Our eco-friendly, naturally set 60-acre compound stretches along a sunset facing expanse of prime oceanfront. There are 10 sophisticatedly rustic and up-scale one- and two-bedroom cottages scattered along the shore front or nestled amongst the trees. They have spacious living rooms, real wood-burning fireplaces, and hide-a-bed couches that can sleep another person or two. Some have full kitchens and others kitchenettes. Daily housekeeping and the laying of fresh firewood in the fireplaces (in season) is included in every cottage. Our staff lives on site. We have converted an 11th cottage into our no frills, budget friendly Hostel at Acorn. It has six private rooms with a combination of bed arrangements from a single twin bed to a room with both a queen bed and a twin bed. There are shared bathrooms and public spaces in Hostel at Acorn. Nearby are numerous art galleries, nature preserves, crafts and antique shops, and bookstores. Blue Hill is just 15 minutes away; Stonington and Castine are 25 minutes away; Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are about an hour’s drive away.
