Our Carriage House is located on a beautiful stretch of Maine's mid-coast area. Conveniently located between the two towns of Belfast and Camden, the house is set in a very private area, at the end of a mile-long paved, private cul-de-sac drive. Nestled into a wooded ridge at the top of Jackson Hill, the Carriage House is an ideal vacation home for a family or a couple looking for peaceful, upscale lodgings while exploring coastal Maine.
The house was built in the spring of 2004. It is the sister building of a larger home (not visible from the Carriage House) but both houses share the same driveway. The house features all new appliances. The master bedroom has a queen bed and adjoining bathroom while the second bedroom has two twins.
There are three outside decks. A small shaded balcony off the kitchen offers a lovely place to have enjoy morning coffee while viewing the beautiful wooded surroundings, mountains, and distant ocean. The front patio has a table and chairs and is good for enjoying the woodland scenery, relaxing or sunbathing. The back patio is the perfect place for outside grilling, sunning, or reading.
Joe and I live on the coast of Maine with our 3 young children. Joe is a local pediatrician and enjoys sailing and playing soccer during his time off. I am kept busy as a stay-at-home mom, triathlete, and travel guru.
We bought the house and the land that it was built on in 2004. We lived here for 2 and a half years while we planned and built the house that we currently live in, 700 feet up the hill. We think that the carriage house is a perfect spot to stay for anyone who is interested in seeing mid-coast Maine. We love the fact that the house completely private: nestled in the side of a hill, surrounded by beautiful woods, and the Camden Hills and Penobscot Bay in the distance. When we travel, we also appreciate clean, well appointed facilities. We have done our best to make the accommodations in the Carriage House those that we would hope to find when traveling.
Woodland tranquility is the best feature of the Carriage House, which is something that seems to be harder and harder to find. Sitting on one of the three decks enjoying a coffee, you might see turkeys wander by, or hear the cry of a loon from a nearby lake. We have even seen a moose in the yard! At the same time, it is within range of numerous fun activities like beach swimming and boating, windjammer cruises, good restaurants, Acadia National Park and many others. Come and see for yourself!
