Sorrento house description

This large cottage sits on the crest of a hill overlooking Frenchman Bay, about 200 yards below. Meadows and woods surround the property. A spacious deck off the rear of the house provides a wonderful view and gathering area, perfect for an outdoor lunch, grilling, or glass of wine with cheese before dinner.
The three bedrooms and full bath are found upstairs. The “master bedroom” overlooks the bay and includes a nook with a sink and mirror. The second bedroom has a double bed and attached half-bath. The third bedroom has four single beds.

The first floor has a large, open living room with a view to the bay and mountains, a dining area, and a wood-burning fireplace. Also on the first floor are the kitchen, a washer and dryer, and a half-bath. A screened-in porch attached to the kitchen can serve as a breakfast alcove, or more sleep area.

Walk down the hill from the house and you will reach a large cove, where a boat can be moored and kayaks kept on shore. The bay waters feature remarkable clarity, dolphins and seals, and nearby islands open for exploring.

Also within walking distance is a spring-fed pool (belonging to the town) which has a sand beach and sunbathing platform. For golfers, a scenic, 9-hole, public course, Bonnie Blinks, is about 1.5 miles away. The town also has tennis courts.

Nearby tide pools, paths, and sand beaches provide a natural playground for children. Hiking and exploring opportunities also abound.

                  Coastal Maine offers a treasure of natural scenery and recreational opportunities. This house near the water puts you within easy reach of kayaking, boating, golf, swimming, and hiking. Major tourist draws such as Acadia National Park and bustling Bar Harbor lie across the bay. Quieter natural attractions include the granite cliffs of Schoodic Point, the hike up Schoodic Mountain, and swimming from the sand beaches at nearby lakes. Winter Harbor has a retail lobster 'depot' and restaurants with traditional Maine fare.The major commercial center of Ellesworth is a 25-minute drive away, and has outlet stores, a Home Depot, and supplies for your stay.

                  For the fit and adventurous, the hike to the top of Mt. Champlain via the Cliff Trail will challenge and reward you. A stop for ice cream cones on the way home always seems a timely diversion!
