Lovely home with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5
Our trip to Maine was one of the best vacations we have taken, hands down. This rental property was a big reason why! We found the house perfect for our family (only three of us) and our dog. The views of the water are simply amazing. It never looked the same twice, the light or tides would change and we would be drawn to just be by the water. Our teenager and dog explored every nook and cranny of the rocky beach. There is so much to do and see, near the home and a short drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia.

Now the house itself is fantastic. It is comfortable and cozy. The pictures do not do it justice. The windows are wonderful, the kitchen has everything you need if you want to cook in, and there are so many little things that were a nice touch. The property was clean and we did have an issue with the hot water that was repaired immediately. The outside landscaping was lovely.

We loved the nearby community, Thurstons for lobster and we loved Beech Hill Farm, where we found a variety of local, organic and sustainable produce!

Bar Harbor is a drive but the quiet nature of the location of this house is worth it. And there are several trails and activities that are closer, just check out Acadia's trail maps. If your looking for that Maine experience that you think you only read about in books, check this home out! Loved it!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5
When you walk in the door, the first thing you see is the amazing view from the huge picture window and you know you are going to have a great time. We stayed for a week with our two sons, then 3 and 9 months. It was great for us to not have to worry about stairs in the house and the deck was perfect for sitting outside and having some wine after the kids were in bed. Just bring your bug spray!

The dining area makes you feel like you are in a cabin in the woods, then you walk into the living room and you see that beautiful water. The master bedroom has a nice view of the bay as well. The bath in the master bath is huge...my son thought it was almost a swimming pool :)

The house is very secluded so you are driving to everything, but it's also wonderfully quiet. We loved walking along the rocks and looking at the tidepools. The only bad part about having the water right there is that you want to dive in but it's really not a spot for swimming. We also loved watching the lobster boats through the binoculard the owners provided.

With two kids, we weren't much for going out to dinner so we did a lot of cooking. The kitchen has everything you need, and the open floorplan is great for keeping
an eye on the family while preparing food.

The owners were there, in another house on the property behind this one, when we stayed. They were very nice and helpful, but not imposing at all.

Two things to note--there is only one shower. The master bath has a huge tub but no shower. Second, the address that the realtor gave us came up as someplace else on Google. We noticed it was wrong by the pictures Google was showing. I think it was a Google issue, but I'm glad we realized and didn't end up at the wrong house!

We loved our stay here. If we were going to Maine for vacation again, we would absolutely stay here. My son told us the other day, "I plan on going back there." It definitely made an impression!!
