Visiting Acadia National Park and Downeast Maine puts you in the middle of a widely diverse culture which, when combined with the unique features of our private getaway, permits a once in a lifetime opportunity. For instance, start your day with a vigorous hike through the woods of our eco-diverse forest (first growth pine to later growth hardwoods) then cool off with a swim in the quarry. After a quick lunch, board your Bar Harbor based whale watching vessel. Have a nice meal at a local restaurant and enjoy the evening with live entertainment--choose improv comedy, repertory theater or live music. And don't miss horse-drawn carriage rides in Acadia Park; singing old sea chanties while sailing a four masted schooner; touring Mount Dessert Island on one of Ollie's Trolleys; climbing a mountain; cycling Acadia's trails; kayaking one of the many local 'ponds.' Or relax on our wharf while watching an eagle hunt dinner then enjoy your own fresh caught lobster cooked in the cabin's pot

Quiet, cozy cabin with rough beds and dirty floors
As others have mentioned the dirty floors and lack of window dressings were a bit odd. Never saw the owner the entire time and thankfully the phones worked when we got there and she instructed us on how where to locate the breaker box.
The "bed" was awful. Nothing more than a mattress topper on some wood. Should have tried the futon and would have if we had elected to stay the duration of our trip but due to not getting any sleep and back pain we just got a hotel for the second part of our stay.
Very quiet, quaint spot
The cabin was as pictured and described. Perfect for one or two, I do agree with an earlier review that it would be nice if the linens/towels were updated, but the cabin is tidy & clean and I had no issues. I would recommend the property.
Perfect for a family of 4
It is very cute cottage. It just needed new pillows and linens.
Love the whole experience cottage was perfect beach right there so secluded and not far from bar harbor. Didn’t wanna leave. Look forward to going back
A gem in the woods.
It was our 30th anaversary and a surprise for my wife. Verry quite and secluded. A short drive to Bar Harbor. 2 min. Walk to the water. Nottie pine and a cute little cubby for your evening get away
Cozy cabin in the woods
The house was very cozy. We wanted a secluded cabin in the woods and that's what we got! It was nice to "unplug" and vacation without WiFi or TV. The location was perfect with the lake being a short walk. We took our dogs out on the kayaks and it was lovely. The road was very quiet with there only being one other house on it, I didn't have to worry about walking my dogs with cars driving up and down the road. The bed was nice and comfy, I loved sleeping in the cubby hole. We tried out the Ruth and Wimpys restaurant that was recommended in joasha's book and it was the best lobster we had on the whole trip!
Get really away from the hustle, bustle and traffic of Acadia, America's most visited National Park by relaxing in this comfortably charming, bright 'in the woods' cottage on beautiful Taunton Bay. Situated on a 36 acre peninsula, you'll be surrounded by water whenever you go just a few steps East, South or West. Explore trails that wind through the property or sit and relax on the great stone wharf where ocean going sailing ships used to pick up locally quarried granite for delivery to Boston, New York or Washington D.C. Swim in our fresh water quarries or off the wharf in the salt water bay. Launch your kayak or canoe from our ramp. Visit the seals or bird watch everything from chickadees to eagles. Visit Acadia National Park and watch the sun rise from the top of Cadillac Mountain, the first place in the U.S. the sun hits every morning, or savor a freshly made popover on the lawn of the Jordan Pond House. After a day of sightseeing, relax with a good book on the front porch.
