About the Property
NEW IN 2014: KITCHEN COMPLETELY REMODELED AND ENTIRE HOUSE UPDATED
The Piper's Nest was built by our mother to bring her 5 children and their families together. When we are not using it we rent it out for others to enjoy. It is a cozy, adaptable place for large or small groups. A fully modern kitchen opens to dining and lounging areas. Children will love the bunkroom and will find plenty of books and toys for a rainy day. One of the bedrooms is located on the main floor near a handy full bath-laundry room. Futons on the porch and living room can unfold for additional sleeping places. The other 3 bedrooms, plus the bunkroom, are upstairs with a full bathroom. In addition to the fireplace we recently added a furnace to provide heat for chilly mornings and evenings. The large kitchen is stocked with a few basic non-perishables and is equipped to cook for a crowd with its Microwave, Bosch gas range, and grill on the wrap around porch. There is a sink that can handle a lobster pot and a second sink on the central island where wild blueberry pancakes can be cooked family style. The cottage opens out onto a large screened porch for enjoying morning coffee, afternoon naps, playing games or eating meals at the large picnic table. On rainy days our cozy reading nooks, games and books will keep everybody busy. A flat screen plays DVDs from our small but growing collection. Smith Cove is great for kayaking because it is protected from wind and ocean swells. A short paddle at low tide takes you by the rocks where harbor seals bask in the sun. A hammock swings in front of the house where you can also enjoy a flat grassy area perfect for frisbee or badminton. Bike routes around Cape Rosier and Holbrook Island Sanctuary trailheads can be found near the end of our drive. Drive 30 minutes into Blue Hill or Stonington for some sightseeing and shopping. Acadia and Bar Harbor are an hour's drive away and make for a great day trip.
