  • A peaceful paradise

    "The cottage and the surrounding property were just wonderful. The interior of the cottage was rustic and unfinished. This added to the overall character of the place. The furniture was in good shape and the sofa was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped for just about anything you can dream up for a meal. The cabinets hold a lot of goodies. Some of which we didn't discover until later in the stay. But that was probably because we didn't look thoroughly enough. We had a few meals on the table out on the deck to enjoy the view and to take advantage of the phenomenal weather. Words cannot fully describe the beauty of a Maine sunrise. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return someday soon. Ed with SeaScape Kayaks was a great tour guide. I highly recommend them for a great tour of the neighboring islands. We bought lobster from the Winter Harbor Coop and cooked them at the cottage. They were delicious. This place is so quiet. The only sounds are the gentle lapping of the waves, the occasional lobster boat, loons, eagles, etc. Thanks for a great week."

  • Winter Harbor Get a Way

    "Clean, well supplied, though not what we would call a cottage. Furnishings are a bit formal. Not a place for the young folk to run wild. Bathroom small, but the washer and dryer were great. Though we were not expecting a grill, we were happy to find a small Weber which we used 2 nights! We would recommend additional outdoor seating(currently 2 chairs), though the mosquitos will drive you in. Location relative to Winter Harbor, Schoodic Pennisula and Grindstone Neck was perfect! We biked and kayaked and ate a very affordable yummy meal at the Pickled Wrinkle. Bought lobsters at Corea Lobsterman's Coop...right off the boat! Looking for Maine not over run with tourists? Head to Winter Harbor."

  • Peace and paradise

    "Nous avons passé une semaine fantastique. Ce cottage est absolument parfait. Le lieu, la décoration, les activités et le design du bâtiment... Tout est très bien agencé. Le parc Acadia est juste à côté et la petite ville de Ellsworth est très sympathique avec de petits magasins. Cet endroit et ce cottage sont à recommandé. We had a fantastic week. This cottage is absolutely perfect. The location, decor, activities and the building design... Everything is very well arrange. Acadia park is right around the corner and the small town of Ellsworth is very nice with a lot of boutique / small stores. This place and this cottage must be recommended."

Great Duck Island Travel Tips

Great Duck Island Vacation Rentals: See the Birds

Great Duck Island is owned by the Nature Conservancy and is run as a bird sanctuary. If your family enjoys watching and feeding birds, then Great Duck Island vacation rentals are a great place to stay on your family vacation. The Nature Conservancy and Audubon Society offer bird watching tours which are a great way to learn about different bird species. Plan your next vacation to Great Duck Island to see the birds.

Acadia Cottages Are Close to the Fun

If you want to visit Great Duck Island on your vacation, you will need to find a vacation rental near the island. There are Acadia cottages that put your family near enough to the island for a day excursion to the unique bird sanctuary. These Acadia cottages give your family access to a wide range of activities. Many of the cottages can be found close to Acadia National Park where you can go hiking and explore nature, as well as close to a lot of water activities like waterskiing, fishing, and sailing. There is very limited Great Duck Island lodging because the island is so small. You will need to book your vacation property well in advance to enjoy on location lodging.

Great Duck Island Lodging Offers Complete Privacy

Great Duck Island vacation rentals are a great place to take your family because there is so much land and shore to explore, yet the Island offers a relaxed retreat, free from worries. When visiting Great Duck Island, you will be able to see the famous lighthouse that was built in 1890. Although the lighthouse is not open to the public, it is still a historical site that is worth a visit. The island is so beautiful, with ocean views, green landscapes, and uncountable bird sightings, that it is a dream destination for photography lovers. Grab your camera and head to Great Duck Island.
