Overview

Acadia National Park Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

'Beau Se Jour' cottage was designed to be reminiscent of the shingle cottages which have always been unique to Maine's seacoast.

Sunfilled rooms are tastefully decorated with vintage wicker, hooked rugs, and nautical accessories. Birch bark railings, a gas stone fireplace, and a moose-horn chandelier give this cottage a distinctive look and feel of an earlier time.

Enjoy relaxing on the large eat-in screened porch with panoramic ocean and mountain views.

This beautiful setting is perched on Frenchman Bay, and has breathtaking views of Cadillac Mountain and Acadia National Park.

A rare opportunity to enjoy a private beach (no public access) for swimming, clam digging, and long walks along the endless shore.

For additional information, please contact us @ 518-573-7838 or click contact owner link on site.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

Still talking about how awesome this place is!

  • 5 of 5
We travel frequently, and typically rent a house/cottage. We were stunned at how well appointed and clean this cottage was! The decor was fantastic, and everything was very comfortable. The setting is spectacular, and the location was an easy drive to adventure is all directions. It was so nice we were tempted to just hang out there all day!
We have rented houses/cottages since, and have been disappointed after being so spoiled at this little slice of heaven!
We cannot wait to return :-)

Love this place all over again!

  • 5 of 5
Second year at this beautiful property. Mother/Daughter vacation shared with friends we haven't seen in many, many years. We enjoyed all the fun things to do in Bar Harbor/Acadia but love spending our evenings at the cottage, grilling, playing games and enjoying the views of Cadillac Mountain. We had kayaks delivered to the house and paddled the quiet cove, the kids enjoyed playing on the beach and collecting treasures washed ashore. Many, many wonderful memories made. Thank you Laura and Bob for sharing this beautiful home!

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Everything about Camp Beau Se Jour is wonderful. It turned out to be the perfect base camp for my Mom’s and my recent trip to the coast of Maine. The owner is extremely responsive and helpful, and their housekeeper and groundskeeper do a great job keeping everything pristine, while fully respecting your privacy. Everything we needed was at our fingertips and the amenities provided were more than ample. The location could not be any more lovely and the cottage interior is picture perfect. The bay views are exceptional, it is so private you almost feel as if you have the entire area to yourself, and the cottage is a true home away from home. This is an authentic Maine cottage, with a few quirks, but we found them to be charming and entertaining rather than annoying. Honestly, the owners of this property have opened their home in such a way, they have made it possible for it to feel as if it is truly yours while you are there. Everything you need to know about the cottage, its operation, and the local area is organized and ready for you when you arrive. Bar Harbor is a short and beautiful 20 minute drive away. We found the distance to be perfect, as it allowed a true retreat away from the crowds but easy access when we wanted to site-see. There is SO much to do in the area! We absolutely loved our stay, and really hope to come really back soon.

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing time we had at the cottage. The view of the ocean when you arrive at the cottage for the first time is absolutely jaw dropping. While I type this recommendation I can only shake my head and wish we were back. A few words to describe our time at your place:
•Content

•Relaxed

•Satisfied

•Happy

•Refreshed

•Recharged

Honestly, it was/is so much more that any picture can show on an website or brochure from the majestic views to the perfectly appointed interior, it felt right! The week felt like a couple of hours went by and it was time to go home, sad, but we are glad that we decided to visit your piece heaven away from home. We haven't slept that soundly in quite a while. The sunrises were truly awesome and the spectrum of stars at night were something special to behold as they were so bright that they reflected off the ocean! It was nice that the weather, with the exception of one day, was exceptional too. We raked clams, ate too much lobster(not), boiled clams and lobster at the cottage, visited all points of the island and even broke into Acadia National Park in spite of the silly Government shutdown(what a bunch of bums) to hike around Eagle Lake and Jordan Ponds. What a awesome country we have the privilege to live in!

Your cottage was really a well needed escape from reality and it was even nicer that it did NOT have WIFI because it kept us from the temptation of falling into our routine surfing the internet, that would have taken away from our Family Time! Thank you and Robert for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful property and hopefully we will be back in the future to decompress again. Take Care and see you soon!!!

Love Camp Beau Se Jour

Mother/daughter vacation at this beautiful cottage. The owner was wonderful to work with. This cottage is in a quiet location and was a perfect place to end our busy days. The house has everything you need and is more beautiful then the pictures! We can't wait to come back and spend more time at this perfect vacation spot!

Absolutely Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough about this place or it's owner. So very accommodating and there isn't a lovelier spot. The property was exactly as it was stated in the listing. Our family more than enjoyed ourselves here. Everything was close enough (Acadia, Bar Harbor, Schoodic Peninsula), but far enough away to be away from the crowds that this truly felt like our own slice of heaven. We hope to go back. This was truly a vacation.
