Wonderful, private, quiet retreat.
We had a terrific, restful break from our over-programmed lives. Cathy's cabin is very private and quiet, steps from the ocean, and very comfortable. We sat and read on the deck each morning, listening to the songbirds and watching the deer (and a porcupine) walk along, next to the water. We watched a Star Wars marathon, hiked in Acadia (30 minutes away), and basically just recharged. A perfect place to unwind. Highly recommended!
This place is close to everything and a pleasure in itself
The house and premises are exactly as described. Kitchen is very well equipped, living-room is light and airy and has a lot of extras Beautiful views from the deck, hammock between the pines, steps to the granite ledges along water. It is as close to nature as it gets- we saw deer and turkeys in the woods near the house almost daily, and found plenty of chanterelles. Yet the main stores of Ellsworth are 10 min away, plus it is actually located closer to Acadia than Ellsworth, with a shortcut via local roads.
If you want to brave swimming in the tidal cove, the best time is right after the full tide, when water is at its cleanest. If you prefer lakes and/or want a rest from Acadian crowds, try Schoodic beach 20-25 min away. A short path leads from the parking lot to a gorgeous beach on a secluded Donnell pond. From there a trail goes to climb Schoodic mountain with fantastic 360-degree views from the summit. Can look up details on mainetrailfinder website.
One more thing to add: during our stay, I had to contact the owners on two occasions, and both times received from Cathy a prompt and helpful response.
In short, great house, surroundings and location.. Thanks, Cathy and Rick!

Literally Home Away
Clean, restful, uncluttered. Loved the exposed beams/architecture of the building. Loved sitting on the decks, as weather permitted. Took long strolls down Great Ledge Road, thereby meeting several pleasant neighbors who stopped to say hello. Nicely appointed kitchen and cooking.
It was perfect!
Everything was exactly as described. The house was beautiful & it’s so nice they supply everything. The scenery was gorgeous & very quiet. It’s so cool it’s along a tidal cove. It was also so nice they had some blueberry jam, cookies & popcorn there to welcome us. What a personal touch. And what an awesome deck. Thank you so much Cathy & Rick for sharing your beautiful home! Tim & Streph Willow Street, PA
Wonderful vacation spot
The house was lovely and well equipped with everything we needed. We had a great stay and enjoyed relaxing on the deck and looking out over the water.
The home is located in Lamoine which is approximately twenty miles from Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, and six miles from the restaurants and shops of Ellsworth.
