The main floor has two master bedrooms complete with walk-in closets, full private baths, queen beds and sliders that open on to the wrap around deck. We have a small bedroom with a double bed across from the main bathroom. There is a large foyer, open floor plan with kitchen, dining room, and living room. Beautiful cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors and granite fireplace.

The loft is complete with two twin beds and a cozy, tranquil space perfect for reading or relaxing, overlooking the living room and bay. (This can be changed into a king size bed with advance notice)

Walk from our deck to the shore exploring the beach or

spend your days exploring Maine's coastal towns or visit Mount Desert Island with its many villages and Acadia National Park. Opportunities are endless, including whale watch trips, boat rentals, fishing, swimming, kayaking, shopping, tennis, or make use of the many hiking trails.

Ellsworth is only ten minutes away, where you will find a variety of shops and stores. Trenton Market Place is nearby for all your grocery store needs. Our cottage is the perfect center point to begin your exploring regardless of your destination. (We are approximately 40-50 minutes away from Bangor, Blue Hill, Bucksport, Milbridge, or Cherryfield.)

If you need a break from the daily site seeing, cook your own lobster on the deck with our outside steamer, or enjoy steaks and burgers on the grill. These options let you enjoy your vacation to the fullest. Lobsters and fresh seafood are close by and maybe some special surprises too!

This delightful coastal community offers many dining opportunities as well. We keep menus on hand to show the local 'hot spots.'

About Wanda Pinkham

Bill is a small business owner and has always shown an interest in Maine's beautiful waterfront properties. We thought building rental cottages would not only be a good investment but they would allow us to enjoy them as well.

We have built two cottages since 2004 and have met wonderful people from all over. This is a great way to invest but also enjoy along the way.

Wanda Pinkham purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Wanda Pinkham chose Trenton

Bill and I love the ocean and this property was the perfect location for our second rental cottage. It has a great view of Western Bay and Acadia Mountains. There is a lot of wildlife in this area and we enjoy watching the seagulls, ducks, deer and the chipmunks as they visit on occasion.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bill & Wanda,

Thank you so much for sharing your amazing cottage with us! We had a blast between hiking, kayaking, shopping and a ferry tour at Bar Harbor, we were always busy. Maine is such a beautiful state and your cottage definitely made our experience here in Maine even better! And the seafood here is wonderful! We couldn't have asked for more. Thanks again Wanda & Bill, it truly is a beautiful home!

Perfect location, perfect house, perfect setting!

  • 5 of 5

Listing for this property was accurate. Property was clean and well-maintained. Super customer service by Wanda (thank you for the amazing blueberry muffins too!) Definitely would recommend to friends and relatives. Enjoyed glider plane ride (flew over the cottage!) with Acadia Air Tours, good breakfast at Jordan's Restaurant (wild blueberry jelly) and Jeannie's Great Maine Breakfast (strawberry rhubarb jelly) both in Bar Harbor, nearby Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound has excellent lobster, sunrise on Cadillac Mountain - chilly, but a must do once, fun hike around Jordan Pond, Thunder Hole was breathtaking, Acadia Schoodic Peninsula views worth the drive, The Pickled Wrinkle in Birch Harbor (pickled wrinkles were not in season, but still worth a visit while you're over at Schoodic Peninsula), Somes Sound Tour (lighthouses and more) with Bar Harbor Whale Watch Co, enjoyed walk across to Bar Island (at low tide, of course :) , Bass Harbor Lighthouse (recommend Sips for great breakfast and flourless chocolate cake :), brought back selection of desserts from Sugar Bakery to enjoy in the evenings - all delicious!

Our group enjoyed many hours at the Cottage exploring the beach, sitting on the deck, and playing Dominoes and Farkle (dice game :) around the dining room table with the beautiful view of Western Bay in the background.

Exceptional Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the great pleasure of staying at Goose Cove Cottage from August 27- Sept 3 2017. It was in a perfect location for us to easily access all of our excursions. The cottage itself was extremely clean and well stocked with anything we could possibly imagine needing. The view from the deck was amazing and we all seemed to gravitate there often. There is so much to do and see in Acadia and the Bar Harbor region that we will surely be back and we wouldn't want to stay in any other place. Thank you Wanda!

A wonderful home base

  • 5 of 5

We hiked and kayaked and ate popovers and played mini-golf and bought ice cream and ate lobster. Always, in the back of our minds, we knew there was a wonderful home with gorgeous views waiting for us at the end of each excursion. When you leave the mountains and water of Acadia National Park after a busy morning, it is so reassuring, so comforting, so satisfying to know that you are returning to the mountain views and the water of Goose Cove. Our week was peaceful and fun, relaxing and memorable, in part because of our time in the Park and in part because of our time in this house. Many thanks.
