Overview

Bar Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, loft,1 bathroom, sleeps six, cathedral ceiling, deck,view, laundry

Get away from it all in this quiet mountaintop cottage with magnificent views and spectacular sunsets across Blue Hill Bay. Completely furnished 2-bedroom /1-bath cottage sleeps six and has an additional spacious loft, full kitchen with all the necessities, cathedral ceilings, deck, view and lovely field stone fireplace. Locked laundry facility steps from the cottage: electric washer and dryer: no extra cost! Only minutes to downtown Bar Harbor and beautiful Eagle Lake. And just outside your door overlook– breathtaking Acadia National Park!

Other conveniences include a laundry room just steps outside the door, weekly cleaning service, and located on a private road with no through traffic. Within walking distance; the Island Explorer shuttle route. We're also pet friendly.Note: The cottage is located on a sloping back yard from the deck which allows for access to the fire pit, blueberry picking, hiking, and incredible, relaxing sunset views.

Sunset Point Cottage: Sunset Point, which enjoys the highest cottage views in Acadia, is a winterized cottage that is comfortable from April through November. There's electric heat in every room, plus a working fireplace. Start the day with a leisurely breakfast with blueberries picked just outside the cottage. Then, after a busy schedule of sightseeing, climbing, biking, sea kayaking, whale watching, or swimming, we recommend a quiet hike to secluded Aunt Betty's Pond followed by a sunset cookout.

In full summer season, as well as in Spring and Fall (May & June/September & October) Bar Harbor and the towns on Mount Desert Island offer a wide variety of experiences -- festivals, art shows, competitions, great food, and more. Eat in at the cottage or go out for family and gourmet dining in Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, and Northeast Harbor.

Driving Directions to Sunset Point: Driving Directions to Sunset Point cottage: available upon receipt of full deposit(see map).

Suggested stop for ME commuter: 'The Governor's' family style restaurant off ME Turnpike: Maine Mall Exit(Portland), is an easy/affordable stop for breakfast or lunch. Bring your appetite.

Acadia National Park: Acadia National park and Mount Desert Island offer such a wide variety of activities for all ages that it is difficult to summarize. We recommend that you visit the park website, the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center in Trenton, or the visitors center in Acadia Park for more details. See also our extra page for suggested activities.

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were lucky enough to stay at Sunset Point for part of our honeymoon. We stayed a week and enjoyed every second. The views and the relaxing ambience were just what we expected. The cottage was very clean and well maintained. We decided to sleep in the living room and not one of the two bedrooms. We wanted to take full advantage of the fireplace and views of the mountain (very romantic setting).The drive to downtown was quick and the beautiful scenes of nearby hikes, bike rides and canoe trips were just a few minutes away. We took advantage of the fresh lobster delivery offered and had our very first taste of fresh Maine lobster in the comforts of the cottage(reasonably priced). Terri and Joe were great with everything. We truly had a great time. One thing to watch out for when driving to the cottage for the first time is to remember to drive all the way to the top of the mt. The first cottage on the left is not sunset pt. (woops) We can't wait to go back and enjoy more of sunset point cottage! Make sure to take advantage of the books in the cottage showing all the activities available. We really enjoyed the nearby hikes. Thanks again Terri and Joe!

Great Location/Great Owner Correspondence

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 3 children and I just loved Sunset Point. The cottage was a perfect spot for visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia; ans was just minutes away from everything. Dealing with Terri, the owner, was a pleasure. The cottage had everything you needed, including a lobster pot which came in handy, and a griddle and pancake mix for making blueberry pancakes (which you could find right in your front yard)! We even had an opportunity to use the fireplace one chilly evening, which our children thoroughly enjoyed. As for a return trip, I would definitely consider. Thanks again Terri!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
This was a great place to stay! The location was perfect, close to Bar Harbor and any place on the Mt. Desert Island was no more than 25 minutes away. My children enjoyed picking blueberries just outside the door and I enjoyed the quiet. Would definitely rent this place again! There was alot of good information avaible in the cabin to plan a perfect week of activities.

The only negative opinion was the cleaning service, they did a horrible job prior to our arrival and I found myself washing the bathroom floor and sink myself.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5
We were unbelievably lucky with the weather. Past the cold, rainy spell and before the hot, humid one. Location of the cabin is great, close to everything, kind of central location, yet very private and remote. Sunsets were beautiful, just had to move further off the deck, due to overgrown trees. Cabin had everything we needed. We truly enjoyed ourselves.

quiet and relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect quiet and contemplative getaway spot. Close to hiking trails and the park, it provided a perfect respite from the bustle of the main towns on the Island, while being close enough to several for entertainment when desired. Lovely sunsets and quiet mornings, comfortable rooms and homey atmosphere.

June vacation

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at sunset cottage. It was quiet and relaxing...a great get away for our family. It was a bit smaller than we anticipated (especially the loft area) but my daughters adjusted and we had a great time. ...could use some more seating in the living room area.
