Beautiful Lake Front Home near Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Fabulous in every way!

  • 5 of 5

The property is absolutely gorgeous! Full of beautiful gardens, lots of places to sit, and a great deck for grilling and lounging. The house is very well appointed and extremely comfortable. Beds are super comfy too.

The lake house and land are incredibly quiet and peaceful. Most of the time the only sounds we heard were the cries of the loons, the wind blowing through the trees and the hummingbird's wings moving at the speed of light.

We so look forward to going back on "retreat" to this warm and welcoming lake house!

Oh, one more thing. The Pond is spring fed so is super clean. And warm! Warm swimming water is not easy to come by in Maine with our deep, cold lakes and chilly ocean. So swimming without a wetsuit was a real treat for us!
