Great vacation spot
This property was great for my extended family.
The house: Two bedrooms on each of three floors meant we had plenty of space to spread out and not feel like we were on top of each other. The living area is large with plenty of seating and great views out over the bay; note that the living room furniture has been updated since the pictures posted here. The kitchen is updated as well and has everything you need for the week. Two sets of washers and dryers were nice to have.
The property: One reason we rented this house was the waterfront location. In early August, the water was warm enough for swimming and much warmer than the ocean nearby given its location on the bay. The kids enjoyed swimming every day. There were three kayaks and a canoe that came with the property, making excursions easy. The deck has great views and the hot tub was a nice addition as the evenings cooled down. The location is quite secluded--you are six miles down Newbury Neck Road. That means it's a 20-25 minute drive to Blue Hill or Ellsworth and a 45 minute drive to Bar Harbor, so just take that into account in terms of activities. But there was still plenty nearby to occupy us for the week and we spent plenty of time at the house since there are so many amenities there.
Overall, a great stay and the owner couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating.
Private, clean, fully stocked vacation rental
We found the house fully equipped with everything we needed, nice bath towels, beach towels, linens all first rate. The property is beautiful and although we hiked often in Acadia National Park, we were quite content staying at the house, enjoying the water, view, fire pit and Jacuzzi. Fully expect to rent again in the future! Thanks Mike!
Idyllic, private, relaxing retreat.
4 adults and 2 babies stayed comfortably. Could have shared with one more family. Bit of a drive (20+ min) to closest grocery store. Lobster shack on same street was amazing! Easy distance to Bar Harbor, Acadia. Beds very comfortable. Views amazing. Michael very attentive and helpful. We will definitely be back!
Fantastic vacation week!!!!
This vacation home was absolutely perfect for our 3 family getaway, which included a wide variety of ages from toddlers to grandparents .
It was ideally layed out as each family had plenty of alone space and together space.
The grounds were beautifully landscaped and sloped gracefully down to the waters edge where the kids spent hours searching for sea glass, heart shaped rocks etc.
We used the provided kayaks and canoe extensively marveling at the beauty of Maine's coastline.
Thank you Michael for a fantastic week !
The house is even better than the pictures! The property was breathtaking and the landscaping was just beautiful. The owner (Mike) was there to greet us and was more than accommodating. HIs love and pride in his home is evident in every aspect of the house. This was the fifth year we have rented a vacation home and all of the others pale in comparison. The jacuzzi, kayaks, BBQ and canoe, like everything else were first rate. It was a great week and a beautiful memoryfor our family.
Very peaceful. Both the home and outside grounds are perfectly maintained. Very large side yard with full shoreline that made for easy access to the bay with wonderful views. We used the provided kayaks and canoe extensively. Loved the basketball hoop and pool table. Perry's Lobster Shack just up the road provides all the lobster and steamers you could ever want.
It's about an hour drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park so plan your day trips accordingly. We did everything from hiking to fishing to whale watching (oh yeah, eating). Ellsworth is about 20 minutes away and has all the necessities with very nice restaurants as well.
Michael will greet you and tell you everything about the house and the area. He asked us to call him about anything we needed which we never had to do. He really wants you to enjoy your stay.
Home is within 30 miles of Acadia National Park, one of the most visited national parks in America. Kayaking from the front of the property with two kayaks provided and additional kayaks available to rent close by. Mountain climbing, hiking, canoeing and the shopping of Bar Harbor and the attractions of Mount Desert Island are just across the bay. Visitors may also choose to go south down the Coast and visit the popular coastal villages dotting the Blue Hill Peninsula and the Camden area.
