Acadia Area Private Cottage on Maine Coast

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 1 - 4 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This cottage is minutes away from activities and attractions at Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, and Trenton Airport, yet provides opportunity for private relaxation.

Enjoy a cozy cottage located among Maine's pine trees on the coast of Maine offering 1,000+ feet of water frontage. This is a housekeeping cottage offering two bedrooms, with queen size beds. There is one full bath. Well behaved pets are welcome, there is a $100 fee.

Imagine driving down a 1,600 foot water-lined, private drive from Seal Point Road in Lamoine. Your mind goes to the quiet, relaxing days before you. Picture yourself following the trail established around the 'point' or perhaps walking along the shore. Watching the seals lounge on sun-warmed ledges at low tide may be fascinating, also deer and wild turkeys may be seen. Bald eagles frequent the area. Observing the lobster fishermen 'pulling their traps' by visiting each bobbing, colorful buoy may catch your attention. Painting views of Schoodic Mountain pleases artistic visitors.

Visit and enjoy!

4-night stays are considered, call owner.

Acadia Area Private Cottage on Maine Coast

Quiet pine woods, salt air, close to Acadia

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was conveniently designed and well kept. It sits by itself on a small promontory surrounded by water on three sides. It really fits two comfortable, four without much trouble, five would be a pinch. There's not much storage but the furnishings and beds are comfortable. We saw a bald eagle the first day, and our first-ever porcupines (a mama and baby), and there were flying squirrels at night. In just over half an hour you can be in Bar Harbor or Acadia National Park. Monday through Thursday was best for those places as they got much more crowded Friday and on the weekend. This was a great place to stay.

Beautiful location

  • 3 of 5

The location makes this place. Water all around and cool breeze blowing.

There were a couple of issues. Bathroom smells bad probably from the water leaking from either the washer or toilet. Garbage was full when we arrived and was never emptied while we were there. Tried to call but contact number was out of service. No email response either. Was going to use the nice new grill, but the old propane tank would not open. Rusted shut or just too tight. Could not get the TV to work. Some general maintanence is needed around the cabin.

I give it 3 stars because outside is a 5 and inside is a 2.

Rustic Cottage is quiet, private, away from people and has a water view

  • 3 of 5

I loved that this cabin was far away from people. It's in the woods and very quiet. I could smell the pine needles as I stepped out of my car to make my way to the cabin. The two separate bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs, added to the quiet and privacy of the cabin. I loved the quiet and tranquil atmosphere. If you want to get away from people and crowds, this is the place to be. The internet service is very poor, but the quiet, away from people atmosphere made up for poor internet service.

Our host recommended a local lobsterman to purchase lobster from. We took her advice and it was great!! We loved meeting him, picking out our lobster, learning more about lobster (soft vs. hard shelled lobster) and even more important, the price was reasonable. Do not leave this cabin without visiting the local lobsterman down the road. In fact, you should do this more than once cause now I'm sorry I didn't! He will cook it for you for .80 per lobster.

We had a few problems with the toilet the first few days. I was a bit freaked out over it. Our host was quick to respond, however. We had rain, so we had to wait for the weather to improve before local experts came to see if there was a clog in a line outside or if it was something else. We learned that there was not a clog, but an issue with the vent. I think as soon as she gets that fixed, any issues with the toilet will be resolved. We only had issues the first few days where the toilet would bubble like it had air in it. A couple of times, we couldn't flush it. But after two nights, it was fine.

The kitchen is minimally stocked. The host provides a lots of plates and bowls, but I thought it could be stocked better for guests like us who are flying in from out of state who do not eat out much. Foil, oil, spices, Ziploc bags, more oven cookware, and more importantly, more lobster utensils would have been nice. We had minimum lobster utensils. Someone must have stole the lobster tools because our host said there were several sets of lobster tools, some of which were metal which would have cracked the claws better than what we had. All we had was one plastic tool to crack the claw with and one set of tools to get the meat out. The plastic tool is not good quality at all! You need something harder to crack the lobster claws. Before you buy the lobster, make sure you have the tools to crack the shell of the claws.

Private, Peaceful, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was exactly want we expected. It reminded us of our family cabin in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, with a few extras. The washer/dryer came in very handy!

We enjoyed having morning coffee and an evening beverage down by the shore, taking in the smells of the ocean & forest, looking out over the cove with the lobster bouys and boats. Peaceful.

The downstairs bed was super comfy after long days of golfing (Kebo Valley:) and hiking on MDI. Bar Harbor was an easy 30 min drive from Lamoine.

There are racks to hang clothes and hangers in both bedrooms, there is an iron with a full-size board, 2 fans, a hairdryer, coffee pot, and a nicely stocked kitchen including wine and champagne glasses. :) The lobster pot is under the grill cover outside. (we found it too late)

We didn't use the TV or boom box so I can't comment on how those worked but the wifi worked fine. The cribbage board was nice to have since we forgot to bring ours.

My only negative would be that the bathroom was in need of some better cleaning around the outside of the shower. It had a (very slight) musty smell.

I have noticed from reading the other reviews that the owner takes care of everything mentioned so it shouldn't be a problem.

Over all everything was Great and we would Most Definitely stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend it!!

Quiet, but some problems

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is clean, quiet, and a short distance from the ocean. We had a problem with the plumbing. When we drained the kitchen sink, the toilet would gurgle loudly, and eventually, the toilet overflowed. We called the owner, and went out for the day. When we got back, the mess was cleaned, but the problem with draining sinks remained, we suspect that the septic tank was full. Also, the location of the TV is odd.

Absolutely wonderful!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is wonderful. It's the best of all worlds wrapped neatly in a little package. The cottage is charming and quaint. There were no surprises when we arrived. It was pictured on the site exactly as it looks. We spent most of each day down by the water on the rocks. You can sit on the rocks and the tide will come in and out and you never have to move. I enjoyed when it was right by my feet and I was still just relaxing. I can't even begin to tell you how relaxing it was.

True to everyone else's reviews we saw the lobster men, the seals, the deer, and the red squirrels. I saw a porcupine for the first time in my life. On our last day there, I was standing on a rock and out of a big pine tree, a Bald Eagle swooped down and then continued to fly away. It was so beautiful. I could almost have touched it because it was that close to me. Neila is a wonderful property owner and I would stay here again and again and again.

I honestly have nothing negative to say about my trip. It was everything we expected and SO MUCH MORE. It truly was the most wonderful vacation I have ever had and I can't wait until next year.

Thank you, Neila for a wonderful vacation!
