'PERFECTLY LOVELY' TWO BEDROOM GUEST COTTAGE 1/2 MI TO VILLAGE, BEACH, MOUNTAINS

Blue Hill Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful, architecturally-designed, custom-built cottage in private setting

'Peter's Hill Guest Cottage is a perfectly lovely cottage. Our family of four (including two teenagers) stayed here for five nights in July/August 2013. We cannot praise the experience highly enough!'

'It is simply, but beautifully appointed, very clean, and supremely comfortable. We really lacked for nothing!'

'The owners live onsite and are perfectly charming, available without being intrusive, and with a knack for the little touches that make a difference.'

'We loved sleeping with the windows open every night, to enjoy the cool night air and the peaceful, wooded surroundings.'

'Blue Hill is a quintessential Maine town, right by the water with local potters, good food, community theater, etc., but without the crowds of Bar Harbor. We hated to leave! — guest Sharon M.

Peter's Hill Guest Cottage is a two bedroom guest cottage within 1/2 mile walking distance to the quintessential Maine coastal village of Blue Hill! It is also less than 1/2 mile to Peter's Cove, a tidal swimming cove, and a three-minute drive to the hiking trails of Blue Hill Mountain.

The Cottage is set off from the main house, in a private setting on top of Peter's Hill above Blue Hill Harbor. It is handicapped- accessible (ask owner for details), has Direct TV, and is completely wireless. Plus, we are happy to share a sampling of our fresh vegetables from the garden when available!

For the past twenty years we have lived, worked, and raised our family on the Blue Hill Peninsula. This is our home and we love it here! We now offer our guest cottage for weekly vacation rentals. The cottage is set off from our main house, on the top of Peter's Hill above Blue Hill Harbor, within walking distance to Blue Hill village. We feel truly lucky to be living here, and we look forward to sharing this special place with you!

PERFECTLY LOVELY COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four (including two teenagers) stayed in the Peter's Hill Guest Cottage for 5 nights in July/August, and cannot praise the experience highly enough. It is simply, but beautifully appointed, very clean, and supremely comfortable. We really lacked for nothing. The owners live onsite and are perfectly charming, available without being intrusive, and with a knack for the little touches that make a difference. We loved sleeping with the windows open every night, to enjoy the cool night air and the peaceful, wooded surroundings. Blue Hill is a quintessential Maine town, right by the water with local potters, good food, community theater, etc., but without the crowds of Bar Harbor. We spent much of our time in Acadia and other parts of Mt. Desert Island, which are easily accessible from the cottage. We hated to leave.

Blue Hill is at the center of the Blue Hill Peninsula with the villages of Surry, Sedgwick, Brooklin, Brooksville and Penobscot minutes away. Buck's Harbor Marine in Brooksville offers sailboat and power boat rentals. Brooklin is the home of the Wooden Boat School. The famous Blue Hill Reversing Falls is just a few miles from the Village center and is a favorite spot for kayakers, offering standing 'tidal' waves for those who wish

to hone their white water skills. If you're sailing and looking for a land base, or meeting up with sailing friends, the Blue HIll (family-oriented) Kollegewidgwok Yatch Club is about a 1 1/2 miles down the road from Peter's Hill Guest Cottage, and offers guest moorings.

Deer Isle is 20 minutes away and Stonington is about 40 minutes.

Bar Harbor and all the wonders of Acadia National Park are 45 minutes away.

The renowned Chamber Music School and Festival at historic Kneisel Hall in Blue Hill offers a summer concert series, and The New Surry Theater presents top rate community productions at our Blue Hill Town Hall. There are dozens of art galleries and artist's studios to visit throughout the Blue Hill Peninsula.

There are way too many things to do and see than we can list here! We do know that Blue Hill and its surrounding communities will engage and entertain you, fill you days, and keep you as busy as you wish. And for those who prefer to simply relax, the Blue Hill Library has a great selection of books to enjoy while just kicking back.
