Cherry Dip Cottage – a new multi-level cottage style vacation home. On a tidal cove of the West Bay on the Schoodic Peninsula. Our home offers all the warmth and charm of a Down East Maine seaside home. Leather couches and chairs in the main living room area and a flat screen TV. Bring your Kayaks as we have a staircase directly down to the water. Cherry Dip Cottage is pet friendly woopee!

We rent Saturday-Saturday, 7 nights from June 14-November 1. We rent 3 nights from May 23-June 13.

We sold out all 17 weeks in 2013 so book now for 2014.

We have top of the line Bosch appliances for cooking for all you foodies. Bring your laptops and iPads as we have high speed Internet access and WiFi. The warm wood finishes and stone throughout the home generate a soft relaxing sensation. Watch eagles and abundant wildlife from the large windows that surround the front of the home. For the nature lover, walk among the tall pine and fir trees that surround our 2 acre lot.

The Cherry Dip Cottage is 12 minutes to the Schoodic section of Acadia National Park and 15 minutes to downtown Winter Harbor and the Grindstone Neck golf course.

We had a great time – the house was well equipped, comfortable and clean. The area is so quiet and relaxing. It was a truly restful vacation experience. We saw eagles and seals while kayaking in West Harbor. We really enjoyed biking and hiking the Schoodic Peninsula.

We had a nice week at this house.

We had a nice week at this new house overlooking Gouldsboro Bay (I think). Nice easy kayak launch down the hill from the house. Lots of nearby hiking and sights. Schoodic point (part of Acadia) is nearby, but the bigger park on My Dessert is about 1 hour south. There is a nice private beach in nearby Corea. Be aware that the stairs in the house are steep and creaky. Aside from that, great house. BONUS that it's the only house visible from the street. Very private.

Our stay in Matt and Nicole's cottage was fantastic.

Our stay in Matt and Nicole's cottage was fantastic. It's a gorgeous piece of property with a very secluded feel. It doesn't have the vast ocean views but was still extremely peaceful. The house was beautiful, cozy, and very well stocked. You really feel like it's your vacation home and not some bare-bones rental. We really only had to buy perishable food— even the pantry was fully stocked. They did a great job making us feel at home with notes on how to use everything in the home and where the best local places are. It's a little bit of a drive to Acadia and Bar Harbor but it was nice to be away from the tourist scene and Ellsworth is close enough to make trips to get food and supplies. We would definitely stay again and recommend this to anyone who's interested in a nice getaway.

Beautiful home

We loved staying in this home. It was away from everything, yet close enough to be in Acadia within minutes. After driving through Bar Harbor, we were happy to be away from crowds. Each morning we had breakfast outside, facing the water. Each night the bullfrogs sang us to sleep. The only people we saw all week were paddling by.The kids loved swinging in the hammock and exploring the property. The house was well stocked with everything and was spotless. We have stayed in rental houses throughout the country and none have been as well stocked as this one. We loved the wall of windows in the living room and seeing the moon reflecting over the water. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone who wants seclusion and who would like to enjoy nature. It is a beautiful, comfortable home.

Truly the way life should be

My husband and myself along with our two four legged babies really enjoyed our week here. The cottage is everything described and then some. It was so comfortable, we didn't feel a need to go anywhere! Beautiful spot, secluded. Bald eagles in the cove viewed from the windows. The dogs had a blast as well. Thank you for the shopping tips. We've always gone into Ellsworth, never realized Milbridge was so much closer. Guidebook came in handy for that and we got the last bit of clams before state shut down for fresh water runoff due to the rain. We love this part of Maine and would definately rent here again.

Beautiful, Comfortable Isolation

Guest: Marybeth (Boston, MA)
Date of Stay: 07/07/12 Review Submitted: 07/19/12

Your vacation home is wonderful. It is thoughtfully designed (the living room feels like a tree house!) and very well-stocked (even doggy towels) making for a relaxing vacation. The isolation is so peaceful especially from the hammock by the water. We went to Schoodic most days, especially after the one time we ventured into the main park. Schoodic was never crowded, easy to bike, and the views were dramatic. Your home allowed us to have the laid-back vacation of our dreams in absolute comfort. Thank you!
