There are only a handful of properties on Mount Desert Island with the dramatic and spectacular open-ocean frontage that Schooner Head Cottage has. Located just 1/3 mile from the Sand Beach entrance to Acadia National Park, this property enjoys expansive ocean views and amazing granite ledges along the water's edge (access into the water is somewhat limited as the coastline is mostly ledge). The 5 acres of land include lovely trees and grass—a nice retreat for your family—and is very private. Just a 5 minute drive into downtown Bar Harbor (or take the pathway for a refreshing 45 minute walk), and a mile to Sand Beach, one of Acadia's most popular attractions! The 3000 sq foot cottage features a large living/great room, with adjacent dining area and spacious kitchen. There is a massive granite fireplace in the living room, deck access and ocean views. There is a 1/2 bathroom off the great room. On one side of the cottage is a second floor suite, with an open floor plan, featuring a queen bed and two twin daybeds. There are sliding partition doors to separate the queen sleeping area, as well as a full bathroom. In addition there is a lovely new "Murphy" bed with a queen mattress. There is also an awesome upper deck with tremendous views of the ocean! Below the suite, on the first floor, is a queen bedroom (one of the entries into the cottage is off this room). The master bedroom suite is on the other end of the cottage, It features a king bed with fireplace, spacious full bathroom, and a large sitting room with couches (including a queen sleep sofa), atrium, large sauna tub and fabulous stain glass artistry. The location and oceanfrontage of Schooner Head are extraordinary. And the cottage offers a comfortable, spacious respite for your family! One other feature of interest is a basement level billiards room. A small spiral staircase located in the living room takes you down to this room. There is a nice billiards table and some bar stools.
