Perfect winter getaway!

5 on January 21, 2014

As long as the dirt road is plowed, so you can get to this sublime location, Three Pines is a lovely, delightful spot for a quiet getaway. Karen is a gracious and well-informed hostess. Her hens lay good eggs that Karen will cook to order, with cheese, kale, or other goodies. Wifi available on request from this green green property. Our room was warm and well appointed. Solar heated water was wonderfully hot for our showers. Best nights' sleep I have had in a while. Check out the sheep and llamas on the way in or out. And the waterfront view is just perfect, from either room.


What an Outstanding Stay!

To say that Karen and the Three Pines setting were outstanding is an understatement! We had only one night to stay here, but even before we arrived, and in follow-up contact since we left, our experience has been exceptionally great. Karen is a very gracious, welcoming host, readily sharing her knowledge of the area, patiently answering our questions about her eco-friendly B&B design, taking us to visit and learn about her sheep and the "guard" llama, pointing out and inviting us to enjoy hikes on and near the property, and spoiling our taste buds with a unique and very healthy breakfast. We had a very comfy upstairs room from which we enjoyed leisure reading and a grand view of the serene bay ... ah, what a peaceful night of rest, serenaded to sleep by the crickets and gently awakened by a nearby rooster. We don't have our own pets right now, so it was a treat to meet and pet her dog and kitties ... all rescued by the nearby pet shelter where Karen volunteers. This will remain an outstanding memory, and a place we would love to re-visit.


Enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra day!

A quiet, tranquil place from which to explore Acadida National Park and the surrounding coast. Owner Karen is warm, welcoming and very helpful. She served absolutely scrumscious breakfasts each morning. Our room had an incredible view over the bay and was clean and comfortable. A great place! We highly recommend Three Pines Bed and Breakfast!


What Maine is all about

If looking for peace, seclusion, homey atmosphere, and an unbeatable view, you can't go wrong. Add one of the most attentive innkeepers we've ever encountered and you've got a AAA, 5-star, or any other superlative rating you want, B & B. Animal lovers will be right at home. The 100% solar is a good glimpse of how things could be.

Hidden Treasure Getaway

4.0 on September 08, 2010

This B&B is located in a secluded area overlooking the Bay and has an incredible scenic view. The property is beautiful and the owners go as far as giving you a tour of the farm and meeting their animals. The breakfasts are incredible and the portions will keep you going until dinner time.


Loved Three Pines

5 on August 22, 2010

We spent three days at Three Pines. Everything from the room to the outside property was awesome. Karen Curtis the Inn Keeper was wonderful. She was always asking if we needed anything and her breakfast every morning was great. The rooms were very clean and the property was well kept. Waking up every morning over looking the water was very peaceful. I would recommend Three Pines to everyone.


Three Pines B&B - Wonderful Experience

5 on August 21, 2010

The Three Pines B&B is a wonderful, peaceful, serene and beautiful place to stay while visiting Acadia National Park in Maine. Hancock is very rural. The sunrises and moonrises over the bay - from my bedroom window - were amazing. Away from all the crowds, Three Pines is a dream place. My room was very nice. The drive in to the property tells you you're in a unique place - passing the sheep and the llama. Karen and Ed are wonderful hosts. Their farm and philosophy add to the enjoyment of being there. Karen's breakfast's are great. I stayed there 3 nites this past July. If I ever go back to Acadia, I'm booking there early. I HIGHLY recommend Three Pines B&B if you want to stay in a place off the beaten track, away from crowds and want to experience the true beauty of the region. I felt I was living there, unlike when one is staying in a motel. Karen's advice to visit Schoodic Peninsula was so helpful. I loved that place - away from the crowds of Mt. Desert Island. I enjoyed using their Kayak to go out on the water. Thanks again Karen and Ed. Bob


An Outstanding Visit

5 on July 31, 2010

This is a must stay for anyone who loves beauty, nature and excellent food. What a pleasant surprise to drive down the long driveway past the animals, garden and orchard to arrive at this lovely B&B with such a gorgeous view of Frenchman's Bay. Karen paused from busily picking blueberries to welcome us warmly. Breakfasts were delicious with blueberries a highlight and I strongly recommend the homemade yogart. A lovely walk through the woods to Gull Pottery helped us walk off those extra calories. I could happily spend a week there with all the many sights and activities in the area filling my days and the peaceful friendly atmosphere provided by the Curtises at night. You will be glad you chose this spot.


Sweetest Secret Treat

5 on July 21, 2010

It was the sweetest place - clean, nice couple running things, really private - just water, animals and views for miles. Really relaxing especially with the homemade muffins or pancakes (ummm great thoughts). Can't wait to return well worth the trip..
