  • Everything you want for a memorable vacation experience

    "We were so happy coming down the dirt road driveway to see how secluded and private the cottage is. When we first arrived at the house we were warmly greeted by the owner, Bob Jones which was a nice treat to get a quick tour of the house and tips on the lake and other local advise. But when we 1st walked in was the real unexpected treat. This house is amazing. Plenty of room with 2 screened bedrooms which was an amazing experience of feeling like you were sleeping outdoors but on a really comfortable bed. If that's not your thing there are 2 conventional bedrooms upstairs. 2 dining rooms, again, one screened in and one enclosed. Atriumed living room with all natural wood that still smells of fresh cut natural wood. Real outdoor cabin experience with the luxuries and comforts of home. In the outdoors area between the house and the lake there are 5 kayaks fun for the whole family, even my 9yo daughter had no problem getting to the island on the calm lake. A hammock. A fire pit. A large rock right on the lake which was my coffee spot in the morning and fIshing spot throughout the day. The lake was so clean and warm and has a great island close by where we swam, relaxed, fished and has a HUGE rock to sunbath on or jump off of into the lake(that's a lot of fun). Lots of things to do close by. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Fort Knox and bridge tower observatory. Great Maine Lumberjack show. But with this house you could have a great vacation staying in the whole time. Bob and Doris .......thank you you so much for opening your home to us. We often do vacation rentals but yours will be at the top of our list. This is a great memory of a true Maine vacation for my family."

  • Gorgeous home and property! Great water views

    "Beautiful home that our large family enjoyed immensely! Loved the private location and kayaking in the back bay. The deck off the great room was our favorite spot to relax. Ping pong tournaments in the game room and badminton made for some fun family memories."

  • Great house in a great location

    "The house is lovely and full of great toys and amenities including water shoes in every size, a green canoe with life jackets and a fire pit. What else could you ask for? The location is perfect for enjoying all that Acadia and Deer Island and points in between have to offer, OR you can never leave and spend your days on the lovely rocky beach just a 4 minute stroll down the road. The homeowner is so helpful and very very quick to respond. We are ready to go back next summer!"

  • Our October Stay in Maine

    "Things we enjoyed: The coziness of the cottage is to be experienced firsthand. Early morning coffee and tea, enjoying the spectacular view off the deck; watching the early morning fog as it lifts and the magnificent sunrise across the bay. The stillness, peacefulness and fall colors can’t be described with words. Sitting on the deck with a good glass of wine and listening to the sound of the water with an occasional fire in a great fire pit on the beach is a must. Visiting the harbor in Blue Hill to buy fresh lobsters off the boat from a very nice fisherman was a highlight for our trip to Maine. Eating them was even better. Places we visited were Acadia, Winter Harbor, Bass Harbor, Bar Harbor, Seal Harbor, Blue Hill, Ellsworth and Schoodic Peninsula. Some of the high lights were the Harbor Porpoises along Schoodic Peninsula, the views from Cadillac Mountain Summit, The Blue Hill Wine Shop for friendly service; accepting of our dog and a great sandwich and cappuccino. Also very knowledgeable about wine. If you like to cook, visit Roaster Brother cooks store in Ellsworth. We had a wonderful time on a sunset sail with Downeast Windjammer Cruise Lines in Bar Harbor. You can bring your own bottle of wine to enjoy while enjoying the views during sunset. Some of the best food we enjoyed we found at J M Gerrish Café, Winter Harbor, friendly, accepting of our dog and the best blueberry pie ever. Seafood Ketch, Bass Harbor, the best lobster roll and a great location with the dog. Flexit Café in Ellsworth was a nice change of pace. The Fish House Grill on the pier in Bar Harbor was very good food, good service and the best Clam Chowder. Black Dinah Chocolates purchased in Blue Hill at the Fair Winds Fresh Flower shop were exceptional. For a quick bite to eat in a very busy area such as Bar Harbor, Downeast Deli and Box Lunch Co., was a good find. On our way to Winter Harbor, we stopped in Hancock at a place called Sullivan Harbor Farms and found the best maple glazed smoked salmon ever. If you like to knit, Shirley’s Yarns, Crafts and gifts in Hancock had a large variety of yarns, some local hand died yarns. There was also The Yarn Shop on the road to Blue Hill with only the basic’s and in the flower shop in Blue Hill (previously mentioned) had limited supply of yarn but all from Maine and hand died. All of this, Thanks to Dee and the opportunity she gave us by opening up her peace of paradise for us to experience. Thanks again, Dee. Mark and Chris Tribby"
