Gorgeous lake house close to Acadia and Bar Harbor
My husband, two boys and I spent one week at this beautiful, clean lake house. It’s a short ride to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The house is completely stocked with everything you could possibly need. We had access to a small row boat and two kayaks. We enjoyed kayaking to a small beach just a few houses down where my boys enjoyed jumping off the rocks. The lake is very peaceful, perfect after a long morning of hiking or biking in Acadia. There is no AC but there is a ceiling fan in every room which helped. The basement is very cool if you need to escape the heat. We absolutely loved this property and hope to return next year. The owners are very sweet and helpful as well.
we had a wonderful time
This was our fifth VRBO rental house vacation over the past 4 years and it was the best. If anything, the pictures undervalue it. The invitation to use the boats, bikes, fishing gear, etc was a huge plus.
Stunning house, pristine lake!
You will not be disappointed! Beautiful home, with all the amenities! Grill, boat, kayaks, dock, lake float, every imaginable kitchen gadget! Wood was bundled on the grounds for use in the fire pit, and the owner even left his tackle out for use! Would book this again without hesitation!
Fantastic House on the lake with easy access to Acadia
Our family had a great vacation in Maine. The house was very well maintained and extremely clean. We enjoyed the lake and the dock. Marty was very hospitable during our stay. A very short trip to Acadia Park and the coast.
Great Lake access and beautiful house
We had a great time and enjoyed the amenities.
Exactly as described
We really enjoyed our time at the Branch Lake Cottage. It is everything that it was advertised to be. The home is spacious, clean, and well maintained. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen has very nice appliances and every tool you might need. While there are some neighbors on either side, it still feels secluded and the view of the lake is beautiful. We didn't experience much boat traffic (just some fishermen and the occasional jet ski) and the lake is not overly developed so it was perfect for canoeing and kayaking. It's nice having the public beach about a half-mile away - close enough to walk to if you want but not so close as to be a nuisance. If we were to make any suggestions, it would be for a more permanent stone fire pit rather than the metal style. Thank you to Marty and John for letting us use their home. We really enjoyed it and hope to return soon.
