Welcome to the enchanting Mount Desert Island (MDI) which is best known for the majestic Acadia National Park and the crashing rocky lined ocean. Many Acadia National Park trails are within easy walking distance right from the cottage! You can bike or drive to additional trails which dot the entire Mount Desert Island.
This Victorian cottage is an old Bar Harbor style built in the late 1800's, and is reminiscent of a simpler time long ago...Warm touches of memorabilia and antiques and a nice large yard.
Enjoy the roomy, quiet back yard with picnic table, dining table and chairs. 2 grills for outdoor living. Walk to Somes Sound, (which is the only fjord in the continental U.S.) the bustling harbor (with magnificent sailboats, lobster boats, and more). Visit the beautiful Thuya and Asticou Gardens, and walk along Sargent Drive, which has one of the most beautiful views of where the ocean meets the mountains you will ever experience.
L.L. Bean offers a free 'Green' propane bus and they will take you all over Mount Desert Island, Ellsworth and even up to Schoodic Point, which is also part of Acadia National Park, and you should be sure to visit. This is a great way to get all around the Island and surrounding towns without using your car! (Bus has bike rack)
Kick back from a long day of hiking and relax in this casual cottage. This cottage is a relaxed, comfortable place to kick off your deck shoes and put your feet up while sipping an afternoon iced tea or cocktail on the sunny front porch or inside living area.
Enjoy the couple of minute walk to town and stroll around and enjoy our most unique shops, galleries and friendly people.
We have a wonderful new library with many summer events, which you are welcome to enjoy. There are many local activities throughout the summer and fall for you to enjoy.
This is a dog friendly home, however your pup must be up to date on vaccinations and use monthly flea/tick prevention.
There is a leash law in Maine. Cleaning up after your pup is expected both on the property and when walking in the Park and in all towns.
HOME IN FAMILY SINCE IT WAS BUILT (1887) My father grew up in this house and I spent summers there with my grandmother until I was married. I have owned it since she passed away in 1979. I had antiques business in town for total of 22 years and now spend the winter in Florida.
It has a wonderful location and is close to the water, which you can see when the foliage is off the trees in Spring, winter and fall from the kit., dining rm. and ft. bedrm. Best of all, it is my family home!
Alot of attention given to details. such as bedding, towels and designer pillows, original art, and privacy, generation of family memorabilia, Maine history within.
