A beautiful home privately located in an exquisite part of South Addison called Cape Split, where renowned artist, John Marin, painted extensively. His studio is still there.
This exceptional home is situated on over 2 acres with deep water frontage on Pleasant Bay. It is perched high, overlooking the ocean and islands of downeast Maine. Enjoy vistas of Cadillac Mountain, outrageous sunsets, soaring birds, varied boats, porpoises and seals amongst towering evergreens. Completely breathtaking!
It is architecturally pleasing in and out, fine craftsmanship, loads of stained glass, central fireplace, new appliances, gorgeous bedrooms, cozy sun room with fir wainscoting and Brazilian cherry flooring. There is a sweet unique loft in the peak of the home. All linens are provided! There is also an ocean side deck with expansive views and outdoor seating.
This home is guaranteed to give a relaxing time!! Here are renters comments....renters from Texas said...' This is a repeat visit for us- returning after spending two weeks in this beautiful place last yr. Thank you for letting us share in your design, workmanship and perfect setting. The bald eagle put on a show and the deer peeked in a couple of times. Your home and location are spectacular and breath taking. Look forward to next yr.'
' Your home and location are wonderful. The views rival any I have seen. Go to Cutler and hike through the woods to Bold Coast Cliffs! Beaches close to home include Sandy River Beach just north of Jonesport on 187. The beach in Roque State Bluffs park is excellent. For a local cruise designed for whatever you want to do or see, call Downeast Coastal Cruises in Milbridge. Buzzy and Ester will create a day to remember. The sunsets on the deck w/ a glass of wine is a must.'
Renters say...' We were charmed by the home, mesmerized by the view but humbled by the night sky- w/ constellations so clear and bright and seemingly so close, we were speechless. We have never seen such a night!'
'The most wonderful gems proved to be the friendly and chatty guides, curators, sales people, postal workers, wait persons and your neighbors...who wave and smile every time we pass or see them to make us feel quite attached to this scenic place. Thanks for a stellar week.'
' We love the house and spectacular views. Melted all our stress away!! We saw a 'Big' black bear less than a mile from the house walking across the road. WOW!!!

My sister and I went camping a lot in beautiful nature settings as children, coastal Maine being one of those settings, and coming here to Cape Split was just like that--
Except it had the additional bonus of an unbelievably gorgeous and comfy-cozy house instead of a tent with difficult bathroom facilities! : )
This is the most wonderful property I have ever stayed at, and that's even above a house in Hawaii on a mountain with ocean views, close jungle all around with fruit- and flower-trees, lizards and tropical birds galore.
If you love nature, seclusion, and extremely gorgeous architecture, this is the place for you.
Highly recommended if you have young children who haven't yet become permanently bent over their devices, so that they get a chance to experience the larger world, or even as a break from that for older kids (though there is plenty of Wi Fi).
There are so many seemingly enchanted nooks and crannies inside and out, it's a wonder I never encountered a forest sprite--although I did see a huge shooting star from the back deck and made a wish--which came true!
Our hosts were on top of it all including leaving us a warm welcome. The views from hundreds of angles were breath taking. Our days were filled with spectacular sun rises, sunsets and stars, which we watched from our bed surrounded by large picture windows and skye lights. The kitchen was clean and well equipped. Loads of local information available. A nice wide range of book and games too. We left only one day to visit Acadia National Park. If you desire to unplug from technology and the world outside this is the place. It was simply perfect place to leave the human world behind and get lost in each other...a perfect honey moon. Thank you so very much Pam.
We just returned from our summer vacation in Maine, a portion of which was spent in Addison at this amazing Cape Split home. The house is exactly as advertised and is a true "Oceanfront Gem." The location is pretty out of the way and a decent drive off the main road so it's perfect if you want to truly get away and enjoy some peach and quiet but close enough to Acadia National Park and other Downeast points of interest to be a good home base to explore. It sits right above the ocean and boasts amazing views from both bedrooms as well as the large deck on the back of the house. We loved falling asleep each night to the sound of waves behind the house, looking at the stars through the skylights above the bed, and enjoying the spectacular sunsets each day. We also particularly enjoyed sitting around the fireplace in the morning and enjoying our coffee while planning our activities for the day. The house is nicely appointed with comfortable beds and furniture. Pamela and Peter were excellent owners and quick to respond to all emails and answered all questions we had before our stay. The house has very reliable wireless internet and we actually got great wireless signals on the property(AT&T and Verizon both had between 3 and 4 bars of signal). My parents were traveling with us on this vacation and are typically very particular about where they stay and they had nothing but positive things to say about the property as well. This property would be perfect for a couple looking for a romantic getaway or a family looking for an exciting vacation. My only suggestion would be to bring a sleep mask if you're visiting in the summer....the sun was up in the morning by 5am and those beautiful windows that provide such spectacular views also let in a lot of light so bring a mask if you want to sleep in. If you're on the fence with where to book your stay in Downeast Maine, just book this house! You won't be disappointed!!
My wife and I flew to Maine on our 26th anniversary in December 2014 and stayed at this house and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We enjoyed fires in the massive fireplace, enjoyed beautiful sunsets each night and walking around the loop at night when it was cold and the stars were out in full force. It is a bit of drive to get into town, but that is all the better if you want a place to visit and feel very secluded and private. I highly recommend renting this place. You will NOT be disappointed.
The Rural Romantic Getaway was everything the reviews claimed it would be. The home was immaculate, well-equipped, and quite romantic with lots of privacy. The views were amazing and at night, well - I'm not sure I've ever experienced such darkness. The night sky was amazing. The home is worth the drive, especially if you want to see the countryside! It was definitely a week to remember. Thanks so much, Patti and Phil
We fell in love with this home and its location immediately! We were looking to "get away from it all" and we couldn't have asked for a better place. The house itself is gorgeous and we made ourselves at home instantly. Everything we needed, from lobster pots to firewood, and more, was available. Each and every inch of the house is charming and welcoming. The grounds are beautiful and the view of the bay and far-off islands is tranquil. We watched the sunset every night. One night, an eagle sat perched near us on a pine tree branch, apparently enjoying the sunset as well. We listened to lapping water day in and day out. At night, the stars were amazing! Not only was the view of the sky from the back deck gorgeous, but the stargazing continued at bedtime through the skylights of the bedroom. Our own private planetarium! We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet that the home and landscape provided for us and we look VERY forward to returning.
