**Please note: The calendar listed on this page only pertains to Mobile Home rental. The calendar pertaining to Cabin rental can be found in VRBO listing #350709
Near Acadia National Park, and a thousand feet off the main road, enjoy the seclusion of our two bedroom mobile home in Franklin, Maine. It boasts two additions, front and rear, with nearly 800 square feet of living space. Our one room guest cabin is also on the property. Either may be rented individually, or both can be rented together if you have a large party. There is enough room to bring the entire family and your dog is welcome too. Spend the day nearby at the National Park or perhaps shopping in Ellsworth, Bangor, or Bar Harbor and then return from those busy areas to the quiet seclusion of this location. On the way home maybe you can pick up some lobster or clams from one of the local sellers to enjoy in quiet comfort.
Our home has been in our family for at least twenty years, with the mobile home serving as the main, year-round, residence. It shares the six acres it is located on with our one room cabin, which is also available for rent (see vrbo listing #350709 and the availability calendar). The mobile home and cabin are completely separate from the other for added privacy.
If you decide to visit with us in late June or early July, it's likely that wild strawberries will be available, they seem to grow everywhere. Our blackberries arrive in August, so you can walk outside and pick some for your morning cereal.
If you should decide not to stay with us but do vacation in the area, please visit the Maine many visitors miss. The small towns like Franklin deserve a visit. They are rural and beautiful, with rolling hills and giant lakes ... with forest that seems to go on forever and touch the sky. Remember to bring your camera!

Great quiet stay in the Maine woods
Great quiet stay in the Maine woods
We had a great time at this location. Very quiet and just what we needed to "unplug". Our hosts were amazing and advised us on some great places to see in the area, and it was a great spot for getting to Acadia National Park and other points along the coast. Our dogs also had a geat time in the woods (Woof!).

Owner response: We appreciate very much your kind comments and have enjoyed having you every time you visit. We think that really great vacations are the ones that let you 'unplug', and our secluded property allows that to happen easily. And even with this kind of seclusion we're still only fifteen minutes from Ellsworth, a drive that allows one to see the coastline of the Maine we love. Even after thirty years in this area, we still discover new things, places to go, and things to do. Thanks again for visiting, we hope to see you again soon.

Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
Franklin is rural and the area is incredibly beautiful. It is close enough to larger towns to allow ease of shopping and entertainment, yet is far enough to allow peace, quiet and seclusion. My family has been vacationing in Franklin for at least 25 years.
The Unique Benefits at this Mobile Home:
Since our residence adjoins this property, you will be able to meet us and we will be available to answer questions and attend to problems should anything require attention. We want your stay to be as comfortable as possible so you can enjoy your visit. We enjoy fishing and boating on some of the local lakes and Union River Bay. The 'bean suppers' and breakfasts run by the local community organizations, like the Eastbrook Grange, should not be missed. There is always opportunity for wildlife and bird watching on our property. We have left it as undisturbed as we can, because it is not only our home, it belongs to the wildlife too.
