Completely renovated in 2018. Several popular Maine lobster pounds within walking distance of this one-room schoolhouse turned contemporary Maine Cottage. Easy access to Acadia, MDI, Bar Harbor via Acadia Explorer bus route. This pet friendly cottage has an open floor plan design yet maintains its classic Maine character. Views of the Acadia mountains with limited water views. Small stream towards rear of the property. Available seasonally May through Oct. Check out my other listing

The space
The space has been totally remodeled in 2018. The kitchen and entry area feature high exposed ceilings and have a boathouse ambiance with the painted exposed walls. The exposed walls continue into the living room. The living room features an old stone hearth made from local Maine granite (no fireplace or woodstove). Refinished wooden floors. All new plumbing and electric. Air to air heat pump for heating and air conditioning. Equipped kitchen with granite countertops, microwave, full sized oven/range, refrigerator and dual sink. No dishwasher.

*The living and kitchen areas of the cottage are not insulated. Space heaters are provided for extra comfort during early spring and late fall when temperatures drop. Please prepare accordingly for slightly cooler than normal interior temperatures during these off peak times or seek alternate accommodation*

Guest access
Guest have use of entire cottage except owners portion of basement.

Other things to note
House is conveniently located on Route 3, with easy access to MDI, Bar Harbor etc. Route 3 is a busy thoroughfare during the day 7am - 7pm. If you are very sensitive to traffic noise, I suggest my other listing as a more secluded, peaceful, yet still convenient option.

I am a dog owner, love animals and my properties are pet friendly. That said, pets are welcome only within reason. Please let us know your pets name(s), age(s) and any information that you feel that we should know in comments when making the reservation. We do not charge any additional fees but expect all guests with pets to demonstrate complete responsibility by monitoring and thoroughly cleaning up after pets both inside AND outside of the home. Any pet damage or excess cleaning required will be charged to security deposit. Thanks in advance on behalf of the housekeeper and future guests!
