This cottage slept 5 adults and 2 children comfortably. The view was amazing and we felt very secluded even though we were only 2-3 miles from all necessities. We spent a lot of time in Acadia NP which was about a 20min drive from the...More

About the neighbourhood
Near Bar Harbor and Acadia the cottage faces the sunset and Blue Hill Mountain across the inter-coastal ocean area of Union River Bay and Blue Hill Bay. A small set of wooden stairs steps down to a typical Maine tidal zone.

These are called Rockweed and are an important part of our coastal ecosystem.The shore also has mussels and nooks for beach combing and exploring. Private winterized cottage. Quiet--four hundre feet from the road. A year-round brook empties into the Bay on the south side of the property and encourages birds and other wildlife to visit water's edge.
A large deck and the balcony off the second-story bedroom are great places to picnic or for sitting still and...
