Relaxing, beautiful home with breathtaking sights and sounds in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Sadly we left your lovely home at Kissick Point but took with us hearts stuffed full of beautiful moments, breathtaking scenery and unforgettable family memories! We found your home so complete with every convenience and comfort one could ask. The decor was welcoming in pleasing colors and design. We had room to spread out and room to come together.

Each day I awoke to incredible views of the bay, eagles soaring, chipmunks scampering and the sound of a little white fishing boat puttering by. We enjoyed a week of perfect weather which allowed us to get out and see all the area had to offer including two visits to Bar Harbor (walk across the land bridge was fantastic!) and thoroughly checked out Acadia National Park... what a treasure! We loved the cute little town of Ellsworth as well!

We witnessed many gorgeous sunsets but our last evening there the sky outdid itself with spectacular colors we will not forget!

Thank you, Daria and Scott, for sharing your lovely, lovely home! ❤️We hope to return one day!

Property was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited over the 4th of July and loved how private this home was. The house resides on its own beach which opens into the bay. Absolutely beautiful. Our 7-year-old twin grandchildren loved searching for crabs and shells each day. The house came fully furnished with everything that would guarantee our comfort, from fluffy new towels to a lobster pot. Even though we drove to the park daily, we found good restaurants in Ellsworth(only 3 miles away) with no wait time this busy week. The home owners were very organized and easy to contact. A welcome letter with detailed instructions prior to our visit was very helpful. It was a vacation that my entire family will remember for years to come. Thank you owners!

Our family enjoyed our stay in your beautiful cozy home.

We had plenty of space to spread out, especially with the 2 living rooms. The nice walking trail was a bonus!!!

great house. great location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, large house in very private setting directly on Union Bay, yet only 3 miles from Ellsworth. Accommodated our family of 10 very well. Owners very easy to work with. House, including the kitchen, has everything you might need except for a kayak, but that was easy enough to rent from Kayak1. Amazing water views from every room. Able to access the water using Kissick Point walking path. Amazingly enough, for those who love the water, water temperature at Kissick point is at least 10 degrees warmer than the surrounding area, likely due to the close proximity of the Union River. We even harvested some oysters at Kissick Point! Westward view gave us great sunsets.

House is about 10-12 minutes to the Trenton Bridge leading to MDI and 30 minutes to downtown Bar Harbor. Acadia is fabulous.

Most Amazing Maine Vacation Location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beyond amazing. It was very thoughtfully and generously stocked with everything from kitchen supplies to entertainment items; I was astounded. The beautiful grounds with sunsets, campfires, and privacy made our stay exceptional. We visited Acadia National Park each day and found many interesting stops for our family of 8 (6 ages 16-24 and 2 over 60). Everything was very clean and well cared for. The furnishings were comfortable and attractive. Each contact with the owners was handled professionally and pleasantly. We would stay in the same house if given the chance; it was wonderful. The deck had tables and chairs and there was a picnic table near the camp fire for eating outdoors.

Very private beautiful oasis

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I enjoyed the beautiful home so much. There were views from every room in the house, including the hallway and bathrooms. The furniture was new, beds very comfy, upscale with all the amenities (although clocks in the bedrooms would be nice). We enjoyed a.m. coffee and watching the sunset every day on the deck, only getting chased in a few times by mosquitos and black flies. The gas grill worked perfectly. The six of us enjoyed our "birthday week" very much. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a private get away.
