Southwest Harbor cabin description
SUMMER 2013 Fully Booked - Please try us for Summer 2014
Acadia Cove Cabin is located in a secluded wooded setting just steps from the shoreline of Somes Sound, the only fjord on the eastern coast of the United States. Located on the border of Acadia National Park, and right across Somes Sound from famous Sargent's Drive, this two bedroom ocean-front cabin commands beautiful views of the sound, a quiet, well-protected cove, and Norumbega and Acadia Mountains. From your deck, watch sailboats and lobsterman at close range, launch your own kayak from the private cove, and enjoy the stunning combination of woods, water and granite ledges.
This rustic, waterfront cabin consists of a main room, which is a living/kitchen/dining area combined. There are two bedrooms (one with a double bed and the other with a queen bed), and one bathroom with shower. A sleeper sofa and small loft provide extra sleeping (maximum of 5 people allowed). Looking directly over the water, a deck wraps around three sides of the house.
The cabin is accessed via a private gravel road in Hall Quarry, near the villages of Southwest Harbor and Somesville on Mount Desert Island. You will live in a rustic setting, away from intrusions of any kind, yet minutes from the major attractions of Mount Desert Island: Echo Lake, Beech Cliffs, Flying Mountain, Acadia Mountain, Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Cadillac Mountain, and the Carriage Roads and Hiking Trails of Acadia National Park. Bring your canoe or kayak and wake up to the sounds of lapping water, and to the smell of spruce, cedar, pine, oak and maple trees.
Acadia Cove Cabin sits on shore property owned by the same family since the 1880s.

ReviewsWrite a review
Our stay at Acadia Cove Cabin was wonderful. It wasn't far from all the hikes and bike rides, vistas and attractions we wanted to see in Acadia National Park, so it was a great home base for us and our golden retriever. The cabin had everything we needed. It was a perfect getaway, and I'd recommend this cabin to anyone looking for waterfront property that is private, quiet, relaxing, and just plain beautiful.

Wonderful PlaceGuest comment entered by owner
Spellbinding. Magical. Captivating. All words I would use to describe Acadia Cove Cabin. We have been coming to MDI since 1991 and we have never stayed in such a wonderful place. The solitude and beauty each morning while we enjoyed our coffee down on the water was breathtaking.

Amazing ViewGuest comment entered by owner
We had such a fun time at Acadia Cove Cabin. The view outside the front window was just amazing. This was a nice and quiet place. We were able to see lots of wildlife that we had never seen so close before. There was so much stuff to do and we all wish that we could stay here longer.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Acadia Cove Cabin.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Acadia Cove Cabin. It was so very peaceful, serene, and beautiful there. It was an ideal central location for exploring all parts of Acadia and the island. We loved returning to the cabin after a full day of hiking and relaxing on the porch. The weather was very kind to us while we were there and we only had one day of rain and dense fog.

About the owner: Our family has had this property on Somes Sound since the 1880s, and we are distantly related to Cyrus Hall. Portions of Acadia Cove Cabin date back to about 1905 and housed families that worked in the quarries and on building carriage roads and drives that are part of Acadia National Park. Today, our family returns every summer to Hall Quarry, sharing the main house which is up the hill a bit from ACC. ACC has a fantastic location right on the shore and with easy access to all of MDI. We rent ACC as a source to help pay for the costs of maintaining the property and paying local taxes. We are academics and with limited resources so ACC is an important part of keeping the property in our family.
