Mount Desert cottage description

Charming and private lakeside cabin on Mt. Desert Island close to Acadia National Park, one of the most beautiful parks in the United States. Built in the 1940s by a local family, the cottage has been owned since 1968 by our family and was remodeled in the late 1970s by a master woodworker. There is an eat-in kitchen, and the living room has a fireplace great for roasting marshmallows. There is a private dock, raft and a canoe for your use. This is a unique retreat from the bustle of the connected world, a place to listen to loons and rest, relax, swim and boat. Each bedroom sleeps two; the master bedroom has its own bathroom with a claw-foot tub. The other bathroom has a shower.

There is a lovely area to sit outside under the pines, along with a screened-in porch with a stunning view of Echo Lake and the Acadia and Beech mountains. This is a beloved family retreat, not simply a rental property, and available June, July and September.
