Cozy cabin in a great location
The Boathouse is great place to stay for visiting the Acadia area. Acadia Nation Park and Bar Harbor are minutes away. Echo Lake is right down the street. Arax is welcoming and a great host. The property is beautiful and right on the water. The Boathouse is a comfortable stay for two!
Charming, peaceful, perfect!
The Boathouse was simply amazing, and Arax was a wonderful host! The boathouse itself was charming and perfect for my husband and me to spend a long weekend. We met friends that were sailing the area and it was large enough for the four of us to hang out on the porch and inside. The view and location are perfect. We were steps from the water and had a nice fire on the rocks at low tide. It was quiet and peaceful - with a red squirrel joining us on the porch for breakfast, a bunny in the front gardens, and two deer on the property in the evening. We even watched a seal swim by while sitting by the fire. We also used their kayaks to paddle around the sound.
Arax did not leave a single detail out of the planning and set up of the boathouse. Everything we needed was there. We did bring a hot plate and pot so we could cook dinner at the house - but that was all we brought. She had everything else we needed and even without a kitchen we were able to cook salmon, steak and corn on the grill and salt potatoes in the pot we brought.
If our travels bring us to Mt. Desert again, we will surely stay in the Boathouse. Thank you for a great weekend!!!
All reviews are so very much appreciated. It helps the homeowner immensely. Thank you for taking the time to write a thoughtful lengthy review and in truth I believe the red squirrel thinks he is the host! I love to share Mt Desert with one and all and I am thrilled you had a great time.
