Shore Acres Cottage is located between Ellsworth and Bar Harbor, nestled on the edge of pristine Acadia National Park. The beach and picnic area is an enjoyable three-minute walk from the cottage along a wooded country road. The state park, with boat dock and launching area, is only one half mile north of the cottage.
The cottage is fully insulated and has a monitor furnace and an electric hot water heater for your year-round comfort. The cottage is supplied with linens, blankets and beach chairs. There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed; the other has twin-size bunks. HERE IS WHERE MEMORIES OF YOUR VACATION WILL LAST A LIFETIME! Be sure to ask for a ride in one of our Model T Fords. And last but not least, Blunt's Pond, a retired fresh water reservoir, is currently a town fresh water beach only two miles away, see picture, where a refreshing swim, picnic, or just relaxing, may be enjoyed.

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.
The location, property, and cottage were better than expected. We were looking for a private rental, as opposed to a row of rental properties.The owners were very nice and accessible, and made us feel at home. We also chose the cottage for the location, as it was central to where we wanted to spend our time. The beach was a 2 minute walk and the state park was less than 2 miles. We were able to enjoy both of them after returning from a day of activities. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are close enough to enable us to spend several days exploring, hiking, and kayaking. We also took a day trip to Portland, and a short trip to Bangor for sight seeing. The cottage was the perfect size for me and my 2 teenagers. It was neat, clean, and well maintained. I would rent this cottage again, especially from the same owners, and would recommend the same to friends and relatives. We had a wonderful trip....I hope to be able to return sometime soon!
I took my 3 grandchildren ages 4, 6, & 12 with me to stay at this cottage. We had a wonderful time. I found that everything they said in the write up to be true. It was fully stocked and very welcoming. I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a quiet place to stay but close to Acadia and Bar Harbor. The kids had a wonderful time at the beach that is in walking distance and playing in the yard. Again we could not have picked a better place to stay. Thank you for sharing your cottage with us!
We absolutely love visiting this cozy cottage. The property is beautifully maintained inside and out. The area is perfectly located on a peaceful street just a short walk away from Lamoine Beach. We sit outside everyday and enjoy the tranquil surroundings. We also took walks daily to the nearby state park. We always went for evening strolls on the beach taking time to collect rocks and take in the amazing view! The beach is pristine and we often had it to ourselves. The cottage is clean, well maintained and quaint. The owners are delightful people and we look forward to seeing them each year. We went to Acadia National Park almost everyday of our week-long stay. We hiked, went on the auto road, ate Pop-Overs at Jordan's Pond, mountain biked the carriage roads, visited Cadillac Mountain, visited sandy beach , and Thunder Hole. There are visitors stations that have lots of information on what to do during your stay. We also love Bar Harbor! We have taken excursions to islands(like Baker's Island), kayaked in the sea, shopped in amazing shops, eaten at delicious restaurants, ice cream shops and bakeries. We have also visited local antique dealers, done wine tasting, and visited a brewery. The owners gave us lots of suggestions for fun and have more suggestions for adventures each year. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative. I can't wait to go back!
This place is great nice quiet area close to beach can walk there it is very clean and the owners are very very nice people I've been coming back for years just love it
