The Carriage House Cottage
Step away from the noise, the crowds, the stress. Share your morning cup of coffee or tea on the patio with the wood thrushes, chickadees and the resident snowshoe hare. Watch the orange fire of sunset pour through the triangular windows to the west and keep an eye out for deer that frequent the field, as they check regularly to see when the apples on the more than a dozen ancient trees will be ready.
On cool nights, gaze up at the stunning panorama of the Milky Way arching overhead. For those who the joys of stitting around a campfire remain a vacation mainstay, the "Tribal Council Area" with leanto, picnic table, fire pit and plenty of wood, is just a one minute walk down the nature trail.
Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, and Mount Desert Island offer a thousand things to do. Or, here there is plenty of peace and quiet if the one thing you want to do is enjoy peace and quiet.
The Carriage House Cottage is centrally located in the middle of the island, just six minutes from downtown Bar Harbor with its more than 100 restaurants and shops and only a mile from hiking trail and carriage road access points. The free Island Explorer shuttle buses pass by regularly and will stop with just the wave of a a hand.
