Why Owner chose Bernard
Waterfront property on Mount Desert Island is a precious commodity. This cabin is not fancy but the location an views are as good as they get.

A cozy cabin with a beautiful view.
My husband and I spent a week here celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The view is absolutely beautiful. The cabin is steps away from the ocean. We saw bald eagles, herrings, seals, schools of fish from the dock. It is so peaceful. You can hear the waves in the morning and at night from the bed. The sunsets are stunning. The cabin was well equipped with everything you would need to cook meals. We cooked mostly on the outdoor grill. There are some neighbors about 100 yards away that have access to the docks but it wasn't that much of an issue. We would definately go back.
Really cool location close to Bernard Mountain which is a fun and challenging hike. Not too far from everything you need, including golf, seafood restaurants, hiking, rentals, and markets. Loved the place, it has all your essentials, and the pier and dock are great to sit out on.
My boyfriend and I planned a trip to Maine to see the fall foliage change and to go on hikes. The cabin was perfect. We listened to the sounds of the waves and woke up to amazing views. One of our favorite things to do on this trip was eat breakfast and take in the sounds and view. We used the kayaks that are provided near the cabin, which was a good time. Ben was really helpful when we had trouble finding the cabin. I would 100% recommend! The perfect getaway spot. There’s a sports bar near by that we went to named Joey’s Place. There is a laundry mat connected to it. It is somewhat close to the cabin and good for a quick bite to eat (hamburger, wings, etc) and to watch a big game. We bought fire wood on the side of the road in front of people’s houses for $3-$4 a bundle.
A wonderful getaway
My wife and I spent our honeymoon in the waterfront cabin. It was so cozy and so close to the ocean that you can listen to the waves as you fall asleep. One of the things we liked best about our stay was waking up every morning to have coffee on the dock. It was well equipped with what we needed to have a peaceful, relaxing week. Ben was very helpful with answering any questions we had... If you're looking for something simple, quiet, and close to nature, this is the place to go. We hope to be back soon.
So you want to get away? This is the place.
If you are into rustic close quarter living, there is nothing better than this place. Amazing views, peace and quiet. My wife and I love the outdoors and could not have been happier with Ben's place. Amazing sunsets from the comfort of your bed and waking up to amazing views. The open walls of this place are awesome. It was wonderful to be just steps from the ocean and minutes from southwest harbor. So much to do and see we will defiantly be using this place as our base camp for our return adventures to MDI. Everything was clean and comfortable when we got there. The out door shower is always inviting and great for a late night shower under the stars. Ben was a great host and provided everything we needed. Great communication and responded quickly to our inquiries. This place is a Gem,
Wonderful, Cozy, and Private
We loved the cabin's closeness to the water and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Ben's cabin. We hiked and biked and explored while on MDI, but we always enjoyed coming back to the cabin on the quiet side. The cabin was clean and well kept. Ben provided everything we needed for cooking our meals. We were appreciative of having the two packable chairs for taking to sit out on the dock or on the shore.
The day after we arrived we were surprised when a barge/boat arrived to put out the floating dock. It was very nice sitting out on the floating dock.
We also enjoyed the ability to open up the wide doors to let in the breeze.
Incredible waterfront property with private dock Located on beautiful Mount Desert Island close to Acadia National Park
