Property Description:

Nestled in a northern forest thick with ferns and wild berry bushes, this rustic house is hidden away on an isolated peninsula beside a majestic fjord, a perfect retreat. With its spectacular mountain and sea views, and glorious sunsets, it is a great spot to experience Maine at its best. Venture out to neighboring Northeast Harbor for penny candy and a paper, into Acadia National Park for a mountain trek and glorious panoramas, or dip into the invigorating waters of Somes Sound if you dare. Should fog close in, set a roaring fire in the home's showcase fireplace and settle in with a good book from its large library- perhaps even one called Frankie's Place, A Love Story, the best-selling memoir set in this very house on this very island - and you'll know for sure that you've come to the right place!

FIRST FLOOR: From the waterside deck, enter to the open Dining/Living Area, awash with light and views of Somes Sound through the home's many windows. The Living Room features a large granite fireplace made from stones found locally, and is the centerpiece of the room. Along the back wall and above in a lofted area is the expansive Library, housing many volumes. An adjacent Dining Area offers seating for up to 8. Find an efficient, galley-style Kitchen with modern conveniences. One finds the Master Bedroom and a Full Bath with tub and shower off the kitchen. The Master Bedroom offers a king bed (twins pushed together) and a large writing desk set facing the water. Two more Bedrooms can be found off the Living Room. Both are set with twin beds and writing areas, and share a Full Bath with tub and shower. (Please note that the mattresses for all the beds are made from high quality/high density foam set on solid planking).

OUTDOOR SPACES: Two sitting areas on the waterside deck compliment this rustic home, and are a natural extension of the property. Forested areas and granite ledge provide a lovely foreground to the waters of Somes Sound beyond!

EXTRAS: Kayak and canoe available. Note that launching boats immediately in front of the house can be a challenging due to the steep shorefront, particularly at low tide. It is recommended that boats be launched at nearby Sargent Cove or Suminsby Park.
