About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

Nestled in the woods and exceptionally close to the shoreline, this unique cottage is a perfect vantage point to experience the rugged beauty of Maine.

Fully furnished, the living and dining rooms look out to the ocean view and are anchored by a large fireplace. Exposed wooden trusses provide a lofty feel. A stairway leads to the upper level loft space which sleeps up to 6 and overlooks the living space. A private bedroom with queen size bed is on the main level as well as a full bath and fully equipped kitchen. Internet, WiFi and TV with cable access is onsite. Bed linens and towels are provided.

The large, secluded deck is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sights, smells, and sounds of the coast. From here plan excursions to nearby Schoodic Point, part of Acadia National Park, where hiking, biking, and sightseeing opportunities abound. Catch a scenic boat ride to Bar Harbor from nearby Winter Harbor or browse galleries and shops.
Complete your stay with a lobster dinner from the local co-op.

Owner info

About the owner: This property was built by our Aunt and we have been visiting this beautiful coastline since we were children. Now we have the pleasure of sharing it with our own families and others, creating memories to last a lifetime. Once you visit, you'll understand the unique charm and beauty this part of the country has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage is a beautiful location to decompress and relax. The sound of the surf splashing on the rocks and ledges is comforting. Sip your morning coffee watching the sunrise above the local lobsterman hauling in traps. Enjoy the ebb and flow of the surf from the generous deck close to the shore or warm up inside by the fire.
