Property description

Friends Corner was built as a family cottage in the 1930s. It is named for granite watering troth, the beautiful English garden and large terraced yard.

Gather with family and friends on the porch to enjoy views of Blue Hill Bay or walk down the wooded lane to the old granite quarry dock with views across the bay to Acadia National Park. Linger over a lobster dinner and perhaps build a fire to ward off the chill.

All bedrooms are upstairs, three of the bedrooms have queen beds, with double beds in two bedrooms. Three baths upstairs, two are hall baths , the master bedroom has a private bath. One full bath with shower stall downstairs. All the iron beds have handmade quilts and down comforters for a cozy, warm night.

The kitchen has been renovated with all modern conviences, microwave, blender, mixmaster, extensive spice selection, cookware and utensils. The dinning room seats 12 for a lively meal with views of the bay. The porch has seating for 6.

The living room is furnished with comfortable seating and a working fireplace. Firewood is provided. Set off the kitchen is a cozy den with TV.

The cottage garden, lining the walk from the garage and parking area, provides fresh flowers for the guest. A large yard is perfect for young children to run and play, or for a game of softball, crouquet or boules.

Car: Recommended

Walk the private road along Blue Hill Bay where the unique colored granite was mined and cool pools of water remain. Beautiful views of Mount Desert / Acadia National Park, numerous islands, and seals excite the viewer. Try kayaking in the bay ,climbing Blue Hill Mountain or taking a sail on the numerous boats available nearby. Explore the art gallaries of Deer Isle , experience the local color of Stonington, or take a walk in historic Castine. Sign up for classes at the Wooden Boat School or take a trip to explore the sea life with Maine Enviromental Research Institute. Enjoy the town of Blue Hill, smell the fresh breads baking or stop by for a wine tasting. The Blue Hill Farmers Market on Saturdays is fun for the whole family.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Our family has been summering in Blue Hill for over 25 years. When this house, across the street from our family's summer home became available...we jumped. Our children have spent every summer in Blue Hill, teaching sailing at the local yacht club, hiking in Acadia, gathering mussels and even getting married here. It is our special place and hope you will love as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Nothing is better than rocking on the porch when the sun begins to fade. On cool nights we gather in front of the fire with board games. Take an early morning walk on the quarry road with magnificant views of Mount Desert and Blue Hill Bay. Sit on the kitchen porch sipping coffee while the bees and hummingbirds visit the cottage garden. Cook your own lobster and enjoy them with the warm butter , fresh local bread and produce.
