These are just the immediate amenities. The list of potential daytrips from Robins Nest.

Keep an eye out for loons, & eagles ~ all are common sights on Georges Pond. Moose, bear, fox & deer have all also been seen, but are more rarely seen than the other wildlife.

Kayakers will revel in the beaches & shore. Your experiences here will last a lifetime. Well-behaved pets are most welcome at Robin's Nest. Fido will not miss his daily exercise with an evening ball or Frisbee session before dinner on the day you tackle one of the park’s challenging ladder trails.

Stay TWO Weeks -- You'll Be Glad You Did!

Review submitted: September 2, 2013   Date of arrival: August 17, 2013

My family of 5 (2 adults, 2 kids age 10 + 12, and Ginger the dog) had an absolutely wonderful time at Robin's Nest on our first 2-week vacation ever. Plenty to do right at the cottage -- kayaking, swimming, exploring the lake, and relaxing on the porch. Plus Acadia just 30-45 minutes away for whale watching, hiking, biking and taking in some truly magnificent views. Wonderful to be immersed in nature seeing birds and animals we never get to see in suburbia -- bald eagles, osprey, otters and porcupines.

Robin's Nest was clean, comfortable, and well equipped and owners were very friendly and helpful. They came out immediately when the weather turned cool and we asked to have the gas fireplace activated. They gave us useful local knowledge about the diving board and island to explore across the lake, best place to buy produce, etc. We especially loved having 6 kayaks so the whole family (even Ginger!) could paddle together.

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

Very Nice but.....

Review submitted: August 19, 2013   Date of arrival: August 3, 2013

Very secluded property. You'll drive a mile on a gravel road. Neighbors are quiet. Very relaxing. Eagles flying around especially in the morning. My husband loved sitting out by the lake before the rest of us got up. Adequate for 4 people. Bunk house not optimal for sleeping. Air mattress came in very handy.

Take bottled water as the well water isn't the best tasting.

Dryer door broke and the owner had it fixed quickly.

Only big complaint was the bathroom wasn't clean. Black hair all over the tub and under the mat. Found leaves under rugs in bath and toilet wasn't cleaned completely. Told owner about hair in tub but the owner didn't send the cleaning crew back in - which would have been greatly appreciated.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, romantic getaway

Owners response: While we have had many wonderful reviews, the ones like this concern us most. We use a bonded cleaning staff and they did seem to fall down on their duties this time. I spoke with the renter and the cleaning staff about the issues, but the renter did not ask to have the bathroom "re-cleaned", which we would have happily done. We have taken steps to ensure that this doesn't happen again! Thank you for the feedback, we truly appreciate it! it is our goal to make your vacation in our home memorable!

Amazing Vacation!

Review submitted: July 29, 2013   Date of arrival: July 20, 2013

Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us. The cottage was clean and comfortable. The two oldest boys enjoyed having their own space while utilizing the bunk house.

As soon as we arrived at the cottage one of the boys cut himself on our bike trailer. I was far from unpacked and had no clue where my first aid kit was. To my surprise, the cottage was stocked with basic supplies including band-aids. Thank you for providing us access to supplies that we either forgot or could not easily locate.

The boys loved the pond, which honestly is what I would consider a lake. The kayaks were a family favorite. The boys will have fond memories of paddling out to the rock island and jumping off the diving board. I could not get enough of watching the eagles dive into the pond for their mid-morning snack. Everyone on the the pond was so friendly.

I could not of imagined finding a more perfect cottage to enjoy our Maine vacation. The fresh flowers and homemade cookies put the "welcome" beyond our expectations. Connie provided us with some fantastic information on the less-known parks to visit. She was great to work with. I highly recommend Robin's Nest. Everything (minus the occasional poison ivy) was perfect!
