This charming 500 sq. ft. cottage is all about location and comfort. In addition to modern amenities and all the comforts of home, you will be able to walk out the door and hike on any number of hiking trails in Acadia National Park with South Ridge Trail to the summit of Cadillac Mt. right across the street. A quick walk will take you to Ocean Drive where you can sit with coffee and watch the sunrise or bike the entire loop around Park Loop Road. All of the carriage roads and beaches are just a short distance with a free shuttle bus that will pick you and your bike up at the end of the driveway. If you want nightlife, Bar Harbor is only 4 miles away with all the shopping, restaurants, and bars. The local convenience store is less than .25 mi. down the road where you can also have a traditional lobster bake. The finest restaurant on all of Mount Desert Island, The Burning Tree, is also just .25 mi. down the road from the cottage. We're sure you will love your stay at the Cottage

Best vacation we've ever had!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to plan a trip to explore Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park for a full week. Mike and Sheridy's cottage was the perfect choice for where to stay! It was affordable, nearby to all the local attractions, yet just enough outside of the crowded tourist area of downtown Bar Harbor. We had the best of everything....a quiet getaway, but near to all the sights!

Some of our favorite memories included Cadillac Mountain at sunrise, star gazing and seeing the Milky Way, collecting sea glass at Sand Beach, Thunder Hole at high tide, and hiking the loop around Jordan Pond.

Mike and Sheridy were very attentive and available any time we had questions or concerns. Their cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed after returning from a day of exploring. Highly recommended and we hope to return again soon!

Great access to the Park

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay that is 5-10mins away from multiple entrances to the park as well as the town of Bar Harbor. Otter Creek allowed us enter and exit the park without being committed to driving the entire one-way park loop road each time, as well as get into and out of Bar Harbor with relative ease. Given the construction and lane closures on the North end of the island, this place was the perfect location to stay during our trip. Sheridy was quick to respond to all our questions and provided excellent instructions for our arrival and departure. The cottage was well laid out and included all the amenities we required. While there was some noise coming from the nearby road, we did not find it disturbing and it settled down significantly after about 8-9pm. We want to thank Mike and Sheridy for the use of their cottage and excellent service throughout and hope to visit Mt. Desert Island again soon!

Cozy Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week's stay at Sheridy's cottage and it was the perfect getaway. The location is just a few miles out of Bar Harbor but very convenient to in-town restaurants and shops as well as Acadia hiking trails. The cottage is modestly furnished but fulfills most every need. The washer/dryer alone is worth Five Stars! We especially enjoyed building a fire every night in the backyard fire pit and taking a 15 minute walk to the most beautiful ocean view at Acadia in the mornings.

Great Place for a Couple's Get Away

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was small but well laid out and comfortable. It came well equipped with pretty much everything you might need. It's not fancy, but was clean, neat and mostly up-to-date. We did have some frustrations with the washing machine - but maybe it was because I didn't understand the controls. The bed was comfortable...but the mattress made some strange sounds. Since my husband and I were there to enjoy the great outdoors (there was a lot of hiking and biking for all levels) we spent almost no time there and didn't cook because we were enjoying the great local restaurants! There are a lot to choose from. The weather was perfect so we were out and about as much as possible. The location was convenient to Bar Harbor without being disturbed by a lot of traffic and we were able to get to almost anywhere on the island within a few minutes. We would recommend it to others who plan to visit Acadia and Bar Harbor.

In the heart of Acadia

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautiful week on the island and enjoyed staying at the cottage immensely! The place was the perfect size for us two and our dog, Finn. The bed was comfortable, bedroom ceiling fan a plus, and the cottage is very quiet inside. The location was closer to the road than optimal, but we found that the incredible convenience of the place - near Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, trails, and the Jordon Pond park entrance - more than made up for it. After spending our days hiking, biking, and exploring outside, the cottage was a peaceful respite!

Mike and Sheridy are extremely welcoming and responsive owners. We were contacted shortly after arriving to see when it would be convenient to stop in and attach the dishwasher - mentioned in a prior review. In this age of social media, it is sometimes easier to say nothing and write more harshly. In fact, when the 2 yo flat screen tv in the living room unexpectedly died, they insisted on giving us their own. This is a lovely family, present and more than happy to help make your stay comfortable.
