Our home is located on the 'quiet side' of Mount Desert Island, surrounded by Acadia National Park. It is the childhood home of our girls and the vacation home of my Ohio family, and has proven to be the perfect place for extended family gatherings. The large family room is set back from the road and affords ample space for family fun or a quiet place to cozy up by the fire. Our album collection is available to listen to and for the musically inclined, a piano, organ and conga drum. We love games, so we provide many board games and puzzles for your recreational pleasure as well as a large screen television, pool and foosball tables, and Wi-Fi.
The kitchen is fully equipped and has a butcher block counter for ease of meal preparation. The dining room is spacious and has a wonderful view of the harbor. Off of the dining room is a mother-in-law suite, which includes a bedroom with a king-sized bed, bathroom, and kitchenette. Three bedrooms are on the second floor, two of which have ocean views and queen sized beds. The third has two twin beds and looks out to the backyard.. The sunroom located upstairs also overlooks the harbor, and has a daybed.
We are within walking distance to town where you can find a generous selection of restaurants and shops. There is also an oceanarium, bird carving museum and all the amenities a year-round village has to offer. Across the street and down the hill, you will find the Great Harbor Marina, formerly Stinson's Cannery. There are many hiking trails within a ten minute drive as well as swimming at Echo Lake beach, the Bluffs or the Ledges. There is golf at The Causeway Club, bike, canoe, and boat rentals, and miles of rock bound shore to explore.
We welcome you to Mount Desert Island and look forward to serving you!
