About the Owner

We purchased the property in 2001 and started building the log house in 2003, after designing it and finding a builder. The house is a vacation - retirement house, with my main residence currently being Philadelphia. I'm a retired Social Worker/ Family Therapist, having been the founder and Executive Director of an international adoption agency for almost 30 years.

Super Sunrise

  • 5 of 5
We are on our last day of vacation at Cove's End. This morning we experienced the most fabulous sunrise over the bay. Yes it was at 5AM but it was worth it!

Highlights of the trip were of course Cadillac Mountain, but don't miss Schoodic Point. We also took a trip to Camden. Well worth the hour and a half trip to get there. Spectacular views and great restaurants.

The cabin was homey, peaceful and serene. Exactly what we all needed to unwind. We could not believe the well stocked kitchen!! Anything you needed it was there.

The only wild life we saw was a fox. At least we thought it was a fox!!

And last we will mention the winery we visited. It was on our way to Camden called Cellardoor Winery. Great place, great wine and you can take a tour of the winery. While we were there they had a sampling of Black Dinah Chocolates. Paring them with wine was to die for!

Magic at the Cove

  • 5 of 5
Joanne and I, twice with grandchildren, once alone, have thoroughly enjoyed our stays at Cove's End during the past several years. The solitary morning song-birds, the soft sound of the tide coming in, the sweet smell of the fir trees all wash over the senses. Always clean and well equipped, the kitchen facilities are excellent, the fire-place dramatic and delightful.
Three minutes from Atlantic beach-front for the hardy, for boating, or sun-bathing with neighbors.
The splendid ride through Acadia National Park, the extraordinary beach sheltered between two large rocky promontories.
The town of Bar Harbor offers all the personal or family activities we wanted, including music and theatre, until we were ready to return to the quiet of the Cove.
We regularly took the short car-ride north to Schoodic Point for the marvelous walks along the flat-rocks that stretch out into the ocean like solid shapes of Monet's water-lillies. Heading south along route one we were only a half-hour from the lovely town of Blue Hill and Mt Desert Island with its small harbor inlets which we sometimes preferred to the excitement of Acadia and Bar Harbor.

All in all, some of the best vacations weeks we've ever had--between the accommodations, the immediate landscape, and the wonderful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5
Besides being a really comfortable and cheerful house to relax in, if you like to take walks along the wooded roads, look for wildflowers, and wear binoculars to
enjoy birding, this is a great spot to do it. Reading and spotting birds from the
wrap around deck while sipping a cup of tea or a glass of wine is pretty great too!
It's an easy house to share with family members or friends; kitchen is great for cooking together or alone. Enjoyed visiting national park and Bar Harbor nearby.

From the Owner

I've been vacationing in Maine for years, having a sister who lives outside of Belfast, where I vacationed with my children until they were grown. After spending some summers renting, I always wanted to have a log home in the woods and started looking. When we first saw the land at Raccoon Cove, we were overwhelmed with the beauty and privacy of the 'Cove', yet close to Lamoine Beach, Ellsworth, and Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Through the years, the peace and serenity of the area, the beauty of the house, remain totally engaging and renewing.

Our property is almost at the end of Lamoine Peninsula, 10 miles

downeast of Ellsworth, off of route 184. From the Lamoine Beach (5

minute walk)there are views of Mount Desert Island and Acadia Park.

Lamoine Beach is one of the few natural sand beaches in Maine. They

have picnic tables and barbecues, and a boat launch, kayak rental and

lessons. All along this

peninsula there are small coves and beaches for swimming with

dramatic views and very few people. Getting to Bar Harbor, through

back roads, eliminates the traffic crunch of route 3. Bar Harbor is

about 20 miles away. Trenton, the gateway to Acadia is only 8 miles

away. A network of private roads are perfect for hiking or biking.

From the Owner

We love looking out the window walls at the changing panorama of the tidal beach. At sunrise, we get a tremendous colorful view, with the sun reflecting on the water. At sunset, the reflection from the west creates a mystical, muted scene. Even after 10 years, the house soothes with its beauty. It's fun to cook in the large kitchen and eat outdoors on the deck, or grill and eat on the deck looking out at the water.
