Special People, Special Place!
This is a great place for your family gathering!

Family Gatherings, Family Reunions, and Family Vacations.

You'll love this sprawling natural coastal resort for family gatherings of all sizes. There is a lot to do on premises and a lot of space in which to do it. There are about 60 acres, 10 spacious family-sized cottages and cabins and a no frills Hostel@Acorn with six private rooms, shared bathrooms, kitchen and public spaces.

[The environs make great oil painting subjects.]During the spring, summer, and fall all our Maine Cottage Rentals can be used for family and group gatherings of up to 55 people. It's a great place for families with children. With the comfort of spacious cottages and a rambling coastal property families and groups of friends find this the perfect setting for a relaxed gathering. The cottages have an assortment of kitchens or kitchenettes for the preparation of meals.

We are able to coordinate catered events and gatherings at the beach or in a building. Call to inquire about your special event, reunion, anniversary or celebration.

[This is a great place for catered events.] But, locally are many very fine restaurants and lunch counters. Bucks Harbor Market and Eggemoggin Country store are but a quick drive away. In both places you will find groceries, newspapers, morning coffee and great muffins and donuts. Good liquor supply too. Fresh fish in the cooler case and ice cream in the freezer.

  • Family On Site Activities right here at Oakland House Cottages by the Side of the Sea.

    [Kayakers and East Penobscot Bay landing.]
  • More Activities, Local Attractions and Things To Do Around the Blue Hill Peninsula and environs are but a short drive away.

  • And more nearby activities in Blue Hill, Stonington, Mt. Desert, and more.

  • Are There Fairies Living at the Bottom of my Garden? Our Fairy Houses flier for children. This one is a big file and will take some time to download. Do it last if you've got "dial up". It's worth it for kids.
