Property Description:

Random Ridge is a beautiful summer cottage located on a wooded slope on the quiet side of Northeast Harbor. Originally built as a rustic lodge in 1885, and expanded in 1910 into a summer "cottage," this inviting retreat offers a home base with easy access to Acadia National Park and the surrounding towns. The peaceful setting and well-appointed home make this a magical spot day and night. Random Ridge has many spaces to investigate and enjoy. In the main house, start your morning in the bright kitchen. Host a lobster dinner for 10 in the dining room. Settle by a cozy fire for an evening of board games in the living room. Out on the wrap around furnished porch, listen for lobster boats chugging out from the harbor in the morning, and count sailboats heading out in the afternoon. Take your pick from five bedrooms in the main house and two more in the back house.

FIRST FLOOR: Inviting Living Room with harbor views and wood burning fireplace leads out to the furnished covered porch overlooking the garden and natural landscape. Adjacent to the living room, with access to the kitchen, sits a lovely Dining Room with bay window and seating for ten.

The Lodge: From the covered porch, wander down the covered passageway to the Lodge. Built before the house, the Lodge is a world to itself. This nostalgic and unique feature of Random Ridge serves well for additional gathering space or as a guest cottage.

Two more bedrooms (one bigger, one smaller), with Queen bed and a converted drawing room with Twin bed. Bathroom with combined tub and shower.
