Peace And Relaxation By The Sea - Hiking and Biking In Acadia
About Kevin Nealon
My mom and dad started vacationing at Baycliff over 50 years ago. At that time we’d drive up from New Jersey (Metuchen, exit 10) and spend two weeks. I remember going deep sea fishing, hiking, sight seeing and all the other touristy things. Though I think my favorite activity was skipping rocks into the sea. Not that easy with waves and wind. In 1973 the property went up for sale and my dad immediately purchased it. Then we started staying a month at a time in the main house, which, back then, wasn’t much larger than the cabins. One year we brought up all seven of our cats and a raccoon that I was fostering! We’ve been renting the two cabins for over 40 years now years now. The above picture is myself, my two daughters and my mom, who has been taking care of the cabins during the summer. Mt. Desert Island features may attractions. If you ride a bicycle, the carriage roads are amazing! If you like to hike, the hiking trails are amazing! If you like to bird, we have humming birds and warblers! There are also some very good restaurants in Bar Harbor and elsewhere on the island. This really is a wonderful place.

Why Kevin Nealon chose Bar Harbor
Baycliff will destress you. I don’t know if it’s the quiet, the ocean, the cool clean air, the wind through the trees or the sounds of nature, but you will relax.

Great vacation spot, quiet and peaceful with fabulous views.
The Guest House was just as listed. It was exactly what I imagined a vacation in Maine would be like. The house was very clean. The property is beautiful. It was great having access to the water where we could kayak. The owner and caretaker both reached out to see how everything was. They even dropped an additional fan off when it was unusually hot. There were plenty of fans available in the house. The location is perfect for visiting Acadia and Bar Harbor. This was our first trip to Maine and we hope to return.
Beautiful view of Frenchman’s Bay
The Pines is exactly as listed and provides a very convenient location close to Acadia and Bar Harbor. We enjoyed morning coffee on the front porch looking at Frenchman’s Bay. Beds were comfortable and this rental is perfect for those looking for a clean, no frills cottage close to everything.
Rustic and cozy cabin
We loved our stay at Baycliff’s guest cabin and look forward to returning next year. Perfect quiet and private location. Close to Acadia, which stole our hearts!
Thank you very much for your wonderful review!
Quiet, rustic cottage
We enjoyed a lovely week at this quiet, simple cottage. My in-laws rented the other cottage (The Pines) on this property. Both places were spotless, well-maintained and had everything we needed for a self sufficient stay on Mt. Desert. Beautiful views of Frenchman's Bay, walks on the rocky beach down to "The Ovens" at low tide. Very close to Bar Harbor so easy to get into town, but far away from the chaos! We love coming up to Acadia every summer, hope to visit again soon!
Cabin in the woods by the bay
The cabin is quiet and has a rustic feel. We enjoyed slow mornings, waking up to the sounds of birds. Our dog enjoyed the walks around the cabin property and neighborhood as well as Eagle Lake and Jordan Pond. It’s a very dog friendly area!
