    About this property

    Unique Set-up~~beautiful Lilac Cottage Offers the Most Privacy

    Historic cottage in Northeast Harbor with outdoor tennis court
    Northeast Harbor Maine is famous for its summer residents, a beautiful protected harbor with exclusive yachts and sailing vessels, and Acadia National Park. Lilac is a unique cottage offering a main house and a guest house connected by the spacious gathering deck. The Main house is comprised of a great room with open kitchen/living room concept that offers a Queen size bedroom and bathroom in the upstairs loft. There is also a queen sized pull out sofa-bed in the Great Room. The connecting guest house contains two full and private bedrooms both attaching separately to a full bath. One bedroom has a queen sized bed and a 2nd bedroom with sturdy twin bunk beds. This unique design sleeps 8, a maximum 5 adults with 3 children and offers extra privacy for two families traveling together or In-laws traveling with you. It also works very well for traveling with older children so you may each enjoy your own space while still spending time as a family. Northeast Harbor is a quaint little village close to all that Acadia National Park offers this unique island. Some of the best hiking biking trails are less than 5 minutes up the road by car. Spectacular Asticou and Azalea gardens are within a 5 minute walk! There is a great path behind the guest house that brings you into down town within a minute, while still being away from downtown. Perfect location within a couple of minutes walk to all downtown shops, restaurants, as well as the marina, yet you are tucked in on a small side street never knowing you are that close to the downtown.

      Lovely place to stay

      This home made a perfect base for us to explore trails and areas that are away from the crowds on MDI. We thoroughly enjoyed the lay-out with a bedroom/bath in the main house and another full bedroom/bath in the guest house. The host was terrific. And it was so nice to be able to walk to breakfast or dinner or shops in the village. Thank you so much!

      5/5 Excellent

        Lovely Bright House and Accommodating host

        We had a wonderful stay in Northeast Harbor and this house is a very short walk to the little town and the nearby marina. The house itself was a great setup for us with lots of sunshine in every room. The host was extremely accommodating of our travel needs with a little one providing a high chair and pack n play for us. Internet worked great and the kitchen was well equipped for our stay.

        5/5 Excellent

          Accurate Website Description. Great Location.

          We were a party of four adults and two children. The configuration of this clean and comfortable property worked well for us. It's a two minute walk to the middle of town by way of the back path. We cooked many meals in the adequate kitchen and ate them under the umbrella outside on the lovely deck. The upstairs bed is very firm. The sheets and towels are high quality. The second floor bathroom has a shower. The annex bathroom has a clawfoot tub/shower. Wifi worked well. We didn't try the TV so I can't comment on that. There is parking for two vehicles. The washer/dryer is in a closet in the bunk bed (kid) bedroom so we needed to plan around naps and bedtimes. We had a wonderful stay.

          5/5 Excellent

            Great stay

            Was well cleaned when arrived. The location was great- it was right off of the Main Street so we could just walk down for coffee or dinner. Even though it was so close to the center of town, it was very private and quiet at night which we appreciated. Our kids (2 and 5) loved playing out on the deck connecting the two houses.

            4/5 Good

              Great for teens!

              It was everything the description promised. Great for older kids who want sone extra space! Great location to walk to shops, etc.
