Cute Cabin for Two with Ocean View

Bedrooms 1
Space 380 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


About the property

One bedroom, one bath, sleeps two

Cozy and comfortable cabin for full week rentals with separate bedroom area, open kitchen/living area, full bath, and South facing deck. Large windows provide lots of light and views. Located across the road from the ocean with a great view of Swan's island in the distance.

Enjoy your own little getaway removed from the crowds, the traffic and the tourist traps. The harbor village of Southwest Harbor is about 5 miles from the cabin, where there are local shops, restaurants, boat tours and other things to do. Staying on the 'quiet side' of the island provides an authentic Maine experience. The national park trail at 'Wonderland'------a fairly level, easy, 1.4 mile round trip trail to a beautiful ocean side spot is 5 miles from the cabin. The Bass Harbor lighthouse is also about 5 miles from the cabin, as are many other scenic hiking or paddling spots here on the 'quiet side' of the island. When you are ready for a break, you can come back to the peaceful comfort of your own little spot.

The cabin is cozy but modern cabin with tiled floor throughout, a gas fireplace, and combo washer/dryer unit for your convenience. It has a nice view of the ocean, but there is no waterfront access. There is a south facing deck on the front of the cabin where you can relax and enjoy the ocean breeze and great view. Enjoy your morning coffee while listening to the lobster boats chugging around in the bay!

There is a small lawn area and mowed path in front of the cabin, but most of the property is left in it's natural state, in an effort to provide habitat for birds, bees, butterflies and wildlife.

Although exceptions may be made for small children under the age of 3, the occupancy limit of two adults is strictly enforced.

Please contact me with any questions.

About Anne Haynes

We are semi-retired, or maybe just tired, after spending 5 years building our modest dream home here overlooking Duck Cove. In the winter we spend some time in North Carolina where both our kids and our grandchildren live.

Anne Haynes purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Anne Haynes chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

This property had everything we wanted! A big barn for Bill to use, the cute little cabin, and a southern exposure with a great view! We lived in the cabin for about 5 years while we built our house in our spare time.

What makes this cabin unique

As we are in a rural setting, it feels pretty private, yet it is within easy driving distance of the National Park, fishing villages and the quaint charm of New England small towns. The sky on a clear night is filled with stars!

Beautiful and peaceful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful week in this cabin with a view. Start the day with the beautiful reflectons of the trees on the water and end it with with a glowing sunset. In between everything Acadia has to offer is a short distance away. The cabin is just as pictured and very comfortable. If the weather turns cool, you can cozy up to the gas logs in the living room.

When I return to Acadia, this is the place I will choose to stay.

Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited the end of September. The weather was great as usual at this time of year. We have been visiting the area for over 42 years and this was the nicest cottage for two that we have found! The cottage was perfect for us - close to our daughter who lives in Southwest Harbor. Everything at the cottage was perfect - everything you could possibly need. Anne was very helpful through the rental process and made sure we found everything we needed when we arrived. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Duck Cove and looking forward to a return visit.

Cozy cabin close to Acadia with beautiful ocean views and deck

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay with our pups. It was a great home base while we explored Acadia. The cabin is on the quiet side of the island which was perfect. We went to Acadia every day to hike with the pups and bike the carriage roads, and at night we could relax on the deck to sip some wine, grill and enjoy the ocean sunset. We were quite comfortable during our stay. I was impressed with how clean the kitchen and bathroom were. It made me feel right at home.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We're so glad you were at home in the cabin and enjoyed it! It's always nice to have responsible dog owner's that treat our cabin as if it were their own property, too. We hope you have a chance to visit again.

Awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the cottage we loved all hiking definitely enjoyed the peace and quiet at night . We are looking forward to coming back next year so much more to do much more hiking and exploring to do. Bar harbor had a lot to offer I am glad we went to explore down there but super happy when we got back to the cottage.

Beautiful cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a great place to stay to get out of the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor. It is closely located to Bernard and Southwest Harbor, which makes eating out easy. Everything was very clean, well-maintained, and the house has a great layout. The kitchen and bathroom are all well stocked with the basic necessities. Anne is also great to work with, and she has the house well stocked with brochures, books, and restaurant information. However, it does take about 30-40 minutes to get Acadia park entrances and Bar Harbor, but the quietness of the location more than makes up for the drive. There are good restaurants that are close to house as well, with Beals Pier and Thurston's Lobster Pound about 10 minute drive. I would highly recommend this rental for anyone looking for a romantic getaway close to attractions!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the cabin and the area, and thanks for the kind words. I would like to clarify for anyone interested, that although the "official" park entrance in Bar Harbor is a 30 minute drive, there are many beautiful park locations much closer to the cabin.
