Property description

Whether with family or friends, escape to 'The Acadia'. A true gem for nature lovers, this vacation rental is tucked in between the shores of Somes Sound and Acadia Mountain. Perched about 1/4 mile above the shore, this cottage affords beautiful views of Somes Sound and the mountains of Acadia National Park. Plus, you can stroll through the gorgeous landscape of this unique property, down the 1/4 path to the shore and dock, right on Somes Sound. Mountain laurel, pines, a babbling brook, granite outcroppings, deer, fox, chickadees, and more...all at your doorstep!


Designed for Enjoying and Relaxing: The main living area is drenched in sunlight, and includes an open floor plan with kitchen, living and dining area on the top floor to capitalize on the gorgeous views of Somes Sound, Acadia Mountain and the surrounding natural landscape. Convenience abounds with direct access from the kitchen to the huge balcony with outdoor seating and gas grill.

Also perched on the upper balcony is a hot tub, a perfect spot for enjoying the spectacular views of Somes Sound and Acadia Mountain, watching the visiting deer or for soothing tired muscles after a picture-perfect day of hiking, biking, shopping, swimming or sightseeing! Gather around the fire pit and enjoy roasting marshmallows or a cocktail. Firewood provided!

Sleeping quarters and bathroom are downstairs and include 2 bedrooms, one with queen bed and twin bed, and the other with a double bed. Another private balcony off this level affords beautiful views of Acadia Mountain and the surrounding natural landscape.

Plan your coastal Maine vacation to be as quiet and relaxing or as active and full of adventure as you like. Enjoy all that the area has to offer, from hiking and biking to whale watching and sightseeing; or settle in and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this private setting, enjoying nature while soaking up the sun, the stars, the view and fresh Maine air.

Wildlife abound at this unique vacation rental, nestled between and with gorgeous views of Somes Sound and Acadia Mountain. Close to Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, and within a mile of Acadia National Park, including the trail head to Acadia Mountain and crystal clear, spring fed, park owned Echo Lake.
