About Ben Zamore

I grew up on the island and found this lovely spot 25 years ago and welcome the opportunity to share this with people who appreciate this part of the world

Ben Zamore purchased this cabin in 1990

Why Ben Zamore chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

Waterfront property on Mount Desert Island is a precious commodity. This cabin is not fancy but the location an views are as good as they get.

What makes this cabin unique

You can hear the water lapping up on the sore while you lie in bed. Incredible sunsets while sitting around a fire on the beach

Waterfront Cabin with Private Dock and Cobblestone Beach

  • 5 of 5

When we stepped out of our car and took in the gorgeous view I knew that we had picked the perfect spot for our vacation. The one-room cabin was a pure delight. So cozy and it had everything that we needed for our stay. We kept the barn like doors open our entire stay and loved looking out the ceiling to floor screens that were across the entire front of the cabin. How wonderful to wake up in the morning and look out at the ocean and the beach from our bed. The kitchen did not lack a thing and we were amazed that there was also a microwave. The on-demand shower on the back deck was marvelous and it was always nice and warm. The cabin is best for two people. There were so many nice touches from the floating dock to the fire pit on the beach, to the gas grill and to the comfy outside chairs. The cabin was very private and even though there were renters in the house and in the other cabin on the property they were far enough away from our cabin that it was never a problem. We also loved being on the quiet side of the island and especially enjoyed Thurston's Lobster Pound. Another highlight was the Island Cruises which is a nature cruise out of Bass Harbor.

My husband and I really loved this rental and we would come back in a heartbeat!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect! Fell asleep and woke up to the sound of the waves on the beach. Wonderful floating dock to sit/lay on and all necessary appliances for a comfortable stay. Bonfires on the beach were another wonderful aspect. Hopefully will be able to return year after year!

bonding with Nature

  • 5 of 5

so close to the water that the sound of the waves crashing on the beach becomes your sleep mantra.

reminds one of the purity of Mother Nature to cleanse one's soul.

Northeaster blowing through reminded one of the power of wind to dominate.

stay hear and experience the bliss of simplicity.

Plan to come back again and again!!

Easy to love

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the area and Ben was extremely knowledgable and helpful. I am reluctant to even write a review because we found the cabin to be a slice of heaven and want to keep it to ourselves as our special place.

The cabin is rustic but has everything that you need including a hot shower and full toilet. It gave us all of the comforts that we needed while allowing us to enjoy our love of nature and each other. The sunsets are amazing and there is nothing like boiling fresh lobsters on the beach by a bonfire.

The cabin truly made a wonderful everlasting memory for us and we plan to return regularly.

True Maine Beauty

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough wonderful things about the cabin and my dealings with Ben through the rental process. He was very responsive and great to work with in renting out the cabin, he made it easy and actually pleasurable. The cabin itself is very clean, well maintained and has the perfect amenities to make you feel at home without taking away from your connection to the landscape, beauty and fresh ocean air.

The downtown area is lovely and quaint with little shops and great restaurants. We cooked at the cabin a few times -there was a very nice lobster pot and burner for us to use- and we also ate out. The cabin is located on the "quiet" side of the island so you don't have all of the tourists like Bar Harbor, yet Bar Harbor is a short drive if you would like to visit for a day or an afternoon. The location is really the best of both worlds offering serenity when you desire, but allowing you to explore and mingle with others when (and if) you like. Acadia itself is an outdoor enthusiasts paradise with plenty of hiking trails, biking on the gorgeous carriage roads, kayaking, fishing, photography.....

If you like nature, the beach and Maine there is truly no better location than this cabin! It is a slice of heaven on Earth!
