About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 only)

Cozy three room cottage with one bedroom, right on the ocean with 320 feet of sandy beach and a 180 degree view of Frenchman's Bay and Acadia. We have our own sandy beach to enjoy a swim or relax in the sun. If you enjoy kayaking or canoeing you can put in right out front of the cottage. You can bring your own or rent one locally. With it's inspirational views, here is the perfect spot for artist or writer, or for a couple looking to share a special getaway. The early morning sunrise is spectacular. You may even catch sight of a moose or deer grazing on the lawn, or a seal resting on the ledge out front at half tide. Its a wonderful spot to view the mountains of Acadia or the large cruise ships on their way into Bar Harbor, or watch the 4masted ships on their daily cruise around the bay.

There is a general store a few miles away for last minute things, and the town of Ellsworth just 10 miles away with its antique shops and restaurants and supermarkets. There is a hospital and a library, a cinema, and a scenic train ride too.
The drive to Bar Harbor is 22 miles by auto, or you may want to kayak the six miles by water.There are many things to do and see in the town of Bar Harbor with its many unique shops, galleries and wonderful restaurants. While on the island make sure to visit Acadia National Park, one of the most visited national parks in the USA. It has lots of walking trails for novices or hiking for all ages to enjoy. Bring your swim suit and visit 'Sand Beach' on your ride around the park, and don't miss the show at 'Thunderhole' or maybe stop by the famous 'Jordan Pond House' for lunch or afternoon tea and popovers overlooking the 'pond'. And don't forget about the "other" part of Acadia National Park located at Schoodic Point, off the island..It is my favorite spot and less crowded. It is worth the drive to see the views and the thundering surf, especially at the upcoming tide or a particularly windy day. It's amazing!
Our cottage is fully equipped with linens, towels, dishes, pots & pans, stove with oven, refrigerator, microwave, electric coffee maker, toaster and washer and dryer.
The bedroom has a comfortable Queen size bed , a closet and a bureau for your use. The bathroom has a tub with shower. The living room has three comfortable chairs for relaxing and watching television with Cable. There are puzzles, books and a Scrabble game for your enjoyment.
A gas grill is available if desired, and internet service is available if needed. No pets and no smoking please.
