  • A Great Base for Exploring Acadia on Quiet Side

    "We had a wonderful stay for the last week in Sept. A very clean and comfortable stay for 5 adults and our two dogs. We took several walks down the road to explore the area, Long Pond lake is within walking distance. (great hiking trails there and fishing spots). We loved our stay in Southwest Harbor and would definitely stay on this side of the island again...we did not like the crowds near Bar Harbor. Any issues we had, Jesse was there immediately to take care of it - the heat was not turned on and we had a dip in temperature, so he resolved that. The only other issue with the house was water pressure was not great...we took showers one at a time. This only seemed to be an issue for showers or baths. We would definitely consider coming back here as we loved the location and roomy clean home...everything was provided. Loved the ducks who came for a daily visit...so peaceful and porch swings. Don't hesitate to book here and we want to come back to Maine again...it was more beautiful than we expected!"

  • Peacefulness abounds in this beautiful home!

    "My three children and I stayed at this property for a week in August. We had such a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and so well equipped. Everything you could possibly need is there. The kitchen is fitted for actual cooking, linens and towels are provided. The house is also spotlessly clean which I appreciate above everything else. My two boys are teenagers and used the downstairs bedrooms with the bathroom down there. My daughter and I used the upstairs rooms. Everyone loved having their own space while still being together. The house is well stocked with DVD's, games, and books. Two of my kids spent hours in the evenings playing chess and I loved seeing them so focused on something non electronic. The outside shower is an absolute dream, there is nothing like showering outside on a beautiful summer morning. The house location is very private and incredibly quiet and peaceful. We found the location of the property to be excellent for exploring many areas of Maine. We went all over the Blue Hill Peninsula and we drove up to Mount Desert Island quite a few times. It is an easy drive away of just about one hour. Acadia National Park is absolutely breathtaking. The owners clearly take a great deal of pride in their property. Sally is extremely pleasant and helpful. She is very responsive and sent us a detailed email with ideas of places to go and restaurants to eat at. I have rented many places and she was by far the most friendly and helpful owner I have ever dealt with. I would not hesitate to return here and often think longingly of our peaceful week in Maine!"

  • Delightful and private, Camp Stream point

    "Just love this place. It is quiet, relaxing and a pleasure to live in for a week or a month.Rooms are large and pleasant upstairs and down.The house is bright and airy, yet affords guests privacy from each other, if desired. The large deck is great for reading and relaxing or family dinners outside. The informal gardens are lovely, filled with flowers of many colors and variety. It's obvious that someone loves tending them. There is a large game/TV room downstairs with large screen TV and DVD player. Located near Blue Hill and Bucksport (an up and coming Maine small town), shopping and excellent restaurants are easily accessible. Acadia National Park is about an hour or so drive. Bangor Intl Airport is 45 minutes away. I will likely be returning to Camp Stream many times in the future. If you love Downeast Maine, this is a wonderful place from which to enjoy it."

  • Words Fail . . . .

    "And likewise superlatives. Neither my wife nor myself can recall another week (all too brief) with greater pleasure than the one just spent at the Jean-Paul House in Blue Hill. It was a rather special anniversary occasion that brought eleven family members together, ages ranging from 9 to 79. This large, handsomely furnished and decorated house afforded us plenty of room indoors and in the ample, beautifully planted garden borders and terrace leading down to a semi-private cove. We enjoy cooking together. A big, well-designed and fully-equipped kitchen made it easy. Blueberry pies (3 of them, a nephew's specialty), steamed lobsters (thanks, Jean-Paul, for setting things up), grilled meats (great Weber grill), quantities of pasta and salads (local farmers' markets came through) and one unforgotten unforgettable evening, a long lovely multi-course anniversary feast à la Française with candles and flowers and swell wines and wonderful food and song and super conviviality for all, catered for us by indefatigable J-P--a former restaurateur--and Melinda and their very talented chef friend, Joyelle. Comfort and consideration were everywhere. Linens of the highest quality, excellent and amusing tableware, an inviting terrace for al fresco meals and bay views, Adirondack chairs for lounging and tide-gazing and bird--watching, plus plenty of spaces for just being quiet among energetic family cheerfulness. Not to mention the attractions of the area. Some of us did a concert at Kneisel Hall, some kayaked on the bay and around Neskeag Point, some swam at a nearby lake, some visited the Wooden Boat School in Brooklin, we all lobster-lunched at Stonington while a regatta of full-bellied spinnakers sailed by, some shopped for paintings and wine and chocolate and coffee and ice cream. But nothing can truly describe the delights of our week. Blue Hill's Main Street is a busy, active thoroughfare. Once you pass the gate into the Jean-Paul House's expansive green floriferous garden/terrace, you enter a warm welcoming world in itself. I'll be pretentious, apologies, and cite a French poet's words (no translation needed) for it: "calme, luxe, et volupté." See for yourself."
