About Jacques and Becky Gagne
It all started with mail order Christmas wreaths. We were looking for a property to run our seasonal business, Island Sea Wreath when this property, close to our home, became available in 2000. The property consisted of a main house and small guest cottage and was perfect for our seasonal business needs. We were lucky to find year round renters for both houses. Last spring we said goodbye to Sally, our renter and friend who had been at the Balsam Lane Cottage for almost 13 years. I went to work remodeling and decorating the now vacant cottage for summer renters. Much to my delight I uncovered my inner contractor/decorator! I picked paint colors, fabrics, antique furniture and other eclectic pieces to create a relaxing and uncluttered environment. I wanted to live there myself! The property is peaceful being located down a private road but only minutes from the village center. You'll enjoy the sunny deck all day long and may even spy a family of deer feasting under the old apple tree in the field.

Fabulous cottage in the woods.
This cottage is beautifully designed and decorated. Everything you could need is provided. Blue Hill Village and Peninsula are wonderful but if you want its a short drive to Acadia and Bar Harbor. I highly recommend staying here!
It sounds like your first visit to Maine was a good one and a great way to kick off your retirement! Despite some not so great weather you managed to take in a lot of sightseeing and hikes. The detailed notes you left in the guest book for future adventurers will be appreciated. Thank you for taking such good care of the cottage too! Come back for a visit someday, we'd love to have you!
Nice, quiet place away from the crowds
We enjoyed our stay at Becky’s place. It was very clean and well-stocked with everything you need. The Blue Hill Peninsula is a quiet gem away from the crowds at Bar Harbor. Acadia is about 50 -60 minutes away. We loved exploring the newer part of Acadia at the Schoodic Peninsula. Blue Hill Peninsula has lots of hiking options,too. If you love hiking and seafood, this is the place for you.
This cottage IS charming, just as described on the vrbo site. It is warm and welcoming (as well as hosts Becky and Jacques!). It has everything a traveler needs, is located down a quiet country lane, and yet is close to the town of Blue Hill, Acadia NP and other area attractions/locations. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage and highly recommend it as a get-a-way for two.
So happy to hear your stay at the cottage was such a good experience for you both. I read the detailed notes you left in the guest book. I urge all new guests to be sure and take advantage of your reports on hikes and eateries! The cottage was left in perfect condition, which I appreciate so much. Come visit us again someday!
Lovely place, area and hosts. Appreciated all of it!
Same as abo e! Very nice.
Thanks for your review, glad you had a nice stay and found everything to be "lovely."
Sweet and private cottage/apartment
This rental was perfect for the wedding we were attending. It had everything we needed with the exception of shampoo conditioner and soap for showering, but there was a grocery store near enough that it wasn’t much of an inconvenience.
The cottage is very welcoming and supplied with everything you will ever need. Very quiet neighborhood and owners very accommodating. Visited with family while there and had a great time in the area of Blue Hill.
We're glad to hear you had such a nice visit with your family and felt so comfortable at the cottage. If you ever find your way back to Blue Hill for another family visit, please get in touch with us. We'd love to have you stay again!
Blue Hill is a summer tourist destination. But you won't find streets and shops overcrowded with visitors. Instead you'll find friendly shop keepers willing to share their beloved community, what we do and how we live. Whether you're looking for that slower pace of life or adventure, it's your choice, you can have it all!
