LUXURY LAKEFRONT HOME - NEAR ACADIA, BAR HARBOR

Blue Hill House Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Year-Round Lakefront 4 BR Home Near Acadia, Bar Harbor & Blue Hill

Gorgeous lakefront home nestled on 2.2 very private acres. With over 250 feet of frontage on Toddy Pond, the house sits 75 feet from the water, atop a small rise, providing a lovely view of the lake through the trees. Toddy Pond is one of the most desirable lakes in downeast Maine. The charming oceanfront town of Blue Hill is only 15 minutes away, with Acadia and Bar Harbor about a 45 minute drive.

This year-round home is well appointed, with a gourmet kitchen, luxury master suite, and maple floors throughout. The living, dining, and kitchen areas share an open floor plan, anchored by a massive granite fireplace, providing a very spacious feel, even for larger groups. A spectacular arched window casts a sunny disposition in the living area throughout the day.

The following are actual recent guest comments:

'Your house is a first class act. We loved it.'

'…we couldn't have asked for a more perfectly appointed and relaxing home for our vacation.'

Great Lakefront Getaway!: Toddy Pond is the perfect lake for a Maine getaway. Ten miles long, but only a mile or so wide, it has three distinct sections, and many rock outcroppings, making it the choice for those looking for a quieter alternative to other area lakes. (It’s not conducive to large pleasure boats because of its topography.) The home is located on the western shore of the middle section. So if you are looking for a place of solitude to relax, swim, fish, and canoe, but with the convenience of nearby attractions, this is the place for you.

Very centrally located. In addition to the traditional Bar Harbor and Acadia area, Castine, Blue Hill, Deer Isle, and Stonington are all lovely trips a short distance from the home.

Relaxing Getaway

My husband and I found Loon Cove to be the perfect getaway from NYC!

The house itself has amazing high ceilings, lots of windows (with plenty of natural light) and a big open kitchen. The large master bedroom has a walk through closet that leads to a nice big bathroom.

During our stay we opted for a mix of day trips to various little fishing villages and evenings in front of the big stone fireplace. Places that stand out include, Stonington, Camden and Schoodic Point inside Acadia National Park.

We also visited a small farm down the road, (Quill's End Farm) that produces all their own milk, cream and various meat you can buy. In town, the Blue Hill Coop is great for most of your organic food needs.

This was a lovely vacation for us and I would highly recommend it to others!

A most enjoyable week and a prefect place to stay

8 of us very much enjoyed our stay at Loon Cove. The house was in a good location for day trips to Acadia NP, Deer Island, Castine, Blue Hill and other locations.

Sunrise across Toddy Pond were fantastic. The trees were changing into the many colors of fall.

We would recommend this location. There were not any children with us, but the location would be very child friendly.

The house was as billed and very comfortable with large windows facing the lake and lots of light.

Dan(owner) was very helpful and has a large binder of local information, restaurants, directions and suggestions. He also emails you this information when the final payment is made so that you can plan ahead. His directions for arrival from the south were right on.

Despite staying in Maine for only three days, our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Loon Cove. The house exceeded our expectations and provided a beautiful view of the lake out back. It was also well maintained and provided anything and everything when it came to entertainment - ping pong table, movies, bikes, etc.

All the recommendations/directions from the owner were very detailed and worth taking a look at. Our favorite places were Bar Harbor and Cadillac Mountain, which were a reasonable commute from the house. You can hike along the mountain or visit Sand Beach, which is located in the same area.

Overall, our stay was relaxing and welcoming. We would definitely love to come back sometime!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted to escape the hustle and bustle of New York City, and the Toddy Pond house was the perfect place to rest and enjoy the quiet Maine countryside and shore. We spent few days enjoying the quiet, simply reading by the fire and sitting out by the lake enjoying the sunrises and sunsets. Eventually, we explored Blue Hill (bookstore, restaurants, co-op). Then it was on to Acadia National Park (sunset on Cadillac Mountain not to be missed), and taking the mail boat for a day on Isle Au Haut (the Seal Trap hike was one of the best we've ever experienced). We used Maine: An Explorer's Guide by Tree & English) with great success. Lots of good food, to say the least. Belfast is not to be missed - particularly the art museum and the farmer's market just behind it. Other side trips too many and interesting to describe here.

The house itself is fantastic - clean, spacious, full of light, warm and quiet. Just close enough to things for convenience, and far enough away that we felt we were having the remote experience we wanted. All in all, we would gladly return here with friends for another visit, perhaps in July. Our October visit was filled with beautiful autumn leaves and crackling after-dinner fires. We recommend the Toddy Pond House most highly. Dan was delightful, helpful, and seems like an all round good fellow. We'll be back!

distinct sections, and many rock outcroppings, making it the choice for those looking for a quieter alternative

to other area lakes. (It’s not conducive to large pleasure boats because of its topography.) The home is

Harbor about a 45 minute drive.

Actual guest comments about the location and the house:

'This is an incredibly well equipped house and wonderfully situated. A great family vacation!'

'The location was gorgeous, the house was perfect, the abundance of dry firewood and generous house supplies was amazing.'

Other Activities: canoing and kayaking
