If you are looking for nostalgia and the feel of a traditional Down East Maine summer home, then 'Arbor House' is perfect for you! We are located just a stone's throw away from a private beach access to Little River Cove on the beautiful Penobscot Bay. Enjoy walking the beach and searching for that special ocean treasure, or take one of our kayaks for a spin and listen to the loons. We also have a deep water mooring available if you chose to bring your own boat. Within walking distance to the Village of Bayside, a small historic settlement of gingerbread houses right out of a fairytale, where you can swim, fish off the pier, or simply relax in the park with your favorite book.
'Arbor House' is very conveniently located just off Route 1, between the larger towns of Belfast to the north, and the Camden/Rockport/Rockland areas to the south. A variety of fine restaurants, shops, golfing, sailing, hiking & sightseeing are within minutes of this property.
'Arbour House' has the look and feel of traditional Maine summer residence, with all of the conveniences & amenities you would expect in a seven year old home. It is extremely well equipped and very tastefully decorated in a nautical & lighthouse motif. It will comfortably sleep 7 adults and features two full bathrooms. The master suite has a queen bed and private bath on the first floor. The second bedroom ('Lighthouse Room') has a full size bed and a twin with small vanity table and two chairs, and the third bedroom ('Coastal Vineyard Room') has two twin beds and a large oversized rocker for reading. A full bathroom is conveniently loacated between the two bedrooms. We also offer a full sized futon in the first floor office ('Necessary Room') that comfortably sleeps two. The office features a rolltop desk & chair w/ printer for mobile business needs.
The first floor plan is very light, open and airy. There are ceiling fans in all rooms. Just open the living room plantation shutters and let the cool ocean breezes lull you away into relaxation. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook with from baking cakes & muffins to steaming your favorite lobster and seafood dishes.
The living room is designed for relaxation and has a satelite TV, DVD, satelite stereo and a wonderful gas fireplace for the perfect ending to the day. We have provided a variety of DVD's, CD's, and games for you to use when you simply want to stay in.
There are three areas for you to 'escape' to on the outside. The main deck is equipped with a gas BBQ, patio table & umbrella and additional folding chairs, which leads down to cobblestone patio complete with firepit (wood), tiki torches, accent lighting and the famous Adirondack chairs Maine is known for. It is surrounded by wonderful perennial gardens. If a quiet place for reading is more your style, we offer a covered front porch and two rocking chairs or a very intimate tete-a-tete double adirondack settee on a small cobblestone patio in the front by the arbor. The property is very private and bounded by woods on three sides.
If the convenience of shopping, dining, the enjoyment of nature, and close proximity to all that Maine has to offer on the mid coast, coupled with privacy and the need for pure relaxation, then 'Arbor House' is perfect for you.
Whether it be one of the many festivals or variety of arts that Maine has to offer, you will find something for everyone to enjoy during your stay. If small venue plays are your thing...we have it nearby. If you seek a venue for gaming, Hollywood Slots is a short ride to the north. If you desire local arts & crafts, music, or wine & beer tasting, we have some of the finest around...and perhaps one of the most beautiful National Parks you will ever see is a mere hour or so away...no visit to the mid coast of Maine is complete without experiencing this wonderful treasure!
