CHARMING MAINE HOME WITH PANORAMIC VIEWS OF WATER AND SKY!

West Tremont House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

You will simply love our place. It is a three bedroom (pillow-top king,queen and double bed) two bath home (plus den/TV room). Located on the 'Quiet Side' of Mount Desert Island with panoramic views of Blue Hill Bay and surrounding Islands.

PERFECT for couples (very comfy KING bed, amazing water views, lovely private deck) and/or for families with 2 more bedrooms.... a wonderful retreat.

Very private, woodsy setting yet accessible to all the delights and wonders of ACADIA NATIONAL PARK. Fully equipped gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops. Oak hardwood floors in all bedrooms. Fireplace with hand-painted Portuguese tiles. Nice basement space with Foosball table and washer/dryer.

Spacious decks (bring your yoga mat for sunrise/sunset practice) and screened porch. Bring your bikes, canoe, kayak: plenty of storage space available. Also wireless internet access of course.(broadband). Bring your laptop, iPad....or not....you could just disconnect and really relax.....!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

DO YOU HAVE WATER ACCESS? No, we do not have waterfront property. Yet the ocean breezes and sounds of the gulls following the lobster boats in the cove can fool you. It is fair to say we have the most spectacular views of the water...better than our lower level neighbors.

IS IT QUIET? Yes, it is very quiet. Our land abuts an old Maine cemetery. Sometimes there are visitors or they mow the grass and you can hear these brief sounds in the distance.

CAN PETS OR CHILDREN PLAY OUTSIDE? We own 10 acres and are situated at the end of a long private driveway. It is quite safe for pets and kids to be outside.

HOW FAR ARE YOU FROM BAR HARBOR? We suggest that folks look at a Google map. But if you can't ...it is about a 25-35 minute drive.

This home offers you everything. Wonderful peace and quiet to meditate, read all those good books, make a fresh seafood meal and completely feel at ease. AND a great base for all the amazing outdoor activities available on Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park.

You DO deserve a vacation.

WE WELCOME YOU!

We spent our honeymoon on MDI in 1978. Along with many treasured memories and places, we still discover brand new things to do and see and experience with each returning visit. What more is there to say? We really love it here and so will you.

Mount Desert Island is a truly magical place!

From Acadia National Park website: www.nps.gov/acad/‎

The First Eastern National Park

People have been drawn to the rugged coast of Maine throughout history. Awed by its beauty and diversity, early 20th-century visionaries donated the land that became Acadia National Park. The park is home to many plants and animals, and the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic coast. Today visitors come to Acadia to hike granite peaks, bike historic carriage roads, or relax and enjoy the scenery.

Wonderful Winter Retreat

  • Submitted: Jan 24, 2014

Our stay at this beautiful home on the "quiet side" of Mount Desert Island exceeded our expectations---in the words of Mainers, it's a "keepah". The views of Goose Cove and Blue Hill Bay on both the first and second floors are everything the pictures promise and more. The views from the master bedroom suite are panoramic and bird's eye, looking out at tree-top level. The house itself was clean and quite comfortable (furniture and beds) and quiet as it's located on ten acres of property. It's a short walk (less than five minutes) to the water where we saw lobster boats still moored in the dead of winter engulfed in sea smoke. The owners were very responsive and made sure the driveway was both shoveled and sanded as we dealt with snow and ice. Our only disappointment was not being able to figure out how to use the blu-ray DVD player; but then, we sometimes have difficulty with this in our own home!

Beautiful home

We recently spent Christmas week at L'Acadie Cottage with our two dogs. The home couldn't have been better for our holiday visit to Mount Desert Island. It was our 7th visit to the island but first in the winter and first time staying at this home. The island itself is very quiet at that time of the year and this home served as a peaceful winter retreat. We and the pups certainly appreciated the cozy fireplace after a cold day of hiking. We enjoyed the very well equipped kitchen (there was even a pop over pan to make up for the fact that the Jordan Pond House was closed). The house is filled with light and the wonderful view from the bedroom deck inspired us to get up and about no matter how cold it was outside! The've thoughtfully provided a nice collection of books which include historical texts on the region as well as some videos and games. Those touches and the comfortable furnishings make the place feel like a home away from home and not at all like the typical vacation rental. We're not sure if Carol and Bruce ordered up the nice snow cover to add to the winter feel, but we're positive that their comfortable home will please anyone looking for a quiet place from which to enjoy Acadia.

Better than we had hoped!

We just finished our weeklong vacation in your home and could not have been more pleased! The pictures do not do it justice, and the feel of this home is warm and inviting. The master bedroom alone, was heaven! The house and property was well maintained and the owners were helpful in providing everything we needed. I would highly recommend this property and we hope to return..

Wonderful retreat on the quiet side of the island!

This house on the quiet side is the perfect escape from the crowds in Bar Harbor, but still an easy drive to everything on the island. Waking up to that view from the master bedroom or enjoying your morning coffee from the 2nd story master bedroom deck was the best way to start each vacation day!

The house was very clean, plenty big and had everything we needed! It's quiet and surrounded by trees, so you don't see or hear any neighbors. The best part was that we could bring our dog along, and she loved the chance to hike and bike with us!

We loved our stay and would definitely stay here again on our return trips to Acadia!

You will not regret staying at this wonderful property

Breath-taking view, yes. Secluded, yet close to conveniences, yes. Surrounded by beauty, yes. Modern comforts, yes. Gracious owner, yes. My wife and I stayed here for a week in October to view the leaves changing color. Our first trip to Maine was made memorable by this home and its proximity to so many wonderful sights within 30 minute's drive. After visiting the tourist trap of Bar Harbor, we are so glad that we chose to stay on the "Quiet Side" of the island.
