    About this property

    Somes Sound - Acadia National Park-- Vacation at Ocean's Edge

    Wake up to sounds of seals and ocean life on Mount Desert Island. Cantilevered house sited at the high tide mark on Somes Sound. A peaceful unique home, giving you front row viewing of resident eagles, seals and other wildlife. If you are looking for a comfortable oceanfront house with swimmable water, look no further. The beach below has lots of great rocks to dive off or maybe you want to rest and read on a comfortable lounge chair on the deck, that hovers over the ocean below. House is very close (walking distance) to hiking and carriage roads. Carriage roads are very suitable for all ages and athletic abilities. Northeast Harbor is a 5 minute drive, Bar Harbor just about 18 minutes and about the same drive to Southwest--where all of which you you will find lots of dining options. Or you might decide to pick up some fresh fish or lobsters and enjoy dinner at the house. New mattresses were purchased in 2018. *Important note: before you book, please send me an email confirming availability; the calendars on the 2 sites, where we advertise our house/s, are not syncing correctly. Please verify before reserving.

    Great Property and Location!

    The Nub House feels private and tucked away, with beautiful views of Somes Sound (sunsets are particularly spectacular), while being close to everything on MDI. The house was clean, comfortable, and well-stocked, and the property owner, Angela, communicated well. We couldn't have asked for a better base from which to explore Acadia NP and the island, or a better place to relax at the end of the day.

    5/5 Excellent

    Wonderful Family stay

    We stayed at The Nub with our four children. It was the perfect location — a short drive from Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Southwest Harbor, multiple hikes and lakes/ponds. It was also the perfect setting— Sommes Sound is beautiful and the kids loved being in the water. Angela was very helpful in planning the trip and was readily available for any questions we might have. We had such an enjoyable time and look forward to staying again sometime soon!

    5/5 Excellent

    Splendid spot for a true Maine experience

    This small-but-perfectly-appointed house offers amazing views of Somes Sound. The homeowner was clear and pleasant. We hope to return.

    Fantastic space

    This property is top-notch! The cabin is beautiful, the location on MDI is outstanding, and the property manager/owner is wonderful! We will definitely return next summer. Thank you for an amazing stay.

    Fantastic property and amazing location

    The Nub was the perfect property for our family of 4. The location in relation to ANP was amazing. Short drive to carriage trails, hikes and all the park had to offer. The deck overlooking Somes Sound was the highlight of the trip! So quiet and peaceful. We rented kayaks and enjoyed paddling all week right from the house. We hope to return to MDI again and will definitely stay at the Nub again. Thank you Angela for letting us rent your fantastic home!
