We would love to secure your vacation time on MDI here at Barnacle landing. The VRBO connections have been wonderful and everyone has expressed their wonder and amazement at our best-kept secret, the cottages on the bay. Renters are still saying this place 'exceeds expectations' What else can we say? Come see for yourselves.

This family run property always exceeds renters expectations. The 'RabbitHole' cottage is totally family friendly and has a great deck for sunsets, b-b-q's and playing. The surrounding woods are nature's masterpiece. Quintessential Maine. There is lots more we offer, email me for details of Barnacle Landing, on the WESTSIDE of MDI off Tremont Road.

multiple private bedrooms, kings, queens, twins beds plus a sleeping loft with twin. Added room to play as well.
New gas cooktop, new windows, finely maintained and CLEAN!

The property is 1500 feet of shoreline and the cove proves to be a great place to explore Maine shore life and geology. Nearby, Pretty Marsh is chock full of places to explore by rowing, paddling. The harbor is home to seals, porpoises, great blue heron, osprey and frequent eagles. Fishing is always a great way to spend your time.
If you like to swim in cold water, there are ladders at the dock and a gravel beach to wander in and out of the water. Of course, there are warmer ponds and lakes very nearby, too.
40 acres of woods surround the houses are full of pathways and mossy areas for exploring. There are mussels to collect at low tide and you can steam your own lobsters on the deck of your house.
And, SUNSET is an amazing feature here on the west side of Mount Desert Island.

We have other cottages available, please contact me for more information. Summer's almost here so let's talk about our open rental weeks. Email me directly, I can forward a link to the 4 cottages we have to share with you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1955

About the owner: My husband, David, & I have lived on MDI since 2008. We made a life switch from 'the city' and love this place. We are lucky to have work in winter to sustain us- that is the challenge on MDI. Treat the locals with respect, they give it their all in summer!

Why the Owner Chose Tremont, ME, USA:
This camp has been in the family for over 60 years. It's very well maintained and improved- it's stellar for a cottage in the Maine woods, on the WEST SIDE of MDI where the sunset rocks. No musty smells!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Peace and quiet of the woods and shore are fabulous. Access to the National Park and coming home to Barnacle Landing are worth the energy to get here.
