About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-8)

Our cottage was built in the 1960's and remodeled in 2009. It sits on 2 private acres and 250 feet of private ocean front. We are located at the confluence of the Narraguagus River and the ocean. This brings unique wildlife and birds to the area. Close by are sections of Acadia Park, Petit Manan Wildlife Refuge, Chair Pond and Petit Manan Point hiking areas as well as , the little more difficult, hike up Pigeon Hill which has fantastic views of the coast and surrounding islands.

In season ( late July to mid August) we are only a few miles form the largest blueberry harvesting area in the world.
It is common to se deer and occasional a moose in our area.

Milbridge is a coastal fishing community. It has a rich shipbuilding history and now supports a large lobster fishing fleet. The community has shopping, a laundry, antique shops, movie theater and a medical center.

It is also a great place to just relax and read a book. Or sit out on the deck or lawn chairs and watch for eagles and see fishing boats coming and going from the bay.

On our lot we have a big open lawn great for kids to play on or for exercising you dog.

We are located in a quiet residential area with the closest neighbors several humdred feet away and screened by woods. This is truly a private setting but still close to everything.

My wife and I have owned the adjacent home for years and we both grew up in Milbridge. I am a retired Environmental Engineer and my wife is a retired Teacher.

I now commercially fish lobster in the summer months and run a coastal charter for whales , puffins, sea birds, lighthouses, Islands,and day trips to Mt Desert Island.

Besides the private beach adjacent the cottage we have access to another private breach a short walk from the cottage .

Keywords: private cottage on the ocean close to town. It is located 45 minutes from the eastern most section of Acadia Park and 1 hour from Bar harbor.

Why the Owner Chose Milbridge, ME, USA:
The cottage was available to us from an elderly lady and good friend who built it in the 1960's and it sits a few hundred feet away from and directly adjacent to our own home. We have 10 grandchildren , ages 2 to 11 and some day it will be for their use.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The area is close to town in a primarially residential area which is quite , peaceful and private. The bird and other wild life is abundant and the sunsets are spectacular. For those not familiar with the tids it is interesting to see the changes continually occuring as the tide comes and goes.
