Property description

Welcome to the enchanting Mount Desert Island (MDI) which is best known for the majestic Acadia National Park and the crashing rocky lined ocean. Many Acadia National Park trails are within easy walking distance from the cottage! You can bike or drive to additional trails which dot the entire Mount Desert Island.
Come experience the freshest clams, lobsters and mussels you will ever find!

This original Victorian cottage is an old Bar Harbor style, built in the late 1800's, and is reminiscent of a simpler time long ago...Touches of memorabilia, roomy furniture and a large yard.
Enjoy the quiet back yard with picnic table, dining table and chairs. 2 grills. Walk to Somes Sound, (The only fjord in the continental U.S.) the bustling harbor (with magnificent sailboats, lobster boats, and more). Visit the beautiful Thuya and Asticou Gardens, and walk along Sargent Drive, which has one of the most beautiful views of 'where the ocean meets the mountains' you will ever experience.
L.L. Bean offers a complimentary 'Green' propane bus and they will take you all over Mount Desert Island, Ellsworth and even up to Schoodic Point, which is also part of Acadia National Park, and be sure to visit. This is a great way to get all around the Island and surrounding towns without using your car! (Bus has bike rack)
Kick back from a long day of hiking and relax in this 'casual' cottage. This cottage is a very relaxed, comfortable place to kick off your deck shoes and put your feet up while sipping an afternoon iced tea or cocktail on the sunny front porch or inside living area. The cottage has few updates and is almost all original. 'Casual' is the best way to describe our cottage and is a place to be totally carefree. The kitchen has a 1920's feel with the old cast iron sink, light fixtures, cupboards and workspaces.
(We not offer a dishwasher)
If you are looking for a very laid back, relaxed atmosphere, then this is your place.
Enjoy the couple of minute walk to town and stroll around and enjoy our most unique shops, galleries and friendly people. Several street fairs occur each summer.
We have a wonderful new library with many summer events, which you are welcome to enjoy. There are many local activities throughout the summer and fall for you to enjoy.
This is a pet friendly home, however your pup must be up to date on vaccinations and be on monthly flea/tick prevention.
There is a leash law in Maine. Cleaning up after your pup is expected both on the property and when walking in the Park and in all towns.

Owner info

About the owner: This has been in our family since 1887, when the cottage was built. I spent summers here with my grandmother until I was married. I had an Antiques business in town for 22 years and you can't find a better place to vacation!

Why the Owner Chose Northeast Harbor:
It is a wonderful neighborhood location and is just a few minute walk to the water, Sound and active Harbor. Walk along the sound, into town and you will be at the beautiful town harbor which has boats to the Cranberry Isles, Nature Tours and Lighthouse Tours. Best of all, it is my family home!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Because this is an old family home it has a warm, lived-in feel and very comfortable. It is so convenient to walk for only a couple of minutes and be on the water with your pup, friends or by yourself gazing at the magnificent Somes Sound 'or' the Harbor, which both have an amazing history. Walk to the charming village and enjoy the history, shops, famous and not so famous folks who visit our town each summer. It is truly a people watching place to enjoy! Sit on the cozy front porch with your afternoon cocktail and let the sun warm your face while the nearby cool ocean breezes pass by. Enjoy your meals in the roomy backyard and fire up the BBQ grill.
