Treehouse

The Acadia Treehouse is a year-round guest suite centrally located on Mount Desert Island. Acadia Treehouse has a deck overlooking a spruce forest. The interior has a private bedroom with furnishings, a television, closet, and large bed. There is a complete, full separate bathroom with tub and shower. All linens and towels are provided. The large open floor plan includes a big seating area with two couches (one is a sleep sofa), satellite television, wireless Internet, dining table, and wet bar area. The wet bar is equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, toaster, electric coffeepot with timer, two cooking burners, electric griddle, and tabletop convection oven. All cooking utensils and dishes are included. Good insulation and an efficient propane heater assure a toasty atmosphere.

Mount Desert Island is home to Acadia National Park, a National Park Service gem. There are park sites located throughout the island, making this central location ideal. The village of Somesville in the Town of Mount Desert is the historic site of the first lasting settlement (1761) on Mount Desert Island. It has a post office, a library, a charming view overlooking Somes Sound, a Mount Desert Island Historical Society site with a famous walking bridge, and the convenience store Somesville One Stop. More complete shopping can be found in nearby Southwest Harbor, Bar Harbor, or Ellsworth.

If your search is for a place to sit and read among the trees, relax, paint, write, do some photography, or just dream on a lazy summer day, the Treehouse can answer your needs. If you want to explore the diversity of Acadia National Park, you will be close to Acadia's loop road, hiking trails, picnic areas, ocean and lake swimming, carriage roads for walking or bicycling, the beautiful ocean, and rocky coastline. If you want to sample a faster pace, Bar Harbor is about a 15 minute drive away. We are also about a one hour drive from the smaller downeast Schoodic section of Acadia National Park. It's a great day trip!

Acadia Treehouse can accommodate a maximum of four guests. All bedding, towels, and linens are included. We also have two televisions, one receives satellite stations, a vcr with movies, and radio.
