Kayaking, hiking, bird watching, reading or exploring Acadia National Park and Pettit Manan Wildlife Refuge are some of the activities available. Once here, it is hard to leave. Peace beyond belief! Pet-friendly!

Privy Point is nestled on the end of a peninsula, with water on two sides. The cottage was built in 1947 for use as a duck hunting cabin. Set on a rock outcropping, the cottage is as close as you could possibly get to the water's edge. But don't let that scare you! Its elevation protects the cottage from water intrusion. What you do get for being so close is the lovely sound of the high tidal water lapping at the rocks. It's such a soothing sound.

To get here from the main road, visitors follow a dirt road almost 1/4 mile, past beautiful native fir and birch trees. Stover's Cove will be on your left. Parking is in a small lot right near the house.

The main room consists of a living room area and a large table with seating for 8, facing the great window to Narraguagus Bay. The room has a working fireplace, a wicker couch and two rockers, and two day-beds that can be used to accommodate sleeping.

Entry is through the kitchen, which is complete with a refrigerator, gas stove/oven, microwave, coffee maker, and farmhouse sink. Dishes are washed by hand as no dishwasher is included. We're a bit rustic here, to a point! The kitchen has a skylight for natural light and to cool off the cottage during the warmer summer days.

The master bedroom is located at one end of the cottage and consists of two single beds and two closets. One closet houses an apartment-sized stackable washer/dryer unit. A full-sized bathroom with sink, shower, and toilet is adjoining this room.

There are two small bunk rooms with a half bath in between them. A screened-in porch is accessed by going through one bunk room, and it has wicker furniture to seat 4-5 people. This is a favorite spot in the late afternoon.

A deck is on the east side if the cottage, facing the water. Sunrise comes on strong and warm here, and it's a great spot to enjoy watching the lobster boat activity on the bay or to watch Bald Eagles, heron, cormorant, seals, osprey, and other wildlife. An LP gas grill is located on the deck as well as seating for 6-8 people.

Off the north end of the deck is a ramp that leads to a floating dock. From here, you can catch crabs, fish, launch kayaks or other small boats. The dock will accommodate larger boats up to about 20-24 feet or so, but mainly during mid and high tides. The float sometimes bottoms out on the sand during extreme low tides.

A mooring may be available. Please inquire if you wish to bring a boat. A public boat launch is available in town.
