About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4) directly on shores of Blue Hill Bay

Pinelodge Cottage is a waterfront cottage with two bedrooms, living room/dining area, full kitchen and full bath. Bedrooms totally renovated in 2016 and now we offer one bedroom with a new queen size bed while the other bedroom has two twins. Step through the sliding glass doors in living room on to a large deck with comfortable seating and a spectacular view of Blue Hill Bay.

We own seven acres of land and 500 feet of bold granite and stone beach shoreline with a southwesterly exposure on Blue Hill Bay in the coastal village of West Tremont. Our location is exceptionally private, decidedly un-commercial, and yet convenient to the facilities of the surrounding towns including Bar Harbor. While we enjoy living in the relative quiet of the western side of Mt. Desert, the amenities of Acadia National Park are nearly at our back door.

Please come, relax & enjoy the quiet with us whether you need a lovely private honeymoon cottage or just a peaceful getaway. You will find our rates competitive and our setting incomparable.


1) We rent Pinelodge Cottage by the week, Saturday to Saturday.

2) A deposit is required within 7 days to hold your reservation. The balance including Maine State Sales Tax (9%) will be due upon arrival.

3) We enjoy pets enormously, but have found that pets are frequently unhappy in unfamiliar surroundings. We do have returning tenants who have allergies too. We regrettably have concluded that we can not accommodate any pets.

4) Our housekeeping cottage is now smoke-free. Smoking is not permitted inside at any time.

5) We do limit the number of people to four, including infants, no exceptions, please

6) Pillows and blankets are amply provided but we do ask tenants to bring their own sheets and towels. If you can not do so, there is an additional $50.00 fee for us to supply them.

7) Our cancellation policy is that we will refund the deposit if we are successful in re-renting the cottage.

I shall return!

  • 5 of 5

I love this place and have visited three or four times for a month each visit. I rented a cottage right on the ocean. The place was clean and well maintained. Kathy and Jay, the owners, were very helpful. I plan on returning.

Great Location on the Quiet Side of MDI

  • 5 of 5

We’ve been visiting Pine Lodge cottage for at least five years. We’ve never been disappointed since the proprietors, Kathy and Jay, take great care of the cottages and leave us to ourselves save only the few times we’ve needed to ask for something — usually a replaced lightbulb or something. Over the years, they have made many improvements. Seaside Cottages are the cleanest we have seen on the island.

Seaside Cottages are on the “quiet side” of Mount Desert Island, with easy access to town life and markets (Southwest Harbor), lobster (Thurston’s in Bass Harbor), pizza and sandwiches (Salt Meadow Farm), and great restaurants (e.g. in Southwest Harbor). And of course, there is terrific fresh water swimming, hiking, beach wandering and simple walking all over the island.

I like waking in the morning, making a pot of coffee, checking my email (that’s optional but the wifi is good), and reading books while I gaze out at a wonderful view over Blue Hill Bay. Afternoons are for hiking.

The Shields have provided great kitchen facilities and an inviting dining room table for entertaining other couples if one wants. And, of course, there is the deck for late afternoon drinks.

I love this spot. We'll be there again this next summer.

Exactly what we Expected! A+++++

  • 5 of 5

When the description states this is "Ocean Front"...that is so true, 30 feet from the deck, the "yard" drops off down the rocky coast to the Ocean! To wake up to this view everyday took our breath away. This cabin is stocked with necessities. And if you want them, your linens can be included, too. We used the heater everyday, and loved the gas stove in the living room in the evenings while reading and relaxing. Having Wi-Fi available was a plus, because the only service available on this point is AT&T. You have to drive up to Southwest Harbor, about 15 minutes, to get Verizon or other services. The Kitchen has what you need to create a nice dinner, and set a pretty table. The coffee maker makes it easy to rise in the morning and just look out over the ocean while having that first cup! We were just minutes away from everything, but loved coming back to our cozy quarters in the evenings. The owners are very kind, and straight-forward.

I am disabled, and use a rollator/walker, and sometimes a wheelchair. I loved the easy entry ... only 2 steps to get into the cabin. The parking is on gravel by the island side deck. The deck has the two steps up from the gravel to the entry height. The deck also hosts a grill and Charcoal bricks for cooking. We did eat a few meals in, mostly breakfasts. We loved tasting the local cuisine, and the price for lobster, crab and seafood made eating out so possible!

Cleaning before we left was easy, because all the materials needed were supplied. We will treasure these memories of our week vacation on Mount Desert Island forever. This cabin has 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed (very comfy) and the other with two twin beds... also comfy. Dressers and closets are available for your use during your stay. While there is no laundry facilities, there is a folding drying rack, so some hand laundry can be done and left to dry. Gott's Store, a local grocery, carries everything you'll need and only 10 minutes from the cabin. If you want a Walmart, one is located in Ellsworth, only 45 minutes away.

One suggestion... arrive in the daytime... it is VERY dark, and few street lights are around. Finding Seaside Cottages in the dark is near impossible. We were so thankful for cell phone coverage, and for Kathy's patience while we inched our way toward the resort so late at night.

Pinelodge Cottage was like a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I can't say enough about your place. - Like staying in a home - not a rental. The cottage was spotless, fully equipped and very comfortable. the deck that looked out to the ocean was priceless. Beautiful property and surrounding area. We hope to be back soon.
