Property description

Designed and built by renowned Philadelphia architect, Linley Johnson, in 1890, this classic Shingle Style cottage is one of the treasures of Grindstone Neck. The all-season cottage was updated in 2007 for a more contemporary living style while lovingly preserving the charming Victorian era details. Enjoy the magnificent views of Frenchman's Bay, Ironbound and, on clear, crisp Maine days, Mount Desert Island, from the large front porch, 2nd floor balconies, 3 of the 2nd floor bedrooms and the "Tower" bedroom on the 3rd floor.

Located only 3 miles from the Schoodic Peninsula of the Acadia National Park, the active lobster and fishing community of Winter Harbor. Grindstone Neck will take you back to another time. It is an idyllic spot to share with family and friends: hike the trails of Schoodic Point; bike to the Winter Harbor 5&10; picnic on the rocky coast surrounding "the Neck"; ferry to Bar Harbor and Mt Desert Island.
Enjoy unlimited use of the facilities of the Grindstone Neck Association for an additional fee: swim in the heated pool(open July to Labor Day); golf with the picturesque Maine backdrop of rocky coast and postcard perfect harbor; play on any of the well maintained tennis courts..
