Tucked away on a tranquil wooded lot, yet a short distance to any desired location both on and off Mt Desert Island. Choose from an abundance of exciting, exhilarating, and entertaining activities during the day. Then later, relax and rejuvenate in peace and quiet. Watch a movie on a 50 inch plasma TV, read a book, play a game, surf the net, or sit on the deck and chat with a cold drink in hand. Close to the Chamber of Commerce's Bar Harbor Area Information & Acadia Welcome Center, lobster pounds, gas stations, grocery store, restaurants, Bar Harbor Airport, etc. A great starting point to access any location on Mt Desert Island, Ellsworth, or Schoodic Point.

Guest Comments : ...thanks for your place. It was wonderful. Just perfect for me and my family…It really hit the spot overall...we really unwound and found time for Bar Harbor, the west side of the island, Ellsworth, the lumber jack show, golf, kayaking, whale watching…, hiking in the park….we loved it and hope to return again in the future. Thanks again for making it possible.----

Guest Comments : We just returned from our vacation to Maine a few days ago—wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed Goose Cove Cottage! It was even more than we expected….I don’t think I told you before the trip: my parents’ favorite vacation spot has always been Maine, but because of their age, they haven’t been back to Acadia National Park for over 10 years; so we put together this family trip so my folks could return there, and the cottage turned out to be the perfect spot for us. Thank you—

Guest Comments : Wow - what a lovely home! We had a great time - thank you so much. Everyone commented on the comfortable beds, lovely bedding, beautiful kitchen, and of course we loved the videos and big TV! The house was perfect for us all…we'd love to have stayed longer.----

About June Creamer

Before my family moved to Bar Harbor in the late 60's, I have vivid memories of life at the lobster pound that my father and uncle shared ownership of in Sorrento, Maine. Many hours were spent with my siblings scouring the seashore for driftwood, sea glass, and shells, digging up clams, looking for crabs under seaweed at low tide, and exploring tide pools. We grew up with a love of nature and particularly the ocean. Many of my adult years were spent working in Bar Harbor as well as exploring Mt Desert and some of the surrounding islands. After the family business located in Bar Harbor was sold in 2000, we moved to the mid-West where I presently live. But, I am drawn back to this region several times a year to enjoy the unique beauty of Acadia and to experience once again the sights, sounds, and smells associated with the Atlantic ocean.

THE place to stay when going to Acadia!

  • 5 of 5

Words can't properly describe the amazing experience we had when we stayed at the Goose Cove Cottage. Of all the places we've stayed over the years, this place was the cleanest, nicest, and as close to a perfect experience as one can have for lodging. The location is great, you're close enough to explore all of Acadia while far enough away from the crowds. You're only a few minutes from local restaurants and shopping is about a 10-15 minute drive.

The property was dead on perfect. The second we walked in the house, we felt like we were at home. I can't say enough about the property owner as well, she took better care of us before and during our stay than I could have ever imagined. During our week long stay with a 2 year old (this is a great place for kids by the way), we explored the normal "touristy" parts of Acadia as well as some of the other far flung places of the park. The cottage's location made this incredibly easy to do. It was nice being able to come back and cook a nice meal after hiking/chasing a 2 year old around. Bar Harbor is about 20 minutes away, and the main gate for Acadia was about 15 minutes. You'll appreciate the quietness of the cottage being just over the bridge on the other side of Mt. Desert island when you come back from a day of wandering around Bar Harbor when there are cruise ships visiting.

As you can tell, we would absolutely recommend this as a place to stay when going to Acadia. The price is right, and you'll be staying at a place where you can truly relax. We can't wait until we can get back here again, because we know we are guaranteed to have a great trip.

Beautiful home. Beautiful area..close enough to all the action..

  • 5 of 5

The home was lovely, very comfortable and we felt right at home immediately.. The beds were very comfortable and we had everything we needed.. The gift basket was a very nice surprise and full of all kinds of goodies.. I went with my three sisters and a cousin and the basket had something for everyone. We would definitely recommend it to other friends and family. The area is so beautiful especially in the fall. The colors were just stunning everywhere you turned.. Next time we would go up for a longer stay we only really had 2 full days and one of those rained. So much to see just need more time to explore. But we managed to enjoy ourselves any way.. Shopping, eating, drinking, hiking through Arcadia and going to the top of Cadillac mountain..

Lovely, comfortable home in a private setting surrounded by the beautiful Maine woods.

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by a beautiful "welcome" package that included many delicious food items. We appreciate the thoughtfulness of the owner in leaving it for us.

The kitchen is extremely well supplied with just about any type of appliance you could wish for. Everything has been well maintained and was very clean. The interior of the cottage is beautifully decorated and comfortable, including the beds!

We toured Bar Harbor and Acadia every day. Fortunately the weather was perfect, in the 70's except for one afternoon shower. We enjoyed lobster at Thurston's twice, a perfect spot in a picturesque harbor.

A morning boat ride to view 5 different lighthouses was one of the highlights of our visit. And, of course, a trip up Cadillac Mountain to view the surrounding islands and the beautiful view was spectacular.

We would highly recommend this vacation rental in every way. Barbara & Bob

We enjoyed our family vacation at Goose Cove Cottage. The cottage has a lot of room to spread out. The beds are very comfortable. It's quiet and lovely. You are very close to Acadia and Bar Harbor and to grocery stores.

The property was comfortable and had all of the amenities we required for our stay.

  • 5 of 5

It was nice to have the conveniences offered by this home. The area was quiet and secluded. It allowed us to go to Acadia NP and Bar Harbor easily. We did have a problem with the airconditioners, however that was addressed quickly and with the temperatures they weren't really needed most of the time.

The cottage is located in Trenton--the gateway to Mt. Desert Island, home of Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, and the other scenic island communities. All island destinations are a short drive and within easy reach. The cottage is only 5 minutes from the bridge on to the island, the Bar Harbor Chamber's Visitor's Center, lobster pounds, gas stations, a grocery store, and the Bar Harbor Airport. Central to points of interest, both on the Island and off, such as Somesville at the head of Somes Sound, Northeast Harbor's yachting community, Southwest Harbor's fishing village, the Bass Harbor lighthouse, ferries to some of the other local islands (The Cranberries, Swan's Island, etc.), Seawall, Schoodic Peninsular, Deer Isle-Stonington, and so on. Bar Harbor and the National Park's Visitor Center is approx. 10 miles. Schoodic Peninsular, also part of ANP, is about 45 minutes away. Access to Rt 1, Maine's scenic route, is10 minutes away. The Camden/Rockland region is 2 hours from the island

Other Activities: rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, canoing
