Windward Cottages in Bar Harbor, Maine

ocean view of Western Bay

KayakingTreat yourselves to a vacation cottage rental on the water at Windward Cottages in Bar Harbor Maine just minutes from Acadia National Park. Windward Cottages is secluded and situated on 18 acres of shore front and wood land property. The ride through the pine laden woods of our driveway takes you well away from traffic to our private cottage rental haven on the shore of Bar Harbor’s Western Bay.

CanoeingAll six of our water front vacation cottage rentals have an inspiring view of the bay. The picture window in each cottage frames Maine’s natural coastal beauty at its best. Experience the beauty up close and take out one of our two canoes or kayaks and enjoy a peaceful paddle on the quiet side of Bar Harbor.

Bar Harbor, MaineWhile Acadia National Park and the village of Bar Harbor are headlined for activities in Down East Maine there is more to Mt. Desert Island that will have you coming back, year after year to discover it all. With so much to do the hardest part of your vacation will be to decide how much to fit in during your stay; take a hike in Acadia National Park, ride a bike or a horse-drawn carriage on the park's carriage trails, take a cruise to see the whales or the puffins, sail on a sunset cruise, shop the village stores of Mt. Desert Island, experience a guided bird or kayak tour, drive the park loop road or take one of the Explorer Free Shuttle Bus rides around the island, swim the ocean at Sand Beach, ride a ferry boat to visit an island, or just relax and sample the Jordan Pond House tea and popovers or visit any one of the Island’s restaurants to find Maine’s famous lobster dinner and blueberry pie on the menu.
