THE COMMAND POST: BEAUTIFUL OCEAN AND MOUNTAIN VIEWS.

Hall Quarry Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 full size bath, king size bed, sleep sofa in living room, sleeps 3

Nestled on the rocky shore, Command Post holds sway over all boats coming and going on Somes Sound and, is situated amongst historic and once vibrant rock quarries. Relax on the deck after a day of whale watching and listen to the frogs serenade you. Enjoy the gorgeous views of the mountains meeting the sea, and watch boats at work and at play. Golf at any one of three courses located on the Island. Enjoy sailing, swimming and fishing in either the ocean or fresh water lakes close by. In season you can pick blueberries on the grounds for your enjoyment. The Command Post provides a secluded getaway that is centrally located to any of the attractions of Mount Desert Island: Echo Lake, Acadia Mountain, Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Bar Harbor, Cadillac Mountain, and the Carriage Roads and Hiking Trails of Acadia National Park. Your “relaxing” time can be as busy as you choose to make it or as peaceful and serene as the natural setting that is the Command Post!

Suitability:
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

WHAT A FANTASTIC PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
We had an great time on MDI and in Acadia NP - despite the Government shutdown - Command Post was the perfect place to stay and the view of Somes Sound is spectacular. The house is small and mostly suited to two people. It is well designed and very well constructed. I don't think I'd feel a draft, even in the middle of winter. The views of the Sound and the surrounding property were highlighted by the large windows in the bedroom and living room, as well as the sliding glass doors in the living room. The house was very clean and well appointed with everything we could possibly have needed for our stay. There are neighbors, but their houses are a good distance away and seen just through the trees, so peace and quiet are virtually guaranteed. For a vacation house, it had everything we could ever have needed and lots of things we didn't even know we needed. The owners are very friendly and take wonderful care of the property. I'd definitely recommend the place to friends.

WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The Command Post was even more wonderful than expected! We loved the location and the beautiful view. We were so happy to be able to bring our dog with us. Mimi and Rick were extremely helpful with any questions we had. It was very quiet and peaceful but close to Bar Harbor. We enjoyed exploring the nearby towns. We visited Acadia everyday. We hated to leave and will recommend this property to all our friends!

We spent two weeks at the Command Post in June 2011 and it was awesome! Rick, Mimi and Sharon are warm and welcoming as is the Command Post. The location is spectacular and the views make time at the cottage well spent! We loved our stay and we will definitely go back.

Map

Car: recommended

Located in the center of Mount Desert Island, we are just minutes away from all attractions. With Somes Sound within walking distance, you can enjoy the beautiful sights and water activities such as boating and fishing, and if you are really adventurous, a breath-talking swim in the ocean. Should you not like cold salt water swimming, Echo Lake is within 1 mile of the house.

Other Activities: kayaking, canoeing
