We're also pet friendly.Note: The cottage is located on a sloping back yard from the deck which allows for access to the fire pit, blueberry picking, hiking, and incredible, relaxing sunset views. The cottage sleeps 6 however we limit to no more than 4 adults/2 children or families of 2 adults plus children. Sunset Point Cottage: Sunset Point, which enjoys the highest cottage views in Acadia, is a winterized cottage that is comfortable from April through November. There's electric heat in every room, plus a working fireplace. Start the day with a leisurely breakfast with blueberries picked just outside the cottage. Then, after a busy schedule of sightseeing, climbing, biking, sea kayaking, whale watching, or swimming, we recommend a quiet hike followed by a sunset cookout. In full summer season, as well as in Spring and Fall (May & June/September & October) Bar Harbor and the towns on Mount Desert Island offer a wide variety of experiences -- festivals, art shows, competitions, great food, and more. Eat in at the cottage or go out for family and gourmet dining in Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, and Northeast Harbor. Driving Directions to Sunset Point: Driving Directions to Sunset Point cottage: Included in welcome packet. Acadia National Park: Acadia National park and Mount Desert Island offer such a wide variety of activities for all ages that it is difficult to summarize.

    Perfect Sunset

    Great Stay! Could have been better experience inside the cottage with less furniture and smaller kitchen table.

    4/5 Good

    Sunset cottage

    Great location, very quiet, close to the park and to the Bar Harbor. Terri was very fast replying my messages. Beautiful view from the deck, nice fireplace. We’re dissapointed with not having wi fi in the cottage and very small TV screen. Heater in the living room was not working but we stayed warm using fireplace.

    5/5 Excellent

    Spectacular location

    We were looking to rent a cabin that was a step up from camping and this was perfect. It is big enough to be a home base for your adventures on the island (especially on cold foggy damp mornings), but small enough that you aren't tempted to stay there full time. We loved the location as we could easily get from the "tourist side" of the island to the quietside. We loved being able to bike from Eagle Lake just down the road. The cabin was very clean and well stocked with kitchen items. The laundry room was very convenient. The sunsets were incredible (when not cloudy). Bring your own towels and possibly an extra garbage bag if your family likes to empty out the trash more than once a week. A surprising benefit is that you can flag down the Island Explorer bus that runs down Eagle lake road from the end of the private road the property is located on. We visited Echo Lake this way leaving my husband the car.

    5/5 Excellent

    Sunset cottage

    This was a great cottage to rent. We have stayed in bar harbor many times but this was the best stay we have had yet. The views are just gorgeous. The fire pit and fire place were a big plus and used every day. The cottage was comfortable to be in and had everything we needed. We will return to this cottage again. Thank you for a great stay. Joe and Betty

    Stunning Sunsets

    Sunset Cottage provides beautiful views of the mountains and the sunsets. The location is on a quiet street with a few other houses/cabins and all are situated for privacy. We rarely heard or saw anyone. We lucked out and the blueberries were ripe and we picked them fresh daily immediately behind the cabin. The cabin is ideally situated between Bar Harbor and SW/NE Harbors and Acadia National Park. We also took advantage of the Island Explorer parking at the MDI High School or the Visitor Center. The cabin had everything we needed for our party of three plus our dog. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, glasses, pots and pans. The beds were comfortable - it was nice to have plenty of space to hang and store our clothes in the dresser. The shower had great water pressure and it was felt good on our tired muscles after a day of hiking or biking. We didn't use the beautiful stone fireplace inside but we used the fire pit outside daily. We loved sitting on the deck with our morning coffee and evening drink. If you're looking for a cozy cabin to call home while visiting MDI - you won't be disappointed with Sunset. If you're looking for luxury amenities, this isn't for you.
