Great Ledge House – Lamoine, Maine
Thank you for your interest in our house in Lamoine, Maine. It is located on Great Ledge,
which is a dirt road leading out onto the Great Ledge peninsula. This peninsula goes out
into Frenchman Bay, which then opens out to the Atlantic Ocean. The tides are very
extreme this far north and the coves in front of our house and off our little peninsula fill
up at full tide; and then the water recedes completely at low tide to show the mud flats.
The constant tidal changes enhance the bird life in our area.
The house is located 5.5 miles outside of Ellsworth, Maine. Ellsworth is a busy community
which provides the jump off point out to Mount Desert Island where Bar Harbor, Maine
and Arcadia National Park are located. Bar Harbor and Arcadia are 13 miles from the
house. When you visit, don’t miss the more northern part of Arcadia National Park, which
is farther up Route 1 from Ellsworth, and is known as The Schoodic Peninsula. The
“Schoodic” provides some of the best coastal Maine scenes there are to be seen.
One of Maine’s true assets is its people. You will find them friendly, casual, and helpful. Have a restful visit, and let us know how we can improve your stay at our Great Ledge House the next time you can come!
With warm regards,
Sarah and Michael Ciampa
