My husband and I decided to come to Maine for our honeymoon. We were interested in the Acadia/ Bar Harbor area- but wanted to stay away from the crowds. This location and house is perfect! We were not fully prepared- we are used to a TV, and seeing people frequently. It took a bit of adjusting...but once we adjusted it was perfect!
The actual house is clean and very comfortable. It is fully stocked- but they ask to replace something if you use the last of it. This really makes you feel right at home. The view is breathtaking and relaxing!
We took a trip to Bar Harbor- which was great. There were a lot of people everywhere. Cadillac Mountain is a MUST! We were in the clouds- and saw some great views!
From the house- we kayaked around Sally Island and spent hours staring at an eagles nest (with babies in it) - and waiting for the mommy or daddy eagle to come back to it. It was completely amazing. We saw a few eagles- from the house too! It was nice to be able to just kayak from the house. The tides were something we weren't used to (being from Kentucky)- but there was plenty of information on when low and high tide is.
On the 2nd or 3rd day- we went to Milbridge. We enjoyed the restaurant 44 North. People were friendly, food was good, and beer was cold! They also have a nice grocery store there- and a post office and town office where you can buy a fishing license.
One day we went to Christophers- a restaurant about 20 minutes away. We were the only ones there because it was the first Tuesday that they were open. The waitress was great- and gave us lots of tips. The food was great as well!
We also took a trip from Milbridge to see puffins and seals. It was called "Downeast Tours." Our captain was friendly and great. We saw 2 lighthouses, puffins, seals, and eagle, and he pulled up a lobster trap for us!
We had a great time here! We spent a lot of time at the house relaxing, cooking, and listening to the local radio. I can't say a bad thing about this place! I would definitely recommend it!
