Lamoine cottage description

Vacation at this fully furnished and heated 3 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath cottage with a large deck and view of Mt. Desert Island. Fronted on Mt. Desert Narrows off Frenchman Bay and close to Acadia National Park the cottage is located halfway between Lamoine State Park and Lamoine Beach. Seals and seabirds are frequent visitors, resting on Googins Ledge in view of the cottage. It is eight miles to Ellsworth for shopping, cinema, and hospital care. It is also convenient to many restaurants and activities which cater to vacationers.

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 will be visited by 138 cruise ships between May and October 2014. 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 that 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 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. 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 kayakers. The pier that remains is a great fishing spot and the short walk over to the state park would be a great activity. The ocean water is brisk and refreshing, but in town there is a freshwater pond that has great swimming.

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, Hancock, Maine 04605
