Welcome to our Amish-built cabin, completed in December 2016 (which explains the snowy views). The interior is entirely knotty pine (floors, walls and ceilings);there is a large screened porch. The house sits on 3 secluded acres, 250 feet from the road; a small stream runs through the property. Wild turkeys run through the backyard, and you can sometimes hear the loons on Leonard Lake. Ellsworth abounds in interesting restaurants and summer activities and is 20 minutes from Acadia National Park.

The space

This is a unique modular cabin! Constructed in Pennsylvania in an Amish factory, it was delivered in 2 pieces and lowered by giant crane onto the full basement foundation in September of 2016. It has many charming features, such as the very wide farmhouse windowsills and the Danish wood stove. With a nod to resource conservation, the water heater is on-demand (endless hot water!), and the toilet is dual flush. There are 2 bedrooms and one bath; there are ceiling fans throughout the house, and many outlets for charging your devices in both bedrooms. Central heat is provided by a propane furnace, as needed, or cozy up next to the woodstove on cool nights. There is a gas range, a large refrigerator, a portable dishwasher, and microwave. Having said this, the kitchen is quite small and there is limited counter space; elaborate meal preparation would be difficult. All appliances are new.

Guest access

You will have access to all rooms of the house (the 2 bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom, deck, and outside property), EXCEPT for the basement. I will set aside space in the refrigerator for guests, as well as kitchen shelf space, and cabinet space in the bathroom.
I will have a small, single-person kayak (plus paddle, life jacket, and cartop carrier) available for use on one of the many local lakes. Leonard Lake does not support recreational use, although it is inviting. It's a public water supply.

Interaction with guests

I work in the area, and will be available to answer any questions.

Other things to note

The driveway is shared by 2 other households. The driveway is L-shaped, with the short portion connecting to the road. There are 2 house trailers on either side of this shorter part of the driveway on the road (I own the driveway but allow them to use it). My cabin is set 200+ feet back into the woods, and there is a line of trees largely hiding these trailers.

A Cabin in the Woods exceeded my expectations. The cabin is lovely and super clean. The beds were very comfortable. My husband is a TV junky and I was secretly happy to find there was not a TV in the cabin. The cabin would be perfect for a couple looking for a romantic getaway. It's also great for those that want to get closer to a nature without camping. Susan is a great host!

Thank you for your very nice review, Lynn! I'm so happy you were comfortable, even without a TV :). Actually, I keep one in the coat closet, with a cable, for those junkies who would perish without it--it's a little bit of a production to set it up. Glad your husband survived!

Susan's cabin is very clean and comfortable. It was a good size for a family of four. It's in a scenic area and a 15-minute walk to the charming town of Ellsworth. We chose the location as a convenient base for exploring Acadia/Bar Harbor. Susan was a very good host, and we appreciated her binder of information about local attractions. I would highly recommend this rental.

This is a wonderful place to stay in Maine! Susan's recommendations for activities and food were very helpful. We loved how secluded the cabin felt to relax on the front porch; yet, we were very close to downtown Ellsworth for food and an enjoyable short drive to Acadia National Park. Perfect!

Beautiful wood house. Susan is super friendly and helpful. With the exception of a washing machine it had everything we needed. We felt very much welcome and at home.

Response from Susan:
Thanks for the nice review. Yes, I'm working on the washing machine project. I'm going to get one of those stackables with the dryer, so it will fit in the little closet--but it has to be propane, which is a bit unusual. Next summer, I promise!

Nice and clean cabin in the woods. Our stay was shortened and had to leave early so didn't get a full experience of the area.

Response from Susan:
Thanks, Kim. I hope you can come back for a real visit sometime. Acadia is perfect in the fall.
