Leave the hectic world behind and come to Maine to relax in this quiet cottage in the woods near Acadia National Park. Just 10 minutes to Bar Harbor, 6 minutes to the Park Entrance and Information Center, and 7 minutes to the Hadley Point Beach for swimming, boating, and picnicking.
The master bedroom has a queen size, cushion top mattress and a hand-made lighthouse quilt. The room features nautical-themed decor and a private bathroom with shower and abundant towel racks. Relax in the sitting area or write a postcard at the desk. An overhead fan supplies a gentle breeze.
Light cascades into the second bedroom with its twin extra-long beds. Cuddle up under the quilts or write letters at the desk. The oak bureau and private closet provide ample storage. The adjacent bath with tub/shower also serves the living room.
The living area has a pillow-filled sofa suitable for sleeping, easy chairs, and a flat screen TV with Surround Sound, Cable, and DVD/CD player. A wide variety of movies are available from the Jesup Memorial Library in Bar Harbor. You can play with games and toys or savor a book from our library. Keyboard players can make acoustic music on the 1860s vintage antique reed organ.
The living area opens to the kitchen with its refrigerator/freezer, electric stove and oven, separate convection microwave, and large sink with dishwasher. Chefs will enjoy the full supply of pans, pots, (including a lobster pot!), cooking utensils, dishware, flatware, coffee pot, and ash picnic basket. As you sit at the oak dining table, sipping your morning coffee or tea, looking out the picture window, you may spot birds, squirrels, or an occasional deer or fox. You may prefer taking breakfast on the front porch before heading out for a day of hiking in the Park or sightseeing and shopping in the quaint towns of Mount Desert Island.
In the evening, enjoy rocking on the front porch or solving jigsaw puzzles at the game table. There you may catch the lovely scent of balsam fir and drink in the exquisite tranquility of Maine at its best.
