Overview

Tremont Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Four quiet acres, three bedroom, two bath ocean front home that sleeps up to 8.

Duck Duck Goose is a serene retreat that allows its guest to be completely ensconced in the traditional Maine way of life. This recently built carriage house, tucked away in the Maine woods, sits on the edge of Duck Cove, overlooking Blue Hill Bay and all of its lovely islands. The privacy and beauty allow for quiet walks along the rocky coast beach, sitting on the private dock viewing a delightful sunrise or sunset, and viewing stars that can only be seen in the Maine skies. Located on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island allows for seclusion and reflection while still having the small towns within comfortable driving distance. Acadia National Park makes up the island of MDI and is a short drive away. The mountains to hike, roads to bike, and water to paddle or boat, make this location more special than most. This quaint carriage home was finished in August 2012 and offers a comfortable, warm cottage feeling with all the makings of your own home. The first floor living space includes your entry, laundry, full bath, family room and bedroom with two double beds, not to mention three sets of lovely French doors never leaving you without a view of the water. The second floor invites you to its grand living/dining space with overhead loft and open kitchen, allowing all guests to be near. There are also two bedroom on this floor, one with queen bed and the other with 2 twins. The bathroom provides a soaking tub, a separate shower, a private loo and forest views. Every room has dimmed lighting, comfortable seating, water views and immaculate furnishings. The dining table hosts 8 all the while taking in the ocean breezes and the beautiful outdoors. Not one stone was left unturned. While relaxing in the warm comforts indoors, you will still want to find your way outdoors. Along the carriage home leading to the water is a lovely forest trail which includes a fireside retreat as well as ocean front dining. Enjoy your cocktails listening to the tide wash up on the rocks, or build a fire and grab your marshmallows to roast. Further enjoy a wonderful private dock where you can sunbathe, enjoy your morning coffee or put your boat into the water and go for a paddle. It's hard to decide where you want to be, inside or out, but this Maine carriage home awaits your company.

***** A three car garage on the first floor of the cottage is an owner's garage and is not accessible for renters use. If you desire to bring canoes or kayaks, they are safe and secure near the waters edge. If you wish to bring bicycles, they are safe within our private community and may be sheltered from in-climate weather under our front porch.

About owner/property manager

I am a mother of four and special education teacher in New York. One day I plan to retire at Duck, Duck...Goose. My family live on the island and I have been coming to the island since I was 15.

All of my children were raised in Maine during their summers and spent their high school summers working at local restaurants and camps.

I currently reside in New York during the school year and on MDI during each holiday and summer.

I built this carriage house and decorated with all of my favorite things --and built it to last. This is not your typical rental, this is my home for you to enjoy and make wonderful family memories!

owner/property manager purchased this cottage in 2012

Why owner/property manager chose Tremont

Duck Duck Goose is brand new, waiting to be enjoyed, waiting for memories to begin. The perfect balance between charming furnishings and modern conveniences where anyone would want to call home. Its a toss up as to which room you want to spend time in or being outside and embracing the woods, the water and the islands. Fall in love with nature, your significant others and get back to what is important.

What makes this cottage unique

You can bring your canoes or kayaks and put them right into the water either from the private dock or just down in the front yard.

You can jump on your bikes and disappear for hours enjoying the coastal streets, the national park and trails and Bass Harbor Light.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
We pulled up into the drive, my kids ran in and came right back out and said, "Dad, this is an awesome house!" The house is really nice inside and was very clean and had all the amenities you would want, we had 6 people traveling and there was plenty of room with the 2 living rooms. My favorite area was the back yard right on the water, we had fires every night and it was great for kayaking and fishing. I was catching Mackerel right of the dock with my Son. My wife and I had coffee on the swing by the water every morning and watched the Lobstermen pull in their traps! What a view!!!!

Peaceful doorway into Acadia trails and coves

This property provides a wonderful jumping off point to thoroughly explore the quiet side of Mt. Desert - with access to Bernard Mountain and Long Pond trails, Southwest and Bass Harbors, and numerous sea kayaking opportunities. Waking up you can have coffee along the well-landscaped shoreline (the swing overlooking the cove is especially nice), explore the rocky beach, and then jump into other Mt. Desert activities. The dock provides another vantage point from which to see the beach, the cove, and the house. You can feel "off the beaten path" but yet be within striking distance of the more densely populated parts of the island (e.g., Northeast Harbor, Bar Harbor, and the Park Loop trails). We even did s'mores in the fire pit as the sun set.

We were a party of six - four adults, two children, and the two-levels of the house allowed for privacy when needed and a great gathering space for puzzles, reading, and debriefing the day's activities. The kitchen was very clean and very well-stocked.

I would highly recommend this beautiful carriage house.
