We lived in this beautiful home for 10 years before moving to Portland, Maine because of our jobs. I won't sell the home because I LOVE the home and location. We have shared the home with over 40 happy renters over the last four years - just check out the great reviews.

Jon Fanburg purchased this house in 1998

True tranquility made us buy this house. Large rooms with high ceilings and big windows make you feel like you are part of nature. At night, you can see the stars from you bed. An added perk is being only 20 minutes from the hiking of Acadia National Park. But you don't even need to travel that far, as seals, osprey, and bald eagles hang out along the river's edge out back of the house.

LOBSTER - I LOVE IT. I use to park my boat out back at the property's moring and go check the traps each morning. For those without a boat, you can buy it fresh within 10minutes of the house (both cooked or live).

Your home is truly a gem! We had the most wonderful time. We vacation in various places throughout the U.S. and rent homes in each site, but your home is truly one of the top choices.

Beautiful and Peaceful.

This was a great place to spend a week with our children and grandchildren. The property is a beautiful and peaceful setting, with no other houses close enough to see or hear noise from. The house has a great open floor plan, with plenty of room for ten of us to sleep, without sleeping on sofas, as well as to spread out for indoor activities (not that we were indoors much of the time. There are only a few things that could be done to improve the experience: There are an adequate number of televisions, however, if you like to keep up with the local or national news, you are out of luck. This could be solved by subscribing to Direct TV, a dish for which is located at the house. A larger lobster pot, as well as burner, would be a welcome addition to groups as large as ours (10). The existing lobster pot is good for 3 lobsters max, and is not very effective if everyone wants to eat at one time. Linens are included, however, if you have a large group, you may want to bring a few extra towels. We found ourselves having to go out to buy towels, since there are not enough on site for 10 people.
Owner's Response: Glad that this renter found the property beautiful. The house doesn't have satellite or cable TV, but does have the television hooked up to the internet with a free movie subscription thrown in (Internet speed in rural Maine is not as speedy as inner cities). Great ideas to put more instructions about cooking lobster in the renter's guide for out of state renters, as our pot cooks 8-10 lobsters (unless they are 5 pounders). Unlike some rentals, linens and towels are included with renting this property. We had 13 high end towels and 3 beach towels out for this group of 10 people, but the renter may not have seen all the supplies yet, as he posted his review half way into his stay. We aim to please and welcome calls before, during, or following your stay and welcome calls that allow us to make the stay even better part way through !!!.

This place is amazing and absolutely wonderful! It is just a short distance to Mount Desert Isle with hiking, walking the beach, and breathtaking views, and, of course, there's shopping in Bar Harbor. At the end of the day I love to sit on the deck and watch the boats go lazily by, listening to the sounds of the river and the ocean. PERFECTION!

Beautiful home nestled on the Union river with a MILLION dollar view looking up and down. The home has everything you need in the kitchen and living quarters and there is plenty of room for multiple families or a large family. The house is close to Mount Desert Island and pretty much central to everything that is going on. We loved it and my family is already planning a return trip to stay here in the future!

Beautiful views in a great location!

We were 2 families of four making our first trip to Maine. We chose this house due to it's size and location. We had plenty of room to spread out, and, as advertised, the views of the river and the convenient location made it a great place for us to enjoy Bar Harbor and Acadia! The owner was wonderful to deal with and very helpful. We had everything we could possibly need, and the descriptions in the listing were accurate, but two things we didn't realize, which would have been helpful to know, were: 1) The upstairs master bedroom with the only king bed is actually a loft (open to the living area below). The adults in our group wanted privacy and quiet, so two children ended up getting the master bedroom! 2) The bedroom with the futon did not have a door, so that was another sleeping area without privacy. Overall, this home, although a bit dated, was a lovely and enjoyable place to stay!

Owner's Response: This newer home for New England was built in 1997 and was designed with a modern floor plan by a Seattle company called Lindal Cedar Homes, hence the very open and airy feel. As the online photos show, there are windows in every room and one photo even shows the openness to the master bedroom upstairs. Few rooms have shades (2 bedrooms), but the only neighbors around are the people that you bring with you, as 5 acres of privacy is a bonus and luxury along the coastline. The fifth bedroom with the futon does not have a door and could double over as a study, hence the reason why the home is best suited for 8-10 people despite the very large space. A great vacation from city living and a spot where you can see the stars from your bed at night. We have had guests look at multiple properties in the area and chose this one because of the high quality and value of what they are renting.
