Gorgeous Views, Gorgeous House

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family traveled from Richmond, VA, Washington DC, and Atlanta, GA to visit Maine for the first time for all of us. We all agreed we couldn't have chosen a more perfect spot! The views were always beautiful and ever changing- the whites of the misty night, the pale blues of the early morning, the vibrant blues of the sunny daytime, and the pinks and grays of the gorgeous sunset. The house was sunny and spacious complete with a well-stocked kitchen, games galore, and a linen closet to die for. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are less than an hour away to the north and the picturesque towns of Belfast and Castine are close to the south. Blue Hill is a quaint Maine town with a huge grocery store, gift shops, galleries and of course a lobster shack. If we go to Maine again, Twin Chimneys will be the place we'll stay!

Two Chimneys Stay for Three Couples

  • 5 of 5

Three couples shared the house for a week. We could not have chosen a more perfect house and location for our visit to Maine.

The house and setting were not only as described on the website but more beautiful in person. The house was very clean, large and comfortable for all of us. It was fully stocked with everything we could possibly need. The setting was beautiful. Close to the waterfront, wooded and secluded but still a close drive to town.

We found a variety of good restaurants in town and nearby. The location in Blue Hill allowed for day trips in every direction from Acadia and Bar Harbor to Stonington, Bucksport and beyond.

Our VRBO agent Karen was immediately available by phone and in person when we had a question. She provided information on restaurants and attractions in the area.

We all felt we picked the perfect place and would highly recommend Twin Chimneys.

Review of Twin Chimneys from Canada

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time I've rented from VRBO. The first was a remodelled stone farmhouse called "La Jaubert" near Viens France. That made our vacation in Provence an experience that I still remember. We knew when we pulled into the circular drive at Twin Chimneys and entered the front door into the bright central room with cathedral ceiling and multiple windows looking out on a view of Blue Hill Bay framed by tall pines and a lawn reaching down to the bay that we had found a similar unique place. The house was obviously professionally decorated and had an aura of understated elegance.

It is obvious that the owners have taken steps to ensure that all necessities of housekeeping were provided. There was a fully stocked linen closet, a china and glassware closet, and a laundry room with all manner of cleaning agents. We found it easy to prepare dinners for our group of eight in the modern kitchen with adjoining barbecue deck on several days, and otherwise made a day trip to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbour.

Management is in nearby Blue Hill, which makes it convenient to deal with any problems, but we did not have any.

The grand kids were occupied on the one rainy day with the stock of children's games provided in the common room. They no time at all to discover a “Narnia-like” secret passage to a small room full of children-sized furniture at the back of what was my bedroom closet, much to my chagrin. This must be a holdover from former owners of the house

In total, we had a wonderful time and would recommend Twin Chimneys to anyone.

The charming scenic village of Blue Hill is just two miles away from this wonderful home, located on a private lane, nestled among the pines, with a panoramic view of Blue Hill Bay, and your own piece of the rocky shoreline. You can enjoy the beach, watch the sailboats and and lobster boats go by, curl up with a book on the deck, or enjoy the sparkling stars in the night sky. The lawn is a great spot for a good game of Frisbee.

The village is 35 miles from Bangor International Airport or Trenton Airport, an hour drive from all the attractions of Acadia National Park, and close to the neighboring villages of the Blue Hill peninsula, including Castine, Brooklin and Deer Isle, each with their own history and activities. The village of Blue Hill offers a variety of restaurants from fine cuisine to a favorite lobster and clam shack. All the amenities you need can be found in the village- a grocery story, food co-op for organic items, a farmer's market in summer and fall, wine store, banks, an award-winning library, art galleries, churches, post office, Kneisel Hall Summer Music Festival, Marine Environmental Research Institute programs and cruises, steel drum outdoor concerts, and hiking up Blue Hill mountain.

Launch your kayak and paddle around the coves of the bay, greeting seals. The reversing falls in South Blue Hill are famous and worth a look - or a kayak ride if you dare. Take a bike ride along the small winding roads. The famous Wooden Boat school in Brooklin offers courses in sailing and boat-building. Antique shops and galleries can be found all over the peninsula. Blue Hill Heritage Trust offers well maintained and beautiful hiking and walking trails all over the peninsula. There is always something to do in any season!
