Property description

2 bedroom cottage (one with queen bed, one with two singles), fully equipped kitchen, portacrib and toddler's chair available, bath with shower, under eave seating in shade and picnic table in sun, direct access to Friends of Acadia trail, friendly dog allowed. Central to all aspects of Mt.Desert Island and Acadia National Park. Access to washer/dryer on premises. Very quiet and private location. We enjoyed living in this cottage for 3 years until we built a home on the property, 100 yards away and secluded from the cottage. Bar Harbor has it all: activities for kids and adults such as mountain climbing, boat rides, bicycling and hiking along the shore. An oceanarium, miniature golf, and a small waterpark are less than a twenty minute drive away.

The National Park Service organizes nature programs in the National Park for children and adults. Explore Bar Harbor's maritime setting, look for shells, sea glass, and starfish on MDI's ocean beaches. Swim in the crystal clear water of Echo Lake! Acadia Access Cottage is the perfect place to take advantage of all that Bar Harbor and MDI have to offer.

Mt. Desert Island offers natural beauty and outdoor activities of wonderful Acadia National Park. Enjoy walking and biking on spectacular carriage roads, many mountain hikes, public access to swimming and boating in lakes and ocean. Our location is a runner's delight with woods path on property and short distance to carriage roads. Our center island location gives access to all that is to be enjoyed on the island.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: After having lived for 28 years in Maine we realized that Mount Desert Island was the place we loved most to be. Prior to moving to China for 3 years we purchased this property of 38 acres in the heart of Mt.Desert Island with the intent to return to live in this beautiful location. We built an apartment above an existing garage (Acadia Access Cottage). When we returned 3 years ago we moved into the cottage and enjoyed living in it for 3 years. In the Fall of 2013, we completed a new home on the property, 100 yards away and quite secluded from the garage/cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Bar Harbor:
We love the access to carriage roads, Echo Lake, Somes Sound, mountain hiking, Bar Harbor, and walking on our own property with a brook, small waterfall and direct access to Acadia Ridge Trail. We have close access to all that the island has to offer and enjoy the tranquility that surrounds us every day.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Centrally located. Covered outdoor ping pong table for adults and supervised young adults with possibility of challenging owner.
