Description

Blue Heron Tide is designed to provide a variety of common areas for being together while ensuring that, if one guest wants to read while another plays ping pong, you have enough privacy -- and quiet -- to do both simultaneously. This is a 4-bedroom, 4-bath cottage directly on the ocean on Acadia's Quiet Side, where you can enjoy all of the recreational opportunities that Acadia has to offer without having to sleep in the noise and bustle of it. The cottage is furnished with a nice mix of antiques and decorative touches unique to the area, while providing all of the comforts of home in a fully equipped kitchen, large dining area, full living room with bonus game table, screened-in porch, and separate recreational room and additional reading nook in addition to the bedrooms and baths. Outdoor spaces feature an oceanside patio with gas grille and beautiful view out to the cove and Blue Hill Bay beyond. And, of course, you have direct access to your own private stretch of Maine shore.

Two bedrooms are on the entry floor, one with a double and another with a set of twins. The living room features wall-to-wall windows to maximize the view, and includes a game table and plenty of comfortable seating. The dining room generously seats eight and has ready access to the screened-in porch.

On the second floor there are two additional bedrooms, the master, with a queen bed and separate sitting room, and a second queen bedroom adjacent to a reading nook. Each bedroom has its own private, full bath. The upstairs bedrooms enjoy the same spectacular view as the living and dining rooms. 

There is also a third level of living space on the ground floor, with a game room and comfortable seating area -- perfect for separate recreation or quiet time. A ping pong table is also included, for entertainment on rainy days or a friendly tournament regardless of the weather.

Blue Heron Tide includes a fully-equipped kitchen, steps to a quiet stretch of shore, a gas barbecue grille, CD/Radio/TV/VCR, a good collection of short stories, board games, puzzles, and cards for a rainy day or cozy night. At Blue Heron Tide you've got everything you need for your vacation, special occasion, getaway, or holiday.

You can enjoy a wide range of activities or restful times. Settle in with a good book in any of several cozy nooks. Or play ping pong with friends or family on a day at home. You are surrounded by gorgeous sunsets that you can enjoy in your private screened-in porch every evening. And you are steps away from your own private stretch of beach, where you can put in a canoe or kayak, beach comb for shells and sea treasures, or simply enjoy the view out to Maine's famous island-dotted shore, with the Nature Conservancy's Placentia Island in the distance, and Swan's Island just beyond. Every room has a water view and en suite bath. You are less than five minutes' drive from the Acadia National Park trails called Wonderland and Ship's Harbor, which bring you out to gorgeous rocky bluffs along the open ocean and Maine's famous rocky coast. A minute more and you're at Bass Harbor Head Light, the most photographed lighthouse on the U.S. East Coast. In five minutes you’re in Southwest Harbor with ample opportunities for shopping, dining, and boating; in two more minutes you’re hiking Acadia Mountain or swimming in Echo Lake; and in ten minutes you're in Bar Harbor, with its quaint shops, restaurants, whale watching, naturalist boating, sailing, deep-sea diving, Park tours, and many other opportunities.

Few locations in the United States can compare to the beauty and diversity of Mt. Desert Island (MDI) and Acadia National Park. Acadia National Park and its famous gateway towns are treasured the world over as some of the most beautiful spots “where the mountains meet the sea.” Ocean, lakes, mountains, miles and miles of hiking trails, dedicated bicycling and walking trails, gorgeous countryside, and the towns of Tremont, Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor, and Bar Harbor provide unlimited opportunities for relaxation and recreation. Come for some much-needed rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation at Blue Heron Tide Seaside Cottage!
