About the Property

Comfortable home for up to 8 people, just 20 minutes from Acadia National Park

Tucked away off the main road, Heather Cove Cottage, built less than 10 years ago, offers a relaxing setting for your vacation with 4 bedrooms (2 on 1st floor), 3 full baths, large, well-stocked kitchen in an open floor plan for dining and relaxing. We are the new owners, and are in progress of refreshing the decor, adding new beds, TV's, etc, and new photos will be posted in the coming weeks. This wonderful home has an awesome beachy shorefront with to-die for views of the bay and Blue Hill. Please see our other 2 homes nearby (980807 & 3830794) for style and guest reviews.

At Heather Cove Cottage you can take in the incredible, unobstructed views and enjoy strolling to the flat 'beach' - no steps - and the beach is more sandy than rocky (note water temp gets to only 62F in summer). A small stream also runs along side the property too - so lots of places for the kids to explore. The sunsets are stunning! No pets.

The cottage sleeps 8 people comfortably - even for 2 small families. Four bedrooms (2 on each floor) with new mattresses & bedding: 1st floor Master Bedroom has stunning direct view to the water, Queen-sized bed, walk-in closet, full bath with claw-foot soaking tub/shower. Second bedroom on 1st floor features 2 comfortable TwinXL beds - perfect for kids or adults. There is a full hallway bath with laundry & stand-up shower.

Upstairs bedrooms have a similar set-up, with 1 Queen-size bed in the back bedroom with side view of water. Also on 2nd floor is front bedroom with closet and also features 2 TwinXL beds. Hallway bath includes Tub/Shower combo.

Enter to large foyer and open floor plan for dining and relaxing: Kitchen has stainless appliances and is well-stocked with all the accessories you'll want to have including new stainless pots/pans, sharp knives, roasting pan, lobster & clam pots, corkscrew, etc. Gas-stove, oven, microwave. Lots of counter space and center island with 2 stools. Full sets of dishes, cutlery, glassware, even a martini kit! You'll also have all the basic spices on hand.

The Dining area has table and chairs to comfortably seat 6, with access to the Deck, with Grill and outdoor dining. (The kitchen island seats additional 2).

In the Living area, you'll find new couches, smart TV to stream your favorite shows from Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, etc. Or watch a movie on the Blu-ray/DVD player from many of the titles on hand. Fast WiFi throughout the home.

Upstairs in the large landing area, the kids can hangout to play games, watch TV or read. Comfy seating and plenty of books and games to choose.

Also outside find a stone fire pit and chairs for night-time relaxation below the millions of stars!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2017

About the owner: We have been coming up to Maine for about 10 years and are just in love with the beauty of Acadia and rugged coast, and hope to retire here someday. Scott is a professional consultant in the craft beer industry, and nationally award-winning brewer. Daria works in the technology industry in business-to-business marketing and enjoys taking photographs of Acadia. We love to travel, and are so happy to be able to share this awesome area with guests from around the country and even the world.

Why the Owner Chose Trenton, ME, USA:
Heather Cove Cottage has a unique, flat, unobstructed view of the water and Blue Hill across the bay - it is simply stunning. The sandy beach is unusual in this part of Maine and so nice to be able to walk to the shoreline with no steps. Of course, the sunsets and moon-rises are just awesome too!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
At low tide, the expansive shoreline gives way to incredible views.
