Beautiful Ocean View
Positives: The house sits a good distance from a quiet, dead-end road. There’s a large lawn between the house and ocean and a large deck facing the ocean with several chairs and a table. The gas grill was in good condition. The owner has some flower beds with interesting flowers in the landscaping. The house was quite clean and well stocked with towels, bedding, etc. There are 3 separate bedrooms upstairs and a futon in a room downstairs. There are 2 full baths on the 2nd floor & 1/2 bath on 1st floor. The owner is very responsive & accommodating. The home was welcoming and comfortable. We cooked and ate all our meals at the house, and it was well stocked with necessary cooking implements, except for a mixing bowl and water pitcher : ) We enjoyed watching porpoises jumping and seals fishing and playing close to the shore. The kids had a great time skipping rocks and beach-combing. The ocean views are absolutely beautiful. Other things to consider: The house is a duplex with a unit facing the ocean & a unit behind that. The owner uses the back unit as her residence and was not at home until the day before we left, which was not a problem at all. As with the several other coastal houses we’ve rented in past years, there’s no shade space on the deck. I’m not sure if having a shady place to sit outside facing the ocean is considered aesthetically unacceptable on the coast, but it would make the outdoor space much more comfortable/useable in the hot sun. The path to the ocean includes a very steep set of steps that would be problematic for people with less than good balance, and at the bottom, it’s very difficult to get from the last step to the ground, requiring the user to climb/slide down a large rock. The beach is small when the tide is in and very rocky with fist-size rocks and few sandy spots. It would be difficult to set up a beach chair without moving rocks. The rocks make for difficult walking at any time, but with proper footwear, we were able to walk quite a distance down the shoreline.
The views from this home are breathtaking! The pictures really don't do it justice. It sits on a bluff overlooking the bay where you can see coastal cliffs to the south, ships sailing right past the deck, seals frolicking all day, and beautiful sunsets. The property is huge, very private, and quiet. There is a staircase down to a rocky beach where you can launch kayaks, swim, and collect shells and sea glass. The house is very nicely furnished and equipped, clean and comfortable.
The house is conveniently located to many beautiful coastal Maine areas of interest including Acadia National Park, Belfast, Bucksport, Camden Hills State Park and numerous harbor towns, while at the same time Stockton Springs and Lighthouse Road are extremely quiet and peaceful without hoards of tourists everywhere. I would recommend visiting Stonington, a very cool fishing harbor at the southern end of Deer Isle, where you can see hundreds of lobster boats coming in with their haul. It is a pleasant change from the hustle and bustle of Acadia and Bar Harbor in peak season!
Susie is an awesome host. She greeted us upon arrival and made sure we had everything we needed and recommended places to explore. Even though she lives on the property we never felt a lack of privacy. She is so kind and also quite a talented artist. If you care to chat be sure to go see her at work down in the garage creating her glass masterpieces-they are very beautiful. We even purchased one as a very special souvenir to remember our stay in this Waterfront Wonder!
A Relaxing Two-week Stay for Us.
Good location which makes it possible to take day trips to many places. We especially enjoyed Acadia National Park (to the North) which is a must, and the other direction, (South) gives you Camden, Rockland, and beautiful coastal drives. We loved the small fishing villages...our favorite was Stonington. A busy harbor with only 1000 residents but over 300 lobster boats. The house is close to Young’s Lobster Pound where you can take a cooler and bring home fresh live lobsters, clams, or mussels to steam in the well-equipped kitchen. It’s wonderful to sit on the big deck and watch the boats go by. The view is incredible. The house is “in the country” so ultra quiet and private. The house is very open and bright so star gazing from the upstairs master bedroom is a delight. The owner is most gracious and invited us to pick things from her garden....including bowls full of delicious raspberries. We also picked bouquets of fresh flowers from the yard. A great choice for enjoying Northern Maine.
Perfect home for a quiet vacation with beautiful waterfront view
Attracted to this property by the pictures on VRBO. Not disappointed. Everything as was represented. Quiet location. Beautiful view of the bay. Plenty of room for the number of occupants including 2 socializing areas and a large kitchen area with large countertop to work and eat at. Totally enjoyed the stay. Awoke each morning, without lifting my head from the pillow, to a spectacular view of the water and scenery. Sat each morning, with family, on the porch listening to the birds and watching for seals. Hated to leave at the end of vacation.
