Grover Cottage is nestled in the small village of Otter Creek which is surrounded by Acadia National Park, just four miles from Bar Harbor. Grover Cottage was built in 1929 but has been completely restored and updated with well-appointed furnishings, high-end appliances and modern conveniences. This charming house was featured in the March, 2012 issue of Country Living magazine and will comfortably accommodate up to six people. Grover Cottage is within walking distance to the Otter Creek Market, The Burning Tree Restaurant (one of the best restaurants on Mt. Desert Island), and the village playground and within 5 minutes by car to the villages of Seal Harbor and Bar Harbor and the National Park's most popular destinations including Sand Beach, Thunder Hole, Bee Hive and the Park Loop Road. About 1-minute walk from our house, the Park Service has just created a new Acadia National trail head that will lead you into the park. Or about a five-minute walk you can rest on Otter Cove, a small sheltered bay off the ocean. If you prefer to leave your car in our driveway, you can always jump on the free Island Explorer shuttle bus that stops right at the end of our street and take it to Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and other Mt. Desert destinations!
