The historic village of Somesville on Mt. Desert Island in the state of Maine is home to postcard views and this tiny blue shingled cottage:

I’ve been covering so many grand, expensive houses lately on my blog, I thought it was high time for some cottage love.

Franklin Cottage is just a stone’s throw away from scenic Acadia National Park.

The pint-sized dwelling only has one bedroom and one bathroom and is currently being used as a vacation rental.

This cottage is actually one of three in a cluster of historic homes on the property. “Franklin” caught my eye because it is just so darn quaint and unique.

It rents for between $825 – $925 per week.

There’s not much to it in terms of square footage, but Franklin has interesting touches in every corner – like the decorative finials on the exposed rafters!
