vacation rental description

Cable Crossing Cottage:
The cottage is 500 ft. from a rocky-gravel ocean beach, and is
located in a neighborhood of historic homes. A picket fence encloses
the front yard, and there is a full-length back deck overlooking a
14-acre wildflower field and the mountains and islands of the bay.
Catch the free Island Explorer Bus at the end of the driveway to
access towns throughout Mt. Desert Island and to access points in
Acadia National Park; the bus accommodates bikes.
Picture spending the day sight-seeing or exploring Acadia National
Park, and returning to the tranquility of 'The Quiet Side' of the
Island to enjoy your home away from home. Or, picture spending the
whole day relaxing on the deck.
One guest wrote: 'Your cottage feels as though someone really lives
here and loves this place - the lovely old furniture, pictures, and
the books. I especially loved the bookshelf - what a wealth of
information. I wish I had more time to read them all! Everything we
needed was here.'

activities and attractions in Acadia Maine

There are many kinds of attractions in the vicinity, and we have an
organized box of brochures and maps describing them, plus area guide
books. The cottage is a 500ft. walk to the tidal ocean where you can
beach comb, swim (very refreshing), or launch kayaks. Wander along
beaches, explore shops, museums, galleries, microbreweries, hear
live music (almost any kind), attend live theater, eat a wide
variety of cuisine, cook your own lobster (instructions available at
the cottage), or hike or bike on the Park trails throughout Mt.
Desert Island, take guided tours, visit islands by ferry or mail
boat, or explore Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, or other towns on the
island.
The cottage is 2.5 miles from the fishing and yacht-building
village of Southwest Harbor, population 1,900. The village of
Southwest Harbor has specialty food, wine, and art shops, plus
restaurants from casual to fine dining. It is a working fishing
harbor, and also home to yachts and other pleasure craft.
Our area, Mt. Desert Island - an island accessible by bridge, has
botanical gardens, museums, libraries, cyber cafes, restaurants,
galleries, boutiques, microbreweries, bookstores, antique shops,
health food stores, vegetable stands, live music, live theatre,
festivals, country fairs, and acres and acres of the natural beauty
of Acadia National Park.
Our area offers rentals, guided tours, or do-it-yourself
opportunities for hiking, bicycling, sea kayaking, sailing, fishing,
whale watching, golf, tennis, lake or ocean swimming, visiting
islands, learning history, studying ecosystems, and exploring Acadia
National Park.
The National Park is located throughout Mt. Desert Island, co-mingling with
the towns. This makes for the unusual opportunity to access the Park
from many entrances. Two Acadia National Park trails are within
walking distance of the cottage; the rest are within a (free) bus
ride or short diving distance. The Park has 120 miles of footpaths
over and around 26 hills, and 45 miles of car-free, broad, smooth
graveled carriage trails used by people on foot, bike and horse.
