A Beautiful Home, Views and close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

Stan and Theresa have a beautiful home. The combination of Oriental and Nautical is perfect. The home was spotless and peaceful. The kayaks were wonderful for our entire family - we spotted Bald Eagles, Kingfishers, and Loons, among other birds. The playroom downstairs was great for the teens. The roads were great for walking, biking, jogging, and just enjoying. The location was so convenient - we could get to Acadia National Park within 35 minutes - we went there 4 days. If you want to explore further we went to the classic seaport of Camden in just over an hour and to the working historic harbor of Stonington in less. Having the town of Ellsworth so close was wonderful because with 3 teenagers it seems you can never get enough food. Heather Lane is a private road and several map-generation websites couldn't give specific directions to the house. I used GoogleEarth and a few other sites to get a map of the general area. I'm sure you can call Stan and Theresa and get more details - they are a lovely couple.

  • 5 of 5

Stan and Theresa's home had everything they stated and much more! The home was immaculate, had beautiful views and many amenities. We had a wonderful week with lots to do close by and right at the house. Very relaxing! I highly recommend renting from Stan and Theresa!

Wonderful Family Home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this home! We had three families that included four teenagers and we all thought the home was perfect. The home included every possible amenity - kitchen was loaded, game room was perfect for game nights with teens, beds were awesome, and kayaking was so fun! Watching the NBA finals was fantastic from the best recliners in the living room! The house itself was a vacation! Thanks for thinking of everything!

Perfect Vacation 2 years in a row!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property so much in 2014 that we went back this year as well. It is a beautiful home and great set up for extended family and friends. We made good use of the kayaks, hot tub, pool and ping pong table and the deck is perfect for relaxing with a book looking out over the water. It is close enough to town for supplies yet far enough away to be private. The kitchen and dining area is large and well equipped for steaming lobsters, making blueberry pie or reheating chowder from the night before. Acadia is amazing and Bar Harbor is fun to explore and close enough to make multiple trips to insure you do not miss anything. We also recommend checking out the Old Creamery in Ellsworth and the LL Bean outlet never fails to add to the luggage headed home.

Stan and his family do a wonderful job and are very helpful and only a phone call away. I would highly recommend this rental and will plan on renting it again in the future if Stan will have us back!

OMG, can you say perfection?

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Maine on and off for about 20 years, renting different houses in the downeast area. Occasionally, we'll return the following year but not usually. This year, boy did we hit the jackpot on so many levels! When our son and his wife arrived about a half hour ahead of us, his text comment was 'This place is awesome!' He normally does not react to anything and he's OCD so this was huge. We had 3 generations, 7 adults and 2 boys, and we were all very comfortable, spoiled now actually. The 2 living levels were perfect for our family arrangement. We hiked the Beehive, Schoodic Mtn and a few others, biked the carriage roads and kayaked (got lost actually and had to beach the boat and knock on a door, got a ride home. Friendly folks up there.) We swam at Blunts Pond and beachcombed at Lamoine. We had a couple of campfires, sat on the deck a lot and just stared out at the scenery and hot tubbed of course. We checked out Timber Tina's, Wild Acadia, Oceanarium and the Thirsty Turtle in Bar Harbor. The big and little kids loved it all. Pat's Pizza, always. This house did not lack a single thing. It was in pristine condition on arrival and the location can't be beat for convenience to everything. Stan and Theresa are totally on top of communication. We booked for next year and have started our 'to do and see' list. Yay Maine 2016!
