Trenton cottage description

This beautiful, family owned, oceanfront property boasts 400ft of private ocean frontage and is situated on 3 wooded acres. Dayton Point Cottage was purchased by my grandparents (the Daytons) in 1958 when they began summering here from Cheshire, Connecticut. . Though smaller than a house, it has all the comforts and charm of a home. It sits on its own little peninsula along one side of a cove on Western Bay, overlooking the mountains of Acadia National Park.
We recently updated the cottage with all new windows (each with an amazing ocean view), and a new bathroom (2011).
Though the cottage can sleep 6, we limit our guest capacity to 4. We are very protective of our special cottage!


The cottage sits (literally) 25 feet from the high tide mark. One can watch the tide come and go with its ever changing color and wildlife. The cove is home to many loons, osprey, eagles, seals, and porpoise. At low tide, the careful observer can see crabs, anemones, sea stars, hermit crabs, and an array of other tide pool dwellers.

Kayaks can be launched right at the beach which is down a well kept (mowed) sloping path from the cottage. Bring your own, or local rentals will deliver right to the cottage.

We are only able to offer a few available weeks per year as most are reserved for those who return to Dayton Point annually. We invite those of you have not yet been to be our guests!

            This is oceanfront property with a private beach. The cottage sits about 20 feet from the high tide mark. Because the cottage sits on a point with 400 feet of private frontage, it has a 270 degree view of Western Bay, Mount Desert Island, and the mountains of Acadia National Park. ...moreless

            This is a rural area away from any highways or busy roads. The private driveway is 2 10ths of a mile long, so you cannot hear any traffic1 :) Just ocean waves, birds, and other wildlife....moreless

              This cottage is in close proximity to Acadia National Park, however, the property itself is like a park. There are many guide books at the cottage to help you select the activities that suit you best.
