Rugosa Cottage is one of 3 weekly rental cottages available from Queen Anne's Cottages. Lovely and private enough for a couple's romantic retreat, this cottage has been recently (completely) updated to also be a comfortable vacation home base for families of 4-5. Queen Anne's Cottages is 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 4-5 people, guests in Rugosa Cottage have loved the quiet, woodsy, cozy and bright ocean view from inside the cottage as well as outside on the deck. Preserving the original 1930s aesthetic charm of the cottage, our updates were made with our modern guests' comfort and ease in mind. Snuggle in to the king size bed in the master bedroom, which is dressed with high quality bedding and is so comfortable that guests have contacted us to ask about the brand of mattress! Considered either a cozy reading nook or a bedroom for the kids, the upstairs bedroom has terrific views of the ocean, and is equipped with a twin daybed with trundle, as well as a tv and a comfy reading chair. The small but mighty kitchen is intentionally stocked with items to make sure your kitchen time isn't a chore: high quality cookware, sharp knives, a french press AND a drip coffee maker, microwave, blender, toaster, and everything you need for home based lobster bakes! For grilling types, we've provided a propane grill (with an extra tank and all necessary grill tools) on the deck, so that you can really enjoy grilling with a view. We've made sure that the down filled sectional sofa (with twin sleeper) in the living room is super comfy and inviting, with ample lighting for readers and knitters. While this is a great place to unplug, there are 3 TVs equipped with cable, and high speed wifi internet which is fast enough for you to stream your favorite shows and movies on your tablet or laptop. (The master bedroom tv is a smart tv.)
Though the setting is at the end of a private, 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, 80 degree 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: Sea Heather Cottage- 352349 (lodging for up to 8-10 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!
