Frederick & Aija Cahn purchased this cottage in 1961
There are the remnants of several piers on the shore as this property has been a summer retreat for years - since the 19th century! It is a beautiful, historic, and relaxing property with all the modern conveniences. You are on 12 acres of woods, streams, and a pond in addition to the shore. Close to the Acadia Park, Bar Harbor & Mount Desert Island, and Down East attractions but without the crowds and expense.
This property is unique - right on the water and clean and delightful.
Had everything we needed to cook and enjoy ourselves. Hosts were generous and helpful. Property was close enough to Mt. Desert Island for day trips to Bar Harbor and Acadia, but far enough away to feel secluded and private. Really, the perfect spot.
Adorable cottage is everything it seems to be on line. Quiet setting right on the water, peaceful with beautiful views. Very clean and well kept. The drive to Acadia is significant but to us totally worth it in exchange for the away from it all relaxed feeling the cottage has. The cottage itself is spacious but there is not a lot of drawer/shelf space to store food/clothing, etc. Wasn't a problem but worth being aware of, pack light!
My fiancé and I had a great time at this cottage. We had everything we could have needed & it was very quiet and peaceful. The drive to bar harbor was 25-30 minutes, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves despite the commute! The ocean at the property would have been a great spot to put the kayaks in the water if we had brought ours. My only complaint would be that the bed was not very comfortable, but a simple egg crate pad or mattress topper would solve that! We would come back again!
The cottage was clean and adequate for us. The setting was the best part. Its not far from Bar Harbor if you want the busy shopping environment. We enjoyed being here because it was quiet and right on the ocean. Its not a lavishly furnished studio, but you will be comfortable. The owners were very nice and helpful. Thx for a great stay.
We enjoyed our time at the cottage. The property is absolutely beautiful and extremely peaceful. The view is amazing. The cottage was well stocked and clean. It was nice to be outside of busy Bar Harbor and Acadia, but close enough with a short trip to visit for the day. We will definitely be back!
We had an amazing time here. The pictures don't do it justice. Great peace and quiet. Spent our days in bar harbor and acadia and our nights relaxing on the front porch. We were are southern and we're worried about no ac in the summer, it was not needed at all. The weather hit 80s during the day and at sunset cooled right down. Place had everything you needed. Very clean and we'll keep. Can't wait to come back.
