'The Red House' Beautiful Maine Cottage in Acadia and


Property Details

Updated: Oct 16, 2016
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

The Red House is a restored old Maine cottage located in the heart of Acadia National Park and less than 3 miles from the quaint village of Bar Harbor.

Our family purchased this property while vacationing at Acadia National Park (prior listing # 9673). We fell in love with the area, the location of this property and the home itself. It is near two different park loop entrances, where you can hike, climb mountains, enjoy the sand beach, visit Jordan Pond or sit on the rocky outcroppings, enjoy the crashing surf and ponder. We also loved going to Bar Harbor and browsing through all the quaint little shops (there is something for everyone) as well as eating at the varied restaurants they have. The cottage is roomy but cozy at the same time and the back deck and porch have an amazing view of Gorham Mountain. We can't decide if the sunrise behind the mountain or the illuminated mountain face at sunset is more amazing. Did we mention the dazzling array of stars to be seen while sitting on the back porch at night? We invite you to enjoy our home and the area!

What a find! The property, location and amenities were perfectly described, the communication with the owners was easy. Deb was wonderful to work with. The cottage was spotless upon our arrival. We always push the seasons as our favorite time in Acadia is November - this cottage was perfect, central to everything we do, hike, bike, sightsee roller ski and just chill and relax. The kitchen is completely outfitted, good wifi, great movie collection on VHS and dvd, even a collection of kids games and toys. Huge grill on the deck that we sadly never used due to the weather. Cell phone coverage at the cottage was none existent for us on Verizon but their private phone is available for calls in and out.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and for appreciating the Red House as much as we do! Cell service in and around Acadia National Park is spotty at best so the home phone is always available for free local, regional, and long distance calls. Free wifi/internet is also provided at the Red House.
