Grab a book off of the bookshelf and enjoy a relaxing afternoon with a thrilling novel. Prepare delicious home-cooked meals in the fully equipped kitchen, featuring updated appliances. An eat-in kitchen table provides seating for 2. There is a formal dining room with seating for 6 and a wraparound sundeck provides stunning views of the surrounding water and breathtaking landscape with an informal dining table seating 8. Take a seat in the den and enjoy an unparalleled western sunset over the water that fills the room with golden light! Settle in for the evening in one of the 4 well-appointed and cozy bedrooms, each of which features an en-suite bathroom and ample space to store belongings during your stay. Looking out from the front of the property on the roof deck, views span across Summer Harbor towards Cadillac Mountain and Mount Champlain. Jordan Island is situated at the head of the Harbor where you can spot lobster boats in the mornings! -- THE LOCATION -- ‘Summer Harbor Cottage’ is situated on the water, with a sloping white sand beach and deep water for visiting boats. The private beach provides the opportunity to enjoy a variety of water sports, including paddle boarding and kayaking. It's also an ideal and safe space for children to play and explore! Throughout the summer months in Winter Harbor, check out local art exhibits, concerts, and performances at the Schoodic Arts for All center. Shop in town at art galleries and boutiques for Maine-made items to take home as souvenirs from your stay! Take a drive along the scenic Schoodic Peninsula, which holds a portion of Acadia National Park for spectacular views of Mount Desert and Cadillac Mountain. Visiting Acadia National Park is a must-do, as it not only features amazing hikes, camping, and bird watching, but it is also one of the first places in the country to see the sunrise each day. For a moderate hike, try the Ship Harbor Trail, which leads from beautiful evergreen forests to a rocky ocean shoreline. For quality time on the water and an unforgettable fishing experience, make a reservation for an Acadia Deep Sea Fishing Tour. The tour is great for the whole family and offers a chance to catch cod, sculpin, red fish, or even a mako shark! Few states can rival the excellent hunting in Maine with it’s abundance of wild game. You’ll have the opportunity to pursue black bear, whitetails, moose or grouse. There are plenty of lakes and marshes for hunting waterfowl and the coastline is home to world-class duck hunts. -- THE EVOLVE DIFFERENCE -- Evolve Vacation Rental wants your vacation experience to be everything you hoped for and exactly what you needed.
