About Paul Grindle

Chambers Oceanfront Cottages on Somes Sound was founded nearly 40 years ago by Don & Marilyn Chambers. They built their reputable vacation rental business on one of the most beautiful spots on Mount Desert Island. My wife and I (Paul & Ashlee Grindle) have been involved with many aspects of Chambers Cottages for several years, helping out behind the scenes, and learning the business. In 2012 we purchased Chambers Cottages, and we are very excited as we enter the 2017 season. As natives to the area, Ashlee & I take pride in the service and hospitality we provide. We are very proud and honored to continue in Don & Marilyn's footsteps, delivering quality, cleanliness, and anything we can do to make your stay the best possible! Putting forth our best efforts, our mission is to maintain the highest of standards and service which Don & Marilyn have provided for over 40 years.

Paul Grindle purchased this Cottage in 2012

                                                            Superb view, spotless accomodation, lobster pound at the dock.

                                                            This is our third vacation at sounderosa. The cottage is quaint, spotless and large. The huge deck overlooks Somes sound. You can buy lobster right at the dock. A great location for kayaking and short drive to biking and hiking trails. 5 stars!

                                                            We love this place!

                                                            Such a beautiful space.

                                                            So peaceful and serene.

                                                            Into nature's ear

                                                            We whispered our cheer

                                                            The house is beautiful and clean.

                                                            Paul and Ashlee were helpful, kind hosts

                                                            with tips on where to go.

                                                            We will likely return

                                                            While away we will yearn

                                                            Until then, try to keep it slow

                                                            Topside at Chambers Ocean Front Cottages - a great place to stay

                                                            Keith W.

                                                            My family and I absolutely enjoyed our stay at the "Topside" cottage at Chambers Ocean Front Cottages earlier this month (June of 2016). The Grindles are wonderful hosts and obviously put a lot of care into their properties. It is probably easiest to summarize our stay as a collection of points:

                                                            - the cottage was spacious and had more than enough room for our family of five to stay and not trip over each other

                                                            - the kitchen was well-furnished; we did not need any extra dishes or cooking implements

                                                            - the washer and drier worked great and with three kids, we gave them a workout

                                                            - the property is very quiet and private

                                                            - the views of the Sound and Sargent Mountain are breathtaking

                                                            - the cottage was very clean

                                                            - there is an IGA grocery down the road in Southwest Harbor, maybe five miles away (maybe closer)

                                                            - there are hiking trails just minutes of a drive away (I wouldn't mind walking, but some people might)

                                                            To summarize, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and are hoping to return again in subsequent summers.

                                                            Excellent vacation destination!!! We loved our stay in the Crow's Nest, Great views and our host Paul and his family are very accomindating to your needs, goes the extra to ensure that your vacation is what it should be. fresh live lobsters available at their dock, no need to travel to store or wharf. Cottages are clean and have all the comforts of home ready for when you arrive. Lots of viewable wildlife just outside the cottage seen deer and squirrel daily. I would recommend to anyone looking for a cottage close to everything the island has to offer and if you are a Lobster lover like me you just can't beat it. One of the most relaxing, layed back vacations we have taken, like we were the only people their. The quiet surrondings made for a satisfying time.Can't wait to return again.
