Description of the Acadia vacation cottage rental
Unwind in cozy and serene surroundings while enjoying numerous creature comforts. A newly renovated and beautifully decorated cape loaded with amenities. Tucked away on a tranquil wooded lot, yet a short distance to any desired location both on and off Mt Desert Island. Choose from an abundance of exciting, exhilarating, and entertaining activities during the day. Then later, relax and rejuvenate in peace and quiet. Watch a movie on a 50 inch plasma TV, read a book, play a game, surf the net, or sit on the private deck and chat with a cold drink in hand.

The cottage has 3 bedrooms, one first floor bedroom with a king size bed, the master bedroom on the second floor with a king, and the second floor guest room with a queen. There are two full bathrooms, one on each floor. All bedrooms are equipped with LCD televisions and DVD players. The cottage comfortably accommodates 6 occupants, though additional bedding can be provided for 2 more(extra fee may apply).

The living room is set up with a large plasma TV, DVD players, a huge DVD collection, books, board games, video games, and seating for up to 8. Wireless internet access is offered as well.

The new;y renovated kitchen provides everything you will need during your visit. The dining area is conveniently situated between the kitchen and the private deck with its large gas grill. If you would like to dine al fresco, the gazebo has a picnic table and all sides can be enclosed(zippered)with a screen that will keep out uninvited "guests."

No smoking is permitted anywhere on the property and no pets, please.

On the go in Maine/Acadia

This cottage is conveniently located 15-20 minutes from Acadia/Bar Harbor. Easy to get to all the Park hot spots while providing a break from the busy/touristy Bar Harbor. Cottage had eveything we needed - super comfortable beds (!), enough room for 4 adults and 2 kids to have together and alone time, a washer/dryer that was wonderful since we didn't need to pack fresh clothes for our weeks' stay. Thinking about booking again for next year!

Guestbook

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage...The location is perfect for (those) who like to explore and go all over the place. Beside(s) exploring Mt Desert Island, we got to see Schoodic Peninsula and Blue Hill, too.

T.D. from West Haven, CT

Your home is amazing - far beyond our expectations!

M.W. from Ithaca, NY

Just a note (to) tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at Goose Cove Cottage. We were delighted with all the amenities. We appreciated all the special touches your decorating provided and were very comfortable after spending the days exploring.

T. & C.K. from Springville, NY

Thank you so much for preparing your home for us with the great directions, gifts, and every amenity you can imagine! We so appreciated being there and it made our vacation very relaxing.

G. & N.A. from Mobile, AL

WHEW!!! What a trip! We just returned home.I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank-you again for your hospitality in sharing your home with my family. We had a great time and the kids are still talking about the Goose Cove Cottage. We look forward to making another trip up in the future and when we do, we will definitely give you a call.

A.L. from Evansville, IN

I just wanted to say thank you again for the use of the cottage. Your home was beautiful. My entire family enjoyed it.

T.M. from Chelmsford, MA

We had a most wonderful time at the Park and especially your cottage. It was very clean and comfortable. We were able to easily access all areas of the island with just a short drive from Goose Cove.

J.A. from West Reading, PA

We had a fabulous trip and really enjoyed staying at the cottage. It was even better than we expected and the furnishings, accessories, etc. were outstanding. We will definitely recommend the cottage to our friends and we hope that we will be able to make a repeat visit soon.

J.H. from Miami, FL

Our primary concern was that the cottage was close to as good as it looked online. We found that our concerns were uncalled for. I cannot imagine a more pleasant home-away-from home. We would definitely want to stay there again if in the area. We would also give recommendations to anyone we hear (are) going to the Bar Harbor area to choose your cottage. It was mentioned by all that the comfort of all of the furniture, quality of all the appliances and just the secure home-like feeling was restful after a day of sightseeing. All I can say is THANKS for helping make this such a great vacation for (us).

L.Z. from Connersville, IN

You would hear this a lot from quests, but I really must say how thankful we are to have had your wonderful (cottage) for our vacation. It is a fantastic place for a family.

M.B. from Wellesley, MA

Thanks for your place. It was wonderful. Just perfect for me and my family. It really hit the spot overall--we really unwound and found time for Bar Harbor, the west side of the island, Ellsworth, the lumber jack show, golf, kayaking, whale watching, hiking in the park. We loved it and hope to return again in the future. Thanks again for making it possible.

FS from Glen Rock, NJ

Thanks again for providing my party with such a lovely lodging place. (We) had a great time during the trip. We want to go back later. We will recommend the Goose Cove Cottage to our friends and colleagues.

JL from Boston, MA

June, the stay was great. We plan to stay there again in (the) future and recommend your cottage to friends.

GV from Jersey City, NJ

We just returned from our vacation to Maine a few days ago and wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed Goose Cove Cottage! It was even more than we expected. I don't think I told you before the trip: my parents' favorite vacation spot has always been Maine, but because of their age, they haven't been back to Acadia National Park for over 10 years; so we put together this family trip so my folks could return there, and the cottage turned out to be the perfect spot for us. Thank you!

JM from Highlands Ranch, CO

Now that we are back in Texas and into the old routine, I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the cottage. It is beautiful. Thanks so much for giving us the opportunity to spend most of our vacation there.

AM from Sugar Land, TX

Wow - what a lovely home! We had a great time - thank you so much. Everyone commented on the comfortable beds, lovely bedding, beautiful kitchen, and of course we loved the videos and big TV! The house was perfect for us all--we'd love to have stayed longer.

DR from Moncton, NB

Just wanted to thank you again for everything, this was a wonderful vacation for us and we loved the house.

  • About:

    Acadia and the Down East region of Maine are my family's roots. I love returning on a regular basis to get my "fix" of the spectacular ocean and island scenery. My stays at the cottage are always quiet, relaxing, and refreshing- - even in the midst of the busy season. It has also been an opportunity...
