We can’t say enough good things about this property! It was enough distance from the touristy bustle of August to give us peace and quiet but everything was an easy drive whenever we wanted to go out. It worked perfect for all ages (youngest was...More

Not sure where to start! As a multi-family of 7 (2 families; ours of 4 other of 3), this property was perfect! Clean, airy, with views from all over, like it says. We had 2 teenage boys and a 12 year old/tween boy. The boys...More

About the neighbourhood
Few locations in the United States can compare to the beauty and diversity of Mt. Desert Island (MDI), home to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Acadia Sunset Oceanfront Cottages, including Blue Heron Tide, are detached homes along the oceanfront, facing out to sea on the west side of MDI. MDI itself is easily accessible by bridge – no ferry crossing is required to access this part of Acadia. Green shaded areas on the map are the National Park. You enjoy easy access to the Park and all of its amenities from this location, without having to sleep in the bustle and noise of Bar Harbor itself. Enjoy spectacular sunsets out over the ocean every evening from the luxury and privacy of your own screened-in porch and cozy cottage.
Getting around
A car is necessary to get around, however you can ride the free Park shuttle in and around the Park once here.
