Nestled in the woods of Maine,is our haven for quiet, private, relaxation on the ocean cove. Great Ledge House is a retreat house for those of you looking for Maine's slogan, 'The way life should be,' ...you can find it at the Great Ledge House.

Great Ledge House vacation rental is located 5.5 miles from Ellsworth, Maine, the gateway to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, and Mt. Desert Island. Enjoy your Maine vacation at our beautiful house for rent either by the week or for long weekend retreats.

Our getaway house will someday be our retirement home. But until then, we hope to extend the opportunity to you to have a comfortably delightful place to stay in the beautiful state of Maine.

Great Ledge House is down a road leading out onto the Great Ledge peninsula. This peninsula goes out into Frenchman Bay, which then opens out to the Atlantic Ocean. The tides are very

extreme this far north and the coves in front of our house and off our little peninsula fill up at full tide; and then the water recedes completely at low tide to show the mud flats.

The constant tidal changes enhance the bird life in our area.

The house is located 5.5 miles outside of Ellsworth, Maine. Ellsworth is a busy community which provides the jump off point out to Mount Desert Island where Bar Harbor, Maine

and Acadia National Park are located. Bar Harbor and Acadia are 13 miles from the house. When you visit, don’t miss the more northern part of Acadia National Park, which

is farther up Route 1 from Ellsworth, and is known as The Schoodic Peninsula. The “Schoodic” provides some of the best coastal Maine scenes there are to be seen.

One of Maine’s true assets is its people. You will find them friendly, casual, and helpful. Have a restful visit, and let us know how we can improve your stay at our Great Ledge House the next time you can come!

With warm regards,

Sarah and Michael Ciampa

About Sarah & Michael

Michael&Sarah purchased the property to fill a life long love with the coast of Maine. Michael designed and built the house.

Sarah & Michael purchased this House in 1996

Why Sarah & Michael chose Lamoine

We chose this location because of the endless beauty we find looking out at the tidal water view. We love the easy driving distance to Acadia/Bar Harbor, as well as the charming 'Schoodic' area and the endless amount of hiking trails and coastal towns to discover. We also love the close proximity to the "city" of Ellsworth. It has great shopping and restaurants, museums and an activity local community.

What makes this House unique

It is quiet and relaxing. We enjoy walking over to our private tree lined granite ledge peninsula that juts out into the cove. We have picnics, view the birdlife, meditate and simply unwind.

Great spot to lay out a blanket on the rock shore: have a picnic, or meditate, or just enjoy the bird show over the picturesque Maine water scene. The pine trees really do come all the way down to the water.

                                                            Lovely cabin in the woods.

                                                            Jean O.-

                                                            Very pleased with our accomodations. Cute cabin, beautiful views and well equipped.

                                                            Beautiful and private

                                                            Jackie H.

                                                            We had a great stay - wish we could have stayed longer. It was so wonderful to be in the woods surrounded by water . We enjoyed watching the sun rise and peaceful breakfasts on the porch . Great location so easy to get to Acadia and Ellsworth yet very private .

                                                            Lovely, cozy, escape

                                                            Paxton B.

                                                            Stayed here for a few nights with my two teenagers and we all loved it so much. While not exactly next to Acadia, we spent full days hiking there and found the peaceful, petty home worth the few extra minutes. It is lovely to wake up in the loft and see the sparkly cove through the trees. I hope to come back soon.

                                                            We had a wonderful time! So relaxing and peaceful and about half hour drive from Acadia

                                                            Christina S.

                                                            We had a wonderful experience! So relaxing and peaceful- only half hour drive from Acadia.

                                                            We loved hanging out on peninsula across the street

                                                            Loved the accommodations.

                                                            I would replace the loft mattress, very uncomfortable. The couch was very comfortable. There is no smoke alarm upstairs.

                                                            Great Place in the Woods with View/Access to Tidal Bay

                                                            Frederick B.

                                                            We had a wonderful stay at this property. The owners allowed complete access to all the amenities including a well stocked kitchen. It was cool watching the tide creep in and out of the bay either by the shore or off the spacious deck. The cabin is modern with a rustic feel. The loft bedroom's narrow spiral staircase takes a little practice to access it and there is another bedroom with easy access on the main floor. If you are looking for a great place to stay in Maine, we highly recommend it!

                                                            Thank you Fred for taking time to comment on our Great Ledge House.

                                                            Hope you will visit the coast of Maine again soon.
