Lovely New Home Set On A Tranquil Wooded Lot. With Air-conditioning.
Thank you for considering Fox Cottage,
This lovely new cape is set on a tranquil wooded lot, offering privacy and a great central location on Mount Desert Island. Equidistant to the villages of Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor and Southwest Harbor, the hiking trails of Acadia National Park are only minutes away, as is fresh water swimming on Long Pond or Echo Lake. Just stepping out the front door is a treat, an open lawn area out front with a grill is perfect for picnics, while the cedar and pine forest out back invite exploration. Built in 2009, this nice clean house features all new furniture and appliances, and a modern, well-equipped kitchen. Direct TV and wireless internet are provided. For sleeping accommodations there are four bedrooms, with one king, two queen and two twin size beds. We have added Air-conditioning upstairs and downstairs this summer to add to the relaxing comfort of the house .
We gladly welcome pets.
Jim & Marilyn.

What an amazing place!
The house worked out perfectly for our group. With the four bedrooms everyone had their own space. We didn't have to pack as much as we had the ability to do laundry. The location is great because it's just far enough away from tourist areas so it's quiet and relaxing but close enough to Bar Harbor and Acadia. The owner was wonderful to work with. I would rent this house again if we ever go back to Bar Harbor.
Great family friendly place
Nice, clean, functional place to stay in the quiet side of the island.
Owner very friendly and always available to answer questions. Would definitely recommend this place for an Acadia getaway!
Beautiful house close to all things Acadia
This is the 2nd time we've rented this house. We stayed with 5 adults, 3 children and two small dogs. The place is spacious, comfortable and very well kept. We love the quiet woodsy location. Perfect for a relaxing get away but still close to Acadia and several small towns. Nearby Long Pond is great for fresh water swimming and kayaking (you can rent kayaks, canoes, etc.). Just a short drive from the house to Southwest Harbor where we purchased fresh lobsters and blueberry pie and enjoyed the quaint town and shops. Little Notch Bakery was one of our favorite shops. Fox Cottage is a beautiful house to rent for a relaxing Maine vacation!
Perfect for my Family
Fox Cottage was perfect for my family of 7 adults! We had more than enough room and never felt crowded. We cooked a lot of meals and the kitchen had every utensil we needed. We made good use of the grill, strung a hammock in the yard, and used the garage for a workout room. We really enjoyed being on the quiet side of the island and didn't mind that it was a 20 minute drive to Bar Harbor. The owner was responsive and very helpful with recommendations!
Wonderful Home, Clean, Comfortable, Perfect for 8 of us!
Fox Cottage was perfect for our family vacation in June. The house was clean, plenty spacious for the 8 of us (6 adults and 2 kids, and 2 dogs). We were able to use the outdoor grill several times, along with the well equipped kitchen, that had everything we needed for making meals. The dining table with its 8-person seating was also perfect for our needs. The bed configurations with 2 Queens and one King, and two twins, also worked out perfectly for our group. The setting was very woodsy and private, and had a large front yard to play games and run around with the kids. Overall, the home was wonderful, and we highly recommend Fox Cottage to any one! Thanks.
Great location, very clean
We spent 5 days on Mt Desert Island & enjoyed every minute of it. We were 6 adults & one child. We had plenty of room in the house. Well stocked with pots & pans. We enjoyed using the fire pit. The owner, Jim, responds quickly via email. We hiked in Acadia, visited Bar Harbor, & the other harbors. Definitely try Trenton Bridge Lobster while you're there!
Plenty of forest and wildlife. Walking distance from trails of Acadia National Park. Cadillac Mountain is a 15 minute drive.
