Property description

Enjoy a private week of romance and relaxation. The secluded home is in a park-like setting, situated on a knoll some 75 feet from a dramatic granite cliff with steps down to the private cobble beach below. The home may be unassuming in its exterior appearance. However, guests have been taken with the exceptional post and beam construction. Massive red oak beams frame the entire house. Wide plank pine flooring, traditional colonial trim, antique furniture, and an expansive loft with a palladium window provide guests with the kind of warm and comfortable surroundings that so befit a coastal Maine vacation. Large windows allow in sunshine and the natural beauty of the outdoors. Views of Frenchman Bay are apparent from almost every room. The romantic first floor bedroom has been furnished with 1830's country furniture, including a classic Pennsylvania rope bed. In 2012 the house was renovated to include new bathroom, entrance way, windows and doors, microwave and stove.

Nature Abounds!: If you are interested in nature, the property has much to offer. Several acres of beautiful woods provide a home for red fox, hare, red squirrel, pine martin, and deer, who all come to visit. Bald eagles soar over Frenchman Bay, and rocks exposed at low tide are frequented by harbor seals. Other visitors have included peregrine falcon, osprey, loon, eider, nuthatch, chickadee, pileated, and other woodpeckers. And in the spring and fall, flocks of migrating warblers may drop in. Nesting birds include blue-headed vireo; black-throated green, Nashville, magnolia and blackburnian warblers as well as woodpeckers and other species. Those taking the time to occasionally look out over Frenchman Bay may be treated to a remarkable sight. While infrequent in the western portion of the bay, harbor porpoise do make an occasional appearance.

Value!: We believe that we are offering the best combination of location, amenities, and price. This can be attested to by the fact that for some years, 80% of our guests have been returning couples. Honeymooners return for their anniversary, and anniversary couples have returned for yet another anniversary.

The reason that our pricing compares so favorably is that we choose to only rent to couples. The second floor bed and bath are generally not available to guests. With prior approval, an additional guest may be accommodated.


Reservations!: If you wish to make a reservation, the rental fee must be paid in full and a signed Weekly Lodging Agreement must be submitted at the same time. In addition, a security deposit of $250.00 must be received no later than 30 days prior to occupancy. It will be returned by regular mail within one week after satisfactory inspection of the properly. Should you change your plans, we provide a a total refund minus a $10.00 handling fee if we can find someone to take your place. However, this is not always possible, so trip insurance may be a good idea.

Brochure, Weekly Lodging Agreement, and copies of comments from our guest book available upon request.
