Our charming cottage sits at water's edge on the Bagaduce River. You will enjoy over 3.5 acres of groomed woodland and full use of our private cove. We are close to Acadia National Park, Bangor International Airport and many cultural offerings. You'll find Belfast, Camden, Stonington, Deer Isle and Mount Desert Island are just short drives away. We welcome guests from all backgrounds - our accommodations are good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families with children.
Over a span of 3 years, our family rebuilt this little cottage that had sat empty for many years. During this major rebuild, we carefully removed and saved pieces of this cottage's history. The large beam in the common area is actually one of the beams the original cottage sat upon. We pulled it carefully from beneath the building and realized it had been signed by it's original builder. We were able to save the signed portion and now this beam hangs proudly displaying it's ancestors signature. The light over the kitchen sink is actually a globe lamp that had been used as a porch light for many years. In reality, it would have been easier and more cost efficient if we had completely removed the old and replaced with new. However, once we started working on the cottage, we found a story too interesting to completely remove and many pieces of local history. Over the past 100 years, there has only been 2 previous owners of this property. We have been contacted by both families and it's been our pleasure to welcome them back to see how we tied their history into our renovations. We've seen many tears and been thanked many times for saving this gem and bringing it back to life.
