Whatever you enjoy doing its all within easy access from our cottage in the cove.

              Other Activities: hiking, shelling, Kayaking Scenic ocean cruises, Golf,

              Acadia National Park. Horse drawn carriage rides within

              Acadia. Adventure Golf, Lobster museum,Fine dining, Shopping

              Biking, Scooter rentals , etc.etc.

              Golf: Kebo Valley Golf Course is located just a short distance from downtown Bar Harbor and has been host to many Presidents and top executives. This 18 hole course is has beautiful views of Cadillac Mountain and is truly a challenge to any golfer.

              Year Purchased: 1974

              About: I grew up in Bar Harbor and lived in the house just next door. We began renting the cottage in the 80's for 6mos out of the year to help pay for the mortgage and insurance. We spend the summer months at Beachhill Pond in Otis, Maine with our two english springer spaniels. We are both retired now but we don't go to Florida winters. We enjoy the 4 seasons on MDI with our family and friends. We are very fortunate to have had such nice renters over the years that have respected our house and have returned year after year to enjoy the Island. For their return patronage and repect for our home we are truly greatful.

              Why Bar Harbor:
              Our cottage is a home away from home. We provide everything you need to make your vacation complete. This includes linens, dish and laundry soaps, pots, pans, gas grill, washer & dryer, Lobster cooker and much much more.
