I really do not know how to start this review. This cottage is extremely nice, secluded with outstanding views of the water with lovely sunsets. It does have 4 bedrooms with 2 1/2 bathrooms, family room and dining room. The kitchen is well stocked with plates, cooking supplies, cups and silverware which is amazing. In addition it was clean.

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 cottage. Bar Harbor was close as well but was a very busy little town that...

The vacation cottage was everything we hoped it would be. It was not fancy, but it was extremely clean and the kitchen was well-supplied, so we were able to cook easily. The location was the biggest draw of the property because of its view of the bay and the wooded, private lot and its proximity to Acadia, Ellsworth, and Bar...

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.
At low tide rocks draped in thick tangle of yellow-green and brown-purple seaweeds surround our pebble beach. 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...
