EASTBROOK, MAINE - CLEAN LAKEFRONT RENTAL - NEW COTTAGE HOME - WIFI / TV

Eastbrook House Rental Photos and Description

Peaceful & Private Lakefront - 2BR, 2FB, Sleeps 6 - Swim / Fish / Boat / Hike

40 minutes to Bangor or Acadia National Park, 20 to Ellsworth. This new, modern, clean, lakefront house on a quiet, wooded, 4 acre site (not crowded next to other houses), is on Abrams Pond. Great swimming, fishing and boating can be had here. All located on a private dirt-road which allows for safe walking or biking. Very child friendly. The perfect spot from which to explore Downeast Maine.

The house is easily accessible by car, the last 1/2 mile down a car-friendly dirt road. On the main level are a deck, screened porch, kitchen/dining/living room, MBR/MB. Washer/Dryer. Fully equipped kitchen with new 5-burner gas stove and dishwasher. Upstairs are office, bedrooms and another bath. On the lower level is a play room with sliders and french doors to a partially covered patio area . A fire-pit and large yard for outdoor play. Private dock for swimming and boating. Cottage rental includes two-seat kayak, paddles and safety jackets. Linens & all towels provided.

Available May-November: Spring is the great awakening -- fishing and birdwatching are both at their best -- a chance to savor the long days without the summer crowds.

Summer hardly needs mentioning -- July 4th parades and fireworks, boating, swimming, hiking, fishing, relaxing, eating -- classic Maine!

Fall is for foliage (peaking around the second-third week of October) and festivals, as well as boating, swimming, hiking, hunting, etc.

Rents by the week (Saturday-Saturday). Hand-built by local craftsman, this house is truly one-of-a-kind.

Electric Heat Upstairs

Gas Heat in Master Bedroom.

Gas Stove in Living Room/Kitchen/Dining area.

Gas Heat in Lower Level play room.

Ceiling Fans and portable fans in all rooms.

Airy, bright, sky-lit layout: The house has a porch and deck on the main living level and a partially covered patio area on the lower level. There are multiple outdoor tables and seating areas, and a fire pit.

There is an open living room / kitchen / dining and screen porch area. High ceilings in living area and master bedroom and bath. Gas-burning stove in the living area, large windows for views of the lake and tall trees. Beautiful tile floors and new carpet throughout. Large master bedroom. There is a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher. Clothes Washer/Dryer on main floor.

Linens provided. Beach towels included!

When not used for sleeping, the Upstairs Bedroom is a very bright and welcoming extra living space. Upstairs has a TV (no cable), VHS and DVD players, as well as a Windows PC (PC for internet and some children's games are installed). Bring your game console system if you like.

All bedrooms have windows facing the lake.

Wireless broadband Internet in all rooms and reaches throughout the property. Surf the web on your phone or pad while sitting on the dock or floating in the kayak.

My parents bought this property in the early 60's: They were both teachers and had summer vacation free to live in Maine. As a result I vacationed and summered in the area for my whole child-life. I held jobs in the blueberry business both raking and on a farm receiving and transfer station. I grew to appreciate the abundant wildlife and natural beauty that this site and the surrounding area had to offer. I learned that Acadia National Park is the only National Park in the North East. By day, if it wasn't blueberry season yet, I swam in the lake, read (you'll have internet), hiked or biked down the dirt road or just generally communed with nature. The Owls, Loons and Cicadas are a nightly symphony.

Now I bring the kids back to do the same. They love to wander on the dirt road, swim, kayak, play ping pong, air-hockey and basketball, and have the nightly campfire and s'mores. All on a quiet and private 4-acre lake-front site.

It is a great location with easy access to Ellsworth, Bangor (I-95), Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

AWESOME GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We found this great retreat thanks to a friend that lives in the area and were so glad she told us!! Found the house clean well taken care of and with plenty of space for all of us. The kids were occupied between the air hockey table inside and the boats outside. We were kept occupied visiting and eating as the kitchen there is just like being at home it has everything a chef needs! This is a great place to stay and we will definitely be back this year.

GREAT PLACE TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL.

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the Goldman's home in Eastbrook. The house was very well accomdated and supplied and is very child friendly. My toddler had a blast there with all of the games and fun things to do outdoors. Mitch was very easy to communicate with and the entire reservation process was very simple. He also provided me with lots of great informaiton to make the most of our stay. Thanks for a great vacation!

GREAT HOUSE FOR ALL SEASONS!

  • 5 of 5
Great house for all seasons! Quiet, serene & away from it all. Being from NYC this was a welcome change for all of us. It felt like we had a better chance of seeing a bear than people! Secluded yet close enough to town & other activities- like Acadia National Park & Bar Harbor. This year we rented in the Spring which was perfect weather for our hiking & biking adventures in Acadia. Last year we rented in mid August, at the height of blueberry season & perfect for feasting on blueberries. Both were great fun for young & old alike.

Both times, from the moment you step out of the car & into the driveway you can smell the pine/fir trees all around. Mmmm...nature at its best! Across the road is a huge blueberry field. The birds are chirping & the chipmunks are scurrying about. Down the path is the pond, alive with sounds of ducks, loons, frogs & various other wildlife. We’ve even seen an adult & a baby Bald Eagle & a Great Blue Heron!

The house was clean, new & spacious enough that our boys claimed the upstairs & we claimed the master bedroom on the main floor. Our toddler daughter slept in a child size futon in the bedroom with us. On the kitchen table, the Goldman’s left a House Book, welcoming us with a wealth of info about the nearby area, dining & events that we found very helpful. They also left current newspapers & other guides that made planning our day trips easier. Loved the PC connected to the internet, preloaded with helpful shortcuts to Maine links & guides!

We swam in the pond, kayaked in the early morning when the mist was still coming up off the water, played ping pong, darts & air hockey, did arts & crafts & played with the dollhouse on the screened in porch, swayed in the hammock, barbecued, took walks down the road to the little sand beach & watched the dragonflies follow us down the path, roasted marshmallows, made s'mores & ate blueberries. On rainy days we played games & puzzles. The house also had wireless broad band internet so we could watch TV/movies.

It was a great escape from the everyday craziness & never ending chores. Time seemed to slow down for a while when we were here. Springtime offered us very little traffic & congestion. It was like having the road & sites all to ourselves. Summertime especially mid-August was great too because of all the blueberries & pancake breakfasts!

Next time we’ll rent in the fall. I can only imagine how beautiful the pond & countryside will look with the foliage ablaze with color!

EASTBROOK DAYS

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time this year with 2 of my 3 daughters, 2 of 4 grandchildren, 1 nephew, 1 son-in-law and a girlfriend. The ability to bring pets the first week was much appreciated. You will find a few extra frisbees left behind to replace the one our dog chewed. The dog had a ball learning to swim in the pond. The fishing was great. My men and granddaughters caught a 5 gal pail full of white perch. The men cleaned them (not my job) had 1 fishfry and froze the rest to take home. After that it was catch & release only. 2 bathrooms, washer, dryer, and dishwasher means I get more time to go kayaking (What a plus). We brought a 6 foot folding table to set up on the screened-in porch and had many relaxing meals, card games and puzzle sessions. As you have no closets, I bought an inexpensive clothes rack.. I left it in the upstairs bunk room. Thanks again, Coleen in CT

IDEAL COTTAGE HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Our family arrived at this lovely vacation home in Eastbrook, ME to find a clean, comfortable, child-friendly haven of rest. It is situated just steps from a calm and serene pond (more like a lake) where our family enjoyed spending time conversing, watching ducks, and having personal devotions.

The owners (the Goldman family) provided us with excellent service and all the amenities that we needed to feel at home. There are also several nearby shopping centers in Ellsworth where we were able to purchase food, clothing, and souvenirs and a wonderful place to attend church (Franklin Baptist Church) only a few miles away. Acadia National Park is also a short drive (less than an hour) away and a wonderful place to enjoy nature.

All in all - a great place to stay to visit beautiful Maine!

NOTICE: on Google Maps there are two Abrams Pond Roads. The road this house is on is really called Dickens Farm Rd., and is marked at the turn-off with a normal green street sign. Dickens Farm Rd. becomes a dirt road that goes down between two barns. Our driveway is 1/2 mile down the dirt road, on the right.

Eastbrook is close to Ellsworth, Bangor, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Close enough for easy access even during peak times, or you can remain at 'camp' and avoid the crowds altogether. Depending when you go you may not see any other people, around camp and the lake, all week. There is no better location in New England for outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, sailing, beach-combing, and fall foliage viewing.
