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 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.

Beautiful location, perfect for getaway with access

  • 5 of 5

Had everything we needed to cook and enjoy ourselves. Hosts were generous and helpful. Property was close enough to Mt. Desert Island for day trips to Bar Harbor and Acadia, but far enough away to feel secluded and private. Really, the perfect spot.

Adorable cottage is everything it seems to be on line. Quiet setting right on the water, peaceful with beautiful views. Very clean and well kept. The drive to Acadia is significant but to us totally worth it in exchange for the away from it all relaxed feeling the cottage has. The cottage itself is spacious but there is not a lot of drawer/shelf space to store food/clothing, etc. Wasn't a problem but worth being aware of, pack light!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review and suggestions. We agree, the traffic this year was horrendous. Normally it is 25 minutes to the Bar Harbor Gate @ Acadia Park. This year, it certainly was more. Bangor, normally under an hour from our home, was a minimum of 1.5 hours during the day. Both will be much better after Labor Day. We will look into getting a cupboard to increase storage, You are right. Thanks!! Please do come back. You were great guests.

Beautiful, quiet, clean property on the ocean

  • 4 of 5

My fiancé and I had a great time at this cottage. We had everything we could have needed & it was very quiet and peaceful. The drive to bar harbor was 25-30 minutes, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves despite the commute! The ocean at the property would have been a great spot to put the kayaks in the water if we had brought ours. My only complaint would be that the bed was not very comfortable, but a simple egg crate pad or mattress topper would solve that! We would come back again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. We are glad you enjoyed yourselves. We really try to make this an enjoyable experience for our guests. As to your complaint, this is a good quality new firm mattress as most of our guests prefer. We ask all our guests at several points during their stay if they have any issues or if anything is wrong with the cottage. We can't fix something if we don't know about it and we particularly can't fix something if we find out about it in a review. We do have a memory foam mattress topper for those guests who prefer it. In the future, we will put out a note in the cottage reference it.
