My wife Ashlee & I have recently purchased Chambers Oceanfront Cottages from Don & Marilyn Chambers who built their reputable cottage rental business from scratch, 40 years ago. Ashlee and I have been involved with all aspects of the property for several years, and we are very excited for the 2013 season. This is where we grew up, and we are very proud to continue in Don & Marilyns footsteps, delivering quality, cleanliness, and hospitality. They are my grandparents, and we are putting forth our best efforts to maintain the highest of standards and service which they have provided for over 40 years.
This property is very unique due to the fact it is a private, well appointed cottage within feet from the Ocean. You will not find cottages this close to deep water ocean frontage anywhere on the Island which are as nicely appointed as Chambers Cottages. Views across Somes Sound at Acadia National Park property are rich in lush foliage with rolling mountains, and unforgettable sunrise / sunsets. Granite fire place, and a large patio. We go the extra step to insure you have all the comforts of home.... from pot holders, to spices, cookware, soap, detergent & a lobster kettle.
Deep Water Dock & Mooring for your boat, fishing from the dock, row boat, purchasing lobsters from our dock at the cheapest prices on the island. Listen to the loons at sunset, and watch the busy lobsterman haul their traps from your patio each morning.
