A quiet family vacation with the loons

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely spot. In our opinion, this house had the choice spot on the pond, which was so quiet and peaceful at all times during our stay. (In other words, we did not see or hear one power boat or jet ski during our stay.) We are a family with three teens, so the kayaks were abundantly used by all. We especially enjoyed communing with the loons, who let us kayak (quietly) fairly close to them without concern. With our loon visits, our early morning kayak trips on glassy waters were the highlight, for sure. Bald eagle sightings were icing on the cake...and, yes, we were fortunate enough to see a double rainbow on our first day. One note to those with very young children: the pond has a very gradual beach, so this would really be a perfect spot for children who want to putter around and splash in the water.

A trip into Ellsworth is very doable, as is some hiking or exploring in Acadia. We particularly enjoyed Schoodic Peninsula. We ate at home most nights, but Finn's Pub is a great stop for dinner, as is the Riverside Cafe for breakfast (both in Ellsworth).

We did have a couple of rainy days (very stormy, in fact). We never lost power (disappointing our daughter greatly), and the books, games, puzzles and DVDs got us through very nicely (Chinese checkers and Pachisi (Parcheesi), anyone?). The house itself is very spacious and comfortable with a beautiful view of the pond. Highly recommended all around.

Perfect getaway for large families!!

  • 5 of 5
We cannot say enough good things about this home! Everything was just perfect! The house was spacious, clean, comfortable, and inviting. It definitely felt like "home" while we were there!

The owners are extremely friendly and were readily available to discuss any questions we had prior to the trip. About a week or 2 before the trip, the owner e-mailed out directions and a list of things we would/wouldn't need to bring, which was so helpful and much appreciated!!!

Some things we liked best about the house are: waking up every morning and having a cup of coffee out on the deck overlooking the peaceful and quiet lake, the spaciousness and openness of the first floor, the extremely comfortable beds, the fully-stocked kitchen, having access to a laundry machine and dishwasher, having the sheets/towels provided (this is HUGE with a large family!), the wide selection of movies, and the sizable yard for lawn games.

Some of the hi-lights of our trip were fishing (my dad caught a 19" small-mouth bass), swimming, kayaking (my 3 kids ages 8, 6, and 5 all learned to kayak that week on the lake and they LOVED it!!), watching and feeding the families of ducks, campfires and board games at night, and a day trip to Bar Harbor.

We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a fun, relaxing, and peaceful getaway. Both kids and adults had a wonderful and memorable trip!!

The most relaxing vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed here two years in a row and absolutely loved it both times. Everything about it was perfect. The house is so cozy, the water is beautiful and you are close to Acadia National Park and beautiful Bar Harbor. I will return again and again! As a matter of fact I already have reservations for 2013.

Getaway from it all

  • 5 of 5
My family and I loved the getaway! It really is serene and an idyllic setting. We had a great family time with our kids with us, 18, 11 and twin 1 yr olds. The grass heading out to the water was enjoyable to let the kids play and run around. We setup the volleyball/badminton net and even caught fish with nets, no luck on the poles. It was a good 20 minute drive into town, and not too far from Acadia. We are planning on coming back up next year and in future years. Thanks J for making this a home away from home with all the extras!

Great place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in July at the cottage, no-one wanted to go home!

Two families (4 adults and 4 children). The water is perfect for small children (ours are 3, 5, 9 and 11) and the pond is great to go out in the kayaks. The life vest that were there fitted all of us.

The Kitchen was fully functional - we had our very own surf and turf, although we would recommend a stop in Ellsworth on the way there for groceries, there is a small shop a few minutes away for emergency supplies and a good breakfast sandwich!

Bar Harbour and Acadia National Park were great day trips, we even went up to Campobello Island to go whale watching (just remember that the island is on Atlantic time!). We're sure that there are lots more great day trips to do, but we found it very hard wanting to leave the peaceful setting.

We would all highly recomend this rental, the owner was very friendly and very informative about the property to make sure that it was exactly what we were looking for.

We'll be back in a few years for sure.
