    About this property

    Jaw-dropping Mountain & Ocean View Post & Beam Log Getaway Camden Hills & Bay

    If you are looking for absolutely stunning views and a unique setting enjoyed in complete privacy five to eight minutes drive from two quaint harbor towns, then this vacation getaway is for you. Perched high on a mountainside, this house is of Log/Post and Beam construction with open floor plan, large wrap-around porch, lofts, cathedral ceiling, and with windows and skylights on all sides to let in the truly magnificent, commanding vistas. The house sleeps up to eight people in two open loft bedrooms and a cozy, visually private guestroom/library on two Queen sized beds, one Queen sofa bed and one full-sized futon pullout sofa, all very comfortable. There is a whirlpool tub and a stand-up shower, plus a half bath with sunken vessel sink. A country kitchen including a classic cast iron/enameled cook stove, gas range, and slate counter tops with silvan views from the sink. Elegant decor throughout. This house is intimate and romantic, while nature on all sides brings the outside in. Our View and our Unique Setting:: Forests below you and blueberry fields above, you look down over the lush treetops or pick your own blueberries in season above the house. All neighbors are acres away and almost completely invisible. You will have to crick your neck to see the rooftop of one of them behind you from the wide porch, and then you will only see a part of a roof. You may see bald eagles and hawks soar below you! The peace and quiet and privacy here will amaze you, and there is virtually no traffic near us as we are situated at the turnaround of a small paved road high on the slope, and at the end of a long, steep private drive. A discretely used, only occasionally occupied second building on the property is tucked away out of sight, you won't even know that it is there. On the surrounding mountains to the Ocean, on all sides you will see nothing but forests and meadows dotted by a few fine houses in the distance with their cheerful lights at night. You see dozens of the islands on the Ocean, with Cadillac Mountain in the distance on Mt. Desert Island in Acadia National Park 43 miles away, half that as the crow flies. Sea, Sky, Mountains, the Area:: The sunrise—if you are up for it—will sparkle on the water and sunsets will turn it a deep pink and the surrounding coastal mountains rose or gold. The area provides infinite possibility for the Nature lover, sailor, historian, art aficionado, birdwatcher or stargazer. For those who long for the water there are day sails, bareboat charters (better be an experienced skipper), lighthouse trips, lobster fishing cruises and eco-tours, lobster-bakes on islands, ferries, whale-watching, kayak and rafting trips, and three to six day nautical adventures on the classic tall ships and wooden schooners known locally and historically as Windjammers. For landlubbers there are hiking trails, starting right outside your door, all over Camden Hills State Park and beyond, as well as on breathtakingly beautiful trails known only to locals, which we will share with you when you come. If you are a bird lover, you will have an overwhelming chorus of birdsong right up at the house. The night sky is amazing. Dining, Art, Life-style:: There is world-class cuisine and all manner of dining experiences, from waterfront fish-shacks to French to be had in the area, as well as the Farnsworth Art Museum, home of the Wyeth collection, and historic old harbors and quaint, busy waterfronts everywhere, filled with fishing vessels, luxury yachts from all over the world, and classic wooden sailboats. The house is equipped with wireless access and cable. Outdoor equipment includes Adirondack chairs and barbecue grill; well-behaved pets allowed upon approval. Children always welcome, although the house is not specifically "childproofed"; also some care must be taken with the spiral staircase as well as the antiques, art and cultural objects, as many are fragile. Please take care of wicker furniture as well thanks. Free Wifi Air Conditioner (large window unit. Only needed occasionally in Maine but recent years especially summer 2018 changed things; normally (and famously!) the summer temps are mid-to upper 70’s to low 80’s....and comparatively dry air. There were some hot muggy days this year...so that option will be available to our summer and early fall guests!)

      Hilltop house with a view

      Melody and Michael were responsive from my initial inquiry to the check out procedure. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome (flowers, staples like eggs, yummy multigrain bread, and jam). It is very important for potential guests to clearly understand the layout of the house and the open floor plan throughout the house, including bathrooms.

      5/5 Excellent

        Weekend Home Away from Home

        We were in the area for a family wedding and felt as though we were staying at the home of old friends. Melody and Michael are thoughtful and welcoming hosts. All communication prior to and during our stay was helpful and timely. We were delighted by the beautiful bouquet of flowers and selection of fresh fruits, local bread, coffee & tea that welcomed us upon our arrival. Such a kind-hearted detail! The house is cozy and feels like a home away from home with everything you could possibly need made available. The porch is a wonderful extension of the living space and we enjoyed starting the day with the birds while watching the sun rise. The view is simply spectacular- so high up we were looking down on the tree tops! We were even lucky to catch a few trees turning from green to red over the course of the weekend. We were also so pleased that the four legged members of our family were welcomed as well! Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!

            Wonderful Decor, Comfy, Private, and with Spectacular Views!

            My husband and I had 4 wonderful days at Melody and Michael's get-away cabin in Rockport. We wanted to be close to the coastal towns and all there is to do, yet a little removed and with more privacy and that is exactly what this experience delivered. The cabin was spacious and comfortable for the 2 of us (might be a bit small for 8 as billed) and had everything we needed. The views from the deck are the icing on the cake and we took advantage of sitting and enjoying the views in the mornings with coffee and in the evenings with cocktails. The decor on the porch was also lovely and homey with old Adirondack chairs, potted geraniums, bird feeders and lush greenery all around. What we truly appreciated was the attention to detail and quality of provisions that the owners had clearly taken care to provide us with. From providing all we would need for breakfast in the morning, including fresh Maine berries, Maine bread and best quality teas and biscuits, to the lovely soaps, fluffy towels, cotton sheets and comfy pillows, plus fully stocked kitchen, there was nothing we wanted for. Cant thank Melody and Michael enough, we will definitely be back!

              Beautifully situated log home with gorgeous views.

              I thoroughly enjoyed my 12 days in this peaceful location that was still so accessible to the activities of Camden and Rockland. The house is so embracing and comfortable, and the well-equipped kitchen allowed me to turn out everything from seared sea scallops to blueberry muffins for family and friends. Spent much of my time on the deck, whether with a cup of tea in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening, soaking up the views. We will definitely return!
