Franklin cabin description

Visiting Acadia National Park and Downeast Maine puts you in the middle of a widely diverse culture which, when combined with the unique features of our private getaway, permits a once in a lifetime opportunity. For instance, start your day with a vigorous hike through the woods of our eco-diverse forest (first growth pine to later growth hardwoods) then cool off with a swim in the quarry. After a quick lunch, board your Bar Harbor based whale watching vessel. Have a nice meal at a local restaurant and enjoy the evening with live entertainment--choose improv comedy, repertory theater or live music. And don't miss horse-drawn carriage rides in Acadia Park; singing old sea chanties while sailing a four masted schooner; touring Mount Dessert Island on one of Ollie's Trolleys; climbing a mountain; cycling Acadia's trails; kayaking one of the many local 'ponds.' Or relax on our wharf while watching an eagle hunt dinner then enjoy your own fresh caught lobster cooked in the cabin's pot

              Car: Necessary

              Get really away from the hustle, bustle and traffic of Acadia, America's most visited National Park by relaxing in this comfortably charming, bright 'in the woods' cottage on beautiful Taunton Bay. Situated on a 36 acre peninsula, you'll be surrounded by water whenever you go just a few steps East, South or West. Explore trails that wind through the property or sit and relax on the great stone wharf where ocean going sailing ships used to pick up locally quarried granite for delivery to Boston, New York or Washington D.C. Swim in our fresh water quarries or off the wharf in the salt water bay. Launch your kayak or canoe from our ramp. Visit the seals or bird watch everything from chickadees to eagles. Visit Acadia National Park and watch the sun rise from the top of Cadillac Mountain, the first place in the U.S. the sun hits every morning, or savor a freshly made popover on the lawn of the Jordan Pond House. After a day of sightseeing, relax with a good book on the front porch.
