4 bedroom, sleeps 8. Modern lake house on a secluded cove on Long Pond
About Tim McAllister
Our family has owned the property since 1971, when we built a log cabin on the site. Over the years we gradually added "amenities" like telephone, electricity and indoor plumbing. We had loads of wonderful memories in the place, but eventually it was in need of too many repairs, so we took it down and replaced it with a new house that was completed in 2016. We've spent many wonderful summers at this location, and always look forward to returning.
Why Tim McAllister chose Mount Desert
The location on Long Pond, the largest lake on Mount Desert Island, is ideal. We're the only house on a large cove; you can see houses across the lake, but none on either side of our property. The property is directly on the lake, and is surrounded by acres of woods. You'll definitely see ducks, loons, chipmunks and red squirrels, and you may well see deer on the property as well as bald eagles and other wildlife. This is a place with hundreds of activities to keep you occupied at all times, but it's also a place of great tranquility -- perfect for downtime to escape the hectic daily routine of work, school, etc.

Bar Harbor Home on the Water
The immaculate house was in a beautiful setting on the water and conveniently situated near Bar Harbor and the park. Although there were only four of us, the house would be comfortable for a large group. The home owner could not have been nicer or more helpful. We would heartily recommend a stay in this home.
Best Home Rental Experience I've Ever Had!
We hosted a mini family reunion at Tim's Long Pond home, 7 adults and 1 baby. The main floor space was perfect for entertaining. The kitchen was modern, clean, and well stocked with all the things you forget. The location was very peaceful, and the sunrises over the pond were magnificent, not to mention the canoes and kayaks, which were a bit hit with us. Tim, the property owner, and his crew were so incredibly responsive. I cannot say enough good things about the property and the owner - we cannot wait to come back!
Lovely place on a gorgeous pond. Good beds, great kitchen, beautiful deck. Nice space for 2 families. We’d recommend 100%. And you can’t beat MDI in the fall.
Couldn’t have asked for a better place! Great for family retreats or a quick weekend with friends!
Quiet with amazing views.
Lots of outdoor stuff to do.
A Place in Paradise
My family traveled here from southern points, loving the cooler temperatures, for a fall wedding. Although that was our purpose, we enjoyed being on the water and all that this beautiful, tranquil home provided! Would love to return to spend more time exploring the surrounding National Park! This rental provided ample space for all and the outdoor areas were a big plus, as was the finished basement. would highly recommend this rental!
Excellent experience, will be back.
The property itself was incredible and exactly what we were looking for. Tim, the property manager, was extremely welcoming and responsive. This was our first time staying here but won’t be our last.
It's a short drive to all of the attractions of Acadia National Park and the towns of Mount Desert Island, including Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Southwest Harbor and Bass Harbor.
