Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 - 5)

Lovely cabin on beautiful shorefront property on Western side of MDI. This 5 acre property has gently sloping fields to a wonderful cobblestone beach with private deep water granite pier and dock. This rustic cabin consists of one great room with vaulted ceilings and a loft to accommodate additional sleeping. The cabin includes a bunk bed with the upper bunk single and lower bunk double and a sleeper couch and a loft with queen size mattress.

The beach is perfect for private lobster bakes, shelling and searching for sea glass or simply enjoying the incredible sunsets. The 150' pier with 24' floating dock will accommodate your boating activities along with a mooring suitable for a 50' vessel. The area is ideally suited for kayaking and sailing in the protected reaches of Blue Hill Bay.

The Southwestern exposure provides incredible views towards Swans Island and the outer reaches of Blue Hill Bay.

The villages of Bass Harbor and Bernard are approximately 1 mile away. There's great hiking along the shore or in the nearby National Park. An easy walk to the nearby bus stop provides free bus service throughout the island. The location is truly amazing and must be seen to be appreciated.

Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of space for small family with various sleeping options of bed on loft above bathroom and bunk beds my 4 and 7 year olds loved. Ben helped with many questions promptly over email and Gary was on site when we arrived and answered questions quickly via text. We loved cooking and eating on the beach and our time in Acadia NP.

It was a little bit of a hike to the far side of the park (with small kids) after some long days hiking, but overall we had a great trip and loved the cabvin.

The BEST place to stay on the island

  • 5 of 5

When I say that this was a dream cabin, I mean it. I road trip alone, so was looking for something practical and comfortable, yet secluded and scenic. This cabin went above and beyond.

The beds were comfortable, and everything in the kitchen worked perfectly. Having a washer and dryer was awesome...I used it a few times when I got dirty on hikes.

It's about 100 steps from the water, and having a private beach is absolutely incredible. I ended each night by having a beer on the dock. It was perfect. Also, you're on the "quiet side" of the island, which is really nice, as Bar Harbor can get NUTS during the weekends and summer months.

Ben was incredibly helpful and got back to me quickly. The price can't be beat.

I would HIGHLY recommend getting this cabin. When I come back to Maine, I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed this cabin. It was exactly what we needed. Close enough to shops, Acadia, and, restaurants … but far enough away to enjoy beautiful starry skies, read books, and breathe the sea air. If you are looking for a much needed rest, on the quiet side of the island, this it.

An amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this cabin! It is quiet and tucked away in a beautiful area of MDI.

The space perfectly suited the needs of our little family (2 adults, a 5 month old and a dog). All week we woke to beautiful sunrises over the water, ate breakfast at the table, and then set out to explore Acadia, Bar Harbor, Schoodic, and Southwest Harbor. We would come home at dinner time (baby goes to sleep early) and enjoyed playing cards in the peace and quiet. Then we would lay out on the nice deck and gaze at the amazing night sky. Make sure you explore the beach at different tides! We had a lot of fun looking for shells and sea glass.

The cabin had everything we needed and was clean and uncluttered. Ben was extremely quick to reply to emails and phone calls (and is super nice too).

I would definitely stay here again. I have already recommended this cabin to family and friends. Thank you for making our first family vacation a great one!

Simple cabin in extraordinary place

  • 4 of 5

Amazing vacation. The quiet side was absolutely the right choice for us. 15 minutes or less to some great hikes, and very close to awesome breakfast spots, library, groceries and bike rentals in southwest harbor... wonderful to be as far away from Bar Harbor as possible while still on MDI!! The cabin wasn't quite as secluded as we had hoped - you can see several neighbors across the open lawn, but it was very quiet, very cute, and had everything we needed for a fantastic vacation.
