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 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.

We stayed two weeks in this pleasant, well-furnished cottage on the shore of Blue Hill Bay on Mount Desert Island. Enjoyed hiking and bird-watching in nearby Acadia National Park. The owners, Kathy and Jay, were considerate and helpful.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are so glad that you enjoyed staying with us. Hiking and bird watching are just a few of the fun adventures here on MDI. I plan to go swimming and kayaking this week. You certainly are welcome to come back and stay with us in the future.

Relaxing getaway by the water
My sister and I took a road trip to Maine this July and spent a delightful week on the quiet side of Mt. Desert at Cedarledge Cottage. This was the first time staying at the cottage and I look forward to returning soon. Its location near Bass Harbor makes it convenient for ferries and tours to other islands as well as being close to the good restaurants and galleries of Southwest Harbor. It is also easy to drive to hiking, biking and kayaking places on all of Mt. Desert. The cottage had everything to make our stay comfortable and after introducing us to the property, we did not really see our hosts Kathy and Jay. It is obvious they take good care of the grounds as well as the cottages. Major memories are: lingering morning coffee on the deck looking out to the Bay, loons calling at night, lobster boats checking traps in the morning. This is the perfect place to relax on quiet days and to come back to from all the adventures the island provides.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We love to hear that you enjoyed your stay and have wonderful memories of your vacation. I love living here on the "quiet side". When I leave the island, I always feel that I leave a little bit of my heart behind. It sounds like you feel the same way. Come back soon. You are always welcome to stay with us.

Paradise!
This was our second time at Cedarledge - we absolutely love it! It's a lovely, comfortable cottage with everything we needed to make our stay perfect. Mornings with coffee and a book out on that deck looking at the view of Duck Cove are memories I treasure (and pull out during gloomy winter days). We love the whole area of the "quiet side" - easy access to tranquil hikes and walks along the shore, Thurston's Lobster Pound, the lovely little town of Southwest Harbor, and so many wonderful Acadia hikes. There's little traffic on this part of the island, and we find no need to ever venture into the more crowded and touristy Bar Harbor. A rare rainy day in the cottage was cozy and lovely. Highly recommended!!!

Perfect!
My mother and I recently rented this darling 2-bedroom cottage for our girls' trip to Mount Desert Island, Maine. It was exactly what we were looking for! Quiet, semi-private, on a peaceful, secluded granite ledge overlooking gorgeous water. Very comfortable, fantastic views, and well-appointed on the inside (it had everything we needed, including a spacious bathroom and all the kitchen gear we could desire). We loved the brief walk down the path to the beach and spent hours enjoying the water and the view while exploring the shore or sitting on the granite ledge. (We saw seals and a sea otter!) Kathy was very responsive to any questions or concerns that we had (which were minimal/normal). Cedarledge Cottage was also a great center of operations for us on the quiet side of the island, away from tourist bustle, while we explored the surrounding areas during the day -- a quick and easy drive to the best spots in acadia National Park, including things like Cadillac Mountain and Schoodic Peninsula. And our favorite lobster pound, Thurston's, less than 10 minutes away. All in all, we loved this cottage and look forward to returning. Thank you, Kathy and Jay!

Quiet, relaxing and comfortably rustic
There were no surprises,everything was just as we could see and read on the website. For us, it was a home away from home with lots of kitchen utensils, pots and pans, dish soap, kitchen and paper towels and cleaning agents in kitchen and bathroom. Beds were comfortable & clean with nice new pillows. The deck in back had great chair rails and a new hammock along with deck chairs. Sun and shaded areas were available on the deck almost any time of the day due to the position of the cottage. Easy to find our way around due to detailed map provided by owners. Fantastic trails just down the road in Bass Harbor area which open up at trails end to rocky coast with beautiful view suitable for anyone who can walk! This was our first cottage experience. We were completely comfortable and happy with the peace and quiet of it all along with easy access to Bar Harbor and acadia just a short drive away.
