vacation rental description

Franklin Cottage is a spacious, comfortable, and interesting accommodation for two or three.  It is located all the way in our driveway, facing away from our other two cottages, Hawthorn and Juniper, offering guests privacy and a view across the lawn and gardens to the woods (and very often deer passing through!).

At the entryway is a handsome stone terrace kept shady and cool by a gracious old maple.  To the right of the tiled entryway is the airy high-ceilinged bedroom with twins joined for a king bed, DirecTV, and plenty of good books.

A left from entry takes you into the open-plan living room, with fully-equipped kitchen, dining area, and fireplace.  Seating is very comfortable for reading or enjoying the lovely view to the woods.  Outside the living room is a 10'x16' deck with retractable awning and Weber grill.

Off of the main room is a bathroom with shower,as well as an office/workroom with washer and dryer.  This can be converted to a bedroom for one upon request.

Interesting original artwork and fresh flowers from our gardens abound.

Lovely cottage, lovely people

Review submitted: September 4, 2011   Date of arrival: August 6, 2011

We have been big fans of Mt. Desert Island for years and this is the nicest place we have stayed for charm, comfort and location. And how many places have a chipmunk that waits for you on the front step when you return to the cottage? The owners also are very nice and helpfully steered us to some good kayaking spots.

"...a true home-base..."

Review submitted: September 4, 2010   Date of arrival: August 28, 2010

"To say that we had a wonderful time while staying at the Franklin would be an understatement. Your warm and inviting cottage provided us with a true 'home-base' as we explored the island...We will treasure our wonderful memories forever!"
