Charming and private lakeside cabin on Mt. Desert Island close to Acadia National Park, one of the most beautiful parks in the United States. Built in the 1940s by a local family, the cottage has been owned since 1968 by our family and was remodeled in the late 1970s by a master woodworker. There is an eat-in kitchen, and the living room has a fireplace great for roasting marshmallows. There is a private dock, raft and a canoe for your use. This is a unique retreat from the bustle of the connected world, a place to listen to loons and rest, relax, swim and boat. Each bedroom sleeps two; the master bedroom has its own bathroom with a claw-foot tub. The other bathroom has a shower.
There is a lovely area to sit outside under the pines, along with a screened-in porch with a stunning view of Echo Lake and the Acadia and Beech mountains. This is a beloved family retreat, not simply a rental property, and available June, July and September.
