Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Longtime vacationers and lovers of Maine became owners of this unique vintage Cottage; perfect for welcoming our family and yours and gathering with friends. Near the activities we love best in Maine...a vacation destination but not a tourist trap. Enjoy this home with a few friends or a large family group...Much comfort and plenty to do!.

Why the Owner Chose Sandy Point, Stockton Springs, ME, USA:
We loved this house before we even stepped inside! We loved the road lined with family cottages going back two or three and now four or five generations. The views from the point are spectacular! The Cottage is classic and cozy but spacious with waterviews from EVERY room! Furnished wraparound porches and deck for morning coffee, reading the afternoon away, and enjoying the beautiful evenings. There are two Weber grills. Dine at home on a Lobster Dinner prepared for you or out at one of the many restaurants nearby. Head off to Acadia and Bar Harbor or take a harbor or Penobscot Bay cruise and see the coast in an entirely new way. Walk around the Point or take the pleasant and user-friendly boardwalk trails of adjacent Sandy Point State Park. Enjoy artisans, farms, flea markets, fairs, festivals

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We loved the long views down Penobscot Bay, the unique spacious rooms (we have a large extended family), the original French doors to the porches. The very accessible waterfront, convenience to Route One.
