What makes this House unique
Our property is on a 0.3 mile dead-end, paved road, so it doesn't see a lot of traffic. Parking is off road in our spacious driveway. Our property is lined with greenery (mostly white spruce) so there's a good measure of privacy as well. Several renters have commented that it serves as a 'quiet oasis' after a hectic day of sight-seeing. Perhaps that helps explain the fact that we have MANY repeat guests. Some have returned for five, six, and seven years. One couple has been with us for ten years as of 2012!
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Couldn’t ask for more!
Absolutely fantastic! The property was gorgeous and Warren and Judy were great hosts. Very helpful with learning about things to do prior and during our stay. I loved receiving an email about checking for eagles and the sweet reminder to fill the hummingbird feeder. Just fantastic experience for our first trip to Maine. I can’t wait to go back.
Just what we were looking for!
We had an absolutely amazing time in Maine and Elvin's Chalet provided us with the perfect location to enjoy it from. Located on the "quiet" side of the island as the locals told us, it provided peace and quiet but was perfectly located for us to enjoy sea kayaking, hiking in the Acadia National Park, watching the sun set at Bass Harbor Light House and even venturing inland for a moose watching tour.
The view from the deck overlooking bass harbor was great and we loved watching the tide come and go every day.
The Chalet had everything we needed, was clean, and provided us with a home away form home!
We will definitely be back for another visit to Elvin's Chalet.
very homely and comfortable
The cottage is nestled amongst pine trees with a magnificent view of Bass Harbour. We had a wonderful week watching humming birds, the occasional Bald Eagle, Herons and Osprey. It is ideally situated for exploring the quiet side of the island. The owners were extremely helpful and responsive to our many questions as travellers to the USA from England. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cottage.
Wonderful little cottage
The Chalet was spotless and comfortable. We were away from it all but still had everything we needed, and all the attractions were nearby. The owners were great at communicating with us, and everything was as they said it would be. Loved sipping coffee on the deck in the morning and getting in rhythm with the quiet side of Mount Desert Island -- the water, the wildlife, the boats putting across the harbor. We can't wait to return. Actually, we wish we were still there. Thank you.
This quaint cottage has an awesome view of Bass Harbor Bay! I really enjoyed my morning coffee on the deck watching the tides, lobster boats, ferry, sailboats going to and fro. Also enjoyed watching all kinds of birds - seagulls, a hawk, an eagle too! Plus many lovely songbirds. The cottage is situated to catch the cool sea breezes nite and day. And altho we had neighbors, it was an amazingly quiet neighborhood. The cottage is buffered on both sides with huge beautiful trees and has a lovely yard down to the beach. The couch was comfy and I was surprised to find on cable TV my fave song station Soundscapes. I loved the cozy kitchen, the kitchen table next to the window to watch the action in the bay and dishwasher/washer/dryer worked great! Judy and Warren were very helpful and kind. Also enjoyed reading their history book about the house and their family. 😊� Was a nice break from Texas heat and someday I hope to come back again. Best wishes always! RobinA, Texas
Came for bird watching and wasn't disappointed
If you want quiet and peaceful place to relax and still be close to all of the fun of Cadillac Mountain, Acadia and Bar Harbor, I would definitely recommend this house!
God willing I will be back!
