The space

The cottage at Little Island Cove is a delightful base for all of your Downeast adventures, or to just tuck into and spend some time getting away from it all on Frenchman Bay.

The cottage is a charming and beautifully decorated space for your stay. It is a detached building with peekaboo water views. The first level contains an open kitchenette, dining area, living room and a bath with shower. Wrought iron spiral stairs bring you to the upper level with an airy, open room containing a queen-sized bed and two twin beds.

A short walk down the hill from the cottage brings you to the Little Island Cove beach, with an island to walk out to at low tide and glorious views out to Mount Desert Island. Jump off the rocks, take a swim, hunt for seaglass, build a sandcastle, picnic on the island, relax in the Adirondack chairs, watch the lobster boats go by, go for a paddle in one of the two available kayaks...

The cottage is conveniently located near Ellsworth and many Downeast attractions, like Mount Desert Island with Bar Harbor, Cadillac Mountain, Sand Beach, Jordan Pond, restaurants, and all the delights of Acadia National Park. It is also near a more isolated part of Acadia, Schoodic Point, with its incredible crashing waves, beautiful vistas, picnic spots, and hiking trails. Rent bicycles and peddle around beautiful Sorrento. Dine in the amazing Ironbound, or experience a quintessential Maine breakfast at Chester Pike's Galley, both a very short drive away. The famous "Sunrise Rail Trail" provides miles of snowmobiling, cross country skiing or snowshoeing.

The cottage also comes with the additional option of breakfast in the gourmet kitchen in the main house at Little Island Cove. Boxed lunches are also available upon request.

Whatever you may choose to do while here, the cottage at Little Island Cove will be the perfect spot for your coastal Maine getaway!

Staying at Roddy's cottage was a lovely and relaxing experience. She made us feel entirely at home, even taking us into her own home when we needed to stay an extra day. Would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a relaxed break in the countryside.

Roddys cabin is lovely, Very spacious well furnished with everything you need for a short or longer stay and quite roomy. Roddys is a generous host, extremely responsive and her cabin sits in a gorgeous location, perfect to visit the park and surroundins. Highly recommend.

Easily one of my favorite airbnb experiences. Roddy's space is perfect. You cant beat the location, close to Acadia NP and amazing lobster rolls. The cove is a wonderful experience in and of itself. We sipped on coffee watching the tide come in and had an adventure on the kayaks. I highly recommend staying. Roddy is a beautiful soul and really was the cherry on top of an amazing trip to experience a New England fall.

This was a great place to stay. The cottage had plenty of space for my wife and I, as well as two young children. Having the fully stocked kitchen made everything so much easier for all of our meals. We also thought this was located in a great spot to drive out to Schoodic Point to view the sunrise as well as walking out on the island (which is accessible from this property) for the sunsets. Roddy responded to our questions in a timely manner, and was very hospitable during our stay. Thank you!

Roddy's cottage is a quiet and cozy retreat that accommodates all your needs. We really enjoyed being near Acadia national park, but also keeping our distance from the crowds of Bar Harbor. I would highly recommend it!

Great location for seeing Schoodic Point, but @ 45 minute drive to Cadillac Man entrance. Wished we had more time to enjoy the fire pit and the backyard view of Frenchman Bay!
