Property description

40 minutes to Bangor or Acadia National Park, 20 to Ellsworth. This new, modern, clean, lakefront house on a quiet, wooded, 4 acre site (not crowded next to other houses), is on Abrams Pond. Great swimming, fishing and boating can be had here. All located on a private dirt-road which allows for safe walking or biking. Very child friendly. The perfect spot from which to explore Downeast Maine.
The house is easily accessible by car, the last 1/2 mile down a car-friendly dirt road. On the main level are a deck, screened porch, kitchen/dining/living room, MBR/MB. Washer/Dryer. Fully equipped kitchen with new 5-burner gas stove and dishwasher. Upstairs are office, bedrooms and another bath. On the lower level is a play room with sliders and french doors to a partially covered patio area . A fire-pit and large yard for outdoor play. Private dock for swimming and boating. Cottage rental includes two-seat kayak, paddles and safety jackets. Linens & all towels provided.

Available May-November: Spring is the great awakening -- fishing and bird-watching are both at their best -- a chance to savor the long days without the summer crowds.
Summer hardly needs mentioning -- July 4th parades and fireworks, boating, swimming, hiking, fishing, relaxing, eating -- classic Maine!
Fall is for foliage (peaking around the second-third week of October) and festivals, as well as boating, swimming, hiking, hunting, etc.
Rents by the week (Saturday-Saturday). Hand-built by local craftsman, this house is truly one-of-a-kind.

Airy, bright, sky-lit layout: The house has a porch and deck on the main living level and a partially covered patio area on the lower level. There are multiple outdoor tables and seating areas, and a fire pit.

There is an open living room / kitchen / dining and screen porch area. High ceilings in living area and master bedroom and bath. Gas-burning stove in the living area, large windows for views of the lake and tall trees. Beautiful tile floors and new carpet throughout. Large master bedroom. There is a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher. Clothes Washer/Dryer on main floor.
Linens provided. Beach towels included!

When not used for sleeping, the Upstairs Bedroom is a very bright and welcoming extra living space. Upstairs has a TV (no cable), VHS and DVD players, as well as a Windows PC (PC for internet and some children's games are installed). Bring your game console system if you like.

All bedrooms have windows facing the lake.

Wireless broadband Internet in all rooms and reaches throughout the property. Surf the web on your phone or pad while sitting on the dock or floating in the kayak.

My parents bought this property in the early 60's: They were both teachers and had summer vacation free to live in Maine. As a result I vacationed and summered in the area for my whole child-life. I held jobs in the blueberry business both raking and on a farm receiving and transfer station. I grew to appreciate the abundant wildlife and natural beauty that this site and the surrounding area had to offer. I learned that Acadia National Park is the only National Park in the North East. By day, if it wasn't blueberry season yet, I swam in the lake, read (you'll have internet), hiked or biked down the dirt road or just generally communed with nature. The Owls, Loons, Toads and Cicadas are a nightly symphony.

Now I bring the kids back to do the same. They love to wander on the dirt road, swim, kayak, play ping pong, air-hockey and basketball, and have the nightly campfire and s'mores. All on a quiet and private 4-acre lake-front site.

It is a great location with easy access to Ellsworth, Bangor (I-95), Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

NOTICE: on Google Maps there are two Abrams Pond Roads. The road this house is on is really called Dickens Farm Rd., and is marked at the turn-off with a normal green street sign. Dickens Farm Rd. becomes a dirt road that goes down between two barns. Our driveway is 1/2 mile down the dirt road, on the right.

Eastbrook is close to Ellsworth, Bangor, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Close enough for easy access even during peak times, or you can remain at 'camp' and avoid the crowds altogether. Depending when you go you may not see any other people, around camp and the lake, all week. There is no better location in New England for outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, sailing, beach-combing, and fall foliage viewing.
