On the waterfront of beautiful Somes Sound with lovely views of the water and
mountains, this spectacular property is one of the few inholdings within Acadia National Park. Situated on the shoreline of smooth and sloping granite swimming rocks and cedar picnic benches.
The deep waters of Somes Sound make excellent sailing for boats of any size and the house comes with a mooring. The house offers total privacy in the park and one can literally set off hiking, biking, and boating from the front doors. Drive or bike to the village of Northeast Harbor along Sargeant Drive three miles away. Bar Harbor is a 15 minute drive.
MAIN HOUSE: The large one story Main house has sliding glass doors offering views from all areas of the house and leading out to the spacious 450sf wraparound deck. The ceilings are high with screened opening skylights in every room including the bathrooms.
The large living room with fireplace has a spacious dining area adjacent to the fully equipped modern kitchen with island.
The Master Bedroom Suite facing the waterfront includes a private bath, a queen bed and an adjoining sitting room.
The Middle Bedroom has 2 twin beds and a double bed in the loft.
The Third Bedroom has a queen bed.
A second full bath serves these 2 rooms.
The cedar outdoor shower offers privacy, proximity to the swimming rocks, and a great view up the sound.
GUEST HOUSE: The Little House is across the stream and very private. It has a queen bed with a private bathroom and a pullout sofa bed in an alcove off the livingroom with a separate 1/2 bath. Full kitchen. Wraparound deck. Wood stove. Available as a separate rental or at additional cost when renting the Main House.
A large cedar tent platform is hidden in the woods with Adirondack chairs, a cedar chaise, and room for a 4 person tent plus another wonderful view down the sound.
In the opposite direction through the woods, past the 1930's log cabin, is a private beach.
There is also a wonderful playhouse for kids near the horseshoe pit in the woods.
An ideal compound for families or 2-3 couples. Very child friendly. The decks have sturdy cedar railings with rope netting for safety.
We suggest you do your food shopping in Ellsworth or Bar Harbor, as our market in the village is a small specialty shop and can be pricey.
