We spent our third week here this August and have signed up for next year. I can't imagine a more relaxing week. The property is very private and lake is beautiful. The Southwest exposure makes a sunny and warm property. So close to Acadia or other coastal towns for day trips, but there's no need to leave the property. We have enjoyed walking along the local lake-front roads. Nice to just hang out and read, swim out to the raft, star gaze and listen to the loons at night. Fantastic place. I look forward to it every year and have yet to get enough.
This place is a GEM.
If you're thinking of staying do it.
We have had the pleasure of staying at this great vacation home several times over the years and can't say enough good things about it. Lovely waterfront, our grandkids were quite taken with the beach area and water; we all enjoyed using the paddleboat; canoe and kayaks everyday while we were there. Swimming to the swim float was a great milestone for our youngest- to accomplish while there. The place is very comfortably furnished; has everything you could want for preparing meals and we always hate to leave. Campfires at night were a ritual for us. Can't wait to go back again next summer..........
The branch lake cottage was very nice, and quite. The location is very close to the BGR airport, and not too far from Bar Harbor. The cottage has almost everything you need except Wifi and a washer/dryer. The property was clean and warm.
The welcome book was very nice and informative.
I would recommend to couples.
My husband and I spent a weeks vacation here. After a 10 hour drive, the first thing we did was walk around to the lakefront, and when I saw the view, my relaxation began immediately. The pictures of the lake only give you a glimpse. BEAUTIFUL lakefront. We enjoyed fishing off the dock, we went canoeing, kayaking and paddlebooting, swan one afternoon, water was chilly and even at 77degrees, the air had a chill as well, we had a campfire a couple nights, the lake is so quiet at night and oh, so many stars. The cottage has such rustic charm, everything I needed was there. The beds were quite comfortable (the guest bungalow is perfect for afternoon naps). We took in the sights at Bar Harbor and Acadia NP, also the shops in Ellsworth, Finns' Irish Pub was an excellent lunch, the Main St shops were expensive but great window shopping. It just seemed, when we were out, we couldn't wait to get back to the cottage and enjoy the lakefront relaxation. We had beautiful weather for just chillin' outside. The sunsets here are gorgeous, took a picture every night because each was in its own way, beautiful. I would definately go back, next time bring some more people, we want to share our experience with others. All in all, we loved it here.
Property is 1/2 hour from Bangor International Airport, 1/2 hour from Acadia National Park/Bar Harbor. Take in the best nature has to offer on our crystal clear lake, nearby seacoast, or hike the many nature trails in Acadia.
