About the Property

2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, sleeps 6.

Spruce Shore Cottage sits on a secluded bluff overlooking Goose Cove, on the western side of Mt. Desert Island, minutes from Acadia National Park. The cottage includes everything you need to be comfortable. West Tremont is 6 miles from Southwest Harbor, a town with excellent shopping and several fine restaurants in every price range.

PETS: Dogs are welcome if they are flea-treated. We ask that dogs never be left tied up outside, and that you poop-scoop as necessary. There is a $50.00 extra charge (per week) for dog guests. The property is dog friendly. If you have furniture sitters, please bring a throw.
