About the Property

Cottage, House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 7)

Nestled in quiet Goose Cove, just minutes from the charming village of Southwest Harbor and Acadia National Park, our guest cottage offers 21 beautiful secluded acres with easy shorefront access with panoramic views to the southwest over Blue Hill Bay, Swan's Island and beyond to Isle Au Haut. Here on the ''Quietside'' of Mount Desert Island you may enjoy our very quiet and private setting by relaxing on your spacious deck while watching the sailboats and lobstermen return with their daily catch, or strolling down through our well-tended front lawn to your private beach.

Our comfortable one-level cottage offers a combined kitchen, living and dining area with 4 bedrooms with 2 full baths (one king bed, two with twin beds- private bath and a smaller room with a twin bed.) We offer Wi-Fi, Cable TV with 2 new Flat Screen TV's, Weber Gas Grill as well as board games, puzzles, and cards for a rainy day or cozy night, and all rooms have individual heat for those cool ocean mornings!

Less than a half-hour drive from Bar Harbor, our cottage is located just minutes from Acadia National Park's most spectacular attractions: Echo Lake, Seawall, Ship's Harbor, Wonderland, Long Pond and Bass Harbor Head Light, as well as many miles of magnificent trails for hiking and carriage trails for biking

You are less than five minutes' drive from the Acadia National Park trails called Wonderland and Ship's Harbor, which bring you out to gorgeous rocky bluffs along the open ocean and Maine's famous rocky coast. A minute more and you're at Bass Harbor Head Light, the most photographed lighthouse on the U.S. East Coast. In five minutes more you’re in Southwest Harbor with ample opportunities for shopping, dining, and boating; in two more minutes you’re hiking Acadia Mountain or swimming in Echo Lake; and in ten minutes more you're in Bar Harbor, with its quaint shops, restaurants, whale watching, naturalist boating, sailing, deep-sea diving, Park tours, and many other opportunities.

When you return to your peaceful setting, enjoy your private beach 350 ft. from your door! : Launch your kayak from our shore which is an easy stroll through your lawn shown in our photographs. Enjoy a cool drink while you relax on your own Adirondack chairs at sunset. Explore the cove or walk along the 1,000 feet of private shoreline to your pebble beach and explore our many lovely wooded acres.

In the evenings, prepare a delicious fresh seafood meal in your fully equipped kitchen while enjoying beautiful sunsets and spectacular views of the night sky from your peaceful oceanfront retreat.

Our cottage is the perfect setting to relax, refresh, recharge your energies and WE WELCOME YOU!

Car: Necessary

We are located minutes away from Acadia National Park, where hiking and biking are favorite activities of visitors. You will love vacationing here on the 'Quietside' of the Island - away from the hustle & bustle of Bar Harbor, yet in close proximity to excellent restaurants and all the activities of Mt. Desert Island. The Villages of Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor and Bar Harbor plus Acadia National Park's main entrance are a picturesque 10 to 25 minutes away by car.

Located near the end of a private drive on well sheltered Goose Cove, our secluded 21 acres of land also provides plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities. We have 1,000 feet of private shore frontage with beach, ledges, and tidal pools for hours of exploring. Kayaks may be rented locally and launched easily from our beach.

Although you may not want to leave beautiful Goose Cove, you'll want to venture out, as the site-seeing and recreational opportunities abound on Mount Desert Island. In Acadia National Park there are endless mountains and trails to hike or bike, museums to visit, whale or bird watching, first class shopping and dining to experience, and excellent fresh and salt water fishing. For the golfing enthusiasts, close by in Southwest Harbor is The Causeway Club, a fun and scenic 9 hole course. For a bigger golf challenge, you can play the famous 18-hole Kebo Valley Golf Club in Bar Harbor.

After a full day of island adventure, come back to a peaceful setting to prepare fresh seafood for dinner in our well equiped kitchen and enjoy a beautiful sunset while relaxing on our large deck overlooking Goose Cove and Blue Hill Bay.
