Both our houses are designed in the contemporary style. We used custom made decor and cherry tree furniture. A lot of windows, glass doors, bright and open space are inside the house. It is very quiet outside. You most likely will be alone at the beach. We share the whole sea cove with only one neighboring house. It is a pure paradise if you want to live on the beach on your own and within minutes of driving to the main local attractions. You'll be amazed of our botanical garden and landscape.
The property offers everything your family needs for a quintessential New England vacation. With 200 feet of sea shore front, the land plot has plenty of space right near the water – about 1 acre of green lawn, great beach, shore front fire pit amphitheater, fantastic stone patio for outside dining, great evergreen botanical garden, collection of Japanese maples that have beautiful leaves changing colors three times during the spring, summer and absolutely spectacular during October - November, rosary with a number of David Austin varieties, rhododendron and azalea garden, hydrangeas of different varieties, apple trees and high bush blueberry gardens, peonies, lavender and much more. The main house is situated just 50 feet from the water and the sound of the waves will caress your ears throughout your vacation. The large families will feel comfortable inside the main house with three bedrooms. Views of the bay and all major Acadia's mountains from both the outdoor deck and living room with floor-to-ceiling windows/sliding doors. An open floor allows for an optimal space to gather multiple generations of your family for a Maine vacation! There are 2 bathrooms, great wooden porch, and sea view balcony with seating hammocks! All local attractions such as Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor village, restaurants and shops are just 15-25 minutes away by car. There are tons of great activities for children and the whole family all around!
Equipped with fully furnished, gourmet open kitchen, grand dining and family room to entertain as well as plenty of spaces to curl up with a good book, this contemporary style house has everything you could want.
The attached guest house includes additional bedroom (king-size bed and a queen-size sleeper sofa), living room, bathroom and a kitchenette (featuring a sink, refrigerator, microwave and a toaster). The guest house is connected to the main house by a gorgeous stone path running through the bushes of hydrangeas, azaleas and many other plants that will create the impression that you live in the garden.
Please read any books available on the shelves or play any board games you see. We do not have cable TV on purpose, but you may use a DVD player or USB or HDMI cables for watching movies. TV is also WiFi connected so you can watch your Internet channels. WiFi works inside the main house and outside.
Linens and towels are provided. Just bring your personal items and sunscreen! You can use anything that looks available (not covered or locked) to you, but only at your own risk and care. You can't use bicycles. For plant lovers: botanical garden and other plants are not for cutting. Please let us know if you see that any plant does not feel well. Please always have a bucket of water when you make an open fire and do it in the fire pit at the amphitheater only.

I traveled a lot and I did not find a better place than the coast of Maine, US. I summer here since 2008 and it is never enough for me. I liked this area so much that I have built a house in a lovely sea cove overlooking the mountains of Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island. I love plants and landscaping. I designed and take care of my small botanical garden in Trenton that is full of colors and scents of blooming plants as well as collections of corniferns and japanese maples.
