Acadia National Park: Acadia National Park: In 1913, President Woodrow Wilson set aside 6000 acres (within what is now Acadia National Park) as Sieur de Monts National Monument. With the acquisition of more land and private support and funding, in 1919 President Wilson signed an act establishing Lafayette National Park. In 1929 the parks name was changed to Acadia. Acadia National Park was established to protect the area's spectacular scenic values, Maine's rock bound coast, its coastal and its offshore islands as characterized by the geologic features, natural history and the native plant and animal life. Forty five miles of rustic carriage roads weave around the mountains and through the valleys of Acadia National Park, the gift of philanthropist John D Rockefeller, Jr., and family. Rockefeller, a skilled horseman, desired to travel on motor free byways via horse and carriage into the heart of Mount Desert Island. His efforts resulted in roads with sweeping vistas and close up views of the landscape.

Cadalic Mountain: Cadillac Mountain: At 1,530 feet, Cadillac Mountain is not only the tallest mountain in Acadia National Park, but also the tallest mountain along the eastern coast of the United States. Rising high above the town of Bar Harbor, Cadillac Mountain offers magnificent views of the Porcupine Islands and Frenchman Bay. Explore the summit of this granite mountain along a .3-mile trail, which includes wayside exhibits about natural and human history. Portions of this trail are accessible to wheelchair users. Cadillac Mountain is accessible via a winding, narrow, 3.5-mile road. The road is closed from December 1 through April 14 and whenever weather conditions (e.g., dense fog or ice) require.

Great (kid friendly) house and views of the lake

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay with my now wife and our 11 month old son. The house itself is perfect with amazing views of Chemo Pond. Much to our surprise (and delight) there was a pack n' play at the house as well as a feeding high chair available for us to use. The owner is also very nice and accommodating, and is easy to reach if you have any questions or concerns.

There's not much to do in the immediate area but there are several towns within a half hour drive to eat, go shopping, antiquing, etc. Morton's Moo in Ellsworth has great ice cream!

I would highly recommend booking a stay here, we'll definitely be back again.

Excellent Get Away for Families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Joshes place last week with another couple. We had a total of 6 kids and 4 adults with us and all had a great time. It was a surprise to have the kids bed room area and a separate living room downstairs with a TV . It was a prefect area for them to hang out at night while the adults could have card nights. It felt like we all had our own area to hang out and it never felt crowded. The use of canoes, kayaks, life vests for all sizes and the floating dock made for lots of safe and fun time out on the water. We also rented a 3 person Jet ski for 2 days( from B and D Marina) and had a rope with tube to pull the kids around on....made for lots of fun and wonderful memories. We were very glad to be out of the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor yet close enough to do a day trip there. There was plenty to do at the camp with out having to really travel anywhere. WE LOVED IT! Would recommend it to anyone looking to get away with a family for sure:) We did have one issue with connecting to the WIFI upon arrival( a previous power outage had automatically reset the password) and it was corrected immediately by Josh. Thanks so much for allowing us the opportunity to enjoy your home!!
