Property description

Enjoy the change of seasons in Downeast Maine at our fully furnished and heated 3 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath cottage. Fronted on Eastern Bay off Frenchman Bay and close to Acadia National Park, the cottage is located halfway between Lamoine State Park and Lamoine Beach. There are excellent views of Mt. Desert Island, and seals, loons and other seabirds resting on Googins Ledge from our large deck.
While many people choose to spend their vacation entirely at the cottage it is only 22 miles by car to Bar Harbor, or six miles by boat/kayak to the Bar Harbor town pier. Picturesque Bar Harbor is full of shops, galleries, restaurants and museums, and is a popular stop for cruise ships. There are also many activities to take advantage of in Acadia National Park. The park entrance and visitor center are about 16 miles from the cottage. You can be as active or passive as you choose. If hiking and biking are not your passion, the Park Loop road will take you around much of the national park. The auto road which goes to the top of Cadillac mountain is a must do. At 1532 feet, it is the highest point on the eastern seaboard. From there you can view the first sunrise and sunset daily in the United States. Inside the park are a series of carriage roads created so that the millionaire summer people, as they were known, could traverse between their mansions. Though most of these summer homes are gone, the roads remain and are perfect for biking or hiking. There are carriage tours that you can pick up at the famous Jordan Pond House, where you can also enjoy tea and pop-overs. LL Bean sponsors the Island Explorer bus system, which lets you travel free around much of Mount Desert Island in their eco-friendly, propane powered buses.

Since this is Maine, the shore in front of the cottage is a combination of rock, sand, shells, and seaweed. The tide rises approximately 11 feet and it is about 1 1/4 miles across to the island shore. The water is deep enough that the site of Lamoine State Park was at one time used to refuel US Navy vessels with coal. Today the bay is populated with lobster boats, sailboats, and kayaks. The ocean water is brisk and refreshing, but in town there is a freshwater pond that has great swimming.

As we look right over to Cadillac Mountain it's an easy place to fall in love with. Find it at Latitude 44.45092, Longitude -68.292905. Check location on Google Maps - 8 Sand Dollar Alley, Lamoine, Maine 04605

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Lamoine:
This property has been in my family for more than 40 years. Family occupies the cottage next door. Having relatives in this area and being near enough to Boston to travel for a weekend stay made it perfect for my family.
