Property Description:

Situated in one of the most spectacular locations on Mount Desert Island, this private and cozy cottage is a treasure with stunning views of Frenchman’s Bay and surrounding mountains. Nestled in the trees and overlooking a rocky beach, this home provides serenity and privacy, yet is only moments away from the amenities of Bar Harbor’s village center, Acadia National Park’s Sand Beach, hiking trails, and Schooner Head overlook. The front deck offers a great location for simply enjoying the panoramic and picturesque views or perhaps applying them to canvas. Or, stroll the path to beautiful Meditation Point and take advantage of its bench to watch the boats entering and leaving Frenchman Bay.

FIRST FLOOR: Open concept Kitchen, Living, and Dining Room with ocean views. Primary Bedroom with Queen Bed with water views and French doors to the deck. Across the hall is a Bedroom with Twin Beds. These two bedrooms share a Full Bath with combined tub and shower. Adjacent to the Kitchen is a Laundry/Pantry area and stairs leading to the second floor.

SECOND FLOOR: Bedroom with Queen and en suite Full Bath with combined tub and shower.

OUTDOOR SPACES: Spacious front deck overlooking ocean. Small deck at entrance. Ledge and natural lawn spaces surround the property with trails leading to the rocky point. Note that the shore is not suitable for launching a kayak as access to the water is a little tricky, but enjoying the view is easy to appreciate! Grill area is located behind the house.

NOTE: Thomas Cole of the Hudson School of artists painted the view from where the cottage sits. His painting hangs at Jordan Pond Shop.

About this area:

Bar Harbor's village and surrounding rural residential areas are a popular destination for visitors to Acadia National Park. The town center offers diverse shops, restaurants and activities. Acadia National Park's Hulls Cove entrance, as well as other major entrances, are located just outside the village center. Not all properties listed as 'Bar Harbor' are actually in the village of Bar Harbor, since the town of Bar Harbor encompasses the northern half of Mt. Desert Island, most of which is quite rural in nature. However, homes within this area are usually between five and fifteen minutes' drive to the village center.


Heaven on earth!

Artists Cove, simply put, is heaven on earth. We have been going to this house for 20 years and can't imagine our summers without this piece of paradise. The view of the ocean, the gorgeous rocky cove, the scents of salt water and pine, the quiet, the birds, the flowers, the sunsets, the starry skies, the peace. The house itself is very cozy with everything we need, and not at all pretentious. It's soulful and inviting. Our family has a deep and great love for Artists Cove!

Exceptional location that gives you all of the Maine coast's desirable features without leaving the property.

The view from this cozy "cabin" must be the absolute best on all of Mt. Desert Island. Isolated, yet close enough to town for complete comfort.
