Description of the Lamoine vacation cottage rental

Since 2004, Cove House has been a great place to stay when visiting Acadia National Park. It is located in Marlboro,on the quiet side of Lamoine. From the comfortable deck, you have expansive views of Raccoon Cove, Frenchman Bay, Schoodic Point and the mountains of Mount Desert Island.

Enjoy Maine's natural beauty and the many attractions it offers while staying in this spotless log house that is just right for two or for a family of six. Cove House sits on a bluff about 25 feet above the Cove. It has a spacious, open-floor plan - a great room with a cathedral ceiling and two stories of windows for panoramic views of the Cove and beyond. The dining area and fully equipped kitchen provide everything you need for a pleasant eating experience.

A queen bedroom and a twin bedroom, fresh linens, a full bathroom with laundry facilities, lots of fluffy bath towels and beach towels, round off the first floor. French doors lead to the deck and a comfortable porch.

The second floor has master suite with king bed, dresser, desk, cable TV, large walk-in closet, and plenty of room for a crib and pack-and-play (provided as needed). The bathroom has a large jetted tub and separate shower. A hall closet holds linens, towels, extra bath rugs, puzzles and games. A loft overlooking the living room has comfortable seating and is ideal for board games, puzzles, chess or just reading a good book.

A bench and two Adirondacks overlook the water making it the perfect spot to sit and enjoy the views of the mountains of Acadia to the South, Frenchman Bay and the Schoodic Peninsula to the East, and Hancock Point and Marlboro Beach to the Northeast. There is access to the shore at only one spot on the property to protect the delicate vegetation and prevent erosion.

Children are welcome. We aim for a low allergen environment by keeping the property smoke- and pet- free.

Radiant heat on the first floor for cool Spring and Fall days keeps you warm and cozy as you walk around barefoot. The second floor has baseboard heat and warm wood floors.

Area Information

The cottage is stocked with many brochures, booklets and maps as well as a Maine DeLorme to help you find any activity and location. Cove House is 15 minutes from Ellsworth - the main city of Hancock County. Visit the Ellsworth Chamber of Commerce for more information. Grocery stores, cinema, LL Bean, Reny's, Marden's, specialty shops, hospital, restaurants, churches, trails, a town marina on the Union River, tennis club, hair and nail salons and therapeutic massages are all within 15 minutes by car.

Other Vacation Rental Amenities

One mile from Cove House is a pond where children enjoy splashing around (limited parking). At Cove House there is a granite outcropping at water's edge where our guests sit and watch their children enjoy the water (it is cold!). Area restaurants have child-friendly menus from hamburgers and hot dogs to boiled lobster and other seafood. Acadia is great for children with easy to difficult trails and hikes. Horses can be rented for rides along the carriage trails. Whale watching is a special experience. A picnic at Schoodic Point, an evening sail on a four-masted schooner, a kayak tour with a group are also favorites.

Absolutely Amazing

This is really a wonderful property. There were 5 of us 2 adults 3 teenagers. the house was perfect for us. The kitchen was well stock with kitchen utensils and even more items than we expected, like a big pot to cook lobsters in, and a cooler for our use.Plenty of extra linens and blankets to use. Loved having a washer and dryer to use, we all packed only 5 days of clothes in carry on bags for a two week stay, did not have to check our bags on the flight. We have stayed at many time shares and rented other homes and this one tops our list of favorites. We will definitely return to this home when we return. I would absolutely recommend this home to any one traveling to this area. Lynda, you have done a great job with the place. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.

Beyond Expectations

This is a lovely home with that is very comfortable with a great view. After driving through the pouring rain and arriving we all agreed that it was beyond our expectations...truly the best of Maine. It is near to many local beaches as well as Acadia National Park. Everything we needed for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. Owners provided a crib, pack & play, high chair and stroller which made packing for the trip with my family much easier. The home is absolutely beautiful with an open concept layout . So, while cooking, we could all be involved in the process. A short walk and sunrise over the cove can be viewed with the Acadia Mts. on the horizon. Very peaceful. We hiked and toured all day coming back to a relaxing and lovely vacation "home". I would recommend this as a great family vacation location and we hope to return next year.

Great House - Great Time

Our family had a wonderful time staying at the Cove House. The house was well appointed - it had everything we needed to thoroughly enjoy our stay. We truly felt that it was our home away from home. We highly recommend to anyone planning to vacation in the Lamoine area.

Lynda Tadema-Wielandt

Owner's reply:

Your visit to Cove House was memorable in that your roots are right in Lamoine! It was a pleasure having you here, and we hope you got some good results in your genealogical research. The Lamoine Historical Society is a great source of that kind of information.

Best wishes for a great summer. We look forward to seeing you again.

What a wonderful time we had at your cottage Lynda and Chris. It rained the whole time we were there but we enjoyed every moment of our stay! You made our visit to the Bar Harbor area just perfect. We live in an area of Pennsylvania that is so beautiful but to get away and stay in such a confortable place was just what we needed. (Oh, by the way, the Silverware was such a nice touch.) We did get to see the beautiful red fox and saw the evidence of the bear passing through. We were hoping to see more wild-life but since it rained so much they were all sleeping somewhere I guess. I would love to recommend the cabin for just anyone who would like to have a "real" vacation. Could not get any place better! I've been talking about it to everyone since I got home. Thank you again--and we will be back there as soon as we can. We would love to come up in the winter. Even if we got snowed in for a week it would be a wonderful place to be. Cj, Gary, Linda and Fred

It was so nice to have the opportunity to meet you. I was delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Cove House in spite of the weather! We thank you for your comments and hope your next visit is full of sun shine and warm days. The weather finally broke on Memorial Day!
Look forward to seeing you again.

The owner provided absolutely everything imaginable for our use, from a bookcase full of carefully chosen and catalogued books, to every cooking utensil, pot, pan, spice that we could imagine. We were very sorry to go, the views, the cabin itself and the proximity to Acadia were all first rate. We definately plan to stay there agagin.

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Jan. I hope you get to enjoy your next visit to Maine with bright sunshine and low humidity, not the rain you got this time!
We appreciate your comments and would be delighted to have you back.

Peace and fun

We had an amazing time at the Cove House! It is on the most beautiful cove with eagles, osprey, porcupine, and squirrel as constant companions. We have a 1 year old, and all baby amenities were provided!! The house itself has everything you could need, is so comfortable and well-appointed. We enjoyed hanging at the house, hiking in Acadia, exploring the surrounding area, and of course, eating lobster at local restaurants and at home (all supplies for cooking them at home are also provided!) We highly recommend the Cove House!

Lynda Tadema-Wielandt

Owner's reply:

Dear Colleen,
We're delighted that you enjoyed Cove House! I'm so glad you used the baby items. Having grandchildren, I understand why it's so much easier for parents if they don't need to travel with all those extras. You need to carry enough as it is!
You are welcome any time at Cove House. It was a pleasure having you there.

Northern Exposure

This spectacular property provided a warm and welcoming "home" base from which to share with our kids (7 and 5) the many wonderful adventures my wife and I have cherished from Maine and Acadia - our 3rd visit to Mt. Desert. This cabin is so well appointed, we thought we were in a spec house from Log Home magazine. Early mornings on the bench, sipping coffee and watching the local clammers and lobstermen ply their trade in the cove, while the birds and wildlife romped about in the dawn light was the perfect start to every day and will be remembered forever. While close to all the popular attractions, Cove House also fosters exploration of the many smaller coastal towns often overlooked. We love exploring off the beaten path. We lacked for nothing (in accommodations and activities) during our stay. Biking, hiking, swimming, sightseeing, and of course...eating. Wish we had another week.



Beautiful setting

Picturesque and serene. Loaded with amenities and close to most any thing you would like to do in Maine. Enjoyed the cottage and the surrounding area and definitely will rent again
