Tremont cottage description
Paul's Cottage is the year-round home where my father-in-law spent his retirement years. Built to resemble a New England barn, the spacious pine-paneled living room features a cathedral ceiling and a granite fireplace that is likely the largest you have ever seen!
There is a bedroom with queen size bed and full bath on the first floor. Over the kitchen and bedroom is a loft area with a full bath and two bedrooms, one with a queensize bed, the other with a small twin and sitting area with skylight. You will absolutely love the new dormer in the upstairs bedroom especially when you are able to look out on to Blue Hill Bay and enjoy the stars and the moon traveling across the clear dark sky. (Due to the relatively small size of the loft bedrooms we limit the total number of guests to five, no exceptions, please.)
Our newly renovated kitchen is well equipped for cooking and serving, with amenities including gas cooktop & oven, microwave, coffeemaker, dishwasher and breakfast table.
Mealtime is always more enjoyable with a view of the water. You can sit in front of the window in the dining area or simply go outside to use the picnic table on the deck. In the corner of the living room next to a window with a waterfront view, the landlady insisted on having a game table because she loves to play scrabble, bridge or canasta. Yes, it is a great place to use your computer and we do offer wireless internet connection for those who insist on making contact with the outside world. However, we suggest that you just sit and relax in the large wicker chairs in the living room............relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. Perhaps the best thing to do after all is just step through the large sliding glass doors onto a 400 square foot deck and enjoy the panoramic view of Blue Hill Bay.
We are located between Mitchell and Duck Cove on the western side of Mount Desert Island, so you will find that the spectacular sunsets probably will take your breath away.
As one of my tenants said the minute he got out of the car, 'I think that you have a little bit of heaven here'. I do believe that he is correct. I have to say I do leave a little bit of my heart behind every time I leave Mount Desert Island.
So come and experience the peace and quiet of your home away from home and leave your cares behind.
l) We rent our cottages by the week, Saturday to Saturday
2) A deposit is required with 7 days to hold your reservation. Refund of deposits can only be made if we are successful in re-renting the entire period.
3) We enjoy pets enormously, but have found that pets are frequently unhappy in unfamiliar surroundings. We do have tenants who have allergies too. We regrettably have concluded that we can not accommodate any pets.
4) Our housekeeping cottage is now smoke-free. Smoking is not permitted inside at any time.
5) We do limit the number of people to five, including small children, no exceptions, please.

Paul's cottage is perfect for a romantic getaway. We have been coming for years and each time we leave , we want to come back. The upstairs bedroom is dreamy. The place has million dollar views .. Sunsets.. Breathtaking ! It's very private , cozy,.. A rustic cottage with all the updates you need. Great stove , kitchen is excellent and has everything. The Shields, Kathy and Ray are just lovely people ... Very accommodating. If your looking for a place to call home away from home... This is it.

I've used VRBO a lot, and Paul's Cabin is one of the nicest places I have rented. It has fantastic views looking southwest toward Blue Hill Bay (winter sunsets over the water), a large fire place, a well-equipped kitchen, good internet and access to the beautiful carriage roads of Acadia National Park. A great place to come home to after a day of snow showing. It was hard to leave.

We really enjoyed our time at Paul's Cottage. It was clean, well maintained and stocked. It was close to everything we wanted to do/see. The weather was beautiful and the views out the cottage windows were just wonderful!

We stayed at this cottage for one glorious week in October. Found it on the internet and it exceeded our expectation. Kathy is very personable and easy to work with. The cottage is very well maintained/clean and very well stocked. It is very comfortable and cozy. The proximity to sights and necessities is perfect. It is refreshing to go home to the "quiet side" of the island after a day of sightseeing/.hiking and to be close to that home. The pictures are a very good representation of what you get, we were fortunate to have sun everyday and a full moon by night. Highly recommended!

We had one of our most memorable family vacations here! The house was very comfortable and had a well stocked kitchen, games and books. We ate most of our meals on the deck overlooking the water - also a great place to enjoy a glass of wine and a book at the end of a day of hiking or exploring. One night was even cold enough to build a fire in the fireplace, which was fun for this Florida family on summer vacation. Our boys (age 12 and 9) just loved being able to explore - especially ambling down to the rocky coastline. The location was perfect for us - a short drive from Bar Harbor, but well removed from all the crowds. There are many hikes that are just minutes away by car. We also enjoyed spending time in Southwest Harbor. We would rent this home again and have already recommended it to friends and family. Our kids still describe it as the best summer vacation they have ever had.
