About the Property

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 5-6)

Treat yourself to time in a tranquil vacation retreat that has 300 feet of private ocean front with a dock out our back door. The home we call the 'Avalonia” is located on three private acres and only 2 miles to the entrance to Acadia National Park. The two bed room unit is on the second floor and is separate for the main house. The property is peaceful and charismatic, yet is close to all the attractions that make Mount Desert Island one of the most visited National Parks in the USA. This new contemporary house is located on a picturesque and protected deep water cove where mussel beds and crabs are waiting to provide your dinner.

We don't use the HomeAway’s book it now feature. It may provide instant gratification (like ordering a book at Amazon) but the automatic messages are cold and impersonal. That does not reflect who we are. We like to be in communication with our guests so we can answer questions for them and at the same time our guests get to know us a little and therfore know what to expect in the home they will rent. Call us old fashion! More importantly using "Book it now" doesn't allow you to read the contract we require before you have to commit 50%. And without a contract neither you nor we are protected.

50% deposit to hold booking. Remaining 50% and cleaning to be paid 3 weeks prior to rent date. A separate check for the refundable deposit to be sent at same time.


Owner's cancellation policy:

50% refund for cancellations more than 7 days before check-in date.

100% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.


Don't forget your vacation protection! Get protected now

Adding our Vacation Protection services can make sure your getaway goes smoothly, no matter what. We offer Cancellation Protection and Damage Protection so you can truly relax.

Protect your payments in case you need to cancel.
Travel with peace of mind.
Ensure you're prepared in case of accidental damage.
