Oceanfront Cottage on Frenchman Bay-Private Beach-Acadia National Park 2250.00wk

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

'Beau Se Jour' cottage was designed to be reminiscent of the shingle style cottages which have always been unique to Maine's seacoast.

Sunfilled rooms are tastefully decorated with vintage wicker, hooked rugs, and nautical accessories. Birch bark railings, a gas stone fireplace, and a moose-horn chandelier give this cottage a distinctive look and feel of an earlier time.

Enjoy relaxing on the comfortable, large eat-in screened porch with panoramic ocean and mountain views.

This beautiful setting is perched on Frenchman Bay, and has breathtaking views of Cadillac Mountain and Acadia National Park.

A rare opportunity to enjoy a private beach for swimming, clam digging, and long walks along the endless shore.

For additional information, please call or text us 518*573*7838 and we will get back to you quickly!

About Laura

We love Maine and know you will too! We will do our best to make your vacation in the Acadia Region special so that you go home with many wonderful memories.

We want you to feel at home and enjoy all that Downeast Maine offers, most especially the crown jewel; Acadia National Park, which is celebrating its 100th Anniversary in 2016. We invite you to come visit and explore a most special place in America.

During the cold, short days of winter, our thoughts turn to warm, sunny days... if you want a wonderful getaway unlike most others, we invite you to come visit our Tropical Island, Gulf front Cottage on "Little Gasparilla Island" in Southwest Florida.

Come explore the magical, barrier island accessible only by private boat (Or water taxi).

No stores, roads, cars or distractions other than the beautiful gulf, pristine white sandy beach, shells, sharks teeth and magnificent sunsets, (unlike any you have seen before).

You will almost feel as thought the island were your own as it is peaceful, quiet and most of all, unspoiled. Come experience Florida like you have never done before.

Our property is also on VRBO and if you would like to take a look, the property # is: 157312

We welcome you to both our Oceanfront Cottage in Maine and our Gulf front Cottage on Little Gasparilla Island.

Oceanfront Cottage on Frenchman Bay-Private Beach-Acadia National Park 2250.00wk
average rating of 4.98 based on 50 reviews

This oceanfront cottage is a spectacular find!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place -- roomy, with many updated features, and plenty of windows for great views -- and yet it maintains the cozy ambiance of an old-fashioned cottage. The setting is perfect -- near the end of a private dirt road, secluded among beautiful trees, and yet with spectacular views of the ocean and Mt Desert Island. The cottage also is fully equipped; I found nothing missing and was surprised by the thoughtfulness of the owners who provided even more than I could have hoped for. Yes, I recommend this place highly; it clearly lives up to all the rave reviews.

Beautiful setting, easy to unwind after a full day at Arcadia national Park. The home has everything you need for an easy stay and very clean. We enjoyed the gift basket.....pancakes, Maine maple syrup, blueberry preserves and Maine shopping bags. One thing I needed...more lighting in baths for us ladies that wear makeup. Beautiful home, thanks for sharing your home. As for Maine. Beautiful and the people of this beautiful state are the nicest, friendliest I have ever meet on vacation. Just a wonderful vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The house/cottage is so tastefully decorated and so homey. The owner provided you with much information about surrounding areas and restaurants. We wished we could have stayed another week! After exploring for the day it was such a warm place to return to each night. Beautiful house. Beautiful surroundings. What more could you ask for

Peaceful week at the Beau Se Jour!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week at this beautiful bayside cottage and can't say enough! The cottage is true Maine with amazing views in a private setting. We used the gas fireplace in the evenings and opened the doors during the day to feel the breeze off the water. Laura and Robert have a gem here, they are a wealth of knowledge about the area and have super recommendations. The cottage is beautifully kept, very comfortable with enough space to sit alone and read or to gather for a meal or play a game. We hiked daily in Acadia, only 30 minutes away, but were happy to retreat here in the evenings! We will definitely be back!!

Camp Beau Se Jour

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough nice things about our stay at Camp Se Jour. It exceeded our expectations from the moment we pulled into the secluded driveway. The cottage is something straight out of a magazine. The view of the bay was one of my favorite things. Whether it was drinking our morning coffee or stargazing, we spent a lot of time outside enjoying this serene property. We were so fascinated watching the difference between high and low tide. The owners are above and beyond helpful. From the moment I was interested in this property, pre-trip, during our trip and post trip we were given so many tips and there is a great deal of information provided in the cottage from hikes, boat tours, restaurants, rental companies etc. We loved staying in this quiet cottage. Even though we had to do some driving, we were so happy to come "home" from a busy day and get away from the crowds and crowded streets of Bar Harbor. If you need a place to get away from it all and surround yourself by the beauty of nature, this is the place to be!!!
