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.

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 Tremont
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!

The Quiet-side of the Island
Having grown up on the Island (Mount Desert island), I have taken my family back to Maine quite a few times. This year was different, as we no longer had a family home to visit. Finding this special little cabin that Bill and Anne Haynes were renting was just the right ticket. We were close to almost anything we needed whether to enter into Acadia National Park or visiting old haunts that I knew as a kid growing up on the Island.
We were also very pleased that Bill and Anne allowed us to bring our big (male) Black Lab Thor. Thor just loved the open space around the cabin and especially the cool salt air coming off Duck Cove. Our visit was in October, so the seasons were changing to cooler Fall weather and the autumn colors starting to get brighter. We were able to do everything we wanted despite the massive road construction on the Bar Harbor side of the Island. All in all, Bill and Anne's cabin was the perfect match for our trip. We also really enjoyed having the gas fireplace to warm things up in the morning or evening. Many thanks from this Island Boy, as we hope to stay again on our next visit back to MDI.
Thanks so much, you two, for the praise! We are glad you were comfortable and had everything you needed. It would be our pleasure to have you and Thor if you decide to return. Nice people such as you make having a vacation all rental fun!
All Around Wonderful
Perfect cabin for two with a great ocean view. Clean, fresh and comfortable. Great quiet location. Would return any day!!
Lovely stay on the quiet side of the island at Southwest Harbor!
Perfect, comfortable cabin for 2 with everything you’d need for a great week at Acadia. Everything at the cabin and venue are clean, well maintained and exactly as seen in the pictures. Anne was very responsive and gracious host. The only downside is traffic on the road between the cabin and Duck Cove. Fortunately, it’s less than other parts of the island & lessens significantly at night. Thanks, Anne, for sharing your cabin!
Beautiful cottage, breathtaking view, and excellent location to see the sites. We enjoyed returning to the quiet side of MDI each night and having great restaurants in the area to choose from!
Everything was perfect. Quiet side of the Island but still close enough to be able to enjoy everything that Acadia and Mount Dessert Island has to offer. We had a wonderful time and looked forward to returning to the cabin at the end of the day to relax and enjoy the view from the deck.
Perfect cabin for a relaxing visit with places nearby to hike and enjoy an authentic Maine visit.
This lovely cabin is wonderful in so many ways and we felt welcomed from our first moments with nice touches from the owner including a welcome sign and paw prints made from stones and shells on the porch. We had everything we needed and Anne was such a gracious host. The "quietside" is the perfect place to enjoy Maine and escape from the crowds. Anne's library of books helped us learn about the area and she gave great suggestions for things to do nearby. Seal Cove is a treasure! My husband and I are so thankful for the week we had there with our dogs and we are already talking about our next visit.
Thanks so much for this nice review! It always makes me happy to hear that vacationers have enjoyed the cabin. It's a pleasure to meet nice people such as yourselves. We like to interact and answer questions, or leave people to their privacy as they prefer.
Bar Harbor is approximately 18 miles from the cabin.
