This quiet, woodsy, oceanfront cottage with a deck could not be closer to the water! It's perfect for couples honeymooning or celebrating an anniversary, or just getting away. Families with one child or 2 small children have also enjoyed this quaint, tastefully decorated cottage. The path to the private beach is just steps from the deck. Preserving the 1930's cottage charm, recent updates to the property have included a gorgeous, large, salt water pool as well as comfortable and tasteful furnishings, bedding, and a very well accommodated kitchen. For family reunions, we have 2 other cottages with increased capacity on the same property...please search for Queen Anne's Cottages for more information. Rentals are by the week only: Saturday to Saturday.

We live in Bar Harbor year round with our 3 children, 2 dogs, and 2 cats. Tony is the owner of a computer software company; Chelcey is the owner of a floral and event design company. We feel lucky to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth, and are happy to share it with others!

This property is all of the above: woodsy/quiet/private, close to town (10 minute drive), super close to Acadia National Park (5 minute drive), and has amazing views of Frenchman's Bay!
We can spot on any given day: Bald Eagles, Deer, Porposes, Hummingbirds, Seals, and a variety of other birds and wildlife.
Three well-maintained, cozy, charming cottages at the end of a quiet dirt road offer a spectacular view over Frenchman's Bay, access to the beach, and a great jumping-off point for day-trips to Acadia National Park or around Mount Desert Isle. After adventures, this is a great place to return to for an evening on the deck or at the fire pit. We grilled, cooked lobster in the well-provided kitchen, took long walks along the shore, and enjoyed the autumnal smell of the piney woods. Local sites and restaurants were within easy striking distance. Pet-friendly. Owners are very responsive and friendly. We will be back next year!
The Water Lilly cottage was fantastic and the property was exactly as described. We spent a week here in September and were extremely happy. It was perfect for my wife and I and was in close proximity to Acadia NP, Bar Harbor and all the area attractions and restaurants. The property was very clean, well maintained and in a perfect location with great views of the water, especially at sunset. We were able to view seals, dolphins, bald eagles and sea birds of all types right from the comfort of our deck that overlooks the private beach and we especially enjoyed evenings by the fire pit area that overlooks the same, beautiful shoreline. We enjoyed hiking the many trails in and around Acadia and riding our bicycles on the miles of carriage roads. For first timers to the Mount Desert Island area and Maine, it was perfect for us and exceeded our expectations. We would definitely come back and would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing, comfortable location with great views, all within easy driving distance of the beauty of Acadia and Bar Harbor, ME.
The location is fantastic, the cabin is great for a couple seeking a quiet get-away but near enough to drive to anything you want.
Only complaint is low water pressure for shower, but that does not cause me to rate this less than 5 stars.
We celebrated our silver wedding anniversary at Waterlily and it was perfect. The cottage was very comfortable, nicely furnished and decorated and everything we could possibly need was supplied. There are awesome views from every room in the cottage with no curtains in the bedroom to spoil the view. We watched seals, porpoises, loons, cormorants and bald eagles from the deck and the sunsets were spectacular (as are the stars at night with there being so little light pollution). The rocky beach was fun to explore at low tide too.
The cottage is only about 10 minutes away from downtown Bar Harbor and the same to Acadia National Park.
It was so nice to be able to vacation with our little dog, so many thanks, Chelcey, for making this perfect romantic cottage pet friendly - she enjoyed hikes every day in the park with us.
This peaceful cottage and Acadia National Park made our anniversary super special. We'd love to return and stay at Waterlily again sometime. Actually, no....... I'd like to win the lottery and buy it !!
My husband and I fell in love with this place! We hope to return someday....this is our kind of vacation. Beautiful scenery, dog friendly, neat and clean, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park nearby...Waterlily cottage was perfect for us.We are thankful we had this time here!
Our second year to Queen Anne's cottages. Loved every second. Beautiful views, comfortable, sweet cottage, with Acadia and downtown Bar Harbor right around the corner. Our lives may be in Maryland, but a piece of our hearts definitely lives in Acadia. We can't wait to stay again!
Waterlily Cottage is located about 5 minutes away from the main entrance to Acadia National Park. 5 minutes beyond that is downtown Bar Harbor, with great restaurants and shops!
