About Bobbie Ames
I have lived in many places and have traveled to great spots...but this beautiful tranquil place on the shore line of Maine means home to me. I love cooking, great books, drinking cups of coffee sitting outside and amazing restaurants. I am the youngest of 6 children - our families are all spread out across the United States...but we all get together in Maine for the most memorable of times.
Bobbie Ames purchased this House in 1983
Why Bobbie Ames chose Lamoine
This spot has always been home. We moved a lot growing up but our parents were both from Maine and every year we came back to Maine. At first, we would stay in Lamoine with our Great Aunt Eunice in a farmhouse that still exists to this day. Eventually my parents bought a cottage on the shore right next to this property. And we would stay there every summer. When the neighbors cottage came up for sale they bought that one too and began to make plans for their retirement home. They began designing and building their dream retirement home in the '80's. The home was finished and my father retired. But a fatal heart attack prevented him from ever living there. My Mother lived there year round for the rest of her life, refusing to leave this magnificent spot until health issues forced her to move into permanent care. We keep this property because we love it and because it is the legacy our parents wanted us to have. By renting it you are helping us to hold on to that legacy. And by sharing it with you we are introducing more families to the beauty of Maine.

Beautiful and clean
This home was beautifully decorated and very clean and lots of room. The nicest home we have ever rented. The view from the master bedroom was so beautiful to look out at every morning. We were able to see seals in the water durning our stay. It’s in a very nice location and private. I would highly recommend this home.
Wonderful family get away
This was an amazing property to stay at for our Maine trip. We were a group of twelve and there was plenty of room for all and we never felt on top of each other. The views from the property are outstanding and everything in the house was clean, well decorated and comfortable. We enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor but close enough to go in whenever we wanted. Bobbie was a fantastic and thoughtful owner-best in all the rentals we have done. She sent lots of great information ahead of time and responded quickly to any questions. Recommend renting kayaks -it was so easy to get in the water from the property and have a great trip, no matter what direction you went in. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend this property!
This property is amazing.! The house is beautifully decorated in a style that is inviting and warm. It has everything one could ask for and is immaculately clean. We wanted for nothing! The owner was very helpful and kind, and the view was second to none! I am usually ready to return home at the end of a vacation, but I wanted nothing more than to spend the rest of the summer in this wonderful place!
Stunning home with attention to detail and fabulous renters!!
Viewpoint is amazing!!! The home is absolutely beautiful and updated!! The view out the back is spectacular! This home is clean with SO many details - shampoos, conditioners, makeup removers and hair dryers in all bathrooms, dish soap, detergent, garbage bags, coolers in the garage and games/cards for use! There was plenty of common space for our two families (9 adults total) to spread out in! The kitchen was well stocked and even had some staples for our use! The icing on the cake was Bobbie had left us pancake mix and Maine syrup as a welcome gift which was perfect since we arrived late and then had breakfast in the morning! Finally, Bobbie sent lots of information prior to our arrival which we used to help plan our trip and she responded quickly, even though we didn't have any issues! I would HIGHLY recommend Viewpoint!
Thank you Lisa, I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed your time at Viewport. We love sharing the house with other families - and sharing our love of Maine. I hope you can schedule another trip very soon.
AMAZING HOME AWAY FROM HOME!!!!
This home far exceeded our expectations in every capacity. Not only is it incredibly clean, it is well outfitted too. Our family of 7 adults was able to spread out and have our own space as well as enjoy time together in the living area and kitchen. It is decorated like a picture in a magazine but yet was very comfortable and welcoming and personal - truly felt like Roberta was sharing her home with us not renting it to us. The view is incredible! The location quiet and peaceful and the perfect distance from all the crowds in Bar Harbor. Roberta put a lot of time into helping make our trip memorable with restaurant recommendations and suggestions for activities - it was greatly appreciated.
I can’t thank you enough for such a delightful review. I am so glad you enjoyed the home. I know I enjoyed chatting with you about the area and the house. Please plan a trip back very soon!
Beautiful property! Hard to leave
We planned a family trip to Acadia and stayed here for 4 nights- it was spectacular. The house has everything you can think of, and is very spacious with plenty of room for our party of 8. We are hoping to make this an annual trip! Would highly recommend.
Thank you so much Ashley! Very glad you enjoyed yourselves and would love to have you back as often as possible.
