Scott & Daria have been visiting the Bar Harbor area for many years and fell in the love with the area. They purchased Western Bay Shores at the beginning of 2012, updating and renovating for the summer rental season. They enjoy time here in the off-seasons as well. Back in Philadelphia, Scott is known for his award-winning beer, while Daria works in marketing at a technology company.

Scott Morrison purchased this house in 2012

When Scott & Daria bought Western Bay Shores, the former owners provided a comprehensive 'book' of everything about the house - ending their description with 'It's a special place.' This statement couldn't be more true … you'll find relaxation and enjoyment here at this home - it truly is a special place and we are happy that we can have our guests enjoy this slice of Maine as much as we do.

A SLICE OF PARADISE ON BEAUTIFUL WESTERN BAY!

  • 5 of 5
Wow, what a gorgeous home! I promise, you will not be disappointed here! Scott and his wife have maintained this home beautifully. It is extremely clean and well kept. The home had two decks overlooking the bay, with incredible views of the ocean from the dining room, living room, bedrooms, etc., a great kitchen with all cookware, utensils, and a lobster pot to boot! It is a very comfortable, beautiful home with exposed wood beams and knotted pine walls – an elegant, yet rustic Maine feel enveloped each room in the entire home. And I can't emphasize enough how gorgeous the views are here! Stunning sunrises were enjoyed right from our deck, while the backdrop of Acadia's mountains framed the scene. Just breathtaking! The starry skies at night took our breath away from our private stretch of beach. Walks along the beach during low tide offered us lots to explore in the tidal pools. Kayaking right from shore was incredible! We saw many harbor seals frolicking as we paddled and even met a lobster fisherman hauling in his traps. The awe-inspiring natural beauty of Western Bay and Mount Desert Island was at our fingertips all week, and it was truly tough to leave. Just a peaceful slice of heaven...that's the best way I can describe our experience here!

BEST HOME EVER

  • 5 of 5
My wife, myself, and our Jack Russell Terrier Rocky recently had the pleasure of renting this beautiful home. I cannot say enough nice things about this home. No picture or description can fully describe just how nice it is. We have rented homes in Maine, The Outer Banks, NC and St John USVI. We've rented some really nice homes and for the very first time we can honestly say we would love to come back to this home. The yard was absolutely great for our dog to run around in. Being able to walk on the beach was another great feature. Views from the decks were better than we could have imagined. The home was clean, comfortable, spacious, and equipped with everything we could have wanted. The location was another plus. close to all that Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor have to offer, yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor. We enjoyed cooking lobsters(purchased at Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound) at home and just sitting on the deck after a long day of hiking Acadia. We also enjoyed a couple of great lobster meals at Lunt's just 3.5 miles down the road(fantastic lobster rolls, lobster stew, and blueberry pie). Scott and Daria were so friendly and they made the entire renting process so easy. My wife, Rocky, and I cannot wait until we have the opportunity to return to this wonderful vacation home again.

PERFECT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house, perfectly clean, nice bed linens, comfortable furniture - overall a great place to relax. perfectly close to all the hikes we wanted to do in acadia and still close enough to go out to dinner and drinks in Bar Harbor some nights. Perfect size for our family of six plus our dog and to have our friends over (family of 5) for dinner who stayed down the road! We had a fourth of july beach party with a fire and fireworks (we could even see the Bar Harbor fireworks over cadillac mountain in the distance -- we loved being at the house even more as we watched all the cars descend the mountain after the show!!). Sitting on the beach during the day and Star gazing over the bay at night was beautiful!! a gorgeous house in a beautiful location with views that cant be beat! we had an awesome week!

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Upon arrival we were thrilled and amazed with the view from the house. Before we even entered the house, we spent about 20 minutes outside in the fenced in yard just enjoying the view of the water and all of natures bounty right under our noses. Once inside the house, we were in awe of the layout of the house and it's organic nature. Once we had fun checking out the entire house, we realized how thoughtful the owners were of their tenants as we were in need of nothing. There were plenty of fans to accomodate every room and they even thought of placing nightlights everywhere, just to mention a few things. The home was beautiful and very comfortable. The location of the home was perfect as well, as we were just about 20 minutes from WalMart (for our grocery shopping) and maybe just a little further to Bar Harbor for dining and memorabilia shopping. We had a wonderful vacation thanks to Scott and Daria Morrison.

PERFECT PLACE FOR OUR STAY IN MAINE

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this house was PERFECT for us!!! We traveled with 3 children ages 9,8 and 6 and two grandparents for our first trip to Maine. The kids LOVED having their own space on the 3rd floor to watch TV and hang out. We all enjoyed the amazing beach with views in the Acadia and hours of fun looking for little creatures at low tide. It was only a 15-20 minute drive into Bar Harbor/Acadia, which allowed us to plan hikes in the park every day, eat and dine and Bar Harbor, and still get back to the house to enjoy our space. The fenced -in backyard was an added bonus too! We used the space to play frisbee and kickball with the kids during our down time. The owners were wonderful as well -- very accommodating and informative. We will certainly plan to go back to this same house in a few years.

ABSOLUTE TREASURE!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing experience - Scott and Daria were fantastic - their home belongs in a magazine - just perfect. Communications were always answered promptly and the phone conversations felt like I was talking to a lifelong friend. The amenities were plentiful, from the wonderful bed linens and towels to the spices in the kitchen. They have thought of everything - even bug spray!! We spent our days in Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park and returned home to this welcoming space. Our evenings were pretty much down on the private beach where we would never see the same thing twice. Our children loved staying in the 3rd floor bedroom where there is a skylight - it was almost like a tree house to them - plus there was a room across the hall with a tv just for them, along with numerous games! The amount of space was perfect - we all had plenty of room to spread out, hang out together, or retreat to the rooms if we needed some down time. We can't say enough to convey what a great experience we had.

Western Bay Shores is a lovely 4-bedroom home situated on 1.5 acres with 200' of private shore on Western Bay in Trenton.

Centrally located halfway between Ellsworth and the town of Bar Harbor and less than 20 minutes from Acadia National Park, and the Hulls Cove Visitor's center. Hike and bike or enjoy the scenic Loop Road en route to Jordan Pond, Sand Beach and Thunder Hole.

The cottage features 200' of private shore - sunbathe, beachcomb, or rent a kayak or canoe. Two decks for outdoor dining and relaxing. Fenced-in yard is great for the kids and your small family dog to run around too!

Four bedrooms including 1 King Master BR with sitting area and own bath, 1 Queen, 1 bedroom with 2 full beds on the 3rd floor, and 1 bedroom with 2 twins on the first floor. First floor also features living and dining rooms, kitchen and 1/2 bath.

Washer/dryer, HDTVs, Cable TV, and WIFI throughout. Rainy day? No problem - choose Wii, enjoy a movie or play a board game. Like to cook? Stocked kitchen provides you the basics, cookware and utensils. BBQ Gas Grill and grill utensils, too.

The town of Ellsworth is just 15 minutes up the road with quaint shops, and restaurants. Pick up fresh, local produce at the Ellsworth Farmer's Market or visit the historic Woodlawn Museum.

Mount Desert Island and Bar Harbor (11 miles) feature numerous shops, movie theater and dining (favorites by far are Cafe This Way and McKays or head to Town Hill Bistro in Town Hill). Go for a boat ride and enjoy the fresh ocean air.

Attractions: Whether you have kids or not, check out Diver Ed, who launches daily excursions from the College of the Atlantic (20 minutes). It's a fantastic, must do activity. Other favorites include Pirates Cove Adventure Miniature Golf and Abbe Museum.

After your day of hiking Cadillac Mountain, biking the carriage roads or strolling through Bar Harbor, come home to Western Bay Shores - cook up your fresh lobsters by the sounds of the bay, have a campfire on the beach and relax!
