About the Property
Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)
MAIN CABIN: Sitting at water’s edge, views of the cove abound. The simple interior sleeps 6 with ease. A no-fuss kitchen with bar seating overlooks a dining area with table for 8. Pass through the 2-bed bunkroom to the light and airy master bedroom with queen bed and windows all around. A full bathroom with combined tub and shower sits between the two bedrooms. The spacious, yet cozy “great room” is a perfect family area for puzzles, games or making smores at the Franklin wood stove. A futon sofa bed and set of twins at one end allow it to serve as a third bedroom. The deck off the kitchen is perfect for breakfast or evening drinks, with spectacular views of the Cove, just steps from the water and the dock.
GUEST CABIN: A log cabin sits a few steps further from the water, but enjoys views of the cove through the trees and access to the same dock and shoreline. The open kitchen and living space is cool in the heat and cozy when it rains with woodstove, a small dining table for four and two bench sofas for reading or napping. Two bedrooms, one with queen and one with twins, share a full bathroom with combined tub and shower. Depending on your mood or the weather, choose to relax on the deck outside or in the, screened porch with picnic table.
You can choose to spend your days on the Cove, exploring the quiet side of Mt. Desert Island (perfect for bikes) or 20 minutes in the car get to the hundreds of treasures of Acadia National Park and the island’s quaint towns have to offer. Night life and restaurants are fine in Bar Harbor. Rainy day amusements and outlet shopping are just far enough away.

Year Purchased: 1928
About the owner: I live in Takoma Park, Maryland in a wonderful small town, community setting. Maine is is never far from my mind.
Why the Owner Chose Mount Desert, ME, USA:
Our grandfather bought the land in 1928. He chose the point of land on Squid Cove for its beauty and because it was an easy canoe ride to his father in-law's cabin! We three brothers, like our mother before us, grew up going there in the summer and brought our kids when we had them. When it passed to us some years ago, we had to decide if we could keep this treasure in the family. Since neither our kids nor we could conceive of letting it go, renting it is how we hope to be able to do so
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
These compelling emails came from our guests: "We absolutely LOVED your place. You are all so lucky to have such a treasure in your family. It was fun imagining your grandparents spending the whole summer there back in the early days. We saw so many seals - it was so beautiful and peaceful. One week is not long enough." (The Weavers) "Our visit was awesome and we loved the cabin, the cove, the changing tides and the bird life. Saw eagles, harbor seals and many shore birds. The camp history is amazing. It is a very special place on a small island in the great state of Maine. Best wishes in your efforts to conserve the land and we greatly appreciate your sharing of this wonderful piece of the planet." (The Allisons)
