Overview

Mount Desert Cottage Rental Photos and Description

New For 2013, Pond View, High Quality Furnishings, Well-connected/internet, Etc

As its name indicates, this fully renovated cabin (new for 2013) sits on a hill with views out towards “Pond’s End” on the north shore of Long Pond. Great Long Pond is a roughly 900 acre lake on the less crowded “Quietside” of Mount Desert Island and offers outstanding boating access. National Park Canoe and Kayak Rental and a public swimming park and boat ramp are a few hundred yards walk from the cabin. About 2/3 of the Pond’s shoreline is part of Acadia National Park, and is accessed by hiking trails for all skill levels along the lake shore and up Mansell, Bernard and Beech Mountains. Acadia’s Park Loop Road is a short drive, and offers access to the other Park attractions on the east side of the Island. Southwest Harbor, Seawall, Bass Harbor Lighthouse and Somesville are a few of the destinations close by on the Quietside.

The cabin features an open floor plan living/dining area with cathedral ceiling, adjacent to the stainless and hickory-wood kitchen. A separate bedroom with double bed, and a tongue-and-groove pine bathroom with shower, complete the accommodations. Electric baseboard heat throughout the home keeps the cabin cozy in spring and fall. The front deck and side garden areas provide relaxing outdoor living space.

TV for viewing DVDs, radio with support for MP3 player, WiFi DSL Internet, microwave, dishwasher, fans, stainless gas grill. Long distance calls require a credit/calling card.

Beautiful cottage in a lovely location

  • 4 of 5
This was a beautiful place to stay. The cottage is cozy and very clean; even though it's small the living room feels spacious with high ceilings. The furniture is comfortable and tasteful and looks new. The wifi worked perfectly. There was a binder and a good collection of books about the area. The kitchen is thoughtfully stocked with quality cookware. We enjoyed cooking out on the grill and eating on the porch, and cooking lobster that we bought live at the pound in Southwest Harbor, as well as walking down to Pond's End to enjoy the water and sun. There are lots of deer living nearby and one morning they grazed right by the window and the porch.

The location was great for us, it's in a quieter part of the island but there is still plenty to do. There was some confusion over the presence of a washer/dryer because the agent's email instructed us to put sheets and towels in the laundry when leaving, but when we got there we realized there was none. There is a laundromat fairly close by though. The location can be slightly tricky to find as Google Street View puts it a bit off, but the number is visible from the road on the mailbox and we found it without any real trouble.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this wonderful review. The agent is so sorry that the form letter was not changed, eliminating the part about the laundry but we are happy it was not a problem for you. We appreciate the great condition in which the cottage was left. Please feel free to come again.
Thak you again for the kind words.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5
Even after a week, I didn't want to leave! We loved the cottage, and Mount Desert Island in general. The cottage was decorated just as one would expect a quaint cottage to be. It is brand new, clean, and beautiful, inside and out. Anything a person could want was there-to books, games, DVDs, mosquito repelling candles, bandaids, lobster utensils, wine bottle toppers, coasters. I could go on and on-really-they had everything! The kitchen was beautiful and included a gas range, microhood, toaster oven, coffee maker, and electric kettle. The cabinets were stocked with high quality pots, pans, utensils, and glassware-even wine and shot glasses! They provided extra towels, sheets, and blankets. The bed was comfy too. While we were there, it got really hot. There were fans to help cool things down. There’s no cable, but there is a small TV/DVD combo and WIFI, so we took our laptop and watched a few TV shows on it. There’s also no cell phone reception, but there is a landline phone. (I loved being unavailable anyway!)
Not only was the inside incredible, but so was the outside. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck listening to the call of the loons. We also had dinners outside, taking advantage of the nice grill they provided. A two-minute walk got us to the kayak/canoe rental place and the swimming area. After a hot day of hikes or sightseeing, a refreshing swim in the cool pond was in order!
The real estate company who handles this rental was a dream to deal with. Everything was handled in a timely, professional manner. Paula also gave us helpful tips on activities to do. Having someone care about the quality of our vacation added to how truly happy we were with our trip.
The cottage was close to Southwest Harbor, and we had a few great meals at Sea Biscuits, Fiddler’s Green, and Red Sky. Hiking, kayaking, and swimming were fun. The Ship Harbor hiking trail was breathtaking, and the Beehive was tops. Once we got up and over the top, we took a much-deserved swim in The Bowl. Watching the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain was also something I will never forget.
I have taken many vacations, and this goes down as my favorite. I have not one negative thing to say about Mount Desert Island or the cottage. Pond Hill Cottage gets a 10 out of 10. Rent it. You won’t be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Lisa, for this glowing review. We really appreciate it! We hope you will be back to visit us in the future. Having this lovely cottage fully enjoyed by the people who use it, marks it as a true success in the owners eyes. They want visitors that come to the island to enjoy Long Pond as much as they do. Thanks, again, for being so thoughtful, by writing this wonderful review.
Sincerely,
Paula

Pond's End

This private cottage is right across the street from Long Pond, one of the best swimming and boating water bodies in Maine. It is centrally located and Acadia's sights can be visited every day. There are plenty of hiking trails and mountains to climb, plus too many restaurants to be able to try them all in one vacation!
