Trenton and Ellsworth attractions: Trenton, Maine has much to offer away from Bar Harbor.

Just off the runway there are sight-seeing flights available to view Bar Harbor from the sky and for the dare devil in you there are Glider rides available as well. Trenton also has many lobster pounds to get the 'fresh catch of the day' to take home and cook yourself or just sit at a picnic table and eat right there, they'll cook it up for you! There is also a local IGA grocery store across from the airport for your shopping convenience. Trenton also has a putt-putt golf course and a driving range available. Ellsworth has a Wal-Mart store and the famous L.L. Bean Outlet as well as a movie theater. Many churches are found throughout the area and please don't hesitate to pop into a church supper you might find around town......visitors are always welcome!

Additional information about Majestic Point: This home is still owned by mother who currently resides in an assisted living home in Bar Harbor. My parents spent over 22 summers here. Most of the oil paintings you'll see were done by my father. I'm sure you will take good care of their home. It holds many special memories for our entire family.

There is a croquet set in the basement you are welcome to set up on the lawn. There are games and cookbooks in the dining room cabinet. The beach is filled with shells and beautiful rocks, bring a bucket to collect some special souvenirs! Anything you find in the house, you are welcome to use. Just leave things where they were for our next guests. I hope you will sign the guestbook on the kitchen table and give us any feedback that you think would make this an even better vacation spot so you will return each year to make your own special memories on Majestic Point! Thank you!

I am currently living in Kentucky, however I am a Maine native. I grew up in Brewer and have spent every summer in Bar Harbor for as long as I can remember. A lot of my relatives are still living in the Bar Harbor area.

Mary Neville purchased this house in 1980

This property was purchased by my parents and they built this cottage as their retirement home over 27 years ago. It has served them well as a place for family and friends to gather throughout their golden years. It is a very sentimental place beloved by their children and grandchildren. A lot of wonderful memories were made here.

You can view sunrises from one side of the house and magnificent sunsets from the other end of the house. A lot of wildlife can be seen on land,sea and in the sky from the windows in the house as well as walking around outside.

Hi Mary,

We had an awesome week at the house. The weather was very hot (80's-90's) but the windows and fans made a great difference and maximized the cooling breezes from 3 the sides. We were very comfortable and did not want for anything. The location was perfect for spectacular views, lobster pounds and getting about easily. Morton's Moo and Blueberry Hill in Ellsworth and MDI Ice cream in BH are must sees (we love our ice cream). We swam at Echo Lake. We were going to go to the Acadia Reparatory Theater one eve but we ran out of time.
It was easy for our family of 6 adults to spread out and have our space. I loved that we felt like we were in our own quiet little world away from everything but minutes away from anything we needed. The paintings are beautiful but my personal favorite was the one of Otter Cliffs. We became avid tide watchers too.
It was nice having both the living room and the sun room with 2 tv's for gathering and options. The basement was a nice cool retreat sometimes too. We played board games several evenings. We never had an issue with running out of hot water or low water pressure. It was better than home actually. The pictures don't do justice to the property.
Thank you for everything. You were super easy to work with.
We made some great memories this week!

The view alone is worth it. The house worked perfectly for us. It's close to everything, yet secluded and private. Saw a bald eagle sitting on the back lawn, sea otters and/or seals swimming by. Sitting outside and stargazing was tranquil! Everyone in our family loved it, from the grandparents to the almost 2 year old. Galyn's in Bar Harbor was the best burger I've ever had, and for the kids, I recommend the Oceanarium which minutes away, and in Acadia, Ship Harbor Trail which lead to a rocky giant tide pool filled with sea stars, snails, urchins, and even a lobster. The worst thing I can say about Majestic Point was that we couldn't find a wine bottle opener;so , yeah, everything was great!

A fantastic location, gorgeous views, and lots of room, both inside and out. Plenty of privacy available, as well many spaces for family and friends to gather for conversation, games and meals. Tastefully decorated, clean, well maintained. Acadia National Park is only minutes away. An ideal spot for amateur photographers. The pictures posted don't do it justice. The owner is very accomodating and easy to work with.

Our stay here was unforgettable

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful place with us. 2 families (one of 4 + one of 6) enjoyed the waterfront and all the wildlife it brings. The tides were spectacular. Walking in low tide (right off the house) we found starfish, crabs, lots of snails, anemoneas, sandollars, sea urchines and even saw seals. Sea Kayaking is a must, the Maine landscape is simply stunning. It's sad to be leaving, but our stay here was unforgettable. Thank you!

Our multi-generation family had a fantastic vacation here at Majestic Point. The beauty that surrounds this home is beyond description. The eagle, seal, and porpoise sightings were a special gift, too.

We had a terrific vacation. What a special spot! We awakened to the birds each morning and capped off fun-filled days with spectacular sunsets and nightime stargazing. Many thanks to Mary Neville for making it all possible.
