Mount Desert Island is a small island that is located off the coast of what is referred to as 'downeast' Maine where hundreds of coastal islands lay amidst the swells of the Northern Atlantic Ocean. The panoramic view from the summit of Cadillac Mountain is where the first light of dawn touches the American continent each morning. This beautiful and unique island offers spectacular scenery and is host to an infinite display of natural wonders along its rocky shoreline, sandy beaches, granite summits, and mountain-framed lakes. Acadia National Park, the jewel of downeast Maine, presents the visitor with a gift of unparalleled beauty. Tall coastal mountains tower over plush cathedral forests of spruce and pine trees. Inland the meadows and marshes, lakes and streams meander through fields of wildflowers and miles of groomed carriage paths and hiking trails. The island's rich history as both a working fishing community and a busy tourist destination, allows the visitor to experience both the serenity of nature and the attractions and activity that the island community offers.
The Corson Cottage is located near the fishing village of Southwest Harbor on the quiet side of the island, while only 12 miles from the busy and popular tourist area of Bar Harbor. The cottage is near local shopping and restaurants and only minutes from the entrance to Acadia National Park. Shore dinners of fresh Maine Lobster and Blueberry pie abound. Also nearby are several beautiful lakes where Kayaking and Canoeing are readily accessible as well as many spectacular hikes along well-kept trails that range from a 'walk in the park' to challenging climbs. There is a public golf course within walking distance from the cottage
