About the Property
Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath with jetted tub and shower, (Sleeps 2)
For a terrific view of the coast, from the mountains of Acadia to the islands of Penobscot Bay, take one of the trails up Blue Hill Mountain, just a few minutes from the village. Besides the world famous Wooden Boat School in neighboring Brooklin and The Haystack Mountain School on Deer Isle there are almost endless opportunities for education and activity on the Blue Hill Peninsula. You might want to participate in an oil or pastel class with award-winning artist Carolyn Caldwell - (check her website under her name plus dot com.) And if chamber music is to your liking, you won't want to miss one of the weekly chamber music concerts at Kneisel Hall where for over 100 years they have educated young classical music students as well as offering concerts by renowned performers, including members of the Julliard String Quartet.
Acadia National Park is just beautiful beyond description and only a short drive away. Hike dozens of mountain trails, bike the well-maintained carriage roads, spend the day at Sand Beach, drive to the summit of Cadillac Mountain and watch the sun rise or set. Watch one of the 100-plus cruise ships come into Bar Harbor. The town is loaded with restaurants, shopping, nature cruises and other diversions.
For those of you drawn to the watery side of the coast of Maine, Blue Hill sits in the middle of what some consider the finest sailing grounds in the world. The rugged coast, with innumerable islands, coves, bays and harbors, is a paradise for kayakers and those who want to spend a half day or several days aboard an old schooner seeing Maine as Verrazano and Champlain did.
Know that your hosts want you to have an excellent vacation, and Maine is full of people and places to ensure that you do.

Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: We purchased our land in 1997 and pitched our tent on the shore when we came to Blue Hill weekends until we started building in 2001. We are consummate travelers so we know what makes for a comfortable 'home away from home.' And, we also love living where we do. We find the ocean relaxing and beautiful - watching the bald eagles fly by, listening for the osprey, kingfishers, and terns, observing seals on the rocks and having them play peek-a-boo with you as you kayak the Salt Pond - so much to enjoy - well, come see for yourself. It is a magical place!
Why the Owner Chose Blue Hill, ME, USA:
There is so much beauty all around . . . there is nothing so soothing as sitting on the shore and watching birds, seals, bald eagles and osprey catch a meal, knowing you don't have to work that hard - you just have to choose which one of the great local restaurants where you will enjoy your next meal.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Kayaks are available for your use here on the Salt Pond - paddle in the early morning and find yourself in the midst of seals sunning themselves or bald eagles hunting for breakfast for their young chicks.
