Slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

My spouse and I vacationed here with our two small dogs at the end of June. Upon arrival we were greeted with a personalized sign welcoming us which was very sweet. The house was cozy, clean, organized and had everything we needed to cook homemade meals. There is a beautiful view of the cove area from the deck and we spent much of our time on the deck enjoying the views, sounds of the land and reading our books. At night we had a fire in the prepared fit pit they had prepared for us and a perfect little area to sit. We also brought our kayaks and would track the tides to take long kayak rides enjoying the scenery of the coast. I imagine only the brave would swim in the water at this location, small ocean creature lurk beneath the surface and I didn't want to find out what they were! We did try to fish but were unsuccessful. Overall, we would vacation here again. The owners, Gayle and Rob, were attentive, sweet and obviously care very much about this home they share with their guests. Thank you for having us!

Great house with all the amenities and good location

  • 4 of 5

Out of the way quite house that's close enough for day excursions to the Park and Mt. Desert island. Interior was modern and clean and exterior was great for sitting on the deck or having a camp fire. House includes almost everything you need!

Great secluded place yet close to Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

My family, which includes 2 teenagers, stayed at this home from 7.31.16 through 8.5.16. The home has been completely updated and was very clean. It had plenty of towels and linens, however the house does have a washer and dryer which we used just to stay on top of our own laundry. The location is ideal for those wanting to frequent Acadia and Bar Harbor but don't want all of the people (you can't see the neighbors' houses and we didn't see anyone else, other than the occasional car). It's only about a 15-20 minute easy drive from the house to the entrance of Acadia National Park, which we frequented every day. The house sits about 50 yards from the water which looks like a large lake but, in reality, is a Cove, meaning it is subject to high and low tides. We rented paddleboards for the week and the kids could paddleboard in the morning (we were introduced to high and low tides on this trip--low tide is about 4-5:00 a.m. and p.m. Consequently if you are wanting to be in the water, you have to wait until about 10:00 a.m. At high tide, I would estimate the water is 10-15 feet deep but calm--perfect for paddleboards) and then we went hiking in the afternoon in Acadia. Some evenings we would eat dinner in Bar Harbor or eat at one of the many lobster pounds on our way home. The house is about a 10 minute drive from a super Wal-Mart so you can easily stock up on the essentials. The grounds of the house were also extremely clean. We used the firepit every evening. The owners had plenty of cut wood for our use and they even had the pit filled and primed for the first night--all we had to do is throw a match on it! The place is great! The pictures don't do it justice. The glass wall faces due east and on my very first morning I sat on the deck and watched the sun rise. By far the best thing about this house are the owners. We have been staying at VRBOs for about 10 years. These owners were the best we've ever dealt with! We would love to come back and stay at this property.

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS FOR THE MOST RELAXING AND FUN FILLED VACATION. Separated from the hustle and bustle of downtown Bar Harbor, but close enough to enjoy daily. You really get the best Acadia has to offer in this wooded waterfront cottage.

About 12 minutes to Mount Desert Island and all the wonderful things the island has to offer, you are also close to the towns of ELLSWORTH, BUCKSPORT, and BLUE HILL. Enjoy Acadia National Park and Lamoine State Park or take a day trip to CAMDEN or BELFAST.

FOR THE KIDS: ACADIA FUN PARK which offers water slides, go carts, mini golf, and a ropes course, and also the zoo. The Oceanarium on MDI has a great touch tack for the kids to explore ocean creatures up close and personally as well everything you wanted to know about lobsters.
