OCEANFRONT GEM THAT IS PRIVATE, ROMANTIC & SCENIC, WIRELESS INTERNET, 2 BR

Addison House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 4 -Internet access, TV & Fireplace

A beautiful home privately located in an exquisite part of South Addison called Cape Split, where renowned artist, John Marin, painted extensively. His studio is still there.

This exceptional home is situated on over 2 acres with deep water frontage on Pleasant Bay. It is perched high, overlooking the ocean and islands of downeast Maine. Enjoy vistas of Cadillac Mountain, outrageous sunsets, soaring birds, varied boats, porpoises and seals amongst towering evergreens. Completely breathtaking!

It is architecturally pleasing in and out, fine craftsmanship, loads of stained glass, central fireplace, new appliances, gorgeous bedrooms, cozy sun room with fir wainscoting and Brazilian cherry flooring. There is a sweet unique loft in the peak of the home. All linens are provided! There is also an ocean side deck with expansive views and outdoor seating.

This home is guaranteed to give a relaxing time!! Here are renters comments....renters from Texas said...' This is a repeat visit for us- returning after spending two weeks in this beautiful place last yr. Thank you for letting us share in your design, workmanship and perfect setting. The bald eagle put on a show and the deer peeked in a couple of times. Your home and location are spectacular and breath taking. Look forward to next yr.'

' Your home and location are wonderful. The views rival any I have seen. Go to Cutler and hike through the woods to Bold Coast Cliffs! Beaches close to home include Sandy River Beach just north of Jonesport on 187. The beach in Roque State Bluffs park is excellent. For a local cruise designed for whatever you want to do or see, call Downeast Coastal Cruises in Milbridge. Buzzy and Ester will create a day to remember. The sunsets on the deck w/ a glass of wine is a must.'

Renters say...' We were charmed by the home, mesmerized by the view but humbled by the night sky- w/ constellations so clear and bright and seemingly so close, we were speechless. We have never seen such a night!'

'The most wonderful gems proved to be the friendly and chatty guides, curators, sales people, postal workers, wait persons and your neighbors...who wave and smile every time we pass or see them to make us feel quite attached to this scenic place. Thanks for a stellar week.'

' We love the house and spectacular views. Melted all our stress away!! We saw a 'Big' black bear less than a mile from the house walking across the road. WOW!!!

The pictures make this house look magical, and the house is magical. Arriving at the house, seeing the house and the view of the ocean beyond, it really is breathtaking. It's such a pretty house, it's tough to leave. But we went kayaking nearby at whale cove, went to the sardine museum and model train museum in Jonesport, hiking at Great Wass Nature Preserve, visited friends near Machias, drove to Acadia (crowded, duh), lay on the deck at night watching shooting stars, watched bald eagles perch in the trees, went on a lobster boat tour, went swiming at the local bar beach, whale cove, and sandy river beach, and ate dinner at Tall Barney's in Jonesport. Fresh flowers on the table when we arrived. Practical stuff: One kid slept in the second bedroom, which is very nice, another kid slept on the fold-out futon in the second floor sunroom. If we had a third kid he could sleep in the 3rd floor eagles nest (a great place to read or work on your novel). Wonderful stained glass, wonderful views, wonderful carpentry and craftsmanship.

It's hard to do justice to this special property in a review. The house is spectacular--and so are the views. The location is extraordinary--peaceful and quiet; the house and gardens extremely well cared for. We hated to leave, not only at the end of our stay, but for groceries during the week! Others have noted that the house is well-stocked and clean, which it is; the owners have also created various places to sit outdoors and watch the view. In late July, the garden in front of the house was in full bloom (it, too, was gorgeous). We've stayed in a number of wonderful rentals in various places, but none better than this. In fact, we loved it so much we've already booked a stay in 2011! This house will not disappoint anyone seeking a refuge (though it does have wireless for those who cannot disconnect entirely).

Lifetime Friends Vacation

All we can say is WOW!!! We'd been talking of this adorable place since 2006 when we saw it highlighted in " Coastal Living". So finally went with our buddies of 44 years. And we were not disappointed -- it was just as perfect as the pictures! Tons of quiet & privacy too, but best of all, Gorgeous Views out every window!! In our MB we felt like we were on a ship's "bridge" looking over the ocean. We woke up to Bald Eagles soaring by, and lobster boats trolling the waters out our windows - and that was from our bed! This quaint cottage shines with the thought & care of its owners!
We also bought lobster off the boats-had 2 huge lobster feasts in "our" cottage.( Our hosts had all tools necessary for cooking them.)
We went into a little Jonesport restaurant several times for their
wonderful seafood & Maine hospitality -- even ordered blueberry pie & popovers ahead to take out! Talk about livin!! And don't miss Acadia N.PK. and puffin trip--both near by. Enjoy!

My husband and I have stayed at the Mullin's home three years in a row. If we think about going somewhere else for vacation, we know we will miss our Maine vacation spot. It is hard to say what we enjoy most, the cozy, beautiful home, the eagles, the quiet, the outdoors.....There is too much to mention!. Every mornig we walk with our coffee around the circle and later hike to the bottom of the property to sit by the water, or walk on the paths around the home or to Whale cove. There are not enough words to describe our visits, you should experience it for yourself.

Best vacation home ever

Our week on Cape Split was one of the best vacations we've had in a long time. So often, we've found our vacation spot great, but the house left something to be desired. Not so with Pamela and Peter's home. We really did feel at home - from the necessities in the cabinets and refrigerator to the games, books and travel info, it was so comfortable. The setting is gorgeous, with sunsets over Mt Desert Isle in the distance and the eagles and lobster boats close by, and so private that we only saw another person when we walked the circle on the Cape. The homeowners have cut paths in the acreage on the Cape, and my children enjoyed hiking out of the front door. The most wonderful thing, though, was the house itself. We saw immediately how it had been designed and crafted with so much thought of maximizing the natural features of the setting - the bedrooms face west, but there's light in the master bedroom from the east via skylights in the hallway. In fact, there's so much natural light that we only had to use electric lights at night. The master bedroom is designed to take advantage of the views, which it's full of: ocean during the day and stars at night. The other bedroom faced the ocean and the woods, which was very calming, and the "loft" was a bonus for escaping once in a while. The bath was a huge treat, with a great deep, Japanese-style soaking tub. Downstairs, the living room was great for reading and contemplating the fire, and the kitchen/dining room was roomy and well-stocked.

We were there in late August, and it was a refreshing change in temperature from our home in Virginia. I'd happily recommend this house to anyone who's looking for a relaxing and/or action-packed Maine experience!

P.S. - the pictures on the website are great, but there's no way they can do it justice.
