The Austin House is located in a small coastal village in a very rural area of Maine. This is a quiet place, close to many scenic areas and parks that offer places for all kinds of outdoor activities. The home was an Inn during the latter part of the 19th century owned by the local blacksmith, Moses Austin. The home was completely renovated in 2010, preserving most of the original Greek revival architecture. It is a cozy place to just sit on the front porch and watch the tide come in and out. The location is convenient for sight seeing in either direction as it is only an hour from most major attractions from Bar Harbor to Campobella Island. The property includes a vegetable and flower garden that guests are free to harvest. The home is completely equipped with everything you will need for your stay. All linens and towels are provided. The kitchen contains everything you may need for cooking. Lawn chairs are provided for sitting in the back yard, and rocking chairs for sitting on the front porch. The home is just 5 minutes from Hwy 1 - so easy access to the highway for sightseeing trips. There is a grocery store just 5 minutes away on Hwy 1 as well as a hardware store, so you can easily pick up food on the way home when you are cooking.
Live lobster can be purchased directly from the wharf down in South Addison just a 15 minute drive.

Our house is about a half hour drive from the Schoodic part of Acadia National Park and about 1 hr and 20 minutes from the Mount Desert Island part of Acadia Park. In addition, we have many conservation areas and state recreation parks within a half hour drive that have beautiful coastal views, hiking trails, and access to the water for kayaking or beach activities. These include Petit Manan Wildlife area just outside of Milbridge where you will find a beautiful hike up Pigeon Hill with views of the coast, Tunk Mountain hiking trails just outside of Cherryfield, Wass Island off of Jonesport where there are several miles of coastal hiking on Nature Conservancy land, and the Cutler wildlife areas with hikes to the coast, and Roques Bluff State Park which has a very large beach and hiking trails. There are also several boat tours that leave from Milbridge, Lubec, and Bar Harbor, including one from Addison to view Puffins and whales , and take in the lobster fishing.
