Mount Desert cottage description

Duck Duck Goose is a serene retreat that allows its guest to be completely ensconced in the traditional Maine way of life. This recently built carriage house, tucked away in the Maine woods, sits on the edge of Duck Cove, overlooking Blue Hill Bay and all of its lovely islands. The privacy and beauty allow for quiet walks along the rocky coast beach, sitting on the private dock viewing a delightful sunrise or sunset, and viewing stars that can only be seen in the Maine skies. Located on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island allows for seclusion and reflection while still having the small towns within comfortable driving distance. Acadia National Park makes up the island of MDI and is a short drive away. The mountains to hike, roads to bike, and water to paddle or boat, make this location more special than most. This quaint carriage home was finished in August 2012 and offers a comfortable, warm cottage feeling with all the makings of your own home. The first floor living space includes your entry, laundry, full bath, family room and bedroom with two double beds, not to mention three sets of lovely French doors never leaving you without a view of the water. The second floor invites you to its grand living/dining space with overhead loft and open kitchen, allowing all guests to be near. There are also two bedroom on this floor, one with queen bed and the other with 2 twins. The bathroom provides a soaking tub, a separate shower, a private loo and forest views. Every room has dimmed lighting, comfortable seating, water views and immaculate furnishings. The dining table hosts 8 all the while taking in the ocean breezes and the beautiful outdoors. Not one stone was left unturned. While relaxing in the warm comforts indoors, you will still want to find your way outdoors. Along the carriage home leading to the water is a lovely forest trail which includes a fireside retreat as well as ocean front dining. Enjoy your cocktails listening to the tide wash up on the rocks, or build a fire and grab your marshmallows to roast. Further enjoy a wonderful private dock where you can sunbathe, enjoy your morning coffee or put your boat into the water and go for a paddle. It's hard to decide where you want to be, inside or out, but this Maine carriage home awaits your company.
***** A three car garage on the first floor of the cottage is an owner's garage and is not accessible for renters use. If you desire to bring canoes or kayaks, they are safe and secure near the waters edge. If you wish to bring bicycles, they are safe within our private community and may be sheltered from in-climate weather under our front porch.

              Duck Duck Goose is located on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island, home to Acadia National Park. ANP is the only National Park in the Northeast and is known for its amazing vistas and captivating sunsets from mountain tops across the ocean. Hikers, bikers, paddlers, sailors, boaters, and nature lovers can never get enough of this magical island. If one seeks more than nature, the shops, antiquing, restaurants and lobsters will satisfy more than imagined.

              About: I am a mother of four and special education teacher in New York. One day I plan to retire at Duck, Duck...Goose. My family live on the island and I have been coming to the island since I was 15. All of my children were raised in Maine during their summers and spent their high school summers working at local restaurants and camps. I currently reside in New York during the school year and on MDI during each holiday and summer. I built this carriage house and decorated with all of my favorite things --and built it to last. This is not your typical rental, this is my home for you to enjoy and make wonderful family memories!

              Why Mount Desert:
              Duck Duck Goose is brand new, waiting to be enjoyed, waiting for memories to begin. The perfect balance between charming furnishings and modern conveniences where anyone would want to call home. Its a toss up as to which room you want to spend time in or being outside and embracing the woods, the water and the islands. Fall in love with nature, your significant others and get back to what is important.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              You can bring your canoes or kayaks and put them right into the water either from the private dock or just down in the front yard. You can jump on your bikes and disappear for hours enjoying the coastal streets, the national park and trails and Bass Harbor Light.
