We are located minutes away from Acadia National Park, where hiking and biking are favorite activities of visitors. You will love vacationing here on the 'Quietside' of the Island - away from the hustle & bustle of Bar Harbor, yet in close proximity to excellent restaurants and all the activities of Mt. Desert Island. The Villages of Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor and Bar Harbor plus Acadia National Park's main entrance are a picturesque 10 to 25 minutes away by car.
Located near the end of a private drive on well sheltered Goose Cove, our secluded 21 acres of land also provides plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities. We have 1,000 feet of private shore frontage with beach, ledges, and tidal pools for hours of exploring. Kayaks may be rented locally and launched easily from our beach.
Although you may not want to leave beautiful Goose Cove, you'll want to venture out, as the site-seeing and recreational opportunities abound on Mount Desert Island. In Acadia National Park there are endless mountains and trails to hike or bike, museums to visit, whale or bird watching, first class shopping and dining to experience, and excellent fresh and salt water fishing. For the golfing enthusiasts, close by in Southwest Harbor is The Causeway Club, a fun and scenic 9 hole course. For a bigger golf challenge, you can play the famous 18-hole Kebo Valley Golf Club in Bar Harbor.
After a full day of island adventure, come back to a peaceful setting to prepare fresh seafood for dinner in our well equiped kitchen and enjoy a beautiful sunset while relaxing on our large deck overlooking Goose Cove and Blue Hill Bay.
