Water’s Edge Cottage is a beautiful, tranquil oceanfront spot overlooking Mount Desert Island, with 200 ft of private beach shared with sister cottage Sunrise Cove 100 ft away (rent both for a larger group). Beach is sand/gravel/small rock, and water is accessible at all tide levels for swimming and kayaking. Just minutes from Acadia, Bar Harbor, and Ellsworth, but off the main route of traffic, at the very end of a quiet drive. Lobster pounds, groceries, gas, the bridge to Mount Desert Island, and other amenities only 2-3 miles away. Spectacular sunrises over the ocean, sunsets reflected off the mountains in the evening, and stargazing at night with a clear view of the Milky Way. A one-mile kayak trip to Mount Desert Island! Sunlight floods the house by day, but the views are stunning even on rainy, cozy days. Fantastic autumn leaf-peeping. Furnished for feet-on-the-furniture comfort after a day of hiking in Acadia. Single-story open living space with panoramic ocean views. Pack your clothes, stop for some quick groceries in Ellsworth, and let us provide the rest! Want to unplug? Easy! Can’t unplug? No problem – office supplies, wifi, cable TV included.
