MILL COVE WATERFRONT COTTAGE, JUST FOR TWO
The perfect couple’s retreat. Perfect for honeymooners. Perfect for anniversaries, perfect for couples just wanting to spend some time together. This one bedroom, one bath cottage is built and equipped for two. There is no accomodations for kids or in-laws. The couch is not a sleeper! Awaken in your king size bed and watch the sun come up over the water without raising your head from the pillow. Sit on the deck in the morning to drink your coffee overlooking the ever-changing cove. Spend your days exploring the rocky Maine coast and its picturesque small villages or experience the tranquility of a kayak outing. In the evening, cuddle up by the fire and roast your marshmallows. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are a short 25-mile drive, away from the madness but close enough to enjoy. It just takes two to make Mill Cove Cottage your perfect couple's retreat.

About Dale and Vicki Strohmaier
Vicki and I live and work in Delaware, Vicki as a nurse liaison for our local hospital ER and I in custom home sales. We have been traveling to Maine off and on for the last 30 years, first staying in motels, then bed and breakfast and lastly in a cottage in Blue Hill we found on HomeAway. We have fantasized about owning a cottage in Maine and during each trip we scouted properties for sale. In 2010 we found Mill Cove Cottage on the internet and went to take a look at it during our fall trip. It was a mess! Weeds filled the lot, window panes were falling out, the roof was shot, there were no cabinets, it had an old gas range and bar sized refrigerator, a toilet and claw foot bath tub sat in the middle bedroom! But we fell in love with the location and the uniqueness of the cottage and settled on it in December. The challenge became how to transform this run down gem into a desirable retreat for couples wanting a special getaway, doing this from our home 700 miles away! By pure luck we found Marilyn (the property manager) and Arthur. Arthur was able to take our amateur drawings and sketchy ideas and work his magic. In the spring of 2011 we arrived to apply the finishing touches. In July of 2011 our first couple arrived. They were newlyweds! Mill Cove Cottage is designed, furnished and supplied for couples. There is no room for children, friends or in-laws. The couch is not a sleeper! It is a retreat, a getaway, a sanctuary. It is for getting to know each other better and for reflections of the past. It is for young or young at heart. It is for relaxing and exploring. It is for two people who want to spend time together.

Perfect Place for Our Honeymoon
My wife and I have been talking about visiting Maine for awhile, and our honeymoon presented the perfect chance to do just that. The cottage and outdoor area was so awesome, it might be hard to describe just how happy we were just to sit on the deck or by the fire. Walking out on the lake/inlet during low tide was very fun and rewarding. The owners took care of everything for us, from basic pantry items to just about anything else we might have needed over the week (and we brought plenty with us, too). It was charming through and through--the perfect place to spend our honeymoon. It was also fairly close to food stops and Ellsworth, which is now one of my favorite small towns. We found plenty to do in the area with especial thanks to the helpful guest book that included lots of sights and activities for the area.
Thank you so much for putting this place together! And at a pretty affordable price!
The perfect vacation!
The house and property is the perfect get away for 2! The house was very clean and had everything that you needed. Very quite and peaceful, perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Mill Cove Cottage is an amazing hideaway -- exceeded our expectations.
My wife and I were looking for a place near Acadia National Park that was secluded and on the water. We came across Mill Cove Cottage on HomeAway and new immediately it was the right place. The stay ended up exceeding our expectations. Things we loved. 1. Great owner experience. Dale made the whole process simple. He also provided great recommendations for local dining, activities, and sightseeing. 2. Incredible location. The property is gorgeous and the view can't be best. We watched the sun set over the water from the back porch each night. 3. The cottage is unique and cozy -- exactly what we were looking for. Bottom line, we loved it! We will be back.
Couldn't be happier with our stay. Well equipped and furnished, clean as a whistle, beautiful view and well located for all Acadia Natl Park has to offer. Highly recommend!
Excellently maintained cozy place for two. Allows access to Acadia easily.
Excellent hosts with their communication and stocking of the house. Modern, clean and tidy.
Close to road and quite a few cars race by pretty fast. The stairs may be a bit steep for anyone not steady on their feet. Nice view of the tidal cove with accessories like a fire pit and access to the water.
Romantic cottage for two
We just got back from our week-long rental at Mill Cove. Without a doubt, this home exceeded our expectations. The pictures on line accurately depict how things look inside and out. The house is basically secluded and offers incredible views of the cove. We loved watching the tide roll in and out. The kayak is a wonderful addition to the rental which we used several times to explore the area from the water. We enjoyed getting a first-hand view of the local fisherman at work. We were very impressed with the detail the owners put into making our stay as comfortable and carefree as possible. They really thought of everything you could need especially traveling in from out of state. Dale and Vicki provided a detailed itinerary which we found very helpful as we explored the area. We hit the highlights of Acadia but also found many interesting places to visit outside the park. We highly recommend Mill Cove as the place to stay for your week-long getaway for couples. Thank you for a wonderful vacation as we celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary.
Quiet setting, centrally located 30 minutes from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, Winter Harbor, Blue Hill and Bangor. Opportunities for new experiences are endless. Spend your days hiking, biking, whale watching or exploring the picturesque towns along Maine’s rocky coast. Or stay home and wander the woods, launch the kayak, go clamming or just read your favorite book. Good memories will come from your stay at Mill Cove Cottage.
