ROMANTIC OCEANFRONT! NEAR ACADIA NATIONAL PARK AND BAR HARBOR

Trenton House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom has Queen Bed, 1 Full-Size Futon, Sleeps 4, Fully Furnished/Equiped

There is no option available in the web design to adequately describe our rental. If I had the option, I would describe it as a partial house. It is actually an apartment in the ground-floor level of our home. It is the only unit we have because my husband, Larry, and I live on the second story of the house. Since I use a wheelchair, I rarely go to the shore and my husband works five days per week. Consequently, the vast majority of the time our “little piece of heaven,” (as one guest called it), the gazebo and 200 feet of private shore frontage is entirely yours.

Ideally located right on the shore, our rental is fully furnished and ready to be your seaside home away from home. Drive right up to the boardwalk, unpack your bags, and you will have everything you need to sit back, relax, and enjoy spectacular sunsets. Walk just 75 steps to explore the private beach, launch your kayak, watch for bald eagles, ospreys, loons, seals and dolphins.

Privacy: Experience life on the water in a natural, wooded environment. The lot is natural, secluded and private. You can just barely see our neighbors to the right through the trees, (a retired couple comes intermittently). There is a small log cabin to the left that is used off and on during the summer. It is usually so quiet you can hear the loons, sea gulls, palliated woodpeckers and owls right from your bed when the windows are open. If the breeze is up, you may also hear the lapping of the waves. You definitely hear the waves in the gazebo. If you read the comments on the web page, you will get our guests’ perspective of privacy.

If you are looking for romance, look no further. It is so romantic here that one couple became engaged at the water’s edge!

delightful quiet spot with a spectacular sunset

  • 5 of 5
For us this was perfect. So quiet! No engines sounds. So sweet smelling the fresh air! Such a respite for us from living and working near a large urban center. That would be enough. But step out the door to a beautiful garden with humming birds, walk the short path to the cove beach with loons paddling by and sit admiring the spectacular sunsets listening to the gentle lapping waves and that's my idea of delightful relaxing. And so much so close by in Acadia and the region makes the location perfect for day trips.

Sunset Retreat

  • 5 of 5
So many choices for places to stay in the Acadia vicinity.My family and I chose "Sunset Retreat" on a hunch that it would meet all of our vacation expectations...it certainly did and more.The four of us enjoyed playing,relaxing and discovering natures beauty and sea creatures amidst the shores of the private beach,strolling the beachpath through the naturally beautiful and landscaped property blooming with wildflowers and purple lupines and in the evening unwinding to our fully furnished and equipped,cozy private apartment.
If you are in the mood to explore Acadia,Bar Harbor or the lovely little towns and scenery of the surrounding area this is the perfect "base camp",It's nearby some of the best attractions Maine has to offer,yet in an area secluded and private enough that you can imagine that you are in your own little world.I know that we are already dreaming of our next Maine vacation and our return to our own little world of discovery,nature,exquisite sunsets,low and hightides,and the charming,friendly, property owners Dawn and Larry who made our stay at "Sunset Retreat" feel like home.

Amazing Get Away

  • 5 of 5
Staying here is like a little piece of paradise! It's so peaceful and quiet, with just a short walk to the ocean. The sunsets are amazing, and it's great to eat a meal on the porch outside while watching the sunset and listen to the night sounds of the ocean splashing on the shore, peepers and silence! At night, there is no major lighting in the area, so you can literally see millions of stars!

Our son, who was 11 years old at the time, had a wonderful time! Larry and Dawn talked with him frequently and provided him with many peanuts to feed the chipmunks! They clued him in on how to get the chipmunks attention, and get the little guy to eat out of his hand! We stayed here for a week, doing all kinds of things in Bar Harbor and Acadia, but getting to be friends with Dawn, Larry and the chipmunks was his favorite thing of all! His other favorite part was being able to walk down the path to the ocean, and build little damns, skip rocks and jump from rock to rock in the water at low tide!

We all love Bar Harbor, and this was a great place to stay to be close to town, but also get away from all the tourist craziness in town! We're from Maine, so you don't have to be "from away" to come to stay here! We would recommend staying here for anyone from a single person looking to get away, to newlyweds looking for a place to honeymoon, or for a family vacation!

If you choose to stay here, we hope you will have many fond memories as we do. Enjoy!"

All the Best Maine has to Offer!

  • 5 of 5
Sunset Retreat has all the best Maine has to offer! This beautiful setting is conveniently located just off of Mt Desert Island; it's the perfect spot to enjoy nature and amazing views after a day of exploring in Acadia. Dawn and Larry are gracious hosts who will answer your questions about great places to hike, eat, or explore. Sunset Retreat has privacy and an unmistakeable connection to Maine's natural beauty. I loved waking up to the sounds of the water and watching the sun set each night to the sound of loons. I have spent several vacations here and recommend it to grateful friends. Thanks, Dawn and Larry, for the laughs and authentic Maine poetry-readings! :) I'll be back!!

Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5
This ocean-front site is fantastic!
Each evening the sun sets behind the mountain that is visible across the inlet can't be beaten anywhere I have ever stayed.
The site is quite and out-of-the-way yet it provides quick and easy access to Ellsworth, Bar Harbor and all of Acadia National Park.

This rental is a small apartment that is perfect for a couple to enjoy a nice, relaxing week in the area of Acadia National Park.

I HIGHLY recommend it for anyone wishing to view the area.

It stands by its name

  • 5 of 5
A fantastic reasonably priced place to stay whether you are visiting the beautiful Acadia National Park/Bar Harbor area or you enjoy charming rural coastal solitude. Or if you like them both:-). Running, biking, private beach and swimming, barbequeing can all be had on and around the property. Be prepared: it is difficult to leave!

The owners, Dawn and Larry, keep this place spotless and comfortable. They genuinely want their guest to have a great time. You like something-just ask them. Most importantly, we have enjoyed their warm company on several occasions.
