Lamoine house description

Nestled in the woods of Maine,is our haven for quiet, private, relaxation on the ocean cove. Great Ledge House is a retreat house for those of you looking for Maine's slogan, 'The way life should be,' ...you can find it at the Great Ledge House.

Great Ledge House vacation rental is located 5.5 miles from Ellsworth, Maine, the gateway to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, and Mt. Desert Island. Enjoy your Maine vacation at our beautiful house for rent either by the week or for long weekend retreats.

Our getaway house will someday be our retirement home. But until then, we hope to extend the opportunity to you to have a comfortably delightful place to stay in the beautiful state of Maine.

Great Ledge House is down a road leading out onto the Great Ledge peninsula. This peninsula goes out into Frenchman Bay, which then opens out to the Atlantic Ocean. The tides are very
extreme this far north and the coves in front of our house and off our little peninsula fill up at full tide; and then the water recedes completely at low tide to show the mud flats.
The constant tidal changes enhance the bird life in our area.

The house is located 5.5 miles outside of Ellsworth, Maine. Ellsworth is a busy community which provides the jump off point out to Mount Desert Island where Bar Harbor, Maine
and Acadia National Park are located. Bar Harbor and Acadia are 13 miles from the house. When you visit, don’t miss the more northern part of Acadia National Park, which
is farther up Route 1 from Ellsworth, and is known as The Schoodic Peninsula. The “Schoodic” provides some of the best coastal Maine scenes there are to be seen.

One of Maine’s true assets is its people. You will find them friendly, casual, and helpful. Have a restful visit, and let us know how we can improve your stay at our Great Ledge House the next time you can come!


With warm regards,

Sarah and Michael Ciampa

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 1996

                      About: Michael&Sarah purchased the property to fill a life long love with the coast of Maine. Michael designed and built the house.

                      Why Lamoine:
                      We chose this location because of the endless beauty we find looking out at the tidal water view. We love the easy driving distance to Acadia/Bar Harbor, as well as the charming 'Schoodic' area and the endless amount of hiking trails and coastal towns to discover.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      It is quiet and relaxing. We enjoy walking over to our private tree lined granite ledge peninsula that juts out into the cove. We have picnics, view the birdlife, meditate and simply unwind.
