About Andrew Pierce
The property and the surrounding area are very dear to me and my family. In 1994 we donated thousands of acres to the State of Maine for a Maine State Land Reserve which is now enjoyed and respected by enthusiastic visitors. We work hard to keep our remaining private peninsula pristine and in complete respect to the natural beauty of the area. Andrew grew up in the Bangor and Downeast area and has a strong connection to the Acadia region.
Andrew Pierce purchased this Cottage in 1933
Why Andrew Pierce chose Cherryfield
The large private property has Homeaway listings #102874 and #4017223. Over all area: Two proximal reserves have been designated here: 1,940 acres east of Donnell Pond and 4,274 acres northeast of our lake. The mountains and lakes formed by the Tunk Mountain Pluton constitute one of the most distinctive landmarks of the East Coastal Region. The two reserves include mid-elevation (~1,000 foot) summits of Tunk Mountain, Black Mountain, and Caribou Mountain as well as Tilden Pond, and Little Long Pond.

Great place and very quiet. Close to Acadia and other state parks. Great amenities it almost feels like an outdoor recreation resort than just a cabin.
Wonderful peaceful retreat
My wife and I vacationed here for the first time in early October. Warmer than normal temperatures allowed us to enjoy the beauty of the beach and lake and peacefulness of the wooded property. Andrew was great providing information beforehand and Bob, the caretaker, was great while we were there. We're already planning our return for next year.
Beautiful, relaxing getaway!
Spring River Lake and this cabin are absolutely wonderful. From the clear waters to the private setting- it had everything we were looking for. We loved using the kayaks to explore the lake and hearing the call of the loons each day. Having the private beach cove was perfect- we enjoyed sitting in the chairs at the water's edge and watching the beautiful sunsets!
Our cabin was clean and well stocked with everything we needed to make meals. The bed in the master was quite comfortable! Acadia and the Schoodic peninsula were very close drives and we enjoyed being able to visit them, even though the setting we had at the cabin was our favorite.
Andrew was an amazing host who joyfully gave us great advice before and during our trip. His communication was always quick and thorough! He even did his best to make sure we could have a bit of wifi connection for work emails. Thanks so much!
What a Great Vacation can't wait for next year.
The cabins were perfect! Quiet, private and well kept. Plenty of things to do in and around the lake. The water is crystal clear and the fishing, kayaking and canoeing kept the kids entertained all week. If you want a place to unwind away from it all and relax, This is paradise! What a great experience!
Don't just go see Maine foliage and wildlife, live in it for a week. This cabin is warm, comfortable and convenient to Acadia National Park, Lubec and Ellsworth. We will be back.
A return to a simpler way of life...
There are two kinds of vacations- ones where you go, go, go, and ones where you just relax. This was one of the most relaxing weeks we've had in a long time. The cabin was spacious and clean- plenty of room for the two of us. The beach and the lake were just a few steps away- the beach was spotless and the water clear and delightful. It was a week spent reading, talking, knitting, eating seafood, exploring the lakes (there are a bunch around!), hiking up Tunk Mt. (you can see Cadillac Mt. from the top!), swimming, fishing, and exploring the coast. We went to Acadia a couple of days, and it was so crowded that we couldn't wait to get back to the solitude of Spring River Lake...
Andrew (the owner) and Bob (the caretaker) were great to work with- prompt and responsive when I had questions.
If you are looking for non-stop excitement- go to Disneyworld. If you are looking to spend a week living life the way it was meant to be- fresh air, exercise, good food, restful nights, and a fire in the fireplace when the sun goes down...stay at Andrew's cabin. I guarantee you will NOT want to return to work the following Monday.
Ideal spot to relax while enjoying Maine's seacoast, Acadia and surrounding wilderness. One-of-a-kind beach! Few if any completely private fresh water beaches exist like this in New England, especially with such easy access to Acadia National Park and other immediate natural adventures.
Other Activities: All motorless water sports. HIKING. KAYAKING, boat cruises or tours from Bar harbor (i.e. Diver Eds)
