We purchased the property in 2001 and started building the log house in 2003, after designing it and finding a builder. The house is a vacation - retirement house, with my main residence currently being Philadelphia. I'm a retired Social Worker/ Family Therapist, having been the founder and Executive Director of an international adoption agency for almost 30 years.

I've been vacationing in Maine for years, having a sister who lives outside of Belfast, where I vacationed with my children until they were grown. After spending some summers renting, I always wanted to have a log home in the woods and started looking. When we first saw the land at Raccoon Cove, we were overwhelmed with the beauty and privacy of the 'Cove', yet close to Lamoine Beach, Ellsworth, and Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Through the years, the peace and serenity of the area, the beauty of the house, remain totally engaging and renewing.
We love looking out the window walls at the changing panorama of the tidal beach. At sunrise, we get a tremendous colorful view, with the sun reflecting on the water. At sunset, the reflection from the west creates a mystical, muted scene. Even after 10 years, the house soothes with its beauty. It's fun to cook in the large kitchen and eat outdoors on the deck, or grill and eat on the deck looking out at the water. The secluded wooded setting with the opportunity to walk or sunbathe on the wild secluded beach is rare. When the water is partially out, long flat rocks are exposed, perfect for sunbathing. The shallow water, warmed by the mud flats, is great for splashing and wading. When water is further out, mud flats are great for clamming and musseling. when the water is fully in, can kayak in this private, protected cove.
Cove's End is a gorgeous log home, very spacious with all the amenities you will need! It is right on the cove, so waking up to the beautiful view was amazing. We enjoyed coffee on the large, wraparound deck every morning.
It is about 25/30 minutes to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, so we did do a lot of driving back and forth, but wanted to be away from the crowds and truly enjoyed the peaceful, serene location. (FYI, the last week in June was perfect time to go, there were no crowds:) Acadia National Park is stunning. some of the most beautiful scenery we have ever seen. And the owner was great to deal with, extremely nice and helpful. Definitely recommend!
The bay in front is pretty. There's lots of room in the cabin and the hot tub up stairs helps out after hiking Cadillac mountain. Bar Harbor is about half an hour away and a neat ride. Five out of five in my book.
My husband and I had a great stay at Cove's End
The house is very nice, clean, has a kitchen with all cookware., washer and dryer , and a large deck to enjoy nature with a water view The location is secluded on a private road (which made for fun walks with our dog), yet close enough to Acadia Park, Schoodic Mtn., Bar Harbor, Lamoine Beach, etc. All in all, a relaxing week.
We will definitely be going back.
Spent a week with our family and didn't want to leave! The house is absolutely beautiful! It was so relaxing to sit on the couch with the windows open, see the water,and smell the fresh air. Great vacation! Thanks Hannah😊
