it's own bath. Cook's kitchen with all appliances, pantry and stunning

house rental amenities

Our house is well supplied with movies, games and books for at home
leasure hours. There are lots of woods for walking and of coarse the
beach to comb. The property was once a farm so there's an old apple
orchard that attracts the deer at times. The field is big enough and
the westerly winds are just right for kite flying. We know, we've done
it! We'll leave our kite in the garage. Those same breezes will keep
you cool on hot afternoons as well as discourage the mosquitoes.

activities and attractions in Acadia Maine

If you've come to see the sights, there's plenty to do. Acadia Natonal
Park is 20 minutes away with lakes, mountains, ocean drives for walking
or biking. There are rental places for bikes or kayaks, whale watches,
sight-seeing cruises, lots of shops, restaurants, movie theatres,
museums, a zoo, even an oceanarium. There's a funpark nearby in Trenton with a waterslide, miniature golf and other attractions. We'll have brochures at the house for you to check out. We are very near Lamoine State Park and the Lamoine Beach, one of Maine's best kept secrets, according to Down East Magazine, and we agree! It has the most amazing view of the mountains of Acadia across Frenchman's Bay. You've got to see it to believe it!!

traveler reviews for this acadia house rental

Summer vacation retreat

Review submitted: July 29, 2012   Date of arrival: July 21, 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Gatehouse this past week and were in for a wonderful suprise! The pictures of the house doesn't do it justice! We had never been to acadia national park before. Really beautiful! Went biking, hiking, kayaking on long pond. Great lobster at Trenton lobster pound, awesome scalops at Jordans snack shack. After being out all day and then coming home to the Gatehouse was incredible! We loved all the décor and special touches! I spent hours reading in the window seat soaking up the sunlight later in the afternoon or early in the am. Saw 2 deer playing in the backyard! We loved the open floor plan, high ceilings, long wood counter top to sit and eat breakfast at. Thank-you again for sharing your home with us. Be back soon!

Owners response: We're so pleased that folks find a pleasant surprise when they arrive at our "Gatehouse." Even when they don't write a review they write wonderful things in our guest book saying they couldn't have picked a better place for their home away from home, how central its location is to everything they want to do, the great book collection and sound system, and even the adults love exploring the Pine Cone Path looking for elves and gnomes! Thanks for the nice review and we hope you come back.

Books and Beach Walks and Kayaking

Review submitted: September 25, 2011   Date of arrival: August 29, 2011

This house is terrific! The house is beautifully appointed with a cheery and fully-equipped kitchen, a great counter to hang out at, and good views of the water. We felt at home immediately! If you're a reader (or a writer!), don't bother to bring books with you because this house is fully stocked with a great variety of literary novels, non-fiction, childrens, and interesting stuff like a huge coffee-table book of New York Times front pages dating back as far as you can think. Despite Acadia looming nearby, you might find it hard to get out of the window seat to explore it.

That said, we had three great paddles in our kayaks, directly from the beach, up the Jordan River and into Eastern Bay. Great launching spot just across a small meadow and orchard and a rocky beach that's easy to navigate, plus you can walk for miles in two directions when the tide is right.

Total privacy at the Gatehouse, which is at the very end of a dead-end road.

Lovely, lovely spot and every little detail is attended to. Very peaceful and aesthetically pleasing setting, both inside and out. Only a half hour to everything in Acadia, too, and a great farmer's market on the way so you can stock up on fresh local fruits and veggies.

You won't be disappointed!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: We love when our renters appreciate all the books we have in our house. I have always thought writers in particular would find it the perfect place to relax, to read and to write!
