About the Property

Family Friendly Weekly Rental - 3 Bedroom, 1 Bath

This 1-level year-round property is comfortable and ideal for a variety of family needs. The main entrance of the cottage opens from a spacious front yard into a cozy living area with a glass-front wood stove and a full kitchenette. The bathroom is located conveniently near the entrance.

The master bedroom features a quiet sitting area and a private sliding glass entrance, and features a separate monitor heater for individual comfort. This bedroom has ample space to set up a portable crib or air mattress for extra sleeping (both available at the cottage).

The Full bedroom is ideal for children, teens, a nanny, second couple or grandparents. The third bedroom includes 2 twin beds and is designed with children in mind as well.

The home is fully equipped with all the basic amenities to make your stay comfortable and convenient. It provides a cool respite in the summer and a cozy and inviting place to gather in the cold winter months. Ideal for cross country ski vacations on Mount Desert Island Carriage Roads.

***We are members of the Southwest Harbor/Tremont Chamber of Commerce.

There is no shortage of activities available on Mount Desert Island. 120 miles of impeccably maintained carriage trails provide ideal conditions for biking, hiking, or cross-country skiing. The many ponds and lakes and quick access to the ocean allow for swimming, sailing, motor boating, beach combing, and other activities. On rainy days, visit a local historical library, museum, or gallery.
In the winter, go ice-fishing, head north for the dog sled races for a day, or go snowshoeing, snowmobiling, or sledding! If you enjoy the outdoors, this is the place to be! The scenic views are breathtaking any time of the year. Play golf, take a garden tour, watch a local performance, and have a great meal! Ledges Cottage is ideally located on a quiet circle about 5 miles from the center of Southwest Harbor. It is conveniently located 1 mile or less from the nearest convenience store, post office, town office, and the working docks. In addition, the Bar Harbor Airport just 15 miles away makes your flight into town a breeze. (Bangor Airport is located approx. 50 miles away).

Car: Recommended

Mount Desert Island is a beautiful getaway spot which offers something for everyone. In addition to rocky and sand beaches, the mountain views are spectacular, and there is plenty of hiking for all abilities. There are 4 well-groomed golf courses on the island, and a multitude of galleries and museums, plenty of shopping, antiquing, and sightseeing. If boating is your hobby, you can rent a kayak, hop on a whale watching cruise, or charter a vessel to suit your own tastes and schedule. For those with children, the possibilities are endless.

Golf: 5 miles away

Ski: For those interested in cross country skiing, there are plenty of well-groomed carriage trails available on Mount Desert Island. During the winter when the Park Loop road is closed, many skiers also take advantage of the opportunity to ski there as well, and the views are spectacular!
