Holiday Rental House
If you are looking for absolutely stunning views and a unique setting enjoyed in complete privacy five to eight minutes drive from two quaint harbor towns, then this vacation getaway is for you. Perched high on a mountainside, this house is of Log/Post and Beam construction with open floor plan, large wrap-around porch, lofts, cathedral ceiling, and with windows and skylights on all sides to let in the truly magnificent, commanding vistas. The house sleeps up to eight people in two open loft bedrooms and a cozy, visually private guestroom/library on two Queen sized beds, one Queen sofa bed and one Full-sized futon pullout sofa, all very comfortable. There is a whirlpool tub and a stand-up shower, plus a half bath with sunken vessel sink.

There is a whirlpool tub and a stand-up shower, plus a half bath with sunken vessel sink. A country kitchen including a classic cast iron/enameled cook stove, gas range, and slate countertops with silvan views from the sink. elegant décor throughout. This house is intimate and romantic, while nature on all sides brings the outside in and lends it an incredibly expansive feel. Unforgettable place! The peace and quiet and privacy here will amaze you, and there is virtually no traffic near us as we are situated at the turnaround of a small paved road high on the slope, and at the end of a long, steep private drive. A discretely used, only occasionally occupied second building on the property is tucked away out of sight, you won't even know that it is there. On the surrounding mountains to the Ocean, on all sides you will see nothing but forests and meadows dotted by a few fine houses in the distance with their cheerful lights at night. Forests below you and blueberry fields above, you look down over the lush treetops or pick your own blueberries in season above the house. All neighbors are acres away and almost completely invisible. You will have to crick your neck to see the rooftop of one of them behind you from the wide porch, and then you will only see a part of a roof. You may see bald eagles and hawks soar below you! You see dozens of the islands on the Ocean, with Cadillac Mountain in the distance on Mt. Desert Island in Acadia National Park 43 miles away. The sunrise—if you are up for it—will sparkle on the water and sunsets will turn it a deep pink. The sunset will turn the coastal mountains a range of colors from pale mauve to brilliant gold. The area provides infinite possibility for the Nature lover, sailor, historian, art aficionado, birdwatcher or stargazer. For those who long for the water there are daysails, bareboat charters (better be an experienced skipper), lighthouse trips, lobster fishing cruises and ecotours, lobster-bakes on islands, ferries, whale-watching, kayak and rafting trips, and three to six day nautical adventures on the classic tall ships and wooden schooners known locally and historically as Windjammers. For landlubbers there are hiking trails, starting right outside your door, all over Camden Hills State Park and beyond, as well as on breathtakingly beautiful trails known only to locals, which we will share with you when you come. If you are a bird lover, you will have an overwhelming chorus of birdsong right up at the house. The night sky is amazing. There is world-class cuisine and all manner of dining experiences, from waterfront fish-shacks to French to be had in the area, as well as the Farnsworth Art Museum, home of the Wyeth collection, and historic old harbors and quaint, busy waterfronts everywhere, filled with fishing vessels, luxury yachts from all over the world, and classic wooden sailboats. The house is equipped with wireless access and cable. Outdoor equipment includes Adirondack chairs and a gas barbecue grill; well-behaved pets allowed upon approval. Free WiFi (fast and ready for remote work!) More

well-behaved pets allowed upon approval. Children always welcome, although the house is not specifically 'childproofed', also some care must be taken with the spiral staircase as well as the antiques, art and cultural objects, as many are fragile. The house is not suited for loud or boisterous parties or large events. Please take care of the place; there are hand-made orientalist, authentic Native American cultural objects, some white upholstery, good linens and antiques.

I rented this property as a home base for a team of runners participating in the Rock Lobster Relay, a 200-mile relay race from Bar Harbor, ME to Portland, ME. My only regret from this experience is that we were not able to spend more time enjoying the lovely, tastefully decorated house, the inviting gardens, the spacious wraparound deck, and the jaw-dropping views. The owners of the house were gracious and accommodating through every communication, always helpful but never intrusive. Everything about the place shows a thoughtful attention to detail. As the owners are quick to point out, the house is an open concept design, so there is not a lot of privacy. For our group, this was not a problem. I intend to return as soon as possible. The only problem we had with the whole transaction was TripAdvisor's fault: The website gave us the wrong address for the property. The mistake was compounded by the fact that the house at the wrong address was also a rental property and no one was there. Luckily, it was still light out when we arrived, and although the cell service was weak in the remote, forested, sparsely populated area, we were able to make contact with the owners by text message and eventually figured out we were in the wrong place. Lesson learned: if doing a vacation rental through TripAdvisor (which I probably will never do again), confirm the address with the property owner before leaving home.

We stayed in this cozy log cabin during the fall, hoping to catch the foliage turning. The place is very clean, very well appointed and had everything we needed. The owners even provided some essentials such as milk, eggs and many other goodies, which helped a lot and we were very grateful for. The cabin is secluded just enough to be undisturbed by anyone. Surrounded by trees. Very friendly birds. Pitch black at night, which makes it great for looking at the stars. Plenty of local places to eat, within 10 minutes drive. We loved it and would go back again.
