Keywords: Charming Summer Home
Our family has been summering in Blue Hill for over 25 years. When this house, across the street from our family's summer home became available...we jumped. Our children have spent every summer in Blue Hill, teaching sailing at the local yacht club, hiking in Acadia, gathering mussels and even getting married here. It is our special place and hope you will love as we do.
The Owner purchased this house in 2000
Nothing is better than rocking on the porch when the sun begins to fade. On cool nights we gather in front of the fire with board games. Take an early morning walk on the quarry road with magnificant views of Mount Desert and Blue Hill Bay. Sit on the kitchen porch sipping coffee while the bees and hummingbirds visit the cottage garden. Cook your own lobster and enjoy them with the warm butter , fresh local bread and produce.
Perfect home for out of town guests & family attending my son's wedding. Plenty of room & home is equipped with everything you would need. Quiet & peaceful dead end street. Would be a perfect base to explore Penobscot Bay area & Acadia National Park with family & friends. Rental process was very easy & owner able to accommodate a Wednesday to Wednesday rental week for us. Good rental for someone who wants to experience all that this beautiful area of Maine offers.
Our family of five rented this house along with another family. Our group consisted of four adults and six children ranging in age from 7 to 15. This house served as our base of operations for our 2013 summer vacation in Maine. The house was large enough to comfortably accommodate all of us. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, with plenty of linens. The house also had a dining room table that allowed all of us to sit together for meals. There was a large side yard for the children to play in and also a closet full of board games to keep them occupied. The porch was a favorite place to sip on a beverage while enjoying the breeze off the bay. Blue Hill was a great place to vacation. We were not too far from hiking in Acadia and Blue Hill, shopping in Bar Harbor, and exploring all of the little towns, coves, and hidden treasures the area has to offer. The owner was fantastic. She was very friendly and helpful. She gave us local hints regarding shopping and dining, she provided tips regarding hiking in Blue Hill and Acadia, and she even helped us find the best place to get local lobster.
My family and I rented this enchanting home for the month of August last summer. What a delightful place. We loved how well appointed it was, every detail taken care of. I especially loved making blueberry pancakes in the morning, a quart of fresh wild blueberries from a roadside farm stand and everything in need in a kitchen to whip up some magic. Sipping coffee in the morning on the rocker, gazing out over the bay. Cutting fresh bouquets from the fabulous garden. So many games and puzzles to chose from. Comfortable and cozy beds made for a great night's sleep. Huge dining room table perfect for family feasts. Lobster dinners outside on the porch, sunset views. Walks to the quarry with our dog were a fantastic blend of workout and discovery. We will cherish our summer memories at Freddie's lovely home forever. If we weren't buying our own summer home this year we would certainly be back. Thanks for everything! Especially loved the big fresh cut branches of balsam which made the house smell divine.
My husband and I have enjoyed two wonderful Augusts in this warm, comfortable house. The location is ideal for taking long, private walks with water views or for running into town for quick errands. The kitchen is fully equipped for entertaining, and the house is large enough to accomodate several guests. Help with any questions about the house is closeby, and we found everything was as described in the listing. We would certainly recommend this Blue Hill house to anyone who wants to experience the joys and cooler temperatures of a Maine summer. MB
Walk the private road along Blue Hill Bay where the unique colored granite was mined and cool pools of water remain.
