The cottage on the coast was a lovely place for our family of 4. An open floor plan that seems to be larger than it really is because of the slider/door onto the deck which is easily the same size as the living space inside. The kitchen and bath/shower were more than adequate. There are neighbors close by ...but you really can't tell as the cottage is surrounded by woods and they are very quiet:) Having the high tide 8' from the deck was great and the rocky shoreline made for some interesting beachcombing. This place served as a great base of operations for our many activities - far enough off the tourist track to be relaxing, near enough to get to Bar Harbor and Acadia in 35 minutes (using back roads... 45 using highway). Nearby lobsterman had fresh lobster daily and quite inexpensive ($3.50/lb... or the Winter Harbor Lobster Co-op at $6/lb. We hated to leave - it was a week w/out cell phones, computers, and TV! My two teens w/ a little help from their dad worked on the "Bob the lobster puzzle in the evenings. Bring bug repellent!
