Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: The owner and his late wife hired local architect Bruce Stahnke to design this off-the-grid house. His son (a master cabinetmaker) built it in 2012 to share with family. They enjoy bird watching fishing, boating, camping and exploring the nearby islands. He grew up coming here as a little kid on weekends and vacations with siblings and later his own boys. They would clamber and play on the beach all day and fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Now they enjoy sharing this paradise with people from all over the world.

Why Harborside, Brooksville, ME, USA:
This area has a lot to offer for people who love nature, forests, and the sea. We suggest you stop for groceries in Blue Hill before you get here because it's a bit of a drive to get them and you won't want to leave! There are two excellent food markets 40 minutes away in Blue Hill and a smaller one in Brooksville called Buck's Harbor Market with a great restaurant too. This location is safe, absolutely beautiful, quiet and remote. Relaxing on the screen porch with cold drink or taking in the sunset on the beach is a great way to end the day.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You might like to sample the remarkable local fare at Brooksville Farmers Market Tuesday Mornings Also you may wish to call in an order for artisanal wood fired pizza to Tinder Hearth Bakery (Tuesdays and Fridays) (207) 326-8381 and pick up some currant scones or chocolate croissants for the next day's breakfast while you're there. A low key afternoon could include strolling the sidewalks of Castine village and swimming at Wadsworth Cove Beach just outside of Castine. Back in Brooksville, you will be able to see for miles after hiking up John B. Mountain Trail …Try a more formal dinner at the Brooklin Inn..Dancing at the Flash In The Pans steel band street dance (locations change but it's always Monday nights usually at the Blue Hill Town Park). Getting a Spiced Mocha at Black Dinah's Chocolatiers in Blue Hill. Galleries and antique shops are abundant and good. See a movie at The Alamo Theatre in Bucksport. Take in guided kayak tours from Stonington...Get home-made ginger ice cream at Morton's Moo in Ellsworth. And oh yes…of course, there's that breathtaking and famous Acadia National Park too, with fun Bar Harbor shops, cafes, Acadia Improv, great breakfast at Two Cats, mountain biking and day sails... so much to do.
