Harrington Cottage Rental Photos and Description
OAK POINT COTTAGE - 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)
This cottage is an authentic 1800's renovated cape, sitting on 40 acres at the end of Oak Point. The Oak Point Cottage has been in the current owners' family for more than 100 years. In fact, the family's roots in Harrington date back to the late 1700's.
The cottage sits in a field of wild flowers that stretches to the bay. The property features fragrant woodlands, sprawling wildflower meadows and a pink granite shoreline. Surrounded on three sides by water, you can see spectacular sunrises over Flat Bay and sunsets over the Mill River.
The 4-bedrooms and one bath accommodate up to 8 people and is furnished with amenities such as a fully equipped kitchen, satellite TV, DVD, usable fireplace, washer and dryer and phone and features a genuine Queen Atlantic wood stove in the kitchen. Firewood, linens, towels and blankets are included. A gas grill is also available.
When you are not watching the sailboats and lobster boats come and go, you can explore the shoreline, take a walk to the Point and skip some rocks or fly a kite in the meadow, all without leaving the grounds. It has it's own mid-tide boat launch, perfect for floating small sailboats, kayaks, canoes or motor boats.
Oak Point is just 30 minutes from spectacular views and pounding surf at Schoodic Point and an hour's drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.
2013 Update (2.11.13) Work is in progress to complete by May of this year a partial kitchen remodel and the conversion of the former wood shed into a sun porch. The refrigerator will be moved from the dining room into the kitchen and there will be new cabinets, cupboards and counter tops in the kitchen surrounding the stove. These improvements will add a nice place to sit enjoy the scenery and to cook your meals.
