Guestbook comments from the owner
Your home was lovely, and Jean-Paul even lovelier. My six year-old son remarked as we pulled away in our car, “I’m going to miss Jean-Paul and Frankie . . . I’ll always remember them.” JP really went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable; he was the ultimate host. Please do thank him again for his warmth and generosity.



We had no idea that we were the first renters you had ever entertained in your gorgeous home! It was a delight and a privilege, and I hope that we didn’t leave it in too much disarray. We were a large party, and the size and layout of the house gave us plenty of space to spread out – I can definitely say that we were the envy of everyone attending my cousin’s wedding.



Thank you again for a perfect weekend, and best wishes to JP and your son –



Warmest regards,

Theresa

Jean-Paul and Melinda have owned the house since 1991. For many years they ran the popular 'Jean-Paul's Bistro' from this location. Since closing the restaurant, they have fully renovated the house for luxury living. They are now living in France for a good part of each year, dividing their time between Blue Hill and Villefranche sur Mer.

Melinda Reach purchased this house in 1991

The location was selected for unique setting, ocean-front views in the middle of our small, charming village.

We have been able to create an oasis in the village, with magnificent gardens and views, right in the center of everything. Each bedroom suite has complete privacy with its own modern bathroom, luxury linens, beautiful antique furniture and paintings from renowned artists. The house offers two living rooms, a large modern kitchen and formal dining room, along with a screened porch.

A Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5
The moment you step through the gate of this house you feel welcome. Melinda and Jean-Paul, the homeowners, are lovely people and beyond helpful. We rented the house for a week because our daughter was getting married in a neighboring town. This is a gorgeous, elegant, spacious, beautifully decorated home, but still very comfortable. It has amazing views and a great in-town location, convenient to shops and restaurants. The large gourmet kitchen is fully equipped. The house is perfect for entertaining – we had a brunch for 25 people on the lawn with harbor views and, on another night, we had eight of our friends in the living room while our adult children hosted many of their friends in the family room. The lovely pictures in the listing truly represent the house. We couldn’t have asked for better accommodations; well worth the rental fee.

Incredible rental and stay

  • 5 of 5
A beautifully appointed and luxurious residence in scenic Mid-Coast Maine; ideal for larger gatherings. This is a first class residence. The setting is very restive yet close to the Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park areas. The home is spacious with many lovely areas to gather yet provides privacy with its many en suite bedrooms. And the kitchen is wonderful, large, and complete.

We rented it for a reunion of multiple family members and couples. It is absolutely ideal for such an occasion, especially for a mature audience. Large gatherings or small, if you desire high class accommodations, with all the conveniences, this is the place. No place better in all of Mid-Coast Maine! We would love to come back if the occasion presents itself. The pictures do it justice. Highly recommended!

Dream House...Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Meticulous, inviting, comfortable, and beautifully furnished home provided the setting for a wonderful stay in one of my favorite Maine towns. Beauty was everywhere, inside and out--all designed to promote a full appreciation of Maine. Whether walking through Blue Hill galleries, enjoying the spectacular home gardens or gazing at the water from that gracious porch, I enjoyed it all. So private, yet so convenient. Melinda and Jean-Paul were attentive to my needs, referred me to places throughout the area I might not have discovered, and were committed to my comfort. This was a stand-out vacation I hope to enjoy again and again.

A Little Slice of Heaven

This is likely the most gorgeous home in all of Blue Hill. You would never know it is on Main Street while you are enjoying the lovely yard and ocean front. The house is beautifully decorated and the kitchen has everything a chef could want.
