When we saw this waterfront land our hearts went 'pitter-patter.' It was more wonderful than our wildest dreams, the most beautiful spot we had ever seen. We come here as often as we can to escape the pressures of life, relax, and collect ourselves. Here we appreciate the beautiful, the natural and the peaceful.
This environment is among the most dramatic in the world. The Acadia area is the most spectacular geography on the east coast, with magnificent scenes of nature at every turn that will take your breath away. Mother Nature has demonstrated her most impressive talent on this treasured area of the Maine Coast. After 17 years of vacationing in this area, we still have not explored all of the wonderful hikes and beautiful spots in the area.
We invite you to settle in to our authentic log home with views to Frenchmen's Bay and the Atlantic Ocean and experience the magic that is the most magnificent area of the spectacular Maine Coast.
WIFi Internet connection!
Full round, 8' diameter northern white cedar logs create an atmosphere of the best of the pioneer days. A window wall shows the spectacular view of Raccoon Cove out to Frenchmen's Bay. The great room is open to the dining area and kitchen. There is also a full bath next to the kitchen. The master bedroom with walk in closet, king-size bed and bath is off the great room. A 450 sq. ft. loft has an equally impressive view and can be used as a dormitory area. The lower walk-out level has three bedrooms : (#1) has a full size bed - (#2) has 2 twin beds - (#3) has a king size bed that can easily be split into 2 twin beds, if necessary. Two of the bedrooms have sliding glass doors and a full view of the water. A family room also has a slider with views of the water.

Sports & Adventure Activities
We stayed at the house in Oct 2007, and had a great week. We were 10 people, and enjoyed the close proximity to Acadia. We found so much to do on Acadia that we spent most of our time there. The sunrises and the tide changes viewed through the front windows was a highlight. We cooked and ate many meals in the modern and well equipped kitchen, and all the services we needed were in nearby Ellsworth. A very enjoyable and successful extended family vacation!
Excellent Vacation Home
Lovely home! Very spacious; great kitchen area. Netflix option, as well as DVD/VCR option downstairs. Multiple gathering areas inside the house (on all 3 floors). Multiple quiet and peaceful gathering areas outside the house, as well. Great location with easy access to local beaches, Bar Harbor and Acadia. 100% satisfied with this log cabin. Made for an unforgettable family vacation.
Having vacationed in Acadia for most of my life, I was a little skeptical of the distance of the house from the park entrance. However, over the years Bar Harbor has turned into a very touristy town, over run with cheesy motels and hotels that charge you an arm and a leg for mediocre accommodations. It's just too crowded, which is why I am beyond happy we found the log cabin. It reminds me of a time when you could find true peace and quiet on Frenchman's Bay (the large picture windows look out onto a tidal cove leading, as the crow flies, into Bar Harbor) On our visit we got all types of weather, from a misty foggy morning, to clear starry nights, to a bright orange and pink sunrise-- I wish I had brought a canvas to paint!!
While we enjoyed relaxing in the cozy great room, cooking, and BBQing, we found ourselves so busy with outdoor activities that we didn't have much time to sit and be lazy. We missed peak foliage by about 2 weeks, but I would come to the cabin in any season! It is truly a diamond in the rough! Thank you for
A Wonderful Escape
This house is in one of the most idyllic settings you can imagine. Our family was looking to escape the rat race for a few days and found this home to do the job perfectly! We loved the peace and quiet, and the views over the tidal cove were really wonderful, both at high tide looking out over the glistening water and at low tide watching clam diggers out on the mud flats. The four bedrooms plus loft accommodated us all quite well, and the large open great room enabled everyone to still be "hanging out" together -- even if some of us were cooking while others were reading or playing cards! We found the drive to Acadia to be easy and beautiful, but after two days of visiting the park, we decided we were actually quite content hanging out on our own little scenic property!
vacationer from Ohio
What a great place!!! We had a family reunion here, and everyone loved the place and had a great time. Lovely, quiet, scenic setting with easy access to Acadia Park and Bar Harbor. The house is AMAZING - the 4 bedrooms and the sleeping loft was a great fit for the extended family, and the Great Room and open kitchen made room for everyone to read, eat, check out the views (Eagles!), and watch movies as the mood struck us. This was a perfect vacation for lazy mornings, active afternoons, and cozy evenings for all ages. We will definitely be back!
Fun Cabin in a Great Area
We had a great time at the cabin. The property is a little out of the way, but is right on the water (it's a little inlet so it empties out for a few hours a day - cool to see the water coming and going). We spent hours exploring the area and Mt. Desert Island. Really one of the most beautiful places in the world.
The cabin slept all of us comfortably and we spent all of our time hanging out in the wide open living room / kitchen area, cooking, enjoying the views, and the great company.
Would definitely recommend.
Welcome to Raccoon Cove on Pasture Way! The house is just over 100 feet from the high water line, with a few birch and evergreen trees in the yard. There is a gentle slope down to the water in a natural landscape. You are welcome to bring your canoe or kayak to explore the shoreline, or they can be rented by the week just 15 minutes away. The private wooded and sunny lot is just under three acres with 310 feet of saltwater tidal water frontage on Raccoon Cove. This is a special home on the most picturesque property on the most beautiful coastline in the world.
Enjoy the proximity to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park while retreating to the peaceful seclusion of this waterfront home. Watch the tide come and go, the rustling of the wind in the trees, the songs of the birds and the sea gulls. Explore the shoreline on foot or in your kayak. Bring binoculars and keep an eye on Cadillac Mountain and Frenchman's Bay from the private waterfront.
