OCEANFRONT COTTAGE ON FRENCHMAN BAY-PRIVATE BEACH-ACADIA NATIONAL PARK

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:
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • non smoking only

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

  • 5 of 5
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.

BERRY COVE BLISS

  • 5 of 5
The description of Beau Se Jour sounded so perfect- could it possibly live up to it? YES, it could, and it did. The interior of the cottage was put together with such attention to detail. The views from every room were amazing, and the thoughtful touches included a basket filled with brochures and maps of the area activities, and a list of amenities and restaurants. We also loved the guest book, which provided more ideas. Berry Cove is secluded and picturesque. We were busy with the many activities Acadia had to offer, but knew we had this idyllic spot to come back to each day. The perfect vacation- hard to leave!

FABULOUS RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Loved, loved, loved this home! My husband and 2 adult sons came for a week of hiking, kayaking and relaxation. The setting for this home is fabulous. Many times when browsing for vacation rentals the pictures are far nicer than the actual accommodations. This is not the case here. The home is tastefully and painstakingly decorated in a manner that is both beautiful and conducive to relaxation. There was certainly a lot of attention to detail. The layout is open and inviting. I also appreciated the thoughtfulness in providing basic cooking necessities including spices, coffee, oil etc. We cooked several evenings on the outdoor grill( particularly enjoyed purchasing already steamed lobsters) and enjoyed the setting for a relaxed meal overlooking the bay.The trip into Acadia and Bar Harbor only took about 30-40 minutes and after spending a full day in the park (fabulous hiking, biking and kayaking) or in Bar Harbor (far too
crowded and touristy), it was delightful to come back to this retreat.
Although we only watched 1 movie while there, the movie selection was top notch. We also enjoyed the games (trivial pursuit, cranium, scrabble) as a great relaxing thing to do in the evening while enjoying a bottle of locally brewed beer or wine.
We also appreciated the information that was left in a folder for us to browse. Local recommendations are always useful.
My husband and I had not been to Maine in 26 years. At that time we stayed in a bed and breakfast. That was certainly enjoyable, but I have not stayed in any vacation home that rivaled what we found in in this little town outside Bar Harbor. I would highly recommend.
