Overview

About the property

Truly Impeccable Renovation Makes the Most of Natural Light and Fun Colors!

Maine is called 'Vacationland' - it's even printed on the license plates! Mt. Desert Island, home of Bar Harbor & Acadia National Park, is an incredibly beautiful place where people come to relax, to play & to appreciate all that nature has to offer. 'The Birches at Acadia Retreat' has been created so that you & your family can stay in a wonderful & comfortable environment while you explore & experience all the beauty that surrounds you! Our charming, newly renovated cottage has tons of new windows, beautiful flooring & carpets!The fixtures & appliances are shiny & modern! This adorable place is beautifully maintained & lovingly appointed with great attention to detail. We have a bright, open floor plan where the living room, dining area & kitchen share one big space with a huge vaulted wood ceiling . The bedrooms are comfy, cozy & oh, so cute!! The 4+ acres provide a beautiful, secluded setting where you can enjoy the solitude & the fresh Maine air & lots of beautiful birch trees.

Major Renovation for this Vacation Rental!: This is only the third season that this home is being offered as a weekly vacation rental! The last time I opened a new rental it was so appealing that a very happy couple from Syracuse return every summer for a two week stay for what is now 10 consecutive years! Call today and make arrangements to enjoy this wonderful little home and it's picturesque location! I must say that the birch trees are beautiful!!

About Lorie Wiebrecht

I was born in Bar Harbor and my entire family lives or works only 5 minutes from our rental homes. My husband was born in Wisconsin and he fell in love with MDI the first time I took him there in 1996. He knew even before I did that we MUST have our own property there so that we would always have an excuse to go north whenever we could!

Mt. Desert Island is such a beautiful place - we both are so thankful that we can experience it many times a year and I must say that we are struck by the beauty and the solitude every time we go 'home.'

We hope that you truly have a wonderful time whether it is your first experience or you have been visiting for 20 years.

My Dad's motto is...'If you come to Maine once it won't be your last time.' Of course he is pretty bias on the subject - having lived in Bar Harbor all his life! I wish everyone could get one of his Island tours-they are awesome to say the least!

He started working as a chauffeur at age 15 and he can tell some stories. He and my Mom owned several restaurants and motels and even developed the largest campground on the Island, Bar Harbor Campground which my youngest brother now manages.

Seems like our family has been in the hospitality trade forever and...with all that experience we have certainly learned how to take good care of our guests!
