About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Simplicity at its finest!
You are tucked under the towering oaks and spruce trees of Grandmother’s cottage. Wake up to the sound of surf and the call of the loon. Sip your morning coffee in the screened gazebo, perched above the shoreline. Watch the lobsterman check traps and the seabirds hunt for breakfast. Take your morning shower outside in the sea breeze.
You are a steppingstone from Acadia where outdoor adventures abound. Plan a hike up Cadillac Mountain, pedal around Schoodic Point with breathtaking views of the Downeast coast or ride miles of carriage roads stopping for popovers at the Jordan Pond House. Kayak along the pristine coastline.
Browse for antiques, homemade gifts or Native American crafts. Lunch on lobster cooked and cracked right off the boat.
Simply sit back. This is Maine. While away the day with a good book, an artist’s brush or a writer’s pen. And at the end of the day, take your glass of wine to the gazebo where the water and sky fill with the brilliance of a mighty sunset and the majesty of the night sky.

Wooded area of cottages and year round homes along the tip of the Oak Point peninsula. Quiet, off the beaten path but a quick drive to Acadia and all that a National Park includes.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My Grandmother, my Mother, now we enjoy this beautiful place. My grandchildren are the fifth generation to vacation at this cottage. This is Maine, 'the way life should be.' What a priceless treasure this is. We live year round in Colorado and have a few weeks of the summer when the cottage is not filled with family and friends. Perhaps you would enjoy the peace and relaxation.

Why the Owner Chose Trenton, ME, USA:
There are few places on Earth where the busy mind slows to a gentler place. Watching the tides change, hearing the soft lap of the waves, feeling the breezes drift through through the trees, these are treasured moments to be one with the universe. This is a quiet haven.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This place is a unique blend of the present and the past. Wifi, but no TV, new appliances and my Grandmother's dishes, new beds and wicker furniture from the 1930's.
