Located at the waterfront just outside the Mount Desert Island, Bar Harbor area is this charming
two bedroom log home. It has a fully furnished kitchen, front master bedroom with king bed and
second bedroom with two single beds. Porch on two sides of the house, front side is a covered
section as seen in pictures. The house includes washer/dryer, dishwasher, stove/oven, microwave
oven and gas barbeque on the porch. There is Dish Network satellite access and DVD/VCR capabilities.
Bar Harbor is about a 20 minute drive and the National Park entrance is about 15 minutes. There is also a free bus service available less than a mile from the cottage that connects to many of the locations in the Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park area. Sorry but no smokers and no pets.
Maine Lodging Tax of 8% will be added to the rental price. Cleaning fee and refundable security deposit required in addition to rental.
This cottage is beautifully maintained, clean and attractively furnished. There is a large lawn and meadow that leads down to a very large expanse of beach. The view from the porch looks over the lawn and water. The view from the master bedroom is of the water and a spectacular sunrise. You don't even have to get out of bed to see it The cottage is shining clean, with comfortable beds and a fire place in case it turns cool. While one can see the bridge that crosses from the main land to Bar Harbor island the traffic sounds did not disturb us. In fact, being close to the bridge meant that we had a very quick and easy ride to everything in Bar Harbor. We had a special treat/activity of going to Wild Iris Farm in Bar Harbor and learning how to drive a cart pulled by a Shire horse. (The kind seen in Downton Abbey.) If you don't want to drive a cart yourself, you can enjoy a ride in down town Bar Harbor in carriage pulled by horses from Wild Iris Farm. We had a wonderful time with lots of things, even when the rain came. The cottage was very cozy when the fog rolled in. This place is a must stay. One final thing. Sue is great. I left a number of things behind in the closet. She arranged to have her cleaning lady send the clothes off the very next day. I will definitely stay here when I come to Bar Harbor next.
My husband and I spent a week here in late August and fell in love with the Acadia area! This home has all the amenities, including a washer/dryer and was spotless. The kitchen was well-stocked and we enjoyed the privacy, yet convenience to Bar Harbor/Acadia. At night, the only sounds are the lapping of waves on the private beach. We even cooked fresh lobsters over the firepit down by the water. We intend on returning next summer and highly recommend this idyllic spot.
We had a lovely time during our stay! Sue and Gordon could not have been more gracious hosts and were readily available to answer any questions. The highlight of our stay was viewing the Perseids meteor shower with a backdrop of the Milky Way! Our 6yo and 4yo had a great time searching for crabs and shells at low tide and the house was a peaceful resting point for us between trips to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park! We had a lovely time!
The location was perfect. Just close enough to everything but we had our own secluded area right on the narrows.
The house was perfect size for our family of four.
We brought our kayaks and were able to easily drop them in the water. Make sure you bring water shoes! The beach is full of rocks and shells. We went clamming and had a blast. Nothing beats fresh clams. Make sure you wear shoes in the yard. The neighborhood geese visit every morning around 9-10 am.
If you are up to it, I would suggest waking up early (5:00 am) and sit on the porch toward the bridge to catch the sunrise. Beautiful!
In the evenings, we loved sitting by the fire pit, gazing at the stars and making smores. Nothing compares to the night skies in Acadia!
The house was fully stocked and had everything we needed. The house was clean. Our only real complaint were the beds. They were too soft and one of the twin mattresses kept falling off the box spring. We adjusted and it worked it out.
Overall, we would definitely stay again. Sue and Gordon were very responsive to all of my questions and the helped us with a small issue during our stay.
Thurstons! Best lobster BLT! Great value and lots of lobster...YUM! Bill & Ben's Ice Cream is great. The line moves fast so don't let it discourage you.
It was a great vacation. Thank you!
We like having the water close to the house. It was a very beautiful scenery from the porch. The long patio deck was really nice, because our granddaughter had so much fun playing on it. Thanks again
We loved this property and would not hesitate to stay there again. We've been in the area before and therefore knew we did not want to be in the thick of Bar Harbor for this trip. This house in Trenton was perfect. Gorgeous views and very peaceful surroundings. We loved the ability to get to either the Eastern or Western side of Acadia and Mount Desert Island with ease without having to drive all the way around one side or the other (going from the Eastern Side to the Western side can be a super long drive if you're camping at the campground within the Park). There's also easy access to Route 1 for a trip out to the Schoodic Peninsula or even out to the West Quoddy Lighthouse or Campobello Island. The house is in great condition and is very well maintained. The kitchen is well stocked with just about every utensil you might need. We enjoyed eating our dinners outside on the deck and there's even a firepit to use at night if you so desire. For those with families, it's definitely family friendly and our 3 year old had no problems while there. We absolutely loved our stay there and would absolutely consider it again should we come back to Bar Harbor and Acadia.
The cabin was perfectly situated to enjoy everything Mt Desert Island has to offer. It was so nice to be able to go home at the end of a day of exploring.
The cabin was clean and the spacious yard lead down to a neat rocky beach. The fire pit might be my favorite part but I love s'mores!
We would definitely recommend staying here.
LL Bean has a local free bus hop on hop off that you can take from a few places not too far away. They allow you to take your bikes as well and they drop you off in the park. You can Kayak or canoe right from our beach and there are several rental companies that deliver right to the house. We can sit on our porch and on a coming tide quite often see seals swimming up into the bay.
