About Bob Jancewicz

Bob and Donna have owned properties on Flanders Pond since 1995. Trails End Cottage is next to the summer cottage they reside in so they are nearby should you have any questions about the premises or the area. Their main residence is only 20 minutes away.

Bob Jancewicz purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Bob Jancewicz chose Sullivan

Trails End Cottage is in a quiet, secluded area on a beautiful sand beach on Flanders Pond. Great fishing, hiking, biking, wildlife and more.

What makes this cottage unique

Step out your door onto the beach. Water is 30 feet from the Cottage. Daily views of Bald Eagles and Loons. An 80 mile long trail perfect for ATVs and Schoodic Mountain are within walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Trails End ( The Bunkhouse ) . The beach was great, accommodations very clean and adequate. Appliances are all new. The view from the Bunkhouse is great, only 50' from the water. We climbed Schoodic mountain. it was about 3 1/2 hours and not a hard hike. Views where spectacular ! Bob and Donna where great hosts. They were there when we arrived and went over everything. Be sure to take advantage of their offer of a pontoon boat ride and margarita's ! Unbelievable ! The port-a-potty was ok. It is what it is. We received our security depositback very quickly. We would recommend it to your friends. Thanks Bob & Donna !!!!!

Cozy cottage on peaceful pond

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Trail's End Cottage. It was perfect for the kids to enjoy the sandy beach and playing at water's edge. Hubby enjoyed fishing from the shore and dock, listening to the loons. Very relaxing spot, away from it all, but not far from Ellsworth or other activities. We were limited by the 2.5 year old twins, but anticipate returning when they are older. They especially loved the ride on the pontoon boat! Great time for all, highly recommend for anyone not scared off by the outside shower or port-a-potty.

Love our stay at Trail's End!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Trail's End Cottage! The beach was amazing! My grandchildren swam, we brought our boat and took a tour of the Flander's Pond, and sat by the camp fire! We also loved being able to kayak! Being right on the water's edge is just what the doctor ordered and we hated to leave!

Our family had a wonderful time, we especially loved the beautiful beach, swimming and kayaking.

  • 5 of 5

A great spot for our family of 4, kids ages 6 and 9. The cabin was cosy and had everything we needed, especially considering we like to cook on our vacations. The beach sand is nice, but you may want water shoes because there are mussels / shells in the water. We used this as home base for exploring Bar Harbor and Acadia, which is about a 45 min drive away, but we didn't mind the drive knowing that we were returning to such a pleasant place. Would definitely go back.

Lovely Family Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Such a nice little place! My husband & 2 children stayed here and greatly enjoyed our stay. The kids had a blast playing in the water and venturing out on the kayaks. Bob was even nice enough to take us, along with some of our visiting family members, out on his pontoon boat for a lovely ride on the lake. So quiet and peaceful!
