Northeast and Southwest Harbor and Blue Hill are all close by.. The main commercial area is Ellsworth (15 minutes drive) with everything you could ever need.

Fun attractions include several scenic flight and whale watch companies, professional kayak tours, logging shows, miniature golf, and much more. Blunt's Pond is a beautiful and clean spring-fed swimming pond about a 12 minute easy walking on the woods path and of course you can brave the Atlantic on the shore. Lamoine Beach is a couple miles down the road as is the Lamoine State Park.

Our wonderful land is located on the east end of Berry's Cove with great views of Frenchman’s Bay and Mt. Desert Island along with direct access to the shore across the front lawn. With a southwest exposure, you’ll love the bright sunny days and gorgeous sunsets. You’ll be surrounded by lots of wonderful wildlife, including eagles, loons, herons, and many other sea and shore birds.

About Frederick & Aija Cahn

Our family has owned this property for generations. We live here, love the land, and take care of it. We are happy to be your hosts for your vacation.

Frederick & Aija Cahn purchased this cottage in 1961

Why Frederick & Aija Cahn chose Lamoine

There are the remnants of several piers on the shore as this property has been a summer retreat for years - since the 19th century! It is a beautiful, historic, and relaxing property with all the modern conveniences. You are on 12 acres of woods, streams, and a pond in addition to the shore. Close to the Acadia Park, Bar Harbor & Mount Desert Island, and Down East attractions but without the crowds and expense.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is unique - right on the water and clean and delightful.

Had a great tie!

  • 4 of 5

Quaint, clean and very private! At first I thought we were too far away from Bat Harbor, but as it turned out it wasn't too far at all. It's a beautiful drive and only took about 20 minutes to get to Bar Harbor from the cottage. we had no issues at the cottage, my only suggestion is to get curtains that go the entire width of the window.

Peaceful Oceanside Getaway - Just Right For Two

  • 5 of 5

The Studio is in a peaceful spot right on the water. The cabin was clean, charming, and equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing week away. The property is lovely with beautiful views across the Mt Dessert Narrows - gentle sloping lawn down to the beach makes for easy kayak launching (bring your own or rent just up the road.) Great location convenient to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Ellsworth, Schoodic Point. There's even a local lobsterman right up the road who will boil your lobsters for you at no extra charge. Our host was friendly and accommodating without being intrusive - on our first morning we found that the toaster wasn't working and it was replaced literally within minutes of our mentioning it. Very nice.

Wonderful Place and People

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for my wife and I. It had everything we needed. The location was beautiful, next to the sea shore. Each morning I sat on the bench right at waters edge and enjoyed the quietness (which you will not find in Bar Harbor), only to be interrupted by the occasionally sea gull and the slow ripple of the waves. The owner and his family are great and some of the most friendly people you will ever meet. They make you feel at home. The whole experience was great from the time we arrived till we departed. I would HIGHLY recommend this property to anyone looking for a quite getaway along the Maine cost line.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very generous review. You folks were wonderful guests. We very much enjoyed having you stay with us. It is very gratifying when we see people having so much fun and enjoying the property for what it is. This is a special place. For those that get it, it is almost ethereal and we are so very, very happy to share it with others. Having guests like you make renting out the cottages very rewarding indeed.
