We had a great Labor Day escape and spent a most enjoyable week at this lovely, clean and well equipped cottage. It is close to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park which we love to visit. We will definitely be back.

Perfect getaway, great location, very cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay at the Hemingway's lovely cottage. The cottage is clean and well-kept, and filled with little touches of home. The yard is very big and has nice Adirondak chairs on the lawn and some other chairs on the deck. There is also a grill on the deck that we used to cook out. The beds are comfortable. The cottage is tucked away from the road, so you don't hear traffic driving by. You can even see the ocean down the hill while sitting in the yard.

There is a very nice quiet beach that is just a 5 minute walk down the road from the cabin. There are grills there, so we spent two nights grilling on the beach, which never had more than 5 other people on it. It felt like a private beach!

Acadia is a 30 minute drive away, Ellsworth is about 15 minutes and Schoodic Point is about 45. If you want to see something unique, Chainsaw Sawyer was the first chainsaw artist in the USA, and he has a live show just 10 minutes up the road. The Hemingway's place put us in a very good location to see a lot of things, then get some distance from the park. There can be lots of people at a lot of places in Bar Harbor and Acadia, so it was very nice to retreat from it all at such a private, peaceful location each night.

The Hemingways themselves are very lovely people. They greeted us when we arrived and sent information before we came. If I had questions, they were full of information and happy to answer. I highly recommend staying here. It was a very good experience. Thank you very much!

Super cottage with wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Very cute cottage in a perfect location. A short walk to the beach, and a quick drive to Ellsworth & Acadia National Park. We loved our stay and the owners couldn't be nicer! Already planning when to return next year!

The kids loved it!

  • 4 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Shore Acres and will not be our last I am sure. The hosts are the best and the cottage/property is just the right distance from all of the points of interest.

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the cottage. We found that the cottage was central to Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, Winter Harbor, Bangor, and Cranberry Island. It was no more than 1 hour to get to any of these areas. The owners joined us for dinner and gave us a wonderful memorable ride in their 1926 Model T. We walked about 5 minutes to watch the sun rise at Lamoine Beach. The cottage was very clean and well maintained and just as advertised. I would recommend to anyone to stay and we would love to come back.
