About Bernhard Mueller

I lived many years in Europe and this is my place in the maine woods. It reminds me so much of Germany/France with the many lakes and forests only that there is much more nature and animals here in Maine. Paradise for me.

Bernhard Mueller purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Why Bernhard Mueller chose Glenburn

Because I fell in love with it. It is in the woods but only 20 minutes from the big shopping centers or the airport. The people who live year round there are very nice and helpful. And the House is very beautifull.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The air is so pure and the water is so clean and the people are so friendly. I have traveled the whole world, but this is home away from home, just perfect and beautiful. Take a cup of coffee in the morning overlooking the pond, watching the deer passing by, what more can you ask for.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were 2 couples staying for 4 nights during the winter. Martin called Don to help us get in the house and Don was very friendly and even brought his dog for us to pet :-)



The beds are very comfortable, sheets and blankets are available, as well as towels. Everything was like new, perfectly clean! The hot tub is awesome, but required a bit of work to set up, because in the winter it is generally off. The kitchen is very well equipped.



We couldn't enjoy a lot of the nature around because it was snowing, but regardless we had an awesome time and highly recommend the place. Certainly worth going back during the Fall.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle, relax and enjoy wildlife and Maine's beauty, this is the place! If you want more of the noise and attractions, then it is not. For our group of 6 it was perfect. We had plenty of space to be comfortable and the cabin had all the amenities.

Bernhard and Ann were amazing to work with and very accommodating. Everything was clean, well maintained and ready for occupancy. If we had questions during our stay they responded immediately.

The house will not appear in your gps so follow the directions that they provide. We arrived very late at night and following what they provided we got there without any wrong turns.

Visiting Acadia was top on our list. It was about 1 1/2 hours away from the house but with the amazing scenery the trip went rather quickly. Again if you want things closer, this might not be for you. But with everything this has to offer it was a great trade off.

Waking up to wildlife in your yard, trails to walk on, a fishing pond or a short walk to the lake and plenty of fresh air made this the most amazing spot to stay. Even a hot tub, pool and firepit are provided, so get the smores ready!!

Last but not least, when you visit here don't forget to check out the local fare and stop at the parking lot lobster dealer. Fresh lobster to cook at home was unbelievable.

We miss it already and can't wait to go back.

Sadly disappointed in this "Luxury Wood Resort" which seemed to be too secluded also from the owner

  • 1 of 5

We were sadly disappointed with our recent home away stay at the listed property because of the following things.

A/C was listed on this house; air conditioning unit was not able to keep the house cool at all only the stairwell where it was located. We were forced to purchase small personal fans to place at the bedside in order to sleep.

Fully stocked kitchen and house was missing several items such as toilet paper, paper towel, plastic spatula to flip eggs or pancakes, no ironing board as listed of items included and (One) wash cloth in the entire house.

The house was poorly lit or with lighting that didn’t work in several rooms to have only small accent recessed lighting which made it extremely difficult to prepare meals or see in the bathroom while doing makeup.

Upstairs shower sprayed above the occupants head.

Ice maker in the kitchen was inoperable and was not producing ice.

Hot tub was not up to temp and was not useable the first night and a couple nights later chlorine was added by the owner which made it impossible to use because of the extremely strong smell of chlorine.

Fire pit with wood for the 1st night, then upon request for additional wood, the owner’s brother brought over a dull hatchet, worthless camp saw and a broken carpenter’s saw so that we could cut our own firewood.

I was stung by wasps or bees which came from under the walk way to the pond. The owner/manager was notified of this and we were given wasp spray to take care of it ourselves. Looking at older reviews, it was noted that the owner was aware of this problem.

The beach view or lake view should not be included in on this description of the location. The only water view is a pond or the very small child’s pool located in the yard.

The owner should note how long it takes to get to the coast and to town, not just put down the mileage which is deceiving. It is only 40 miles to the coast, but they fail to tell you that it takes almost 2 hours to get there from the property.

Several reviews noted how pleasant and helpful the owner was during their stay at this home. We never met the owner and had only talked to the manager twice along with the owner’s brother twice.

Once we returned home, my wife contacted the owner about our stay and he was less than receptive to anything that she said.
