Description from owner

Acadia Sunset Seaside Cottage is a 3-bedroom, 3-bath house with private access directly to the shore. With en suite bathrooms and separate dining, living, reading, and game rooms, the cottage is well suited to accommodate multiple generations of family or a small group of friends while preserving your privacy. Acadia Sunset offers you an opportunity to sample Acadia National Park -- and lobster dinners; boating, sailing, canoeing, or kayaking; ocean or freshwater swimming; hiking, walking, or bicycling; blueberry picking, birding, or garden touring; shopping in quaint boutiques, and more -- or to just get some quiet relaxation and reading time in your own cozy cottage on the shore. Enjoy an unparalleled experience with family, friends -- or in cherished solitude.

You can enjoy any of several cozy nooks to settle in with a good book. Or play ping pong on a day at home. You are surrounded by gorgeous sunsets that you can enjoy in your private screened-in porch in the evening. And you are steps away from your own private stretch of beach, where you can put in a canoe or kayak, beachcomb for shells and sea treasures, or simply enjoy the view out to Maine's famous island-dotted shore, with the Nature Conservancy's Placentia Island in the distance, and Swan's Island just beyond in Blue Hill Bay. You are less than five minutes' drive from the Acadia National Park trails of Wonderland and Ship's Harbor, which bring you out to gorgeous rocky bluffs along the open ocean and Maine's famous rocky coast. A minute more and you're at Bass Harbor Head Light, the most photographed lighthouse on the U.S. East Coast. In five minutes you're in Southwest Harbor with ample opportunities for shopping, dining, and boating; in two more minutes you're hiking Acadia Mountain or swimming in Echo Lake; and in ten minutes more you're in Bar Harbor, with its quaint shops, restaurants, whale watching, naturalist boating, sailing, deep-sea diving, Park tours, and many other opportunities.

Few locations in the United States can compare to the beauty and diversity of Mt. Desert Island (MDI) and Acadia National Park, “where the mountains meet the sea.” Come to Acadia Sunset Seaside Cottage for some much-needed rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation!

About the area

Few locations in the United States can compare to the beauty and diversity of Mt. Desert Island (MDI), home to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Acadia Sunset Oceanfront Cottages are detached homes along the oceanfront, facing out to sea on the west side of MDI. MDI itself is easily accessible by bridge – no ferry crossing is required to access this part of Acadia. Green shaded areas on the map are the National Park. You enjoy easy access to the Park and all of its amenities from this location, without having to sleep in the bustle and noise of Bar Harbor itself. Enjoy spectacular sunsets out over the ocean every evening from the luxury and privacy of your own screened-in porch and cozy cottage.

Getting around

A car is necessary to get around. You can ride the free Park shuttle in and around the Park once here.
