About Susan Lindberg
Living too many miles from Maine, siblings Jim and Susan decided to make this special place on Long Cove in Sullivan, Maine, available to vacation renters during part of the year. Throughout their childhood, the owners spent two weeks of every summer together with their family at the Sullivan home of their maternal grandfather, affectionately known as 'Bumpa.' The current cottage was built in 1971 on the wooded lot across U.S. Highway 1 from the original homestead. Those family vacations left us with wonderful memories, such as: • riding with 'Bumpa' in an open 1946 Willys Jeep to the corner store for comics and ice cream before breakfast • swimming at Flanders or Molasses Ponds on a hot summer day • collecting shells, driftwood, and colored glass along the beaches at Sorrento • 'bowling' with naturally rounded stones at Grindstone Neck • hikes on Mt. Desert Island, Schoodic Mountain, and even Mt. Katahdin • drives around the Park Loop Road to see Egg Rock, Thunder Hole, and Otter Cliffs • watching the awesome power of the surf at Schoodic Point • picking wild blueberries and raspberries for wonderful tastes of summer • searching for the constellations and witnessing the Perseid meteor showers on crystal-clear nights. Visitors to this special place on Long Cove will take their own memories along with them when they leave. We hope they will return to create still more for many summers to come!
What makes this Cottage unique
The area immediately surrounding Frenchman Bay Getaway is especially rich in artist studios and galleries. Your best guide to these is the yellow brochure “Artist Studio Tour Map” which is available in the cottage. The guide features a dozen studios in Sullivan, Franklin, Hancock, Winter Harbor and Ellsworth, all worth a visit and ideal for a gray or rainy day during your stay. Two of our personal favorites happen to be just minutes away from the cottage: Spring Woods Gallery, www.springwoodsgallery.com (Mon-Sat, 9am to 6pm), and Moosetrack Studio, www.moosetrackweaving.com (daily, 10am to 6pm, or by appt.) In addition, the Gallery at Somes Sound, in Somesville, Mount Desert Island, is noted for fine paintings, sculpture and furniture. The Gallery website is here: http://galleryatsomessound.com/ .

Great family vacation
This was such a nice place to get away from all the crowds at Acadia. It was peaceful and so relaxing. We saw lots of wildlife: eagle, herons, turkeys, deer, seals, an eel and many, many kinds of birds. The kids loved playing in the cove and finding all the natural treasures that it offered. The house was clean and comfortable. This was perfect for our family.
Ultimate Maine Getaway!
This cottage captured the beauty, history and hospitality of Maine. My family chooses vacations to "get away" from stress and avoid crowds, and this cottage definitely delivered. It had everything you could need for a cozy family vacation or an adventurous trek. Though there is wifi, my three boys spent most of their time exploring the cove, climbing, splashing and exploring. Because of the tide, it was a new experience every few hours. It was so peaceful and awe inspiring. Yet despite being away from it all, you are still close enough to tourist activities to experience bar harbor. The owner was very thoughtful. I cannot say enough about how fantastic this place is.
Though we had a issue at the start, the owner and area manager were right on the spot and fixed it asap. They were very understanding and made it right.
The rest of our 4 night stay was perfect. The location is outstanding, comfortable, amazing views. Quiet. Just a excellent time.
They provide a lot of things for you and we will be looking forward to going back again.
Beautiful setting, well appointed, comfortable bed! Everything one would need for a relaxing vacation.
So glad you enjoyed your stay!
