About Bernhard Mueller

I lived many years in Europe and this is my place in the maine woods. It reminds me so much of Germany/France with the many lakes and forests only that there is much more nature and animals here in Maine. Paradise for me.

Bernhard Mueller purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Why Bernhard Mueller chose Glenburn

Because I fell in love with it. It is in the woods but only 20 minutes from the big shopping centers or the airport. The people who live year round there are very nice and helpful. And the House is very beautifull.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The air is so pure and the water is so clean and the people are so friendly. I have traveled the whole world, but this is home away from home, just perfect and beautiful. Take a cup of coffee in the morning overlooking the pond, watching the deer passing by, what more can you ask for.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were 2 couples staying for 4 nights during the winter. Martin called Don to help us get in the house and Don was very friendly and even brought his dog for us to pet :-)

The beds are very comfortable, sheets and blankets are available, as well as towels. Everything was like new, perfectly clean! The hot tub is awesome, but required a bit of work to set up, because in the winter it is generally off. The kitchen is very well equipped.

We couldn't enjoy a lot of the nature around because it was snowing, but regardless we had an awesome time and highly recommend the place. Certainly worth going back during the Fall.

We came up for a graduation at University of Maine. This house could not have been more perfect. It was clean and well equipped. The grounds were beautiful with lots of chairs and a fire pit. The hot tub was a nice addition too! Andre was very helpful and made sure we had everything that we needed. All in all I would say that we couldn't have asked for more! We will definitely stay here again.

Spacious and secluded!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great. The house was clean and well equipped with everything we needed to enjoy a weekend away. We comfortably fit two families and had plenty of space both indoors and out. The hot tub And fire pit were nice additions to make the property even more appealing.

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle, relax and enjoy wildlife and Maine's beauty, this is the place! If you want more of the noise and attractions, then it is not. For our group of 6 it was perfect. We had plenty of space to be comfortable and the cabin had all the amenities.

Bernhard and Ann were amazing to work with and very accommodating. Everything was clean, well maintained and ready for occupancy. If we had questions during our stay they responded immediately.

The house will not appear in your gps so follow the directions that they provide. We arrived very late at night and following what they provided we got there without any wrong turns.

Visiting Acadia was top on our list. It was about 1 1/2 hours away from the house but with the amazing scenery the trip went rather quickly. Again if you want things closer, this might not be for you. But with everything this has to offer it was a great trade off.

Waking up to wildlife in your yard, trails to walk on, a fishing pond or a short walk to the lake and plenty of fresh air made this the most amazing spot to stay. Even a hot tub, pool and firepit are provided, so get the smores ready!!

Last but not least, when you visit here don't forget to check out the local fare and stop at the parking lot lobster dealer. Fresh lobster to cook at home was unbelievable.

We miss it already and can't wait to go back.

Sadly disappointed in this "Luxury Wood Resort" which seemed to be too secluded also from the owner

  • 1 of 5

We were sadly disappointed with our recent home away stay at the listed property because of the following things.

A/C was listed on this house; air conditioning unit was not able to keep the house cool at all only the stairwell where it was located. We were forced to purchase small personal fans to place at the bedside in order to sleep.

Fully stocked kitchen and house was missing several items such as toilet paper, paper towel, plastic spatula to flip eggs or pancakes, no ironing board as listed of items included and (One) wash cloth in the entire house.

The house was poorly lit or with lighting that didn’t work in several rooms to have only small accent recessed lighting which made it extremely difficult to prepare meals or see in the bathroom while doing makeup.

Upstairs shower sprayed above the occupants head.

Ice maker in the kitchen was inoperable and was not producing ice.

Hot tub was not up to temp and was not useable the first night and a couple nights later chlorine was added by the owner which made it impossible to use because of the extremely strong smell of chlorine.

Fire pit with wood for the 1st night, then upon request for additional wood, the owner’s brother brought over a dull hatchet, worthless camp saw and a broken carpenter’s saw so that we could cut our own firewood.

I was stung by wasps or bees which came from under the walk way to the pond. The owner/manager was notified of this and we were given wasp spray to take care of it ourselves. Looking at older reviews, it was noted that the owner was aware of this problem.

The beach view or lake view should not be included in on this description of the location. The only water view is a pond or the very small child’s pool located in the yard.

The owner should note how long it takes to get to the coast and to town, not just put down the mileage which is deceiving. It is only 40 miles to the coast, but they fail to tell you that it takes almost 2 hours to get there from the property.

Several reviews noted how pleasant and helpful the owner was during their stay at this home. We never met the owner and had only talked to the manager twice along with the owner’s brother twice.

Once we returned home, my wife contacted the owner about our stay and he was less than receptive to anything that she said.

Owner's Response: On the rental agreement, which you signed it says:Upon arrival,Guests shall examine the property. If Guests do not report any exeptions or changes, Guests agree that the Property is in good order, operable,safe,clean and in rentable condition. Exeptions or changes to this conditiona must be reported immediately upon detection by Guests to the Owner or Owners Agent in writing to our e- mail adress. Likewise any damage ocurring, during the stay shall be brought by Guests to the attention of the Owner or Owners Agent immediately upon detection in written to our e-mail adress. None if this was done by you. The lights work perfectly (Kitchen and Bathroom)but they shut off automatically if they get hot, before the house burns down. That means you left the lights on all the time, so they shut of until they are cold, then they turn on again. The kitchen light is suficcient, if you turned also the under cabinet lights on . The switches are hidden under the cabinet and hard to see. If you would have asked, the property manager would have shown you. Your the first to complain about the air Conditioning after you rented it. If you would have complained at arrival we would have put the 2 additional window A/C (which are locked in the furnace room) in the windows of the bedrooms. If you would have asked at arrival for more toilet paper, wash close we would have gladly given you more.The Icemaker workes perfectly. Only if it is full the ice starts to stick together when not used for a few days. Then one needs to shake the Ice box a little to make the ice come down. If you would have reported this we would have gladly helped you. The Manager changed the water completely in the hot tub and did not add any chlorine, as it does not need it for the first few days, so I dont know what you smelled.? There is an ironing board, if you would have asked, we would have shown you. Nowhere in the discription is says that the house sits on the shore of pusshaw lake. If you would have read it or even looked at the pictures you would have noticed that. I dont know how you drive, or if you encountered some road work, or got lost, but it took me never 2 hours to drive to Bar harbour. I can only put the distance to Bar Harbour on my add, as everyday the traffic is different and depending on the season and road work. For the garden fire, if I am there I cut some wood. Nowhere in my description it says fire wood included. Unfortunately I can not be there all the time but the forest is full
