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.

About Marilyn Lowell

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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 lobstermen 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.

We came here to find some sense of peace and found exactly what we where looking for. Sitting on the deck and on the shoreline was our favorite part of our stay. Located just an hour from Bar harbor, you are close enough to enjoy a day trip, but very near to many excellent hikes. The setting could not have been more perfect. Our hosts where very good at communicating and the home was well equipped.

We loved having our morning coffee listening to the sound of the buoy bells and watching the lobster boats come and go. Falling asleep and waking to the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore was pure heaven. cuddling up by the inside fireplace at night just made the trip all the more memorable. We traveled as a couple and it could not have been more perfect.

Thank you for an incredible memory!!!

Spectacular views from a beautiful and cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful cabin for a week, from last Saturday until today and I have to say we already miss it. It was such a beautiful cabin inside and out. The details from the fireplace and cozy loft to the beautiful deck and views we loved it all! It is fully equipped with everything you need from kitchen gadgets and utensils to firewood and games/puzzles. We love the decor and the character of this beautiful cottage. It looks exactly like in the pictures! We had a great time hiking, fishing, visiting Acadia, digging for clams, looking for sea glass, sea urchins and more. Our kids loved it and the things they loved doing this week the most were play by the rocks and cozy up at night in the cozy, warm living room. We can't wait to go back hopefully soon. Thank you for sharing your piece of ocean with us!!!!!

Wonderful views and an excellent deck to relax on.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. It's an hour drive to Acadia National Park, so that was a bit far - but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless. We came with 3 kids so there was quite a bit of driving we ended up doing to engage in activities throughout the week, but it worked out just fine for us.

Great home, incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great trip! The house is beautiful with incredible views! It's less than an hour to Acadia but you don't even need to go that far! I hiked 6 mountains while I was there and only 2 were in Acadia. We would highly recommend this home!
