Property description

Summer cabin on deep water bay, 20 minute drive from Milbridge, about an hour down-east from Ellsworth/Mt Desert/Acadia National Park.

Cabin is family owned and used by the family, but we rent when we are unable to use it.

Located in a small settlement of summer residences (about 12 summer houses) on the west side of Petit Manan Point, surrounded by the Petit Manan Wildlife Refuge. Many of these cabins have been in the same family since they were built in the early 1900's. Cabin is rustic but comfortable. Kitchen has propane stove, refrigerator, double sink, lots of pots, pans, utensils.

Kitchen/dining in the middle room, main rooms on each side, one with fireplace and double bed, the other with wood stove and bunk beds plus a twin bed. Enclosed porches at each end have sleeping room with double bed and bathroom. Shower in one bath, toilet/sink only in the other.
