Sunset Point Cottage: Sunset Point, which enjoys the highest cottage views in Acadia, is a winterized cottage that is comfortable from April through November. There's electric heat in every room, plus a working fireplace. Start the day with a leisurely breakfast with blueberries picked just outside the cottage. Then, after a busy schedule of sightseeing, climbing, biking, sea kayaking, whale watching, or swimming, we recommend a quiet hike to secluded Aunt Betty's Pond followed by a sunset cookout.
In full summer season, as well as in Spring and Fall (May & June/September & October) Bar Harbor and the towns on Mount Desert Island offer a wide variety of experiences -- festivals, art shows, competitions, great food, and more.
