About the Property
4 cabins on private beach, great for family reunions or corporate retreats.
The Main Cabin has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths and sleeps 7 people. The south end offers 2 en suite bedrooms, each with their own bath. Bedroom 1 has a queen bed with tub bath which connects to bedroom 2 with 2 twin beds and a shower bath, making this ideal for a family with 2 children. The north end offers a bedroom with full size bed plus another bedroom with a twin. Both of these share a bath with claw foot tub. The Main Cabin is also the main gathering place, with a Great Room which includes the dining and living areas plus fireplace and 'games' and music corner. The deck spanning the front of the cabin is a wonderful spot for lunch with built-in seating.
The Binger Cabin, next in the row of cabins, with its own covered porch, has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. One bedroom offers a queen size bed while the other offers a bunk bed with queen on the bottom and twin on top, allowing a family of 5 comfortable sleeping arrangements. The shared tub bath has a kitchenette at one end.
Moving down towards the cove, the Honeymoon Cabin has 1 large bedroom with a king size bed and a tub bath and private sitting area. With its own covered porch, its occupants have their choice of a quiet place to read or listen to the waves.
The Cabin at the Point offers 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, large living room (one half of the cabin) and terrific views onto Mitchell Cove. Each bedroom has a queen size bed; one bath has a tub while the other has a walk-in shower. The living room with windows on three sides and a working fireplace contains a trundle bed for 2 extra guests. The kitchenette allows the option for early morning coffee before joining the rest of the gang in the main cabin kitchen. There is even a roll away cot so 7 can sleep if needed.
In the boathouse you will find the 4 ocean kayaks, available for use at your own risk. A croquet pitch and field for badminton or volleyball await you at the end of a path in the woods.
There is a two car garage with ample parking for the entire group just in front and a varied collection of bikes and helmets in the workshop for use exploring the island at your own risk.
Our camp is at the very end of a mile long private drive so the only 'traffic' is from you.

The best reason for anyone to visit Mt Desert Island is to explore the wonders of Acadia National Park. The park spans both sides of the island, which is nearly split in two by Somes Sound. Our property is located on 'the Quiet Side' as it is known, far away spiritually from the noise and excitement of Bar Harbor, yet easily accessible by car or the very convenient Island Explorer bus system provided by LL Bean free of charge.
Year Purchased: 1930
About the owner: The land was purchased and the property built by my great-grandfather, Walter Lippmann, in the early 1930's. It has remained in the family ever since and continues to be our favorite gathering place every summer. Now the newest generations have begun to enjoy and treasure it. We welcome visitors to come and see why we love it so and look forward to sharing it during the weeks we are not there.
Why the Owner Chose Bernard, Tremont, ME, USA:
The coast of Maine is one the most beautiful places in the world, combining the ocean, the mountains and the forests all in one gorgeous package. Acadia National Park is also one of the most visited and treasured of our National Parks with great hiking trials, biking paths, sailing, kayaking, nature talks and walks. We sit on the edge of the park on the quiet side of the island.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The property covers 30 acres with 3000 feet of shoreline. Four rustic cabins line the rocky private beach. The main cabin with its Great Room serves as the social gathering place where meals are shared, marshmallows are roasted, card games and backgammon battles are fought, while having your own cabin can allow for quiet private time away from the crowds.
