the information listed doesn't do this cottage justice. the cottage is literally a 15 minute walk to the center of town (with a six and twelve year olds mind you, it will probably be faster with just adults), which has a plethora of places to eat and shops to browse through. there isn't much open space around the cottage to run around in or to play wiffle ball games because it's surrounded by trees, but there is a school within a 5 minute walk that has basketball courts, a sizable playground, and a huge field. also, the cottage is conveniently located near two acadia park entrances... one that is about 2 miles down the road (the 233 entrance) and the other is the main entrance with visitor center which is about 10 minutes away (right off route 3).
inside, the cottage was super comfortable (cable tv in every room, if you're into that sort of thing) and easily accommodated a cooking at home feel so we weren't eating out everyday. the decks were very relaxing and allowed for birdwatching without having to leave.
all in all, we can't wait to come back!
