Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, dock with boats, deck with grill

Number 3 is a second story 2 bedroom apartment, 28x32. It has a full bath w/ tub/shower combination, electric heat, and a range and refrigerator. There is a washer and dryer and 1/2 bath on the ground floor. Storage only on the first floor. Great for bikes if you bring some. The spacious living area with vaulted ceiling has a queen sleep sofa. The living area opens onto a deck through sliding glass doors. An electric grill is provided. The shore of Bass Harbor is just a few feet away where we have a row boat for our tenants use. Ask about our tandem kayak. It may be available at no additional charge.

From this cozy space in an authentic fishing village visit Acadia National Park, Somes Sound(the only fjord on the east coast) and lots of shops, museums, and galleries in our 3 island towns. Countless artists and artisans are drawn to the region by its natural beauty. Out door adventures abound in this rugged landscape. Boat cruises, hiking, biking, and sea kayaking will reward you with spectacular scenery and views of wildlife.

We enjoyed our stay at this vacation home. There was a little confusion on our part due to the property photos and our belief that we would be right on the water. We stayed at property #3 which is not on the water but we could see the water from the balcony over the other properties. There are LOTS of steps up to the property. Not a problem for us and actually great exercise but I think it should be listed. The property owners were very responsive and actually stopped to say hello. The location is PERFECT! Close enough to Acadia National Park, which we visited daily. Bass Harbor, Bernard and Northwest Harbor all had great locations for dinner or lunch too. We walked each morning before heading out for the day (we took advantage of the 4:30 sunrise. Doesn't rise til 6:30 or so in Texas) and the wonderful cool temperatures.

We would highly recommend this vacation home and visit again!
