This is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful locations on Mount Desert Island. Located in the town of Bar Harbor, on protected Western Bay, our cottage sits so close to the ocean that water laps against the deck at high tide. The property is immediately adjacent to the Blagden Indian Point Preserve. Many visitors come to the Preserve to see the harbor seals basking in the sun at low tide.
Please do not bring jet-skis or other motorized water-craft. The low-tide resting area for the protected harbor seals is VERY close, and these types of vehicles will disturb them.
Enjoy the 1970's decor. This is a family getaway for us and we enjoy keeping it the way we remember as children.:-) Bedrooms 2 & 3 are both lofts with privacy curtains.
The best view of the seals is from our deck. With over a thousand feet of shoreline, we have a beach for convenient kayak access as well as picturesque rocky ledges. Private tennis court is located on the property. Located minutes away from Acadia National Park.
