Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a relaxing, fun time here. The home has everything you need. The kitchen is well-equipped, and has a lot of great gadgets. We christened the lobster pot one evening, and had a fun time playing board games. Pictionary became a quick favorite. A true home away from home! The only bad part of the week was having to leave on Saturday!"

Spectacular House, Views and Location

  • 5 of 5
Aerie is an excellent property for either "active" or "relaxation-oriented" guests. The house has an exceptional combination of decks, windows and vistas which provide superb views of Frenchman's Bay and the adjacent coastlines. The house is very well equipped for "visiting chefs" and for those who enjoy reading, playing movies/games, absorbing the spectacular sunsets, nature-watching, etc..

We enjoyed nearby hiking (Schoodic Mtn, Black Mtn), kayaking (Donnell Pond, Sullivan Bay, Frenchman's Bay) and bicycling/walking in the peaceful, lightly traveled Hancock Point neighborhoods. There are a wide range of restaurants and food offerings nearby.

Aerie's location offers visitors equally convenient access to either the quieter Downeast coastal area or the more recognized, busier Bar Harbor region.

What a treat!

  • 5 of 5
Such a wonderful place to visit that even the government shut down of Acadia Park didn't diminish a thing. The house is located far enough away to not be hampered by tourists, but close enough to everything you might want. Surprisingly could not find any thing wrong with the house or area. Betsy was more than accommodating with information and followed through to see that we were aware of all the fun possibilities in the area. Our vacation time fortunately allowed us to take advantage of the wonderful fireplace. Sitting by the fireplace reading a book and enjoying the magnificent view was so soothing. Most importantly, everything in the house was accommodating from the eclectic decorating to having everything you needed. Comfortable and fun, we will be returning. I promise that if the pictures look like you would enjoy this home, you will.

Aerie is a beautiful home! The listing was absolutely accurate and it was even more breathtaking in person. The location is perfect for a get away - you can stay at Aerie and relax with the superb view from the deck, or within a few minutes be exploring the Maine coast, antique shops, or Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The house is well stocked with not only basics, but many extras including kitchen gadgets, pillows, reading material and sea treasures found on the beach below. The owner was very responsive to our questions and made our transactions easy. I'd recommend Aerie to any group looking for a getaway. My hope is that I'll be able to go back!

In mid-May we had a restorative stay in this serene and lovely home. Aerie is large and well laid out with gorgeous rooms but we found it very cozy for two. It is thoughtfully stocked with everything imaginable for cooking or comfort. We spent hours on the deck taking in the views, watching the water by day and then stargazing at night. Lobster boats chugging by, loons calling and an eagle even flew right over my head! Most days it was hard to tear ourselves away from the house but it is in a beautiful area. Lots of exploring to do, scenic rides, great walks, Maine crafts to purchase, and of course tasty local foods.
Our stay was like a deep calming breath. We hope to return!

Dazingingly Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5
DO get your groceries BEFORE you arrive at Aerie (don't forget the wine) because you will NOT want to leave once you get there! If you are looking for peace and tranquility, yet, some fine dining and culture close by, Aerie is the creme de la creme of places to stay! The MORE THAN ample stocked home offers comfy and cozy sophistication with views to DIE FOR. Wood fires to cry for.... beds and blankies to Sigh for. You will want for NOTHING! It is so adequately equipped with just about EVERYTHING you could possibly need or want. A multitude of dishes, pots, pans, utensils (many so cool and whimsical), linens, blankets, dvds, cds, stereo, fireplace/firewood, matches, really NICE bbq grill, lobster steaming pots, outdoor furniture, the softest/most plush towels, bicycles, helmets, the list is endless!!! Washer/Dryer....Every detail tended to. The property managers: just a phone call away. We can't WAIT to go back!! So Bright and Airy (Aerie)....even on the dreariest, rainy day! There's NOTHING not to like!!!

Absolutely Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5
This house was the perfect place for my first trip to the beautiful state of Maine. It was so convenient for visiting nearby Bar Harbor, Acadia, Winter Harbor, Jonesport,etc. The house is well equipped and the view from the deck is nothing short of perfect.

This lovely cottage is conveniently located between Bar Harbor & Acadia National Park and Schoodic peninsula, also part of Acadia. Both destinations (with beauty that attracts visitors from around the world each year ) are within just a 35 min. drive and are abundant with trails, lakes, mountains, and beaches as well as shops, theaters, museums, and fine dining. Whale watching, mountain biking, and kayak tours are all recommended. The cottage is also only a minute or two from Hancock Point summer community where you can dine at the renowned Crocker House Country Inn, visit the Hancock Point Chapel, play tennis on clay courts, or swim/fish/boat off the Hancock Point dock (where sailing lessons are offered for children and teens during July and August). Ellsworth is only a 15 minute drive from the cottage where you’ll find shopping centers, malls, restaurants and cafes. Bangor International Airport is a 45 min. drive from the cottage and the smaller Trenton Airport is just 20 min. away.
