We recently returned from a week long vacation at Foxfield and had a fun, relaxing time fully avoiding the summer crowds closer to Bar Harbor.
The cabin is located at the end of a dirt road. The directions provided by the rental company were not quite accurate--some of the road names were different--but we did eventually find the house. Arriving in the daylight definitely helped. Bring tons of mosquito repellant---they were vicious!! The cabin feels very secluded and we never heard any people, although there are houses in fairly close proximity on either side. It was wonderful to be able to bring our dog and he loved running in the yard and on the rocky beach, as well as swimming in the ocean (he didn't mind the 55 degree water!).
We rented a tandem kayak for the week--the kayak was delivered to the house and was very reasonable. The kayaking from the property was some of the best we found in the area. We ate lobster at Thurstons and even cooked our own at the house. We also had breakfast one morning at Grumpy's which was delicious. We hiked Acadia Mtn which was close by and provided stunning views of Sommes Sound.
The house itself is comfortable. Our only complaints were that the bathroom shower is extremely small and the shower curtain and shower were pretty dirty. The picture window also needed a good cleaning. The living room would be much more comfortable with a full sized couch instead of the cluster of chairs. Although there are small built-in couches on either side of the room, they are awkward for adults to enjoy together. The bed was very comfortable and the linens very high quality. The cabin was otherwise clean and the kitchen well appointed. We loved hanging out on the back deck watching the lobster boats and the amazing sunsets.
The trail to the beach is steep and beach is very rocky. At low tide the rocks are quite slippery so people with children or elderly people may not feel they can access the water easily. Otherwise, if you are looking for an off-the-beaten-path adventure, away from the tourists, you will really love this place! We hope to return!
