East Lodge is in Hancock, Maine, 15 miles past Ellsworth and quite near Bar Harbor. My cabin overlooks Jellison Cove and the Porcupine Islands, is in the woods, a short walk from the beach, and about half an hour from Mt. Desert Island, home of Acadia National Park where there are multitudes of things to do for young and old. Visitors are welcome to stroll through my gardens. (I am a professional landscape designer). The sitting room/dining area are comfy and great for family chats. You can eat at the library sized table, overlooking the ocean view or on the screened porch or the deck…- Adirondak chairs rest on my mossy ‘lawn’ overlooking the ocean vista through the tall spruce trees or snooze in the hammock under the pines. You can even dine on the brand new picnic table as you watch the red sailed boats out of Bar Harbor. WiFi is available. There is a TV with a DVD player and decent phone reception.
I am a working artist and sell my work in local galleries. Some teaching is available upon request.
From Hancock, it is a quick ride to Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor; in the other direction, you can go to Schoodic, the quieter part of Acadia. In both parks, there are awesome trails to bike and hike. There are several delicious and cute restaurants within 15 minutes and you are just 15 miles from Ellsworth, the cultural center of the area. And one can rent bikes, kayaks and canoes from a local sports shop.
Flights go directly to Bangor which is about an hour from my house….you can get a car at the airport. Another option is to fly to Bar Harbor Airport – about 35 minutes from EastLodge. The scenery is unbeatable!
I hope you’ll come and see beautiful Maine.
