    About this property

    Ledgeview: Comfortable Home in Woods Near Ocean, Lakes, and Mountains, Acadia

    Vacation home with patio, near Acadia National Park
    Secluded, open-plan, large, comfortable log home, with warm wood-beamed and cathedral ceilings, full-length deck, 3 bedrooms with double beds and one queen-size bed, open loft with reading nook, upstairs and downstairs baths and bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, washer-dryer, WiFi, DVD, DirectTV, futon sofas sleep extras, Vose upright piano. Indoor and outdoor dining with gas grill, charcoal grill. Private wooded lot with ample parking and room for boat trailers. Centrally located on Mt Desert Island with Acadia National Park’s scenic views, swimming, hiking, boating, biking, kayaking. Central to picturesque Somesville, Bar Harbor with its shopping and night life, Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor with their libraries, museums, churches, groceries, and shopping. Fresh and saltwater boat launches and rentals nearby. 2 miles from ADK camp. Hiking: Favorite hikes include 1) Beach Mountain, the nearest mountain to Ledgeview, with great views, some scrambling up ledge, but enjoyed by even 3 or 4 year olds. Moderate difficulty 2) The South Bubble, about a 25-minute climb up stairsteps built into the mountainside with great views of Jordan Pond and out to sea. 3) Gorge trail up Mt. Cadillac 4) Walk to Jordan Pond along carriage road then have popovers and tea Swimming & paddling: Our favorite swimming areas are: 1) Long Pond, about 1 1/2 miles from Ledgeview, where there is a roped-off swimming area with float, near the dock and ramp where rental canoes and kayaks can be put in from the rental place across the road from the swimming area. Wildlife includes ducks, loons, and eagles nesting in the next bay around the point. Porta potty but no changing booths 2) Echo Lake, including the beach area at the end toward SW Harbor, with lifeguards, toilets, changing rooms, foot rinser, ramp for wheelchairs; for adults or older children who are good swimmers, the bluffs are a favorite spot because children like to jump or dive into the water from the rocky shore. About 3 miles. There is a Park public toilet at the edge of the parking area (for Acadia Mountain) 3) Sand Beach, a must, but suitable for wading only without a wet suit, except on hot August days. Requires an Acadia Park pass to reach the beach, unless you find the back roads to a nearby parking area. Peaceful pursuits: Garden enthusiasts will like 1) the Azalea Garden in Northeast Harbor, modeled after Japanese gardens, beautiful in any season even when the azaleas and rhododendrons are past. 2) Thuya Garden, Northeast harbor, with wooden gates carved by Charles Savage. Check with the Park information center for dates and times then the Rockefeller garden is open, near Seal Harbor. There are often paying garden tours on a Saturday afternoon, with visits to a number of homes. Concerts. There is a lot of music available in the summer months, including a jazz festival, a chorale (usually early August at the Episcopal Church in Bar Harbor), and delightful (and free) band concerts in the park in Bar Harbor, Monday and Thursday at peak season.

    5/5 Excellent

    Great time. Perfect setting. The home had everything we could want.

    Wish we could have stayed longer. Mt. Desert has so much to offer- so much to see and do. This home is so conveniently located for roving all around the island, but then returning "home" for a cozy night in the woods. Great deck.

    5/5 Excellent

    Lovely, peaceful retreat.

    We highly recommend this property. It is a convenient location to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. It is comfortable, roomy, and super clean. The property is nestled in the trees so that it is secluded, but it is close enough to the road that it is easy to access. The owners have thought of everything a guest may need and want. The kitchen is fully stocked with every utensil and pan imaginable, so that cooking is effortless. We loved this location and felt like we were visiting a friend's home.

    5/5 Excellent

    Comfortable house, well equipped, great comminication

    We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this house. Lora communicated consistently and gave us good information before the trip including directions to the property. The house is stocked with every item one could imagine needing and it was clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again. Easily accommodates six people.

    5/5 Excellent

    Great vacation home for a family

    Lovely home in the woods with good space for the six of us. Lora and Dick's home is in a great location - very quiet but convenient to Bar Harbor, Acadia and great hiking.

    5/5 Excellent

    Amazing house with a great host!!!

    We had amazing vocation in the Ledgeview house and Acadia. The location is perfect and very quite and the house has everything you need, clean, beautiful and comfortable. The house is also perfect when you come with small kids as it has everything you need and even gates! Lora was an amazing host! She was very easy to reach for and helped in everything. Lora provided so much useful information about what to do around that it made our life much easier. Thank you Lora for a perfect vocation (it was really important for us :)).
