We have been summer residents of this area since the 1960's and 70's and recently retired here year round after 31 years of teaching in a private school in Massachusetts.

Jennie or Andy Cline purchased this cottage in 1998

This cottage was originally built in the mid 1950's as an extension to the main house, which sits nearby, providing much needed extra bedrooms. In 1997 we renovated the building, turning one of the bedrooms into a passage way which opens into a generous family living space with kitchen/dining/living area. The house now has it's own private driveway and entrance off Shore Road.

This cozy cottage is located on the quiet, but very scenic Shore Road. Walk out the driveway and turn left for a spectacular 2 mile walk 'around the block.' The walk will take you through 2 working boatyards, past the town dock and ferries to the outer islands, bus stops for the free seasonal island bus service, two boat rental businesses and past some spectacular views of Somes Sound.

Perfect location to enjoy the peace and beauty of Acadia National Park

  • 5 of 5
To start: in reviewing the photos there have been some positive changes. There is now a nice flat screen TV in the living room with cable and on demand channels. My son was happy to be able to watch is favorite kid shows. The washer and dryer are now side by side full size machines. It was great to be able to do laundry during our stay.

Now the review: the 4 of us from California (my husband and I, our 5 year old son and my 83 year old mom) spent a glorious week at the quaint spruce cottage. The place was completely well stocked and met all our needs. We cooked most of our meals and had ample pots, pans dishes....everything you need. Everyone agreed that the beds were very comfortable and we all slept great after our daily adventures. The cottage is well stocked with books, games, and puzzles.

The location is perfect; away from the crowds at Bar Harbor but close enough so you can visit or take the Island Explorer bus for free. The stop is less than a 5 minute walk from the cottage. The cottage is also close to Echo Lake beach where we enjoyed swimming and sand castle building. The beach had great changing rooms and lifeguards on duty. We also went canoeing at Long Pond, a short drive from the cottage. We made use of the folding patio chairs and took them to the beach with us.

The grounds of the cottage are lovely with a pond and lovely flowers. We saw deer near the pond and heard frogs at night. My husband used the gas grill to cook many meals. He was happy to find all he needed to BBQ.

We got lots of great ideas from Andy and Jennie's suggestion binder and really enjoyed our nature tour on Island cruises, Lobster at Thurston's, and afternoon tea at Jordan Pond.

A good time was had by all and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring the East coast and came away recharged and refreshed. I highly recommend. You would be hard pressed to find a better place.

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My wife, our daughter, and myself enjoyed a wonderful week here in Manset. The cottage is quiet, clean, and exceptional. The pictures do not do the cottage justice, it is even more beautiful in person. The grounds are wonderful and the setting is idealistic. The cottage is in the heart of Acadia National Park, it is a great location. There are many wonderful amenities - we will be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Jim and Michelle, for your review. We enjoyed having you and will continue to work on improving our pictures. Things are winding down and the beautiful fall colors will soon be gone. Hoping you all will return some day soon.

Even with very poor weather conditions I still had a wonderful time in my quaint, comfy cottage. Everything you could need or want was there for you. The quiet, peaceful setting and comfortable, cozy cottage is all you need and is only complemented by the beautiful Maine coastline and community. Would highly recommend!
