The SpaceOur cottage is a WEEKLY RENTAL ONLY from Saturday to Saturday from May thru October. Crew's Quarters sits on the shore of Bass Harbor with amazing views of this quaint working harbor. Over the last few winters the cottage has developed a slope that is exasperated by the optical illusion you are slipping into the ocean because of the closeness of the water. If this little quirk doesn't bother you please come and enjoy. Lobster boats, birds and the ocean waves greet you. Enjoy the sites and sounds of Mount Desert Island, Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Crew's Quarters has two bedrooms, one with a full size bed and the other with twin beds, a full kitchen, bathroom and living room/dining area. Guest AccessWe have a dock that is available July 1st until Mid October Interaction with GuestsWe want you to enjoy your vacation without any interruption from us! If you have any issues our numbers will be available upon booking, feel free to contact us. Getting AroundThe Island Explorer Bus service goes by the property.

The SpaceThis architect-designed, cozy cottage on Mount Desert's quiet side has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6 comfortably, with full kitchen and washer/dryer. Located on Mitchell Cove in Bernard, 10 minutes south of Southwest Harbor—you get the best of both worlds: the quiet and privacy to enjoy your family's time together, and immediate convenience to all the attractions of the island. Grocery, library, restaurants, water sports (canoeing, sailing, motor-boating, kayaking), swimming, and miles and miles of well-maintained hiking trails up some of the country's most beautiful and accessible mountains are within a 15-20 minute drive. And just a minute's walk down the property to Mitchell Cove brings you to half a mile of secluded and undeveloped private shingle beach. A home-base for your expeditions across the island; and a light-filled, snug residence for your family's together-time during your stay. The master bedroom is on the ground floor; two bedrooms are upstairs, one with two twin beds, the other a single. A bath with shower is on each floor. The cottage has all modern appliances; has its own well-water and lots of hot water. Wi-Fi internet service is provided. A wide deck off the front balances the indoor and outdoor spaces and is great for sitting in the sun; a secondary deck off the kitchen has a gas-powered grill that's ready for use. In the main floor's living room, a cathedral ceiling beautifully shows off the grain and line of the golden pine boards. A wood-burning stove keeps the whole house warm on cooler evenings (many summers you won't need it much), and provides a natural center to game-playing, reading, or watching TV. The cellar has an Old Town canoe and paddles, which you're welcome to take down to the Cove. The house is very much more than the sum of its parts. It's situated on the site of the old farmhouse that farmed the Mitchell Cove area in the 19th century, when the land was all open meadows. You'll notice that it's the 'right' spot for a house—up on a little rise, with a full cellar dug into the side of the hill, and a big green lawn spreading down toward the Cove. Past the lawn, and the old apple tree, there is still open meadow to the front of the house; but now pine trees hedge off the few neighboring houses, which are distant and completely hidden from view. To the south and west is Lopaus Point and thick pine forest. The house is nestled into the corner between the old meadows and the newer forest—you're very much in your own world without being in any way constricted. Open air, wide space, freedom to move—and the elegant concentrated space of the house—that's the feel of being here. You'll also notice lots of little architectural details that make spending time in and around the house a real joy. The house was designed specifically to capture and display the best virtues of Maine's coastal summer climate. It encourages you to experience the best of what it's like to be here. During the long summer days, it's light-filled and airy. You'll want to throw open the doors and let the cooling ocean breezes waft through. Take your work out on the deck; watch the kids play soccer on the grass. Or wander down to the Cove. At nights, it's a supportive, cozy enclosure that brings everyone together around the wood stove. Cook up a seafood feast. Gather round a board-game. Curl up and watch a movie on the TV. The house works so well in part because the floorplan is both open and separated. Communal activities will center on the first floor, where the kitchen and living room flow into one another and keep everyone connected. But if you want to get some work done, or the kids need to start a summer-reading project, or someone just wants to be on their own, you can head upstairs, close the door, and concentrate. The place is full of memories of people doing exactly this for fifty years. I'm sure you'll quickly find your own way of being right at home. Guest AccessGuests have the cottage to themselves. Interaction with GuestsA caretaker who lives 10 min away will be your on-site contact. Feel free to contact him or owner at any point during your stay. The NeighborhoodIt's hard for me to summarize how much Mount Desert, and this house on it, mean to me. The place is a center of my sense of myself and my family. I grew up in learning to know this place; coming back here is communicating with the traditions, memories, and histories that have generated the habits and outlooks by which I know who I am. It really is the case that the *place* binds and holds the spirit together. More practically, I can't think of any other place where it's possible to do so much that's so rewarding so easily. Mount Desert is just *made* for vacationing--for serial enjoying and adventuring in reasonable, daily, family-sized chunks. Everything you'd ever want to do is within twenty or thirty minutes of your home-base; and it's all completely authentic and accessible. We've spent weeks hiking day after day, non-stop, hopping all over the island, never exhausted, always eager for the next pondside vista or rocky scramble or heart-wrenching, ocean-yearning view from the top. Other years we went slower, and spent lots of time tossing stones at the cove, and reading books by the fire, or doing puzzles at the card-table. It's hard to say what's more wonderful: breaking through the treeline atop Sargent Mountain, or wrapping yourself in the fog on the tide-stripped rocks of Mitchell Cove, or reading by the fire with the rain dripping down the pine boughs. The best visits are when you do all three! As a parent of two children, quite young when they first visited, I really appreciated how the activities could be scaled to the age, energy, and interests of the group. It was fantastic at first to have Wonderland available, to make a simple out and back over flat land with an eight and a five-year-old. Or, when they were feeling whiny, to take the Jordan Pond loop trail, with popovers waiting at the end. Now it's fantastic to string mountains together and come home at sunset. Getting AroundA car is very useful. The Island Explorer shuttle bus is free and has routes covering most of Mount Desert and Acadia Park. There's an Explorer stop right in Bernard--about 5 minutes down the road from the property. Other Things to NoteRentals are normally from Saturday (4 PM check-in) to Saturday (10 AM check-out). 7-night minimum stay. Please let us know what you have in mind.

A wide deck off the front balances the indoor and outdoor spaces and is great for sitting in the sun; a secondary deck off the kitchen has a gas-powered grill that's ready for use. In the main floor's living room, a cathedral ceiling shows off the grain and line of the golden pine boards. A wood-burning stove keeps the whole house warm on cooler evenings (many summers you won't need it much), and provides a natural center to game-playing, reading, or watching TV. The cellar has an Old Town canoe and paddles, which you're welcome to take down to the Cove. The house is very much more than the sum of its parts. It's situated on the site of the old farmhouse that farmed the Mitchell Cove area in the 19th century, when the land was all open meadows. You'll notice that it's the 'right' spot for a house—up on a little rise, with a full cellar dug into the side of the hill, and a big green lawn spreading down toward the Cove. Past the lawn, and the old apple tree, there is still open meadow to the front of the house; but now pine trees hedge off the few neighboring houses, which are distant and completely hidden from view. To the south and west is Lopaus Point and thick pine forest. The house is nestled into the corner between the old meadows and the newer forest—you're very much in your own world without being in any way constricted. Open air, wide space, freedom to move—and the elegant concentrated space of the house—that's the feel of being here. You'll also notice lots of little architectural details that make spending time in and around the house a real joy. The house was designed specifically to capture and display the best virtues of Maine's coastal summer climate. It encourages you to experience the best of what it's like to be here. During the long summer days, it's light-filled and airy. You'll want to throw open the doors and let the cooling ocean breezes waft through. Take your work out on the deck; watch the kids play soccer on the grass. Or wander down to the Cove. At nights, it's a supportive, cozy enclosure that brings everyone together around the wood stove. Cook up a seafood feast. Gather round a board-game. Curl up and watch a movie on the TV. The house works so well in part because the floorplan is both open and separated. Communal activities will center on the first floor, where the kitchen and living room flow into one another and keep everyone connected. But if you want to get some work done, or the kids need to start a summer-reading project, or someone just wants to be on their own, you can head upstairs, close the door, and concentrate. The place is full of memories of people doing exactly this for nearly 50 years. I'm sure you'll quickly find your own way of being right at home.

                              Paul's Cottage is the year-round home where my father-in-law spent his retirement years. Built to resemble a New England barn, the spacious pine-paneled living room features a cathedral ceiling and a granite fireplace that is likely the largest you have ever seen! 3 Bedrooms – The three bedrooms will comfortably sleep five people including infants. Due to the relatively small size of the loft bedrooms we limit the number of guests to 5. There is a bedroom with a queen-size bed and full bath on the first floor. Over the kitchen and bedroom is a loft area with a full bath and two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed (see photo), the other with a small twin and sitting area with a skylight (see photo). Our newly renovated kitchen is well equipped for cooking and serving, with amenities including gas stove, microwave, dishwasher and breakfast table. Mealtime is always more enjoyable with a view of the water. You can sit in front of the window in the dining area or simply go outside to use the picnic table on the deck. In the corner of the living room next to a window with a waterfront view, the landlady (who lives next door) insisted on having a game table. If you challenge her to a game of scrabble, she probably will be up for it. A separate utility/storage room on the main level has additional wood for the fireplace along with a washer and dryer. In the evenings you can listen to the stereo, watch cable television or a movie on the DVD player while relaxing and enjoying the warmth of the fireplace. Step through large sliding glass doors onto a 400 sq. ft. deck with comfortable seating to enjoy a panoramic view of Blue Hill Bay. We are located between Mitchell and Duck Cove on the western side of Mount Desert Island, so you will need to sit out on the deck in the evening to watch a spectacular sunset which probably will take your breath away.

Bass Harbor is filled with coastal photo opportunities like lobster boats and other yachts, lobster traps and buoys, winding roads, and buildings characteristic of the area. The famous Bass Harbor Head Light is located here on park land a short distance southeast of the harbor. This is one of the most photographed and recognized lighthouses in America. Thurston's Lobster pound and restaurant is a 5 minute walk down the road to the harbor. It has an excellent bar and provides authentic Maine cuisine like boiled lobster, fish chowder, lobster stew, mussels, and our favorite; Lobster BLT sandwiches. We are a 10 minute drive from Southwest Harbor which has many restaurants, shops, and a grocery store. Bar Harbor, the local tourism hub, is about a half hour drive away. Getting AroundThe free LLBean Island Explorer (URL HIDDEN) bus stops nearby which takes you around to popular spots on Mount Desert Island.
