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.
If you are considering this place for a relaxing vacation, just go ahead and book this place now. We had an amazing stay here with our extended family. We had never been to Maine, and this was the perfect place for everyone. The kids loved the kayaks, canoe, and basketball hoop. The adults loved the gorgeous property/views and nearby lobster shack. It's about 50 minutes to Acadia National Park, and we went 3 times during the week. The best part was the super-accommodating owner, who truly wants everything to be perfect for your vacation. We have rented many large homes for our family, and this was definitely the most welcoming reception we've had. It was refreshing to have plenty of high-quality kitchen utensils, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. The kitchen was better stocked than any other we've seen, and the owner truly wants you to call with any issues during your stay. Meticulously maintained.
From the moment we turned into the driveway we knew we had arrived in paradise!!! Within moments of our arrival the owner Michael arrived to brief us on the workings of the house. He truly is someone who takes great pride in his home and made us feel so welcome and honestly wanted us to use the house and all it had to offer. The grounds are so beautiful and tranquil. The kitchen is fully stocked with every possible appliance from lobster crackers to a nutrabullet machine. The entire house is immaculate, luxurious bedding, towels and furnishings. The view from the large glass windows throughout the house was spectacular. We had four grandchildren with us we are a family of 10 and the children couldn't eat fast enough in the morning so they could be outside searching for sea creatures, sea glass and shells. We rode the canoe, kayaks, our bikes as well as the ones provided by the house. Eating out on the deck was so enjoyable and the quiet and tranquility of this home is memorable. We used the fire pit for s'mores, relaxed in the hot tub and napped occasionally on the lounge chairs. We visited Acadia Park four of our days, hiked, biked, ate lunch at Jordan Pond, carriage ride, Sand Beach, Cadillac Mountain and still wish we had more days there. We also, went out on a boat ride and visited the town of Bar Harbor and took in the lumberjack show. Our last day in Maine we all looked at each other and no one wanted to leave Michael's house. So we spent the day there doing all the things we enjoy to do it was the perfect ending to a most memorable trip. We all felt sad on Saturday morning that we had to leave and we all look forward to returning again. We can't thank Michael enough for sharing this beautiful piece of heaven with us. May I also add that having Perry's Lobster Shack on the same road as the house is an extra bonus.
Our first trip to Maine and this house alone would make us come back! The view was awesome and it had everything and I mean everything!! There were three families all together and each of us had our own space. The kids enjoyed finding sea life along the coast for hours! Acadia and Bar Harbor are about 40 minutes away. The best little secret we found was the Lobster shack right on the road leading to the house. Hands down the best lobster rolls around!!!
A huge thank you to the owner!! He wanted to make sure you enjoyed your time and if you needed anything he was a phone call away!
