About this area:

Somesville was the first village settled on Mount Desert Island in 1761 and is now a National Historic District. Walking or driving through the village is like stepping back in time, with sights of beautifully preserved examples of early New England architecture and a charming mill pond. The year round population of about 800 residents enjoy close proximity to Acadia National Park, Echo Lake, Somes Pond, and Long Pond. With its central location, all of Mt. Desert Island's treasures are just a short drive away.


Great times

This was our 2nd time back to the Magnolia Cottage. The place is great and there is plenty of room for all to enjoy. We love the location and the dock / views. We will be back in the future.

Awesome family home

It was great place to spend a week. We had all the amenities we were looking for in a 1 week staycation. Acadia National Park is just minutes away. The morning views from the house are just amazing.

Family Vacation

This home worked great for our family vacation. We had 8 adults and 3 kids and this home was plenty big enough. It was a very convenient location to everything on Mt Desert Island. Great views and a very convenient dock to use.

family vacation

The Magnolia cottage was perfect for our family of 8 adults & 4 children. Plenty of room in the house & the property was beautiful & spacious. We loved walking down the path to the dock thru the gardens & trees. The view is spectacular. The grandkids loved the yard & all the space. The house had so many rooms, cozy but spacious, that we never felt crowded. We had a great lobster dinner (picked up fresh from Trenton bridge lobster pound) there in the house. We used the table in the sunroom with 2 card tables there in the house with plenty of chairs. We ate there almost every night. It was perfect!

Family Gathering

Perfect location for our gathering, easy access to all nearby attractions when and if you choose to go. The property is large and on the beautiful Somes Sound....Coffee on the dock in the early morning and you will see seals, birds and other wildlife, same at sunset. The "Cottage" is large with plenty of open space for all to enjoy time together or split off for other activities. The cottage had everything that we needed, a bit rustic, but that was part of the charm!!! It felt like a real "home"... So comfortable for our family. We made beautiful memories and would go back there again...
