Property description

A combined living and dining room with cathedral ceiling and large colorful kitchen offer ideal areas for entertaining or family gatherings. The first floor has one bedroom and full bath while the 2nd floor provides 3 more bedrooms and bathroom with shower. The front porch overlooks meadows and woodland, leading down to Frenchman's Bay.

Midway up the Maine coast, this cottage is the perfect pied de terre to visit the rocky peninsulas and inlets of the state. The cottage offers easy access to Acadia and Schoodic for hiking or antiquing. Traveling farther afield, you can reach Campobello to the northeast, Deer Isle to the southwest, and Baxter State Park or fishing camps inland. Explore the surrounding area and find choice galleries of pottery and paintings, a winery, and organic farm.

If staying put and just relaxing is your aim, then walks through the surrounding farmland, blueberry picking, and painting may be more appealing. The nearby town of Sorrento offers great amenities for families. Kids can take tennis, sailing, and swimming lessons or engage in outdoor or rainy day activities with other children. Adults have golfing on the scenic Blink Bonnie golf course by the bay or tennis and croquet. The town provides water access for kayaking or boating.

A fun way to see Mount Desert is to take the ferry from a neighboring peninsula, browse the shops of Bar Harbor, and take an electric bus around Acadia National Park. Hiking the island's mountains offers unsurpassed views of rocky slopes cascading to the ocean, pink granite against deep blue. Follow up your day with fine dining and live theater.

The cottage offers escape from electronic media. A rainy day is a perfect opportunity to curl up with a great book by the fire or play a spirited game of cards. If you really need to check your email, the local library has wifi.

Do you need more room? Ask about our 'sleep cottages' which can be rented in addition to the house.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Sorrento:
The views, ocean breezes, and peaceful location are why we like it here. It represents an escape from the city with its noise and traffic. But we still find plenty to see and do.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We like hiking the trails of surrounding mountains and swimming in freshwater ponds. Other days, we do our gallery hopping. Our kids enjoy running around the mowed meadow nearby playing soccer, baseball, or a spirited game of frisbee. Younger children like picking blueberries for their pancakes or making terrariums out of moss and tiny pines. For city folk like us, we never tire of sunset watching or stargazing.
