Fantastic! Perfect location for exploring the best of coastal Maine.

  • 5 of 5

Great Ledge Cottage was the perfect home and location for our family. Every morning we had coffee and enjoyed the morning sunshine on the balcony overlooking the water. We went on adventures near Acadia National Park and spent a great deal of time exploring the Schoodic Peninsula (highly recommended). Gayle and Rob made sure we felt comfortable and had everything we needed to help plan our days, including a very informative binder with local trail maps of the Frenchman Bay area. The spacious layout of the home was ideal for our family of four and our two parents. The indor and outdoor environments were safe for our two little ones (3 and 1 years old) to explore and play. We had the most amazing time and can't wait to visit Maine again. It was definitely worth the 3200-mile round trip!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay at your home! Everything was just as it was pictured and we couldn't have asked for a better week. We loved being away from the town to get peace and quiet, but close enough where we could drive in as much as we pleased. Thank you again!

The way life should be

  • 5 of 5

We happened to be greeted by Gayle when we arrived. She was so pleasant and made us feel right at home. The house was very inviting and cozy, and bigger than expected. The backyard with the fire pit, chairs and hammock were perfect.

I suggest going to Lamoine State Park where you can fish for mackerel, and you will find local lobstermen who will sell you lobsters right off the boat if you ask.

Acadia National Park is breathtaking and only 30 minutes from the house.

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS FOR THE MOST RELAXING AND FUN FILLED VACATION. Separated from the hustle and bustle of downtown Bar Harbor, but close enough to enjoy daily. You really get the best Acadia has to offer in this wooded waterfront cottage.

About 12 minutes to Mount Desert Island and all the wonderful things the island has to offer, you are also close to the towns of ELLSWORTH, BUCKSPORT, and BLUE HILL. Enjoy Acadia National Park and Lamoine State Park or take a day trip to CAMDEN or BELFAST.

FOR THE KIDS: ACADIA FUN PARK which offers water slides, go carts, mini golf, and a ropes course, and also the zoo. The Oceanarium on MDI has a great touch tack for the kids to explore ocean creatures up close and personally as well everything you wanted to know about lobsters.
