About this area:

Known as the 'Gateway to Acadia,' Trenton and Lamoine enjoy mainland proximity to Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park, with access to the expansive Union River Bay and Mt. Desert Narrows. Home to several local lobster pounds and close to Ellsworth dining, many homes in this area enjoy spectacular views of Mt. Desert's peaks, and swimming is generally warmer in the bay waters. Lamoine's public sandy beach, Trenton Community Trails, Wild Acadia Fun Park, and the Stanwood Bird Sanctuary are just a few of its attractions!



The house was perfect and had the loveliest views. Great proximity to the park, Bar Harbor and many wonderful lobster pounds. We can't wait to go back.

Leisure - family vacation

We could not have been more comfortable at the Sea Gypsy! It was so well appointed! It's exterior view is spectacular. The home itself is beautiful and full of interesting artwork. We preferred its location to Bar Harbor proper, as it is less crowded, with less traffic. Highly recommend it!

I have stayed at many properties in and around Bar Harbor. This was, by far, our most favorite house. Every single thing you could need or want. Beautiful furnishings, gorgeous water view and access, and plenty of room for everyone and spacious for dinner guests. We have family and friends in the area and it was a delight to show off this gorgeous rental home!

The house was amazing! Everything was top of the line and there was not an item that we needed. The decor was beautiful. House was spotless. Plenty of room for the six of us to spread out. Views of the water were wonderful. House was located in a great spot for trips to Bar Harbor and Acadia.

Family vacation

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sea Gypsy. It is so clean and well equipped. Delighted that we could bring our dog. Great location for our first time in Maine. Enjoyed kayaking the bay at Sea Gypsy where we saw many seals! Loved hiking & biking in Acadia. Thank you Gordon’s for the helpful notes regarding the house, restaurants, etc. Wonderful experience for our 3 - 20 something boys, my husband and me. Thank you!!
