Enjoy this beautiful cottage in the Historical town of Castine, Maine. Built in 1779, this home has brought many wonderful memories to families who have vacationed here. This home is ocean front, on the beautiful harbor, so you can spend hours a days, sitting on the huge wrap around deck, watching the boats and schooners go by. The grass area that leads to the ocean is large enough for all types of family games. The house is located a short walking distance to town, restaurants, shops, golf course, tennis courts, the light house, various forts to explorer and the town dock where you can grab an ice cream and enjoy a fun afternoon. If you enjoy water sports, there is boating, canoeing, SUP and kayaking. You can go across the harbor and explore the numerous islands that you can see from the front deck. If you need to venture out, Acadia National Forest and Bar Harbor are 40 minutes away, where there is incredible hiking and tons of retail shops and restaurants. And if antiquing is your passion, there are more shops then you ever dreamed of! Many families choose to stay in town and enjoy the views, golf, tennis, town dock, Dennet's Wharf, Eaton's boatyard, historical forts, restaurants, bars and the remarkably quaint and friendly town of Castine.
