A retro kitchen and 5 bedrooms are vintage cottage perfect for your vacation in the spring, summer or fall. Take in the sights and sounds of Bar Harbor and Frenchman Bay, explore the natural beauty of Acadia National Park on your own or with its many Ranger talks and guided tours. Take a carriage ride or hike Cadillac Mountain. Relax on one of the many boating excursions or simply sit back and watch a world class cruise ship come in to Frenchman Bay. View the first sunrise on the Eastern seaboard from the Summit and enjoy the beautiful sunsets as well. This cottage offers a restful spot for relaxing on the enclosed porch with large sliding windows and wicker furnishings. A large private deck off the second floor master bedroom provides additional outdoor space for relaxation. A new backyard stone patio and grill is perfect for barbecue.

Travel on Mt. Desert Island / Downtown Activities: The Island Explorer is a free bus service running fixed schedules for 7 different routes on MDI in the summer months. One of those routes has a stop just across the MDI bridge in Trenton. Some buses have bike transport. This wonderful, convenient, congestion-reducing service is provided in large part by a grant from the LL Bean Company (the original store located in Freeport, Maine, north of Portland, is open 24 hours in case you are traveling from that direction. They also have an outlet store in Ellsworth, Maine, on the road to Bar Harbor.

Downtown Bar Harbor. Beyond the many interesting stores and restaurants and sights downtown, do enjoy one of the various boat trips out of Frenchman Bay. One of our favorites: Lulu's Lobster Boat with Capt. John. Very educational and enjoyable including a trip around the local seal haven and some lobster trap stops along the way. Also, enjoy cruise ship watching in Frenchman Bay as you stroll along the Shore Path or relax on a bench.

Acadia Park Ranger Talks and Walks: Acadia park ranger talks or walks: There are many of these daily and they are very enjoyable and informative. The topics range from geology to carriage trails to animals and birds of Acadia to history, such as the fire of 1947, to many different seascape or tidal pool topics. There is also a topic and slide show presented every evening at Blackwoods Camp and a hawk watch on Cadillac Summit at the appropriate season. We have found the rangers who present topics to be very dedicated to their subject matter.

Acadia: In addition to 44 miles of carriage trails, there are many opportunities for walks and bike rides of varying distances, and mountain hikes of varying degrees of challenge and effort with the ultimate probably being Precipice Trail. There are also Echo and Eagle Lakes and Sand Beach for water activities.

Jordan Pond: Don't miss the experience of coming here for the tradition of tea and popovers in the afternoon.

Relax and enjoy the beautiful view.

Golf on MDI - a Special Pleasure: Kebo Valley Golf Club -- very near Eden Center Cottage and a real treat and challenge to play. 8th oldest course in the US. It began as a race track and the terrain of the track is evident in the layout of the holes closest to the clubhouse. With the beauty and looming presence of Cadillac Mountain many greens have unexpected breaks and none more surprising so than the 17th hole. Also, from the vast sloped waste bunker of the 17th hole legend says President Taft took 27 strokes to escape. No matter how you play, unfailingly you will enjoy the day.

Northeast Harbor Golf Course -- a narrow, very scenic course threading through a hilly and wooded terrain on many holes. Short in length but challenging and very enjoyable for a strategy of positional golf.

Causeway Club -- Southwest Harbor. This is a pleasant, enjoyable, relatively flat 9 hole course with some water views. It does have a several very challenging holes and is recommended for a leisurely walk.

Perfect Location, super home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in late April, Early May. We stayed with 4 of us, me, my wife and 2 boys. This house is large and equipped for waaay more people. We were late planning and wanted to stay in Bar Harbor in a central location. We are really happy that we picked this house. The location cannot be beat. Walking distance to everything Bar Harbor. One of the features of the house has a really nice, glassed in porch, It opens up, but when we were there it was pretty cold and it was a great sun-room. Great place for coffee in the morning when it's freezing outside.

The house is well equipped and all the basic supplies and then some. Super cozy. Would love to go again and bring grandmas and sisters, brothers and cousins along. Jerry provided us with all the info you could possibly need as far as things to do and see. Neighbors were super friendly.

We grew up and live in the Caribbean, so Maine is far removed from what we are used to. This house has the character that we were looking for really made our experience one of immersion. We would not hesitate to go back and can only hope that we are lucky enough to stay here again. Thanks Jerry!

Owner's Response: Paul, thank you very much for your kind words. It was a pleasure having you and your family stay with us and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay and what Bar Harbor and Acadia offer. We especially appreciate your making the trek all the way from Sint Maarten in the Caribbean to Mt. Desert Island. By the way, we've been to Sint Maarten ourselves so I guess we've had an enjoyable exchange of venues of sorts!:-) We've love to have you return again -- thank you. Jerry & Rebecca

Wonderful owners of a beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately we had to reschedule our trip, due to Hurricane Irma. I must say that the owners of this property were amazing & so understanding throughout this whole ordeal. They worked w/ us in trying to reschedule, however our dates of availability just didn't coincide w/ house availability. We were so disappointed, as we were all so excited about staying in this beautiful & perfectly located home. The owners were quick to refund our money, in full, no questions asked & were even concerned about our well being, after the hurricane. Jerry also sent me so much helpful info about the Bar Harbor area, he helped us plan our entire trip basically & was very prompt in answering any questions we had about our visit! I will personally seek out these owners for any trip, in any area that we travel, if they own property in such area, I will book their property!!

Vacation Mode

  • 5 of 5

This house is decorated with sea related paraphernalia everywhere. It is such a fun atmosphere. Every convenience is available and warmly shared for your use and enjoyment.

These owners want their visitors to enjoy their house and have a wonderful vacation in Bar Harbor and Acadia. I would highly recommend this house and hopefully will rent it again myself. Wonderful memories were made with my grown children and my grandchildren.

Thank you again. The Roy's
