Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay at your home! Everything was just as it was pictured and we couldn't have asked for a better week. We loved being away from the town to get peace and quiet, but close enough where we could drive in as much as we pleased. Thank you again!

The way life should be

  • 5 of 5

We happened to be greeted by Gayle when we arrived. She was so pleasant and made us feel right at home. The house was very inviting and cozy, and bigger than expected. The backyard with the fire pit, chairs and hammock were perfect.

I suggest going to Lamoine State Park where you can fish for mackerel, and you will find local lobstermen who will sell you lobsters right off the boat if you ask.

Acadia National Park is breathtaking and only 30 minutes from the house.

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!

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.
