Mt.Desert Is.'ACADIA SUNSETS' Cabin near Echo Lake, Acadia Trails and Bar Harbor
Acadia National Park Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island
Buxton, Maine

Sunset Pines, Hall Quarry

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at this cottage for the past 20 years. It is tucked away in a quiet wooded section of Hall Quarry but within walking distance to beautiful Somes Sound. Known to be on the "quietside" of Acadia, it is within a short driving distance to the picturesque towns of Somesville and Southwest Harbor. With easy access to Acadia National Park activities, the cottage is well cared for with yearly updates. The owners are local and accessible should there be any questions or issues. You won't regret your decision to come to Sunset Pones especially when sitting on the deck and enjoying beautiful sunsets or inside warming by the propane fireplace.
