Somesville is centrally located on Mount Desert Island with neighboring towns being an equal distance away - about 10-15 minutes from Ripples Cottage. Acadia National Park encompasses much of the Island and is the home to vacationers from all over the world. Ripples Cottage is close to Acadia's network of carriage roads and nearby lakes and ocean. One can walk from Ripples Cottage to Long Pond, which offers swimming, fishing, canoe & kayak rentals. If a hike is in the daily agenda Beech Mtn. is just 2 miles from the cottage. The Island Explorer free bus system can be picked up just 1 1/2 miles away. This pristine location is perfect for those who are looking for a quiet area that is centrally located to beaches, mountains, restaurants, museums and theaters.
Other Activities: kayaking and canoeing
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: I moved to Maine 22 years ago, thinking it may be a temporary stay. I never left. Nature is one of the most important things to me and Acadia offers more than I can possibly keep up with in my spare time. In the middle of summer I still am able to hike without seeing another soul, go for a bike ride any time of day, kayak in any number of lakes or coves, and swim at the end of a long day. As a landscape designer I see the beauty of nature and capture that in my work. And for those days when I just want to get away, I find solace in the fact that I can walk out my back door and step into Acadia National Park.
Why the Owner Chose Mount Desert, ME, USA:
My office was located on Mount Desert Island for nearly 9 years. The structure that housed it was previously a seasonal rental and it begged to become 'one' again. I completely renovated the interior a few years ago, I moved my office to a neighboring town, and Ripples Cottage was reborn. Since then each off season I do more improvements to make your stay more enjoyable each summer.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Ripples Cottage is located on a quiet side street with little traffic. One of the things my family and I love about staying there is the solitude of the space. Being set back from the road even when cars do pass by, we feel protected. We also love the meadow behind the house and woods edge that forms the perimeter of the property. It is a true home away from home feeling for us when we have the luxury of staying in our own rental.
