I had the pleasure of being in this cozy and peaceful home last winter and have brought the experience to mind often when I need a bit of a break in my daily life. There is a gorgeous window where we spent hours watching the sky change over Cadillac Mountain while drinking mulled wine as the fire crackled. When we ventured out into winter Maine it was a short walk to the water where we watched birds gather shellfish and then drop them from a great height to crack them open. But! You don't even have to venture out to enjoy the Birds, there are several well-tended bird feeders in the back lawn. I can not recommend this stay enough!
The well maintained home is located on a quite road with nearby beach! It is an easy drive to Acadia National Park on Mt Desert Island and only 20 minutes to Ellsworth. Spectacular views of Mt Desert Island and Frenchman's bay right out your window.
Truly and wonderful get away for those who want privacy but still great access to water and exploring the upper coast of Maine
“My wife and I stayed at the Plum Way home for the third week of August 2017.
What a GEM of a Maine coast vacation home! Good for a couple looking for a quiet getaway on the coast of Maine or for a family with lots of kids ready for Downeast Adventures on local trails and ponds, or in Acadia National Park. The views from the large living room windows and from the private backyard are stunning. The mountains of Acadia National Park, Mount Desert Island and Frenchman’s Bay are JUST RIGHT THERE! The home itself is charming, comfortable and it makes for a lovely vacation getaway. Sea breezes keep the home cool during the day and we slept with the windows open to hear the fanatic birdsong coming from the yard and “nearby natural gardens”. The kitchen which includes a full refrigerator and a wonderful full stove was a fun to prepare seafood and other meals. We even made a tasty apple pie from apples from the tree in the yard. The well appointed and comfortable living room made for a fun place to play games, read, and watch videos. It was also a great place to just just hang out, eat lunch in the big bay window and watch the local wildlife taking advantage of the fruits of the apple tree that is just feet from the living room window (including a very happy porcupine that would climb into the tree for an apple treat!). We appreciated the easy drive to Acadia Schoodic Point, Blue Hill and other places along the Downeast coast. The local public swimming pond is just 5 minutes away and is a great place to swim, kayak, or just cool off in the shade of the mature trees. From the house, we walked down to the nearby public tidal cove (easy 10 minute walk) daily and enjoyed the sunrises and the sunsets from both there and from the house. This vacation home has it all. We were charmed by the Plum Way vacation home and we think you will be, too!”
