We are the happy new owners of Mountain Vista. Before we became owners, we were summer renters here, and returned year after year for its simple beauty and solitude. We live in a very busy city during the rest of the year, and the peaceful setting really speaks to us. We are amazed how dark it gets at night and how many stars you can see. We do not have that in the city, that is for sure!
Our favorite activities are sitting by the fire -- whether it's the fireplace in the living room, or the fire pit outside. We've boiled many lobsters, and probably grilled one too many hot dogs. We cannot imagine a deck without an Adirondack chair, so comfortable chairs were some of our first purchases.
We love how close Acadia is to the cottage. The park has so many great hikes. If you are a photographer or nature-lover, it's hard not to be impressed. Downtown Bar Harbor is great, too, if you want to shop, sight-see or take a cruise. And of course, we were thrilled that our dog was allowed to stay with us when we rented, so when we bought this place we wanted to ensure the same for our guests.
We are looking forward to sharing our home with you and hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Thank you for considering Mountain Vista.

The nights were cool enough to warrant the extravagance of burning some wood in the fireplace, which added to the …
