My siblings and I love Mount Desert island and enjoy sharing our special place on Somes Sound. Copper Top was just completed last August we think you will find it very comfortable and perfect for a true vacation. A lot of special attention was paid in creating an efficient and well-stocked kitchen while attending to the visual esthetics of each room; considering every detail.
Why Angela chose Mount Desert
Our house will attract people who want to be in nature and enjoy kayaking, watching eagles, seals and passing sailboats. And if you enjoy ocean swimming, walk down the stone steps for a refreshing dip in the water. Bring a book or two--you won't want to go anywhere else. Bar Harbor is a 10-minute drive where you will find a grocery store, a natural food market and many shops and restaurants. What most people comment on is how our house/site offers the best of both; peace and quiet, away from the summertime madding crowds yet within easy proximity to all harbor towns. There are very few access points on Somes Sound making our site perfect for kayaking or canoeing.
What makes this House unique
Wake up to the sounds of grunting seals on seal ledge. Carriage roads are very accessible and a 5-minute drive to best day hikes. Northeast Harbor is just a 10-minute drive away--wonderful shops and dining. Bar Harbor is about a 15 minute drive. Southwest Harbor is just across the Sound; 20 minutes drive. Mount Desert island offers a wide variety of activities with ferries to explore nearby islands, bike/walk carriage roads, golf, swim lakes and ponds, sailing and boating, fishing, great hiking. You might want to pick up a pizza or two and drive your group up to Cadillac mountain for sunset dining! But you most probably won't want to leave the house with so much at your fingertips; exploring the tidal pools, lying on sun-baked rocks and truly relaxing.

Spectacular all the way around!
My family & I traveled to Maine for the first time this summer (2018). Choosing this house was easy from the pictures and description and one of the best we've stayed in overall. The pictures were spot on. The home was spotlessly clean, beautiful and very well laid out. Our group had a wide range of ages & ability levels and this home was able to accommodate. My parents don't do stairs well, however, this layout had bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, entry & living space on the main level they really didn't need to go downstairs at all. Not only was the house great, but the recreation and dining guidance from the owner was fabulous. We received a very detailed list of sights, tours, hikes and eats that was tailored to our wide range of abilities. For those who want to cook in, this is a great kitchen. We have been in many other rentals which boast "gourmet kitchen" only to find it unclean and very inadequate. Not this one. This kitchen is thoughtfully stocked (and clean!). The owner was very attentive during our stay and took care of any questions promptly. We would not hesitate to stay in this house again. Loved it!
This home is perfect in every way. Luxurious and comfortable with beautiful views from every window. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the deck with the views of the water in the mornings and evenings. It is close to all the desirable things that one would want to experience in the area. A most memorable visit that was even more perfect because of the thoughtful details in this property. We are so fortunate to have been able to experience this breathtaking home.
