Property description

Our secluded oceanfront cottage is located on Long Cove in Sullivan, Maine, just off the Schoodic National Scenic Byway (coastal US Hwy 1). A quarter-mile unpaved drive leads directly through our 15 forested acres to the water's edge. The 1,100 foot shoreline is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including eagles, ospreys, seals, deer and the occasional red fox. This family retreat has served as a honeymoon cottage as well as a favorite vacation spot for family and friends.

Nestled between two groves of evergreens, the cottage has a wrap-around deck and two large picture windows which allow visitors to relax and enjoy the quiet of the cove. Easily accessible walks along the rocky beach at low tide or following footpaths through the woods are just what the doctor ordered to soothe the stress of a hectic life. The sunsets are exquisite, and on a clear night the sky is so full of stars that it can be a challenge to identify constellations amid the expanse of the Milky Way.

The surrounding area is renowned for hiking, biking, kayaking, antiquing, and visiting superb artists' studios and galleries. Nearby family restaurants that are favorites of the locals offer lobster and other Down East specialties. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are 40 minutes to the southwest, and Winter Harbor and the entrance to Acadia's Schoodic Peninsula are 20 minutes to the northeast. A piece of Sullivan history, the property is part of the Frenchman Bay Conservancy, preserved as-is for future generations to enjoy.

Owner info

About the owner: 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!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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) Moosetrack Studio, www.moosetrackweaving.com (daily, 10am to 6pm, or by appt.) The Gallery at Somes Sound, in Somesville, Mount Desert Island, is noted for fine paintings, sculpture and furniture. In 2016, the year of the 100th anniversary of Acadia National Park, the Gallery is featuring "The Acadia Centennial Collection," from July 9, through October 31. More information is available at this website: http://www.acadiacentennial2016.org/sponsors/the-gallery-at-somes-sound/ . The Gallery website is here: http://galleryatsomessound.com/ .
