Prospect Harbor cottage description

Nestled in the woods and exceptionally close to the shoreline, this unique cottage is a perfect vantage point to experience the rugged beauty of Maine.

Fully furnished, the living and dining rooms look out to the ocean view and are anchored by a large fireplace. Exposed wooden trusses provide a lofty feel. A stairway leads to the upper level loft space which sleeps up to 6 and overlooks the living space. A private bedroom with queen size bed is on the main level as well as a full bath and fully equipped kitchen. Internet, WiFi and TV with cable access is onsite. Bed linens and towels are provided.

The large, secluded deck is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sights, smells, and sounds of the coast. From here plan excursions to nearby Schoodic Point, part of Acadia National Park, where hiking, biking, and sightseeing opportunities abound. Catch a scenic boat ride to Bar Harbor from nearby Winter Harbor or browse galleries and shops.
Complete your stay with a lobster dinner from the local co-op.
