Digby house description
This grand cliffside estate is perched high above surging Fundy and Saint Mary's Bays on Petite Passage in East Ferry. Escape to a private gated 100 acre peninsula on the ocean's edge. Seals, osprey, bald eagles, and dolphins will greet you each day. Relax and entertain from a gourmet kitchen with Jenn-aire range, eat-at bar, open concept dining and living rooms featuring a massive fieldstone fireplace and a soaring window wall framing panoramic views of Petit Passage, Long Island, and St. Mary's Bay. Lounge on the deck or retreat to the shaded covered porch overlooking the surf below. Refresh yourselves in stone tiled baths with full laundry. Sleeps 12, with plenty of room for family and friends. Sandy beaches for beachcombing and a fresh water lake with picnic areas are just a short drive. Catch fresh fish for dinner, gather mussels at low tide, or buy lobster and seafood from a local lobsterman. Call Chris at 1-207-653-3163 and leave a message and number for callback.

Review from Jill in ME: Dear Chris,
Just got back from a week at the house, I'm all ready for work to begin. Drifting off to sleep to the sound of the waves after a day of exploring along the rocks, visiting with the seals, whale watching, or just watching the sun set and the moon rise was just perfect! The memories will keep me until my next vacation. Reserve the third week in July for me for next year.
Review from Dee Sordillo in MA: I've re-read my journal - and my memory and my recorded word match. Both my husband and I were speechless on first seeing the location. We arrived in the dead of night and found the rooms warm and very welcoming, immaculate and every comfort item covered. But - the best awaited til morning. The spectacular view takes your breath away Every morning the same vantage point gives a totally different view and feel. My pictures cannot express the beauty. Enjoy - Enjoy - Enjoy Dee Sordillo
If you are a seafood lover, especially haddock - you'll think you are in heaven.

About the owner: There's nothing quite as satisfying as sharing things you love with those you love. Great places, great food, great times, with great people. That's what Seal Point is all about! Oh, about me...You can learn more about me at christoy.net. Or you can friend me on Facebook. Just mentioned Seal Point House. https://www.facebook.com/christoy.net
Why the Owner Chose Digby:
Location location location! Because of where it is...At the end of the mainland. The house was specifically designed to maximize the location. When you sit in the great room, in the dining room, on the deck, or even as you open your eyes in the morning, you'll see and hear the ocean...every day. At night you'll see the stars, and if the moon is out you'll see it's reflection on the water...That is, when you look away from the crackling fire in the massive fireplace defined by its solid hand hewn timber mantle salvaged from an historic barn.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
A gated entry to the private peninsula. Your own seal colony just steps away, private forest paths along the rocky seaside cliffs, a gourmet kitchen, huge dining area that comfortably seats everyone plus a lucky guest or two, an even larger deck, and enough space so everyone can be together or alone as they choose.
