We are a family of engineers, healthcare, and marketing/media professionals. The cottage was a joy to build and furnish. We are meticulous about how it is kept. We the senior Cotters are recently retired and able to enjoy more time in this special area. One of my favorite things to do on the property is to read a book in the hammock out on the point where at certain times of the day I can become distracted with wild life in and over the pond. The 600 feet of waterline is in view from this point. We want to share this experience with others who value the cottage and its surroundings.
Our property gives us the best of both world's of Maine - the quiet pond and big mixed evergreen woods with the bonus of salt water and Acadia National Park on MDI and Schoodic a short distance away . We constantly enjoy the diversity of our location.
Although we are down a camp road and seem away from it all, there is a convenient store next to the camp road entrance on the main road. We enjoy great blue berry pancake breakfast there. We can also buy milk, bread, newspaper, lunch, suppers and Friday night pizza. We can walk up with our kids for ice cream. We also use our camp roads for exercise. It is a good start for the day.
Other Activities: canoe, kayak, swim, fish on the pond, walk the camp roads to find much flora. Pottery, art galleries, wineries, unique shops nearby. Climb Schoodic Mountain (gorgeous view at top) and Tunk Mountain (secret lakes along trails). 25 minutes to MDI with Acadia and Bar Harbor; Acadia at Schoodic in good proximity.
