Why Michael or Tracy Tatarcyk chose Otis


What makes this house unique

Our house is conveniently located between the public boat launch and the public beach both only a short walk in either direction. The lot is large and has something to offer everyone, weather playing lawn games, or laying on our private beach, swimming in shallow water or jumping off docks, climbing rocks and boulders, or even catching frogs.

The many sliding doors and windows and open floor plan make lake views accessible from almost every room. Sitting on the large comfortable deck drinking coffee and watching the sunrise is a great way to start any day.. then later in the day when the sun starts to set you can sit and listen to the loons, or later watch the stars while feeling the breeze from the water. Every day offers a different beautiful view of this lake. We love this lake and are sure any one visiting it will as well.

Beautiful even in the Fall!

  • 5 of 5

While not given to long reviews, we must advise that the Cottage on Beech Hill Pond in Otis, Maine is a wonderful experience even in the cooler weather. We were there for a great week in late September 2017 and really enjoyed it. I can just imagine being able to swim and boat during the warmer months, and it's no wonder it has 5 star ratings from so may others. The Cottage is large and comfortable enough for two families -- but was extra special for the two of us and our super-great and mushy pit bull. Nilah! Plus it is little more than 15 minutes from Ellsworth with some great restaurants, and about an hour from Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor! It's location is peaceful, real "country" and ideal for a relaxed get-away. Enjoy!!

Absolutely loved it..

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation. We had beautiful weather and spent every day out on the beach. We went fishing, kayaking, and set up some games on the grass. The house was clean and had everything we needed and more.

Great spot. wonderful view of pond from deck and lawn.

  • 4 of 5

It was a great spot on the pond.This was a family summer vacation and we had 8 adults and 4 grandchildren a puppy and an older dog. The small beach was great for the young kids and the adults swam off the dock. The lawn was flat enough that we could setup and play games there. With our large group we appreciated the dishwasher and the fridge with water and ice in the door. The dining area was a bit small for our group but the weather was good and we ate many meals on the large deck. Overall a great week.

Awesome view of the lake, plenty of room to spread out, great for kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with 7 adults, 6 kids ranging from 1 month to 6-years old. There was plenty of space for everyone to eat and sleep. Kids loved their own private area to make sand castles and the cove made it so that nobody could get too deep in the water too quickly. During our time we saw loons, otters and a bald eagle. We traveled to Acadia two days. It was about an hour drive each way, but the drive was lovely and gave us an excuse to stop at a lobster pound for lunch. Be sure to pick up some wild blueberries or blueberry soda in Ellsworth. This nearby town has an LL Bean outlet as well as a Walmart and grocery stores to stock the cabinets during your stay. Property owner was also very responsive and always available. Would highly recommend a stay!

Best vacation in a long time...

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip up to the Acadia area and it did not disappoint! The house is incredibly cozy, even has a wood stove for the colder nights. The lake is very tranquil and we took several canoe trips on it with our dog. It is about a 40 minute drive to Acadia National Park, which is breath taking. We recommend eating at one of the lobster pounds in Ellsworth to get the full Maine experience. Overall, it was a fantastic vacation, one of the best ones we have had in a while. Definitely coming back!

Fantastic lake front property

  • 5 of 5

The property was privately nestled on a lake with it's own private dock and canoe. The property was clean and had everything we needed. We had the ability to bring our dogs, even though we ended up not, it wouldn't have been a problem. The house was very large, and easily accommodated the 5 of us. Ellsworth is a great little town to visit, and Bar Harbor and Acadia National park are amazing spots. Mike and Tracy had a lovely book detailing things about the house and lake and restaurant recommendations which were spot on. Finn's and the Union River were amazing restaurants. Our whole family looks forward to vacationing again in Maine, maybe in the summer next time so we can take more advantage of the water.

Beech Hill Pond
Car: recommended

Beechhill Pond is a beautiful place and it would be easy to never leave the lake, with activities like. swimming, fishing, hiking , boating ,or just relaxing to name a few. But if coming to Maine for the first Bar Harbor, and Acadia National park are a must see . Its where the mountains meet the sea. Hiking and biking are available as well as driving up Cadillac Mountain for breath taking views. Along the way you could stop and visit Sand Beach ,or thunder hole.. If the kids like water parks or mini golf they are near by .
