Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 10, 2014
Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

Juniper Cottage shares with our home two lovely acres in Somesville, a charming historic village in the heart of Acadia National Park. It's just a short walk to the library, repertory theater, church, museum, and convenience store. We are in a private quiet location, and you can walk down to the ocean or to fresh water swimming. View is of Cadillac Mtn across thoughtfully landscaped lawns and gardens. With its screened porch and gas fireplace, Juniper is a delightful home away from home.

"Sitting on the screened porch reading... This cottage is wonderful ~ beautiful. We love all the art, the surprises like the old shutters on the porch and the "coat rack" by the door... these things add so much pleasure."

This place has everything you need for a stay on Mt Desert Island. It is situated in the best possible location for those who don't want to JUST see Bar Harbor. Quiet and out-of-the-way feel, but RIGHT off the main road. The cottage is well equipped and the Owner is friendly and full of great advice for first timers! We managed to do absolutely everything we wanted to do while visiting Maine.

Everything we expected and more!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this cottage! It was everything we expected and more, after looking at the website-clean,open,cozy-and very private!There were fresh flowers,cut from the gardens outside, in the living room and bedroom, and the decor was charming.We stayed for two weeks and had everything available to us, including beach chairs and a small grill. There is easy access to all areas of the island and the owners of the cottages provide maps and info for the main attractions and some off the beaten path as well. We loved the beaches, hiking trails and restaurants. Everything was great! We booked again for next year for another two weeks!!

We loved it!

Juniper Cottage was adorable, very quaint with everything we needed. It was in the perfect location from Bar Harbor. It was only about 10 minutes away. Right up the block is the Somesville Bridge and pond. It is a lovely place. The location of the cottage is also very private.

The owner was very helpful and pleasant. We were very happy with our stay there.

Location

Activity and Interests

Somesville is virtually surrounded by Acadia National Park. The village is directly on Somes Sound, a natural fjord that comes right up the center of the island. Walk to Somesville Landing and sit by the water to enjoy the ospreys and eagles overhead. We also have the excellent Acadia Repertory Theatre, lobster and blueberry festivals, Park events, music festivals, and water activities: sailing excursions, canoe, kayak, and bike rentals, and miles and miles of great hiking.
