What could be nicer for your family to vacation at a gorgeous restored farmhouse surrounded by beautiful fields and your own mountain with 10 private hiking trails? Spottsbrooke provides just that! This wonderful 35-acre property, bordered by Acadia National Park land on two sides, is located on the western side of Mount Desert Island, about 15 minutes to Southwest Harbor and 20 minutes to Bar Harbor. Deer visit the fields daily, to feed on the apple trees. Pond's end at Long Pond is just a mile away for kayaking and swimming!
On the first floor the cottage features a lovely living room with cathedral ceilings and gorgeous granite woodburning fireplace. The large elegant kitchen has a 6-burner stove and a separate wok burner (lobster cooker). The dining table seats 8. Also on the first floor is the master king bedroom and bath with large steam shower with benches.
The 2nd floor features an open loft with a queen bed and sleep futon (double size) and wall-mounted flat screen TV. There is also a king bedroom, a bedroom with two twin beds and a full bathroom.
The lower (basement) level opens to the backyard and features an amazing home theater (seats 5) with reclining chairs and 60' screen, blue ray, surround sound and an old fashioned popcorn machine! There is also a 1/2 bathroom.
The lovely wrap-around porch provides beautiful vistas of the fields, and mountain. Private, peaceful and a vacation unto itself, Spottsbrooke is a very special vacation property!
Amenities include washer/dryer, dishwasher, WIFI, satellite TV (two), local telephone, microwave, gas BBQ, outdoor seating, home theater, firepit and outdoor campfire area!
Stayed here in early May 2016, a bit before the busy season. Never had a better vacation in my life. Acadia was open and nothing was crowded. This property was absolutely stunning. Most amazing kitchen I've ever seen, tons of wildlife in the fields and hiking trails on the premises. Just having morning coffee looking out all the windows was a joy. So relaxing and peaceful. I'll be booking another trip next year -- again early in the season -- and will definitely ask for this property again.
Our family spent a wonderful week here August 22-29, 2015. Acadia National Park is one of our nation's treasures and staying in this home on the quiet side of the island really made this trip the best vacation we've had in years! The setting was peaceful. The grounds are beautiful - scenic like a postcard of a farm in New England. The house very comfortably sleeps 10 with 3 bedrooms and a loft. The kids really loved the loft with the flat screen TV and enough floor space for board games and lego projects. The kitchen was fabulous. We took advantage of the lobster pot and special burner to cook lobster dinners two different nights. We picked up the live lobsters at Beal's Lobster Pound in Southwest Harbor and pies from Island Bound Treats, simply the best on the island (we sampled lots). Everyone enjoyed the open floor plan and the huge table allowing for lingering conversation after meals. The TV room in the basement was a nice addition for the one day it rained. We will definitely be returning on our next trip to Maine. We look forward to adding to the great memories created in this special place!
Stayed in the house for the week of Thanksgiving tor some "get away from it all" family bonding. The house is definitely beautiful - kitchen is nicer than our kitchen at home! We found the bedrooms to be comfortable and cozy and the linens to be of good quality. We enjoyed the theater room as well as the theater popcorn machine. We had lots of fun outdoors as the property is beautiful even in the winter. We got some unexpected snow, which allowed use of the small hill behind the house for sledding. Nothing else could have topped how we ended each day - in front of a crackling fire in the granite fireplace. Our time in this lovely home was really all that we expected and more. Can't wait to return in warmer weather!
This home is falsely advertised as a four bedroom home. It is actually a three bedroom home with an additional room in the basement that does not meet local fire codes. There are no windows and no exit from this "bedroom." Additionally, the room is located next to an unfinished part of the house with exposed insulation and has a terrible musty odor. The upstairs level is nice but the house comfortably sleeps only 8. The kitchen is big and accommodates large families well however, there is no microwave oven and not even the basic spices including salt and pepper are included. The house was also not properly cleaned upon our arrival. The upstairs bathroom had not been cleaned and was full of hair on both the floor and in the tub. The local caretaker was notified as well as the rental company and the owner and noone made any attempts to address our concerns.
Enjoy 10 private hiking trails on property's 35 acres!
