The views from this home are breathtaking! The pictures really don't do it justice. It sits on a bluff overlooking the bay where you can see coastal cliffs to the south, ships sailing right past the deck, seals frolicking all day, and beautiful sunsets. The property is huge, very private, and quiet. There is a staircase down to a rocky beach where you can launch kayaks, swim, and collect shells and sea glass. The house is very nicely furnished and equipped, clean and comfortable.
The house is conveniently located to many beautiful coastal Maine areas of interest including Acadia National Park, Belfast, Bucksport, Camden Hills State Park and numerous harbor towns, while at the same time Stockton Springs and Lighthouse Road are extremely quiet and peaceful without hoards of tourists everywhere. I would recommend visiting Stonington, a very cool fishing harbor at the southern end of Deer Isle, where you can see hundreds of lobster boats coming in with their haul. It is a pleasant change from the hustle and bustle of Acadia and Bar Harbor in peak season!
Susie is an awesome host. She greeted us upon arrival and made sure we had everything we needed and recommended places to explore. Even though she lives on the property we never felt a lack of privacy. She is so kind and also quite a talented artist. If you care to chat be sure to go see her at work down in the garage creating her glass masterpieces-they are very beautiful. We even purchased one as a very special souvenir to remember our stay in this Waterfront Wonder!
