Mill Cove Cottage-Just for Two
The perfect couple’s retread. 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 room 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 evenings by the fire. It just takes two to make Mill Cove Cottage your perfect couple's retreat.

Mill Cove Cottage is 25 miles from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Close enough to enjoy but far enough to get away from the madness.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: 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 28 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.
