Property description

Anchorhold, a 5000+ sq. ft. 'cottage' in a national historic district, was built in 1885 and lovingly restored over the last five years. Perfect for family and friend vacations, birthdays and anniversaries, the house sleeps 13 and has 7 bedrooms, 4 of which have private bathrooms. This house has central air on the main floor and includes an eat-in kitchen with a large farm table that seats 8+, an island with 2 stools, and a formal dining room that seats 10. A dining deck lies just outside the kitchen through the french doors. The house has a large living room and a family room (Oak Room), with a natural fireplace, overlooking Frenchman Bay. Outside the living room is a covered veranda also overlooking the water and the Porcupine Islands. The main floor has a half bath off of the foyer. The main floor also has a laundry/mud room off of the kitchen.

Bedrooms
The main-floor master bedroom suite (Cook's Quarters), with central air, has a king-size bed. The bathroom includes the original pedestal tub and separate step-in shower with handrails and bench.

The remaining six bedrooms are located on the second floor. The Blue Room has one low-profile twin bed and shares a hall shower-bathroom with the Chapel Room. The Chapel Room has two beds and walk-in closet. It overlooks the stone walled lawn and gardens. The Morgan Room has two twin beds (convertible to king upon request), a private balcony, and en-suite bathroom with tub/shower. The Master Bedroom (Mrs. Randolph's Room) with private balcony on Frenchman Bay has a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom with pedestal sink, original tub, separate shower, toilet and bidet. The Dorr Room has a king-size bed, en suite bath w/step-in shower and handrails, plus bench, and private covered porch overlooking the water. The Whitney Room has a 4 poster king-size bed with Bay view. The bathroom across the hall has a claw foot tub and separate shower. All bedrooms upstairs have individual, remote control, A/C wall units and additional fans.

The second floor also has a laundry room.

Courtyard garden has a charcoal bar-b-que.

Grotto steps lead down to the water that has beach exposed at low tide. Great for shelling and finding beach glass. Also hike to Bar Island.
