Quick Overview of my Treetop-Retreat Suite
Located on a private wooded road, one minute from Long Pond and central to the splendor of Acadia National Park, Treetop Retreat is only two minutes from the town-center of Southwest Harbor, or 25 minutes from downtown Bar Harbor, making it readily accessible to all the Island’s delightful restaurants and shops, yet still on the “Quietside” for a perfect retreat experience on your vacation.

Treetop-Retreat has two lodging choices. Though this listing is for the deluxe Suite, there is also a separate listing for the Apartment, if you are in need of kitchen facilities. Each lodging has: a private entrance; an intimate, private second story deck off the bedroom looking out onto the surrounding wooded area; a comfy queen bed with heavenly soft microfiber sheets; relaxing love seat; entertaining Apple TV; tub/shower with Jacuzzi; a basket of toiletry items is made available should you happen to have left something at home; plenty of fresh towels provided for your personal care, as well as towels that can be used for outdoor activities; homemade blueberry muffins at your arrival; a refrigerator with orange juice and half-and-half; microwave; coffee maker with the choice of decaf, or regular medium or dark roast, or an electric percolator for black or herbal tea; and of course, air conditioning and heat
The deluxe Suite has some special touches such as: a roomy private deck off of the bedroom surrounded by wonderful trees and an 11’ diameter umbrella with LED lights, so that the deck can be used no matter what the weather, location of the sun, or time of day
It also has two separate bathroom areas, one with a sink and its Jacuzzi being in a larger garden-type tub, and the other with a sink, bidet, and toilet. To help provide a relaxing experience the leather love seat in the suite has a recliner on each side; and the wall hung, flat screen Apple TV can be pivoted toward the bed or the love seat. Then after you are rested up and spent some time relaxing your muscles in the Jacuzzi from exploring the exciting adventures of Acadia, there is a large information rack to entice you into planning further Island exploits and escapades
In addition to your private deck you have access to the large deck in the front of the property tucked into the woods, which has a fire pit and fire box with all that is needed for relaxing by the fire in the evening. There is also a large 6 burner gas grill with a side burner, and outdoor patio dining furniture. Additionally, the patio dining furniture can be screened in, should the mosquitos be a challenge (a Thermacell is also available, should you prefer). If you desire to steam your own lobsters, crabs, clams, or mussels, the proper equipment is available so that you can do that right on this deck, where you can then enjoy your Downeast feast on the outdoor patio dinette

Guest access
You will have your own parking space just off the blacktop and past the main entry door to the house, so that you can come and go as you please, as well as have easy access to the private entrance to the outside stairs around the corner of the house, which lead up to the private deck outside your bedroom in complete privacy. There is also plenty of storage for you to enjoy, including the full utilization of a 6' closet in the bedroom, as well as a chest of drawers, a full bureau with drawers, and two high, back-saving luggage racks, should you prefer to use them

My home is located just "down the street" from Long Pond, the largest lake in the National Park, in a quiet, wooded, dead-end road with about 15 households, the majority of whom are full-time residents of Southwest Harbor. Most of the homes are a Cape-Cod style residence, with a couple two-story colonials like ours

We all value the quietude for which you are looking, and which Acadia imparts to those who make their pilgrimage to visit or live here. From the moment you make the turn off of Freeman Ridge Road onto Ridge Acres Lane, you will be enticed by a glimpse of the allure of the sea that surrounds our Island, as you gaze upon the masts of a sailboat or two moored in Somes Sound's Valley Cove off in the distance

Without a doubt, you will know that you are going to experience a marvelous adventure, whether a quiet one of healing as you drive around the Park Loop, or sit as you soak in its majestically abundant panoramas, or thrill to boating upon the ocean or lakes, or explore its many miles of trails and carriage paths. No matter where you end up staying, welcome to the powerful, ancient charm and attraction of Acadia

Thank you for considering having Treetop-Retreat, your vacation home away from home!
