    About this property

    Beachfront Family Retreat Or Just Some Peace and Quiet

    The cottage is on a quiet private spot overlooking Penobscot Bay. Western views of Penobscot Bay for beautiful sunsets over the water. 900 feet of shore frontage, quiet setting with private deck. A lighthouse across the Bay continues to direct some large vessels to Bucksport. In the fog, you may hear the fog horn sound every 7 seconds. The beach is a great spot for walking, collecting beach glass, and driftwood. Our regulars like to build forts on the beach with the many shapes and sizes of driftwood that wash up. There are also a couple of lakes in the area if you would like to visit some fresh water. We are equal distance to Belfast, Bangor and Ellsworth. Short drive to many coastal Maine towns; 12 min to Blue Hill, 7 min to Castine, 45 min to Acadia National Park, and 60 min to Camden/Rockport. I do my major grocery shopping in Bucksport, a comfortable 10 mile country drive. One bedroom on the ground floor has a double bed, One upstairs bedroom has a double bed and the other 2 twins. Maine has a rich literary history - and if you are bringing your kids, grab a copy of some Robert McCloskey favorites; One Morning In Maine, Burt Dow Deep Water Man, Time of Wonder. We can give you directions to Condon's Garage so you can eat ice cream by the harbor and read these iconic books to your kids. Burt Dow's headstone is only a short drive from there, and the locals regularly adorn it with a painted buoy. We like to think Giggling Gull visits from time to time.

          quiet and very relaxing cottage

          We enjoyed the quiet cottage located at the end of the drive. Sitting on the deck that over looks the tide coming in or going out. You have all you need for a nice quiet weeks vacation their, Vanessa and her son Matthew are very nice thoughtful people and we got to meet two cute daughters of matt (granddaughters of Vanessa's) If anyone is looking for a nice relaxing place to go this is it

              Beautiful location.

              This house is in the most beautiful location, right on the water. It's well equipped, quite comfortable, attractive, and well kept. If you tire of watching the water, you can watch the flames in the cozy wood stove, which was well stocked with wood. The view is gorgeous. There is solitude here and an otherworldy feeling (in a good way!), but it's very close to small towns and neighboring houses (although you don't see them). There is lots to see and do in the area. Our host, Venessa, was welcoming and hospitable. We had a wonderful, peaceful time. We highly recommend this place. Thank you, Venessa, for sharing your home with us.
