Property Description:

Mill Cove is the perfect spot for a family summer getaway. You’ll start to relax as soon as you pull into the driveway and see the water’s edge welcoming you home. Located on the Union River Bay in Trenton, the house is a 10 minute drive (6 miles) from the head of Mount Desert Island and only 30 minutes to the village of Bar Harbor.

Escape the summer heat on the water, kayak and swim in front of the house, and cozy up to the fire pit in the evening as you watch the sun set over the bay - all while being able to visit Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, just a short drive away. Ellsworth’s historic Main Street for shopping and dining are close by too!

FIRST FLOOR: Kitchen looks out to the dining area and living room with bay window water views. Kitchen has plenty of counter and cabinet space to prepare family meals. Primary Bedroom with King bed has en-suite private bath with walk-in shower and walk-in closet. Two other bedrooms, one with Queen bed and one with a Double bed, share a full bath with walk-in shower. Deck off the dining area for easy access to the grill. A large sun porch provides lots of natural light with pretty views of the water.

LOWER LEVEL: Open, unfinished basement provides plenty of space for games, storage, and includes a ping-pong table with access to the front lawn and water.

OUTDOOR SPACES: Large lawn wraps around the home, with a picturesque brook emptying into the bay. The water side of the house has a firepit, picnic table, and corn hole lawn game. Two kayaks available for tenant use with adult sized life jackets.

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!


Mill Cove

Beautiful, comfortable, clean, great amenities, and great location. We were fortunate enough to be able to spend 3 weeks here and treasured every minute. Close to MDI, Schoodic Point, and Blue Hill. It was great to come home and spend the evenings at the fire pit watching the sunset, Used the outside lobster pot, the grill, and the kayaks. Really couldn't ask for a better house. It was really hard to leave and we're looking forward to coming back.

Lovely Spot!

Our first time to Acadia so I was a bit nervous about the location. It was perfect-easy to get to Bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor and everywhere else. The location was lovely-private, gorgeous views, very serene. The house was perfect-good sized bedrooms, super fully stocked kitchen, comfortable beds & furniture. Screened porch so pleasant, an entire unfinished basement with ping pong table and extra fridge. It was extremely hot in Maine the week we visited. Luckily, most rooms have ceiling fans, including all bedrooms. Plus a few extra. Also nights cooled down to the mid to high 60s so comfortable sleeping. We enjoyed taking dips in the cove at high tide, watching herons and even seagulls. The water view is very visible from the house, true eye candy. We were able to have an active trip to Acadia National Park, hiking a number of trails, visiting Sandy Beach and freshwater Echo Lake were refreshing. Ate lobster just about every day (Rodick’s in Southwest Harbor was our favorite). Thank you to the owners and The Knowles Company team for providing an excellent vacation spot!

We loved our stay at Mill Cove. The home is beautiful, clean and new. The yard and views amazing!!! Pictures don’t do justice to this property. We loved waking up here, enjoying a day out hiking and returning to the comforts of home to relax and enjoy a fire in the outside pit while overlooking the water. We enjoyed meals and games in the beautiful sunroom. Perfect vacation!

Great house great location

We stayed here for a week in August with our two children and one set of grandparents. The house was in the perfect location with very easy access to grocery stores and restaraunts. The view from the house was picturesque to say the least. Much time was spent on the porch taking it all on. We loved the water access and spent much time using the kayaks and swimming during high tide. The owners thought of everything and even left a bottle of wine for a welcome gift. We would definitely stay here again.

We absolutely loved our time at Mill Cove. The owners had truly thought of everything you could need and that was greatly appreciated. The beds, bedding and linens were all so nice. We were able to bring our dog which was a great opportunity. The kids loved the ping pong table! We had quite a few tournaments! The kitchen and eating area was plenty big. The master bath was really nice and modern. We kayayed every day right from the beach. The firepit was beautiful each night as the sun went down on the water. We would recommend this home to anyone. It is a little further since it is located before the bridge but we had no issues with that when we went in August. Highly recommend!

Mill Cove

Great property; so well appointed, clean, and comfortable. New appliances, tons of supplies, clean and uncluttered. Feels like the owners have thought of everything and provided it! Easy location to go into Ellsworth for supplies or head into Mt Desert Island, which was amazing. Very quiet, lovely view and setting, and family friendly. Our kids had a great time climbing and playing on the rocky beach at low tide (not really possible for true swimming, but figure it would be great for launching kayaks, which they also provided!). We also so appreciated that we could bring our dog. It's hard to find such a high quality rental that allows that. Overall, a lovely spot, and a great location for a family vacation.
