About Kim Childs and Doug Michael
I was born in Maine to parents 'from away' as they say and grew up in mid-coast Maine. Although I sought adventure in far away places during my 20's, I chose to return to this amazing state because there's no place quite like Maine or like Mainers. I happily live on Mount Desert Island with my husband, son, daughter and a rescued greyhound named Chester.
Kim Childs and Doug Michael purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Kim Childs and Doug Michael chose Trenton
Over the past several years, my husband and I have been looking for a very special property, and feel lucky to have finally found all we were searching for in Acadia Bayside Cottage. This cottage has everything we hoped for - a beautiful, oceanfront setting, vibrant sunsets to gaze at in the evenings and a location very close to Bar Harbor, Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. This cozy abode quickly felt like home to us and a place we could envision spending a lot of time - without having to drive far to feel like we were getting away from it all. Acadia Bayside Cottage has a presence - a strong sense of place - which quickly draws you in and invites you to relax & live in the peaceful moments we hope you'll experience while enjoying our little slice of paradise!
What makes this Cottage unique
Acadia Bayside Cottage is situated on beautiful Mill Cove, near the confluence of Union River Bay and Blue Hill Bay. Our cove is an excellent place to sea kayak, and is frequently visited by Seals, Harbor Porpoise, Bald Eagles, Blue Heron, Double-Crested Cormorant, King Fisher, and Loons. Four-footed friends have included the occasional White-tailed Deer and baby Fox!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We really enjoyed our week at the Bayside Rd cottage. It is in a beautiful setting and is clean and very comfy. It has a great location and is an easy drive to Bar Harbor, Acadia, Ellsworth, and so many other wonderful Maine places.
What a beautiful place with great views of sunsets and stars.
Enjoyed watching the high and low tides. After being out around a lot of people during the day, it was nice to get back to the cottage where it is very peaceful and quiet. A big plus is our dog was allowed to enjoy it with us.
This waterfront cottage is very special. As nice as all the reviews state and even better. We almost don't want to review this Cottage with its great location and yes "gorgeous sunsets", as we want to keep it for ourselves, We will definitely return.
Easy to get to Acadia and Bar Harbour, and we both loved the town of Ellsworth ..just a short ride up the road.
Wildlife and Sunsets
Staying at the Bayside Cottage was everything we hoped for on our family vacation and more. Kim and Doug responded to our questions quickly and thoughtfully provided many pantry items, a gas grill, outdoor chairs, fire pit, towels, and linens.
The cottage's setting on the cove provides beautiful water views with absolutely stunning sunsets. We walked the beach at low tide, fished and enjoyed stargazing during evening campfires on the beach. We saw wildlife every day in the cove such as bald eagles, osprey, a seal, loons, herons, and eider ducks. The location is convenient to Mount Desert Island and the Schoodic Peninsula. So after a day exploring, it was nice to come home to the quiet and peace of the cove.
We highly recommend the cottage and hope to return to stay again.
This cottage is just amazing! Quiet safe on the water location! Short drive to mt. desert island! Yummy delicious places to eat in Trenton! The cottage was super clean, the owners easy to talk with and super thoughtful leaving out bubbles and frisbee for my kids! They have games to play! Fire pit for beach and Sunsets were out of this world every night! We saw wildlife everyday on the water! It was dream come true! I hope we get a chance to do it again!
Acadia Cottage on the Bay - A gift from God
This cottage on the bay went way beyond our expectations. From when we arrived to our departure it had everything we could have needed. This cabin is truly a seaside treasure! The views and wild life we saw from the cottage were incredible! There is so much around this area to see and do. Thanks again to our hosts who made this one of our best vacations!
