Mount Desert cottage description

The nature enthusiast will enjoy the comfort and location of this charming new cottage on 11 acres beside Sargeant Mountain Brook and bordering Acadia National Park. Follow the brook to Acadia National Park's 45 miles of rustic carriage roads for hiking, birding, snow shoeing or cross country skiing. Minutes from your front door is the Giant Slide Trail which follows a ravine thru evergreen forests to the top of Sargeant Mountain. The free Island Explorer Bus stops at your front door for further explorations of Mt. Desert Island. Just a half mile away is the more remote village of Northeast Harbor, recognized as one of the prettiest villages on the coast of Maine. Asticou Azalea Gardens are a half mile away, known for its visual delights and Japanese sand garden. After a wonderful day of adventure, relax in your sunny cottage, brew a cup of coffee or tea in your gourmet kitchen, read many of the books by Maine authors or play games by the wood stove.


Next door neighbors: The owners of Sweet Cottage live right next door and operate a timber framing business. We would be happy to give you a tour of the shops and the house . We are always interested in meeting our neighbors. Directions on cooking and eating your lobsters will be given, if needed.

The Village of Northeast Harbor: Sweet Cottage is only a 1/2 mile to Northeast Harbor. Northeast Harbor is one of the more remote villages on Mt. Desert Island and does not experience the same crunch of tourist activity found in the neighboring town of Bar Harbor. It is considered one of the prettiest villages on the coast of Maine, highlighted by a remarkably beautiful harbor. It's local waters offer some of the finest sailing conditions in New England.

                          People have been drawn to the rugged coast of Maine throughout history. Awed by its beauty and diversity, early visionaries donated the land that became Acadia National Park. The park is home to many plants and animals, and the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic coast. Today visitors come to Acadia to hike granite peaks, bike historic carriage roads, or relax and enjoy the scenery. Hike down to Somes Sound the only fjord on the East coast of the US. Follow the brook past the water fall to the top of Sargent mountain. Located In the center of Mount Desert Island. The cottage is beside Sargent brook. Rural area off the beaten track. About 160 feet away from the 2 lane Sound Drive. Cottage is facing south for direct solar gain. Very quiet at night with many stars visible. Lay in the hammock over the brook and look at the stars.

                          Other Activities: hiking, gardens, museum, shops, galleries
