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.

Our family has owned this property since 1958. Although we have lived in many different places all over the globe, we have always called this place home. Our family speaks English, French, German, Russian, and Latvian.

Frederick & Aija Cahn purchased this cottage in 1958

This is a unique place to stay as it was originally built as a summer house. This is not someone's home that has been vacated for the summer - it was actually built to accommodate 'Rustcater's' from Bar Harbor who came over on regularly scheduled boat service. There used to be several docks in front. Although extensively renovated and improved, you can still live the life that existed back in a more leisurely and relaxed time.

A large and beautiful lawn with full grown trees down to the beach where you can enjoy a southwest exposure - that means afternoon sun and evening sun which is important on the sometimes cool Maine coast. An historical setting. And, your hosts are close by and ready to help with any issues that might arise.

Perfect Maine getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is a spacious, spotless gem of a seaside cottage. My family just spent an awesome week here. It's got all the amenities and is just close enough (and just far enough) to & from the beaten path. The owners were very pleasant and entirely accommodating, and if this review seems at all subdued, it's only because we hope to stay there again and we don't want someone else to book our week before we do! Again, this is a GREAT place to base a summer vacation; you will not be disappointed.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful week in Maine, and we absolutely loved our stay at this cottage. It was plenty large enough for all six of us, even through the one rainy day we experienced. It was spotlessly clean, and the owners were very friendly and entirely accommodating. Everything about the place, including its secluded location and proximity to Acadia, was to our liking. We intend to return, and to stay in this cottage again.

A Beautiful Stay in Maine

  • 5 of 5
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!

Great place

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.

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.
