Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Downeast and Acadia - Sunset Cottage

2 To 3 Bedroom, 1 Bath Sleeps 11 (spring - fall)... 7 (winter)

Waterfront year-round vacation rental very affordable. Recently has been renovated and updated. Sunset Cottage is located on Chemo Pond and is a wonderful place for a family vacation, right on the waters edge. Fully stocked cottage with linens, bath towels, wash cloths and kitchen towels. Gas grills and picnic table are provided and also a fire pit. We have 2 kayaks, paddle boat, dock for fishing, raft for swimming out to and a horse shoe pit. Very relaxing on this quiet three mile pond ( about 1200 acres). Sit back, relax as you watch the loons and ducks pass by. You might see an eagle in flight, their nest is nearby.

We also have a property next door "Loon Haven #744549" if you have another family or friends ....you can be next door to each other.

We can rent 2 additional kayaks and a canoe if you are in need of extra.

Why Dennis and Juliann Taylor chose Downeast and Acadia

We own the cottage next to this one. We purchased it about 5 years ago and we spend as much time there as we can. Clifton and Chemo pond is a wonderful place to be. Bar Harbor/Acadia/Cadillac Mountain is 45 miles away and is absolutely beautiful, wonderful for hikers too.

Bangor is home of Hollywood Slots Casino, also Bangor Mall and many other stores.

A large selection of restaurants to choose from.

The River Concerts are very popular with very talented artists.

What makes this cottage unique

I love a lot of things about this place but the sunsets are the best....absolutely beautiful and a wonderful way to end your day.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was greating. It had everything. Dennis and Julian were great. We added people last minute with no problems. Every question I had whIle at the house was answered very quickly. They had set up picnic table us and had every feature you could want on the lake. I will definitely make a trip back.

Beautiful cottage on a lovely lake

  • 5 of 5

It was exactly as I had hoped. I used it for a couple days of R & R in March, but anyone could enjoy a week or a whole season here in comfort. Bonus: it is just a short drive from Acadia National Park, with the best hiking and views in all of New England! Thank you so much for the much-needed vacation!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is a cute cottage in a beautiful and quiet spot right on the lake. With water front views, water access, and beautiful sunsets I was able to relax and center myself over the 3 months that I stayed! Although I stayed during the winter months I can see how this would be a wonderful place on the water in the summer months! With many beds to accommodate a fairly large group, a full kitchen, a fire pit and grills this cottage has all you need for a great vacation. Additionally the owners were extremely responsive and attentive answering any questions I had within the hour. Their kindness made my stay that much better (who knew that was possible)! I would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants all of the above and to have a positive experience. Thanks again!!

Peaceful weekend at the lake

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Cottage is a well equipped home on a beautiful lake. We have stayed at Sunset Cottage twice this summer, and both times the home was clean and comfortable. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen has what you need to cook a nice meal, the view is beautiful, the grill and fire pit are convenient, and the addition of Dish Network TV and internet completes the package. Other than needing some ice cubes for my iced tea, we had everything we needed to complete a relaxing weekend at a beautiful and peaceful cottage. We will definitely return for years to come.

Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The camp was exceptionally clean and tidy and accommodating. So cute. I just wanted to live there forever. And why not, what a calming, relaxing lifestyle for 2 precious weeks. Each morning with coffee in hand, my camera swung around my neck, I would go quietly sit on the dock and watch and listen to the lake's morning rituals. I am smiling as I write this, thinking about those sweet quiet mornings that were all mine. Now that alone is my idea of a lovely restful break from, well you know, life!

Of course the family does eventually move about or arrive for a visit, which is beautiful of course. What's not to love about dragging out the fishing gear, playing on the paddle boat, and lovin those kayaks. We were happy to enjoy quite a heat wave during our camp days so swimming to the float and back again was a must. Oh I should also mention our two old dogs, Yogi and Sally, often strolled in the water knee deep, took lots of camp naps, and ate grilled hot dogs. Pretty sure they enjoyed their vacation too.

At dusk, between burgers and samoas, I snapped pictures of the sun slowly spilling into the water and splashing up into the sky. Every night seemed a gift for us all to see. Actually the gift was staying at Sunset Cottage for those two unforgettable weeks. Picture perfect in every way. Our thanks to the owners, Dennis & Julie, for making us feel so welcomed.

Another Great Week

  • 5 of 5

Spent another great week at Sunset Cottage. We were here last year. Very family friendly for a mixed group and also pet friendly. Sleeping arrangements were perfect and the view was spectacular. The kayaks were fun for the teenagers, and swimming was fun for everybody including the dog. We will definitely rent again. If only the drive wasn't so long.
