About Reine Tracy

This has been our family residence since 1943.

Why Reine Tracy chose Bernard

This was my parents' property. If it had not been for this property I may never have settled in the beautiful state of Maine. Even during the hottest of summer weather, it is usually very pleasant on the water here.

What makes this house unique

I have summered here all my life. My family came here every August from Long Island, New York. I remember the excitement arriving every summer, swimming at Long Pond, eating lobster, going to Jordan Pond, and hiking throughout Acadia's trails with my family and other relatives. Nice place to relax, unwind, smell the salt air, and pines. We arrived and immediately ran down to the beach to explore.

Great views and privacy in a good location

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 9 nights at this cottage in August 2013. We loved that we were situated on the water and could watch lobster boats and sailboats coming in and out of the harbor. At the same time, we appreciated the privacy that some pine trees gave us. We kept a kayak on the front lawn and carried it just a few short steps to the water to launch it. A short path leads to additional ocean frontage where you find big rocks suitable for climbing over, or sunbathing/relaxing on. We never went to a restaurant for dinner because we couldn’t imagine finding a better waterfront view.

The cottage is kept meticulously clean, the kitchen is fully equipped, the furnishings are comfortable, and the beds and bedding are up-to-date and comfortable.

We appreciated not being locked into a Saturday-to-Saturday rental, which is what the real estate brokered rentals require. Because of the owner’s flexibility and willingness to work with us, we were able to customize the length of our stay.

This cottage has been owned by the same family for many years. You can sense the happy memories that have been made here over the years. We were fortunate to have the opportunity to make our own happy memories here as well.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that the cottage met all your expectations! My family when staying at the footage enjoy eating in as well using the barbecue grill, crabmeat and lobster from across the harbor, and local produce from local organic gardners/ farmers market in town hill Fridays. Cookbooks are abundent in the cottage for reference and ideas for seafoods, barbecue. Glad the access for the kayaks was easy.

Lovely vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, our daughter and grandchildren 3 and 5, had a delightful stay at the cottage, which is clean and well-furnished. Our grandchildren absolutely adored climbing over the rocks along the shore, spent hours imagining themselves in pirate ships. What a lovely place, and easy access to hiking in Acadia. Loved our week there. Even saw a golden eagle. We'd come back in a flash.

Great vacation house with ease access to everything on the island

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent two weeks at this cozy, spacious house in August. We had friends visit one weekend so we had up to 4 people in the house. I would highly recommend this house to any group ranging from 2 to 6 adults. It was very clean and had all the amenities of home (full kitchen, outdoor grill, comfortable bed) plus the benefits of cottage living (private beach, large deck and outdoor fire pit overlooking bass harbor). We only had one rain day during our time there but we spent that entire day at the house playing games, reading books, and watching the boats travel the bay- very relaxing!! We managed to stay away from the TV for the first 8 days but finally gave in on day 9 and watched the news and the house has Netflix so we watched a movie one evening too.
We were primarily there to hike and we drove to our hiking destinations each day but there is an Island Hopper bus stop right at the end of the street that can take you anywhere on the island.
The owner was there when we arrived to greet us and show us the house. I see other comments about that experience but we personally liked that attention. She gave us great recommendations on things to do, restaurants, etc and was promptly on her way. We didn't find it imposing.
Again I would highly recommend MDI as a vacation destination and this house as a home for your time there. We already have our 2013 weeks booked!!

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and, I along with another couple, really enjoyed our stay here. This cabin was true to the Maine lifestyle and was everything we were looking for in a cabin. It was in a perfect, quiet, secluded area with our own private oceanfront access. Our only issue was that the owner made us arrive there at a certain time to pick up the key, and we could not leave until the house was inspected. Had I know this before I booked and paid in full, we could have planned accordingly because we had to drive all the way from Portland which was a 3 hour drive. Unfortunately, because of that we did not get to do all the things we wanted. Even with the inconvenience of having to meet with the owner on arrival and departure, I would still recommend this cabin to a friend.

Owner's Response: We are happy that your stay at our cottage was an enjoyable one. Due to scheduling differences we appologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused you. A small family cottage such as this requires that we meet our guests in person and feel it is neccessary to check back upon departure to see it all went well.

Notes:
This property is right on the ocean, bird life abundant, schooners anchor in front on occasion. This is a working lobster waterfront, sightings include seals, eagles, one frequently seen) blue herons, osprey, ducks, deer, etc. lots of other bird life. There's always something interesting to view from our point and the deck. Great place to sea kayak. Swans island ferry goes out multiple times daily from across Bass Harbor. Some boat excursions go out multiple times daily from our harbor. Great seafood restaurant and bar, near end of road (Thurston's) can walk to, also Seafood Ketch for bit more formal setting, with short drive to Bass Harbor, multiple restaurants in Southwest Harbor, all types in Bar Harbor. Area is known for lobster, crabmeat, and scallops. The deck with sliding glass doors-for morning coffee to start day and lunch and dinner with gentle sun, warms midday and cools when tide comes in. Nice modern barbecue for dinners. Very relaxing, private, and cozy place
