Get away from it all at our peaceful and immaculate studio apartment nestled in the trees just steps from pristine Green Lake. Enjoy two hundred feet of gorgeous waterfront on two lovely acres. We are on a well maintained unpaved road with little traffic, affording peace and quiet.
In the Loon's Nest, you'll find a comfortable queen sized bed that looks out on the lake. If you're an early riser, you can watch the sunrise from bed, but the door and windows all have blinds to lower if you plan to sleep in or nap. You're here to relax and rejuvenate! A microwave, small fridge, toaster, Keurig coffee maker, dishes and silverware are provided for light meal preparation. You have access to a gas barbecue grill as well. WiFi is provided.
No pets please and no smoking.
There are the two kayaks and a 15’ canoe available at the water's edge with life jackets provided. You are welcome to borrow our bikes to take a ride on our road as well.
Read and relax in the large hammock at the water’s edge or simply watch the leaves above you sway in the breeze. Take a long walk if you like. Swim in clean clear water at the end of our dock, where you can see 12 feet to the bottom. Green Lake is considered one of the premier lakes in Maine, with spring fed depths of up to 180 feet. Our dock is unusually spacious, with 2 Adirondack chairs at the end and two lounge chairs closer in. There are also additional lounge chairs on the lawn, providing plenty of places to relax.
If you decide to check out the area, Ellsworth is 15 minutes away. It has just about everything you might need or want. Quaint villages like Blue Hill, Surry, and Castine are all within 20-40 minutes of our location and the city of Bangor is a half hour to our north.
The entrance to Acadia National Park is 35-40 minutes away, and has 45 miles of carriage trails to bike on without road traffic and gorgeous hiking trails that wind along the ocean or reach amazing views. You can rent bikes or sea kayaks at several locations if desired. You might decide to drive to the top of Mt. Cadillac for a spectacular view, go whale watching, drive the scenic park loop road, or enjoy charming towns like Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, and Northeast Harbor.
After a day enjoying the Ellsworth area or Acadia National Park, come back and take a nice cool swim. There's a swim ladder at the end of our dock and the apartment has four beach towels for your use. The Loon's Nest does not have a television; we’re hoping that you connect with nature during your stay. We have friends and family who continually turn down day trips when they're here; all they want to do is relax and enjoy our wooded lakeside setting. Whether you decide to explore our beautiful area by car, get active, or just relax, we want you to have a wonderful time!
