Classic Castine cottage with spectacular views of Castine Harbor. Huge, thirty-foot wide, glass enclosed porch, sixty feet up from the water offers wide panoramic views of Castine Harbor, its islands, the Maine coastline, and miles and miles of open sea beyond. A sturdy, hand-railed staircase leads you down to a very private deck just feet from the bulkhead. Walk down a path and descend eight more steps and you're on a rocky beach that is great for strolling along. A five-minute walk from the house leads to Dyces Head Lighthouse and a path that leads you through enchanting woods and then down a long staircase to water’s edge with a unobstructed Western view to soak in beautiful sunsets. In the opposite direction is a scenic walk into the center of town, passing one beautiful, classic seafaring home after another. Stop and read the signposts and learn about Castine’s remarkable history and how it helped shape a nation. Castine is full of antiquities that showcase all the battles that were fought on land and sea. Castine was such an important fortress that even Paul Revere ventured up from Boston to help ensure it wasn’t lost to the enemy. In town, poke around Castine's many shops and antique stores, stop for a quick bite to eat or sit down for a scrumptious meal at one of Castine's many restaurants. Visit the town dock and enjoy a meal there while you look at the State of Maine, the 600-foot training vessel for the Maine Maritime Academy, located a short distance from the water's edge. Kayak rentals and sunset tours of the harbor by kayak are available. If you enjoy tennis or golf, Castine has four clay courts and a well-laid-out nine-hole course that offers many great views of the harbor. If the thought of dipping even your toe into the chilly harbor water is too much, there is the much warmer water to be found at the sandy back shore beach. Water, spectacular views, history, great food, classic architecture, plenty of hiking trails and other outdoor adventure. Castine has it all. But it you make it to Castine, you need to visit one of the nation's premier National Parks: Acadia. With unparalleled views of the Maine coastline, hundreds of miles of Carriage Trails that crisscross the island, 360º panoramic views from atop Cadillac Mountain, charming shops and restaurants in historic Bar Harbor. Mt. Desert Island and Acadia is one of the most amazingly scenic places you will find in this country. The cottage comfortably sleeps 10 people in five bedrooms. Gas stove, washer and dryer, fireplace, and outside deck attached to house with scenic views of the harbor. With all that, visitors tend to park themselves in a chair on the porch and just gaze out at the water as time slips away. The water is constantly moving and changing its mood, seals will sun themselves on the large rocks that appear at low tide, cormorants and loons are abundant. As are memorable times in this charming, well laid out, inviting classic Maine cottage.
