The perfect place for the perfect event.

  • 5 of 5

Sitting on the porch with our family (and brand new daughter in law) all looking out to the horizon at Acadia, I could not be happier. Maine Stay is comfortable, beautifully charming, clean, terrifically maintained and appointed. Laura, the hostess, was extraordinarily accommodating - thank you for being supportive of us hosting the wedding and reception of our son & daughter in law. All the flowers on the grounds added to the beauty. And if that wasn't enough, the timing was blessed to the point of being able to pick over five pounds of blueberries right on the grounds! Two pies, two tarts, a couple dozen muffins and many handfulls of blueberries later, we counted ourselves as the luckiest cheeseheads to ever wander into Maine. We are so grateful for our week. Thank you.

A truly special property

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed here with our three kids, ages 5, 8, and 12 and they all had a blast. There was so much to do on Newbury Neck between kayaking, exploring, biking, blueberry picking and swimming that we only made it over to Acadia once. The kids were especially surprised and delighted by the inflatable water slide that previous guests had left. I would highly recommend this for families who love to be active and outdoors. I would suggest stocking up on groceries beforehand, because it takes a while getting on and off the peninsula and driving to the store. Jenni was very gracious and very helpful. We are hoping to come back again!

Open Space, Peace & Quiet, Friendly & Helpful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

Our large family was drawn to The Maine Stay, looking for a week of peace and quiet, and this property delivered. The early 1900s farm house sits on 70 acres of open fields, meadows, lawn areas and dense woods with plenty of trails between the oceanfront found on both sides of the property. The house itself is spacious and the wrap around porch, along with a screened in area, was used often for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails and evening cocktails. The views are tranquil and attractive. The nearby firepit was also a nice place to relax after a full day. The beds in the 5 bedrooms are clean & comfortable. Preparing meals was easy in the up to date kitchen and new gas grill on the porch. The internet was steady and reliable.

We took two, leisurely paced, twenty minute hikes to the shore on the backside. One of them was an hour before sunset and we enjoyed spotting loons and seals as well as the beautiful sunset over Blue Hill. We enjoyed the beach in the front of the property for swimming, beach combing and a spot to launch our kayaks. There was plenty to see in the waters right off the property, but we also took a one hour (one way) paddle to the town beach and nearby osprey nest at the radio tower. Another great kayak trip was around the peninsula to Jed's Island where we saw a huge bald eagle and a group of about 50 curious seals.

Trips to Bar Harbor & Acadia Ntl. Park were easy, about an hour, and always worth a visit. We also enjoyed the local offerings, like PugNutz Ice Cream Shop and Perry's Lobster Shack. We brought our energetic dog who seemed to enjoy the area as much as we did. There was a great kennel, Creature Quarters, 20 minutes from the house to for a day of doggy daycare.

Just as importantly, our hosts, Laura & Jenni, were very friendly, helpful and quick with a response to our questions and concerns. From reserving the property, to check in and check out, things ran smoothly and seamlessly. Thank You!

Gorgeous Spot

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for spectacular vistas, this property and has a gorgeous view of the water with Mt. Desert Island in the distance! The house is old but clean and has most of the amenities you would expect, including a well-stocked kitchen. The downstairs bathroom is the only room that seemed to be in need of a really good scrub.

We spent most of our time outside of the house playing in the yard, sitting on the front porch, and exploring the shore and surrounding woods. My kids delighted in picking blueberries from the property in mid-to-late July. Acadia National Park, Perry's Lobster Shack, and nearby Ellsworth were favorite driving destinations. This is really a great place to "Get away from it all" and it was hard to leave, especially after many days of great weather. We'd love to come back again!

Quiet beauty

  • 4 of 5

Charming classic house with room for a big family and abundant outdoor space. Worth the drive away from the bustle, this nicely stocked house had lots of beds and common areas, but we likely the screened-in porch and paths to the water. It was a calm place to relax with access to the bay for kayaking and a little splashing in the water (albeit a little early in the season for the water to warm up when we went). While a little further from Bar Harbor than we'd anticipated, it wasn't a bad hop into the nearby towns for provisions and some nice restaurants.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Maine Stay was wonderful. I think the seaside porch was occupied by at least one person during every daylight hour, drinking in the view and the sounds. We had a lovely paddle from the beach around a nearby island, sharing the experience with a loon and some porpoises. The garden was a delight, and the lawn is perfect for bocce. We loved the walk through the woods to the beach on the far side.

We ate every meal at the table on the side porch, enjoying the view and the Maine air. The kitchen is incredibly well-furnished with everything a cook could need. The microwave died while we were there, and the property manager provided amazing service, coming over with a new microwave the next day! We hope to come again!
