About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Our house is a timber frame home in the quaint coastal village of Lamoine, Maine. It was built in 2009-2010 by a local craftsman with environmental sustainability in mind. By incorporating items such as Forestry Stewardship Council certified timbers, dense-pack cellulose insulation, whole house fan for cooling, on-demand hot water heater, new Energy Star compliant appliances, even recycled glass stemware and re-purposed materials, guests can rest assured they are making as little impact on the planet as possible during their stay.

The house is comfortably furnished and can accommodate couples or families of up to 6 easily. The first floor has an open floor plan with a breakfast bar, dining table, living room and one full bath.

There is an outdoor shower for easy cleanup on returning from a day at the beach. The 3 bedrooms and second full bath are upstairs. One room has a queen bed, one has a full and the last has 2 twins. The well-insulated home is heated for year-round use.

Lamoine Beach, called one of 'Maine's Best Kept Secret Beaches' by Downeast Magazine, is a short 3-5 minute walk. Here you can explore nearly 2 miles of sand and gravel beach, hunt for shells and driftwood, launch a kayak or just enjoy the spectacular views of the mountains of Acadia National Park across the bay.

About Jack Jury

My wife and I have been vacationing in the Acadia National park area for nearly 17 years. We discovered the quiet coastal village of Lamoine in 2000. The more we came back, the more we knew this was a place for family vacation memories. Elizabeth, our 3 children and I are excited to now have a place of our own in the place we've enjoyed for so many years. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Jack Jury purchased this house in 2009

Why Jack Jury chose Lamoine

We chose Lamoine for it's proximity to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Close enough for easy access but we can remain at 'our beach' and avoid the on-island crowds if we so choose. There is no better location in New England for year round, outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, sailing, beachcombing, and fall foliage viewing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick note- we had a great time this week at your house. We loved the upgraded couches and the unexpected addition of wifi. We always enjoy our time and we have great memories of the house.

Stayed here twice--perfect home and location for exploring coastal Maine

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 kids plus our dog) have stayed here on two separate occasions (August 2012, and 2014). We simply love the house; its rustic yet modern, very clean and spacious. Its the perfect location; close enough to Acadia (though traffic on and off MDI can be a problem in August--go early!) but far enough away to feel very private and secluded. The beach at the end of the road is a favorite of ours---rarely crowded, and great for exploring. Beautiful views of MDI from the beach an added bonus. If we didn't want to explore a different part of the country, we would be back this year as well. Owners are great; very helpful.

Away from it all

  • 4 of 5

This house was wonderful. Secluded and remote but convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia. Steps from Lamoine Beach and only a half mile to Lamoine State Park. 15-20 mins to everything but feels like you're in the middle of nowhere. I enjoyed jogging up and back to the State Park several times during our stay. Watch out - some of the cars do speed a bit along the beach road; however the house is well off of the road and is quite safe.

We were greeted by deer when we pulled up the cabin from GA. The inside of the house is wonderful! So spacious with plenty of room for a large family. Plus a basement for extra storage if you need it.

Kitchen is equipped with everything. Owner has left many informational articles to help guests make their way around the area (restaurant suggestions, etc.) There is so much to do, we couldn't get it all in during the week. The house is equipped with Wifi. The TV did not have more than a few local channels...but we didn't drive 23 hours from GA to watch TV so it wasn't a big issue for us and I think the owner is looking to remedy that.

There is no cell phone service at the property (again wasn't an issue for us). We didn't want to be found :)

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything the owner described and more! The house was within walking distance from not only Lamoine beach but the state park. The property was new and clean. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you would need to prepare a lobster dinner to lunch for your family. Jack and Elizabeth were very accommodating. They were there to answer questions. We would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to get away and experience the Acadia National Park area without being in the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor.

Recent Stay.

  • 5 of 5

Great Home, near the Beach and Bar Harbor. Very secluded on Private Drive enabled the kids to ride there bikes around the house. Very peaceful property, very easy walk to Lamoine Beach. 15 to 20 mins away from Ellsworth. Would stay here again with the Family.
