Other things to note
We charge extra for pets and cannot accomodate cats. The cottage faces the sunset, Blue Hill Mountain and Newberry Neck across the inter-coastal ocean area of Union River Bay. The confluence of fresh and salt water create an interesting habitat for wildlife. A small set of wooden stairs steps down to a typical rich Maine tidal zone.
At low tide rocks draped in thick tangle of yellow-green and brown-purple seaweeds (rockweed) surround our pebble beach and are an important part of our coastal ecosystem.The shore also has mussels and nooks for beach combing and exploring. A year-round brook empties into the Bay on the south side of the property and encourages birds and other wildlife to visit the property.
A large deck and the balcony off the second-story bedroom are great places to picnic or for sitting still and enjoying songbirds, ducks, loons, gulls, eagles, on occasion some wild turkeys, squirrels, even seals, and osprey, depending on the time of year.

Quiet, private home with plenty of elbow room on the water. We are 400 feet from the road. The house is centrally located to the area surrounding Acadia National Park. Mount Desert Island is about three mile away. Easy access to the Island and the coastal area East and West of the house is greatly appreciated by return guests. We are 5 minutes from BHB (airport) but are clear of all air traffic noise.

Native to Bar Harbor Maine transplanted to Portland Oregon where I run a non-profit called Still Standing Oregon, which we created to advocate for measures that increase the market value of seismically retrofitted homes. It turns out that extremely liberal Oregon is not as farsighted as one might think regarding planning for the risks associated with a major earthquake. My wife and I vacation in places on the water. We love to kayak.
