Property description

You'll love the isolation and privacy of this welcoming oceanfront house. Facing the water, the spacious house is situated in a broad clearing, surrounded heavily wooded acreage. It's the perfect place for relaxation and recreation. A short stroll to the secluded sandy beach will convince you that you've found the perfect vacation rental.

From the moment you turn into the wooded lane at 313 Cape Splt Rd., you'll enter the Maine of yesteryear. Passing the lily pond, you'll be siezed by the urge to return with an easel and paintbrush to recreate the bucholic scene.

As the woods open to a large clearing, the rambling clapboard house with an attached barn is revealed. This typical Maine farmhouse faces Pleasant Bay where it joins the Atlantic Ocean. The landscape in front of the house includes a wide sloping lawn and a huge garden of beach roses. A winding path through the rose garden takes you to a beautiful sand beach, a rare find indeed, on the Maine Coast. This easily accessible beach is framed by evergreens and rugged rock outcroppings which jut out into the water. Several islands, including Mt. Desert Island in Acadia National Park, as well as the occasional lobsterboat, complete this most picturesque scene. You'll want to gather driftwood to prepare for a bonfire on the beach at the end of the day.

Once inside the house, nostalgia takes over. Many features of the house are the same as they were in the early 1930's when it was built. Vintage furnishings carry you back to your grandparents' time. Wide plank floors of hard pine are set with recessed hand forged nails, remeniscent of the craftmanship from the turn of the century. The floors are so solid that you'll never hear a squeak. Front and back stairs to the second floor are a rarity today and very convenient when a large group occupies the house.

A few of the area's many attractions include Bar Harbor, Campobello, the summer home of FDR's family, Acadia National Park, numerous lighthouses, intriqueing small towns, driving the Maine coastline, blueberry picking, enjoying lobster rolls, and visiting a wide variety of galleries, along with boating, fishing, and wading in the surf.

Among the on site activities are hiking, kayaking, canoeing, rowing, exploring the shoreline, visiting the islands, shelling, or reading or napping on the big window seat in the bay window of the living room.

After an active day, you'll be ready for an evening of relaxation, fine dining, and good company. Stop at the South Addison Wharf on your way home to pick up fresh lobster. ( $4.00 a lb in 2011! ) Gather on the sunporch to unwind and watch the spectacular sunset over the water. Then move on to the enormous oak dining room table and enjoy a repast of the sweetest, most succulent lobster you've ever tasted. After dessert, stroll to the beach and reminisce to the dancing light of the bonfire. If the weather doesn't cooperate, gather round the fireplace in the living room to complete the evening.

Our family is drawn back to Cape Split year after year. The place is simply one of a kind, a rare treasure among vacation rentals. It is every bit as seductive as Maine's dramatic coastline. We are so glad the owners have decided to share this magical place with the general public.
