The Post & Beam Home is the picture perfect vacation home in the ideal location. We've rented this house four times over the past 15 years, and each time we've had an absolutely delightful vacation. The home is beautiful, spacious, and comfortable, and the design is exactly what you'd hope for in a Maine waterfront home, with a soaring cathedral ceiling, exposed natural beams, and gorgeous views of the water. The layout is excellent, with some really nice touches -- e.g., half of the porch is enclosed, which means you can enjoy the morning fog without the chill; and there's a study (with printer) in the second floor loft, in case you have to do a bit of work on vacation. The owner is very responsive and has done a terrific job of keeping the home in tip-top shape. The owner retains an excellent cleaning crew -- the home has always been spotless when we arrive. The bedrooms have a lot of storage space, with lots of drawers and closet space, which is nice for a week-long stay. Also, the owner is very generous with the things that make a stay more comfortable, like a dozen extra towels in each bathroom, plenty of extra toilet paper, a fresh roll of paper towels in the kitchen, etc. -- simple conveniences that make a difference. The home is a 12 minute drive to the nearest entrance to Acadia National Park, where there's amazing biking and hiking, and maybe another 5 minutes or so into Bar Harbor for shopping and dining. Or you can pick up the LL Bean bus at the end of the street, about a quarter mile walk from the end of the driveway; the bus makes stops just about anywhere you'd want to go. The rental cost isn't cheap, but each time we've stayed here the vacation has been great and memorable. Beautiful home, great waterfront setting, perfect architecture for the location, easy access to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, and a very responsive owner. There's a reason we keep coming back.
