Northeast Harbor, Greenings Island
Ravenspoint is a classic Nantucket-style cedar shingle cottage with white trim and granite chimneys. It's set on nearly 10 acres with more than 1500 feet of ocean frontage, bold rocky shoreline to the north, and a private pebble beach for swimming and picnicking to the south. The front porch of Ravenspoint offers dramatic views up Somes Sound - the only natural fjord on the east coast of the U.S., as well as views to the west of Beech Mountain, Acadia Mountain, and the Claremont Hotel and views to the north of Cadillac Mountain and the Northeast Harbor Yacht Club. And with its western orientation, it takes full advantage of glorious sunsets over the mountains of Acadia National Park. The property also boasts a five-acre field, private granite dock with float, and one mooring. Originally built in 1930, visitors to Ravenspoint are sure to be mesmerized by its grandfathered location just 25' from the rocky shoreline. Modern conveniences are not overlooked, however. A recent renovation put amenities such as a flat-screen satellite TV, wine cooler, and cappuccino machine in place. Town dock pickup and drop off at the start and end of stay, a one-hour tour of the house and Island.
