Now here is a little side trip on your way to the Bar Harbor coast that will put a smile on you face for the rest of the summer because who doesn't love bunnies?!

If you have never been to Cottontail Cottage Rabbit Rescue you are missing out on a wonderful experience and a very heart driven venture by Jenny and Matt Nichols. This Sunday June 25th you'll want to grab the entire family and stop by their Open House.

This is a free event, although donations for the buns will be greatly appreciated. Activities include:

  • There will be guided tours of the Bunny Barn and Rabbitat.
  • Strolling the grounds of Cottontail Cottage and enjoying the perennial and organic gardens.
  • Face painting (bunny faces, of course!)
  • A bake sale (with bun-inspired delicious treats by our chef extraordinaire, Jenny), lemonade stand.
  • Raffle table (Betsy will be raffling off some amazing items) so bring cash.
  • Bunny education for all**
  • Bunny petting area

Although, this is a free event, we are hoping to raise some much needed funds for the bunnies and have created some fun ways for you to spend it (100% Bunny Profit.)

**We also hope to educate the public about rabbits and their behaviors and needs. Rabbits are complex animals and there is a lot to learn. So while you are there you can feel free to ask any of our volunteers (they will be wearing bunny t-shirts) as many questions as you'd like.

Cottontail Cottage is located at 21 Cottontail Lane Lamoine Maine.

Directions: Go up the hill past the Lamoine General Store. Keep going 2 1/2 miles until you get to a super sharp corner (Lamoine Corner.) In the middle of this, take a right onto "Shore Road" (there will be signs.) Go 1/4 mile and you will see a sign to Cottontail Cottage. Parking will be past our driveway on the side of the road. Please respect our neighbors and do not block their roads.

We hope to see everyone there! Feel free to "share" this event with your friends + family.
