This lovely cottage home sits only a stone's throw from the ocean with a breathtaking ocean view from every room. While the private road across a blueberry field and then through woods to the cottage ensures a feeling of seclusion, the conveniences of the city of Ellsworth are only 10 minutes away. Both upstairs bedrooms have walkout balconies and share a half bath. A large bedroom and full bath are downstairs. An open floor plan encompasses the family room area and dining area with wall-to-wall windows allowing panoramic deep water views. Enjoy views of Acadia and Bar Harbor from the main deck. Lovely gravel beach and flat rocky ledges just outside your door. Marlboro beach is less than a mile away.
We can't express how fortunate we were in finding this charming cottage!! We are hesitant to let everyone know how perfect this cottage and location were as we want to keep it a secret to prevent it from being overbooked when we want to return! :) But, we have to be honest; it was absolutely perfect. The sound of the waves on the rocks just below, the large deck for lounging, the rustic feel of the accommodations and the convenience of being so close to 'civilization' when we needed it. The cottage was well stocked as far as the kitchen went and we cooked many meals at our temporary home which was fabulous. The hummingbirds were a joy to watch at the feeder and we saw an eagle chasing an osprey trying to snag its fish away. A few juvenile loons came by as well. We were able to hike in Acadia and even dragged ourselves out of bed at O-Dark-Thirty to catch the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain. We could go on and on about everything there is to do in the area!! And, on top of all of this, we were impressed by how organized the hosts were! There was excellent communication prior to our stay, a nice welcome sign and instruction manual for the cottage and great follow up afterward! We were so happy there that we were already sad to leave on our first day even though we still had the whole week ahead of us!!
If your looking for a place that you won't want to leave this is it. From the time you arrive you will be saying to yourself what a beautiful view. Out on the deck you are less than 10 feet away from the water at high tide. From each room in the cottage is views, views and more views. Quiet, comfortable, relaxing in and out pleasing to the eye. Our 4th visit and not our last. Tranquility and peace restored. One of a kind for sure. It's what Maine is all about!
It is our second time there and what a pleasure. The place is the quintessential coastal Maine cabin. Conveniently located and private, peaceful and just a real pleasure. I hope to come back for years to come.
My husband and I stayed at Lamoine Cottage for our honeymoon. It was exactly what we needed! Peace and quite with the ability to quickly make a trip to town or Acadia. The cottage was clean and fully stocked with cooking equipment, blankets, movies and firewood. The deck overlooking the ocean allowed a great spot for reading and eating. We even saw some sea lions in the evening! We are definitely interested in coming back someday!
This little place is a gem! We've returned to the Acadia area for our sixth time. This cottage is one of the best places we've stayed. We were lucky enough to witness alot of wildlife including: osprey, hummingbirds galore, seals (if you kayak up the river), and porpoises! The cottage is fully stocked and comfortable. If you're looking to get out and explore, this is the place. It is centrally located, close to many stores and also 30 minutes from Acadia National Park. If you're looking to relax, this is definitely a wonderful place. The atmosphere is serene, peaceful and relaxing. We highly recommend this lovely place. The owners are well-prepared and organized. The cottage has everything you need and a little extra...
"Cottage on the Rock" only hints at the beauty of this gem! This vacation home is a dream come true and Michelle and Keith could not have made their home comfortable or welcoming! We had a gloriously relaxing and fun week away!
Nature abounds-- am and pre-dusk heron visits, hummingbirds providing constant entertainment, osprey, seal, and deer sightings are just a sample. Nothing quite like morning coffee on the deck--plenty of comfy chairs for reading and visiting too! Fun to watch the lobsterman gather their catch and calm waters call for kayaking. Perennial garden is delightfully rich in color and variety. Maine cookbooks, a cabinet full of games and puzzles, as well as music and movies re-enforce--pack light--it's all covered here!
Acadia National Park is just a 40 minute drive away and filled with great hikes, carriage roads, bike paths and exciting rock climbing adventures, as well as Bar Harbor. Michelle and Keith's resource guide to all local area attractions is comprehensive.
Highly recommend and can't wait to return!
Lamoine is a small coastal community located at the head of Frenchman's Bay in Hancock County, Maine. Lamoine was settled in the 1760's and was a major ship building community prior to the civil war. Near Ellsworth and Bar Harbor, it offers plentiful shopping and dining options nearby. Only 30 minutes from Acadia National Park for phenomenal hiking and sight seeing. Minutes from two public golf courses. Deep sea fishing, whale watching, and sailing tours are available in nearby Bar Harbor. Lamoine State Park is close by, in an ocean side setting with picnicking, dock, and boat access. Marlboro Beach, a coarse sand beach, is in walking distance from the cottage. The area is exceptional for kayaking and bird/nature watching.
