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.

Roddy was so quick to respond to all messages. Her place was perfect for a family of four. The beds were super comfortable. We loved the view. We were able to cook dinner on the grill and then sit on the chairs facing Frenchman's Bay.

Roddy is an unparalleled host! The cabin is private, gorgeously sunlit in the mornings, and the shortest of walks to the most relaxing backyard seating area that overlooks a small cove that proved great for kayaking. To top it all off, we were surprised by Roddy's out-of-this-w…

Roddy was so welcoming. She gave us great local tips on where to eat and where to go. The space was perfect for our family and the kayaks and water front were great.
