Lamoine, Maine
This cute cottage, known as the Candy Cottage, has an incredible ocean view and is close to everything that Bar Harbor and the Acadia Region have to offer. Walk to the end of the lane and down our private stairway to access the rocky coast.

You can kayak (not provided), clam, mussel, and collect sea glass and other fun treasure. Very family friendly. It has been our family’s favorite place for generations and now many other familys' as well. You will never run out of things to do at the Candy Cottage and you will always feel relaxed looking out the picture window, seeing mountains over the ocean view while eating your fresh Maine lobster dinner! All at a very reasonable price.

Off-season (before Memorial Day or after Labor Day) rates are also available & you get to enjoy the park like a local.

The helpful and informative owner is just the tip of the iceberg at the Candy Cottage...! NEGATIVES: unassuming exterior, location hard by road, "Seasonal Rates" sign (all turned the wife off -- she didn't want to go in!) POSITIVES: everything else. Add to the amenities...More
