Property Description:

If the thought of relaxing on a front porch with a cup of coffee and the calls of loons, gulls, or a distant lobster boat appeals to you, then consider Ames Family South Cottage for your next visit to Maine. Wrapped in the warm history of generations of family gatherings, this rustic camp typifies a Maine getaway. Overlooking a sweeping grassy meadow that leads to picturesque Seal Cove, this cozy cottage enjoys direct access to a pleasant swimming area or put-in for your kayak. Don't let the fact that Cape Road runs between you and the shore deter you - this sleepy little corner of Mt. Desert Island is rarely visited by those thronging nearby Acadia National Park or Bar Harbor. Peace and quiet abound, and once there, you're likely to be content never to leave! However, if you do choose to explore Acadia's trails, Southwest Harbor's restaurants, and other offerings across the island, they're only a short 15 to 25 minute drive from this sweet home. And did we mention sunsets? With westerly views, every evening is certain to produce an ever changing show!

FIRST FLOOR: Spacious Living Room with piano and large dining table that seats six and can open to seat ten to twelve. Living Room features water views and plenty of games, good books, and even a dart board for rainy afternoons. Pantry area with wet bar, sunny kitchen with table that seats six, and views overlooking meadow and cove. Although rustic, this kitchen has benefitted from years of service and is well-stocked with ample cookware, dish ware, and just about any gadget you could use! Small Bedroom with single bed. Half Bath. Bedroom with king. Bedroom with twin beds. Shared Full Bath with tub and after-thought shower. Outdoor shower.

OUTDOOR SPACES: Furnished, open sunny deck and covered porch overlooking meadows and water.

Please Note: During your stay, the adjacent North Cottage may be occupied by family or other tenants. Ask rental agent for details.

About this area:

The 'quiet side' of Mt. Desert Island, which includes Bass Harbor, Tremont, Seal Cove, and Bernard on the southern and western sides of the island, is much more rural in nature and only about twenty to thirty minutes to major park entrances. What Bass Harbor lacks in shopping, it makes up for in seafood restaurants and local color, as this is a village with a true 'Down East' flavor, as well as the famous Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse.


Quiet side

We loved our two weeks at the Ames South Cottage. The views are incredible; sunsets are a delight and the stars are fantastic! The property is rustic, but totally comfortable. The camp has a warm family feel with lots of games, puzzles and books.
