Blue Hill House Rental Photos and Description
9 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, 1 outdoor shower, sleeps 17,
Classic Maine cottage on Morgan's Bay with an unimpeded view down the length of Blue Hill Bay. This private family home is the ultimate destination for families big and small. Our home is on a private family compound that has been in the same family for over 100 years. The views are extraordinary, the house is relaxed and classic, with a fabulous working kitchen. All the bedrooms have fine linens and the bathrooms have thick Turkish towels. Although Leese House has old antique bathrooms with claw foot tubs, that we adore, there is a lovely outdoor rain shower on the back porch! We love the old charm, and hope you will too!
Our summer home is perfect for families who want to have the story book Maine experience. Hiking up Blue Hill Mountain for a leisurely picnic, spending the day looking for sand dollars and star fish on one of the many islands. Canoeing to see the hundreds of seals that live in our rocky waters, or just sitting in one of our Adirondack chairs listening to the kids play on the rocks and watching the occasional sailboat drift by - all daily events that make our summers unforgettable. Ten minutes from the house is the town of Blue Hill. We have fabulous restaurants, great antiquing, as well as a few well known galleries. For food shopping the local food coop is my personal favorite. If you appreciate organic local foods, Blue Hill has more to offer than most of suburban Connecticut! We have local bakeries, a wine and cigar shop, farmers markets, and last but not least fresh lobster!!
When we feel like beaching it, we simply walk with our basket about a half a mile down the road to a little cove called Curtis Cove. At low tide the water is shallow and the sand is soft, making it a perfect playground for all ages. East Blue Hill itself is a charming village. On Saturdays most of the town locals and devoted summer folk clamber into town and gather outside the Post Office for fresh baked muffins, coffee and local gossip. This is a unique post office, not only because it feels like the smallest town in Maine, but because it might also be the only one of its kind.
The local yacht club, the Kollegewigiwok Yacht club, has a junior sailing program open to the public. It is important to secure a spot for your children asap. You can easily contact them online.
