Rich's Cove Cottage - Oceanfront home near Acadia Nat'l Park

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

This newly constructed (2006) artisan cottage is situated in the secluded Rich's Cove

on the north-eastern shore of Isle-au-Haut, an island about 5 miles

off the coast of Maine. The island is home to several well known Maine authors

and families that live there year round and those who summer there.

Isle-au-Haut is a beautiful island comprised of nearly 50% Acadia

National Park land, is serviced by two different ferry routes and

is accessible from Stonington, Maine (see the Isle au Haut boat

company online). In US News and World Report's

July 2005 special vacation issue, Isle-au-Haut was called the 'most beautiful

spot on Earth'.

Wake up to the sunrise over the Atlantic and the sounds of

lobsterboats and seagulls. Bike or take a short drive to beautiful

Acadia National Park.

Renting this cottage will allow you and your family and friends to

truly get away from it all and to experience Maine island life to

its fullest. A phone call will have caught-that-day lobsters

on your dinner plate, a short bike ride will bring you to a

glacier-cut pond with waters as clear as glass.

The milky way is almost bright enough to light your evening by itself, not

the mention the opportunity for other stargazing.

You will not believe your eyes, nor will you want to leave...

Discounts for return renters apply (10% discount) after the first year.

A flat fee of $40 for cleaning is applied to each bill. Please inquire if interested!

If you are flying in to the Bangor Airport, and are not renting a car (and do not want to pay for parking on the Stonington dock), we highly recommend Eddie's Island Taxi, which will transport you from the Bangor Airport to Stonington for a flat rate of $120. You can search them online at Maine Business Listings.

Wonderful cottage...peaceful setting on the water

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was great, and the setting was lovely, peaceful and tranquil. Sarah couldn’t have been more gracious and accommodating, and promptly returned calls and e-mails. She went out of her way to ensure that our stay was pleasant and that we had everything that we needed. It was a pleasure to deal with her.

The cottage was very clean and comfortable. We loved sitting out on the rocks by the water and had a great time hiking on all the wonderful trails. We immensely enjoyed our stay and felt thankful to have use of the car and the bikes as well! It was a fantastic week and we hope to return!

This is the place to be!

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt, this is the place to be on Isle au Haut! I've stayed in this lovely Rich's Cove cottage on three different occasions and they are some of the fondest memories. The surroundings are priceless and the hospitality is unrivaled. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Great place for solos, couples, families! Highly recommended.
