West Tremont house description

Before you choose a vacation spot in coastal Maine, you need to decide what you want. If being on the ocean is your main priority than Lyford Cottage is the place. This rustic summer home is filled with the memories of happy vacationers from days gone by. The interior set-up is for a close knit group and offers great sleeping and relaxing spots. A queen sized bedroom and full bath is part of the 1st floor along with a kitchen, dining room with a view and a living room with a fireplace. The second level is an loft area with 3 sections, 1 containing a double bed and the other 2 have a total of 4 twin beds. You can even look down to the living room from this level. The peacefulness and simplicity of Lyford Cottage will bring you back year after year!


Rocky Shore: Lyford Cottage sits right above the rocky shore facing Blue Hill Bay. There is a path down to the rocks and many places to explore at low tide. The large tide pool in the middle of the rocks used to be made into a miniature harbor with boats and fish shacks, by one of the owners children years ago. It was something to see. Now, there will still be warmer salty water to dangle your feet in. A daily swim was part of the families activities but the fantastic view maybe enough for most vacationers.

Art: The living room was added as an art studio as painting was of great interest to the Lyford family. Though trees have grown up there is still a lovely, soft lighting at certain times of the day.

Family and Friends: The Lyford Cottage was always filled with family and family friends. There warmth,love and hospitality can still be felt when you walk in the door.

                    This is the real deal. Lots of windows overlooking the ocean, very private, and so much antique character! The deck on the back of this house may be one of the greatest spots we've ever had the opportunity to enjoy. The location is beyond beautiful. Only one thing: try to stay to one side going down the driveway if you're in a car or a minivan or you will scrape the bottom of your car. Once you're there for a day or so, you get the hang of it. But seriously, for anyone who wants to enjoy Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, but have somewhere to escape at the end of the day, this is it. You'll enjoy this house so much you probably won't mind just hanging out there for a day. This was our honeymoon spot and it was simply perfect. We'll certainly be returning!

                    Manager response: We are so glad to have your visit to Lyford Cottage be a part of your honeymoon memories! It is a romantic spot ~ a wonderful place to begin your life together! Please come again and celebrate your anniversary ~

                    My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week at the end of August and absolutely fell in love with this cottage. The best part about it is the location -- directly on the ocean and on the quiet side of MDI. You can enjoy the stunning views from the deck and listen to the ocean (and the loons) right through your bedroom window. The cottage itself is rustic, charming, and full of history with old books and paintings. Lots of windows and light, very cozy, clean and comfortable. We hope to be back very soon! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

                    Manager response: We are always so happy to hear that our renters enjoyed the cottage as much as we do. It was the home of 2 artists and the paintings are mostly originals. The combination of the fantastic views and wonderful interior lighting make even novices want to paint ~ Please come visit Lyford Cottage, again!

                  About: Here is a poem written by the owner of Lyford Cottage describing her time at the cottage ~ Safe Haven A place beyond the rounded, blue-grey stones where boats can rest and oars dry out; where terns and cormorants dive into a calmer sea past the heavy tides where lobster boats putt-putt across the bay checking their pots and moving on. Ducks ignore them swimming in a row, diving now and then heads disappear and reappear. Loons let out a hoot, not quite a laugh, more like an harrumph. The back bay moves more slowly with the sea’s ebb and flow, than at the sea wall where waves crash and spill over. The noon sun hits the water in sharp, sparkled points as though each light dances on the edge of a ripple and the whole bay becomes a sea of illuminated visitors from another place. A sailboat glides past the cove heading for an island so small only nesting sea birds stop by to visit a tired pine unanchored in the sandy soil. Although small, the island adds depth to the scene of Blue Hill Bay across Duck Cove, beyond far off pines, rooted more securely, like a deep blue-green fringe of tree tops, even in a foggy mist, crying out from afar, .by Jean Lyford
