Car: Necessary

The Dock House offers a private, idyllic setting, yet you are surrounded by Acadia National Park and the opportunity to hike, bike, swim, sail, or just relax and get away from it all. I really enjoy taking a sunset cruise over to Islesford and having a gourmet meal in the charming restaurant right on the water.


Owner info

About the owner: Hi, My name is Mary Grace and I manage this truly special property. The warmth of the wood and the open space welcomes you as soon as you step inside. You'll feel right at home and be ready to throw some lobsters in the pot before you know it.

Why the Owner Chose Bernard:
I am originally from Long Island, NY and have been blessed to live in the MDI region for many years. The Dock House just epitomizes Maine and the joys of escaping to Vacationland!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If the sound of the ocean, the cry of the seagulls, the smell of salt air, and being completely surrounded by nature with all the comforts of home sounds appealing to you, then The Dock House is your next vacation destination!
