    Property description
    Southwest Harbor
    |
    Condo/Apartment – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Along with my husband and family, I invite you to share with us the beauty of our home and cottages on Mount Desert Island, the home of Acadia National Park. Seaside Cottages share a 7 acre property with 500 feet of bold granite and stone beach shoreline between Mitchell and Duck Cove directly on Blue Hill Bay in the coastal village of West Tremont. The setting provides a southwesterly exposure with beautiful sunsets.

    Our location is private, decidedly un-commercial, and yet convenient to the facilities of the surrounding towns including Bar Harbor. While we enjoy living in the relative quiet of the western side of Mount Desert Island, the activities of Acadia National Park are literally at our back door.

    Stay with us whether you need a lovely private honeymoon cottage or just a p...

    GENERAL INFORMATION;

    4) Balance due upon arrival.
    5) Our housekeeping cottage is now smoke-free. Smoking is not permitted inside at any time.
    6) We have found that many of our guests are allergic to pets, so we regrettably have concluded that we can not accommodate any pets.
    7) Each apartment at Aldernest Cottage can accommodate four people comfortably. We do count children, including infants, as part of the total occupancy.
    8) We do have plenty of blankets and pillows but we do ask people to bring their own sheets & towels. We do have the option of an additional $50.00 fee if you can not do so.

A friend and I stayed at Aldernest Den Sept. 14-21, 2013, finding it very comfortable and homey with a great working kitchen and wonderful beds. Our agent lives on site during the warmer months and while she was nearby and available, she left us to ourselves. This property is a two-apartment building about half a city block from the granite boldered water's edge and a delightful view to the ocean and great sunsets. While on the "quiet side" of Mount Desert Island, access to Acadia National Park is quite easy. Nearby is Southwest Harbor, a pleasant little village with a relaxed feel and some good restaurants. Try the mussels at Dry Dock Inn - delicious. Or the ice cream at The Quiet Side or their unbelievably high blueberry pie which isn't very sweet and receives some ice cream very well. Provisions are available in Southwest Harbor and Bar Harbor or prior to coming onto the Island. The trees were just starting to turn during our time, the nights being chilly and the... more

What a great place to stay. Very quiet and peaceful place to stay. It's on the "quiet side" of the island so you have to travel a bit to get to most of Acadia, but that's why it's so peaceful. It sits on a private drive so there is very little traffic. The cottage was nice and clean. The yard is well kept. The owner showed us where everything was and then left us to ourselves. She was always available for any questions that we had. If you want a relaxing and enjoyable stay, this is the place to go. more
