COTTAGE WITH PRIVATE BEACH AND VIEWS OF LAKE, MOUNTAINS AND SUNSET!

Spring River Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4-6

Near Acadia National Park, this private 300 acre lakefront cottage property is a unique vacation. All rooms have magnificent views of the beach, lake and mountains. Perfect for families who enjoy beach activities or for a quiet remote 'get-a-way.' Located adjacent to 38,000-acre land preservation on a minimally developed lake.

In 1994 we gifted 7500 acres of the property to the State of Maine for a State land reserve. We kept out the 300 acre peninsula surrounded by the land reserve, where the three cabins are located. The surrounding area is an undiscovered wilderness. The hiking is incredible with tremendous views of Down east Maine and Acadia National Park. There are many remote lakes and ponds snuggled in the hills that provide total privacy. In addition, Acadia National Park is only a short drive away and can easily be visited for a day or afternoon.

Spring River Lake and the other surrounding lakes, ponds, and mountains are minimally developed if developed at all. Our peninsula has several additional private beaches within a couple minutes walking distance. Directly in front of the rental cottage is a 1000-foot long soft sandy beach with beautiful swimming. The cottage has a mile long gated private driveway, allowing for considerable privacy.

The cottage is fully furnished and decorated in cottage style, yet comfortable. It is very clean and well maintained with electricity and plumbing. It is heated by large fireplace and kitchen wood stove.

About Andrew Pierce

The property and the surrounding area are very dear to me and my family. In 1994 we donated thousands of acres to the State of Maine for a Maine State Land Reserve which is now enjoyed and respected by enthusiastic visitors. We work hard to keep our remaining private peninsula pristine and in complete respect to the natural beauty of the area. Andrew grew up in the Bangor and Downeast area and has a strong connection to the Acadia region.

Why Andrew Pierce chose Spring River Lake

Two proximal reserves have been designated here: 1,940 acres east of Donnell Pond and 4,274 acres northeast of Spring River Lake. The mountains and lakes formed by the Tunk Mountain Pluton constitute one of the most distinctive landmarks of the East Coastal Region. The two reserves include mid-elevation (~1,000 foot) summits of Tunk Mountain, Black Mountain, and Caribou Mountain as well as Tilden Pond, Little Long Pond, and Wizard Pond.

What makes this cottage unique

The State’s best private beach, cleanest water and swimming, fantastic views and sunsets, well maintained cottage and the proximity to the Maine coast. A perfect romantic get-a-way or a memorable family Maine woods, lake and coastal experience!

Spring River Lake is Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time in Maine and we are so glad we chose the cabin at Spring River Lake. We were looking for a quiet place to enjoy the countryside and the surrounding areas. The location was perfect. The lake was so beautiful with the mountains around it. I have never seen such a clear lake and only wish we had been there in the summer so we could have enjoyed the water more. The owner and caretaker were so much help with advice on where to eat and where to fish. We enjoyed the Union Bay Lobster Pot in Ellsworth, Thanks for the tip! We were able to sit in the sun on the beach during the day and enjoy the fireplace in the cabin at night. What a peaceful setting !! if you are needing to get way from the fast paced daily life, I do hope you get the chance to come to this spot. The fishing was a little slow at this time of year but we hear it is usually better, so we have to come back again soon to catch fish. Thanks for sharing your home with us . we look forward to coming back soon.

Maine at its best!

  • 5 of 5
This vacation spot is a true find. The location is perfect. It is secluded enough so that you feel like you have truly gotten away, yet it still has proximity to conveniences such as restaurants and grocery store and tourist attractions, Acadia and Bar Harbor. Although it is close to Acadia and Bar Harbor, we tend to stay at the cabin since it is difficult to justify a reason to leave. The cabin and its surroundings are the perfect combination of tranquility and activity. The lake is perfect for relaxing and in the surrounding area there is so much to do – kayaking, canoeing, hiking, swimming etc. The lake is perfect for swimming – like bathwater. The area is truly breathtaking. The cottage is very clean, well-maintained and comfortable.

Perfect for a vacation with or without kids. We have been several times and look forward to many future visits.

A Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and four children (two sets of twins, ages 12 and 9) have vacationed at Spring River Lake for many summers, and it is our favorite place to spend time together as a family. It is the perfect setting and location if you are looking to unplug, unwind, and spend time together.

We have stayed at both the two-bedroom cottage and the cabin (rental # 102874). Both are beautiful, clean, and well maintained. The cottage is our favorite now because it provides all the space we need for our big family. It is a few steps away from the lake where we spent a great deal of time on the beautiful beach and playing in the clear and clean water. Our kids could spend hours catching tadpoles and frogs, as well as fishing and simply exploring the shoreline. There are kayaks and canoes and we often would paddle across the lake to some rocks that are close to shore that are perfect for great diving fun. Our dogs would come along for the ride and love every minute of it. It was always a treat when we would see a loon along the way. We also have enjoyed hikes up the surrounding mountains that provide spectacular views.

Rainy days, which seem few and far between, provide a wonderful opportunity to light a fire and play a game of cards or board games. There are certain games that my entire family associates with Spring River Lake!

Acadia National Park is a short drive away and provides endless opportunities for family exploring and fun, from time at the ocean to hikes up Cadillac Mountain. Ellsworth is close by and provides plenty of great places to eat, including delicious Maine lobster and ice cream.

Evenings are simply magical at Spring River Lake. We often would light a fire for s’mores and cozy up in front of it to enjoy more card games or our favorite books. The evening would end as you would be lying in bed listening to the loons calling on the lake.

The cottage at Spring River Lake is a slice of heaven. I would recommend a vacation here to everyone!

Unique Maine Getaway Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We have very much enjoyed our stays at the Spring River Lake Cabin. It is the perfect destination for anyone looking to escape the frenetic, fast-paced world in which we live in, and rediscover nature while spending quality time with family and friends. There's no TV here and internet just barely on your smartphone on the beach, but that's how we like it when we are on vacation in Maine.

The cottage is well furnished and cozy; plenty of room for a large family. Quaint and slightly rustic but everything you need is provided. We like the large kitchen table for playing games and cards, the porch for just "setting a spell" while you are grilling, the fireplace for some homey warmth if it is cool, or the breeze coming off the lake at night if you're warm. It truly is a home away from home minus the distractions.

The outdoors is why we come and we've yet to find a lake like this, probably never will. The property description is right on; it is very private, offers spectacular views, places to hike, etc. The beach is the real selling point though. I mean, how often do you get your own private beach? The lake water is warm, clean, and inviting. There's plenty of watercraft to get out on it, canoes, kayaks, even a rowboat await you. I've paddled for hours on the lake, there's lots to explore on the other side of the peninsula, it's a great workout, and fun to discover new places. And just like the cottage, the beach shed is packed with everything you need to enjoy the beach and water. Plenty of chairs for the adults to relax and toys for kids to play with.

There's no reason to leave the cottage while you're there, but we usually make a day trip to Acadia National Park which is an easy drive away. Plenty of other coastal attractions within striking distance as well and truly something for everyone. But after a day out we always look forward to getting back before sunset and taking a dip in the lake before dinner. What an incredible place to get back to!

Perfect setting for a peaceful vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time at this idyllic spot on Spring River Lake. Having now stayed at both the 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom cabins, we can vouch for both of them. They are clean, comfortable and well maintained and furnished. Our personal favorite is the 2 bedroom, with nice open areas for frisbee throwing for our dog. The location is great, not far from Ellsworth (pick up supplies and fresh lobster) and Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, so serves as a great home base for those wanting to enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities. Honestly, however, I most enjoyed just hanging out at the cabin, reading books, swimming in the clear water, playing frisbee with the dog and being serenaded by loons in the evening. The private beach and lake cove, which are shared with just the people staying in the two rental cabins and the Family cabin, are beyond compare with most other rental locations. This spot is a nature lover's dream, unspoiled, quiet, peaceful and soothing. Andrew and his caretakers clearly cherish the location and have been wonderful stewards of this special place. I thank Andrew for making it possible for others to share this lovely spot and the blanket of tranquility that envelops you while staying at Spring River Lake. It is a perfect place for anyone who respects and appreciates nature and its inherent beauty. We recommend it unconditionally for anyone that wants to get away and unwind, just be prepared to sever your connections with work and relax. We certainly plan on coming back!

The Best of All Maine Peaceful Worlds!

  • 5 of 5
Our needs for a great vacation this summer included privacy, tranquility, beauty in nature, a warm lake, easy access to civilization, good restaurants and hiking. We found it all at Spring River Lake.

The listing description and photos are very accurate yet the character, integrity and magic of both the cottage, the property and the lake can only be experienced first hand. It is a dream vacation for a family with kids or an older couple like us.

The private beach is a wonder and we couldn't get enough of exploring the lake by canoe and kayak. Nature abounds with the Milky Way, frogs, loons, deer flies, bald eagles... The water is divine for swimming. Tunk Mtn is a great hike with great surprises.

Andrew, the owner was gracious in providing answers to our questions and our wonderful cottage was immaculate while still feeling like we were sharing a unique piece of family history. The caretaker was also friendly and helpful in making our stay comfortable. The kitchen was well supplied for good cooking.

We thought we would have made more trips to Mt Desert Island (only one) which is only about an hour or so away. We were happy to stay more peaceful and explore the local area of Winter Harbor and Schoodic Peninsula only 20 minutes or so away. A couple of good restaurants, the Park as lovely as Acadia and a small, typically Maine, artsy community.

So obviously we highly recommend Spring River Lake!
