About Andrew Pierce
The property and the surrounding area are very dear to me and my family. In 1994 we donated thousands of acres to the State of Maine for a Maine State Land Reserve which is now enjoyed and respected by enthusiastic visitors. We work hard to keep our remaining private peninsula pristine and in complete respect to the natural beauty of the area. Andrew grew up in the Bangor and Downeast area and has a strong connection to the Acadia region.
Andrew Pierce purchased this Cottage in 1933

Our family vacation at Spring River Lake has set a high bar for every vacation that will follow. The remote and simple cabin alongside an idyllic Maine background was just perfect. Our intentions were to head into Acadia NP and Bar Harbor 2-3 days but found ourselves longing for the more peaceful yet still beautiful local trails near the cabin and finishing off the day lakeside while exploring the lake itself and all its beauty. Andrew and his family are more than welcoming along with the “repeat vacationers” in the other cabins who became fast friends. Without a TV in the cabin, no cell service, and very little WiFi signal, it was EXACTLY what our family needed to “get away”. Our kids (ages 8,10 and 11) along with our dog were beyond happy, spending our days exploring the lake, catching frogs, kayaking, paddle boarding, and hiking. It really was a dream vacation. Thank you Andrew for sharing your piece of heaven with us!
This property is absolutely amazing! Beautiful setting on the shore of Spring River Lake. The house faces to the west, so you get some wonderful sunsets over the lake and hills in the background. Everything was exactly as advertised. Many guests who signed the guest log book returned to this cabin year after year after year! It was the most relaxing vacation our family has ever had.
Great place and very quiet. Close to Acadia and other state parks. Great amenities it almost feels like an outdoor recreation resort than just a cabin.
Wonderful peaceful retreat
My wife and I vacationed here for the first time in early October. Warmer than normal temperatures allowed us to enjoy the beauty of the beach and lake and peacefulness of the wooded property. Andrew was great providing information beforehand and Bob, the caretaker, was great while we were there. We're already planning our return for next year.
Beautiful, relaxing getaway!
Spring River Lake and this cabin are absolutely wonderful. From the clear waters to the private setting- it had everything we were looking for. We loved using the kayaks to explore the lake and hearing the call of the loons each day. Having the private beach cove was perfect- we enjoyed sitting in the chairs at the water's edge and watching the beautiful sunsets!
Our cabin was clean and well stocked with everything we needed to make meals. The bed in the master was quite comfortable! Acadia and the Schoodic peninsula were very close drives and we enjoyed being able to visit them, even though the setting we had at the cabin was our favorite.
Andrew was an amazing host who joyfully gave us great advice before and during our trip. His communication was always quick and thorough! He even did his best to make sure we could have a bit of wifi connection for work emails. Thanks so much!
What a Great Vacation can't wait for next year.
The cabins were perfect! Quiet, private and well kept. Plenty of things to do in and around the lake. The water is crystal clear and the fishing, kayaking and canoeing kept the kids entertained all week. If you want a place to unwind away from it all and relax, This is paradise! What a great experience!
Ideal spot to relax while enjoying Maine's seacoast, Acadia and surrounding wilderness. One-of-a-kind beach! Few if any completely private fresh water beaches exist like this in New England, especially with such easy access to Acadia National Park and other immediate natural adventures.
Other Activities: All motorless water sports. HIKING. KAYAKING, boat cruises or tours from Bar harbor (i.e. Diver Eds)
