The Cottage

Escape and relax in this beautiful, private cottage nestled in the woods on a private road overlooking Martin’s Cove inlet off the Mount Desert Narrows off the Atlantic Ocean!  At 2000 square feet, this oceanfront cottage is larger than most Acadia-area cabins and bungalows.  You can spread out!  Sited close to the water, the interior of the entire main level features rustic, exposed-wood beams, walls, and ceilings including two bedrooms and in one-of-two custom, Corian baths.

The two large main-floor bedrooms both have new queen beds (one an all-wool “Surround Ewe” mattress and pad in the master bedroom) and a spacious bath with over-sized walk-in shower includes a built-in bench for sitting and washer and dryer.   An elevated deck stretching across the waterside of the main level invites you outside for water views and relaxation.  The kitchen was recently remodeled with a craftsman style, and is fully stocked with kitchenware you may want to use, including a variety of spices and at least a few cooking ingredients.

The downstairs has the same, fantastic waterfront view and waterfront access as does the top floor!  It includes a second living/family room area, and a waterview room with, like upstairs, some counter space to sit and have your coffee and cocktails!  This room also has a ping pong table.  The downstairs can accommodate four more people, with an spacious, third, private bedroom with a Queen bed with a newer mattress, and in the second family room a twin bed with new mattress (both latex over memory foam) and a double futon may also be pulled out for more sleeping space, especially for children.   The walkout downstairs also features a brand-new, upscale full bath with another walk-in shower.   All bedding including linens and towels are provided (bring your beach towels, though!) Since the downstairs is walk-out and level around to the parking area, it could accommodate a wheelchair for assessibility, although the shower is walk-in (not “roll-in”) and there are stairs up to the main living area.

A telescope for stargazing (no “light pollution”!) and binoculars for World Class birding are provided.   We are not yet approved for resident shellfish license, so you won’t be able to dig for clams in our cove (it could bring you a ticket and fine!) but rest assured that many local fishermen besides lobster sell clams, mussels, scallops, and crabmeat including right from their homes nearby. Internet is provided but not cable television, but an antenna picks up quite a few channels.  It’s time to shut off the electronics, escape and relax, and perhaps READ!  It’s a reader’s paradise, especially in philosophy, social sciences, and natural sciences (with humanities, novels/non-fiction, and all levels of children’s books) with 1000s of titles available for your use culled from the libraries of two professors.
