About Jan C Hall
For nearly forty years Don & Marilyn Chambers (my parents) have been welcoming guests to Captains Quarters and have provided a level of service that has become rare. They have built a reputable name for themselves in vacation rentals through hard work & dedication to providing comfort and convenience for guests. The Chambers built Captains Quarters in 1980. At this point in their lives (2013) they have decided it is time to retire and slow down a bit and do more of the things they love to do. I became owner of my parents property, Captains Quarters at the end of 2013 and I intend to continue welcoming guests just as my parents have always done This is one of my favorite homes that I have always loved and understand why my parents continued to have many 'repeat' tenants.
Jan C Hall purchased this House in 2013
Why Jan C Hall chose Hall Quarry
Maine is full of wonderful places, but few can rival the experience of spending your vacation on Somes Sound. Captains Quarters offers a clean, comfortable, peaceful, and memorable spot for your next vacation. Etched deep into the heart of Mount Desert Island, the five mile long Somes Sound is the only fjord on the Atlantic Coast. Surrounded by the lush mountains of Acadia National Park, the Sound offers spectacular views of both land and sea. Leave your worries behind, and enjoy an unforgettable vacation experience on Somes Sound.
What makes this House unique
Within minutes from Bar Harbor, Mountains, Restaurants, Marina's, Acadia National Park and amazing views of Somes Sound. What makes our property unique is that we provide water access, a boat ramp, deep water mooring, and dock with row boat. Most evenings you can watch deer graze in front of your deck as you look over the sunset on Somes Sound. Ocasionally you will see a Momma deer and her new fawn.
CANCELLATION POLICY: Ignore VRBO's cancellation policy as it is not correct!! I will refund your rental fee if I can re-rent the week you booked.
FURNISHINGS POLICY: Please do NOT move the furniture around. This tears carpets and makes it very difficult for our cleaning company.
HOUSE RULE: RELAX AND ENJOY!!!
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
We loved our stay. Only complaint is very little available kitchen storage. It’s all fulled with really too many dishes. And - the water access is a bit of a walk which we had to ask directions for- this was unclear in the listing. The house is great for a family vacation!
We had a great time visiting Acadia, and this property was a perfect and relaxing home base!
A great way to see Maine
Captains Quarters provided an easily accessible base of operations on Mt. Desert Island’s “quiet side” for our three-generation family of eight’s first Maine vacation. Sunrise views of Somes Sound from the family room and spacious deck offered a lovely backdrop for morning coffee and evening BBQ, while the basement game room and fireplace made a great hideaway on a rainy day. All the beds were comfortable, the kitchen had all the equipment we needed, and everything was clean and tidy. A great place to stay.
We stayed here with 6 adults (3 couples) and our 7 year old granddaughter, and had a marvelous time. The house is perfectly located in the quiet Somes Sound region, much less touristy than Bar Harbor, which is about 20 minutes away. Quainter, quieter Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor, and Seal Harbor are nearby, and the entrance to Echo Lake is just 5 minutes down the road.
Bedrooms are large and comfortable, and there are 5 (!) bathrooms. The kitchen is very well equipped, although counter and cupboard space is a bit challenging - plan on bringing a tote or other container to store food. We cooked fresh lobster sourced from a neighbor - delicious! The deck is the crown jewel of the property - huge, with plenty of seating, and the most wonderful view of the sound. We looked forward to our daily visits from the resident deer - 4 fawns with their moms that visited frequently.
The basement rec room is a great place to escape the occasional hot and humid day -temps were in the 90s during our visit, and there's no a/c. Plenty of fans are available and there's always a nice breeze, so the heat wasn't much of a problem.
There's a sizeable campground next door, and we were a bit worried about the noise a couple of times, but it didn't end up to be an issue - it seemed like they have a pretty strict noise policy.
If you're looking to explore the true quiet beauty of Mt. Desert Island, this is the perfect place to do it.
Great vacation home
My family and I recently stayed in Captain's Quarters.(There were six of us.) We enjoyed the house very much. It is roomy, very nicely decorated, very clean and has all the amenities. We loved the view of the Sound off the huge back deck. A little deer came into the back yard every day, and a few times right up under the deck. The house is located in a secluded, quiet area and yet only a short distance from Southwest Harbor, Bar Harbor, etc I would recommend staying in Captain's Quarters. It is perfect for a family or several groups of friends.. M. L. Garrison
