BAR HARBOR COTTAGE, YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME ON MOUNT DESERT ISLAND

Acadia National Park Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 7, 1800 Sq Ft, Cathedral Ceiling

Home situated on 1 acre private lot. Entrance of drive has view of Cadillac Mountain. Cottage is not located in the middle of the chaotic activities but close enough so that you could be there very quickly. Very welcoming and comfortable. Whether you prefer to dine or lounge on the large wrap-around deck or pick blue berries in the field (in season) you will be very content. Large lawn for children to play or to throw a ball for your pet to retrieve. The flower gardens are beautiful and attract a large variety of birds. The cottage was built in 1983, this year has been completely renovated. The open floor plan invites family time and conversation. High speed, wireless internet is available for those who need to check in at work or inquire about local activities. 1 mile from the home is the welcome center where you can catch a free bus which goes all around the island.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • pets considered

We are a working class couple with our children grown and on their own.

Selena Norwood purchased this cottage in 1983

We designed and built the house when we were first starting out. This is the only home my children knew until they went off to college. We still live in the house in the winter but live in a travel trailer on the pond during the summer. The house, garden and yard are just to enjoyable for it not to be used during our best months of the year! That's why we decided to rent.

A TOTAL DREAM VACATION :)

  • 5 of 5
I truly cannot speak highly enough of this beautiful home. This rental experience was one instance where I felt that the real thing was even better than the photos! The owner of the home was incredibly helpful and quick with her responses to me (all via email), and she left the house absolutely immaculate. There are enough sheets, towels, books and board games for an army! I would recommend this cottage to anyone who wanted to vacation in Bar Harbor/Acadia and avoid the overwhelming crowds. We were, remarkably, able to satisfy our dog (who was free to roam on the spacious, fenced in deck) and we also enjoyed cooking breakfast and having coffee in the open, fully stocked kitchen (kitchens in Brooklyn are...let's say...not so spacious). The inside of the house is beautifully decorated and felt so cozy, and when you are hanging out on the deck you can't even tell that there are neighbors! This is the perfect rental for you if you are looking for a relaxing, secluded getaway in a beautiful home that almost feels like your own. Five stars!!!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 4 of 5
The house exceeded our expectations. It was clean with all the amenities you could want. We were a group of 5 adults and 3 children and there was room for all. The owners were prompt with their communications and even sent us a packet with things to do in the area. Our children loved the yard and board games, my husband loved sitting on the deck and I loved the kitchen and the hassle free vacation. Bar Harbor was great and Acadia was gorgeous! I can't wait to come back.

Owner's Response: In the years that we have been renting our guests have been very respectful of our cottage and the property. We try to have the little extras in the house that make it a home. The kitchen is stocked with spices which makes having that home made meal a bit easier on our guests. W e have found that our guests are very appreciative of the little extras that we provide. The rental experience has been as pleasant for us as it has been for our guests!
