Acadia National Park Cottage Rental Photos and Description

- 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 6-8

NEW WIFI! If calling to inquire, also send an e-mail as this is the best way to reach us~

Goose Cove Cottage in Trenton is minutes from Acadia National Park. We are 75 feet from the water's edge and have a beautiful view of Western Bay and Acadia Mountains. Our Cottage is complete with all amenities to make your stay comfortable.

The main floor has two master bedrooms complete with walk-in closets, full private baths, queen beds and sliders that open on to the wrap around deck. We have a small bedroom with a double bed across from the main bathroom. There is a large foyer, open floor plan with kitchen, dining room, and living room. Beautiful cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors and granite fireplace.

The loft is complete with two twin beds and a cozy, tranquil space perfect for reading or relaxing, overlooking the living room and bay. (This can be changed into a king size bed with advance notice)

Walk from our deck to the shore exploring the beach or

spend your days exploring Maine's coastal towns or visit Mount Desert Island with its many villages and Acadia National Park. Opportunities are endless, including whale watch trips, boat rentals, fishing, swimming, kayaking, shopping, tennis, or make use of the many hiking trails.

Ellsworth is only ten minutes away, where you will find a variety of shops and stores. Trenton Market Place is nearby for all your grocery store needs. Our cottage is the perfect center point to begin your exploring regardless of your destination. (We are approximately 40-50 minutes away from Bangor, Blue Hill, Bucksport, Milbridge, or Cherryfield.)

If you need a break from the daily site seeing, cook your own lobster on the deck with our outside steamer, or enjoy steaks and burgers on the grill. These options let you enjoy your vacation to the fullest. Lobsters and fresh seafood are close by and maybe some special surprises too!

This delightful coastal community offers many dining opportunities as well. We keep menus on hand to show the local 'hot spots.'

'Please e-mail me for additional pictures!' Thanks! Wanda and Bill

Guestbook comments from the owner
Bill & Wanda,

Thank you so much for sharing your amazing cottage with us! We had a blast between hiking, kayaking, shopping and a ferry tour at Bar Harbor, we were always busy. Maine is such a beautiful state and your cottage definitely made our experience here in Maine even better! And the seafood here is wonderful! We couldn't have asked for more. Thanks again Wanda & Bill, it truly is a beautiful home!

Bill is a small business owner and has always shown an interest in Maine's beautiful waterfront properties. We thought building rental cottages would not only be a good investment but they would allow us to enjoy them as well.

We have built two cottages since 2004 and have met wonderful people from all over. This is a great way to invest but also enjoy along the way.

Wanda Pinkham purchased this cottage in 2006

Bill and I love the ocean and this property was the perfect location for our second rental cottage. It has a great view of Western Bay and Acadia Mountains. There is a lot of wildlife in this area and we enjoy watching the seagulls, ducks, deer and the chipmunks as they visit on occasion.

Heaven Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
I have never been on vacation at a more hospitable place. In booking Goose Cove Cottage, every question was answered and we arrived to an immaculate cottage. Wanda was very helpful and such a down to earth person who became a friend. She had blueberry muffins waiting, brought us lobsters and helped us find activites to enjoy our stay there. I would highly recommend this home and her other home to anyone looking for a friendly, clean, relaxing place to vacation.

Third time staying in Trenton. This was the nicest

  • 5 of 5
Our third time in Trenton was the charm. Thank you for sharing this beautiful home. Quiet, convenient and spectacular views. The home is more than "advertised". It is obvious that it is well cared for and has all the amenities. Easily accommodated 6 adults. Convenient to Mt Desert Island and Acadia NP and who doesn't like not one but two lobster pounds at the end of the street!

Great location

  • 5 of 5
Goosecove Cottage was as great as it was advertised! We had 2 couples and 1 single adult and the bedrooms and bathrooms worked out perfect. We all had privacy, but lots of space for togetherness. There was more space than we needed. The kitchen was fabulous! The house was very clean, furniture was comfy and it had everything we needed. The slope going down to the beach was a little steep, but I have bad knees and was able to go up and down without much trouble.
The location was very convenient. We spent time in Bar Harbor, Acadia, Ellsworth and Trenton. Lots of good places to eat close by.
We rented a kayak and canoe....enjoyed the cove very much.
The owners were great. They called to check that everything was okay and even left us blueberry muffins for our first morning!
We would stay here again if the occasion arises. We have rented 2 other homes in this area before (one for 16 people). This one was the most convenient location for all the things we like to do.

A Great Way to Start Our Visit to Maine

  • 5 of 5
You really need to just open the front door to understand why we chose Goose Bay Cottage for our first time visit to Maine. Not only is the house great, but the view is spectacular. We spend so many hours out on the lovely deck enjoying every aspect of the day. Wanda was so accommodating and made us feel immediately welcome with blueberry muffins waiting for us on the counter. The home was immaculate and the kitchen very well stocked with all the items you could possibly need for cooking. At the end of the day, we were happy to have the peacefulness of Goose Bay Cottage and to be away from all the activity on Mount Desert Island. The cottage is just close enough to enjoy all the beauty of the Island and all that the park has to offer as well as any other activities one wants to be involved in, but secluded enough to be able to enjoy the peacefulness of the area. We were three couples staying at the cottage and every single one of us couldn’t have been more pleased with the location and the accommodations.

There were 8 of us, and for 2 couples from Missouri experiencing Maine for the very first time, Goose Cove Cottage was the perfect place to stay!! Arriving after dark, we awoke to the most breathtaking views! It was hard to leave the deck to sightsee thru Acadia, but we filled our week with new adventures, and hope to return again to do what we left undone!! Thank you for letting us experience Maine while staying at your amazing cottage!! We loved our stay!!

Beautiful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay with Wanda and Bill, our first was at Blueberry Ledge. We didn't think things could get any better...and then we stayed at Goose Cove! The home is beautifully appointed, and the view was amazing. The location was perfect and very close to any activity we could ask for.
Having two master bedrooms is wonderful, and the family room and deck provided great entertaining. The yard is spacious and we were outside a great deal of the time.
Can't wait to come back!
