Update- With a record number of visitors to Acadia National Park last year, we're anticipating a busy upcoming, spring, summer and fall '20 season! We're offering a $100/week stipend and basic accommodations/living amenities to an individual(or couple) interested in hospitality and light grounds maintenance.

In the past this arrangement has allowed caretakers time for part or full time work. Tasks are largely cleaning of the main cottage and performing minor necessary maintenance. There is excellent opportunity for seasonal employment with the National Park, adventure programs or dining establishments etc. within a few miles of the property. We've also prepared almost a half acre of garden space with organic soil enrichment.


Main description-

Our little slice of heaven is located just a few miles west of Acadia National Park, in downeast Maine. We're inviting visitors to enjoy our properties forested, quiet and private accommodations.

Accommodations for rent are an off grid, 450ft square cottage with running water, a full kitchen, bathroom, wood stove and sleeping loft. Please be prepared to devote around 10 hours per week to cleaning the cottage between renters.

In the evenings we sometimes like to swim at Sand Beach, enjoy a local beer, maybe head to town to visit the library for wifi, or catch some live music in Bar Harbor. Ellsworth has a good selection of eateries and bars, hardware stores and a coop as well as Wal mart, home depot, and Shaws/Hannafords.

We encourage guests to explore the excellent opportunities for recreation in our area. You’re welcome to bring your own vehicle but could easily get by just fine riding one of our bikes or car pooling.

The National parks Island Explorer bus service is free. It services all towns on the island and our adjacent mainland town, Ellsworth. The bus service provides a bike rack on its buses. In other words a bicycle will get you quite a long way in this area if you're without a car.

Please be courteous and polite. We’ve welcomed visitors for years and we’re very easy going. We’d love to meet you!
