Overview

Sullivan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

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!

Peaceful bay front property with easy access to Maine sites

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much and loved coming home after a day of sightseeing to a secluded home with a beautiful view. An hour to Acadia and 1/2 hour to Winter Cove the the Schoodic Peninsula. We had a glitch upon our arrival, but Susan was gracious and did a good job at communicating with us to solve the problem. Well equipped kitchen, large deck with chairs, spacious bedrooms and bathrooms (we had 4 people in our party), cabin like feel. It was nice to have a washing machine available and the new oven/microwave/convection oven was lovely. The seating (kitchen chairs and couches) were "well used" and could have been more comfortable. My parents are a bit older and found it easy to get around the property. We walked down to the water at low tide and watched the sunrise one morning. Sat of the deck to watch the sunset as well. Excellent views and a true peaceful getaway. The price was good as compared to some of the other VRBO's we have stayed at.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Stacey. Your review reinforces our decision to buy a new couch and dining set before next season. We hope you will want to come back to test them out on your next trip to Acadia!

Relaxation on the cove

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed a long weekend at this fantastic cottage in Sullivan. It's quaint, quiet, and has a beautiful view from the deck, overlooking the cove. The cottage was perfect - clean, well equipped with everything we needed, even a ton of information on activities for the rainy day or two we had on our trip. The owner was very personable and helpful as well, providing recommendations and answering my questions in preparation for the trip. The drive to Mount Desert Island in Acadia is not too far, and neither is the drive to Schoodic. Can't say enough for this place. We had a wonderful time and will surely return!

Loved the privacy!

  • 4 of 5

This house was very much as advertised. It was clean and comfortable and the view at high tide is unbeatable. We especially enjoyed the very private setting. Wildlife sightings included otter, deer, seals, eagles, herons, osprey and more. We visited in August, when the south facing deck was pretty much unusable during the day. But in cooler weather it would be very appealing. The cove is shallow, so at low tide the cottage is pretty much sitting on a mud flat. But at high tide, this site cannot be surpassed. We will likely return.

Owner's Response: Maine weather can be persickety, so unfortunately we can't do too much about hot summers. The deck can be a great place to view the cove's tidal changes and the wildlife it draws. We have found the tidal clock helpful in planning our daily excursions around high and low tide. I hope your next trip to Acadia will be a bit cooler.

Beyond Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Super clean well maintained property away from all the hustle and bustle. Several local restaurants within a close car drive, major stores are within a 10-15 mile easy drive. Not a bumper to bumper drive like in the Bar Harbor area. The cove is very intriguing watching the different tide levels and the variety of wildlife. All the conviences of a modern day stay. A little limited on TV channels but who needs TV in a location like this. It felt great each day returning from siteseeing to a little slice of heaven.

My husband and I could not have been more pleased with our week at this house. There was every amenity and more that you could ever need. It was clean and comfortable and felt like home from home. We had coffee and cocktails watching the tides and birds from the picture window, just as depicted in the listing photos. The location was ideally situated between Acadia National Park and Schoodic Point. The owner is definitely involved about any problems that you may have and appreciates you contacting the very wonderful property managers if you have any concerns.

We would highly recommend this property and look forward to returning again.

Chester's Pike is 1 mile on Route one for a good reasonably priced breakfast.

We bought good local lobster and Seafood at Hannaford Supermarket on the way to Ellsworth. There is also an excellent Natural Food Shop on Main St. Downtown Ellsworth.

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.
