SEASIDE COTTAGE, OCEANFRONT, PRIVATE BEACH, @ ACADIA NATIONAL PARK

Acadia National Park Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Acadia Sunset Seaside Cottage offers you an opportunity to sample Acadia National Park, lobster, chowder, dining out, boating, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, ocean and freshwater swimming, hiking, walking, bicycling, blueberry picking, birding, garden touring, shopping in quaint boutiques, and more -- or to just get some quiet relaxation and reading time in your cozy oceanfront cottage. Acadia Sunset Seaside Cottage is a 3-bedroom, 3-bath house right on the water with your own access to a private stretch of shore. It has a game room, reading room, and relaxing, screened-in porch in addition to living, kitchen, and dining rooms. It is well suited to accommodate multiple generations or a small group of friends, where you can both enjoy common rooms and preserve your privacy.

You can enjoy any of several cozy nooks to settle in with a good book. Or play ping pong with friends or family on a day at home. You are surrounded by gorgeous sunsets that you can enjoy in your private screened-in porch every evening. And you are steps away from your own private stretch of beach, where you can put in a canoe or kayak, beach comb for shells and sea treasures, or simply enjoy the view out to Maine's famous island-dotted shore, with the Nature Conservancy's Placentia Island in the distance, and Swan's Island just beyond. Every room has a water view and en suite bath. You are less than five minutes' drive from the Acadia National Park trails called Wonderland and Ship's Harbor, which bring you out to gorgeous rocky bluffs along the open ocean and Maine's famous rocky coast. A minute more and you're at Bass Harbor Head Light, the most photographed lighthouse on the U.S. East Coast. In five minutes you’re in Southwest Harbor with ample opportunities for shopping, dining, and boating; in two more minutes you’re hiking Acadia Mountain or swimming in Echo Lake; and in ten minutes you're in Bar Harbor, with its quaint shops, restaurants, whale watching, naturalist boating, sailing, deep-sea diving, Park tours, and many other opportunities.

Few locations in the United States can compare to the beauty and diversity of Mt. Desert Island (MDI) and Acadia National Park. Acadia National Park and its famous gateway towns are treasured the world over as some of the most beautiful spots “where the mountains meet the sea.” Ocean, lakes, mountains, miles and miles of hiking trails, dedicated bicycling and walking trails, gorgeous countryside, and the towns of Tremont, Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor, and Bar Harbor provide unlimited opportunities for relaxation and recreation. Come for some much-needed rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation at Acadia Sunset Seaside Cottage!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had an absolutely marvelous time. The cottage was perfect for us. It was a place we could have stayed longer and just sat on the porch and vegetated. The sunsets were beautiful and were enjoyed from the porch. We saw many sights but was always glad to return to the cottage. Thank you for providing such a wonderful place.

We both grew up in the Northeast United States, and have traveled extensively throughout the US and Europe as well as Down Under. We enjoy quality accommodations when we travel, appreciate the extra thoughtfulness that can make a stay more pleasant, and strive to give that experience to our guests.

Peter Cutrone purchased this cottage in 1999

Acadia Seaside Cottages are family-run vacation rental properties. We have capitalized on Peter's years of experience as an innkeeper in New England and our shared love of travel to bring you a warm cottage experience in one of America's most beautiful National Parks. An oceanfront setting, the comforts and conveniences of home, and access to a greater range of activities than you can possibly pursue in a weeks’ time combine to give you a vacation experience that you’ll treasure for years to come.

Acadia Seaside Cottages are convenient to all that Acadia has to offer, without being directly in the hustle and bustle of a summer seaside resort. You are directly on the water, and can enjoy ocean views under a spectacular sunset, explore the beach, or explore the Park at your leisure.

BEST VACATION EVER! FIVE GLOWING STARS

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I are celebrating our 40th anniversary this month and decided to take our 2 daughters & their husbands & our grandchildren (all under 5) to Acadia for a week. After looking at dozens of homes , I came across this one that sounded perfect for our family. The pictures do not do this place justice. We were surprised at how spacious, open, and airy it was inside. The house was lovely, clean & comfortable. It was evident that the owners put a lot of thought in to special details. We mostly ate in, rather that take the littles out to dinner, and the kitchen was well equipped with plenty of room to work. We also grilled several evenings. We left the cottage before 9 each morning, and drove to our daily destination: Beach day at Echo Lake. Bike Riding around Witch Hole Pond and Eagle Lake. Picking Blueberries. Driving Park Loop Road & up Cadillac Mt. Bar Harbor with a walk to Bar Island at low tide. Walked the Shore Walk as well. Spent an AM in Northeast Harbor & then Thuya Gardens. AM in Southwest Harbor & had fresh blueberry pie at the Quietside Cafe. We would then come back mid afternoon to put the littles in for naps. This was the time we adults could rest, read on the screened in porch, walk along the beach, or ride bike locally. The Cove is beautiful, and ever changing. Beachcombing was a big hit with all of us! After dinner in the evening, we went to places close by: Wonderland Trail, Twice to the Bass Harbor Lighthouse. And even one evening to the local school playground for the kids. We had the privilige of meeting the owners who were staying near by. One day Peter installed a DVD which we used in the evenings. Another time a screen blew off & he immediately replaced it. Coming from hot, muggy PA in August, we weren't sure about not having AC. We never needed it. There is always a wonderful breeze coming off the cove, the house was always cool & some nights actually got cold. We had to close windows several evenings. From the quiet, peaceful mornings, to the dazzling sunsets....and everything in between, Acadia & this cottage are truly magical! We would recommend this property to anyone & we hope to come back again some day.

OUR WHOLE FAMILY LOVED IT.

  • 5 of 5
This was our family's first trip to Maine.The cottage was great. We enjoyed peaceful mornings/evenings watching the tide go in and out on the Cove and the kids loved the ping pong table. It was nice to be away from the busy, touristy areas, but close enough to visit them whenever we wanted and to hike in Acadia every day. Echo lake is also close by for swimming on those hot days. We loved it!

CHARMING, COZY YET SPACIOUS

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I came to Maine for a long weekend in October to see the fall foliage and hike Acadia with our four (1 teen, 3 pre-teen) boys. The cottage was beautiful, nicely decorated, and very clean, with all the amenities. What surprised me most was how comfortably we all fit. It was cozy, yet we still managed to get our own space. The ping-pong table was a big plus for the boys. The owners, Joy and Peter, were very responsive, though our contact with them was minimal because the cottage provided everything we needed.

My only regret is that I didn't book the entire week... but we'll be back.

A PERFECT SETTING FOR ANY ACADIA GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was our third year renting on Mount Desert Island from the Cutrones, and our first year staying in Acadia Sunset. The photos of the cottage don't quite give justice to the setting on Duck Cove on the "quiet side" of MDI. The rolling green lawn down to the rocky cove coastline is magical, and sunsets truly are amazing from the porch. The amenities in the cottage are perfect for a few days or week-long stay. Everything is always clean and neat upon arrival, all furniture and rugs in very good condition. The bed in the master bedroom is delightfully comfortable, and the two upstairs bedrooms are charming. The kitchen layout is spacious and the downstairs ping pong table remains a hit with the kids every year. All of this combined with the excellent communication and helpfulness of the Cutrones guarantees that we will be back!

GORGEOUS SUNSETS

  • 5 of 5
We loved our week at Acadia Sunset cottage. The cottage's location is lovely, overlooking a tidal cove and perfectly situated to watch the sunset from the side porch. After a full day of hiking, biking or exloring the island, we raced back so that we could relax and enjoy that view. The location is close to Southwest Harbor and Bass Harbor so it was easy to get to stores or restaurants. And the cottage was clean and well set up for our traveling family (2 adults, 2 teens). I'd highly recommend the property for a nice summer vacation getaway.

LOVELY COTTAGE-PEACEFUL, LOVELY WATER VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
A true Maine experience! The cottage is more than promised. The pictures don't do justice to the water views. We were so pleasantly surprised when we entered the house-clean, open, and comfy. The stairs down to the private rocky beach added to the experience. My teens loved the ping pong room which provided hours of entertainment. They were also impressed with the WiFi...no need to completely "unplug". The sign of a good vacation is when you don't want to leave. That was the case after spending the week at the cottage.
