PERFECTION.

  • 5 of 5
We booked this cottage for my birthday getaway this past Memorial Day Weekend. My one complaint is that we didn't have more time to stay in this splendid carriage house and explore this beautiful area. When we first arrived we were stunned by the gorgeous views and the impeccable condition of the house. Pictures do neither justice. The house is spotless and tastefully decorated. The walls are painted a light coastal blue and the decor is perfect for a seaside home. Everything is light, open, and airy. The spacious kitchen is equipped with everything you might need, and the double doors lead to a cute deck with chairs--perfect for drinking your morning coffee while taking in the view. And speaking of the view--it's fabulous.
This home is set just steps from the water. Lobster boats rest quietly on the island dotted bay. Sea birds gather on these islands, calling out to each other. The house faces east, and the sunrises are nothing short of incredible. I woke up early every morning to watch it. I would sit on the new pier and just take it all in. The rising sun cast brilliant shades of pink and orange over the glassy water. The sound of the awakening birds and the scent of the salty sea air was so peaceful. One morning I was lucky enough to see the resident harbor seal. The other activity I enjoyed was kayaking, and this rental actually includes two kayaks at no extra charge. We explored the bay and the islands, paddling by nesting birds and lobster boats. This rental also includes a large grill and a fire pit. The warm fire was perfect to sit by on brisk nights.

Even though it was hard to leave this little paradise, we did venture out. The Schoodic peninsula is just minutes away and is a very pretty drive. The fishing villages of Winter Harbor and Corea are worth a visit while in that area. Corea was by far my favorite. I took many photographs of this traditional fishing village. We also took a trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia National park.

We ate really well while here. Don't miss Friday nights at Chester Pikes. Delicious seafood and the chocolate chip pie is to die for. We also had lobsters from Trenton Bridge Lobster pound--delicious!

And now I would like to talk about our gracious hosts, Bonnie and Mark. They went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. Bonnie even dropped off a jar of homemade blueberry jam and a card for my birthday. You don't encounter kindness like that too often these days. It truly made our trip a memorable one.

A SLICE OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
Bonnie and Mark have the gift of hospitality! They will truly make sure you have the vacation of a lifetime at their rental. The carriage house's decor is beautiful and allows your mind to unwind in such a peaceful setting. The house faces the East so you are bound to experience a spectacular sunrise while sipping coffee oceanside. The majestic woods and the glistening waters of Joy Bay are breathtakingly beautiful. This setting made my vacation feel like a vacation with no worries in the world.

I also love to get out on the water to explore new sights and rented this home bc 2 kayaks were included. I had a chance to paddle Joy Bay, Gouldsboro Bay, and West Bay. I especially enjoyed paddling Joy Bay because there was rugged wilderness along the western shoreline. Trees lined the shoreline with very few homes. I felt like I was experiencing the scenery I'd see on a rugged backcountry camping trip, yet had the luxuries of a modern home!

I wish I lived closer because I would rent the place year round if I could!! :)

A little piece of heaven. Excellent place to unwind and explore the awesome beauty of the area. The Schoodic Pennisula (a 20 minute drive) is the most beautiful part of Acadia National Park (and not crowded!) The house was spotless and well cared for. An exceptional find!!

PEACEFUL OCEANSIDE MAINE OASIS

  • 5 of 5
Need a tranquil spot to unwind after a day of hiking or site seeing in Acadia National Park? Look no more. Nestled in the woods overlooking the bay, you will feel right at home.The Carriage House is tastefully furnished, comfortable and has everything you need to relax and take it easy, right down to the soft linens and fluffy robes.The kitchen is generously furnished with all the necessities for preparing simple meals or a gourmet dinner.We enjoyed watching the lobster fishermen at work in the bay and awoke to the sounds of sea birds and gentle waves each morning.The sunrise was beautiful from the deck of the house. There was a fire pit for enjoying a fireside evening overlooking the bay.Chairs on the dock provided the perfect spot to watch the birds and other wildlife. We tried several restaurants,Chester Pike's on Friday night for a great seafood meal, save room for homemade desserts and also for a delicious breakfast...yummy wild blueberry preserves.Ruth and Wimpy's Kitchen in Hancock has a great menu for a taste of Maine.The Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound is an experience not to be missed where wood fired boils are prepared.Choose your own lobster or twins and get ready for a feast. Bar Harbor is about 50 miles away but an easy trip if you want to tour Bar Harbor or catch a Whale watching trip.There is a large selection of restaurants and shops to choose from as well. If you find yourself in Bass Harbor stop by the Seafood Ketch.The scallop rolls were delicious served on their own in-house prepared buttered rolls. We sat on the outside and had a wonderful view of the harbor and mountains of Acadia. Schoodic Point is a short drive from the house and one of my favorite spots to view the granite coast and crashing waves.It is quiet here and there are not as many visitors as in the other parts of Acadia National Park.We hiked the Gorham Mountain trail and were rewarded by incredible views at the top.If you prefer not to drive the whole park area, there are Island Explorer Shuttles that connect you to all the other areas of the park. Your park pass entrance fee supports the Explorer.Stop by the Hulls Cove Visitor Center north of Sand Beach and Bar Harbor Green for more information and maps. My husband and I also travelled to Campobello Island, Roosevelt Cottage and the Head Harbour Light station in New Brunswick. Bring your passport, well worth the day trip.Mark and Bonnie were warm and wonderful hosts.They anticipated our every need.You will love it here.

THE PERFECT RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
The carriage house is the perfect location for a retreat from the fast paced world. It is quiet, immaculate, well thought out, beautifully decorated with fantastic views of the bay. The carriage house even had a hair dryer which pleased my wife. Our many rounds of questions were answered promptly and honestly. At first, we were a little concerned about the carriage house being away from it all but in actuality it is a perfect location to rest and relax and yet is close enough to great restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping. This is the ideal location to explore Down East Maine. While we stayed at the carriage we checked out the most of the byways of the Schoodic Penninula, Acadia, Lubec and New Brunswick as well as many other locations. It was a real treat for us to see where old family friends grew up in Lubec and then to see whales swimming off the coast of New Brunswick by East Quoddy Light. We are both intrigued by light houses and had the opportunity to photograph many during our vist. We had simple but excellent meals consisting mostly of crab, clams and lobster. While we thoroughly enjoyed the carriage house, our meals, traveling in Down East Maine, kayaking and even swimming in the bay, the best part of the trip was how well we were received by Bonnie and Mark. They treated us like old friends from the start and it only got better after that. ALL of their recommendations were perfect including where to find sea glass in the rough, where to go out to eat, where to pick sea lavender, where to buy fresh crab meat, etc, etc.We also got the chance to see their beautiful home and to go out to eat with them. The ONLY disappointment we hd on this trip was that we had to leave this beautiful part of Maine. Bonnie and Mark typify the Irish expression that " a stranger is a friend I have not met yet" Thanks to Bonnie, we both gained a pound or two feasting on her blue berry cake. Do not miss the chance to experience this part of Maine and the genuine Down East hospitality of Bonnie and Mark !

WONDERFUL TIME!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this ocean side carriage house. It was just as it was described in the write ups and pictures. It was very clean and really did have everything that we could possibly need. The ocean views were just beautiful at all times of the day. Since we were there in the fall we were also able to enjoy the beautiful fall colors as well. We enjoyed kayaking around in the bay with the extremely friendly and photogenic harbor seal. We were also surprised one day when a mature American Bald Eagle flew directly over our heads. That was amazing! We also got a good lesson in how tides work when we went out kayaking at low time. It did get lower! We enjoyed so many things about our stay at your carriage house. We will definitely tell out friends about it and to anyone trying to decide whether or not to try this place we say go for it. You will not regret it. The people are very friendly in the area. The food was excellent everywhere we went. There were places to shop, visit, hike, sight see, kayak, explore, you name it. The owners are wonderful, friendly and welcoming host. What more can I say. We had a fantastic stay. We will definitely plan to go back again. Thanks so much!
