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.

This was a perfect spot for our group retreat.

  • 5 of 5

This house was spacious, comfortable, easily accessible and a gorgeous location for our small group retreat. The house is attractively decorated, with comfortable and appealing furniture and decor. It sits on waterfront with beautiful views and lovely access for swimming, canoeing, kayaking and enjoying the scenery. The loons serenaded us while we sat by the outside fire.

Josh, the owner, was quickly responsive to our inquiry and follow up questions. He was friendly and hospitable.

I look forward to coming back another time!

Excellent house in a magnificent location with views of the pond from both floors of the house.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house as a home base for a whitewater rafting trip on the Penobscot River at the end of September. We were pleasantly surprised with the amount of space the house and property offers guests. The house is in a much more secluded location than the pictures present, which we greatly enjoyed. There was plenty of parking and places for all 11 members of our group to sleep. We had 7 cars but the driveway had room for at least 4 more. The kitchen is fully equipped for all cooking needs. The two televisions, one for each floor, which come equipped with satellite tv service are perfect for catching up on weekend sporting events. The WIFI works all throughout the house and did not present us with any issues. The second floor back porch is perfect for star gazing at night and coffee sipping in the morning. By far the highlight for us was the large outdoor patio area. It is much larger than the pictures made it appear and is a perfect level surface for tailgating games (kan jam, corn hole, etc). The patio area has an awesome metal fire pit and the owner provided nearly a full cord of wood for us to burn. The canoe and kayak equipment is in great shape and is easily accessible in an outdoor storage container. We used the grill one night but found that one of the burners was not working properly which extended amount of time to cook everything. Other than that we have no complaints about this amazing property. We would certainly return to this great place for another relaxing weekend of hanging with friends. This place is perfect for multiple families, groups of couples, or just large groups of friends to gather and enjoy the views of the pond, calls of the loons, and to behold the magnificence of the stars at night. We highly recommend this property to anyone interested due to it's cleanliness, location, upkeep, as well as the availability responsiveness of the owners. All in all a great place to stay.

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.
