|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Enjoy breathtaking views of Somes Sound and majestic views of surrounding mountains from Starboard Cottage. Less than ten minutes away you will find Acadia National Park where you can hike, bike, or picnic surrounded by the beauty of nature. If you are in the mood to swim in fresh water Echo Lake is only 5 minutes away where you can relax and enjoy the sandy beach. There are museums, movie theaters, aquatic centers and so many activities for a family, a couple or a solo day here on Mount Desert Island.
Starboard offers spacious rooms, tranquil colors, wood flooring, glorious views and plush and welcoming furniture. Kick back and relax with the luxury of our flat screen t.v.'s or simply relax on the deck and soak in the views.
With a large family room on the ground level as well as on the 2nd level you and your family should have plenty of room to spread out and relax. Kayak or bring your boat! Take a dip in the ocean (for the brave)! Fish from our docks or take a quick drive into Southwest Harbor and buy fresh seafood.
The entire family had a wonderful reunion, thanks in no small part to your excellent cottages. We especially appreciated the generous gathering spaces that Starboard provided. Plenty of couches for evening gatherings were also great. The bedrooms were super comfortable and offered wonderful views of the mountains and the sound. With the loons at night and the deer during the day everyone felt very much a part of the natural world. you have struck an excellent balance of civilized comfort and fantastic location.
Your arragement on the weatehr was spectacular as well :) and certainly left everyone thrilled with the location. The family from the West Coast (Inverness CA and Olympia WA) all agree that there was no where they knew of that had such an amazing combination of outdoor oportunities only minutes apart. We did it all: kayaking, biking, climbing and hiking amid the wonderful scenerty of Acadia and Mount Desert. At the end of each day, we came home to the cottages to cook and eat together. j Thanks for the extra dining room chairs you brought in for us; having room to share breakfast and dinner together gave us a place to talk about all our adventures and plan new ones!
We certainly appreciate all the hlep you gave us before and during our visit and would happily recommend your places to our friends. Ralph and I hope to be back to rent Spinnaker and have more time to appreciate the wonderful location you offer. We are not firm converts to the "quiteside" of Mount Desert.
Just got home last night from our first trip to Maine. Our stay at the Starboard was wonderful. First, the pictures on the site don't do the house justice. The house is huge with a ton of room for our party of 7 (with 3 small children). The basement with two bedrooms, full bath and a family room is an absolutely perfect area for kids to hang out and be kids. The kitchen has everything you would need. We made several meals and everything we needed was at hand. The deck not only has an incredible view but is great for dining. We loved that the home is just a short drive to most main attractions on the island but is in a nice quiet area to get away from the crowds. This house couldn't have been more perfect for our trip. Would highly recommend a stay here. And the kids loved having the pool practically in our backyard.
Enjoy the hustle and bustle of our quaint little towns or enjoy some shopping in Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Southwest Harbor or Bass Harbor all just a short drive from Starboard. You will also have your choice of restaurants from Fine Dining to Chinese, Italian, Bistros, American, Sushi anything your heart desires. Interested in marine life? Go on the Whale Watcher and take a peek at whales, seals, dolphins, etc. in their natural habitat! www.mcmrentals.info
