Here on the ''Quietside'' of Mount Desert Island you may enjoy our very peaceful and private setting by relaxing on your spacious deck while watching the sailboats and lobstermen return with their daily catch, or strolling down through our well-tended front lawn to your private beach.
Our one-level easily accessed cottage offers a combined kitchen, living and dining area with 4 bedrooms with 2 full baths (one king bed, two with twin beds- private bath and a smaller room with a twin bed.)
