Book this three-bedroom cottage on this spruce-covered spot in Frenchman Bay, well ahead of time. The master suite has spectacular sea views, a four-poster bed, and a whirlpool. The wood-burning fireplace in the living room is cozy on foggy nights, while the wraparound porch makes for good afternoon bird-watching, when gulls and osprey swoop along the shoreline.

The Perfect Getaway
Can't say enough about how wonderful our stay on Spectacle Island was. Of course, Maine is beautiful, the hikes in Acadia were incredible, etc. etc... that goes without saying. But the hospitality that Jaime and AJ (and Ava!) provided was beyond compare. They clearly care deeply about the island and its guests, and constantly went out of their way to be sure that our stay was perfect in every way. We would stay at Spectacle Island again even if it were on a lake in the middle of Nebraska, just to enjoy the company of our wonderful hosts. The fact that SI is in the middle of one of the most incredible parks in the US just seems like icing on the cake.
Amazing. Awesome. And just nice people.
This was our second trip to Spectacle Island and it was even better than the first time. We stayed 2 weeks, instead of 1, we knew our hosts better, and we had family come and stay at various times. Our hosts AJ and Jaime couldn't possibly be more accommodating. Seals, puffins, porpoises, eagles and ospreys, we saw it all. We hiked at least 8 of the peaks in Acadia NP. We kayaked. We ate lobster and ice cream. We enjoyed a couple quiet days in when it rained. We toured the harbors. It was perfect. And we're booked for next year already. I can't say enough nice things about this property and our time there.
Also available is an Alden rowing shell, great for physical activity, 6 kayaks, a 16' day sailer, and endless opportunitys to take rides on the island launch
