Ocean’s Edge is located in the quiet village of Summer Harbor, just next to Winter Harbor and about 35 minutes from Bar Harbor – and the main portion of Acadia National Park. Our property offers stunning views and a quiet retreat in coastal Maine with easy access to hiking, shopping, golfing, and dining.
The house itself is a luxurious log cabin - perfect for a comfortable getaway with oversized bathtubs and an open-air feeling. It boasts floor-to-ceiling windows in the main portion of the house, a chefs kitchen, and plenty of natural light. It also has a laundry room, an expansive front deck, and surrounding grounds that are perfect for exploring. Guests often spot eagles, porcupines, minke whales, and other wildlife in the early morning hours! The size and layout of the house makes it perfect for larger or smaller groups.
Ocean's Edge also has a floating dock, and boat mooring is available for small and large vessels. The coastline is great to kayak along as the waters are peaceful in good weather.
In the morning you could enjoy the deck and sip some coffee while you take in the view and plan your day. During the day you could read book on the dock, walk the shoreline in search of starfish, or set out into the water with a kayak. For dinner grill up a fresh lobster and steamers and enjoy the spectacular sunset.
If you're interested in exploring the area, drive over (or even ride your bike) to Acadia National Park’s lesser travelled Schoodic Peninsula and hike along the bold granite coastline. Grab some lunch in the quaint town of Winter Harbor where you can visit galleries and shop for gifts made by local artisans. You can also head to nearby Jones Pond or Donnell Pond to swim and fish. For more adventures, you can catch the ferry to Bar Harbor and hike the trails of Acadia, or walk around Bar Harbor.
In the Summer months, we rent the property from Saturday-Saturday weekly, but we are open to shorter stays during the Spring and Fall.
