Description from owner

Charming summer home tucked into the woods with a large deck that gives a view of the water and Bartlett Island that is available for weekly rentals during the summer (click on Availability tab to see what weeks are available; calendar updated in March for following summer). Very private and within a 5 minute walk to the public landing - Bartlett's Landing. Private (rocky) beach. Perfect for exploring coves in your kayak. Acadia trails, antique shopping, fresh water swimming, Beech Hill Farm farm stand and Somesville all within a 10 minute drive. Sorry, no pets allowed.

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. Please note there is a second rental house nearby on this property which sleeps 3 and may also possibly be rented to accommodate more people: Waterfront Cottage (property number 49272; see link to right). We've been making memories here for over 50 years and invite you to share the experience.

Living room/dining room combination with wood stove. Kitchen, small room off the kitchen with a twin bed and 1/2 bath. Closeted outside shower on the lower deck.

3/4 bath with claw foot tub. Bedroom with a queen bed. Bedroom with 2 twin beds. Bedroom with bunk beds and a single cot.

Beds: 1 Queen Bed, 6 Twin Beds

About the area

Mount Desert Island is famous as the hub of Acadia National Park and as an ideal summer vacation spot. Here is a description from the Wikipedia entry for Acadia National Park: 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.
