Cozy three room cottage with one bedroom, right on the ocean with 320 feet of sandy beach and a 180 degree view of Frenchman's Bay and Acadia. We have our own sandy beach to enjoy a swim or relax in the sun. If you enjoy kayaking or canoeing you can put in right out front of the cottage. You can bring your own or rent one locally. With it's inspirational views, here is the perfect spot for artist or writer, or for a couple looking to share a special getaway. The early morning sunrise is spectacular. You may even catch sight of a moose or deer grazing on the lawn, or a seal resting on the ledge out front at half tide. Its a wonderful spot to view the mountains of Acadia or the large cruise ships on their way into Bar Harbor, or watch the 4masted ships on their daily cruise around the bay.
There is a general store a few miles away for last minute things, and the town of Ellsworth just 10 miles away with its antique shops and restaurants and supermarkets. There is a hospital and a library, a cinema, and a scenic train ride too.
The drive to Bar Harbor is 22 miles by auto, or you may want to kayak the six miles by water.There are many things to do and see in the town of Bar Harbor with its many unique shops, galleries and wonderful restaurants. While on the island make sure to visit Acadia National Park, one of the most visited national parks in the USA. It has lots of walking trails for novices or hiking for all ages to enjoy. Bring your swim suit and visit 'Sand Beach' on your ride around the park, and don't miss the show at 'Thunderhole' or maybe stop by the famous 'Jordan Pond House' for lunch or afternoon tea and popovers overlooking the 'pond'. And don't forget about the "other" part of Acadia National Park located at Schoodic Point, off the island..It is my favorite spot and less crowded. It is worth the drive to see the views and the thundering surf, especially at the upcoming tide or a particularly windy day. It's amazing!
Our cottage is fully equipped with linens, towels, dishes, pots & pans, stove with oven, refrigerator, microwave, electric coffee maker, toaster and washer and dryer.
The bedroom has a comfortable Queen size bed , a closet and a bureau for your use. The bathroom has a tub with shower. The living room has three comfortable chairs for relaxing and watching television with Cable. There are puzzles, books and a Scrabble game for your enjoyment.
A gas grill is available if desired, and internet service is available if needed. No pets and no smoking please.

We found this cabin to be very neat & clean and centrally located for all of our
adventures in Acadia and surrounding area. Although it rained a little every
day except one in our weeks stay, it did not dampen our spirits or even slow us
down. We ate lobster for the first time ever. Quite an adventure! We hiked,
whale watched and ate like Kings & Queens. We had a great time.
This location is stunning! Ivy and Dick are considerate hosts. The cottage had everything we needed. We enjoyed our peaceful stay, the fall foliage, and this uniquely beautiful setting. Many thanks and best wishes!
Quaint little cottage right on the water with a direct view of Cadillac Mountain. Dick & Ivy are incredible hosts, they have thought of everything you may need to make your stay comfortable, they even provide beach towels, camp chairs, and a cooler to use while you stay. We are so glad we chose this cottage as our vacation home for our first visit to Maine.
This was a surprise trip for my husband's birthday and he rated it up there with our honeymoon to St Lucia!! I have not been to Maine since I was a kid, so I was not at all familiar with the area. I chose this spot because it was close enough to the activity, yet far enough away. I'm so happy I went with my gut. Dick and Ivy have a gem of a property. They were incredible hosts. Thank you for the muffins and the tips. (Schoodic was our favorite spot and Ruth and Wimpy's was delish.) In Bar Harbor, Side Street Café and Geddy's were incredible!! But our favorite spot was sitting right out by the water where we got to see, among other things, seal and porpoise swim by. Thank you for an incredible vacation :-)
Very enjoyable apartment right on the ocean. Spent many hours just reading and enjoying the view from the point on the property overlooking the water. We were also close to Acadia Nat'l Park which we explored often in our 2-week stay. Hosts were always available and very friendly. The apartment was very clean and the description was accurate. Highly recommend for a couple looking for a quiet place on the coast of Maine.
My grandson and I spent a week, including July 4 holiday, at the cottage, and couldn't BELIEVE our good fortune. A private beach, ah-mazing 180degree views of water (right ON the water) and Acadia Nat'l Forest, and Cadillac Mountain. We combed the beach, played games, watched the fireworks over the water on July 4th, swam in nearby fresh water pond, had picnics, and could get to Ellsworth for shopping, and Bar Harbor for entertainment, in 15 and 40 minutes respectively. Private yet accessible, beautiful yet comfortable. And welcomed with yummiest homemade muffins! We....willl....be....back!!
This is the perfect spot if you're looking for quiet...It is very peaceful...Scenario is amazing...The cottage is clean, and Ivy and Dick are great hosts...Ivy had homemade muffins waiting for us on our arrival and were very tasty...Dick gave us the history of the property and it was very interesting...They gave us the privacy that we wanted , but were also very personable...We will be going back...Thanks again Ivy and Dick, always great making new friends...
