Property description

Our comfortable cottage is private, surrounded by woods with a view of the ocean and passing boats through an opening in the trees. Our beach is accessible via a long boardwalk leading from the side yard. Great beach walking and shelling and a place for picnics.

In addition to full kitchen with oven and microwave, there are three bedrooms sleeping 5 with a roll out bed for an additional person. There are two large bedrooms: one with a queen and the other with a twin and a double. The third bedroom has a single bed. All rooms have electric heat when needed. The cottage has complete housekeeping facilities and sheets and towels are provided. The cottage has wi-fi and internet capability.

We are within a few minutes drive of Southwest Harbor for dining and shopping. Acadia National Park is easily accessible all over the island and offers lots of opportunities for hiking, bicycling and kayaking. There are sailing opportunities in Southwest Harbor, and Northeast Harbor and boat trips to the islands.

You will never tire of exploring one of our country's most beautiful islands.
