Puffin House is beautiful and the scenery is breathtaking

October 12, 2023

We loved our stay. Puffin House is beautiful and the scenery is breathtaking. Loved sitting outdoors watching the bay. The house is very roomy and nicely decorated. We visited nearby Blue Hill for some shopping and to eat at two local restaurants. Watching the orange moon come up and “cue the coyotes!!” was quite an experience. We wished we’d had longer time to stay. Definitely check this out for your next Maine coast get away.

Our group of 6 Maine artists had a wonderful time staying in Puffin Rock. So many beautiful places to paint in and around Brooklin. Well equipped kitchen with a gas stove is a real plus.

Puffin Rock checked all of our boxes for a fantastic 2-week family vacation with extended family and local relatives in nearby Brooklin. The kayaks and SUP’s, expansive beach access, fire pit, deck and overlook seating near the beach provided so many ways to enjoy the woods and coastline. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking in, and the house was roomy enough for everyone to feel comfortable. The proximity to Brooklin, with its nice market, a few good restaurants, a great library, the Wooden Boat School, and plenty of hiking trails just out of town meant there was something for everyone to enjoy. We look forward to another visit!

Thoroughly enjoyed it! Would come back in a heartbeat!

My family and friends all enjoyed our stay at Puffin Rock! The house had ample space, was very clean with plenty of supplies, and the access to the water/beach was amazing! I walked the beach area all but one morning; it was so peaceful. Plenty of things were provided to occupy the kids when the weather was bad. It is a bit of a drive to Acadia, but not unbearable, and after the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor it was nice to come back to quiet. The pace of life felt so much slower in Maine, and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Would come back in a heartbeat!

Puffin Rock was a great place for my family

June 19, 2023

Puffin Rock was a great place for my family & my sisters family to stay. There were nine of us who stayed there….4 adults & then our children ranging from 19 years old to 15 years old. The four full baths were a blessing & the 5 bedrooms with comfortable beds was a bonus. There was plenty of towels, wash cloths, kitchen appliances & dishes. The view was breathtaking & the peacefulness around the house was exactly what we needed. The boys thoroughly enjoyed the canoe & kayaks & the adults enjoyed sitting around the camp fire. We would also go out at night & gaze at the millions of stars in the sky. We ventured into Acadia & Bar Harbor while we were there. It took us right at an hour to reach our destinations in Acadia, but we knew that going in so we weren’t surprised by it. Acadia has the most beautiful scenery around & everyone we met was super friendly. I encourage everyone to go there… I would highly recommend this quaint place to anyone. We were not ready to leave.

Perfect Maine getaway

Lovely house with lots of room for large families to spread out in several rooms. Bunk beds and one queen room are in separate area of the house, which is nice for teenagers or an individual family. Ample water toys. Kayaks: 1 tandem, 2 single adult, and 2 single kid. Plus 2 paddle boards and a super fun floating raft like thing that the kids loved. We spent a lot of time on the deck, which was lovely. Would definitely stay again. Thanks for sharing your home!

Great home, great view!

We loved this property. It was large and spacious for our family of 10. Lots of room to spread out. The home was fully stocked with anything we needed!
We loved using the kayaks, grill, and fire pit. Contact with the property management company was excellent, though we didn’t require much because we had all the info we needed in the Welcome book in the home.
The property was very clean. We saw lots of deer, rabbits, and birds right from the house.
I gave the online details section 4 stars because it shows the home as 7.4 miles from Acadia National Park. It was over 1-hour drive to the park, which was fine, but before our stay, I was under the impression we would be a lot closer.

Thank you for a great stay!

Host’s response:
Thanks so much for the wonderful review! We’re so pleased your family enjoyed this amazing waterfront home and all the fantastic things it has to offer. It seems as if VRBO lists Acadia National Park as being 7.4 miles away but its “as the crow flies” across the water. A bit far in a kayak! Mystery solved!
