Peace and Quiet on a lovely private property on Penobscot

Bedrooms 4
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 6 nights


About the property

Quiet residential area of year round homes.

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.

It was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as described. It was clean, comfortable, and quite. There are plenty of fans at night to keep cool at night. I would recommend it to anyone that would like a nice quite place that has a beautiful view.

Beautiful house and setting

  • 5 of 5

A lovely two weeks. Perfectly appointed house - we wanted for nothing. A gorgeous yard and view of the bay. Lots of lawn toys for the grandchildren, comfy chairs for us, a fire pit for evening parties, and beautiful star filled sky. Only minor quibble is the grill on the porch tends to send smoke into the house and set off smoke alarms. Had to run a fan to use the grill. But overall, loking firward to coming back next year.

Owner's Response: From all reports you have been "dream guests", exceptionally neat and clean. I so appreciate your caring for my property and enjoying all the amenities. The smoking grill has been an issue and we have discovered that closing the slider and/or back bedroom windows does help. Both Gary and Sandy enjoyed interacting with your family and we all would love to have you back next year. Thank you for the very nice review. Jean Driscoll

So Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

One day I was looking out the window across the spacious lawn to the bay when a seal popped it's head out of the water to observe my boys who were exploring the tide pools below. What a gorgeous place!

The house itself is spacious and comfortable. Great for either a large group gathering or a family looking for some room to spread out. It is in a wonderful central location for taking day trips to Maine destinations such as Acadia while avoiding the crowds of tourists that we encountered in some of the coastal towns.

Wow is right!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place, with lots of privacy. Immaculately clean, beautiful house. Views from the shoreline were especially beautiful first thing in the morning. Pictures don't quite do it justice. We held our family reunion of about 14 people here one of our days and the screened-in porch was plenty large enough to accommodate. The two kids (pre-teen boys) had fun running around the large yard. Gary (caretaker) was really nice, too, and very responsive. On our evening "down" time, we played Clue or had a fire in the pit outside. Definitely a place we'd love to return to next time we're in the area. Wow.

Great location with quiet privacy. The house was perfect for a large family. Nothing missing, including games. Would plan to rent it again if we need a large accommodation.
