Seaside chalet style cabin on the Schoodic Peninsula located within 70 feet of the ocean. Hear the waves lap along the granite shore, feel the ocean breeze, see the Sally Islands off in the distance. At night you can see the flashing light of Petit Manan Lighthouse, Maine's second tallest light, built before the Civil War on a rock ledge two miles out to to sea.
The ocean view faces east across the water so the sunrises and moon rises are spectacular. See shore birds, marine life, and hear the loons call. Lobster boats work the area so you can watch them work from the front deck or along the shore.
The property is nicely wooded and you will have a private setting. Neighboring homes are shielded from view by a beautiful arbor of spruce, balsam, pine, etc. The shoreline is a combination of granite boulders and ledge rock. The water is deep, keeping a beautiful water view which is not affected by the twice daily Maine tide.
The cabin is a classic example of Maine craftsmanship. The interior is pine tongue and groove on the walls and the ceilings on both levels. The first floor living area has a wide pine plank floor. The second level structure has exposed wood beams and floor planking.
Level One includes a dining area and living area with a granite wood-burning fireplace. There is a comfortable Ethan Allen full size sleep sofa. Also on this level is a full bath and a generous sized Kitchen with updated newer appliances, and all the dishes and utensils you need. Level Two has a front master bedroom with full bed and a balcony that looks out over the ocean and out to the distant flashing lighthouse. The back bedroom has a pine bunk bed with a full mattress on bottom and a single on top. There is also another single bed in this room. Both these rooms have vaulted pine plank ceilings and pine plank walls.
Walk or bike a couple miles to Corea-by-the-Sea, one of Maine's most picturesque working harbors. There you will find the Lobster Co-op where you can buy fresh lobsters directly from the fishermen.
Down the road are the pretty communities of Prospect Harbor and Winter Harbor with many services, restaurants, and shopping. Winter Harbor is the gateway to the Beautiful Acadia National Park - Schoodic Peninsula Section, where you can enjoy strolling the spectacular craggy coast, hike Schoodic's hills, or bike beautiful trails. You can also take the mail boat from Winter Harbor to Bar Harbor, or take the easy drive from Schoodic Peninsula to Mount Desert Island.
The quintessential Schoodic Area is one peninsula 'Downeast' from the more crowded Bar Harbor area and Mount Desert Island.
This property has a rock ledge frontage with deep water so the rise and fall of the tide will not affect the beautiful water view. There is a distant view of Petit Manan Lighthouse, Maine's second tallest, which flashes beautifully across the ocean at night. The Schoodic Section of Acadia National Park is about 8 miles away with unique and beautiful oceanfront, biking and hiking. The Schoodic Peninsula also includes three of Maine's most picturesque working harbors: Winter Harbor, Prospect Harbor,and Corea-by-the-Sea. Corea-by-the-Sea also has a lobster fisherman's cooperative only a couple miles from the cabin that sells to the public fresh lobsters daily at wholesale prices. Bike/kayak rentals and restaurants are close by.
