    About this property

    Bayside Shore Front Cottage Near Bar Harbor

    Beachfront cottage with kitchen and balcony
    Built in 2001, the cottage is designed for enjoying time inside and out during our spectacular summers. It rests in a quiet location 75 feet from high tide. Has 4 BDRMS and 3 bathrooms. No roads or ledges to traverse when walking down to our private beach. We are 25 minutes from Bar Harbor and 20 from Acadia National Park, and only 7 minutes from Bar harbor Airport and 35 from Bangor International Airport. WE NOW HAVE HIGH SPEED INTERNET FROM TIME WARNER AND CABLE TV WITH A DVR. WE HAVE TWO FLAT SCREEN TVS. ONE IS IN THE LIVING ROOM THE OTHER IS IN THE DEN/BDRM. We now have a third bathroom. OUTSIDE The cottage faces the sunset and Blue Hill Mountain across the inter-coastal ocean area of Union River Bay and Blue Hill Bay. Wooden stairs step down to a typical Maine tidal zone, except for the brook on the south side of the property. At low tide rocks draped in thick tangle of yellow-green and brown-purple seaweeds surround our pebble beach. These are called Rockweed and are an important part of our coastal ecosystem. The shore provides lots of chances for beach combing and exploring. A brook empties into the Bay on the south side of the property and encourages birds and other wildlife to visit. A large deck and a balcony off the second-story bedroom are great places to picnic or for sitting still and enjoying songbirds, ducks, loons, gulls, eagles, on occasion some wild turkeys, squirrels, even seals, and osprey, depending on the time of year.

      Perfect Fall Family Vacation

      This home was perfect for our family; 5 adults and 2 grandkids. Relaxing, homey, comfortable, spacious, convenient with wonderful sunrise/sunset’s on Union Bay. We rented kayaks from a local spot. We were on the water several times a day with the ease of beach right there at the house! We will definitely be back!!


        Beautiful location

        This home has everything needed for a long stay. Lots of towels, kitchen well equipped and lots of books and games. The view was amazing. However mosquitoes were horrible making it difficult to sit outside at night and enjoy the sunset. Tiki torches or fire pit would be recommended to decrease mosquitoes. The house is VERY dated and needs some TLC. ( toilet seat taped together, furniture very used, one bath was very stained from use and the other had mold around bottom of door) Kitchen microwave and cabinets need a good wipe down as well does the area along lower cabinet over hang (lots of food crumbs, dust and dirt) We also had an issue with spiders during our stay. Several in sinks and showers. The home does not have central air conditioning. It would have been nice to open windows for the breeze . However the screens do not fit correctly. They are for older windows. The town and area are nice. The drive to downtown Bar Harbor was at least 30 min and 25 to most parts of Acadia area. We did not mind the drive because we wanted to be on the water and have some privacy.

        4/5 Good

          Beautiful retreat

          We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The house is beautiful and so well stocked. It's close enough to Bar Harbor and Acadia to venture there whenever you want, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of the bay. I would definitely recommend this property!

          5/5 Excellent

            This Property is Sublime

            When we arrived at this spot it took our breath away and continued to enchant us for the entire week. The house is fabulous-spacious and comfortable with private spaces to sit and read. The kitchen is a real working kitchen and is fitted out with utensils and serving dishes better than any place we have ever rented. The water views are beautiful and the sunsets each night were worthy of many Instagram posts and newly invented cocktails. The beds were comfortable and everyone slept very well. And added to all this -the location! -minutes from grocery stores, lobster pounds and amazing hiking trails. But you don’t really need to go anywhere. We rented some big kayaks and toured the bay, explored the rocks and seaweed at low tide and swam at high tide. Wonderful!

            5/5 Excellent

              Beautiful Home, Beautiful Location

              Our family could not have been more satisfied with our stay in Jay's property in Elsworth. Everything, from the layout of the house, to the waterfront view, made for a picture-perfect stay in Maine. The pictures really don't do the place justice. We had so many fun nights watching the sunset over the bay, followed by waking up early to catch low-tide and explore the tide pools. Each member of our family was happy with the experience and we would recommend this house to anyone. Further, we were in a great location for easily accessing and exploring both Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, despite being there at peak season. The lack of AC was the only minor negative, but I suspect that had more to do with the fact that it was unusually warm the week we were there (lower 90s some day) and normally I don't believe that area feels so warm.
