Acadia Cottages is a collection of 12 Maine vacation cottages for sale, located in a peaceful, wooded setting just a short walk from Southwest Harbor’s waterfront. Southwest Harbor is a small fishing and boat-building village on the western side of Mt. Desert Island, surrounded by Maine’s famous Acadia National Park. Acadia Cottages combine the best amenities of bed & breakfast lodging with the privacy and convenience of independent cottages. High occupancy rates, excellent travel reviews and a very strong bottom line are proof of success!
These self-catering Maine vacation cottages for sale offer lodging on the “quiet side” of Mt. Desert Island, away from the cruise ships and crowds. Southwest Harbor is a classic Maine harbor town with an active fishing fleet, boat-building works, galleries, restaurants and shops. Wildlife cruises, fishing tours and sailing excursions leave right from the harbor and some of Acadia’s most scenic trails are right nearby. Just about any Maine experience a visitor could want is close at hand, but Acadia Cottages also make an excellent base for day trips to destinations like Bar Harbor and Camden, Maine. Acadia Cottages are a 3-hour drive from Portland, Maine and 1 ¼ hours from Bangor’s International Airport.
There are 12 guest lodging cottages and a 2,100 square foot owner’s home on the wooded 2.83-acre property. A 13th cottage contains guest laundry facilities and grills to borrow. Picnic tables, open space, and Adirondack chairs are provided for outdoor relaxation. The melodious sounds of a waterfall and a granite firepit add to guest enjoyment.
The cottages have been thoroughly refurbished in the last several years. Guests describe them as “immaculate”. Ranging in size from queen-bedded studios, to two-room king-bedded suites, all cottages feature full kitchens, bathrooms, decks or a porch, flat screened TVs, WiFi and electric heat. Cottages are stocked with linens, cooking equipment and environmentally friendly soap and paper products. Beach towels, umbrellas, maps and guide books are available to lodging guests.
