Property Description

Welcome to the enchanting Mount Desert Island (MDI) which is best known for the majestic Acadia National Park and the crashing rocky lined ocean. Many Acadia Nationacon l Park trails are within easy walking distance from the cottage! You can bike or drive to additional trails which dot the entire Mount Desert Island. Come experience the freshest clams, lobsters and mussels you will ever find!

This original Victorian Bar Harbor style cottage was built in the late 1800's, and is reminiscent of a simpler time long ago...Touches of memorabilia, roomy furniture and a large yard.

Enjoy the quiet back yard with picnic table, dining table and chairs. 2 grills. Walk to Somes Sound, (The only fjord in the continental U.S.) the bustling harbor with magnificent sailboats, lobster boats, and ocean activities. Visit the beautiful Thuya and Asticou Gardens, and walk or drive along Sargent Drive, which has one of the most beautiful views of 'where the ocean meets the mountains' you will ever experience.
L.L. Bean offers a complimentary 'Green' propane bus and they will take you all over Mount Desert Island, Ellsworth and even up to Schoodic Point, which is also part of Acadia National Park, (A not to miss location). The free bus is a great way to get all around the Island and surrounding towns without using your car! (Bus has a bike rack and you can bring Fido)

Kick back from a long day of hiking and relax in this 'casual' cottage.
Thatcher cottage is a very relaxed, comfortable place to kick off your deck shoes and put your feet up while sipping an afternoon iced tea or cocktail on the sunny front porch or inside living area. The cottage is almost all original. 'Casual' is the best way to describe our cottage and is a place to be totally carefree. The kitchen has a 1920's feel with the old cast iron sink, light fixtures, cupboards and workspaces.

(We not offer modern appliances)

If you are looking for a very laid back, relaxed atmosphere, then this is your place.

Enjoy the 5 minute walk to town, harbor and Sound and stroll around and enjoy our most unique shops, galleries and friendly people. Several street fairs occur each summer.

We have a fabulous new library with many summer/fall events, which you are welcome to enjoy and just a 5 minute walk from the cottage. There are many local activities throughout the summer and fall for you to enjoy. This is a pet friendly home, however your pup must be up to date on vaccinations and be on monthly flea/tick prevention. (A 75.00 per pet fee applies)

Glorious Week

Stayed the first week in August and the weather was Maine summer perfect. We were traveling with a 3 1/2 year old so all of our activities were child friendly. We found the house an ideal location to access the beauty of Acadia. We rode bikes into town, swam at the elementary school outdoor pool, participated in the children's activities at the...

One nightstand

This review is of a one night stay prior to my return to Michigan. The property was clean and bright. The fall foliage, especially the large maples in front, was spectacular, with bright red leaves on both trees and carpeting the lawn. The bedroom on the west side was bright and cheery with delightful appointments. The double bed was plush yet... Read More

Not a good experience.

This house has a very musty/moldy smell due to the dirt basement. The grass was uncut. The floors were dirty, the bedding was musty smelling, and everything was dingy. Worst of all, the house was infested with fleas. When we called the owner, she had someone come in to bomb the house while we were away for the day, but he couldn't go full strength... Read More
