Overview

Mount Desert Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Charming and private lakeside cabin on Mt. Desert Island close to Acadia National Park, one of the most beautiful parks in the United States. Built in the 1940s by a local family, the cottage has been owned since 1968 by our family and was remodeled in the late 1970s by a master woodworker. There is an eat-in kitchen, and the living room has a fireplace great for roasting marshmallows. There is a private dock, raft and a canoe for your use. This is a unique retreat from the bustle of the connected world, a place to listen to loons and rest, relax, swim and boat. Each bedroom sleeps two; the master bedroom has its own bathroom with a claw-foot tub. The other bathroom has a shower.

There is a lovely area to sit outside under the pines, along with a screened-in porch with a stunning view of Echo Lake and the Acadia and Beech mountains. This is a beloved family retreat, not simply a rental property, and available June, July and September.

Why Claire Calcagni chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

Mt. Desert Island is one of the most beautiful and magical places I have ever been. The island is unique geographically, and is filled with beautiful hiking, walking, biking and ocean adventures. There is wonderful lobster and delicious blueberries.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cabin is a retreat from the world, peaceful

Perfect Acadia Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Mount Desert Island and I could not think of a better place to stay. The cabin was rustic, cozy and very well stocked with all of the day to day essentials. And the location was perfect, nestled among the many trails and a very short drive (no more than 20 minutes max.) to Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Bar Harbor and the entrance to Acadia National Park. We stayed warm on the cool September evenings with the living room fireplace and master bedroom wood stove and the wood pile, like the rest of the cabin was well stocked! The view of Echo Lake was incredible and we took full advantage of our own private dock to kayak every day. Thank you to Claire for being extremely accommodating and for providing quick responses to our inquiries. This will be our preferred lodging for our next trip to MDI!

mainely perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect vacation on echo lake. It was the first time our whole family could manage a vacation together in a long time. The cabin was perfect for our needs. We spent much time on the private dock where we enjoyed the breathtaking views and the beautiful loons that came to visit often. The photos of the cabin reflected the interior and exterior very well. We were very close to hiking, biking, and bar harbor. We felt very comfortable in the clean and well-maintained home.
