About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Lovely house on beautiful shorefront property on Western side of MDI. This 5 acre property has gently sloping fields to a wonderful cobblestone beach with private deep water granite pier and dock. The first floor has a kitchen, bathroom, dining room living room, office and reading parlor. The upstairs has 3 bedrooms. The master has a double futon and the 2 smaller bedrooms have each have 2 twin beds. A new kitchen has just been installed.

The beach is perfect for private lobster bakes, shelling and searching for sea glass or simply enjoying the incredible sunsets. The 150' pier with 24' floating dock will accommodate your boating activities along with a mooring suitable for a 50' vessel. The area is ideally suited for kayaking and sailing in the protected reaches of Blue Hill Bay.

The Southwestern exposure provides incredible views towards Swans Island and the outer reaches of Blue Hill Bay.

The villages of Bass Harbor and Bernard are approximately 1 mile away. There's great hiking along the shore or in the nearby National Park. An easy walk to the nearby bus stop provides free bus service throughout the island. The location is truly amazing and must be seen to be appreciated.

Waterfront House on Mount Desert Island

We love this place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed staying in this authentic captain's cottage. It was very clean, comfortable, perfectly stocked, yet nicely uncluttered. The photos do not capture the immensity of the 5-acre lawn. My spaniel got his daily exercise playing fetch and retrieve on it. There are 2 other small rental cabins on the lot, but you're not really aware of them much thanks to the smart landscaping. We also liked staying away from the madding crowds of the east side, while being within comfortable driving distance to all the great Mt Desert destinations. From the dock, we saw a seal, a dolphin, a spectacular sunset, and stars at night. On a clear day, we could look out the dining room window across Blue Hill Bay all the way to Swan's Island. On one rainy night, the wood-fire stove in the living room kept us cozy. We had such a marvelous time here that we've already booked a reservation for next year.

This house was perfect for us. Lovely location with a large grassy yard leading to a peaceful beach where we sat, swam, wandered on the rocks, and enjoyed nighttime fires. The lovely cape is situated in a nice, peaceful neighborhood with a short drive to town, great restaurants, hiking and swimming in Acadia National park. The house was so clean when we arrived and had everything we needed. The owner was extremely helpful and nice, we are looking forward to vacationing here again.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the house in Maine. It was extremely clean when we got in. There was plenty of room for all of us plus the two dogs. The backyard was huge and the view of the ocean was wonderful. The one thing was the stairs to the bedroom. they are very steep and with a 3 year old it made me nervous. But other than that we have a wonderful time and are already thinking about booking the same house for 2013.
