Overview

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!

About Carol G Carson

Why Carol G Carson chose West Tremont

Mount Desert Island is a truly magical place!

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time...walked in the woods in shirt sleeves, walked in the snow...truly a Maine spring! Thank you for your welcoming home. We saw our son at U of Maine, relaxed,

did some work (in lovely surroundings) and got hooked on Maine just a little more.

One day we too may be permanent residents. Our poodle certainly is happy here!

Always wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We love this cabin, and October on the island. We stayed at L'Acadie Cottage in 2009, and this time we were back with our daughter and her family to introduce our 3YO granddaughter to Maine tide pools, lobsters, rocks, hikes, and all the wonderful things about Maine. The cottage, which had been wonderful when just the two of us stayed there, was even more wonderful with all of us staying. The kitchen was perfect for family dinners in the evening, and we really enjoyed the fireplace in the evening. I couldn't recommend this wonderful cottage more -- it's perfect!

Feels like coming home

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week here in June, with our 5 year old golden retriever and 24 year old son. The location is private but not isolated, the house is immaculately clean and the grounds are beautifully maintained. No detail was overlooked in supplies or toiletries and we felt welcomed. Enjoyed everything about it - the bedrooms, the views, the kitchen, the living room. Thank you for your caring.

Wonderful vacation home with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5
The views from this West Tremont vacation home are spectacular. What a wonderful place to return to after a fun day of hiking and biking through Acadia National Park. Watching a beautiful sunset from the deck off of the master bedroom is a perfect way to end the day. The owners have thoughtfully appointed the house. The fireplace and well curated reads on the guest bookshelf make this a comfortable vacation home at anytime of year. Looking forward to my next visit!

Wonderful Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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!

  • 5 of 5
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..
