About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-5)

Paul's Cottage is the year-round home where my father-in-law spent his retirement years. Built to resemble a New England barn, the spacious pine-paneled living room features a cathedral ceiling and a granite fireplace that is likely the largest you have ever seen!

There is a bedroom with queen size bed and full bath on the first floor. Over the kitchen and bedroom is a loft area with a full bath and two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed, the other with a small twin and sitting area with skylight. You will absolutely love the new dormer in the upstairs bedroom especially when you are able to look out on to Blue Hill Bay and enjoy the stars and the moon traveling across the clear dark sky. (Due to the relatively small size of the loft bedrooms we limit the total number of guests to five, no exceptions, please.)

Our newly renovated kitchen is well equipped for cooking and serving, with amenities including gas cook top & oven, microwave, coffeemaker, dishwasher and breakfast table.

Mealtime is always more enjoyable with a view of the water. You can sit in front of the window in the dining area or simply go outside to use the picnic table on the deck. In the corner of the living room next to a window with a waterfront view, the landlady insisted on having a game table because she loves to play scrabble, bridge or canasta. Yes, it is a great place to use your computer and we do offer wireless internet connection for those who insist on making contact with the outside world. However, we suggest that you just sit and relax in the large wicker chairs in the living room............relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. Perhaps the best thing to do after all is just step through the large sliding glass doors onto a 400 square foot deck and enjoy the panoramic view of Blue Hill Bay.

We are located between Mitchell and Duck Cove on the western side of Mount Desert Island, so you will find that the spectacular sunsets probably will take your breath away.

As one of my tenants said the minute he got out of the car, 'I think that you have a little bit of heaven here'. I do believe that he is correct. I have to say I do leave a little bit of my heart behind every time I leave Mount Desert Island.

So come and experience the peace and quiet of your home away from home and leave your cares behind.

5) We do limit the number of people to five, including small children, no exceptions, please.
