Why Dennis and Juliann Taylor chose Downeast and Acadia

Clifton and Chemo pond is a wonderful place to be. Bar Harbor/Acadia/Cadillac Mountain is 45 miles away and is absolutely beautiful, wonderful for hikers too.

Bangor is home of Hollywood Slots Casino, also Bangor Mall and many other stores.

A large selection of restaurants to choose from.

The River Concerts are very popular with very talented artists.

What makes this cottage unique

I love a lot of things about this place but the sunsets are the best....absolutely beautiful and a wonderful way to end your day.

Quality Family Time

  • 5 of 5

This lakeside cottage is the perfect rental for anyone looking for a peaceful setting. Our family spent one week there and had a great time. The cottage was cozy, the water was warm and the sunsets were beautiful. We had a pair of loons we saw every day just past the dock. We would recommend this rental for sure.

Great location. Fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great. Plenty of space for everyone with spectacular views of the lake, especially at sunset. The kids enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boat. The location was perfect. We were able to hike Katahdin, visit Bar Harbor, and take in a lumberjack show. Would definitely recommend.

The best Maine stay you'll get!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I used to live in this area, so when we returned for a long weekend we wanted to make sure we felt right at home. The sunset cottage is PERFECT for that! Roomy and comfortable for us and 4 friends we brought along with us. In the summertime we'll be back and we'll bring even more friends since the gorgeous 3-season sleeping room will be perfect for that time of year! The owners are incredibly nice and sweet and completely made our weekend :) The lake has a GORGEOUS view and the cottage is the perfect distance from the city of Bangor. Not too close - so you really get the authentic Maine experience, but close enough to go enjoy dinner and drinks and not feel as though it's a chore to get out there. We will definitely be back! Thank you SO MUCH!!

Beautiful View

  • 3 of 5

Little rustic cottage with a spectacular view of the frozen pond. Lots of snow and great for our daughter to play in the yard. Definitely have to have 4WD vehicle for trip. Owners were quick to help when there was a problem.

Beautiful Autumn Weekend at Sunset Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We rented this cottage because a dear friend just recently lost her fight against CRPS, and wanted us to remember her via a memorial at Cadillac Mountain. Everything in Bar Harbor was all booked up, and this was both nearby and reasonably priced.

I had no idea how big Chemo Pond was, or even why it is named that, but it is a beautiful lake. The cottage is situated in such a way that you only see a few of the houses next to you, but the rest of the lake looks like it is yours alone. Although the water was too cold to go into, it was very clear. The cottage is right on the pond -- so the views from the living room and the bedrooms was just delightful. On one side, there are steps down to the water and a nice firepit -- which we enjoyed very much as we roasted marshmallows and enjoyed the Hunters Moon.

The cottage is on a lane that doesn't receive a lot of traffic, so we let the dogs off leash to romp around and they did. It was nice to be able to let them do that, but we do have well trained dogs that will return upon command. Even so, they couldn't help themselves and did wade into the pond, but the cold water discouraged their efforts!

The cottage itself was an ideal size for 3 people, and our two dogs. The floors are wooden which is great when you bring dogs, as we did. We put down inexpensive bath rugs for our older dog as he can have trouble getting traction on wooden floors. The cottage is basic, but functional, and decorated to reflect the surroundings. The kitchen is small but adequate, although we did not prepare meals because of our limited time.

Some places we have rented, we almost feel like we cannot put up our feet, but this cottage just felt very cheery and homey. I like that!

The beds were very comfortable, and we all slept very well. Although we didn't need to sleep a lot of people, there were enough beds in the 3 bedrooms to suit a larger family.

We were very pleased to learn from the owner that there was a Dunkin Donuts nearby which made it possible to get coffee rather easily! Also, the owners recommended Eagles Nest as a downhome kind of place that is good to eat -- a fact that was buttressed by recommendations for that same place on Roadfood.com. It was clean, the people friendly, and we had a darn good lobster roll.

I would definitely be willing to rent this cottage again, and that says a lot.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review and we are very pleased you had a nice time !!! The pond name is pronounced "ch" emo..... it's an Native American name. It sounds like it would be pronounced "k"emo as in the cancer treatment but Is not :) Come back anytime !!! Sincerely Juliann and Dennis
