SECLUDED COTTAGE AT WATER'S EDGE WITH 15 FORESTED ACRES

Sullivan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 baths w/ futon in LR (sleeps 4 to 6)

This secluded oceanfront cottage is located on Long Cove in Sullivan, Maine. The quarter-mile dirt driveway leads directly from US HWY 1 through 15 forested acres to the water's edge. The 1,100 foot shoreline is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including eagles, ospreys, seals, deer and the occasional red fox. This family retreat has served as a honeymoon cottage as well as a favorite vacation spot for family and friends.

Nestled between two groves of evergreens, the cottage's wrap-around deck and two large picture windows give visitors the chance to relax and witness the quiet of the cove, watching the changes that unfold as the tides rise and fall. Walks along the rocky beach at low tide and following paths through the woods are just what the doctor ordered to combat the stress of a hectic life. The sunsets are exquisite, and on a clear night the sky is so full of stars that it can be a challenge to identify the constellations amid the Milky Way. A birder's paradise and a historical piece of Sullivan history, the property is part of the Frenchman Bay Conservancy and is preserved as is for future generations to enjoy.

The surrounding area is renowned for hiking, biking, kayaking, sightseeing, antiquing, and visiting artists' studios. Nearby family restaurants that are favorites of the locals offer lobster and other Down East specialties. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are 45 minutes to the southwest, and Winter Harbor and the entrance to Acadia National Park's Schoodic Peninsula is 30 minutes to the northeast.

About Susan Lindberg

Living too many miles from Maine, siblings Jim and Susan decided to make this special place on Long Cove in Sullivan, Maine, available to vacation renters during part of the year. Throughout their childhood, the owners spent two weeks of every summer together with their family at the Sullivan home of their maternal grandfather, affectionately known as 'Bumpa.' The current cottage was built in 1971 on the wooded lot across U.S. Highway 1 from the original homestead.

Those family vacations left us with wonderful memories, such as:

• riding with 'Bumpa' in an open 1946 Willys Jeep to the corner store for comics and ice cream before breakfast

• swimming at Flanders or Molasses Ponds on a hot summer day

• collecting shells, driftwood, and colored glass along the beaches at Sorrento

• 'bowling' with naturally rounded stones at Grindstone Neck

• hikes on Mt. Desert Island, Schoodic Mountain, and even Mt. Katahdin

• drives around the Park Loop Road to see Egg Rock, Thunder Hole, and Otter Cliffs

• watching the awesome power of the surf at Schoodic Point

• picking wild blueberries and raspberries for wonderful tastes of summer

• searching for the constellations and witnessing the Perseid meteor showers on crystal-clear nights.

Visitors to this special place on Long Cove will take their own memories along with them when they leave. We hope they will return to create still more for many summers to come!

Perfectly appointed cottage!

  • 5 of 5
We wanted for nothing during our stay; open floor plan, secluded setting, and all the amenities you could ask for, yet within reach of the (INSANE!) beauty of Acadia...

Owner's Response: Acadia is insanely beautiful in the fall, too--our favorite time of year there. Lovely foliage, cooler weather, fewer tourists and the bluest of skies in autumn.

Wonderful spot for Acadia visit

  • 5 of 5
This place was wonderful! It is the perfect spot to be able to visit Bar Harbor and Acadia. The great thing is that it is easy to also get to the Schoodic point of Acadia. I highly recommend nature lovers to visit that part of Acadia. The house is very peaceful and the owner is super responsive. I hated to leave and I would love to go back. We saw an eagle every day in the tree beside the house and we also say osprey and a seal in the cove. in the morning, you can see the lobster traps being collected in the nearby cove from the large deck.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5
The house was very well stocked and organized. The secluded area made our stay that much better. The short walk to the bay made great walking adventures for our kids. We will definetly consider this property again.

Perfect relaxing vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
The two of us had an absolutely lovely stay in Sullivan for a week in June. The cove is gorgeous, full of opportunities to see local birds and wildlife. We spent serene afternoons relaxing on the deck and at the window, soaking in the view. The location is completely ideal, right between Mount Desert Island for hiking / day trips, and Winter Harbor for seaside attractions (and lobster!). Ellsworth is a short drive away for groceries and amenities, and there a number of small restaurants closer to the cottage that are highly recommended. We will definitely be telling everyone we know about this place for any type of getaway!

Maine Getaway on the Cove

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our week in this lovely house on the cove. It was a secluded area with a nice porch that was perfect for breakfast or evening drinks while watching the sun set. The house was well equipped with a full kitchen, washer and drier. The afternoons could get hot and the two small fans were very appreciated. We also really enjoyed having 2 bathrooms, a luxury we don't have at home. We loved being a short drive from Ellsworth and Bar Harbor, and went exploring in different directions many days. I also want to mention how easy it was too book, check in and out, and how kind Susan is in supplying information before our trip and the brochures and info in the house. Cleonice/The Maine Grind in Ellsworth became an almost daily stop for excellent coffee. All around, it made for a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation spot.

Owner's Response: Happy to hear you enjoyed your vacation at our cottage, Anne. We may need to provide an additional fan or two considering how much warmer this summer has been. Hope to hear from you in the future.

Lovely cottage on a peaceful cove

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks here at the end of July. The house is on a huge piece of property that makes it very private and peaceful. It has the perfect location -- close proximity to Acadia and the beautiful Schoodic Peninsula, yet still with a pleasant out-of-the-way feeling. Between hikes in Acadia, we spent a couple of days just relaxing at the house, enjoying the view and watching the tide go in and out (and the wild life with it). We discovered it is right next to an amazing breakfast/lunch restaurant that we went to over five times! The house is well taken care of, it had been cleaned spotless before we arrived. It is well equipped, with a washer/dryer, dishwasher, and has a well-stocked kitchen (especially for those delicious lobster dinners). It is perfect for either a week at a quiet getaway relaxing, or an adventure filled sight-seeing vacation. We would love to return!
