Property description

Cozy lakefront cottage with Private Sandy Beach on Beech Hill Pond near Acadia National Park & Bar Harbor, Maine.

This delightful waterfront cottage is comfortably furnished and well appointed with all the conveniences - swim float, fire pit with firewood included, Adirondack chairs for de-stressing.

Enjoy the stillness of morning mist rising from the lake, soft summer breezes and the calming songs of the resident loons. The fishing's fun, the swimming's refreshing and boating is just plain relaxing, so bring your toys.

Only 30 miles to Bar Harbor & Acadia National Park. Free WiFi and firewood included. Dogs OK with fee.

Acadia National Park: In 1913, President Woodrow Wilson set aside 6000 acres (within what is now Acadia National Park) as Sieur de Monts National Monument. With the acquisition of more land and private support and funding, in 1919 President Wilson signed an act establishing Lafayette National Park. In 1929 the parks name was changed to Acadia.

Acadia National Park was established to protect the area's spectacular scenic values, Maine's rock bound coast, its coastal and its offshore islands as characterized by the geologic features, natural history and the native plant and animal life. Forty five miles of rustic carriage roads weave around the mountains and through the valleys of Acadia National Park, the gift of philanthropist John D Rockefeller, Jr., and family. Rockefeller, a skilled horseman, desired to travel on motor free byways via horse and carriage into the heart of Mount Desert Island. His efforts resulted in roads with sweeping vistas and close up views of the landscape.

Cadillac Mountain: At 1,530 feet, Cadillac Mountain is not only the tallest mountain in Acadia National Park, but also the tallest mountain along the eastern coast of the United States. Rising high above the town of Bar Harbor, Cadillac Mountain offers magnificent views of the Porcupine Islands and Frenchman Bay. Explore the summit of this granite mountain along a .3-mile trail, which includes wayside exhibits about natural and human history. Portions of this trail are accessible to wheelchair users.

Beech Hill Pond is a beautiful, four and a half-mile long, spring-fed lake located in Downeast Maine near Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. It makes a relaxing vacation spot for anyone wanting to explore the Downeast Maine area, without the crowds of Acadia National Park. The setting for Beech Hill Pond couldn’t be prettier – the crystal clear water is surrounded by peaceful mountains. Just a few of the activities available at Beech Hill Pond are swimming, fishing, boating, hiking, bicycling, wildlife viewing or just relaxing and enjoying the views. The pond is one of several high quality coldwater sportfish lakes in the Union River drainage.

For sightseers, a forty-five minute drive takes you to Mount Desert Island, home to Acadia National Park which is the oldest national park on the East Coast. Ellsworth is only a 15 minutes away and also has shopping and restaurants, including fresh clam chowder and lobsters right off the boat.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: The Cowans, formerly from Maine now living on the West Coast.

Why the Owner Chose Otis, ME, USA:
We are originally from Maine and purchased Loons Nest Cottage to ensure our children have the opportunity to experience summers in Maine the way we did as kids. Beech Hill Pond is a very special place as it is close to Acadia National Park & Bar Harbor, but provides a peaceful retreat after a day of hiking and sightseeing. The lake is great for kayaking and canoeing, or just watching the Loons.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Private sandy beach, secluded getaway from it all spot. We also own property #162312 Sandy Cove Cottage next-door.
