  • Excellent Family Get-away!

    "One word.....WOW! This was our first family vacation to Maine and it was unforgettable! The Cottage on the Bay was heavenly with its breathtaking views of the bay! We enjoyed kayaking and canoeing everyday and enjoying the serenity and beauty of the surroundings. It was fun to watch the curious harbor seals in the bay and see the bald eagles flying overhead as we paddles through the water. We have never experienced such a peaceful, relaxing vacation. The cottage was gorgeous, immaculate, and perfect for our family. It was well decorated and so well stocked with kitchen supplies, pantry staples, cleaning products, condiments, paper products etc. Tina even had yummy blueberry muffins waiting for us upon our arrival as well as fresh picked blueberries and smore's supplies which we promptly enjoyed by the outdoor grill/fireplace. The Cottage by the Bay is a quick drive to the quaint town of Ellsworth, Maine where we enjoyed the Main Street shops, Jordan's snack bar (great burgers, shakes, and ice cream), as well as the scenic Tidal Falls. It was also conveniently located (45 minute drive) to Acadia National Park which is heaven on earth!! We hope to come back to Maine someday and we will definitely stay at the Cottage on the Bay."

  • Seamist getaway

    "The Seamist cottage apartment in Bass Harbor was perfect for us. Marc responded immediately to the two times we needed help and even gave me a place to store my bicycle out of the rain. We particularly enjoyed the skylight and the Jacuzzi. It was just the right size for two people. We enjoyed hiking, biking and walks to and along the ocean. A handy grocery store was only 1.5 miles away. The apartment was equipped with all the things we needed to enjoy our 9-day visit. We visited at the height of the Autumn colors and were treated to the island at its best. Can't wait to get back."

  • Second visit was as wonderful as the first

    "Beautifully restored, historic house makes you feel a real part of this charming, low-key, friendly town. The proximity to Schoodic Point for biking, birding, photography, and ocean watching is wonderful. We didn't even go to Acadia on MDI this year - Schoodic has what we value most (beauty, outdoor activities) without the crowds."

Frenchboro Travel Tips

Frenchboro Vacation Rentals Offer a Peaceful Getaway

Located in Blue Hill Bay, Frenchboro is the perfect destination for those seeking a peaceful getaway from their everyday lives. One unique aspect of Frenchboro is that it is comprised of several islands. These islands are: Harbor Island, Crow Island, Long Island, Mount Desert Rock, Little Duck Island, Great Duck Island, Black Island, Placentia, the two Green islands, Drum Island, and Pond Island. Each island offers a friendly, small-town atmosphere, and there are several Frenchboro lodging options for you. One perk of choosing Frenchboro vacation rentals is that you will have much more privacy than a hotel, which will make you feel more at home during your trip.

Escape the Bustle

If you are looking to escape the bustle of life and want some privacy during your vacation, then Long island, which is one of the Frenchboro islands, may be a great choice. This town has a modest population but boasts brilliant scenery. This is one of the few historic fishing villages left in Maine, so be sure to plan some time for fishing during your stay with Frenchboro vacation rentals. You might want to bring your own fishing gear along on your vacation to store at your Frenchboro lodging when you aren't out on the water.

Sample the Local Flavor

A main attraction in Frenchboro is an annual Lobster Festival. This festival has been held in August in recent years and is a great opportunity to sample some delicious seafood while mingling with the residents that live near the Frenchboro vacation rentals. You may also want to dine out at Lunt & Lunt Lobster Company during your stay in Frenchboro. Lunt's is known for its seafood options but has limited hours so be sure to call ahead from the Acadia cottages before going there.
