My husband and I have had the distinct pleasure of vacationing at the beautiful Shore Acres Inne at Lamoine Beach on several occasions. The ambiance is quaint, comfortable and loaded with charm. It's locaton allows many alternatives for the scenic outdoors. Arcadia National Park is our favorite (hiking, scenic views everywhere) and don't miss popovers at the Jordan Pond Cafe!
CW and Marcia are the "host and hostess with the mostest." They did everything to be sure we were comfortable and helped us plan our days. Shore Acres Inne is a wonderful place to stay for a family or a group of good friends. We highly recommend this very relaxing accommodation that we thouroughly enjoyed. Hope to return soon!
This was our second time staying in this home (the first was 3 years ago), and we absolutely love it! My in-laws live nearby and this home provided the perfect place for us all to gather. We stayed for a week and walked the short distance to the beach several times each day. I saw my very first moon-rise and it was amazing! Each morning you would find us on the large front porch, sitting in our rockers, drinking coffee. We made friends with chipmunks (we don't have them in Florida, so this was a treat!) and red squirrels, alike! The grounds of the home are absolutely beautiful. I can't tell you how many pictures I took of the beautiful flowers, foliage, Adirondack chairs on the lawn, rustic shed, fire-pit, etc. Just the perfect backdrop! Couldn't ask for a better setting. The house, itself, is historic and accommodated a large group of us as the preferred gathering place for fun (Six of us actually stayed there, but many more gathered there). One night had the adults by the fire-pit, roasting marshmallows, and the kids inside playing board games! Everyone was happy! The owner made sure that the house had books, board games, and lawn games to keep everyone occupied. Not once, during the entire week, did anyone feel the need to turn on the television...what a change from life at home! When we needed to contact the owner with any questions, he responded quickly. This is the perfect Maine house and property and you will enjoy it immensely!
My husband and I stayed here with our four kids, ages 4 through 11. We are so sad to be home already. The home is charming inside and out with a real old time feel. Everything is kept clean and there is anything and everything you can imagine inside. Lobster pots, glass coffee percolator, lawn toys for the kids, beach chairs, a fire pit, and a short stroll to the ocean. We will be hard pressed to beat this location for our next vacation so we may just have to come back! Thanks C.W. for the Model T ride and your recommendation on where to buy lobster.
Our family of seven just returned from our magical week in Maine, staying at beautiful Shore Acres. The location of the home was ideal for us - close enough to Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park/Ellsworth to make several trips, but far enough away to avoid the crowds of tourists. A short walk down the road to Frenchman's Bay for a beautiful sea view added to the ambiance. It was also a great launching off point to tour the rest of the coast of Maine. The home itself is charming and gave us a taste of history for the week. It fit our family very comfortably. The younger boys really loved the large back yard with tree swing and sand box with toys. One of the best things about our stay was having the chance to get to know the owners. They were simply lovely hosts and made us feel very welcome...even with our little boys running over to visit them frequently during the week! They told us interesting facts about the area, let us take a ride in their Model T Ford and enriched our stay in Maine. We are so grateful that we chose Shore Acres to be our "home" for the week.
Lamoine is a wonderful and very quiet part of Maine, away from the crowds in Bar Harbor but still only 40 minutes from Acadia.
The owners were very attentive and CW took time to ensure our needs were met despite not feeling 100% that week.
While the house could use a fresh coat of paint, it is very large and very comfortable. It offers a lot of great spots to read or play board games as well as an enormous yard with a fire ring that we took full advantage of.
We really enjoyed our stay at Historic Shore Acres.
This was our first trip to Maine and we found Shore Acres to be a great home with a lot of character. We had plenty of room both inside and out to relax after a busy day of site seeing. The home is clean and the owners are great to work with.
Shore Acres is in a great location to explore Acadia. We would highly recommend Acadia, Bar Harbor (and Lulu's Lobster Boat Tour), Schoodic Point, Penobscot Narrows Observatory Bridge and Fort Knox.
We would recommend Shore Acres to anyone who wants to have a unique experience in a historic home with all the amenities you would need.
There is a 'General Store' only a few miles away. Ellsworth is about 10 miles from the property. There are grocery stores, shopping malls, banks, an assortment of nationally known restaurants, as well as excellent local eateries and local specialty and large chain stores as well. Bar Harbor is approximately a 20 mile drive and Bangor is about 37 miles..
ENJOY A RIDE IN A VINTAGE MODEL T FORD DURING YOUR STAY, JUST FOR THE ASKING!
