Fern Cove is a 4 bedroom/2 bath summer cottage on a small quaint island off of Acadia National Park & near Bar Harbor. The Swans Island Ferry, from Bass Harbor, transports you into this gorgeous, tranquil paradise, for a wonderful vacation by the sea! The decks overlook the ocean where you can enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail. Enjoy a book on the porch swing or sun bathe on the open deck....our house is very secluded & private. It is nestled among 3 acres of ferns & pine trees.
This is a special place enjoyed by our family for 40 years. We would like to share this gift with some very special people who want to experience island life in this beautiful setting. Nature lovers, bird-watchers and hikers will find this to be the ideal spot to appreciate and indulge in these activities. This is the place for you if you want to disconnect, unwind and recharge. We are animal and kid friendly.
Canoe, rowboat, charcoal grill, clubhouse.

Other things to note
There is a general store on the island that stocks all of the essentials and many gourmet items. This is a dry island so you will need to import your spirits from the mainland. The island also has a take-out establishment where you can enjoy all of the ocean's bounty as well as many luncheon and dinner specialties. The lobster co-op is down by the pier so you can pamper yourself with a "Downeast" dinner.
