Description of the Bar Harbor vacation cottage rental
This is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful locations on Mount Desert Island. Located in the town of Bar Harbor, on protected Western Bay, our cottage sits so close to the ocean that water laps against the deck at high tide. The property is immediately adjacent to the Blagden Indian Point Preserve. Many visitors come to the Preserve to see the harbor seals basking in the sun at low tide. The best view of the seals is from our deck. With over a thousand feet of shoreline, we have a beach for convenient kayak access as well as picturesque rocky ledges. Private tennis court is located on the property. Located minutes away from Acadia National Park.

Please do not bring jet-skis or other motorized water-craft. The low-tide resting area for the protected harbor seals is VERY close, and these types of vehicles will disturb them.

Area Information
The Blagden Preserve: The Cottage at Indian Point has over a thousand feet of shoreline, including two beaches as well as traditional Maine shoreline ledges. But if that's not enough, the Cottage is also immediately adjacent to the Blagden Preserve, which is part of the Nature Conservancy. This means that visitors to the Cottage have access to more than 1000 additional feet of shoreline, plus the miles of maintained walking/running trails on the Blagden Preserve. The forests of the Preserve include red spruce, northern white cedar, balsam fir, red oak, red maple and tamarak. Wildlife at the Cottage and on the Preserve include harbor seals, white-tailed deer, porcupines, ruby-crowned kinglets, osprey, loons, 6 woodpecker species, and as many as 12 species of warblers.

Sports at the Cottage at Indian Point: Guests at the Cottage enjoy many athletic opportunities, such as kayaking, swimming (the bay becomes warm enough for swimming on particulary hot days of July and August). For tennis enthusiasts, there is a private tennis court (asphalt surface) on the property. A basketball standard is also available on the tennis court. Runners will enjoy the trails of the Blagden Preserve, as well as the low-traffic country roads on the western side of Mount Desert Island. Biking is also a popular activity (Bicycles not provided).

Acadia National Park: Everett Cottage at Indian Point is only a few miles away from the Pretty Marsh picnic area, which is in the western portion of Acadia National Park. The more well-known parts of Acadia, like Sand Beach, Cadillac Mountain, and Thunder Hole, are approximately 12 miles away in the eastern part of the park.
