WATERFRONT COTTAGE @ BLUE HILL BAY/QUIETSIDE MT. DESERT ISLAND/ACADIA NAT'L PAR

West Tremont Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4) directly on shores of Blue Hill Bay

Pinelodge Cottage is a waterfront cottage with two bedrooms, living room/dining area, full kitchen and full bath. One bedroom has a double bed while the other has two twins. Step through the sliding glass doors in living room on to a large deck with comfortable seating and a spectacular view of Blue Hill Bay.

We own seven acres of land and 500 feet of bold granite and stone beach shoreline with a southwesterly exposure on Blue Hill Bay. Our location is private, decidedly un-commercial, and yet convenient to the facilities of the surrounding towns including Bar Harbor. While we enjoy living in the relative quiet of the western side of Mt. Desert, the amenities of Acadia National Park are nearly at our back door. You will find our rates competitive and the setting incomparable.

Come relax and enjoy the quiet with us.

GENERAL INFORMATION:

1) We rent Pinelodge Cottage by the week, Saturday to Saturday.

2) A deposit is required within 7 days to hold your reservation. Refund of deposits can only be made if we are successful in re-renting the entire period. The balance including Maine State Sales Tax will be due upon arrival.

3) We enjoy pets enormously, but have found that pets are frequently unhappy in unfamiliar surroundings. We do have returning tenants who have allergies too. We regrettably have concluded that we can not accommodate any pets.

4) Our housekeeping cottage is now smoke-free. Smoking is not permitted inside at any time.

5) We do limit the number of people to four, including infants, no exceptions, please

We enjoy living here in the coastal village of West Tremont on the 'quiet side' of Mount Desert Island/Acadia National Park. The park is close by and the sunsets will probably take your breath away.

EXACTLY WHAT WE EXPECTED! A+++++

  • 5 of 5
When the description states this is "Ocean Front"...that is so true, 30 feet from the deck, the "yard" drops off down the rocky coast to the Ocean! To wake up to this view everyday took our breath away. This cabin is stocked with necessities. And if you want them, your linens can be included, too. We used the heater everyday, and loved the gas stove in the living room in the evenings while reading and relaxing. Having Wi-Fi available was a plus, because the only service available on this point is AT&T. You have to drive up to Southwest Harbor, about 15 minutes, to get Verizon or other services. The Kitchen has what you need to create a nice dinner, and set a pretty table. The coffee maker makes it easy to rise in the morning and just look out over the ocean while having that first cup! We were just minutes away from everything, but loved coming back to our cozy quarters in the evenings. The owners are very kind, and straight-forward.
I am disabled, and use a rollator/walker, and sometimes a wheelchair. I loved the easy entry ... only 2 steps to get into the cabin. The parking is on gravel by the island side deck. The deck has the two steps up from the gravel to the entry height. The deck also hosts a grill and Charcoal bricks for cooking. We did eat a few meals in, mostly breakfasts. We loved tasting the local cuisine, and the price for lobster, crab and seafood made eating out so possible!
Cleaning before we left was easy, because all the materials needed were supplied. We will treasure these memories of our week vacation on Mount Desert Island forever. This cabin has 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed (very comfy) and the other with two twin beds... also comfy. Dressers and closets are available for your use during your stay. While there is no laundry facilities, there is a folding drying rack, so some hand laundry can be done and left to dry. Gott's Store, a local grocery, carries everything you'll need and only 10 minutes from the cabin. If you want a Walmart, one is located in Ellsworth, only 45 minutes away.
One suggestion... arrive in the daytime... it is VERY dark, and few street lights are around. Finding Seaside Cottages in the dark is near impossible. We were so thankful for cell phone coverage, and for Kathy's patience while we inched our way toward the resort so late at night.

PINELODGE COTTAGE WAS LIKE A HOME AWAY FROM HOME.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I can't say enough about your place. - Like staying in a home - not a rental. The cottage was spotless, fully equipped and very comfortable. the deck that looked out to the ocean was priceless. Beautiful property and surrounding area. We hope to be back soon.
