There's electric heat in every room, plus a working fireplace. Start the day with a leisurely breakfast with blueberries picked just outside the cottage. Then, after a busy schedule of sightseeing, climbing, biking, sea kayaking, whale watching, or swimming, we recommend a quiet hike to secluded Aunt Betty's Pond followed by a sunset cookout.

In full summer season, as well as in Spring and Fall (May & June/September & October) Bar Harbor and the towns on Mount Desert Island offer a wide variety of experiences -- festivals, art shows, competitions, great food, and more.

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were lucky enough to stay at Sunset Point for part of our honeymoon. We stayed a week and enjoyed every second. The views and the relaxing ambience were just what we expected. The cottage was very clean and well maintained. We decided to sleep in the living room and not one of the two bedrooms. We wanted to take full advantage of the fireplace and views of the mountain (very romantic setting).The drive to downtown was quick and the beautiful scenes of nearby hikes, bike rides and canoe trips were just a few minutes away. We took advantage of the fresh lobster delivery offered and had our very first taste of fresh Maine lobster in the comforts of the cottage(reasonably priced). Terri and Joe were great with everything. We truly had a great time. One thing to watch out for when driving to the cottage for the first time is to remember to drive all the way to the top of the mt. The first cottage on the left is not sunset pt. (woops) We can't wait to go back and enjoy more of sunset point cottage! Make sure to take advantage of the books in the cottage showing all the activities available. We really enjoyed the nearby hikes. Thanks again Terri and Joe!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Sunset Cottage. My wife and 15mo old son stayed a week and the place worked great for us! We also had a couple friends stay with us for a few days, and with 4 adults, the cottage was just a little snug but totally doable. Favorite part - grilling out on the porch watching the sunset, and making smores around the fire pit.

Idyllically situated cabin perfect for exploring the Bar Harbor and Acadia area

  • 4 of 5

A very happy week at Sunset Cottage with my husband and two sons of 3 and 6. The cabin is positioned a few miles from fabulous Bar Harbor and wonderful Acadia National Park. A week isn't long enough to explore this amazing area. The cabin is small but perfectly formed and we enjoyed balmy evenings on the terrace and a brilliant new Weber barbecue. Two comfortable double bedrooms and some excellent fans to keep you cool during the nights. Excellent shower and large fridge/freezer. We stocked up on provisions at Hannaford in Ellsworth (30 mins away) and there is also a Hannaford in Bar Harbor which is very good. Terri was very responsive when we needed help with the tv and it was helpful having a separate laundry.

There isn't wifi at the cabin which we hadn't realised - but no bad thing to have a break from technology for a few days. There is free wifi in Bar Harbor on the village green and at Beer Works bar/restaurant.

Thank you Terri and Joe for a fantastic stay.

Comfortable and Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Sunset point was in a great location for us because it was a short drive to a variety of points in Acadia NP and Bar Harbor. There were a few other cottages nearby but it was very quiet and peaceful.

The cottage had all the basics that we needed and was comfortable to stay in. It has a small stone fireplace that we used every night and was wonderful! One of my favorite things was that it is dog friendly. Our dogs enjoyed it also!

Nice Maine Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 3 had a wonderful time in Acadia with this cabin as our home base. One of our party had never been to Maine before and was very inpressed. This is our second time at the cabin. Everything was very clean and well kept. We did appreciate the new refrigerator with a larger freezer to store frozen items. I also appreciated the chimney starter for the charcoal grill. That eliminated the need for using lighter fluid. Very secluded and private area. It wasn't very cold when we were there (mid September) so we only used the heaters one night. It was nice to have the DVD player to watch movies in the evening. We didn't watch too much regular TV but it was nice to have reliable access to local channels for the weather. All kitchen items worked fine. We grilled steaks one night and steamed lobsters from one of the local lobster pounds another. Very close to Bar Harbor, trail heads and other points in Acadia National Park. All in all a very nice experience. We will be back!

Love, LOVE, LOVED Sunset Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Cottage is a peaceful little cottage/cabin on a secluded small mountain top that allows for a quiet, comfortable stay. The cottage itself is clean and well cared for. Communication with the owners/managers was helpful, timely and courteous. The location itself is within short distance of Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, but far enough away to not be caught in the crowds of these places. It is a delightful little spot with fireplace inside, comfortable bedding, bathroom, kitchen and fire pit outside. I would absolutely, without hesitation, stay here again as long as current owners are still in the picture.
