In 1903 Sonogee was built for Henry Lane Eno who became chief ornithologist for Lafayette National Park, which became known as Acadia National Park in 1919.

The next occupant was A. Atwater Kent from Burlington, Vermont.

Sonogee was well-known due to Kent's extravagant parties with three orchestras and tons of guests, some of whom arrived in the family yacht that was used as a shuttle during the parties.

Kent died in 1949. In 1976 the cottage became a nursing home.
