We lived in this beautiful home for 10 years before moving to Portland, Maine because of our jobs. I won't sell the home because I LOVE the home and location. We have shared the home with over 60 happy renters over the last seven years - just check out the great reviews.
Jon Fanburg purchased this house in 1998
True tranquility made us buy this house. Large rooms with high ceilings and big windows make you feel like you are part of nature. At night, you can see the stars from you bed. An added perk is being only 20 minutes from the hiking of Acadia National Park. But you don't even need to travel that far, as seals, osprey, and bald eagles hang out along the river's edge out back of the house.
LOBSTER - I LOVE IT. I use to park my boat out back and go check the traps each morning. For those without a boat, you can buy it fresh within 10 minutes of the house (both cooked or live).
Your home is truly a gem! We had the most wonderful time. We vacation in various places throughout the U.S. and rent homes in each site, but your home is truly one of the top choices.
Beautiful place to stay and close to everything you would want to do while visiting northern Maine. Ellsworth was a beautiful town to walk around and do window shopping. Mount Desert had all kinds of hiking, biking and walking trails, restaurants, winery and activities for couples and families. The owner Jon was super helpful and very nice...the house had everything you could ask for! We rented the house with two other couples (one which just had twins) and the house was large enough for all of us to have our own space. My husband brought our bass tracker and was able to anchor it along the property. We will be renting this place for sure on our next visit to Maine...thanks for having us!

Family of 7 from Ann Arbor, Michigan
What a wonderful, spacious home in an idyllic location!. We had a joyous week of hiking, paddling, climbing, and just taking in the breathtaking vistas. The well-appointed, contemporary house, overlooking the stunning Union river, comfortably fit our family of 7 plus two additional guests. The house served as a great launching pad for daily trips to Acadia/Bar Harbor, about 20 minutes away, and other local attractions for our kids (e.g., ropes course, zip line, and mini golf). The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, supplies, and all the appliances you need if you want to cook in. Several very good grocery stores are located around 10 minutes drive into Ellsworth. The pool table, kyak, and high speed internet were wonderful bonuses. The owner is highly responsive and provides a list of restaurants with his personal ratings and reviews that was very helpful in deciding where to eat and what to do around the area. One of our best family vacations ever. Hope to visit again.
Great house and great views. Accommodated 7 adults easily. Lots of room for everyone. The owner was responsive and accessible. Shopping was only minutes away. Bar Harbor was only about 30 minutes away. No broadcast TV capabilities and slow Internet service so video streaming was a problem. Would highly recommend this property if you are looking for waterfront access, views, and lots of living space for your vacation.
Austin's Point is a fantastic place to relax in peace and serenity of a nature and wildlife refuge, and still be a convenient base for touring the many points of interest in the area. The spacious house is clean, versatile, and well equipped, and the property offers great views of the river and a quiet hideaway for enjoying nature. We enjoyed our stay immensely. Thanks!
Our family visited Austin Point for two weeks during which we had perfect weather! The house has windows everywhere which are perfect to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. We were right on the water and sightseeing was in short travel times. Extended family is such a luxury for children and shared vacations provide the perfect setting for stories, activities, tall tales, laughs and questions, which connects all the age groups and all the many talents within the family.
I recommend that you gather your loved ones, rent this home and start all new memories!
I have stayed at this rental several times and each time I think it just can't get any better--but it does! The house is clean and well cared for; the owners are easy to deal with. It is close to Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Isle (and Acadia National Park)--where the hiking and shopping are wonderful. Yet, this rental is a peaceful and calm oasis from all the hectic activity when I come "home." It's big enough for family, but small enough to feel intimate and homey. I recommend this rental to you with no reservations whatsoever!
Acadia National Park - most visited park in the US.
Blue Hill Penninsula
Lobster - lots of it !!!!
