Southwest Harbor, Mount Desert Island, Maine
Description:

Along with my husband and family, I invite you to share the beauty of our home and cottages on Mount Desert Island, the home of Acadia National Park. Seaside Cottages share a 7 acre property with 500 feet of bold granite and stone beach shoreline between Mitchell and Duck Cove directly on the shore of Blue Hill Bay in the coastal village of West Tremont. The setting provides a southwesterly exposure with beautiful sunsets.

Our location is private, decidedly un-commercial, yet convenient to the facilities of the surrounding towns, including Bar Harbor. While we enjoy living in the relative quiet of the western side of Mount Desert Island, the activities of Acadia National Park are literally at our back door.

The property is located in rural area that is safe and enjoyable. Excellent Wifi and Washer/Dryer and prompt attention maintenance issues by courteous and hands-on hosts (Kathy and Jim). Easy access to Acadia NP and ideally suited for someone who simply wants to hike in the park and not care about much else. Only disadvantage was the need to take sheets and towels but this requirement was clear from the outset.

GENERAL INFORMATION

1) We rent by the week SATURDAY TO SATURDAY.
2) A deposit is required within 7 days to hold your reservation. Refund of deposits can only be made if we are successfully in re-renting the entire period.

4) Balance due upon arrival.
5) Our housekeeping cottages are now smoke-free. Smoking is not permitted inside at any time.
6) We have found that many of our guests are allergic to pets, so we regrettably have concluded that we can not accommodate any pets.
7) Each apartment at the Aldernest Cottage can accommodate four people comfortably. We do count children, including infants, as part of the total occupancy.
8) We do have plenty of blankets and pillows but we do ask people to bring their own sheets and towels. We do have the option of an additional $50.00 fee if you can not do so.
