Northeast Harbor cottage 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 Victorian cottage is an old Bar Harbor style built in the late 1800's, and is reminiscent of a simpler time long ago...Warm touches of memorabilia and antiques and a nice large yard.
Enjoy the roomy, quiet back yard with picnic table, dining table and chairs. 2 grills for outdoor living. 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 very original. Casual is the best way to describe our cottage and a place to be totally carefree.
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 dog friendly home, however your pup must be up to date on vaccinations and use 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.
