Dory Haven: Cove-Front Home w/ Sunroom, Screened Porch & Waterfront Yard

Affectionately known as Dory Haven, this newly renovated 2BR cove-front cottage features tasteful New England decor, high ceilings, a screened porch, and a sunroom boasting an abundance of windows and waterfront views.

In a prime locale, you’ll have close access to the area’s natural wonders. Traverse the coastal woodlands of Acadia National Park, or hike local peaks like Champlain Mountain and The Beehive.

For explorations nearby, Bartlett’s Landing and Long Pond can be reached in no time.


Relax in the spacious living room, furnished with two cozy sofas, two armchairs, and a gas fireplace. Pick your favorite film from the vast array of DVDs and have a movie night on the 31” TV.

An adjacent sunroom boasts a sleeper sofa and rocking chair, as well as the dining table.


Whip up tasty vacation meals in the open kitchen, outfitted with new appliances, granite countertops, and all the kitchenware needed.

Enjoy morning coffee at the two-person breakfast nook. Gather in the sunroom at the unique live-edge wooden dining table for six and take in beautiful views of the waterfront backyard.


Between two bedrooms and a sleeper sofa, this two-story home sleeps four total. One full bathroom is stocked with a complimentary starter supply of toiletries.

On the top level, the master bedroom comes with a queen bed, while the second bedroom has two twin beds, which can be converted into a king.

On the main level, the bathroom includes a walk-in shower and a separate jetted tub. The full-size sleeper sofa is located in the sunroom.


The whole family will enjoy the expansive grassy backyard. Roast s’mores over the fire pit or go for a swim in the refreshing waters.

Please note that the waterfront is tidal, meaning at certain times of the day, there is no water. However, during high tide, the water is perfect for swimming, kayaking, and canoeing. Keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife, including seals, otters, and Maine seabirds.

End your day with drinks on the deck, with seating for two. Sizzle dinner on the grill, then head to the lower-level screened porch to enjoy an al fresco dinner at the picnic table. This area also offers a two-person table, ideal for a quiet moment at the end of an activity-filled day.


This pet-friendly home includes complimentary Wi-Fi, a washer/dryer, and driveway parking for four cars.


For nearby excursions, launch a kayak from Bartlett’s Landing, which also serves as a wonderful spot to catch a sunset. Or head to Long Pond, a nearly 4-mile long, glacial lake.

Drive 15 minutes to Acadia National Park. Spend your time exploring the woodlands, breathing in the salty air on the rocky shores, and watching for local wildlife.

Explore the coastal town of Bar Harbor, just a 25-minute drive from your home. Indulge in local cuisine, shop the boutiques, or charter a boat to explore the deep blue sea.

You must be 25 years or older to rent this property.

Quaint cottage on a beautiful pond. Best part was the heated porch overlooking the pond where we spent most of our time. Easy access to many trails in Acadia.

Well appointed cottage with great porch and views of the cove. Disappointed that property company had not identified that that the stove fan didn`t work.they said they had inspected the place. When we called company, owner arrived fast, but it was never fixed. 4 days later the contractor for the management company called to say he just noticed that we had problems. Owners were great...contractor disappointing.
Lots of towels and supplies and kitchen equipment made life very comfortable. Would go again.

We really enjoyed our stay here. My son loved getting up early, dressed and going out to the lake to explore. What a relaxing vacation!! We spent every day at Acadia National Park and a few stops in Bar Harbor for lunch and ice cream! Everything was close and convenient. My only complaint was that the beds were very hard. I recommend a thick mattress cover or something for those who need cushion. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had a wonderful stay at this home. Staying by the water was lovely and we have everything we needed at the house. The beds, sheets and bath were all lovely and very comfortable. The owner and turnkey was there for any questions that we had. We were close to everything within Acadia and to a few stores for essentials if needed. We lost power Thursday morning but this home has a generator so we never had to worry about going without.
