- Minimum Stay7 nights
1 bedroom, 1 loft, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 5
Our family cottage rents by the week, Sunday to Sunday.
Take our view of the Prospect Harbor Lighthouse with your morning coffee this summer, disturbed only by the fishing of eagles and ospreys. Walk for miles along the granite beaches of our neighboring nature preserve, pick blueberries, play on our sand beach, or explore some of the best tidal pools of Hancock County.
We have views of the mountains of Acadia National Park from the floor to peak windows on our front wall. We’re isolated down a mile long private drive, but just around the corner from the Schoodic Peninsula and an easy drive to Mt Desert Island, or take the ferry to Bar Harbor from nearby Winter Harbor.
The house sleeps five, with a queen downstairs and three singles in the loft. We have a single bathroom with a shower. The kitchen is equipped well enough to prepare the local lobsters, clams or mussels any way you like, or you can grill your daily catch on the deck. We’ve provided a gas fireplace, washer and dryer. You have to provide lemons, butter, bikes and kayaks.

Just what we wanted!!
Wonderful week in Maine! The cabin was great! We enjoyed beach combing every morning. The sights and sounds were amazing. Seals, bald eagles, harbor porpoises, loons, lobster boats...we enjoyed it all. Spent some time in Winter Harbor and Prospect Harbor. Had lunch in Corea...Took many photos of the harbor towns. Went to Bar Harbor for the morning. Couldn't wait to get back to the solitude!! Had a picnic on Schoodic Point. Ate our fill of lobster. Cabin was cozy...spent the evenings playing games and watching movies. Not for families with tiny ones. Small area before the rocky shore. Could be dangerous. Thanks for sharing your cottage with us!!
very clean, quiet beautiful ocean view,
A very nice clean ocean front cottage.
my wife and I along with my daughter and 2 grandkids stayed here for 5 nights and very much enjoyed the quiet and beautiful ocean views and the surrounding wildlife we saw.
we saw a pod of harbor porpoises one afternoon along with local sea birds and the pet red squirrel my daughter fed by hand.
they have a very nice deck that we spent a fair amount of time on, would of actually liked to of spent more time at the cottage relaxing but spent just about everyday on the road visiting relatives and spending time with my 98 year old grandmother who lives very close.
if we decide to go back to Maine in the near future we would consider has a great place to stay.
Martha was very friendly and helpful and everything she said about the place was true and there were no disappointments.
the kitchen was a nice plus for cooking the local lobsters and the extra room over a Hotel was much appreciated when we needed a little personal space from the long days traveling.
My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed our vacation here! It was hard to leave! As far as amenities, it had everything we needed including much needed peace and privacy (quite secluded). We had planned to go to an upscale restaurant for dinner at least one night but there was no need when we realized we had the most beautiful view from our deck (sunset included) and live lobster to cook from the local co-op. Almost every morning I climbed onto one of the big rocks on our rocky shoreline (with my coffee) to sit and soak in the beauty of the ocean, the breeze, the wildlife...The cottage is located within easy driving distance to the Schoodic Penninsula and Acadia. We hiked in the Petite Manan Wildlife Refuge. Went to the Nautica Pub on a rainy day to eat a good lunch and shoot some pool. Just driving around the small, quaint towns in this area was a treat. I guess the only thing I think I would have changed if I could was the size of the shower - pretty small. People of the area were friendly. The owner, Dave, was very helpful in answering questions before hand. Life is short, so making memories is important...Maybe it was the stress I needed to escape, the alone time needed with my husband (of 35 years), or simply seeing the beauty of God's creation - probably a combination of all three but this was a vacation memory I will always hold dear in my heart:) If it's serenity you want - this has it.
A beautiful setting which provided an excellent base for a week of photography trips to Acadia and many other nearby locations. The cottage is well maintained and has all the needed ammenities. The location provided a private and peaceful retreat with a wonderful deck and a rocky coast which was fun to explore. The local harbor towns had everything we needed - a 5&10, a grocery store, gas station, bakery, and several restaurants - all within 10 minutes.
Maine at its BEST!
We enjoyed an early fall week on the water in this wonderful home with bedroom (queen) and roomy three-bed (twins) loft. Large wrap-around deck. Art objects have been crafted from items found on the beach. Large, fully stocked kitchen made meal prep easy and fun. Full laundry facility was very handy for light-packing travelers. Updated and very clean. Ramp entry makes first level handicap friendly. One large bathroom with stall shower. Local activities not to be missed include nearby Acadia National Park, Winter Harbor Five and Dime with sea glass and pastry shops on the same street, buying lobsters from the Corea Lobster Co-op, and the U.S. Bells Foundry. Watch for roadside signs to these places. Walking on the rocky shore filled many hours. Room for everyone's activities. Take your own DVD's for the flat screen TV. We have booked another week for next year. Highly recommended by discriminating world travelers who love all things Maine.
Other Activities: kayaking, canoeing
