Why Margo Stanley chose Acadia National Park
This cottage is all wood, no smelly carpets, is located right at the water's edge on Mill Creek off Bass Harbor and is only 3 miles to down town Southwest Harbor and 20 minutes to down town Bar Harbor. Entrances to Acadia are all around us.
What makes this cottage unique
Sitting in the swing at the water's edge with morning coffee and again at the end of the day is a peaceful start and ending to every day..
