The main floor has two master bedrooms complete with walk-in closets, full private baths, queen beds and sliders that open on to the wrap around deck. We have a small bedroom with a double bed across from the main bathroom. There is a large foyer, open floor plan with kitchen, dining room, and living room. Beautiful cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors and granite fireplace.

The loft is complete with two twin beds and a cozy, tranquil space perfect for reading or relaxing, overlooking the living room and bay. (This can be changed into a king size bed with advance notice)

Walk from our deck to the shore exploring the beach or

spend your days exploring Maine's coastal towns or visit Mount Desert Island with its many villages and Acadia National Park. Opportunities are endless, including whale watch trips, boat rentals, fishing, swimming, kayaking, shopping, tennis, or make use of the many hiking trails.

Ellsworth is only ten minutes away, where you will find a variety of shops and stores. Trenton Market Place is nearby for all your grocery store needs. Our cottage is the perfect center point to begin your exploring regardless of your destination. (We are approximately 40-50 minutes away from Bangor, Blue Hill, Bucksport, Milbridge, or Cherryfield.)

If you need a break from the daily site seeing, cook your own lobster on the deck with our outside steamer, or enjoy steaks and burgers on the grill. These options let you enjoy your vacation to the fullest. Lobsters and fresh seafood are close by and maybe some special surprises too!

This delightful coastal community offers many dining opportunities as well. We keep menus on hand to show the local 'hot spots.'

'Please e-mail me for additional pictures!' Thanks! Wanda and Bill

About Wanda Pinkham

Bill is a small business owner and has always shown an interest in Maine's beautiful waterfront properties. We thought building rental cottages would not only be a good investment but they would allow us to enjoy them as well.

We have built two cottages since 2004 and have met wonderful people from all over. This is a great way to invest but also enjoy along the way.

Wanda Pinkham purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Wanda Pinkham chose Downeast and Acadia

Bill and I love the ocean and this property was the perfect location for our second rental cottage. It has a great view of Western Bay and Acadia Mountains. There is a lot of wildlife in this area and we enjoy watching the seagulls, ducks, deer and the chipmunks as they visit on occasion.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bill & Wanda,

Thank you so much for sharing your amazing cottage with us! We had a blast between hiking, kayaking, shopping and a ferry tour at Bar Harbor, we were always busy. Maine is such a beautiful state and your cottage definitely made our experience here in Maine even better! And the seafood here is wonderful! We couldn't have asked for more. Thanks again Wanda & Bill, it truly is a beautiful home!

Heaven Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I have never been on vacation at a more hospitable place. In booking Goose Cove Cottage, every question was answered and we arrived to an immaculate cottage. Wanda was very helpful and such a down to earth person who became a friend. She had blueberry muffins waiting, brought us lobsters and helped us find activites to enjoy our stay there. I would highly recommend this home and her other home to anyone looking for a friendly, clean, relaxing place to vacation.

Location, Location, Location....

  • 5 of 5

If that is not enough, add to that, the most beautiful views!! This house was the perfect place for three couples. We all had our separate spaces, yet were comfortable when together. The kitchen is well equipped and stocked with essentials. Wanda had blueberry muffins for us upon arrival!

The location was just right- a short drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, yet far enough to enjoy peace & quiet in a very serene setting.

Our only complaint - the week went by too fast!

Best place EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were last here 7 years ago when the kids were small. This is, bar none, the most beautiful, magical place to stay in Maine! Perfect location to visit Acadia & shop in Ellsworth. Wanda & Bill are gracious hosts and their house has everything a person needs. We can't wait to come back... it might not be until the kids are in college... but it is well worth the wait :-)

Excellent location, beautifully kept, RELAXING

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at this cottage twice now, it is so close to the park as well as lobster pounds, restaurants, shopping, and other attractions. The home itself is very spacious, modern, and clean. The view from the deck is a highlight, especially when the seals come into the cove to play. Our favorite activity is to lounge on the deck with a book and take in the scenery. The rooms are really roomy and well furnished. The property is secluded but not so remote you feel nervous about being away from civilization. Our family of 6 has loved our last two trips here, I'm sure we'll be back next year!

Beautiful and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Goose Cove Cottage is a perfect vacation place to be. The location is close to many attractions. The house is more beautiful than the pictures, so clean and organized, with a well equipped kitchen, lots of spaces for the kids to walk/run, and extremely comfortable beds for our party of 7. We are already looking forward to our next trip to our next Acadia/Maine vacation! Thank you Wonda!

Everything we could hope for and more!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with how beautiful the house was, and the view was wonderful! Everything was so well thought out, with instructions for everything we needed. We were thrilled to see blueberry muffins welcoming us, and were blown away by how well stocked the kitchen was! They covered every possible need, including night lights everywhere, and even flashlights at our bedsides. We felt so much at home, we didn't want to leave! We will definitely try to come back!

Goose Cove Cottage is 1 mile from crossing over the Mt. Desert Island Bridge. We offer beautiful, waterfront views of Acadia Mountains and the bay. Off the beaten path but close enough to enjoy all the activities Mt. Desert Island and the surrounding towns have to offer.
