Overview

Green Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Optional Bunkhouse, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-10)

Come and relax on the spacious deck over the shore of picturesque Branch Lake, jump in the crystal clear water, or take an early morning canoe or kayak to catch a moose at the inlet stream. This camp consists of a simple A-Frame with a first floor kitchen and a bathroom and common area opening to a large deck above the shoreline. Upstairs are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed, with windows overlooking the deck and lake; and a smaller room with two single beds.

Walk down the stairs from the deck to the private dock complete with kayaks and a canoe. A 14' fishing boat with an 8hp motor is also available.

Whether you plan on spending your days relaxing or playing on the lake, traveling to nearby Acadia National Park, or heading to Bar Harbor for a night out--you'll find fun, adventure and stories to bring home with you.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Jenn Shaw

Jenn and I both ended up here near Acadia National Park for much of the same reason. We have always enjoyed what this area offers--hiking the trails of Acadia, horseback riding on the carriage roads, and sailing in the coastal islands. We both knew we would raise a family here. We've been living on Mt Desert Island for 18 years now(about an hour from the lake) and now have three children who also enjoy sailing, riding hiking, and fishing with us. Oh yeah, we also have an over-affectionate Portuguese Water dog, Briar, and two spoiled horses.

Jenn Shaw purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Jenn Shaw chose Green Lake

This is a unique property situated quite literally on the lake shore. It's quiet and beautiful but not out of reach of shops and restauraunts. Our family has been coming to this lake for many years. It was by chance that Jenn and I settled just and hour away from this magical spot. It is and always will be a place for family traditions; a meeting place where we can touch base and work together on projects while building family history.

What makes this cabin unique

Walking on to the deck overlooking the lake, you can't avoid forgetting the trials and tribulations of everyday life. Your attention is invariably drawn to the loons calling to each other across the lake, to the bald eagle that makes it's rounds overhead while going back and forth to his nest on Dees Island; there is a feeling that this place is out in the middle of nowhere--a 10 minute paddle to the inlet in the early morning will often reward you with trout for breakfast and a moose sighting. The water is clear and inviting, and many summer days have been spent more in the lake than gazing over its beauty. Yet, within an hour, you can be hiking up Cadillac Mountain for a view of the Maine Coast, or heading out of Bar Harbor in search of whales or spending an evening in town.

Great lakeside cabin

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for a week in the beginning of September - weather was great the whole time if your considering that time of year. The cabin was exactly as advertised and was perfect for my needs. Everything in the cabin was in good shape, including all of the recreational equipment (boat, kayaks, etc.). If you’re looking for a well kept, quiet cabin on the lake, at a reasonable price, close to Bar Harbor and Acadia, and not too far from Baxter State Park which has great hiking, this is it. The owners are also really friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again if I were vacationing in the area.

Peaceful camp with a great view of the lake

  • 4 of 5
The Shaw's camp is beautifully located on Branch Lake. Although there are other cottages nearby, they are far enough away that you feel like you are on your own. The view of the lake, especially at sunrise is really spectacular. The house itself is simply furnished, but large enough and well equipped for a family of four. The large deck is excellent for relaxing in the sun and provides easy access for swimming and kayaking. The fact that we could use the kayaks and canoe was an added bonus. Our two boys were out basically every day. The camp is conveniently located, just 20 minutes from Ellsworth and about 40 minutes from Acadia, which made it easy to make day trips.
The listing gives an accurate description of what the camp was like. We really enjoyed staying there. Burr and Jenn Shaw are very friendly and helpful owners.
