Property Details

Updated: Apr 14, 2015
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Close to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, but a world apart from the tourist traffic and congestion, this large oceanfront home is located on West Bay at the end of a half-mile road. There is a wild bird sanctuary on one side, with water at the front and other side. This home is ideal for two families or one extended family, as the bedrooms are at opposite ends of the house: a master bedroom suite with bathroom and walk-in closet on one end, and two bedrooms with bathroom (and Whirlpool tub) on the other. Full kitchen with all appliances. Dining room, den, laundry room. Sixty-foot deck facing ocean plus large screen porch. Kayaking, fishing, bird-watching, and clamming right at your back door. Our house also features a resident-pair of nesting eagles who have raised eaglets for several years in a row. Explore Down East and nearby Acadia. This home is located at the top of the Schoodic Peninsula, just a short drive to the Schoodic section of Acadia National Park and Winter Harbor; about 40-minutes to Bar Harbor. This is Down East Maine the way it should be--quiet and private, yet just a short distance from the tourist activities of Bar Harbor. Kayak on the quiet bay, or venture out into the Gulf of Maine. Watch the eagles raise their young. Harvest clams at low tide. Have a glass of wine on the deck as the sun sets across the bay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I have rented Chicken Run for 2 weeks each summer from

the Larsons for the last 6 years. Needless to say we more than love

it there. The setting is just beautiful and very private. The house is big and roomy and wonderful and the kitchen is a pleasure in which to cook. We love the whole Schoodic Peninsula area and always have a great

time during our Maine vacations. The ever-changing conditions on the

West Bay at Chicken Run...high and low tides, weather, time of day,

moon cycle, the wildlife on full display...just magical. Even if the

weather is rainy we love just hanging around at the house, reading,

relaxing, watching tv or a dvd, listening to music...feeling the

breeze from the huge deck and screened in porch, smelling the smells

and hearing the sounds...a really special spot. You can have a cozy

fire in the wood burning stove in the living room if the night is

chilly and the view of the stars over the bay on a moonless night is

spectacular. Lots to do in the area--hiking trails, Acadia, Schoodic Point, climbing Schoodic Mountain, renting kayaks, stopping at roadside

lobster roll joints and on. Very good food/grocery shopping nearby in

Millbridge, Winter Harbor, Ellsworth and the very near Darthia Farms

organic farm shop. Some really good restaurants in Ellsworth and

elsewhere are within an easy drive. Also, the Larsons are really great people and have always been a

pleasure to interact with.
