Pointed Fir Cottage is an incredible place to spend your vacation! (The Sunday to Sunday rental week makes it particularly good for wedding parties) ~ You have never seen an A-frame with so much room and so many amenities! This 3 level cottage has a large 1st floor layout with a full bed and futon plus a 3/4 bath and kitchenette. It's possible to vacation comfortably without disturbing the rest of the holiday party on the other floors.
The second floor has a complete/new kitchen, a living room/dining room area with a convenient full bath. This bath has a separate claw-foot tub and shower with lovely sea glass accents. An exit to the large deck overlooking Cook's Cove is right off the living/dining space.
The 3rd floor has 2 bedrooms-1 with 2 twins and 1 with queen bed and a closeted 1/2 bath.
The feeling of the cottage is warm and inviting. The landscaping and location provide plenty of peace and tranquility. Back Beach is a short distance from here and makes a special place for picnics, sunning and enjoying the beauty of Bass Harbor ~
Come and enjoy Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park at it's best!
Beautiful house with plenty of room. Kitchen was well stocked and the house was clean. Short walk to the beach or Thurston's Lobster Pound (awesome place to catch the sunset or moon rise). In a quiet area of the island but close to points of interest. We enjoy time on the deck and the gas grill. I would highly recommend this house.
Wonderful views and quaint atmosphere. We enjoyed waking up to a lovely view from the deck. Very quiet and picturesque. The cottage provided ample room for all people to feel connected, but not crowded. I would stay there again.
We were vacationing w/ another family and were looking for a shared space that still offered some privacy for all. This unique A-frame was just what we had in mind, and was fully as advertised. The middle of the three floors is an open dining and socializing area that opens up onto a deck overlooking the back yard, while the lower and upper floors had separate sleeping quarters. The second floor kitchen is modern, sunny and spacious. Overall, it was a perfect retreat after long days of hiking and shopping. There were no unpleasant surprises from a maintenance, housekeeping, or customer service perspective, which made for a perfect total vacation experience. Thank you!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pointed Fir cottage! The house was very comfortable and well equipped for all of our needs. The cottage is set back from the road and private, the rooms are comfortable and very welcoming, and the porch (complete with a nice gas grill) looks over a lovely yard. Thurston's restaurant on the harbor is a short walk from the cottage, and Southwest Harbor is a short drive. We also enjoyed the quieter pace of this area compared to the busier Bar Harbor area.
The listing agent, Paula, at Dunbar Real Estate, was very helpful. Emails were answered promptly and our security deposit was returned quickly.
We would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone interested in exploring Desert Island!
Located on Mount Desert Island, home of most of Acadia National Park, the list of activities are too many to mention. Just seeing all the park has to offer takes days, plus the shopping, fine dining, museums, classes, live theater, and much more will fill your vacation days with so much fun! Favorites are The Repertory Theater, Reel Pizza, Thurston's Wharf, Café Dry Dock, Sips, Sawyer's Specialties, Mainely Meat, Bar Harbor Brewing Company, Side Street Café, Abbe Museum, Harbor House activities and fitness classes offered daily, etc.
