Property description

Our guests LOVE this house -- and so will you! (Don't take just our word for it -- read the Guest Comments, and you'll see...)

Please call for July 4, 2013 special (stay nine nights for $2900).

A rare opportunity to enjoy world-class modern design in the Maine woods! Designed by award-winning architect Julio Salcedo. 30 minutes to Bangor Airport and Acadia National Park.

This new modern house is on pristine, expansive Branch Lake. Branch Lake is one of Maine's premier lakes -- 6 miles long, 120+ feet deep, clean and clear. Great swimming, fishing, boating.

Quiet, wooded site. Perfect spot from which to explore Downeast Maine. 30 minutes to Acadia National Park (great hiking, cross-country skiing, etc.). Close to several charming towns (Ellsworth, Surry, Blue Hill, Bar Harbor, Castine, etc.). While close to all these places, the house itself is 4 miles off the highway, via dirt roads.

Airy, bright, skylit layout, with an open living room and kitchen, and a separate dining area. High ceilings in living area and two bedrooms. Beautiful wood floors throughout. Very large master bedroom is located on the left side of the house and on the right side you will find 2 other bedrooms and one full bath. When not used for sleeping, the third bedroom easily becomes a very bright and welcoming extra living space. Two bedrooms have large windows and sliding doors facing the lake. Upper scale home with a beautiful wood-burning fireplace in the living area, large windows for views of the lake and towering tall trees, and tasteful modern decorations throughout.

The house has a deck on the main living level and a partially covered patio area on the lower level. Multiple outdoor tables (on deck, on patio and at lake-side). TV, stereo, DVD. Fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher. Washer/Dryer. Towels and linens provided.

Awesome dock takes you right onto the water. Tie up a boat! Dive in for a swim! Also great for fishing...

Available year-round. Fall is for foliage (peaking around the second week of October) and festivals, as well as boating, swimming, hiking, etc. Winter is for quiet, exquisitely beautiful landscapes, and a host of winter sports (x-country skiing, skating, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice-fishing). Spring is the great awakening -- fishing and birdwatching are both at their best -- a chance to savor the long days without the summer crowds. Summer hardly needs mentioning -- boating, swimming, hiking, fishing, relaxing, eating -- classic Maine!

Rents by the week (Saturday-Saturday). This house is truly one-of-a-kind. You'll fall in love when you arrive and you won't ever want to leave...
