Located in the quiet village of Bernard, this 1880 farmhouse has been refurbished in keeping with the period. Some modern conveniences are still present, but the cozy feeling of living on an island in a farmhouse in1880, can still be experienced. You can almost imagine hearing the farmyard noises. Benson Cottage has an entry that leads into the kitchen with it's original cast iron sink. New counter tops and painted cupboards have been added to highlight the sink. Beside the kitchen is the music room with a piano, cd player and more ~ The living room is opposite the hallway that leads to a stairway to the upstairs. There are 2 bedrooms ~ one, with queen-sized bed and the other has a full bed. Each of the bedrooms is large enough for a twin bed to be added, (which requires advanced notice, if needed). The full bathroom has beautiful new tiles on the floor and is centrally located, for convenience, by the bedrooms The Bernard Library, Back Beach and Thurston's Wharf are within walking distance. Thurston's Wharf has fresh seafood,(and more) for lunch and dinner and a new bar for libations. It's about 5 miles to Southwest Harbor and many more restaurants, shopping and more. If you prefer to eat-in, there are dishes and cookware to create your holiday meals. Added, in 2016, is a washer and dryer!
