Sorrento house description
'Blueberry Lodge' is a late-19th-century, 'shingle style' masterpiece -- now fully restored to its original glory (and 'winterized' as well).
Four 'orthodox' bedrooms (each for two persons) and a (also-two-person) second-floor 'sleeping porch'. Cathedral-ceilinged Living Room, two full bathrooms, 'full' kitchen, first-floor and second-floor porches, 'walk-in' cellar and cellar-level 'lower deck'. House is surrounded by lawn -- with the south-side lawn unusually spacious by normal Sorrento standards.
The preceding is just a 'barebones' summary of what is the 'Blueberry Lodge' experience -- a MUCH more detailed description is available upon request.

- Sorrento - A 'Classic' Down East Maine 'summer community' -- very definitely in the 'they-don't-make-them-like-that-anymore' category. A real 'Brigadoon' throwback to another 'era'. Both Sorrento itself and the surrounding ('Down East') region are visually spectacular in the June-through-at-least-late-October time period. The property itself -- 'Blueberry Lodge' -- was originally constructed in the 1880s and is either the oldest or second-oldest 'summer home' in Sorrento. Completely 'restored' and unarguably gorgeous. And the also-spectacular 'main section' of Acadia National Park (on 'Mount Desert Island' in Frenchman Bay) is only a 10-minute motorboat ride or 25-minute 'drive-around' away. (Acadia's so-called 'Schoodic Section' is located right next door to Sorrento in Winter Harbor.) IMPORTANT: A MUCH MORE 'EXHAUSTIVE' TREATMENT OF 'BLUEBERRY LODGE', SORRENTO AND THE NEIGHBORING REGION IS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. ...moreless

About the owner: Donal Barrett is a long-since (1972)-'transplanted'-to-Greater-Boston native of Manhattan and the mid-Atlantic. Susan Barrett is a long-since-'transplanted'-to-the-US (mainly NY and Boston) Brit. Mr. Barrett is a 'recovered'-lawyer-turned-'entrepreneur'. Mrs. Barrett, who began her working life as a nurse -- first in London and then in Australia and the US -- has 're-invented' herself more times than anyone (including her) can count. For a decade-or-more she served as the Public Relations Vice President for the Jim Henson Company (the Muppets) and, more recently, has held assorted positions in the 'public broadcasting' world.
Why the Owner Chose Sorrento:
Why not? Sorrento & 'Blueberry Lodge' is not only gorgeous -- it's 'dripping' with history. (Only one example: The property's original owner, Daniel Lamont, was Grover Cleveland's Secretary of War.) And if there's a lovelier June-through-October 'venue' than Sorrento, please tell us about it -- we sure as heck haven't found any!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Indelible memories -- of a unique place.
