When you are in South Blue Hill you are next door to wonderful Brooklin, where some renters have taken classes ( ). The neighboring historic villages are fun to explore-- Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Castine, Stonington, Deer Isle, and Camden. You can also drive over to Acadia and spend the day hiking and be home by the afternoon to enjoy the views of Acadia. Blue Hill is an easy 45 minute drive to Bangor International Airport and just a little over two hours to the Portland airport. If you fly into Portland then you can hit the outlets and LL Bean in Freeport on your way to Blue Hill.

The dining room has a table that will expand to seats 6 comfortably. Off the living room is a porch and into the Gazebo that is screened in and is a perfect breakfast spot that keeps you safe from the bugs. The house is just for the summer, there is baseboard heating and fans, but the large sliding doors are generally open all time. The breezes will fly through the house.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas stove, pots and pans, dishes, glasses and silverware, filtered water in the whole house. There are lots of kitchen tools including a waffle maker, Cuisinart, immersion blender, and a big pot for lobsters.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: This was my grandparents house. I am the third generation to go to the property.

                  Why the Owner Chose Blue Hill:
                  We can not be at the house all summer long and we want others to enjoy the views and serenity.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The area is quiet, except for the chipmunks and birds. We have a TV/DVD, but no reception. You are unplugged. We do have dsl, so if you need the news, you can stream it. There are bunch of my grandparent's old furniture in the house, wonderful antiques.
