COMFORTABLE NEW, AIR-CONDITIONED, FOUR-BEDROOM COTTAGE IN ACADIA NATIONAL PARK

Mount Desert House Rental Photos and Description

Lovely New Home Set On A Tranquil Wooded Lot. With Air-conditioning.

Thank you for considering Fox Cottage,

This lovely new cape is set on a tranquil wooded lot, offering privacy and a great central location on Mount Desert Island. Equidistant to the villages of Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor and Southwest Harbor, the hiking trails of Acadia National Park are only minutes away, as is fresh water swimming on Long Pond or Echo Lake. Just stepping out the front door is a treat, an open lawn area out front with a grill is perfect for picnics, while the cedar and pine forest out back invite exploration. Built in 2009, this nice clean house features all new furniture and appliances, and a modern, well-equipped kitchen. Direct TV and wireless internet are provided. For sleeping accommodations there are four bedrooms, with one king, two queen and two twin size beds. We have added Air-conditioning upstairs and downstairs this summer to add to the relaxing comfort of the house .

We gladly welcome pets.

Jim & Marilyn.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We recently spent four days in the Fox house. It was easy to find. Their home is situated on a secluded, peaceful property. All the linens, towels, dishes, pots, pans, BBQ grill and a lobster pot that you could possibly need are provided. There were eight of us, and we had enough of room to spread out and relax. The house is clean and well-maintained. The owners were very friendly. The house worked very well for us.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
The house was clean, fully stocked with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. A beautiful wooded, quiet lot that the dogs and kids could play safely at. The owner was easy to get a hold of and nice to work with. About 20 minutes from Bar Harbor. We would stay there again and recommend it to family and friends!

"Pet friendly" is a bit of a misnomer

"Pet friendly" is a bit of a misnomer
  • 5 of 5
We had a great vacation here and wholeheartedly agree with everything the other reviewers mentioned -- the house is huge, comfortable, centrally located for exploring all of MDI and Acadia, and has a very well-equipped kitchen. The property is also extremely private -- you won't hear or see a neighbor in any direction. And while the property doesn't have direct water access, it's less than a five minute drive to Great Long Pond where you can inexpensively rent kayaks, canoes and paddleboards from National Park Canoe and Kayak Rental.

The listing mentions "We gladly welcome pets" but this really understates what the property has to offer. This house is not "pet-friendly"..."doggie nirvana" is more like it!! This place is paradise for dogs. I don't know how many acres the house sits on but it's an amazing spot. To start with, the house sits at the end of a 0.1 mile gravel driveway so it's well-removed from the road. The front yard has a huge lawn and is surrounded by woods, and the backyard has a small deck and is also surrounded by woods. We were able to leave our dogs outside for hours at a time as they chased deer, explored the woods and sunned themselves on the lawn. Our dogs clearly enjoyed themselves as much as we did.

It's worth mentioning that MDI is extremely pet-friendly (including shops, restaurants, and most hikes in Acadia Nat'l Park), so bring your pup! Stop by Bark Harbor (a pet store on Main Street in Bar Harbor) who can give you a current list of pet-friendly restaurants on MDI, and find Farmer Brown at either of the farmers markets for some awesome bones your dog will love.

Overall we loved the house, highly recommend it, and plan to come back again ourselves next year.

Great place. Be careful of the fire alarm.

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely home with a well stocked kitchen. Everything was clean and in good shape.

You can hear the occasional car pass, but you can't even see the road from the house, and there was no noise from neighbors. The garage was empty, and we were able to use it for our car.

Read the guest book when you arrive. They are very serious about the fire alarm in the master bedroom. It is right next to the bathroom. Someone in our party opened the door from the bathroom after a shower and the alarm immediately went off. She was too short to reach the alarm to turn it off. The alarms are hard-wired, which means that the alarms went off in all the bedrooms at this point. Luckily, everyone was already awake. So if you shower when others are asleep, either run the cold water before you leave the bathroom or use the shower in the hall.

Two more small issues. Two of the bedrooms have no dressers. Luckily, they both have a shelf in the closet. (Too high for my daughter, but good for any adult.)

The other is just for very large parties. The house easily sleeps 8, and the dining room table fits 8 as well. But the living room is a bit tight for 8. You can pull in dining room chairs -- there's space, just not furniture.

For our dog, the place was great. We were so happy to find a place which takes dogs, and the yard is large with trees bordering on all sides, so our dog could roam.

Overall, we were extremely happy.

My family and I have rented vacation homes for the past 7 years and this one is one of the nicest we've been to. It was clean and well kept. The beds are comfy. The kitchen is large with plenty of dishes and pans and the living room furniture begged to be sat on. It's well insulated so our laughter on game nights didn't disturb the ones that went to sleep early(big plus). The property is surrounded by woods which made the stars extremely visible. It's centrally located so we were able to see the entire Mt. Desert Island without much driving. Nothing on the island is very far from this home and Jim provided great customer service. We highly recommend it.

Great home base for exploring Mount Desert Island

  • 4 of 5
Very spacious, comfortable and clean rental. It was a great home base for exploring all over Mount Desert Island. After a long day of outdoor activities, it was nice to arrive back at the rental to cook dinner in a kitchen loaded with utensils/cooking equipment) and relax in comfort. We've been to the island many times and like to spend time on both the east and west sides of the island. The location of this rental was fairly central for easy access to all points.

We'd definitely stay here again and recommend it to others who get out and about. It's not for anyone who is looking for a rental with a scenic view or onsite activities (e.g., water access).

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of several couples with a couple of kids below two years old and we had a fabulous time here. We were most looking forward to the grill and grilled some fantastic lobsters that were better than anything we ate at the nearby lobster pounds that we went to. Also the house seems very new with fantastic brand new appliances that were way better than we had imagined and anything anyone had at home. The fire pit was also a highlight as we were able to have smores and look up at an abundance of stars. The place was clean and well maintained. The owners were really responsive and made themselves available. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends.
