Acadia National Park: Acadia National Park: In 1913, President Woodrow Wilson set aside 6000 acres (within what is now Acadia National Park) as Sieur de Monts National Monument. With the acquisition of more land and private support and funding, in 1919 President Wilson signed an act establishing Lafayette National Park. In 1929 the parks name was changed to Acadia. Acadia National Park was established to protect the area's spectacular scenic values, Maine's rock bound coast, its coastal and its offshore islands as characterized by the geologic features, natural history and the native plant and animal life. Forty five miles of rustic carriage roads weave around the mountains and through the valleys of Acadia National Park, the gift of philanthropist John D Rockefeller, Jr., and family. Rockefeller, a skilled horseman, desired to travel on motor free byways via horse and carriage into the heart of Mount Desert Island. His efforts resulted in roads with sweeping vistas and close up views of the landscape.

Cadalic Mountain: Cadillac Mountain: At 1,530 feet, Cadillac Mountain is not only the tallest mountain in Acadia National Park, but also the tallest mountain along the eastern coast of the United States. Rising high above the town of Bar Harbor, Cadillac Mountain offers magnificent views of the Porcupine Islands and Frenchman Bay. Explore the summit of this granite mountain along a .3-mile trail, which includes wayside exhibits about natural and human history. Portions of this trail are accessible to wheelchair users. Cadillac Mountain is accessible via a winding, narrow, 3.5-mile road. The road is closed from December 1 through April 14 and whenever weather conditions (e.g., dense fog or ice) require.

Beautiful lake and comfortable home!

  • 5 out of 5
We had everything we needed for a great vacation! We had 3 teenage girls with us who loved the paddle boat and the dock. Very quiet and relaxing! On our rainy day we drove to Bangor for dinner and a movie. Nice theatre and mall. Close to Bar Harbor too! So made for a wonderful family vacation! Even brought the dog! I would love to come back again! Everything was better than described!

Perfect Getaway in Maine

  • 5 out of 5
Definitely the best property I've ever rented. Josh and Erica are so nice and make sure you feel welcome and have everything you need. I stayed here for a month and a half while working at the nearby hospital and got engaged on a small, undeveloped island in the middle of the lake. Kayaking, canoeing, fishing, swimming all summer long. Sit by the fire pit at night. The house is clean and comfy with ample space. Bar Harbor and the lobster pounds are an easy drive. Would love to return to this property in the future. Thanks Josh and Erica! 5 stars, easy.

Amazing vacation spot

  • 5 out of 5
This beautiful, rustic cottage has everything you could ask for in a vacation home, it was better than we expected as it is very clean, well equipped with new washer and dryer, a working dish washer and 1 bathroom on each of the 3 floors and it is tastefully decorated throughout. The lot is beautifully landscaped and is located on the sunrise side of the lake, so you get sun all day long into the early afternoon. The water is extremely clean and very warm. We brought our own boat and kept it at the cottage's own dock all week, enjoying all kinds of water sports on the lake. At the end of the week, I could barely notice a water line on it. This speaks to the quality of the water in this pond. It also comes with all kinds of toys to play on the water, from kayaks, canoe to floats, skis and even a wakeboard. The owners are amazing, very friendly and approachable, making sure we had everything we needed to make our stay just perfect. The size of the lake is perfect too in our opinion and it doesn't get very busy so you can really enjoy your boat ride/ jet ski ride. It is easy to keep yourself supplied with all you need as Trade Winds, a local gas station / corner store is only minutes away. Bangor is only about a 15-20 min drive away which allowed us to dine out on occasion as well as do some shopping on a less sunny day. We absolutely loved our stay and will most definitely be renting it again next year.

Peaceful !

  • 4 out of 5
Despite the rain during our entire stay, we truly enjoyed the peaceful surroundings of this cabin. Josh, the owner, was helpful in anyway he could be, including bringing his own grill over for us to use! The kids loved the easy access to the water, and the paddle boat was one of their favorites! Early kayak paddling , even in the mist with the loons, was so relaxing and tranquil. This was a very clean and comfortable get a away weekend for all!!

Winter wonderland

  • 5 out of 5
The place was great, just what one was looking for in a snowy, cold location on New Years. The owners were friendly and very helpful. If something was needed, they were there to help. Pet friendly, which was a total plus. Directv and wifi was a bonus. Location was absolutely beautiful. Overall, a wonderful trip. Definitely recommended.

Worth the trip from Jersey

  • 5 out of 5
Cute cottage on Chemo Pond. We had a great stay here. Quiet, tranquil, and very relaxing. Kayaking, swimming and pet friendly.Great place for teens. We picked this place because of the reviews. We were not disappointed. Acadia National Park is a beautiful treasure. We called Josh to ask if he could suggest a place to eat. Our taste is for seafood, he suggested, Stewman's in Bar Harbor." That 's were President Obama and his family ate in 2010. Awesome!!! If you love seafood there is a place called Trenton Pound. You can eat in or take it home. Delicious!!
If you want to get away and visit the state of Maine, this is the place to stay.

Chemo Pond is a beautiful, three and a half-mile long lake, located in Downeast Maine near Acadia National Park an Bar Harbor. It makes a relaxing vacation spot for anyone wanting to explore the Downeast Maine area, without the crowds of Acadia National Park. The setting for Chemo Pond couldn’t be prettier with a view perfect view of Chick Hill, with a nice, flat area at the water’s edge that is perfect for sunning or just relaxing. Just a few of the activities available at Chemo Pond are swimming, fishing, boating, jet-skiing, Snowmobiling, ice fishing, hiking, bicycling, wildlife viewing or just relaxing and enjoying the views. For sightseers, a forty-five minute drive takes you to Mount Desert Island, home to Acadia National Park, which is the oldest national park on the East Coast. Ellsworth is only a few minutes away and also has shopping and restaurants. Bangor is just fifteen-minutes away and includes any and all amenities that you can think of including Hollywood Slots Casino.
