Great quiet place to relax and enjoy the outdoors!
Beautiful home, beautiful location and beautiful views. Owners communication was excellent and very friendly. We’d definitely stay here again. Close enough to see most parts of Maine from Cadillac Island to Portland to the Highlands. Beautiful bay views and watched the crab and lobster fisherman check their traps right from the deck.
Well furnished, attractive property in a great, quiet location. Beautiful water views, easy access down to rocky beach area. Overall excellent rental experience!
Best place to stay for relaxing with beautiful views!
This is our second stay in this amazing home! We have experienced how comfy and romantic it is to stay here as just a couple. Now we have experienced how well equipped it is to stay with our family too. Betsy guides you through wonderful things to do like a local on days you are not hiking in Acadia. You are only forty minutes away from MDI and the Schoodic Side of Acadia both. The view from all the bedrooms and decks rivals any that you can hike to so it is hard to even want to leave the house. The kitchen is very well equipped. Betsy grows fresh herbs on the deck that go great with any local seafood market’s catch of the day. She has a steep but very safe ladder down to her own rocky beach at low tide that we went down to daily. The house has lovely and comfortable furnishings. You choose your own nook to curl up in for a great view or to read a book. Betsy has great books, board games, puzzles, DVDs (although with so much to do and enjoy we never turned on a TV). Lots of great comfortable outdoor furniture for eatting out on the deck or on the screened in porch too. The gas grill was great for grilling fresh Mahi Mahi and Halibut. The house itself is charming, tucked in down a little dirt road. A very quiet spot to truly get a break from daily grind! Which she has a great coffee grinder coffee pot that makes excellent coffee! A definite necessity!! Communications with Betsy both trips has been easy and frequent. She is a wonderful hostess who welcomes you into a true home. I recommend it as long as you don’t want the weeks we do! Ha! We definitely want to stay again!! Thank you for another memorable vacation!
Beautiful property. Excellent location; very peaceful.
Absolutely idyllic Maine home!
We were searching and searching for a Maine home that had an amazing view, space to play outside, and reasonably close to Acadia. Betsy’s home was all of that, and more! The pictures absolutely do not do it justice. We stayed in the home for almost two weeks, and never tired of just sitting and admiring the beauty right outside our window. The home has everything you might need, and was very comfortable and welcoming. The beach down the steps provided hours and hours of entertainment, and we made memories at this property that will last a lifetime. We could not have been happier with our choice of vacation homes. Thank you Betsy for a wonderful stay!
What a gem!
The perfect location for a Maine visit!!! Close enough to hike Acadia National Park, but quiet and peaceful at the end of the day. We watched bald eagles and osprey fly over the deck daily, woke to the sound of lobster boats and loons, cooked dinner in the perfectly appointed kitchen, lounged on the deck, screened porch and roof deck. This is the perfect house for an active but relaxing vacation. The house is exceptionally furnished, with plenty of space for multi- generations to stretch out. A well equipped kitchen with many staples provided, pots of fresh herbs adorn the deck. We grilled dinner on the deck one night, cooked wonderful local lobster and crab meat another night, and enjoyed several fun local restaurants also.
There are so many other wonderful hikes, bike paths, and picturesque villages scattered up the coast that 'Aerie' is the perfect location! A quick drive to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, but close to Schoodic Point and Down East Maine, you can really get to know the area from this beautiful spot. The rugged, rocky, beaches are beautiful!
Betsy was very helpful planning day trips and activities for our family, suggesting everything from hikes and kayak trips to art galleries and shopping. It was wonderful to have advice on restaurants and local lobster pounds, where to rent bikes, the best place to park for a walk to a great beach... A binder at the house has invaluable information about the house, area, and local summer community and Betsy was available by phone for other questions. We are already planning our return trip!
This lovely cottage is conveniently located between Bar Harbor & Acadia National Park and Schoodic peninsula, also part of Acadia. Both destinations (with beauty that attracts visitors from around the world each year ) are within just a 35 min. drive and are abundant with trails, lakes, mountains, and beaches as well as shops, theaters, museums, and fine dining. Whale watching, mountain biking, and kayak tours are all recommended. The cottage is also only a minute or two from Hancock Point summer community where you can dine at the renowned Crocker House Country Inn, visit the Hancock Point Chapel, play tennis on clay courts, or swim/fish/boat off the Hancock Point dock (where sailing lessons are offered for children and teens during July and August). Ellsworth is only a 15 minute drive from the cottage where you’ll find shopping centers, malls, restaurants and cafes. Bangor International Airport is a 45 min. drive from the cottage and the smaller Trenton Airport is just 20 min. away.
