Cottage on the Waterfront

The one thing many people desire when they come to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park is to stay in a home that is next to the ocean. Founder’s Cottage is that home and one that is an exceptional value. Just look at the photos and you can almost hear the sound of the waves gently lapping against the shoreline.
