About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms 1Bath-Sleeps 5/ Studio-1room,1bath additional $175 nighly

'Windiana' is a waterfront property nestled between towering white pine trees in one of the prime spots on Long Pond facing its bordering mountains, Beech, Mansel, and Bernard. It is on a less populated part of the pond with untouched Acadia National Park land directly across. Long Pond is the largest lake on Mt. Desert stretching four miles. It will take you a week to see all the gems on Long Pond! Canoe to Duck Rock for a picnic. Duck Rock is a magnificent sheet of rock that cuts gradually into the lake. Perfect for swimming with all ages. You can even pick up an Acadia National Park trial up the Perpendicular on Mansel Mountain. Picnic to Rum Island and explore this beautifully situated island looking down the lake. Snorkel and find the boulders the size of rocks off its shores. It is a crystal clear fresh water lake. It is perfect for swimming, boating, and bass fishing. Kayaks, paddle boards and canoes can be delivered to your cottage from National Park Canoe Rental on Long Pond @ 207-244-5854.


The largest cottage is Windiana III. It is 75 feet from the water. The living room has a cathedral ceiling and a bubble skylight at the center of the house. The main room has a large sofa that converts to a full sleep sofa.. The main bedroom has a queen bed. The second bedroom has a full bed and the third bedroom has two twins. There is a small well equipped kitchen area and one large bathroom with a washer/dryer. This house is made for indoor/outdoor living. The deck wraps around two sides of the house and includes adirondacks, chaises, a gas grill, and dining table.

One other small studio cottage is available for an additional rental fee of $175 per night. Studio is not for rent separately from Windiana III. Windiana II is one main room with water views from all sides. It has a queen bed, wicker couch and chairs, small refrigerator, bar sink, one full bath. This room is great for a couple. The cottage has a deck and a view of the lake as well.

Enjoy the spectacular view from the decks and watch for loons and eagles. Take an early morning kayak ride while the lake is like glass. Sun and swim on the private dock and explore a fresh water lake. Canoe to Rum Island or Duck Rock for a picnic. Fish for bass and salmon. Watch the moon rise over Beech and curl up in a blanket and star gaze at night. Listen to the call of the loons and enjoy this unique property surrounded by ten acres of woods. This is Paradise!

Owner info

About the owner: As a young child, my parents brought us to Mt Desert as my grandmother was a Somes. I have always been in love with the island and wanted to capture its magic. I have a masters in Art History and Museum work and worked in the Smithsonian before raising three children. I have always been in love with the quality of light in Maine. I paint on the island in the summer and show my work in Somesville at The Gallery at Somes Sound.

Why the Owner Chose Mount Desert, ME, USA:
In 1761 our ancestor Abraham Somes settled Mt. Desert. This property came down to us from our grandmother who was a Somes. The land was originally part of an island on Long Pond. In the 1950's a causeway was built over to the island. Today this area is now called Northern Neck. The Northern Neck Road is great for walking or running.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Built on a point on a fresh water lake about 75 feet from the water's edge, 12 foot decks on two sides, Private Dock for swimming. One of the best views on the lake and on Mt. Desert Island!!!
