Sea Heather Cottage is the largest of the 3 weekly rentals available at Queen Anne's Cottages, an eco-friendly, pet friendly, mini-resort type property. Each of the 3 cottages have their own personality, privacy, wifi network, parking, recycling, and specific amenities.
Accommodating up to 8 adults (10 people if at least 2 are children under age 10), guests in Sea Heather have raved about the spacious tranquility and the magnificent, huge and beautiful view from the open floor living and kitchen area. The space is large and comfortable enough for several people to lounge and move around, but soothing and peaceful for even just 2 guests to enjoy.
The large second floor master bedroom has a king bed, an ocean view balcony, ornamental fireplace, en suite bathroom with a giant walk in shower, and a closet big enough to live in. The "cousins' loft" bedroom, (formerly a loft but now a private room with lots of light, space, and views of the woods, pool, and ocean) has 2 full size beds, each with a single trundle bed. This is commonly the kids' room, as it can accommodate 4-6 people. The first floor bedroom, perfect for singles or couples who have a tough time with stairs, is ultra comfortable with a queen size bed and reading chair. In each bedroom you will find: storage and closets for clothing and belongings; high quality bedding, extra bedding, pillows and blankets specifically labeled for each bed; fans; ample lighting for reading; a convenient place to plug in your devices; and most importantly, as sense that this has all been put together for you...because it has! While this is a great place to unplug, each bedroom has a TV equipped with cable, and our high speed wifi internet is fast enough for you to stream your favorite shows and movies on your tablet or laptop. Sea Heather's living, kitchen, and dining space is tastefully and thoughtfully furnished for ease and comfort. The sectional sofa is huge, soft and inviting, the smart tv is equipped with Queen Anne's Cottages Netflix account, the dining table is big enough for 8, and your kitchen prep time certainly won't be a chore. The kitchen is stocked and well organized with high quality cookware, recently updated appliances (including the all important dishwasher!), sharp knives, a french press AND a drip coffee maker, microwave, blender, toaster, slow cooker, and anything you would need for preparing and serving a home based lobster bake or even a Thanksgiving meal for 8! For grilling types, we've provided a large propane grill (with an extra tank and all necessary grill tools). Morning coffee, meals, and conversation can also be enjoyed outside on the deck, which accommodates up to 8 people dining. If you need to do laundry while you're here, there is a washer and dryer located just at the bottom of the stairs in the basement.
Though the setting of the property is at the end of a serene, well maintained dirt road, Queen Anne's Cottages is close to all that Mt. Desert Island has to offer, (5 minutes to Acadia National Park!) and is a short distance to downtown Bar Harbor (5 minutes beyond the National Park entrance.) For water activities, guests from all 3 cottages can enjoy the best of both worlds: the private beach, great for swimming, kayaking and exploring, is steps away...but when the Maine ocean proves too cold, there is a beautiful, solar heated, saltwater pool that kids and adults love (open Memorial Day through Labor Day.) At the end of the day, our oceanside fire pit area is a wonderful spot to enjoy our world renowned sunsets, roast marshmallows, and maybe meet a few of the other guests to exchange notes on your vacation happenings. If you are booking well in advance, several families have rented 2 or all 3 of the cottages for their week long family vacations/reunions. Our other VRBO/Homeaway listing numbers are: Rugosa Cottage- 389528 (lodging for up to 4-5 guests) and Waterlily Cottage - 389012 (great for a couple, or a family of 3 with a young child.) Additionally, you can search for Queen Annes Cottages online, to find our website for more information about the property (VRBO does not allow us to include the link here).
Whether planning a family vacation or a getaway for 2, we would love to be your choice for a beautiful, comfy, and fun spot to stay while exploring and relaxing on Mt Desert Island!
