A great cottage on a great location

  • 5 of 5
We have been vacationing in this area for over 20 years and this is one of the nicest locations we haved stayed. The cottage is somewhat elevated from the ocean level which allows a spectacular view to the southwest over Blue Hill Bay, the west end of Swan's Island and beyond to Isle Au Haut. The cottage was exactly as described although the physical description could not convey how very comfortable the place is. The layout is simple, bright and clean with everything one could need for a vacation stay. The deck was perfect for the coktail hour and wonderful sunsets. The kitchen had everything and more. Beds were comfortable, and with the southwest breeze at night you can bring the August night time temperature down to the mid 50's just by how far the windows are left open. Everything worked well, including the TV's and the internet. My wife was surprised to find the French channel on the TV selection as French is one of her hobbies.

We have done mostly all of the usual local attractions, but one of our favorites is Island Cruises mid day boat tour out of nearby Bass Harbor to Frenchboro for lunch (BYO wine). On this trip, we ran into a school of 30-40 dolphins, which the Captian had never seen in all his years doing this trip.

Sawyer's Lobster Pound in Southwest harbor has one of the best lobster rolls ever as attested by the August edition of Downeast Magazine as one of the best in the state. And, lunch on the terrace at the Bar Harbor Inn is always a must-do for us.

Without any reservations, we would recommend this cottage to anyone. It lacks nothing and has everything needed for day to day living and vacationing. It's the kind of place you don't mind just hanging out and relaxing, which we did on several afternoons. It's also very quiet and you can hear the loons down in the cove early in the morning after the lobstermen have left at 5:30 am for their days work.

PERFECT PEACEFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We fell in love with Goose Cottage the minute we turned onto the private drive. The wooded lot is stunning and filled with beautiful ferns and spruce trees. The smell is incredible. You feel like you are strolling through a Christmas tree lot! The cottage itself is immaculate and cozy. It truly feels like a home away from home. The view from the deck is gorgeous. You can see harbor seals sunning themselves and porpoises swimming as well as lobster boats heading out for their daily catch. Watching the tide change and exploring the private beach for sea stars and shells was a great way to start each day. The sunsets are amazing as is the star gazing at night. The setting is so serene and peaceful. The owners are wonderful people and seemed as excited about our stay as we were. It is obvious that they take great pride in the ownership of this beautiful home. Some personal highlights of our trip included hiking Acadia. We found the hiking on the East side of MDI to be spectacular. We also enjoyed a kayak tour with Maine State Sea Kayak. The food in nearby Southwest Harbor is delicious. Some of our favorite restaurants included SIPS and CAFE2 along with QUIETSIDE CAFE.
If you are looking for true natural beauty in a quiet comfortable setting in close proximity to great restaurants and all of the adventures Acadia has to offer, then this is your place to call home.

Goose Cove Bliss

  • 5 of 5
We cannot say enough about this cottage or its owners. So very accommodating and there isn't a lovelier spot. The view of the ocean when you arrive is absolutely jaw dropping. We had beautiful weather and were busy with the many activities Acadia had to offer- from sea kayaking, hiking, exploring local shops and lobster! We had a wonderful stay! Just what we were looking for and more.

The perfect quiet place on the Quietside of MDI

  • 5 of 5
If your're still looking for a place, stop here!

We ( a 55+ couple) spent hours looking before selecting this location, and it turned out to be perfect for our two-week stay. The house is comfortable and fully equipped. The owners are warm and responsive, as are the locals who run the restaurants and shops in Southwest Harbor...just 10 minutes from the property.

The view from the deck and living room wants to keeps you there all the time. You'll also love just sitting in the Adirondack chairs nestled on the edge of Goose Cove, strolling in the forest on the property or exploring the shoreline at low tide.

We did all the the things that you read about on MDI and loved each event. We particularly enjoyed the carriage ride in the Park, the lobster boat tour out of Southwest Harbor, the golf at the Causeway Course, the hiking trails off Fernald Point Road (which require some "billygoating" as described by a fellow hiker), and the never to be missed, cookies at Manset Little Farm. We also can recommend the restaurants in Southwest Harbor. It's amazing to us that you can find such quality in a small town.

Just go and relax.

Acadia At Its Best

  • 5 of 5
This was our third visit to 'Goose Cove Cottage' and again we had a marvelous two weeks! So many adventures, including sunrise at Cadillac Mountain, whale watching, biking the carriage roads and hiking the many trails throughout Acadia. Your location is excellent- close enough to everything, yet a quiet and peaceful spot to return to at the end of each day. We've so enjoyed your wonderful cottage, views and fascinating shoreline. Spotting seals, deer in the early morning and even a bald eagle was an extra treat! We especially enjoy kayaking across the cove to pick up our fresh lobsters right from the dock as the boats return each afternoon! We can't say enough about our time here and we will be back, so much more to see in this beautiful place.

Beautiful Location on Quiet Cove

  • 5 of 5
We so enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. This place is truly heavenly! Watching lobster boats as you sip your coffee each morning and walking the pebble beach looking for sea glass was just what we needed. We had to peel ourselves away from the deck so we could enjoy Acadia and all the things there are to do! Each evening watching the stars was a treat! We look forward to returning next summer.

We are located minutes away from Acadia National Park, where hiking and biking are favorite activities of visitors. You will love vacationing here on the 'Quietside' of the Island - away from the hustle & bustle of Bar Harbor, yet in close proximity to excellent restaurants and all the activities of Mt. Desert Island. The Villages of Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor and Bar Harbor plus Acadia National Park's main entrance are a picturesque 10 to 25 minutes away by car.

Located near the end of a private drive on well sheltered Goose Cove, our secluded 21 acres of land also provides plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities. We have 1,000 feet of private shore frontage with beach, ledges, and tidal pools for hours of exploring. Kayaks may be rented locally and launched easily from our beach.

Although you may not want to leave beautiful Goose Cove, you'll want to venture out, as the site-seeing and recreational opportunities abound on Mount Desert Island. In Acadia National Park there are endless mountains and trails to hike or bike, museums to visit, whale or bird watching, first class shopping and dining to experience, and excellent fresh and salt water fishing. For the golfing enthusiasts, close by in Southwest Harbor is The Causeway Club, a fun and scenic 9 hole course. For a bigger golf challenge, you can play the famous 18-hole Kebo Valley Golf Club in Bar Harbor.

After a full day of island adventure, come back to a peaceful setting to prepare fresh seafood for dinner in our well equiped kitchen and enjoy a beautiful sunset while relaxing on our large deck overlooking Goose Cove and Blue Hill Bay.
