Franklin house description

The Location: Enjoy the best of Maine with fresh lobster available from fishermen nearby, gorgeous views of the ocean from a beautiful property on Taunton Bay where you can kayak, canoe, bird watch, go fishing, or just sit on the large sunny deck. Within a few minutes are hikes up Schoodic mountain, or along the rocky shore of the Schoodic Peninsula section of Acadia National Park. Close by are small Maine fishing villages, local artisans, and antique shops. Within a half hour you'll be in Acadia National Park on Mt Desert Island, one of America's most visited national parks with its miles of hiking trails and carriage roads for cycling, hiking, even horse-back riding. In and around the park enjoy boat trips, botanical gardens, live theatre and music venues, sailing, and most of all, the breathtaking scenery. Restaurants, charming shops, and artist galleries abound in nearby Winter Harbor, Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, and Seal Harbor, Ellsworth and Blue Hill, all within 30-40 minutes.

The House and Property: For those who prefer to rest and relax, enjoy the sun and watch the ever-changing view of the bay from the spacious south-west facing deck or from most rooms in the house. This house features large open spaces, high ceilings, arched windows, tiled and hardwood floors, and charming balconies inside and out. Launch your kayak or canoe from the launching area just a short walk from the house, or explore the shoreline on the property. Cook up a meal of local fish or produce, read a book, watch a movie or catch up on email. The lovely modern kitchen is stocked with appliances, cookware, dinnerware, and utensils, and adjoins a family-room/ eating area seating 6, a large dining room which seats 8 or 10, and a second large deck on the north-east side of the house. The living room is the favorite place in the house with prime views of the bay, flat screen TV, Wifi and DVD/ CD player.

There are 3 bedrooms with beds for 6, each bedroom having its own bathroom. Linens and towels are supplied, with a washer and dryer. The Master bedroom has a seating area, and plenty of room for a port-a-crib. The second bedroom (upstairs) has a double bed and a Juliet Balcony facing the bay. The third bedroom, on the main floor, also enjoys a beautiful view, access to the front deck, and a full bathroom with shower/ tub. This room has a day bed that converts to two single beds or a king sized bed with bedding provided for both options.

The Locale: The house is 42 miles from Bangor International Airport (BGR) and 16 miles from Bar Harbor Airport. Your practical needs can be met only 10 minutes away in Ellsworth which provides large well-stocked grocery stores, a movie theatre, hospital, pharmacies, a good selection of restaurants, an LL Bean Outlet, and other large stores. Kayaks can be rented in Birch Harbor and kayak tours can also be arranged. Deep sea fishing tours and whale watching tours are available in Bar Harbor, and bikes can be rented in Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We love to hike, canoe, kayak, sail, cross-country ski, and just enjoy nature's beauty. Acadia National Park is one of our favorite places in the world to be, so we are very excited to share the joy and comfort of the home in Franklin with you.

              Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
              This property fulfills our dream of owning a waterfront home near Acadia National Park where we met and have vacationed every year since. We chose this quiet location away from the bustle of Bar Harbor, for its beauty and location on very large Taunton Bay, which is terrific for canoeing & kayaking. We enjoy the quick access to the lakes of Hancock County and the easy 10-minute trip to Ellsworth, where we find excellent grocery shopping and other practical items while we can still be close enough to Acadia to enjoy everything there.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The house reminds us of living in California where homes have large open spaces, bright arched windows, generous decks, tiled and hardwood floors, and charming balconies.
