Mount Desert Cottage Rental Photos and Description
New 2-4 BR Architect Desiged, Artful and Secluded on the Water
You cannot find a more beautiful setting or elegant designer home than this one--overlooking Long Pond in a very private wooded shore front location, the ambiance and special feeling of this place defies description. New construction in the style of classic Scandinavian design (owned by a family of architects and artists), the wall of glass facing the lake and extensive use of wood and art-glass, plus a huge double-sided wood-burning blue stone fireplace creates a more-than-comfortable open-plan living area, with an upscale kitchen featuring granite tops, stainless steel appliances, an eat-at island and dining area. Two sleeping/sitting lofts with beds and futons flank the living area (accessible only via ship's ladders, for the nimble and careful only--use at your own risk). Two large water-view bedrooms, each with full bath, also flank the living area, providing separation and privacy when desired.
The real star of this show-house, though, is the huge deck overlooking pristine Long Pond and the hills on the far shore, with filtered light though the pines and breezes almost all the time--the kind of place where you doze in the dappled sunlight and sparkling reflections off the water and forget the rest of the world. Then, a visit to the dock, a plunge into the cool water and...wake up!
