Property description

Acadia Bayside Cottage is a very clean, well-kept waterfront cottage 60 feet to the shore, lots of light and warmth, two fireplace stoves; Master bedroom with ocean views/sleeps 2 (Queen Bd), 1 bedroom with 2 twin beds; 1 Queen pull-out couch/futon sleeps 2 in the great room with amazing ocean views; 1 bathroom with shower; kitchen, reading nook with fireplace & ocean views, living room/dining room with ocean views, gas grill and patio with outdoor seating and two smaller side decks. Clean bedding & linens are provided weekly

Acadia Bayside Cottage is nestled in a grove of tall pines. Relax in the bentwood Adirondack style chairs on the bluff overlooking the bay. Witness seals, bald eagles, blue herons, osprey and harbor porpoises from the cottage or in your kayak on the water. Peaceful and private, yet close by to all area amenities of the Acadia region.

By car, our cottage is approx:

10 min to seafood restaurants/lobster pounds just off of Route 3 in Trenton along the route you'd follow onto Mount Desert Island (MDI).

10 min to the head of Mount Desert Island which is an area known as the Town Hill section of Bar Harbor.

20 min to the main Acadia National Park entrance and Hulls Cove Visitor's Center.

25 min to downtown Bar Harbor where there are many restaurants & shops, 3 pharmacies, movie theater, grocery stores and much more.

Many hiking & biking trails within 20-30 min drive.(trails and carriage roads can be accessed all over the island)

10 min to Ellsworth - where you'll find restaurants, movie theaters, grocery stores, pharmacies, Walmart, TJ Maxx, L.L. Bean and other stores. Main Street in Ellsworth, which leads down to a small bridge & river, is a nice part of this small city - sort of an old fashioned downtown with some interesting shops and restaurants.
You'll find restaurants along both sides of Main Street. The Union River Lobster Pot is just over the bridge and nestled along the river just behind Rooster Brothers specialty foods store & has excellent seafood. There are also some chain restaurants along Route 3 in Ellsworth.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: I was born in Maine to parents 'from away' as they say and grew up in mid-coast Maine. Although I sought adventure in far away places during my 20's, I chose to return to this amazing state because there's no place quite like Maine or like Mainers. In past years, I've worked for the Hurricane Island Outward Bound School in mid-coast Maine and am an alumna of three of their programs. For several years, I led cultural and educational tours primarily in the Middle East, but also in the United States, Canada and Europe. This work led to the founding of my an educational travel company, which I operated with my husband for several years. In recent years, I've worked in Maine in the areas of public health and geriatric social work. Before recently joining the Institute for Humane Education in Surry, I worked at the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor. I happily live on Mount Desert Island with my husband, son, daughter and a rescued greyhound named Chester.

Why Trenton, ME, USA:
Over the past several years, my husband and I have been looking for a very special property, and feel lucky to have finally found all we were searching for in Acadia Bayside Cottage. This cottage has everything we hoped for - a beautiful, oceanfront setting, vibrant sunsets to gaze at in the evenings and a location very close to Bar Harbor, Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. This cozy abode quickly felt like home to us and a place we could envision spending a lot of time - without having to drive far to feel like we were getting away from it all. Acadia Bayside Cottage has a presence - a strong sense of place - which quickly draws you in and invites you to relax & live in the peaceful moments we hope you'll experience while enjoying our little slice of paradise!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Acadia Bayside Cottage is situated on beautiful Mill Cove, near the confluence of Union River Bay and Blue Hill Bay. Our cove is an excellent place to sea kayak, and is frequently visited by Seals, Harbor Porpoise, Bald Eagles, Blue Heron, Double-Crested Cormorant, King Fisher, and Loons. Four-footed friends have included the occasional White-tailed Deer and baby Fox!
