Why Frederick & Aija Cahn chose Downeast and Acadia

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.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time here. The pictures don't do it justice. Great peace and quiet. Spent our days in bar harbor and acadia and our nights relaxing on the front porch. We were are southern and we're worried about no ac in the summer, it was not needed at all. The weather hit 80s during the day and at sunset cooled right down. Place had everything you needed. Very clean and we'll keep. Can't wait to come back.

Quiet, private cottage, beautiful waterfront location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a quite place to stay while visiting Mount Desert Island/Acadia Park. This cottage was perfect for us. Simple, quiet, private, and in a beautiful waterfront location on Berry Cove. We spent the days exploring the area, then picked up fresh lobster, fish, and other dinner items for a relaxing evening watching the sunset and the tide go out. We even saw a bald eagle fly in and land on a tree right in front of the cottage. Magical.

The drive to the park was about 30 minutes, so we did do a bit of "commuting" but it was well worth it for the peace and quiet, and the reasonable rate. Everything was clean and as described on VRBO. The only adjustment we had to make for the week was a lack of cell phone connectivity at the cottage, which in a way was a blessing. The cottage did have internet access. The Cahns were friendly but not instrusive. They recommended two restaurants that we visited and enjoyed both: Shinbashi (Asian) and Ruth & Wimpy's (lobster/seafood, hamburgers, etc.).

We would definitely recommend the cottage to our friends and family.

Very pleasant spot

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely setting on a cove and the views of the water at all times of day were nice and restful. It was our bad luck to be there on the four coldest days in June and even with the heater on the place never quite felt cozy. If I had known I would have packed slippers! Frederick and Aija were gracious but never intrusive. It felt SO private. Did not expect the 20-25 minute drive to get to Acadia National Park but that was a small price to pay to be in such a lovely secluded setting.

Excellent!

My wife and I loved this place. It was a beautiful location and we loved the little kitchen to make breakfast everyday. We have nothing bad to say about our stay and if we come back to Maine in the future we would definitely stay here again.

What a beautiful location. We loved it here and only wished we could have stayed for longer. We spent many hours sitting on the veranda and on our last day we even saw an eagle priceless! It has all you need for cooking although we didn't do much of that. It is a bit out of the way, but if you want those views its totally worth it. Spotlessly clean with loads of towels. Lovely family owned property.

There are many restaurants in Bar harbour, but if you get a chance eat at the Irish pub on the front. Out of all our clam chowders this was by far the best, delicious.

Quiet and restful studio cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Studio Next to the Ocean was quiet, relaxing, and comfortable. The view of the ocean inlet was amazing and the sunsets were just stunning! This clean and well-maintained cottage had everything we needed...kitchenette, dining area, comfortable bed, roomy bath, AND that great deck on the front. It was easy to get to and close to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Ellsworth, and Bangor. We will definitely come again!
