The cottage is part of a three-home property primarily occupied by three generations of family members who take pride in their ownership of this uniquely beautiful place.

The town of Bar Harbor is located on the northeast corner of Mount Desert Island. Southwest Harbor, on the western side of the fjord Somes Sound, is well known for boat-building and fishing, and has the largest year-round population on Mount Desert Island. Northeast Harbor is known for its beautiful private "cottages" yet retains a small town atmosphere. The town of Tremont is home to Bass Harbor Head Light and is located on what locals refer to as the "quiet side" of the island. Cadillac Mountain, named after the French Explorer of the same name who went on to found Detroit, Michigan, is on the eastern side of the island. Its green, lichen-covered, pink granite summit is one of the first places in the United States to see the sunrise, making it a popular tourist attraction. Miles of scenic carriage roads were originally built by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. with great sensitivity to the trees and contours of the land. The mountains of Acadia National Park offer hikers and bicycle riders views of the ocean, island lakes, and pine forests.

Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Pretty Marsh, Maine
Little House Stay
July 18, 2011
From the moment we arrived we fell in love with our cabin and the surroundings. The Little House was everything we had hoped for. Watched lobster and mussel boats in morning and ate breakfast on our deck. hiked and biked in Acadia National Park during the day. Ate lobster most nights and returned to the cabin, listened to the loons, and enjoyed breezes as the windows are big and are screened so it was like having a screened porch. Last day as we were leaving, had a seal right in front of us. What a treat! Only thing bad was having to leave! Wonderful memory for my wife and myself.
"We had a wonderful time here and enjoyed every minute of it, even without a car. Thanks especially for opening up your family home."
Thank you! We hope to see you again!
