This classic, Maine cedar shake home located in Hall Quarry, is centrally located in the heart of Mt. Desert Island. It features a fantastic view of Somes Sound and Sargent Mountain. The double sliding glass doors in the great room allow the feeling of bringing the outside in. Nestled in the pines, this setting offers the peace and quiet of being away from it all, yet it is just a half mile from Rt. 102. Relax and enjoy your natural surroundings, as you see the deer pass by or the sound of the birds on the Sound. As you enter the cottage, you will be impressed with the finely appointed upgrades made by the new owners. The first floor contains a master with a comfortable queen size bed, adjacent to a full bath, a second bedroom with two twin size beds, and a laundry. Climb the stairs to the loft bedroom with one twin bed that overlooks the cathedral ceiling and the great room. A step up from the loft, you will find a third private bedroom with two twin beds and half bath. The tastefully furnished great room provides adequate seating for guests to converse, read, watch a movie or to relax in front of the fire place, after a day on the trails. Outdoor living is max from Hyland Cottage, conveniently located across from swimming and kayaking on Echo Lake, or climbing the trails of Beech and Acadia Mountains, nearby. With Cadillac Mountain and the surrounding carriage trails just minutes away, you will have easy access to hiking, biking and experiencing the magnitude of Acadia. Enjoy fine dining in nearby Southwest Harbor and Bar Harbor, or delight in the experience of a casual lobster feast! Because words cannot describe the beauty that surrounds Hall Quarry, we urge you to come and experience Acadia National Park and its breathtaking sights, for yourself!
The tiny village of Somesville is close by with a church, library, it's famously photographed bridge and a One-Stop for last minute shopping. The larger village of Southwest Harbor is about 4 miles....moreless

About: The owners of Hyland Cottage have wanted to own a piece of Mount Desert Island for years. They searched for that 'special place' for years but the minute they saw Hyland, they new their search had ended. Lovingly, picking out each item that decorates or furnishes the house was a real treat. The care and craftsmanship of caring owners adds some of the best touches to this holiday retreat. You will feel the warmth their ownership as you walk through the doors.
Why Hall Quarry: The owners have vacationed on Mount Desert Island every year.
Drawn to the Quiet Side of the island, their paths couldn't help but lead to Hyland Cottage.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Sitting in the chairs on the deck as they were taking in the view, their eyes lit up with excitement at finally finding their dream vacation home!
