Otter Rocks no longer has vacancies for the summer. The Shed (4 people) is available in late September and October.
Ever dream of a house built onto a cliff overlooking the ocean?
Otter Rocks and "The Shed" at Otter Rocks are distinctively designed 'Frank Lloyd Wright' style houses. The houses are built into their surroundings and the granite ledge they are perched on, overlooking the rocky shore of Blue Hill Bay – a truly spectacular spot. This is a property that has all the creature comforts plus the charm of unique Maine summer homes. Enjoy a panoramic view of the bay and watch sunsets from either house. You are guaranteed to see boats, birds, porpoises and, at night, shooting stars. Keep watching and you may spot an eagle, a seal or an otter. Otter Rocks is located on the "quiet side" of Mount Desert Island with easy access to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.
Both houses have minimum 7 day stays, however, may be waived at the owner's sole discretion. Otter Rocks can be rented independently or in combination with The Shed (adding The Shed to your reservation will increase Otter Rock's pricing by $1,200/ week). The Shed can only be rented independently after September 15th ($1,450/ wk).
Otter Rocks is built on four levels, cascading toward the shoreline. Four cozy bedrooms are furnished with a queen bed, a full bed, and two twin beds; all well removed from the living areas. A pull out couch is also located in the family room for a willing guest. A fully equipped bright and roomy kitchen takes the chore out of meal prep, inspiring the chef with ocean views. With expansive decks on both the north and south side of the house, you can always find a sunspot or a place to sneak away to read a book from the house's lending library. Maximum occupancy is 6 people.
"The Shed", a family reference to the cabin's location on the property where a shed was originally built, is an additional house that is only steps away from Otter Rocks. It provides you a cozy, self sufficient get-away, "in-law" suite or expansion space for more people to join your Mt. Desert vacation! The Shed has two bedrooms with a queen and two twin beds, respectively, a full bath and ample living space with spectacular views. A gas fireplace will keep you toasty warm when there is a chill. An open galley kitchen provides a small refrigerator, microwave and hot plate-cook top and a four seat, eat-in dining table. A gas grill, accessible directly off the kitchen on The Shed's large, western facing deck, opens up your culinary possibilities. Maximum occupancy is 4 people.
The property is very secluded without being isolated. At the end of a dead end road, only you and your other guests will be nearby. The villages of Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor, and Bar Harbor, plus Acadia National Park’s main entrances and trails are fifteen to thirty minutes away by car.
Swimming is possible for the intrepid, given the rocky shore and the ocean water, but access into the water is not easy. However, nearby lakes may be more inviting.

About the owner: Having lived or summered on or around the island for more than 40 years, Mt. Desert has always been considered our home away from home. It is a place that we migrate to each summer (and even an occasional winter) regardless of where ever our family is on the planet. It is an integral part of our family tradition and we would love to share it with you.
Why the Owner Chose Bernard, Tremont, ME, USA:
Oceanfront. Secluded. Dramatic architecture. Otters (possibly). What more do we need to say?!
