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 Nov. 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 whitewashed plank walls. The planked 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 cottage has a heat pump as primary heat source. Space heaters are provided for extra comfort during early spring and late fall when temperatures drop. This is a seasonal cottage. Please prepare accordingly for slightly cooler than normal interior temperatures during unseasonal weather for these off peak times or seek alternate accommodation*

Incorrigible traveler. Always on the go for fun or work. Approaching twenty years working in the packaging industry. The job has taken me to various work sites and helps support personal travel through frequent flier miles and hotel points. I am always seeking new destinations off the beaten track. Preferences for green and healthy living environments with a fondness for dogs and other animals. "Oh, yesterdays are over my shoulder, So I can't look back for too long. There's just too much to see waiting in front of me, and I know that I just can't go wrong with these..." Changes in lattitudes, changes in attitudes - Jimmy Buffet
