This traditional Maine camp has provided many families and friends with a relaxing enjoyable experience for close to a decde. In 2012 it served as an Artists Retreat for 'The Maine Attraction' artist group. The artist used Eagleview as a base of operations. Several works were also painted on location. The “Cottage” has 4 bedrooms and offers total privacy with spectacular views. Large windows offer stunning views of Mount Desert Island. Sliding glass doors lead to a large deck, the backyard and ocean. The second floor has three bedrooms. Two bedrooms have their own private balcony, perfect for watching the sunrise.

This region has many protected and private lands that are maintained as open space and agriculture to reveal an unspoiled and 'real' Maine. Pass through a working landscape of lobstering, clamming, blueberry barons and timberland.

Schoodic Peninsula Bike Tour: Loops take cyclists through the easternmost reaches of Acadia National Park at beautiful Schoodic Point, as well as through picturesque fishing villages and along a dramatic stretch of Maine’s rocky coast.

Lovely private cottage with a beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

We had such a fantastic time at Eagleview, the cottage was precisely as advertised. It was in the perfect location for us- close enough to Acadia and Bar Harbor, and especially convenient for the Schoodic peninsula (wonderful sunrise at blueberry hill)- but still out of the way enough to have a private, cozy spot to relax with an absolutely wonderful view. We had a kayak delivered and were able to take it out twice around the island, such a beautiful place. There were so many things to do and see that there could probably never be enough time to do them all. And even though there is no bad weather, only weather, it turned out perfect for us. A little overcast and rainy when we arrived but sunny and comfortable the rest of the stay which helped provide some vivid fall foliage. Overall we had a fantastic vacation with a nice, comfortable place to relax at and come home to that we would recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: Another near perfect rating! Please remember check out is 11am. By abiding by the required checking out time our care taker will have enough time to prepare the property for the next party’s arrival at 3pm. Over the years we have found that when guests do a bulk of their laundry the day before departure it allows them to enjoy a stress free departure. After a relaxing week who wants to stress the day of departure? While all linens are supplied, many guests bring an extra set of sheets and towels to use the day before check out in order to cut down on time spent doing laundry the morning of their departure. Peak weeks fill fast and it is always a disappointment when we have to turn away interested renters. We want you to experience the pleasure Eagleview has provided our guests over the years. So remember to book your vacation early.

Perfect location for our family birthday adventure

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is so charming the upstairs top floor has an amazing view where we did in fact see and eagle!

The front door with it's huge wooden hinges is like entering a Hobbit house.

During our stay we visited Schooic point peninsula which is very close by. Also hiked at Petite manan wildlife refuge and went over to Bar harbor.

The location of the cottage could not be better and it is easy to get to close to the main road directions were perfect.

Thank you we enjoyed our week here!

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Not possible to find a better location. Amazing views. House is beautiful, well kept, and far enough from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough for easy day trips all over Maine.

Great way to visit "Down East"

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was wonderful, in a great location, scenic, and comfortable. The whole family and visitors enjoyed staying there. We immediately read the guest suggestions as well as former guest's comments. All were very helpful. The house was clean and well maintained. Having the caretaker close by was wonderful, not because we ever needed help, but because he was such an interesting, local guy.

We enjoyed the area greatly. Winter Harbor was a great starting point for exploring the Schoodic Pen. and the part of Acadia that was on the peninsula was outstanding. It was great for exploring, scenery, hiking, and picnicking. In two weeks we must have visited MDI at least 10 times and never got tired of it. Though it was crowded, it didn't take long to strategize a way to work around the crowds. We even traveled as far as Deer Isle. Everything we needed or wanted was within easy commute.

Tony provided excellent customer service. We have already recommended the cottage to friends. On the whole, our "Down East" experience was an unforgettable memory.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

At first glance I was taken away by the scenery! The cottage is no more than 10 steps away from Johns Cove, where I kayaked during the high tides. The house itself was very accommodating for my big family. Beautiful inside and out, Eagle View truly has a breath taking view from every floor! I just love the cabin feel. A big kitchen with all your cooking needs, and I just love the gas stove fire place for those cold chilly nights. Very big and spacy, and so many things to do around in the area, as well! We went to Schoodic and rode our bikes, went fishing and ended our day with a picnic by the shore line. We also went to Cadillac Mountain where we hiked all day, partly because we got lost. The best part for my big family was Tony's activity planner with many fun ideas to do around the area! "No such thing as bad weather, just weather!" That was very true up here with Maine weather. Also, when we needed to get in contact with Tony, he would always call back as soon as he could. Very helpful! Overall, we enjoyed our stay up in Eagle View and HIGHLY RECOMEND IT! We even hear Schoodic is adding in some camping grounds for next year, more hiking trails and even expanding the bike trails! We already have next year booked! We loved it! Best vacation we've experienced so far!

uniquely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Maine did not disappoint The area is beautiful. The house was unique, clean, and had plenty of room with everything we needed. The host was very helpful and gave us great information on what to do in the area including renting kayaks and going on a boat tour with a local , Captain Roberts. It was a wilderness show on the bay outside the house during low tied, and great water for kayaking during high tied. Couldn't have ask for a nicer place to stay!
