NOTE: Adjacent to the property is the village of Northeast Harbor's public water treatment center, which has negligible visual or noise impact on the property. Map locator below is accurate as marked, but Google inexplicably identifies this location as 220 Mines Hill Rd in Blue Hill. This house is assuredly located on Manchester Rd, Northeast Harbor.
About this area:
Northeast Harbor has the advantage of being quite close to Acadia National Park's Stanley Brook entrance, not to mention the appeal of the grand, historic summer cottage estates, some of which date to the turn of the century. Northeast Harbor offers high end shopping plus some dining opportunities and boasts an active library, community center, public tennis courts and golf course, and a premier marina.
