Property Description:

Surrounded by well-tended vegetable and flower gardens, this darling little bungalow in Otter Creek is host to much of the produce supplied to The Burning Tree restaurant next door. Lovingly furnished with attractive interiors and comfortable spaces, “Thelma’s Cottage” is also a great spot to host your vacation! Acadia National Park’s Park Loop Rd, Cadillac’s South Ridge Trail, numerous other popular park attractions are all just down the road. Explore some of Otter Creek’s nearby village trails to walk to Thunder Hole! Bar Harbor’s village center is only 8 minutes away, as is Seal Harbor's charming village and sandy beach.

FIRST FLOOR: Enter the kitchen door from the driveway to a nice sun-filled kitchen space with glass top electric stove. On the right side of the kitchen is a sweet Dining Room with table that seats 4-6 comfortably. To the left is a comfortably furnished Living Room overlooking the front yard and gardens. Note that the sofa opens to a sofa-bed for additional sleeping space if preferred. Down a short hallway are two bedrooms: a Bedroom with Twins and a Bedroom with Queen bed (new mattress as of 2022!). Both bedrooms share a full bath with combined tub and shower, situated at the end of the hall. Laundry facilities are in the basement, accessed in the kitchen.

OUTDOOR SPACES: Outdoor picnic table and seating can be found in the back yard, as well as extensive vegetable and flower gardens.

NOTE: No Dishwasher. Owner’s restaurant employees may on occasion frequent the garden for harvesting or tending, but will at all times do so discreetly and unobtrusively. Your privacy will be well-guarded!

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.


Comfort and convenience!

Staying at Thelma's Cottage is a unique experience. The pastel painted walls hung with vibrant original art are a welcome contrast to the knotty pine and nautical themed vacation rentals here. Looking out the window to the vegetable garden we saw big bright yellow squash blossoms and on lucky days the neighbor's free range chickens from the farm next door. Driving around the often summer congested roads through Acadia National Park to get to hiking trailheads was minimized by the cottage's central location and a greatly appreciated convenience. All in all, a relaxing and pleasant place to stay.
