Eagles Nest at Daniel Point is a large (5200 sq ft) and beautiful home built on a bluff overlooking the ocean. The home was the PNE prize home for 2000 and sits on 3/4 of an acre with its own private cove. It has a large number of windows which look out on the views, an 18 foot ceiling in the livingroom, and all the finishings in the house are first class. There are three decks all facing west to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. The main level has a large and well appointed kitchen. There are three ovens, 6 gas burners, two refridgerators and two in-island coolers for veg and fruits. The mediaroom has a highend system with surround sound for great movie watching. The library is well stocked with a wide variety of books for a good read. The master bedroom has a wonderful king bed and the other three bedrooms have equally great queen beds. The gamesroom (1200 sq. ft) has a pool table, foosball, air hockey and a ping pong table (and a beer fridge-sorry, you have to fill it). Outside the gamesroom is a large deck with a hot tub. This is a great place to relax at the end of the day and watch the sun go down.
Outside there is a childrens play area with a slide, swing, sand pit and toys. Below the house is a large patio for sun tanning. And below that is a private beach with its own deck. There are three kayaks located there for guests to take out on the ocean and enjoy. There are many places to paddle. One place we like is a group of islands a short distance offshore which are the home for many seals and sea lions.
The beach itself is not sandy. Proper footwear is needed to walk on the stones. The water, even in the summertime, is not very warm but I like to take a dip on hot days. For swimming I would recommded going to one of the nearby lakes. They are very warm and pleasant in the summer.
