Property description

The Riverhouse - an all season rental is a small shingled cottage located along the Penobscot River. Completely renovated in 1987, the cottage affords our guests views of the river and bay. A walk through fields and adjoining shore path leads you to a secluded beach where you can fish, sunbathe, swim or walk for miles. Located along Maine's mid coast region, it provides a perfect 'place of port' for day excursions. The many antiques shops and fine restaurants in the neighboring towns provide the visitor with many avenues of enjoyment. Or, you may choose to relax, read or just take a nap in the afternoon sun on the deck surrounded by abundant rose bushes. Whatever your choice, your visit to this property will assuredly be a memborable one. The Riverhouse caters to those visitors who are accustomed to the conveniences of today's requirements in an atmosphere of comfort and grace.

Whether you arrive by motorcar, helicopter, seaplane, or motorlaunch, the Riverhouse will afford you the simple elegance that New Englanders have come to expect.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1981

About the owner: I am originally from Orland (two houses away) and am now living back in Orland in my ancestral property. I am now retired from the corporate world and spend my time working on the property, as well as my Bangor home.

Why the Owner Chose Orland:
I grew up 2 houses away and delivered papers to the owners as a kid. When the property became available, I knew I wanted it! Since the house needed 'everything', I decided to gut it to the shell and start over -- thus the pics display the finished product.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
peace and quiet and relaxation
