Cove's Edge Seaside Cottage

Home – Cove’s Edge

Cove’s Edge Seaside Cottage offers you an opportunity to sample Acadia National Park, lobster, chowder, dining out, boating, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, ocean and freshwater swimming, hiking, walking, bicycling, blueberry picking, birding, garden touring, shopping in quaint boutiques, and more — or to just get some quiet relaxation and reading time in your cozy oceanfront cottage. Cove’s Edge Seaside Cottage is a 3-bedroom, 3-bath house right on the water with your own access to a private stretch of pebbled shore, with expansive views of the cove, islands, and open ocean beyond. It has a game room and two relaxing patios in addition to living, kitchen, and dining rooms with high-end, custom finishes in this architect-designed home. It is well suited to accommodate multiple generations or a small group of friends, where you can both enjoy common rooms as well as preserve your privacy.

You can enjoy any of several cozy nooks to settle in with a good book. Or play ping pong with friends or family on a day at home. You are surrounded by gorgeous ocean views that you can enjoy from nearly every room in the house. And you are steps away from your own private stretch of beach, where you can put in a canoe or kayak, beach comb for shells and sea treasures, or simply enjoy the view out to Maine’s famous island-dotted shore, with the Nature Conservancy’s Placentia Island in the distance, and Swan’s Island just beyond. Every bedroom has an en suite bath. You are less than five minutes’ drive from the Acadia National Park trails called Wonderland and Ship’s Harbor, which bring you out to gorgeous rocky bluffs along the open ocean and Maine’s famous rocky coast. A minute more and you’re at Bass Harbor Head Light, the most photographed lighthouse on the U.S. East Coast. In five minutes you’re in Southwest Harbor with ample opportunities for shopping, dining, and boating; in two more minutes you’re hiking Acadia Mountain or swimming in Echo Lake; and in ten minutes you’re in Bar Harbor, with its quaint shops, restaurants, whale watching, naturalist boating, sailing, deep-sea diving, Park tours, and many other opportunities.
Few locations in the United States can compare to the beauty and diversity of Mt. Desert Island (MDI) and Acadia National Park. Acadia National Park and its famous gateway towns are treasured the world over as some of the most beautiful spots “where the mountains meet the sea.” Ocean, lakes, mountains, miles and miles of hiking trails, dedicated bicycling and walking trails, gorgeous countryside, and the towns of Tremont, Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor, and Bar Harbor provide unlimited opportunities for relaxation and recreation. Come for some much-needed rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation at Cove’s Edge Seaside Cottage!

Excellent home for visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park
We have used VRBO a number of times and I can say this is the best rental we have enjoyed. Exactly as pictured and described. Peter and Joy have a very nice home. The view of a gorgeous bay could not be better. Fantastic views of the tide going way out and back in twice a day. Our group, two couples and one of our adult children, had a great time. We loved the ping pong table, the bay window, the comfortable beds with great linens and fluffy pillows, and the kitchen. The entire property is squeaky clean. The kitchen was well stocked with all the basics for cooking and serving. Plus there we lots of extras like cooking oil, coffee filters, sugar, spices etc. I will make a suggestion for future renters. Visit the home before going to the store so you can buy what you need. Hannaford Supermarket is about 20 minutes away. For instance, we had to buy toilet paper, paper towels along with our breakfast/lunch foods. Also the coffee filters there were too small (2 instead of 4) for the Mr. Coffee maker. Finally be sure to enter the correct town (Tremont) for the home into your GPS because there is an identical address in another small town very nearby. Overall an excellent value and we will stay there again.

Perfect spot to gather 3 high school friends along with spouses and catch up. Easy/convenient drive to Bar Harbor, Arcadia National Park and watching sunsets at Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse. Our hosts, Joy and Peter, were responsive to our questions and needs. We would highly recommend their Cove's Edge property to anyone interested in visiting Maine.

Amazing Vacation Home
When we first arrived at Cove's Edge our children were so excited that this property was right on the water that they ran to the beach before we even entered the house. The house was clean and provided everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. The Ping Pong table was a huge hit with our family and we had many tournaments to see who was the best. We enjoyed the view that the cottage offered and we even saw a seal in the cove one evening. My daughter loved going out at low tide to look for shells and other things left in the sand. We loved our stay and would go back in a heartbeat.
