About Daria Duda & Scott Morrison

Scott & Daria have been visiting the Bar Harbor area for many years and fell in the love with the area. They purchased Western Bay Shores in 2012, and another property a few miles away in 2014. They enjoy time here in the off-seasons as well. Back in Philadelphia, Scott is known for his award-winning beer, and helping new start-up breweries, while Daria works in marketing at a technology company.

Daria Duda & Scott Morrison purchased this house in 2012

Why Daria Duda & Scott Morrison chose Downeast and Acadia

When Scott & Daria bought Western Bay Shores, the former owners provided a comprehensive 'book' of everything about the house - ending their description with 'It's a special place.' This statement couldn't be more true … you'll find relaxation and enjoyment here at this home - it truly is a special place and we are happy that we can have our guests enjoy this slice of Maine as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Moon rise over the water - truly awesome, especially during a full moon. And the sunrises can be spectacular.

Comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our week rental. The house was in a prime location , close to everything but in a quiet peaceful setting on the water .The house was well equipped and comfortable. There was a good size fenced yard for our dog to play .We enjoyed many a sunrise and fires on the beach at night

Lovely home near the quiet side of Acadia

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay here. We are a family of four with two grade school aged kids - the house easily could have accommodated another family of four for folks who don't mind a house share. The house was well-outfitted and well-maintained. The beach access was great (an easy walk, no boulders or steep drop-off as with some properties in the area). The beds were comfortable and the Wi-Fi was good and dependable. There were ample, high-quality towels in the bathrooms. The well water here is very good. The kitchen had everything we needed and was better equipped than we have found most rentals to be (good selection of pots, pans, glassware and utensils). We found that the drive times to Bar Harbor and the main entrance of the park consistently ran 30 - 35 minutes respectively (as we anticipated). Note: there is virtually no Verizon cell service in this area, so if you are Verizon customer be prepared to use the landline, Google voice, Facetime, etc.). We did not encounter any problems with the house or the property during our stay.

Great house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the house both inside and out! My kids (all teens) loved the third floor space, my dogs really enjoyed the fenced yard and easy access to the beach while the grown ups enjoyed the porch and living room inside. House was very comfortable and spacious so we could all spread out and have some room. We loved the location, close to Bar Harbor and Acadia but far enough away that you felt the quiet and solitude of the area. Everything was thought of and provided in the house that we needed. We would definitely come back here again! The only thing I would advise light sleepers is to be aware that the noise from the third floor does come down into the second floor. I put the fan that was provided on which solved the problem for me.

Western Bay Shores is a lovely 4-bedroom home situated on 1.5 acres with 200' of private shore on Western Bay in Trenton.

Centrally located halfway between Ellsworth and the town of Bar Harbor and less than 20 minutes from Acadia National Park, and the Hulls Cove Visitor's center. Hike and bike or enjoy the scenic Loop Road en route to Jordan Pond, Sand Beach and Thunder Hole.

The cottage features 200' of private shore - sunbathe, beachcomb, or rent kayaks or canoes (can be delivered to the house for the week). New, large deck provides plenty of room for outdoor dining and relaxing. Fenced-in yard is great for the kids and your small family dog to run around too!

Four bedrooms including 1 King Master BR with sitting area and own bath, 1 Queen, 1 bedroom with 2 full beds on the 3rd floor, and 1 bedroom with 2 twins on the first floor. First floor also features living and dining rooms, kitchen and bath with shower & laundry.

Washer/dryer, HDTVs, Cable TV, and WIFI throughout. Rainy day? No problem - choose Wii, enjoy a movie or play a board game. Like to cook? Stocked kitchen provides you the basics, cookware and utensils. BBQ Gas Grill and grill utensils, too.

The town of Ellsworth is just 15 minutes up the road with quaint shops, and restaurants. Pick up fresh, local produce at the Ellsworth Farmer's Market or visit the historic Woodlawn Museum.

Mount Desert Island and Bar Harbor (11 miles) feature numerous shops, movie theater and dining (favorites by far are Cafe This Way and McKays or Side Street Cafe). Go for a boat ride and enjoy the fresh ocean air.

Attractions: Whether you have kids or not, check out Diver Ed, who launches daily excursions from the College of the Atlantic (20 minutes). It's a fantastic, must do activity. Other favorites include Pirates Cove Adventure Miniature Golf and Abbe Museum.

After your day of hiking Cadillac Mountain, biking the carriage roads or strolling through Bar Harbor, come home to Western Bay Shores - cook up your fresh lobsters by the sounds of the bay, have a campfire on the beach and relax!

At night, don't forget to look up to enjoy the moon rise over the water and unbelievable star gazing.

It's a special place.
