vacation rental description

Beautifully decorated one bedroom vacation rental apartment in a quiet coastal village.  Recently renovated and refurnished in the winter of 2012 after a long term tenant of thirteen years had a change of circumstances and moved back home to Ohio.  In fact, when we had to come up with a name for the apartment, he had lived there so long and had become such a part of everyones lives we were seriously tempted to call it "Fred's Place" and privately still do refer to it that way but that's another story.  Anyway, I think my favorite feature is the black granite and white ceramic tiled kitchen floor.  We try very hard to maintain it very clean and in above average condition.

It's perfect for a party of two persons on a budget and as we expected it is a big summer hit with newlyweds since it rents Sunday to Sunday during July  and August.

activities and attractions in Acadia Maine

During tourists season L.L.Bean helps sponsor a free shuttle bus service that tours the park and the tip of the peninsula. The bus runs every half hour or so and stops are scattered around.  Not that it matters since the drivers are more than happy to pick you up if you wave them down from the side of the road.  Anyway in the immediate area there are shops, stores, restaurants, piers, a golf course, a few coops to buy your lobsters and allot more.   If you really enjoy the ocean and don't mind getting wet then rent or bring a kayak and meander through the bays and coves.   Ride out and see the seals basking on the rocks on the other side of Turtle Island, the osprey nesting near the Halibut Hole or the lighthouse on Mark Island.

It is about a mile from the entrance to Acadia National Park where you can bike or hike the trails.   The first thing you will come to after you enter the park is Frazier’s Point picnic area that juts out on a finger of land overlooking the harbor and the town.   There is a long pier with a float attached that people fish for mackerel, bluefish and striper's when they run.   From here you'll have spectacular views of the mountains, Mark Island Lighthouse and you can watch the harbor porpoises, gulls, osprey and of course the lobstermen pulling in the days catch.  The views are nothing less than magnificent and many have spent the entire vacations right there.   I know, I spend enough time there myself.  We love to picnic by the fire in the evenings.  And I'm not really sure why but lobsters always seem to taste that much better there.  Words can't really describe time in this place.

Next, hike or drive to the top of Schoodic Mountain to see some breathtaking sunrises, sunsets and a commanding view of the area, ocean and islands.  On a clear day you can see the Pettit Mannan lighthouse and preserve on the next peninsula over.  From there, head out to the point relax or picnic and gaze straight out into the Atlantic.  It can be really spectacular if there has been a storm at sea.   People come from all around to watch the waves break over the rocks.  And actually it's pretty much spectacular almost any given day.

There is also freshwater swimming and canoeing at Jones Pond (5 miles away).  Or enjoy fishing for its landlocked salmon, brook trout, lake trout and bass.

If you are a leaf peeper and plan on visiting to view New England’s fall foliage in all it's colors.   The leaves generally reach their peak in October and can be quite spectacular.

And finally if you want to see the coast of Maine as it should be seen.  Hop on the ferry.  But don’t forget to look up when you are on the pier. Believe it or not I can’t count the number of times over the years that I have had to point out the eagles sitting atop the utility pole.  First you will head out by Mark Island Light, then around Grindstone point and then either through the narrows between Turtle and Spectacle Islands or through the Halibut Hole.  On the trip you’ll see seals, porpoises, ospreys and round many small islands.  Some with secluded cottages, camps and cabins that time has forgotten.   Sometimes and quite often as a matter of fact moose swim between the mainland and the islands.  There are also the occasional sea turtles, whales and on rare occasions one of the most unusual looking fish you have probably ever seen, a sunfish.  They average around 400-600 pounds downeast but can get as large as 3000 pounds.  You can get right up and pet them if you like. They are very friendly, curious and primarily eat jellyfish.    Anyway, it's a really gorgeous trip and the views from the ocean give you an entirely different perspective.  The trip ends as you pull up to the docks in downtown. Here you can have remote, secluded, quiet or crowds anytime you want, it's your call.

Anyway, wherever you vacation this year. Hope it's a great one. ~ Wes
