À propos de ce logement
Located 1.3 miles from Cottage str. downtown 9 1/2 Cleftstone Cottage is close to restaurants, dining, the beach, nightlife, and public transport. You’ll love this modest little place because of the very private location. Acadia National Park land is across the road and we are halfway between Duck Brook and Cadillac Entrance. We have 2 king, 1 full, 1 queen,plus 4 twin beds and 2 couches, we will on occasion make exceptions for well behaved pets for a small fee. A long (steep) driveway.
The number 1 reason to use our modest little cottage for your treasured vacation time, besides the privacy 1 mile from Main Street, is your entire family can stay in one home. Parking can sometimes be an issue in deep summer downtown but with a short bus ride you can get most anywhere on the island you want to be. You spend very little time on the phone co-ordinating with family if they are in the house, You spend very little time getting downtown when it's 1 mile away. Across from our driveway is owned by the park and there is an old discontinued road that takes you to some of the remaining foundations of mansions that burned during the Great Fires of Bar Harbor. From the remains you can see fountains and fireplaces and feel the great loss of that generation. The cottage is in the woods and very very private and if you are a bike owner you are less than a mile from motor free roads that take you into the park and onto the carriage roads. Witch Hole is our favorite bike ride it is a 3-4 mile loop which connects you to the trail system and has ponds, meadows, ocean outlooks a very environmentally rich little ride. Or maybe the bubble pond to Jordan Pond House for a Pop Over is our favorite ..because after a nice meal we can put our bikes on the bus and ride back home. But then there is that need to challenge ones self and ride to the top of Cadillac Mountain for sun rise.. stunning.

There is only the utility room that is off limits... but unlocked. We have items stored for winter residents of the college. Please respectfully leave those be. But the circuit breakers are there as well ... this year the electric company is switching to it's new substation on the corner of Prospect and route 3 .. so there have been "planned" not sure whose plan... but PLANNED outages and sometimes it will trip a breaker coming back on. You can find out if it's planned by checking the (URL HIDDEN) web site they have a map and it will tell you what part of the state .. zoom in on mount desert island it will say...but it has never been longer than 2 hours.. and well after breakfast.. a useful note...the gas kitchen range will still work with the manual clickers we provide.
