Quaint, quiet, and relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent a week on Georges Pond and had a great time kayaking, swimming, exploring the woods, and having nightly Smore making extravaganzas. We even ventured to Bar Harbor twice! (Highly recommended if you stay here.) While the majority of the family time was spent in the main house, my husband and I slept in the camp next door with our little guy. It was a great experience for us all.

Nice lake cabins

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from one week vacation in Maine. The cabins by the lake are great for our group of 12 people with little children. The lake is great for entertain. The cabins have everything we need to stay. We used washer and dryer almost everyday since the kids get themselves wet in the lake and on the beaches. It is a decent driving distance to Acadia Park. We always came to the cabins for dinner. We will definitely come back if we visit Acadia again.
