Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 3-4 Sleeps

Welcome to Coveside Cottage, a little bit of paradise on the Maine coast. Offering incredible views of Bar Harbor, Mt. Desert Island and several other islands, Coveside Cottage is the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of the real world.

Wake to the sound of loons, lobster boats, bell buoys, and the gentle lapping of waves. Play some croquet on the spacious front lawn, relax on the front porch, or around the firepit at the water's edge.

History abounds on Ferry Rd. in Hancock - it was once a bustling hub for people going to and from Bar Harbor, with a railroad, a grand hotel, and ferry service to Bar Harbor.

Peaceful, secluded and charming cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here at the cove side cottage! The home was lovely and had everything we needed, it was a good size for my husband and I. Our favorite was the front porch, we spent a lot of time in the rocking chairs enjoying the view out while our dog sunbathed in the yard. We were hoping for a peaceful and quiet getaway and that is exactly what we got. We also spent a lot of time in Acadia hiking. So many spectacular views there! We would definitely recommend and hope to come back!

Awesome view in a peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything you need. The owner was kind enough to leave some condiments in the refrigerator for sandwiches, hot dogs etc. We cooked a few times while there. We didn't need to buy any salt or other spices since they were already there. The temperature didn't get out of the 60s but the house was kept warm with electric heater that was supplied. They did have a gas heater but it was needed.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have enjoyed our stay any more! The cottage was amazing, comfy, very clean, and stocked with everything you could possibly ever need! Someone put a lot of thought into what a traveler might need! The view that this cottage offered was breathtaking. It was defiantly hard to leave. The atmosphere was quiet, peaceful, and very relaxing. Thank you for making this such an enjoyable stay!

Spectacular view, exceptional experience!

This cabin, though very small, is awesome. Well equipped with everything you need, of course except your food. The view is phenomenal, spectacular, you never want to leave. Great location to go to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.
