QUIET GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed most recently on a low-visitation day at Acadia National Park. It was so nice to come back to this home with the warm outside firepit, the amazing pond views, and the sound of the loons. Having a full kitchen as well was most convenient. We could not have asked for a more perfect location. The water and boating activities as well as the fishing were a hit with everyone. The owner has to be one of the nicest people I've ever met. He is always there to help you if you should need it. I can't wait to return!

GREAT PLACE FOR A GREAT PRICE!

  • 5 of 5
This place was exactly what me and my friends were looking for. There was 4 of us, all in our 30’s, looking to spend a weekend away from the city and in the woods…and this place is actually in the woods. We stayed 3 nights, but wished we stayed longer. The owner, Tim, was very easy to get in contact with during the whole rental process, was helpful in the information he provided, and extremely generous to let us use the boats, fishing poles, ect. Everything inside and outside was clean and there were plenty of towels for our use. The fire pit definitely got it’s use! I would definitely rent this place again and recommend it for anyone looking to rent a house in the area.

PEACE AND QUIET!

  • 5 of 5
This wonderful cabin was exactly as pictured. It really is that close to the water! We spent a lot of time sitting outside enjoying the quiet and watching the bald eagles, loons and ducks. The lake was great for swimming and kayaking. It is so nice that the kayaks, paddles and life jackets are supplied by the owners (there's also a canoe, a rowboat and bikes). The house is fully equipped with towels, sheets, blankets, pots, pans, dishes, etc. - pretty much everything you need while there. Even all of the ingredients to make smores! And if you need to stay connected, there is also high speed internet and cable television. The owner, Tim, is great about making sure you arrived okay, have everything you need and about making suggestions for things to do in the area. It is close enough to Acadia that we spent time hiking there, but always looked forward to getting back to the quiet of the cabin. Our dogs were in heaven. They chased ducks, swam, kept watch from the dock, ran around the property and loved their nightly walks in the area. The location is fantastic in that it's a short drive to the local amenities and the town of Ellsworth, that has everything you may need, including an LL Bean outlet, is only about 15 minutes away. I would absolutely recommend this cabin to anyone interested in staying in the area!

GREAT TIME, GREAT FISHING!

  • 5 of 5
My family spent the week at the cottage in July 2013. The property was just as shown in the pictures. When we arrived the place was clean and ready for our enjoyment. The cottage has everything you need (pots,pans,dishes,towels,ect..). Our kids had fun swimming and jumping from the dock and the float...although our golden retriever had more! We also took advantage of the kayaks and did some paddling around. The lake is beautiful and it was amazing watching the bald eagles, loons and ospreys flying around- we got alot of pics! I'm an avid fisherman and found the fishing to be excellent- I caught several big smallmouth bass and some white perch as well. The cottage is has one of the nicest locations on the lake and is just steps from the water. Tim called to make sure everything was going well and is very good at making sure you are taken care of so you can have a great stay. We would definitely rent there again and most likely will. Great time!
