Property description

Cove Cottage is a simple, bright and sun filled antique cape on the edge of the Village. Its granite ledges, sloping into McHeard Cove, provide on-site swimming and canoe and kayak access to the surrounding cove and Blue Hill Bay. Adirondack chairs and a fire pit overlook the water. A south facing exterior deck provides additional outside seating and dining. All rooms but the bathroom have water views.

The Blue Hill Peninsula and Deer Isle offer many beautiful drives and hikes. The Blue Hill Heritage Trust owns 1500 acres with many wonderful walks and hikes. Other preserves also provide excellent hiking. Isle au Haut, off Stonington, is the wilderness section of Acadia National Park and is access by mail boat from Stonington. An all day trip there is one of the highlights of the area.

The area is noted for its many artists, writers and musicians. Kneisel Hall in Blue Hill offers weekly string chamber concerts by top musicians from around the world. Haystack School of Art on Deer Isle attracts leading artists and craftsmen for their summer classes. The Blue Hill Public Library and other institutions often offer readings by many of the nation's top writers who often have a local base.

There is a lively local food movement, with many small farms, fishermen and food purveyors providing superb fresh and prepared food to the local markets, farmers markets and direct to individuals.

The Blue Hill Peninsula is blessed with a collection of beautiful villages and fine buildings. Blue Hill, Castine, Deer Isle and Stonington are all well worth a visit.

Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island is less than an hour's drive from the Cottage and well worth at least a day's visit. Bar Harbor offers the greatest variety of restaurants in the area.
