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!
We respectfully ask that guests be a minimum of ten years old. We are 'small dog' (non-allergenic) pet friendly...a small deposit will be required. Let's discuss your needs...
All linens and towels are provided.
WOW! Mike and Nancy were perfect hosts and have a beautiful home we had the pleasure of renting and will again very soon. The location in Northport allows you the pleasure of doing day trips but yet get home early enough to throw something good on the grill. The house is move in and enjoy your vacation. The kitchen is fully and nicely furnished. We had our whole family there for a week, the two kayaks were wonderful and the views from the beach were exceptional. Our kids fell in love with the area.
Again, Thank you Mike and Nancy for an exceptional memory making vacation.

Our family enjoyed staying at the the arbor house last summer. It is a well taken care of newer property and the host was most accomodating to our needs. It is setback off the main road and is in a very quiet area. Restaurants,nice beaches, and hiking are all nearby. We used the provided kayaks that are a short walk from the property.
My wife and I wanted to escape for the holidays and so at the last moment we made plans to get away to the Arbor House. The home itself is beautifully decorated and maintained with EVERYTHING you need to make your stay perfect. The location is ideal for shopping in Camden, exploring your way up to Bar Harbor or just getting to know Northport which Downeast Magazine recently called one of Maine's Coolest small towns. We had a wonderful time staying here and will be going back again! Don't wait and book your reservation NOW!
My husband and I recently visited Maine for our 10 year anniversary and were fortunate to stay at the Arbor house. This house was such a sweet romantic spot. The owners were so thoughtful; they had an anniversary cake waiting for us upon our arrival since we had told them this was a trip for our 10 year Anniversary. The house was very clean and well cared for. The owners also provided so many basics like coffee, paper towels, trash bags, toilet paper, etc... It was nice to not have to run out to the store right away. We especially loved the outdoor fire pit. Many nights we would come back to the house and drink wine by the fire. It was so nice and relaxing! We really enjoyed the location of the Arbor House as well. The town of Belfast is so cute. Young’s Lobster pound is a must! Camden and Rockport are pretty towns that are close by. The restaurant Shepard’s Pie in Rockport is phenomenal. Such a great casual hip restaurant. The Halibut was the best meal I had in Maine. We also, were able to go to Bar Harbor in Acadia. It was a pretty drive from Belfast. We hope to return to Maine soon and when we do we will definitely plan to stay at the Arbor House.
I visited the Arbor House with two of my girlfriends over Memorial Day weekend and had a fabulous time! This house is perfectly situated to enjoy all the towns surrounding. Just a short drive into Belfast for shopping, dining, and grabbing a morning cup of coffee. You can easily drive to Arcadia national park for a day of hiking, and then spend another day driving south to all the wineries (I highly recommend the cellar door winery). The Arbor House had all the amenities we needed, but to be honest we didn't spend too much time at home. We especially liked the fire pit on the back patio! The house comfortably slept us three but we could have easily added another three people.
If you plan to be out and about on your visit to Maine, I would highly recommend the Arbor House for your stay!
My husband and I spent a week at lovely Arbor house in August. Our hosts warmly welcomed us, showed us around and made sure we had everything we needed. Arbor House is immaculately clean, cozily decorated, and has everything to ensure a wonderful stay. We enjoyed the kayaks, the gas fireplace and the outdoor patio and porches. Just a short walk to the ocean and a quick car trip to Belfast. We had a wonderful time and we HIGHLY recommend it to couples and families looking for a memorable trip to Maine's mid-coast.
