We loved the Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from the busy city of New York to visit Shore acres Cottage. With our 4 babies...This place was beautiful, charming and felt like home. The Hemingway family made it super special for us as they provided just what we needed for our visit. The location was perfect for Hiking in Acadia. We loved walking along "Jordans Pond" and enjoyed all the good eats in close proximity to Lamoine. Our stay was wonderful & the memories that were made will forever remain in our hearts. God bless. Love always... Tim, Jen, Haley, Shea, Levi & baby Caleb.

Great location and yard

  • 4 of 5

This spot, just a short walk to the beach and about 40 minutes to Bar Harbor was a nice and affordable way to enjoy the beauties of Downeast Maine! The yard has a sandbox, swing, fire pit, toys and plenty of room to run. My 4 and 8 year old kids loved it! Lamoine Beach is quiet and beautiful with great tide pool exploration and calm waters for swimming and kayaking. (There is a rental place pretty close, but reserve ahead) There is also a pristine pond for warmer swimming nearby. For lobster, there is a guy down the road that will boil them for you in his yard. Caveats: If you crave total privacy, this is more of a community area with other rentals and the owners nearby. The rug was a little musty and the kitchen could use some more implements and basic supplies, and the bathroom needs a shelf or something to place your toiletries. But all in all an excellent choice!

Owner's Response: The musty carpet smell must be mistaken for what we turn"cottage smell"..The cottage was built in the 40's and on ground clearance flat stones. There is flow thru ventilation under the cottage but it is what it is. The carpet is professionally cleaned every six months. In the small tiled bath there is a flat top hamper for the purpose of placing toiletries . Regarding the kitchen implements and basic supplies, we have no idea what is needed. We supply napkins, paper towels, pepper/salt, dishwasher detergent & spot remover. Hand soap, SOS,dish cloths & towels. Toaster, microwave, automatic coffee pot & tea pot. There is ample dinner ware, dishes & pots and pans & cooking utensils. Electric fry pan. In 22 years, this is the first we have mention of missing basics. We shall purge the available inventory immediately and take corrective action.

A wonderful quiet and clean cottage near the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation, once again at Shore Acres cottage! Our family has been vacationing at this property since 1997, when our daughter was just three years old. We love our stays here so much that we have been returning every summer, missing only three or four seasons in the past twenty years. This cottage has become part of our family's summer tradition. The cottage is impeccably clean, with all the convenient amenities. We love the accessibility of Lamoine Beach, just a five minute walk from the cottage. Many of our favorite activities are a short drive away in Acadia National Park. We love the hiking on the many stunning national park trails, biking on the famous carriage trails, and sight-seeing activities, such as whale watches and nature cruises. Two highlights for our children over the years remain playing on the famous Sand Beach in the national park, and eating popovers at the Jordan Pond House restaurant. The owners always make every effort to provide a comfortable stay for us, and provide excellent customer service. We have recommended this cottage to many of our friends over the years, and continue to highly recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful vacation along the Maine coast.

Wonderful and homey cottage near everything

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was everything that our family wanted and needed and loved. Kids loved the bunk beds and huge yard with swing and sand box. We loved the front porch, home-like home, full kitchen, and closeness to everything we wanted to do. It was so nice to come home to Comfort and quietness after a full day out in Acadia. This place is so peaceful. The homeowners are so sweet and helpful and are just wonderful people to meet. Everyone should get a chance to spend some Quality time In Maine in this cozy

Cottage. We will definitely be back!

lovely place, hope to come back!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was cute and clean, and had everything to make our stay easy and enjoyable. Large, well-kept yard that the kids made great use of, so close to the beach, an easy place to relax after a day of adventuring. A really lovely family owns this place, and they are great hosts. We all enjoyed riding in the model T, too!! As our son said, "it was all good!"

Very nice North woods getaway

This was a perfect cottage close to Lamoine Beach. It was extremely clean with the attentive owners right next door. About 45 min from Acadia and Bar Harbor. Well kept grounds as well
