Property description

Bring your family and friends to experience the wonders of nature from this idyllic shorefront compound with 2 cottages, (total bedrooms: five bedrooms + loft) where five generations of kin have gathered to enjoy Mt. Desert Island from its lovely western bay. With Squid Cove on one side and Goose Marsh Pond on the other, this secluded 42-acre retreat with two separate cabins is sure to provide for a summer vacation not soon forgotten. From Camp Ouloncuit, watch the osprey fish, the bald eagles soar, and the seals soak up the sun. At low tide, discover the starfish, mussels and sea urchins. And for the more adventurous, run the tidal rapids in your canoe or kayak, or journey further to the bay at the end of Squid Cove. Whether exploring nature, relaxing in a hammock, or just comfortably sitting on the front porch taking in the view, Camp Ouloncuit provides many ways to unwind and recharge.


Original cabin: Camp Ouloncuit’s original rustic cottage, built in 1924, features an open living and dining area with a large stone hearth and fireplace. Many of the comfortable daybeds and built-in sofa benches were crafted from local timber by the original owner. The modernized kitchen with built-in table for up to six and adjacent pantry retain rustic charm, yet still offer a full set of appliances, including microwave and dishwasher. Master bedroom with king bed and stone hearth and fireplace enjoy the sounds of nearby rapids as well as a private full bathroom with double vanity and combined tub and shower. Two attached bunk rooms with two separate bathrooms and shared shower/tub room can accommodate up to seven people with one queen-sized bed and 5 twin-sized lower bunks. These bunk rooms are accessed through a covered porch walkway from the main cabin.

New cabin: built in 2000, Camp Ouloncuit’s newer cottage was recently featured in Yankee Magazine. The new cabin retains the spirit of the original cabin, built with local pine and spruce building materials, but adds modern comforts like radiant floor heating. The open living and dining area offers a farmhouse-style dining table for 8 to 10, a large stone hearth and fireplace, and additional daybeds and sofa benches. The galley-style kitchen combines the rustic charm of country shelving with the modern appeal of granite counters and stainless steel appliances. The master bedroom with king bed enjoys a large private bathroom with double vanity and walk-in shower. Bedroom with rolling twin beds can be combined to make another king bed. Loft bedroom with two single beds is accessed via an open staircase from the living area. Shared full bathroom with combined tub and shower.

Porch/deck: both the original and new cabins offer two separate decks with furnishings so that one can enjoy a view of either Goose Marsh Pond or Squid Cove -- take your pick! In addition to the large rolling Weber grill, the front deck at the new cabin offers a built-in fireplace for barbecuing.

Appliances: each cabin offers standard kitchen appliances including gas stove, microwave and dishwasher, as well as clothes washer and dryer. TV with DVD player, no network or cable service.

Extras: private dock.

We rent both houses together during the high season; new house only (max. 6 people), Labor Day-mid-November. Please inquire for single house rates.
