Somesville house description

Original Somes House & Barn built Circa 1850 & restored 2002 by great-grandaughter (4th) of Abraham Somes, founder of Somesville. Within walking distance is Somes Sound, Somes Pond (swimming hole quite popular), Long Pond (kayaking, canoeing, swimming), & theatre (live performances). 20 minutes to Bar Harbor, Bass Harbor, Northeast Harbor & 5 miles from Southwest Harbor. Lots of biking, hiking, & beautiful spots to see all surround this warm, charming, family home. Previous renters tell of the strong feeling of love that overcomes them at the top of the stairs & throughout the cottage. The screen shed (attached to barn) is furnished with even a small refrigerator. The flower gardens offer quiet pleasure as well.

Front entry leads to cozy kitchen w/counter seating for two. Formal dining room w/table that seats six comfortably. Living room furnished w/thoughtful mix of antiques and new pieces, both comfortable and inviting. Floors and wall are a mix of old and new, too, helping to update this historic home while maintaining its charm and character.
