Somesville house description

Tern II is a comfortable oceanfront cedar house located on NW side of Mount Desert Island with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths in the main house and an additional separate and private 1 bedroom, 1 bath studio. We have a private dock and pebble beach for swimming or launching your canoe or kayak. This is a kayaker's, hiker's and nature lover's dream come true. Our deck is huge and perfect for spectacular sunset viewing while feasting on freshly steamed lobster as you watch the sun set behind Blue Hill. Tern II is located on the waterfront with 12 private acres of Maine woods and a gorgeous view overlooking the islands as the tide quietly slips in and out and the Harbor Seals vie for their spot on Seal Rock. Scenic Somesville is the nearest town. Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Southwest Harbor and Bass Harbor are all easy access. Enjoy this undisturbed quiet cove with abundant wild life: seals, porpoises, loons, bald eagles,ospreys, and starfish.

• Spectacular Views
• Ocean Frontage
• Private Dock
• Abundant Wildlife
• Calm Ocean Waters

“After 35 years of visiting Mt. Desert we have finally found the house of our dreams on this island.”
“Once again my soul has been renewed to the “spirit of nature”.

                      Year Purchased: 1900

                      Why the Owner Chose Somesville:
                      The property has been in the Newbold family for over 100 years. Great-grandfather, George Wharton Pepper of Philadelphia, helped establish the tradition of vacationing on Mount Desert Island, making the journey each summer even before cars were allowed on the island.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Quiet, calm and peace. Enjoy Maine as it should be!
