Ellsworth cottage description

Idyllic, well maintained, classic Maine cottage on crystal lake - lovely knotty pine interior. incl bar. Near Acadia, Bar Harbor, Schoodic Point & numerous other great day trip destinations. Unlimited activities at the lake incl. wooded trails, beaver pond, nearby green for ball playing, etc., basketball hoop, etc. Very private. Located at the mouth of a brook right on edge of a cove of this beautiful lake Has a beach & float, a row boat, a canoe and 2 kayaks. Great swimming, including for small children. This is one of the cleanest, clearest lakes in Maine. New deck, new bathroom & new windows, remodeled work area in kitchen. Cozy bedrooms. Great sunsets

Nature at the door: A 'magical spot', the 'best vacation we ever had' are phrases that you will see in the guest book at our cottage (or camp as they are called in Maine). Our spot is secluded and right on the water. The temperature of the water in summer is just right and the quality of it is close to drinking water. Loons, various kinds of ducks as well as eagles, comorants, kingfishers and blue herons are always someplace or other in the vicinity. As a matter of fact, you don't have to leave the dock to see them as they normally make daily passes by our place.

Activities away from the cottage: Your days can be filled with any number of fun activities ranging from a tour of beautiful Acadia National Park or a day trip to innumerable neat coastal destinations. The nearby golf course which overlooks beautiful Phillips Lake is something to try for golfers. The Lucern Inn at the same location & with the same view is a great place for dinner. There are several other great restaurants in Ellsworth or in the Bangor/Brewer area. Two places in Ellsworth of note are the Union River Lobster Pot and Finn's Irish Pub. We can also put you in touch with a lobster fisherman where you will get the best deal around on lobsters caught that day if you want to have lobsters at 'camp'. We'll even treat you to your first four if you buy them from our friend.

Activities at the Lake: An early morning or late afternoon kayak ride will bring you in touch with nature. If they can pull themselves out of the water, kids will enjoy catching frogs. turtles and tadpoles in the brooks that run nearby. Basketball in our yard and other kinds of ball on the green just across the road is an activity for all ages. Joggers will enjoy the various roads around the lake for their daily runs. For those who fish, rowing out 50 - 100 yards or across the Cove to the rocks and going after bass with artificial worms or a Rapala at dusk might be rewarding. There's nothing wrong with just reading a book on our great deck at water's edge either. With appropriate caution, you will enjoy a bonfire on the beach at night under the Milky Way, Big Dipper and North Star plus a few million other celestial bodies.

Nature walks - eagles, cormorants, blue herons, etc. Fish for bass, salmon, lake trout, perch, pickerel. Then listen to the loons at night under millions of stars.
