Overview

Lamoine Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy all Downeast Maine has to offer from this fully furnished and heated 3 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath cottage. Fronted on Eastern Bay off Frenchman Bay and close to Acadia National Park, the cottage is located halfway between Lamoine State Park and Lamoine Beach. There are excellent views Mt. Desert Island, and seals, loons and other seabirds resting on Googins Ledge from our large deck.

While many people choose to spend their vacation entirely at the cottage it is only 22 miles by car to Bar Harbor, or six miles by boat/kayak to the Bar Harbor town pier. Picturesque Bar Harbor is full of shops, galleries, restaurants and museums, and is a popular stop for cruise ships. There are also many activities to take advantage of in Acadia National Park. The park entrance and visitor center are about 16 miles from the cottage. You can be as active or passive as you choose. If hiking and biking are not your passion, the Park Loop road will take you around much of the national park. The auto road which goes to the top of Cadillac mountain is a must do. At 1532 feet, it is the highest point on the eastern seaboard. From there you can view the first sunrise and sunset daily in the United States. Inside the park are a series of carriage roads created so that the millionaire 'summer people', as they were known, could traverse between their mansions. Though most of these summer homes are gone, the roads remain and are perfect for biking or hiking. There are carriage tours that you can pick up at the famous Jordan Pond House, where you can also enjoy tea and pop-overs. LL Bean sponsors the Island Explorer bus system, which lets you travel free around much of Mount Desert Island in their eco-friendly, propane powered buses.

Since this is Maine, the shore in front of the cottage is a combination of rock, sand, shells, and seaweed. The tide rises approximately 11 feet and it is about 1 1/4 miles across to the island shore. The water is deep enough that the site of Lamoine State Park was at one time used to refuel US Navy vessels with coal. Today the bay is populated with lobster boats, sailboats, and kayakers. The pier that remains is a great fishing spot and the short walk over to the state park would be a great activity. The ocean water is brisk and refreshing, but in town there is a freshwater pond that has great swimming.

As we look right over to Cadillac Mountain it's an easy place to fall in love with. Find it at Latitude 44.45092, Longitude -68.292905. Check location on Google Maps - 8 Sand Dollar Alley, Lamoine, Hancock, Maine 04605

Excellent Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We spent an excellent week here in August. The cottage has everything you could possibly need and feels like home. It's quiet location is perfect for visiting the Acadia area and has some incredible views at any time of day. Bob and Dottie were incredibly welcoming and helpful with suggestions for places to visit during the stay.

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week here in early September. Beginning with the warm welcome , everything was perfect. the view from the deck changes all day long with the tides, gulls and loons serenaded our stay. the cottage is cozy and comfortable and just a short (20minute0 drive to Acadia national park and another ten minutes to Bar Harbor. the hosts are charming and discrete and made sure the wifi worked well as that was important for us. Lamoine is a quaint, quiet little town with a beautiful, wild stony beach and a goat farm that sells fresh cheese. The cottage is off the main road and quiet. all you hear are the waves. the kitchen is well appointed for those, like us, who like to do their own cooking and there is plenty of info for those who want to go out to eat. Having vacationed many times in Down East and Acadia, this was the best rental yet. We didn't get around to kayaking, but for those who like that, this is the perfect venue with easy access to the water.

Owner's Response: September is our favorite month, still warm during the day, and fewer tourists, lending an even more peaceful aspect to the stay. Glad your stay was so enjoyable.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a great time during our week stay at the terrific cottage with the million dollar view of Mount Desert Island. Dottie and Bob were so welcoming and helpful and the cottage had everything we needed and more. We were also able to launch our kayaks right from the property and paddle over to see "The Ovens" on Mount Desert Island.

Our week went by so fast and we were so busy with all the things to see and do that we never had a chance to relax on the wonderful deck! We highly recommend this comfortable homey cottage. Sue & Mike

Owner's Response: It's always wonderful to have enthusiastic kayakers who can take advantage of paddling the protected waters right in front of the cottage. WE look forward to their return.

A welcoming vacation home

  • 5 of 5
We were so spoiled the week we stayed here! The house was very clean; the pictures are very accurate, however they can't relay the "homey" feeling you feel as soon as you enter. We had wonderful weather and when we weren't hiking, kayaking or visiting Bar Harbor, the deck was a great place to relax. We were lucky to see the resident eagle on the afternoons that we were "home." Dining out in Bar Harbor & Ellsworth was great! Dottie and Bob were so welcoming and very helpful. We can't wait to stay here next year! Marc & Pam

Dot and Bob are delightful to work with. They were good with communication and followup and also suggesting good things to do. The house was in a good location if you didn't want to go to Bar Harbor each day. We opted for doing that a lot and it added 40 minutes per day of travel time. Not awful, just a consideration for future guests. The house needs some upgrades. The water lines constantly made noise from air in the water lines. The living room furniture should be updated. However, these are minor things. The kitchen and bedrooms and bathrooms were all great!! I've never seen a better stocked kitchen. The house was also extremely clean in every way. Maintained with pride. If I go back again, I'm definitely going to bring a kayak or rent them nearby. It's such a beautiful setting. We saw eagles and seals laying on the island from the house porch during low tide. Just beautiful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words, and for the valid points that need to be addressed. The couch is being replaced this week; it was bad timing that it is happening after your stay. The air in the water line issue is being addressed at the end of the rental season, so as to not inconvenience any of the tenants. It is a minor annoyance and not a health or safety concern.
Thank you for your comments on the kitchen, bedrooms, bath, and overall appearance, we do appreciate it, as we do take pride in the appearance.
The location is off island, which gives a great view of Cadillac Mt, but also means there is a little travel time to Acadia. The location is perfect for kayakers, and I hope you do take advantage of that on your next trip.
