About owner/property manager

Broker/Owner of Adams Real Estate/Wife, Kim owns Salon 241

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2013

Why owner/property manager chose Gouldsboro

This property has been in my wife's family since 1964. It has been a place where her family vacationed during the summers and enjoyed the local wildlife and seashore. Great for bird watching. Close to Schoodic National Park. And a short drive to Bar Harbor or take the Winter Harbor Ferry for a fun cruise! We have been offering our home on HomeAway for the last few years and the people that stay here say they have had an experience of a lifetime. There are deer, rabbits and numerous wildlife sightings each day. See Birch Harbor, Winter Harbor, Prospect Harbor, Corea Beach & Schoodic Point all within 10 minutes of my property!!

What makes this house unique

629' water frontage on Grand Marsh Bay! With all the amenities of home. Cool ocean breeze and an abundance of wildlife. Its just a beautiful spot. The main level of the house is on the second floor with panoramic views of the water just feet away from the deck. Decorated with a nautical theme through out the home. A great kitchen and combined living , dining area for entertaining the family. Cathedral ceiling in the Kitchen/Living room with large windows on all sides. We have LL Bean Kayaks, Gas grill, outdoor fire ring for wood fires, outside furniture, Lobster pots with steamer kit, Wi-Fi, DirecTV with 315 channels including HBO. All of this at waters edge.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Good morning, Phil.

Wanted to give you a heads up that the ***** family is heading out this morning, a day ahead of schedule. We had an absolutely wonderful time and the consensus is that no one wants to leave. But we’re going to visit Portland and shorten the drive in to Maryland on Saturday.

It’s hard to say how much each of us enjoyed the house over the past two weeks. We visited some wonderful places during the time, but our time relaxing, cooking and talking at the house is indeed memorable.

Also, because my phone did not have reception, I used the House phone for a few work calls and am leaving you cash to cover the cost of long-distance.

And am sorry to say we missed the time for returnables drop-off in Gouldsboro, so there are two additional bags in the garage. Very sorry to put you out.

Lastly, thank you to you and Kim. We are grateful to find such an incredible place.

We loved Mudflat Manor

  • 5 of 5

Great house on the beautiful Schoodic Peninsula. It didn't feel like a rental - it felt like home. We had everything we needed and then some. The house is very comfortable with plenty of room for a large family or couples traveling together. The kitchen is well equipped and even comes with coffee beans. Phil made sure we had everything we needed. We loved seeing the deer in the yard, watching the sunrise in the morning and spending time on the deck enjoying the view of the water. We had a great time!

Would highly recommend this property as the kitchen dining room and living room just followed towards the deck our family loved it. It was a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor. We ended the day with a Camp fire smores hot dogs and kielbasa we also toasted the rolls

Greatest vacation yet!

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Maine, and we wanted to enjoy the scenery for as long as we could. This home could not have fit the bill anymore than it did. Phil and Kim were such gracious hosts. Their home is absolutely gorgeous, and they had everything you could imagine! Our kids absolutely loved this house and enjoying the water views every morning. Thank you both so much! We hope to be back!

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at Mudflat Manor. The house comes equipped with everything you could possibly want for a week's stay. Our family of four (two young adult children) felt like we were back at summer camp for the week - although this time we got to enjoy lobster and craft beer instead of bug juice and fish sticks. The property is secluded and comes complete with a fire pit, kayaks, a nearly private lake, blueberries on the side of the road and beautiful sunsets. The nearby towns of Corea and Winter Harbor are small, but they have some good eating/shopping spots, and you can always take the ferry over to Bar Harbor if you want more options. Thank you Adams family for a truly memorable stay!

Mudflat Manor is amazing and can't wait to come back.

  • 5 of 5

Phil was very easy to work with and very responsive. We have really enjoyed our week here at the house and in Maine in general. We've had such a great time exploring Maine especially Bar Harbor and Cadillac mountain areas. We HIGHLY recommend Tracey's for everything. They have great food and the best price for live lobsters. We cooked lobsters at the house twice during our stay. Can't wait to come back. Thank you Phil and Kim for letting us stay at your beautiful home. We Love Maine!!!
