Inviting cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5
This cabin in the woods was remarkably inviting for our family reunion. Light, bright interior in pine wood, clean, tastefully decorated with comfort in mind, complete kitchen, and a screened porch fronting on pine woods that we especially enjoyed. Within walking distance are tennis courts, beach, town wharf and supurb dining at country inn. We enjoyed biking, kayaking, beach combing, berry picking along quiet country roads and all that Acadia National Park has to offer. Owner was most helpful and pleasant to work with. A great private getaway or base for exploring the Maine coast. We did both.

Relaxing, peaceful spot

  • 5 of 5
We just came back from a week long vacation - although we could have stayed another week! We rarely vacation without our dogs so it was very nice to be able to take them along. The semi-private beach was the best...we only saw one person the entire week, and I found so much sea glass! The sunsets were gorgeous over the water. The enclosed glass patio was amazing and I spent most of my time out there. Each window pane slid open so the breeze through the screen was perfect! The private yard surrounded by woods was great to let the dogs romp. Acadia was less than an hour away and was really worth the trip to see the sunrise. We hope to go back again!

The cabin was cozy, clean and comfortable. The location was beautiful and close to Acadia. The cabin was well-stocked w/ everything - and Jane was a very gracious host. Overall, an excellent experience.

We arrived later in the season with our two dogs. It was everything and more than expected. The weather had been relatively warm but the lovely wood stove was started first thing in the a.m. and again in the evening. The kitchen didn't lack a thing, and we found it was more fun to cook in and enjoy the ambiance of the cottage and the woods than travel to a restaurant although there were good places to eat in the area. This is the type of vacation home where you have some supplies left by others, and you can use them, then leave your extras or make replacements to leave for the next renters. The glassed in sun porch with sky roof was nice to sit out on while sun rays were dancing through the tree branches. We and the dogs made several trips to the private beach through the woods. The view of Cadillac and other mountains on Mt. Dessert Island was beautiful. Our favorite place to visit was Acadia Nat'l Park at Schoodic Point which was far less populated than a visit to the main park on Mt. Dessert Isle. At Schoodic, only a few minutes away, we picnicked close to the water and got some lovely views motoring around the Point.
We are very grateful to the owners for being so accessible for questions and details when needed and for accepting our beloved, well-traveled canines.
We hated to leave as the cottage felt like home and we relaxed so well. We recommend this cottage to anyone who likes a bit of privacy and the wonders of nature, but is willing to travel 1/2 hour on either side of Hancock for breathtaking scenes in both parts of Acadia Nat'l Park and surrounding areas.

lovely quiet house in the woods

  • 5 of 5
This house was clean and well laid out. It had very comfortable beds, great hot water, good kitchen, excellent lighting and a charming wood stove. The owner was very responsive to our inquiries. Because the house is nestled in the woods, it felt very private. Though not on the shore, it is close to it as well as to major attractions in the area. I would certainly recommend this to anyone!
