I must emphasize the peace and quiet aspect of this property since noise carries easily over water and I ask that the neighbors be respected. This rustic house sits on a private lot just 1/2 mile from Rt One at the end of a dirt road. Decor is eclectic but comfortable - -nothing fancy. A short flight of steps provide access to the rocky shore. Three private bedrooms (one on main floor) and a 4th room upstairs connecting the two bedrooms. There are 2 baths (one with tub) plus 1/2 bath up. Kitchen is well applianced and a screened-in porch provides wonderful ever-changing views of Penobscot Bay.

Amazing Place to Stay on Coastal Maine!!!!
This was the perfect place to stay for our three generation family of 14!!! This beautiful, spacious cottage had everything we needed and then some! It is located on a point into the bay, with no neighbors, and the huge yard was perfect for the grandchildren to play in with the toys available on the incredible screened porch. Games and puzzles and fire pit were available for night time activities. We all enjoyed the waterfront and the canoe was used for fishing and watching the seals and dolphins. Nature at its best!! Can't wait to return!!!! Would give it a 10star rating if I could!!
Jane and Family, it sounds like you certainly enjoyed all coastal Maine has to offer! Thank you for your kind review and sharing some of your adventures. We really enjoy hearing about the experience and memories families have. We hope to have you back!
A perfect vacation.
This home is welcoming and comfortable. The quiet restores balance and the beauty inspires energy. For us it is the perfect vacation spot--privacy AND access to so many fun things to do.
Beautiful! So glad you’ve joined us again Jane!
Amazingly clean and well equipped with cooking/laundry/cleaning/play supplies.
We chose this property based on proximity to our relative's home in Stockton Springs for a week of family reunion activities. We couldn't have been more pleased! We are a three generation group of 6 adults and 3 kids ages 1, 4 and 9. The location was so beautiful with views of the Penobscott and access to the tidal rock beach. The kids had daily adventures with snails and seaweed and tide pools and the toddler discovered the joys of dropping rocks into water to elicit splashes and giggles. There was lots of mostly boisterous hammock swinging, evening fires, wiffle ball and beanbag games plus quiet contemplation and book reading in the Adirondack chairs. The kitchen is remarkably well equipped for family cooking, lobster cooking and even baking lessons with our cousin the pastry chef. Caretaker Gary was prompt and helpful on arrival and departure and quickly answered our only question about recycling midweek. We loved the house and the whole week and would highly recommend it to all!
Thank you for the review Gail! These are many of the ways we’ve enjoyed the house and coast over the years as well. Glad the little ones enjoyed it as well. Thanks for staying!
We spent four weeks here and had a wonderfully relaxed time. The house is very comfortable, well furnished, and the kitchen well equipped. But the highlight for us was the screened in porch. Never too hot or too cold, no bugs, and a great view of the water.
Thanks for the review Jeff! Couldn’t agree more about the porch and views! We appreciate you taking such care during your stay and we would love for you to stay with us again.
1st time to Maine and my whole family loved our stay. The house was perfect with plenty of room.
Plenty of space inside and out. We took advantage of the canoe a few times. Enjoyed Smores around the fire and played frisbee with the whole gang.
We loved our stay.
So glad you enjoyed Maine and the property. Thanks you for the review!
It was wonderful!
We had a wonderful 9 days at this home on the beautiful coast of Maine. The house is large with plenty of different areas to spend time inside, comfortable screened in porch with a view of the bay and a large waterfront lawn. There is also a small deck by the stairs to access the water to sit in complete privacy and enjoy the ocean breeze. It's meticulously clean and has everything you'd need in the large kitchen. Lots of games, puzzles, cards, etc. It's a great place to stay and relax at and also about a 45 minute ride to Bar Harbor and Cadillac Mountain. Nearby harbor towns, shops and other attractions as well. We went fishing off the ocean rocks every morning and evening! What a great week of quiet and relaxation....We would recommend this place to anyone!
