About Jon Fanburg

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

Why Jon Fanburg chose Downeast and Acadia

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.

What makes this house unique

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).

Guestbook comments from the owner

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 location, great house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Great house and location. Easy access to Acadia National Forest, Bar Harbor and other locations! Ellsworth is a very neat town to explore as well. Finn's Pub was a fabulous dinner and an awesome Mudslide!!! Downeast was a great lobster choice! Our only complaint was not enough time in our itinerary at this locale. We will be back!

Gorgeous property in picturesque main

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely stunning. Fantastic views, and a wonderful home is accompanied by kayaking, fishing, hiking, and all of the beauty of Maine. I would recommend this home to anybody who is looking for a spacious, comfortable vacation home to accommodate a party of ten or less. Had a wonderful time, and I have a feeling I will be back renting again!

Good place to stay with friends

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, clean, warm house with huge windows and scenic views from the windows. It is a good house for a company of up to 8-9 people. The landlord is super nice and was always available to answer our questions. 30 min to Acadia visitor center, 15 min to Walmart and other grocery stores.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect home and perfect family vacation

August 21-27, 2016

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!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: It is a great house with great views. We admit that rural internet is slow, slow, slow, but best available to date. However, lucky for future renters, that the cable company is laying down line and this property is scheduled to get access to cable in the fall of 2016. This will allow for both cable TV and 10-20x the internet speed of yesteryear. Till then, will have to kick the kids outside to see nature.
