Ledgewood Cottage is nestled on three private acres on the quiet side of Mt. Desert Island. Situated on an island at the northern end of Long Pond, the largest lake on Mt. Desert Island, the home is secluded but within easy reach of all the area has to offer. The beach at Long Pond, with its dock and canoe and kayak rental, is just up the road, and the towns of Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, and Northeast Harbor are all an easy drive away. The nearby mountains are interlaced with National Park hiking trails. After a day of exploring the carriage roads and trails, lakes and villages of Mt. Desert Island, come back along the winding woodland road to the peace and comfort of Ledgewood Cottage.
The house is a four bedroom year-round vacation home, and features two distinct master bedrooms.
Stepping from the comfortably furnished deck, you will enter a cathedral ceilinged great room. At the near end are a dining area and well equipped skylit chef's kitchen with two-oven Jenn Air range. Complimentary spices and condiments are provided. Beyond the kitchen, the larger section of the great room holds the living room, with two long couches, extra chairs, large wall mounted flat screen TV and speakers. Area maps and guidebooks are provided here to help guests plan each day's adventures.
Next to the great room is the large dining porch with seating for eight, the perfect gathering spot at the start and end of the day. Three walls of windows fill the room with sunlight, and a bar holds glasses and barware, as well as puzzles and board games. On the other side of the great room, a hallway leads to two pine paneled bedrooms. The main floor master bedroom has a king bed and en suite bathroom with walk-in shower and deep jetted soaking tub. Across the hall, a second bedroom holds two twin beds. A laundry and another full bathroom with large walk-in shower complete the main floor.
Ledgelawn Cottage's upper level holds the second master bedroom, a spacious relaxing sleep loft with king bed, two skylights, and view across the great room to treetops and sky. The lower level of the house holds the fourth bedroom, with four-poster queen bed and private outside entrance.
Our four bedrooms are distributed on three levels, providing guests with privacy. Our twin bedroom and pack and play are ideal for two or three younger children, and the other three bedrooms are suitable for adults and older children (the master sleep loft is just for adults).
At Ledgewood Cottage, every effort has been made to provide visitors with a rewarding and memorable vacation. Our goal is to ensure that guests have everything they need, and will feel they have truly found a welcoming home away from home.
Ledgewood Cottage is a no smoking, no pets vacation home. Due to our family's severe allergies, we cannot allow dogs under any circumstances. We ask that guests not request special permission for their own four-legged family member, regardless of size, breed, or good behavior.
