OCEANFRONT COTTAGE WITH VIEW OF MT DESERT ISLAND & CADILLAC MT

Lamoine Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

Vacation at this fully furnished and heated 3 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath cottage with a large deck and view of Mt. Desert Island. Fronted on Mt. Desert Narrows off Frenchman Bay and close to Acadia National Park the cottage is located halfway between Lamoine State Park and Lamoine Beach. Seals and seabirds are frequent visitors, resting on Googins Ledge in view of the cottage. It is eight miles to Ellsworth for shopping, cinema, and hospital care. It is also convenient to many restaurants and activities which cater to vacationers.

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 will be visited by 138 cruise ships between May and October 2014. 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 that 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 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. 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.

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

My family has been coming to this house for decades and it never disappoints. The location and the house are wonderful. Doty and Bob have thought of everything. My family and I had an amazing vacation and love, love coming back to this cozy home year after year.

Thank you, thank you!

A welcoming vacation home

  • Submitted: Oct 8, 2012
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
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.

Our week in Maine

We've stayed here four times over the last 5 years and loved every minute. The house has all the comforts of home and is clean and comfortable. Beautiful views from the deck, and so many places to explore nearby that we still haven't visited everywhere we would like. We recommend this cottage very highly. We just love it!

Columbus day Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 10, 2012
  • Stayed: Oct 2011
The cabin is a very warm and friendly place. We arrived late at night, but found welcoming notes and DELICIOUS pastries waiting for us. Fantastic views of the water can be seen from the deck, the many windows in the living room, and from the upstairs bedrooms. The state park and beach are a manageable walk in either direction while other attractions are only a short drive away.

Columbus day / end of the summer events include the closing weekend at the Atlantic Brewery; complete with belt-sander races. Sunset at Cadillac Mountain peak in Acadia National Park was only an hour away, well worth the trip.

The modern kitchen, dining table and deck all provided great ways to relax, cook and enjoy meals, and nice restaurants are within a 45 minute drive.

Would we go back? Absolutely YES!

Owner's Response: Thank you! In October, and especially around Columbus Day, there are more cruise ships visiting Bar Harbor to view the changing foliage, and often the shops are having end of the season sales as the main tourist season winds down.
