About this lovely house. It was put up in 2006. I will never forget our first guest saying, "This house is beautiful! I mean REALLY beautiful!" Just last year someone said it looks like it has never been lived in and asked if it had been recently remodeled.
The vaulted ceiling and flowing design allows the southern exposure the opportunity to fill the kitchen, dining room and into the living room with warm sunlight. There is an overwhelming sensation that comes with the peace of being in fresh, open spaces.
By using the back entrance, you will enter through the kitchen. The cabinets are beautifully constructed of real maple, the wood flooring in the dining room and hall were constructed to match.
When you walk into the living room or any of the bedrooms, you will find that they still look like they did at the time the house was purchased. Even the carpeting shows very little, if any, wear. (The quality of this home far in exceeds my own. It is truly beautiful in both design and construction.)
Sitting on the deck you can look at a field of meadow grass and wild flowers. A couple that stayed with us in June of 2015 told us how much they enjoyed watching as many as three deer in the field while having their morning coffee. Since then, I have had numerous guests also mention how beautiful the deer are. At night, guests enjoy gazing at the Milky Way while listening to the soothing and unmistakable call of owls.
Located amidst Acadia National Park properties, there are endless recreational possibilities. Right from the house, a 15 minute walk puts you on some of the park's roads and trails, giving you access to nearby mountains and three different ponds. An ocean boat launch is only 2 miles away. Bass Harbor Lighthouse, (one of the most photographed in Maine), seafood restaurants, Bar Harbor, and the Swan's Island ferry are just a short drive. After a full day of activity, you can return for a relaxing whirlpool - jetted bath, enjoy a movie, or have a glass of wine on the deck. The house is fully equipped with everything you need to relax in comfort.
We have completely filled one guest book and have started a second. In them you will find many things our prior guests enjoyed doing and where to dine. You can use the comments to get helpful hints on everything from which restaurants are the best to which hikes had the most beautiful views and which ones they found difficult. Please take a few minutes to read just some of the reviews. As you can see, we strive to provide everything you need to have the best vacation ever.
