Town & Country Cottage Rental
This beautifully appointed cottage is equipped to meet your needs for a wonderful Maine vacation. The full deck across the back opens to a large lawn area where dogs and children delight in running and playing ball. The field beyond the lawn area is often frequented by deer and many birds arrive to dine at your very own feeder or to bathe in the bird bath.
Town and Country Cottage is conveniently located 1 mile from the Acadia National Park Visitor Center and 4 miles from downtown Bar Harbor and just 6 miles from the traffic light at the head of Mount Desert Island: look for the cottage on the right. Our Route 3 location provides easy access to the Island Explorer, a free bus service into town, inside the park and other island towns as well.
The cottage is smoke free and we are dog friendly.
Your hosts, Brian and Hurshey Somers, are year-round island residents.
The open living room area has hardwood floors with oriental carpets, a queen size sleep sofa, and cable television with a DVD player for your enjoyment. High-speed wireless internet is included. A door opens to a large outside deck with a gas grill with an open view of a beautiful woodland meadow with fields, trees, and gentle rolling hills. This is also the view from the living room window. The meadow is frequented by deer, flocks of wild turkeys, owls and other native wildlife. What a perfect place for winding down and catching up with friends and family after your day's exploration of our beautiful island.
The kitchen is well-equipped with a dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave, full-size appliances and plenty of storage and counter space. Cutlery, dishes and pots and pans are supplied. A full-sized washer and dryer are provided in an alcove located near the bathroom. The cottage is comfortably heated with a Rinnai heater that is easy to operate and responds immediately making it a year-round vacation rental. The bathroom has an optional electric heater if needed.
The single bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed, a large dresser and bedside lamps. Linens are provided. There is ample closet and storage space. Children are welcome and if needed, a crib is available. The attached outside deck is covered and enclosed with a gate for extra safety if little ones or dogs are visiting. Dogs and children are delighted to get to run and play ball in the large back yard. The bedroom window has a view of the deck and of the quiet meadow which will be appreciated late at night with views of the stars or when you awake in the morning to begin another day of exploring the island. This is home-base for a wonderful Acadia vacation.
