Overview

Trenton House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms/4 baths in 2 houses plus pullout beds everywhere AND a bunk house!!!

Briar Rose by the Sea is for LARGE GROUPS! Adjacent guest house is just a walk across the lawn and there is a bunk house for those more adventurous ALL on the Sea's edge and adjacent to each other. What a wonderful beach for your family! It is minutes from Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Huge yard for your family activities and the water facing deck can hold and seat everyone in your party. If you have a large group vacation planned, this is the place. The beach area is clear of large rocks and is a beautiful pebble/sand beach-- a hard find on the rocky coast of Maine! Couple this with the mountain views and the Atlantic ocean and you will want to return here every year.

The ONLY property you will find to accommodate large groups with 2 separate residences and a bunk house!!! All on one large property with over 300 ft of beach frontage and a huge lawn for family activities AND a huge Cedar Works Pirate themed playground!!!

I Must Go Back to the Sea Again...: You will want to return year after year to this very special spot. There are a lot of rentals to choose from, but none like this. Accommodating large groups with beautiful grounds and beach so close to Acadia and overlooking the mountains of Acadia combined with the deep water frontage make this a one of a kind vacation spot and THE PLACE for Family reunions and large groups!

Make Sure you have Deep Water frontage--Not Tidal!: This is deep water frontage. Don't be fooled by houses 'located on the ocean' that have tidal frontage. Tidal frontage means you have nothing but mud (and a foul smell!) when the tide goes out and the water disappears. True deep water frontage means you will still have deep water even when the tide is out. Many properties listed in Trenton Maine have tidal frontage--don't be fooled by a good price!

Several Golf Courses are nearby: Bar Harbor Golf course is just minutes away and down the road to Bar Harbor you will find the famed 'Kebo Valley' golf course.

There's a Summer Place...: This is truly an exceptional property with a breathtaking view of the ocean with the backdrop of the mountains of Acadia National Park. A deep water mooring is provided should you wish to sail or boat during your stay here. Spend your days combing the beach for starfish, sand dollars and pretty colored shells and sea glass. The beach is cleared of large rocks (something no one is allowed to do anymore) which is a hard find on the rocky coast of Maine. Couple this with the smell of the sea and a warm summer breeze and you will want to return year after year to rest your soul. This spot is great for ocean swimming or wading as well as for snorkeling or scuba diving.

But be prepared to just sit back in your beach chair with your toes dug into the warm sand while the warm summer breeze caresses your cares away. Don't be surprised if you catch yourself smiling all the time...we'll know why...

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

We held a friend reunion here with 8 adults and 8 children. Between the guest house and the main house, there was plenty of room. I would not factor in the bunkhouse for occupancy as it was not a place we would have used, but there are PLENTY of pull out couches throughout the houses.

The yard/beach access with children, hands down was perfect and needed. We were able to swim, kayak, and the land itself suitable for obstacle courses, soccer games, and a plethora of outdoor activities. It was about 25 minutes to bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor; a little longer to some of the hikes and bass harbor, bot doable. I HIGHLY recommend this place for large groups. The bonus, no trying to park at Sand Beach in Acadia because they have their own swimable beach. Worth every penny.

Additionally, the owners were friendly, amenable, and responded quickly to emails.

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a friend’s get-together. Debbi (owner - Deborah Albert) was very helpful and even recommends places to visit and tips. Her husband visits us but didn’t come in saying he want to give our privacy. Spacious, We had 8 families with kids (1-4). Beautiful private beach, we had camp fire, BBQ whole night. It’s perfect for me and my friends. Boat and Canoe is there with life jackets and paddles. Ladies enjoyed it by paddling around. Low tide make you bigger beach to walk. Aacadia national park is minutes away and all Bar Harbor attractions are close by. Plenty of parking space and well maintained back yard lawn. Clean rooms/bathrooms.

Note: I visited here back in 2011 September, but system don’t allow me to select the date. Would like to visit again

Amazing place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful location! We stayed for a week and it was well worth the money! The house is amazing and the guest house is quite the suite too! A large beach front and beautiful view of the magnificent coast line of Maine really made this stay worth while. The location is great too, because you are just outside Bar Harbor without being in the constant hustle of the tourism, yet its just a short drive in if you want to see the attractions. Maine lobster feeds and muscle steaming is second to none. I highly encourage staying here, and I certainly will be returning. Thank you so much to the owners for sharing their dream house!

THE ONLY LISTING you will find with a 3 bedroom/3 bath MAIN house PLUS and an adjacent but private 2 bedroom/1bath guest house, AND a BUNK HOUSE -- all filled with pullout furniture beds, to accommodate LARGE GROUPS all included in one price.

HUGE beautiful rolling lawn down to over 300 ft private pebble, sand beach overlooking Acadia National Park Mountains. Pirate cedar playground for kids young and old and THE BEST cleared pebble, sand beach you will find on the rocky coast of Maine! This unique property has it all and no others in the area compare to this.

This property is right on the ocean with deep water frontage, overlooking Acadia National Park Mountains, and you an even see the car headlights descending from Cadillac Mountain at night! Minutes to Acadia National Park Entrance. This is the one your family has been searching for and just listed May 2011 for the first time in several years! Welcome to Briar Rose by the Sea....it's calling to you...

Other Activities: Acadia National Park entrance very close!

Golf: Famous Kebo Valley Golf Course is a must for the golfer in your group! Located in Bar Harbor, this course is surrounded by the beauty of Acadia. But, be careful that you aren't distracted by the views when making that important putt!
