About the Property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2

Juniper Cottage shares with our home and Hawthorn Cottage two lovely acres in Somesville, a historic village at the heart of Acadia National Park. It is just a short walk to the library, repertory theater, church, museum, and convenience store. Both ocean and lake are within walking distance also. The view from our property is of Cadillac Mountain., across thoughtfully landscaped lawns and gardens. Juniper's screened porch and gas fireplace make it a charming home away in any season.

Car: Recommended

Somesville is virtually surrounded by Acadia National Park. The village itself is right on Somes Sound, the natural fjord that comes up to the center of the island. You can walk to the Somesville Landing from our property and sit by the ocean and watch the boats coming into the harbor as well as the abundant wildlife, including bald eagles and busy ospreys. We have an outstanding repertory theater in the village, and the island in general is alive all season with music, art, lobster festivals, Acadia National Park events, and endless fresh and saltwater activities: schooner excursions, whale watches, kayaking tours, canoe rentals, and miles of hiking trails.

Year Purchased: 1980

About: Ken is a retired art educator and I am a costume designer. We purchased this property from Chauncey and Ethel Somes in 1980 and continue their tradition (since 1960) of sharing this glorious island and our charming cottages with summer guests.

Why Somesville, Mount Desert, ME, USA:
Staying in Somesville means that Acadia National Park is surrounding you in all directions, and our cottages for two provide you with artful, well-appointed accommodations for peaceful, interesting vacations. We have lovely grounds, with walking paths through the historic cemetery, along the mill brook from Somes Pond, down to the ocean.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Perhaps the biggest plus is the central location of our village. The three larger towns of the island, Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, and Southwest Harbor are equidistant from here, making island exploration so much more convenient. And it is a short walk from our property to where you can pick up the free Island Explorer shuttles if you don't feel like driving.
