Remote peaceful and scenic
The house and the view were beautiful. Our family had a wonderful time
All modern conveniences immersed in nature
Well provided house for our group of 9, and we had room for more. Dock and kayaks a big plus. Quiet, private, beautiful natural setting.
Great family vacation!
Our extended family of ten spent a glorious week at Fjord House. We hiked, biked, saw whales and the Windjammer parade and thoroughly enjoyed the home on Somes Sound. After a busy day exploring, it was always so nice to come home to the "quiet side" of Acadia!
Great Views, Secluded and Quiet Location, Well-Appointed Home
House is very spacious and the living area is great for family get-togethers. Basement area is a good teen zone. Kitchen is well equipped. We enjoyed hanging out at the house, using the dock & kayaks, and walks & runs from the house. It is minutes from Echo Lake Beach, hiking at Mt. Acadia, and groceries at IGA. The scenic loop road and Bar Harbor are only about a 15 minute drive. We would definitely come again.
Exquisite waterfront home!
The best home ever for including the children and grandkids....so many nature things to keep everyone busy 24 hours a day from harvesting low tide mussels, watching the bald eagles fly over the deck, kayak the length of Somes Sound and play with the star fish on the rocks. Enjoyed every meal outside and slept like babies with the silence of the forest right outside our windows. Everyone definitely wants to go back and stay longer....many thanks for sharing your lovely home.
Well appointed home with lots of amenities. Wish I'd brought my binoculars as that was the only thing, besides a boat which I could have rented nearby, that wasn't available in the house. The dock, the sound, the habitat, the view, the porches, the woodstove, kayaks, etc. all well designed for my family's week on MDI next to Acadia. Should have done 2 weeks!
On the west shore of Some Sound with amazing sunrise and sunset views looking out over the water towards the mountains to the east. Private water frontage with floating dock and the use of three kayaks as well as other aquatic recreational gear. There are five separate decks providing areas to relax and take in all of the natural beauty of the area.
