Spindle Cottage

Pets: Call / Approx 20 Miles to Bar Harbor
Starting at $1,950.00/wk (All Inclusive)

Spindle Cottage is uniquely situated, facing southward at the top of Union River Bay. The cottage offers guests wonderful views in every direction. Watch boats come and go for miles down the bay or look a little closer to home and enjoy wildlife at the waters edge including seals, eagles and other waterfowl. Away from the glow of city lights, night time star gazing is a must do! At low tide you can explore the rocky shore and mussel flats covered in drapes of colorful seaweed.

Inside, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home has everything guests could need. Open and spacious, the main living space has many windows to take in the scenery. Changing with every season, there is always something to enjoy; birds and seals playing in the summer sunshine, a coastline ablaze with the colors of Fall or watch snow gently fall outside while you enjoy the warmth of the electric fireplace. With all three bedrooms on the second floor, you are still captivated with views of the bay. Will you be the lucky ones to enjoy the bedroom with attached deck?

While the views are captivating, making it difficult to leave, this gem is conveniently located to explore all areas of Acadia National Park. From Bar Harbor to the Schoodic Peninsula, your perfect Acadia vacation awaits.

Beautiful fall foliage stay

Spindle Cottage was certainly lovely, right on the river with the wildlife. Would think twice about staying during heat of summer though, no A/C and lots of glass with no shades

Response from Vacation Cottages

In response to this helpful comment we have installed shades on windows where the sun is most intense as well as brought in a nice, large vertical oscillating fan for the open first floor living area for cooling. We hope this helps!

Memories to last a lifetime!

Thank you for such a lovely stay at this beautiful home. It is truly the most thoughtfully stocked house we have ever rented. We made crepes one morning thanks to a crepe pan! We loved the view, our seal visitors, sunsets, watching the tides, gulls, and eagles. The kids found so many treasures during low tide. We explored Acadia & Bar Harbor, Lamoine and Ellsworth, and we’re so grateful to be able to come back and rest at home base. We have made memories to last a lifetime.

Your home was the perfect “home base” for our adventures…hiking in Acadia (“Beehive” was crazy); sea kayaking in Somes Sound (got to see bald eagles soaring-very cool); and lobster at Beals.
It was a perfect place to relax in the evening. We got a nightly visit from one of the resident seals, and watching the birds during the tide transitions was entertaining. =) And, the nightly hunt for sea glass.
Thank you for a great backdrop to “end of summer” vacation 2017!
