This large cottage sits on the crest of a hill overlooking a cove and Frenchman Bay. Meadows and woods surround the property. A spacious deck off the rear of the house provides a wonderful gathering area, perfect for an outdoor lunch or a glass of wine with cheese before dinner.
The living room has a library, games, reading chairs, wood-burning fireplace, and dining area. A washer and dryer, and a pleasant breakfast nook, also occupy the first floor.
Upstairs finds a master suite overlooking the bay; a second bedroom with a double bed; a bathroom with shower; and a roomy bunk room ideal for children, with two bunk beds.
Walk down the hill and you will reach the large cove, where a boat can be moored and kayaks kept on shore. The bay waters feature remarkable clarity, fascinating sea life, and nearby islands open for exploring.
Also within walking distance is a spring-fed pool (belonging to the town) with a beach and sunbathing platform. The pool and tennis courts (in the village) can be accessed by buying a short-term membership. For golfers, a scenic, nine-hole course, Bonnie Blinks (which does not require membership), is about 1.5 miles away.
Freshwater lakes with beaches, and adjacent Schoodic Mountain, whose summit yields views of the Acadian coast, lie a 25 minute drive away. The steep climb and the fresh water go well in succession!
An organic food movement has taken root in the area. You can have delivered daily fresh, organic produce and meats to your door, and roadside stands abound. For dining out, restaurants at Winter Harbor serve traditional Maine seafood dishes.
Coastal Maine offers a treasure of natural scenery and a perfect summer climate. Our large, summer 'cottage' sits on a gentle hill overlooking Frenchman Bay. Kayaking, boating, golf, tennis, and swimming can be had almost out the door. A spacious, sunny deck, long colorful sunsets, and brilliant night skies contribute to the experience of deep relaxation at this special place.
This home nestles on a protected cove, but the rugged Maine coast, with surf crashing on granite bluffs, can be found a short hop away at Schoodic Point or Acadia National Park. There, nature's power can be felt as well as seen.
Sorrento village has a working harbor and recreational facilities, It lies six miles by boat from Acadia National Park, but is removed from the park's tourist crowds. The commercial center of Ellesworth, the gateway to Acadia N.P,, is a convenient 15 miles, 25 min. drive away. A Shaw's supermarket, Home Depot, Walmart and LL Bean outlet make up some of the stores there.
Scenic swimming lakes, climbing mountains, and islands that dot Frenchman Bay keep Nature at the fore of this area. The bay waters boast terrific clarity, with abundant, visible marine life, from lobsters to dolphins.
