About June Creamer

I grew up in Maine residing for the first few years of my youth at a lobster pound that my father and uncle operated in Sorrento. My siblings and I spent many hours on the surrounding rocky beach areas exploring tide pools at low tide and developing a love and appreciation for the ocean. The family moved to Mt Desert island in the late 1960's and my father established a business in downtown Bar Harbor. I grew up on the island and spent many of my adult years working at that family business before it was sold in 2000. Though I no longer live in Maine, I am drawn back to the ocean and the unique beauty of Acadia National Park several times a year. I really enjoy having the opportunity to host other visitor's trips to this beautiful region by providing both quality lodgings and information based on my personal knowledge of the area.

June Creamer purchased this cottage in 2015

Why June Creamer chose Downeast and Acadia

Upon first seeing this property, I was taken with its bright and cheery personality--wonderful qualities for a vacation home. Its location and quality are comparable to my other property and will be an option for those who are looking for facilities that are nearby for larger parties or several families traveling together who want separate accommodations.Or, for those who periodically ask if we have any other properties comparable to when it isn't available.

Being from this area and having worked in downtown Bar Harbor for many years, I appreciate the appeal of having a restful atmosphere to return to after a day of hectic activity in order to rejuvenate for the next day's excursions. This is the type of home and location that I personally would choose for a visit to this region.

What makes this cottage unique

In addition to being close to Mt Desert Island, Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, and the other island communities, this property is also equidistant to Ellsworth where the superior grocery shopping is to be found. For those interested in seafood, there are a number of lobster pounds to be found on Rt. 3 just 5 minutes from the cottage. Though the ocean is not visible through the woods from the property, it is actually only about 1,000 feet from the shoreline. Just a few feet down the street is an open field with a view of Western Bay and the "mountains" of Acadia National Park, indicating the cottage's proximity to the ocean.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a WONDERFUL stay at Oak Point Cottage. Our trip to Maine was so fun; adventurous and relaxing at the same time. The cottage is spacious, very well maintained and well stocked. It has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing get away. The gazebo is a perfect place to relax after a day of hiking or kayaking. June is very sweet and available for questions. She leaves a beautiful and generous welcome basket full of delicious treats. We booked our trip based on our neighbors telling us how wonderful their trip was 2 years earlier when they stayed at June's sister property. You won't be disappointed if you decide to stay at either property.

Great House, Great Location, Great Host

  • 5 of 5

Our family truly enjoyed staying here. The communication leading up to and during our stay was on point. Immediate response with the host looking out for our every need. We were extremely comfortable and loved the welcome gift. Thank you for making it such a great memory for our family. The elaborate TV setup and sound system was sweet but a little confusing so instructions to better understand it would be helpful please.

Thank you!

Great house and great location

  • 5 of 5

The size and amenities of this home are fantastic. Bedrooms are large and comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed and has all the tools and utensils you might need to prepare great meals. The house is located far enough away to be quiet but close enough to Acadia to be convenient. There is shopping within a few miles and plenty of restaurants. The property is beautiful with many tall trees. My only wish is that we could have seen the water.

All the Hotel amenities with the comfort of home!

  • 4 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by this home. Pictures do not do it justice. Starting from the best Welcome Basket filled with some of Maine's staples.

Anything you needed this house had. From a Ninja, waffle maker, PS4 game system(which we never used but could have) down to the little necessities(toilet paper, soap and toiletries)this house had everything.

It was close enough to the mountains and Bar Harbor but far enough away to enjoy the stars with no light pollution!

The gazebo was our favorite place to hang out(mosquitoes were abundant and hungry)at night.

We have stayed in many homes from HomeAway.com and have never had everything supplied by the owner. She thought of everything. If I would have known, I would have packed a lot less!

We truly loved this place and would definitely go back!

This lovely accommodation is close to everything, yet in a quiet location especially suited to those who would like to return to peace and quiet after a full day of activities. There is a wide selection of activities to be enjoyed in the Acadia region--something for everyone. In addition to the spectacular beauty of the National Park, the quaint and historic communities of the island, and approximately 120 miles of hiking trails and carriage roads, there are wonderful destinations nearby that are great for day trips (i.e. Schoodic Peninsula, Stonington, Camden/Rockland, Campobello Island, and so forth). Within close proximity of the cottage are grocery shopping, gas stations, lobster pounds, and the Chamber's Visitors Center.
