Car: Recommended

Crane Road Cottage is located within walking distance of Acadia, Flying & St. Sauveur Mountains & Echo Lake and within 15-20 minutes of Acadia National Park Visitors Center & Bar Harbor, a feature attraction with many quaint shops and restaurants. The cottage is 5-8 minutes from the working fishing village of Southwest Harbor with its fine restaurants and shops. Visitors can choose to hike, bike on designated trails and on park carriage roads. The free Island Explorer Bus will take you to any area of the island you would like to discover. Guests can fish, lobster, sail and kayak. Vacationers will want more time to visit all that the island has to offer. That's why people return year after year.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: When we purchased Crane Road Cottage, it had been a rental home for a few years. We gladly continued opening our home to guests from all over the world in order to share all that Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park have to offer. As of 2015, we have made the island our permanent home and continue to welcome visitors and share the fortunate experience of living in a place of awesome beauty and natural wonders.

Why the Owner Chose Hall Quarry, Mount Desert, ME, USA:
We also began coming to MDI as vacatoners and after a few years of return visits, we knew this was where we wanted to call home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
After searching several properties on the island, we found the cottage. It is tranquil here even though we are just minutes away from all the action and activities the island offers. The beautiful, natural granite ledges and the spring filled quarry are stunning and the location is exclusive due to its setting on a private road.
