Property description

Charming cottage in the heart of quiet Otter Creek -- the only village on Mt. Desert Island completely surrounded by Acadia National Park. On secluded Grover Ave. with the Park across the road, there is no better location for everything that the Island and Park have to offer.

Bustling Bar Harbor: 4 miles. Scenic Seal Harbor: 3 miles. Short walk to the Otter Creek general store, the 5-star Burning Tree Restaurant and a stop for the free Island Explorer shuttle that circles the Island. The head of Otter Cove (with public ramp) is a stroll down Grover Ave. A ten minute hike from our front door through the Park takes you to where Otter Cove meets the ocean at the Park Loop Road causeway (8th photo looks back toward where the cottage is located). Continue from there to Gorham Mtn., Otter Cliffs and Thunder Hole. Easy drives are the Jordan Pond House, Little Hunter's Beach, Day Mountain, Asticou Garden, Thuya Lodge, Sand Beach, Sieur de Monts, many mountain hikes, swimmable lakes and the natural wealth of Acadia and Mt. Desert.

But return to the peaceful haven of our cottage to relax on the screened porch (beautiful morning sun), cook in the fully-equipped kitchen (we like it better than our kitchen in Maryland), enjoy the fire pit at the back of our property and listen to nature.
The house has two bedrooms: one with a queen sized bed, one with a full sized futon. There is a comfortable living/dining room, kitchen, porch, one bathroom, a room at the end of the house that is perfect for writing or art making, a utility room and a garage for storing bikes or kayaks (no cars). There is a two-car driveway and a cute front yard full of flowers.
Please bring your own towels and sheets. We supply blankets, pillows and dish towels. For more photos please email and we'll send a link to our personal Maine web page.
