THE PERFECT FAMILY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our second vacation on this property. I really don't want to write this review, for the same reason people don't like to share that special restaurant that will fill up every night when word gets out how fabulous it is. But I owe owners Kelli and Vic the courtesy.

First off if you are looking for a quiet secluded setting this is perfect. It sits literally on the shore of Branch Lake. A lake that is big in size, but quiet in boat traffic. The water at the jumping dock was the perfect temperature, and my kids ages 13 and 11 couldn't believe how clear the water was when they opened their eyes under water. While my girls spent the day jumping off the dock, my wife enjoyed the private beach on the opposite side of the yard. I spent the majority of my time going between them, or reading my book on the deck that overlooked the lake.

It's listed as cottage, but it's actually more like a house. The picture of the great room does not do it justice as we spent many nights playing games, reading, and watching TV. Sometimes together, other times apart, but always in the room together. If you are looking to strengthen your bond with the kids, or create those summer time memories, this is the place.

The bedrooms were comfortable, and the owners have recently installed remote control ceiling fans in each room. Plenty of bedding and towels are supplied, and they have a nice contemporary washer and dryer.

For large or multiple families, there is a finished basement with a bedroom and bathroom. From here you can walk through the sliders right out to the lake.

Candy and Carl the caretakers live a few doors down, and make you feel welcome by stopping by and offering any assistance you may need.

Despite it's quiet setting, it is just minutes from the Ellsworth business district, and sits almost halfway between Bangor and Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park. A short drive to these sites offer numerous family fun activities.

I've done a lot of research on vacation properties on various lakes. Hands down this was the best. We plan on returning to this property every summer, I just hope you don't steal our week!

NEXT BEST THING TO PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We arrived on Branch Lake during a Nor'easter in June. It rained most of the week, but what a fabulous place to be rained out (rained in?). Although there were only two of us, there was plenty of space for more without being on top of each other. The house is very clean and very well kept. The furniture is comfortable and is not the typical discarded furniture that we have found in other rentals. The appliances appear to be new (and functional) and there is even filtered water for drinking. The caretakers live nearby and were very helpful to us.

The sunroom was a real lifesaver for us since we were not able to spend much time outside. We did manage to spend some time sitting on the waterside deck, which was a very nice touch.

This lake is very quiet for those seeking a respite from high-stress living. There are roads for walking and taking in the beauty of the area (and the aroma of balsam). Of course, Acadia is a reasonably short drive away for those looking for more excitement.

In our opinion, this cottage fulfilled our needs perfectly.

A GREAT PLACE TO RELAX

  • 5 of 5
We came from California to visit our family in the Ellsworth area. Branch Point is the perfect place for everyone to gather and enjoy the view of the lake. The property managers are wonderful and the house is spacious and clean. It was easy to launch a canoe from the sandy beach and keep it tied up at the dock. We visited two years in a row and look forward to coming again. We highly recommend Branch Point to anyone who wants a taste of what Downeast Maine has to offer.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
I spent 2 weeks at Branch Point, one with my 11 year old granddaughter and her friend and the second with friends. We all found the cottage roomy, clean, well appointed and private. The spacious living room with huge windows overlooking the lake made even raining days bright and comfortable. The small sandy beach is handy for launching my kayaks and safe for small children and the dock with ladder is great for swimmers. It is difficult to choose a favorite area between the small deck over the water and the large deck attached to the cottage. Also the caretakers who live close by were very accomodating and helpful. I am already looking forward to next summer.
The cottage is also close enough for day trips to Arcadia National Park and shopping in Ellsworth. Also one of our favorites is Fort Knox in Bucksport.
