    About this property

    Oceanfront Cottage w/ Dock & Mooring - Walking Distance to Acadia

    Waterfront cottage with kitchen and patio
    In a prime location on Mount Desert Island Maine, this property has been lovingly cared for and enjoyed by the same family for four generations. The Cottage was designed and built in 2003-2004 by our father, Caleb, to take full advantage of this ideal spot which has direct access to the water, dock, mooring and gorgeous views of the harbor. Near the end of a private road on Connor Point, you will feel the peacefulness of a true get-away. Steps away from hiking in Acadia National Park, and yet you are only a 5 minute drive from the charming downtown of Southwest Harbor and 25 minutes from bustling and fun town of Bar Harbor. Feel life slow down as you enjoy your morning coffee on the large deck overlooking the ocean and decide whether you will hike, sail, swim, kayak or shop. Great place for kids with large grassy area, beach combing, and many kid-friendly activities. Ideal for up to 6 adults and 2 children. Accommodations: Our cottage features clean, open and bright rooms overlooking the ocean, a fully equipped kitchen and all of the modern amenities to enhance your stay. All the modern amenities: washer, dryer, dishwasher, gas stove, microwave, satellite TV, DVD, high speed internet (wifi), and heat. Great for boaters with both dock and mooring access. Nearby Activities: Walk just a few minutes to hiking trails, or drive (or take a free bus) around Mt. Dessert Island where you can stop to hike up mountains, swim in lakes, view the rocky coast, or visit Thunder Hole. You can hike (or drive) up Cadillac Mountain, the highest mountain in Acadia National park,which is one of dozens of mountains to climb. From here you can look down to Bar Harbor and the Porcupine Islands, the Cranberry Islands, and much of Mt. Desert Island

        Fun family getaway

        Beautiful location, fully equipment with everything needed for a fun visit with our family. The dock was a great addition to the beautiful setting. Kitchen was more then equipped with all the needed equipment to make meals and hang out. Bedrooms and bathroom were neat and clean with plenty of linens and towels. Would love to go back!

        4/5 Good

          Best location and beautiful view

          Most beautiful location. Loved having access to the dock. The house has everything you need especially lots of kid friendly toys and games. The beds are very soft, so if you like a firmer bed, you need to know!

          5/5 Excellent

            Great home for a family getaway!

            Caleb’s Cottage was a perfect getaway for our family! The house was spotlessly clean. The kitchen appliances, outdoor grill and laundry room had everything we needed. We appreciated the quick replies to any questions we had. We especially enjoyed sitting on the front porch, sipping coffee in the early morning, watching the seals in the harbor and the eagles flying overhead. The children spent hours fishing off the dock and looking for critters at low tide. It’s in a quiet location, on the water, only a five minute drive to the main part of Southwest Harbor and a short drive to Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and its many hiking trails. We definitely plan on staying here again in the future. Thanks, Ben, for allowing us to experience such a memorable week!

            5/5 Excellent

              Beautiful location, well-stocked place!

              We (6 friends - 3 couples) had a lovely time at Caleb's cottage this fall! The location is simply gorgeous, with amazing views and reflections of the sunrise and sunset on the water. The weather was a bit chilly, which made the fireplace inviting, and the kitchen has all of the cookware and dishes you might need! Ben was also incredibly helpful throughout the process. We were in town to run the MDI races and were able to walk home from the finish line (around 35 min walk) to freshen up. A wonderful visit overall!
