Wish I had a longer vacation
Wish I had a longer vacation
I wanted to have a break from work, and take my family for a good time out. While browsing through the houses, I noticed the Pine Chalet, and it attracted me from the moment I saw it. I contacted Pat, and she really helped me out with the entire process and it was really smooth dealing with her. Paperwork was quick , and the house booked. I arrived at the location, to find firstly the house had a wooden name plate with my last name engraved on it. Inside, was a clean and welcoming house - and a welcome basket with homemade jam and awsome bread. Then, we started to tour the house. And, I wanted to spend my vacation in the house itself. It has been decorated with outmost care. Every little detail taken care of, to make my trip a memorable one. The house had entertainment options like family games and kids movies, extra linen and blankets, and amazing glassware/silverware. Maine - there is no time enough to enjoy it. In a flash, my vacation came to an end. I felt sad leaving the Pine Chalet, but at the same time had a wonderful time here with my family. I will definitely be visiting here again. Thanks Pat for everything.

Recommended for: Sightseeing, girls getaway, families with young children, adventure seekers, romantic getaway, families with teenagers.
The location was perfect. Plenty of room for 8 people. The inside stairs were very steep and only had a railing on 1 side. My son and his wife are in their forties and they found the stairs difficult and I in my seventies found them extremely hard to manuver. The outside stairs were easier to navigate. The house is very clean and had anything you could ever have wanted. The downstairs sitting area had no curtains and was a bit scary in the evening. I spent my evenings upstairs.

Why the Owner Chose Mount Desert:
We love this central location on Mt.Desert Island. The elevated wooded acreage is just minutes from the local villages...A short drive to Bar Harbor, easy access to the lakes on the island..and not far from the beautiful salt water beaches. The village landing on Somes Sound is located across the street from my nearby office in the charming historic village of Somesville...(home of the first settlers on Mt.Desert Island). The wooded acreage borders National Park acreage...
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
We enjoy the amenities, the wooded privacy , southern exposure and the proximity to all the island villages... Plus the convenience of two level living... GrampEBob designed and built this home in the mid 70's...We raised our sons in this chalet...until they left for college and we decided to move 'year round' to our cottage on Long Pond. We chose to keep this trendy home for our 'paying house guests' . We enjoy sharing 'our first piece of Maine' with people 'from away'. Let us know your vacation time frame so that we can save your spot for you. We'll put a welcome basket with GramEpat's goodies in the refrig, GrampEBob will hang up your name sign, crank up the heat and leave the lights on for your arrival. (Don't forget to bring your polar fleece jackets, back packs and hikin' boots !)
