Several years ago we were faced with what to do with this historic house. It is one of the last of its kind on the coast and most have been converted to McMansions or, long-ago, fell down. Any serious upgrade would have lost the charm of a simpler life and we chose to keep it, as much as possible, in its original form. It was once a summer inn with several wharves on the shore and steamer service to Bar Harbor. We have upgraded all the bathrooms and bedding and made it easier to keep clean, but it is still an old time Maine Summer Camp.

Our wonderful land is located on the east end of Berry's Cove with great views of Frenchman’s Bay and Mt. Desert Island along with direct access to the shore across the front lawn. With a southwest exposure, you’ll love the bright sunny days and gorgeous sunsets. You’ll be surrounded by lots of wonderful wildlife, including eagles, loons, herons, and many other sea and shore birds.

There are so many tourist attractions in the area it would be impossible to name them all. Enjoy all the amenities of nearby Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor with just a 25 minute drive (approximately 3 miles away by water). Northeast and Southwest Harbor and Blue Hill are all close by.. The main commercial area is Ellsworth (15 minutes drive) with everything you could ever need. There are numerous music festivals throughout the summer, excellent restaurants, and even a cinema for rainy days. Fun attractions include several scenic flight and whale watch companies, professional kayak tours, logging shows, miniature golf, and much more. There is a beautiful and clean swimming pond within easy walking distance over the woods path and of course you can brave the Atlantic on the shore. Lamoine Beach is a couple miles down the road as is the Lamoine State Park.

There is an outside Fire Pit available at owner's discretion. Use will be curtailed during dry weather.

A Beautiful Stay in Maine

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 9, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Dreamshore is a lovely cabin with a long lawn down to the ocean. Go clamming when the tide is out or put in a kayak when the tide is in. Staying in the cabin is like taking a trip back in time. Filled with generations of Cahn family antiques and artwork. It is well stocked with everything that you will need, Plenty of blankets, laundry and kitchen supplies. While the counters are from the 50's and the the ceilings are open to the rafters the place was spotless. We were very impressed about that. Mt Desert Isl. is about a 20 minute drive and food markets and farm stands are close by. So much to do and one week was just not long enough. I would highly recommend a stay at Dreamshore Cottage outside of busy Bar Harbor.
Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words. We are pleased when the cottage is appreciated for what it truly is - a piece of the past. Summer days in Maine are for kids, their friends, and their families!

This is a great place to stay. It has comfortable beds and is very clean. The location was quiet and beautiful. It is off the beaten path of the busy tourist areas but close enough that you can drive to them. The hosts were friendly and easy to work with. We would definitely stay again.

just the best for regeneration

This is the best place to recuperate from any kind of stress!!! Peaceful, quiet, caring owners. Kept very clean and well maintained. Matresses and beds were just perfect for our backs. Very close to the sea (no swimming here), with wonderful view to Acadia mountains. The best you can choose for families with kids or couples who looks for a quiet place. Lamoine Beach with its cold seawater is close to the property which is well described by the owners.
I would recommand it to anyone who looks for recreative vacation.
Owner's Response: Thank you kindly for the thoughtful and complimentary review. We would just like to add that there is a wonderful freshwater pond close by - about a 15 minute walk through the woods path. The pond is spring-fed and very clean and is always pleasantly warm for swimming from the end of June on. We are happy you enjoyed your stay!

Charming cottage with water views

We weren't sure what to expect, never having been to Maine but we were very happy with our cottage on Berry's Cove. The owners were wonderful to work with and when we arrived the cottage (or camp) was clean and welcoming. There was firewood stacked and ready on the porch, plenty of towels and everything you needed for a comfortable stay. The cottage has plenty of character and a very quiet setting which made for a peaceful vacation. The owners home is on the adjacent property which made it nice if we had a question but in no way intrusive. They were happy to share some of the bounty from their garden and restocked our firewood when we ran out. As other reviewers mentioned it was close enough to MDI that we made the trip in easily every day. All in all a wonderful experience.

Great Vacation Get Away

  • Stayed: Aug 2011
My family and I stayed a full week here and loved it. The house is clean, well appointed, and has a beautiful view. The owners obviously take great pride in their property and were genuinely eager to see that we had anything they could provide.
The property is close enough to MDI to be convenient and far enough away that you don't have to deal with the throngs of tourists on the island until a time of your choosing.
On the morning that it rained we made a fire in the fire place and just kicked back. What a great break.
I would highly recommend this place to anybody looking for quality down time in a beautiful location close enough to everything.

The Cottage has direct access to the shore across the front lawn. The shore is rocky and shale until the low water mark. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are about 25 minutes away by car and approximately 3 miles away by water. There are numerous music festivals nearby throughout the summer. Shopping is available in Ellsworth, about 15 minutes away, and there is the Lamoine General Store in town with a good lunch counter. Lamoine State Park is just down the road and Lamoine Beach is just past the Park with a great beach. Blunt's Pond is a 15 minute walk away through the woods for swimming with clear, clean water. This is a fantastic place for a summer vacation with your family.
