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.

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.

Delightful, Fully Equipped Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
We were absolutely delighted with our rental of your Mt. Desert property. Upon our arrival, we found all the conveniences and comforts of home including a fully equipped kitchen, wireless internet service, dish TV, plenty of fresh towels, washer/dryer (which helped with our three little girls!), fire pit, etc.; the home was also nice and clean for us and had been very well maintained. For the week that we were there, it was our home away from home. Everything (including the mattresses, down to the bedding) was of high standard quality. Bar Harbor was a short drive away. Our children loved swimming in the fresh water lake that was just a few miles from the house along with early morning runs, kayaking, and canoeing. We spotted numerous deer along the roads and the children found blackberries growing close to the driveway. We found the property description to be accurate, the layout of the home just as pictured and the amenities adequate. The owner provided excellent customer service and even checked in with us during our stay to ensure all was well and inquired of a convenient time to stop by to mow the grass. We would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to visit the wonderful state of Maine as it was an excellent experience. We took in a nature cruise at Bar Harbor, shopped in Bar Harbor and dined at Rupununi (lobster rolls and fresh blueberry pie) and ate hand dipped ice cream as we strolled the streets. We also drove to Bass Harbor Lighthouse and purchased artisan style breads and fresh caught lobsters (13 lobsters for $65 - a bargain!). We had a delightful meal that evening and were so happy to have the convenience of preparing our meal in the spacious, well-equipped kitchen. Walmart was only about 12 mi. away if we forgot any grocery or sundry items. We drove to Lubec, ME one day to visit West Quoddy lighthouse and their delightful beach/park area. Afterwards, we dined at the Bluebird Ranch Family Restaurant in Machias, ME; their fish and chips, haddock chowder and fresh baked pies were enjoyed by all. On another occasion we enjoyed dining at Helen's American Restaurant in Ellsworth. We purchased boxes of blueberry taffy for our friends back home, along with many other assorted items from the local gift shops. We also visited Fort Knox, Pemaquid Lighthouse and Portland Headlight. The last night of our stay there was a meteor shower which we took in around the fire pit as we made s'mores. Wonderful memories!!

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5
The house was great! Stayed with 7 adults and 2 infants and there was more than enough room. The master bedroom above the garage could fit an army and was perfect for a travel crib without bumping up against our bed. A reasonable drive from Bar Harbor and the Bar Harbor airport.

The house was clean and ready for our arrival, exactly like the pictures and our expectations. Was very happy with the state of everything and the amenities - we had everything we needed, even a cast iron skillet!

Jim was great, answered all emails promptly and helpfully

Would definitely recommend this to friends and family, and would come back.

Recommend going into town to walk around and try some of the restaurants. The lobster pound by the airport was fantastic - stays plenty hot to bring back to the house. Otherwise, go hiking in the park and head to the beach!
