Property description

East Lodge is in Hancock, Maine, 15 miles past Ellsworth and quite near Bar Harbor. My cabin overlooks Jellison Cove and the Porcupine Islands, is in the woods, a short walk from the beach, and about half an hour from Mt Desert Island, home of Acadia National Park where there are multitudes of things to do for young and old. Visitors are welcome to stroll through my gardens. (I am a professional landscape designer). The sitting room/dining area are comfy and great for family chats. You can eat at the library sized table, overlooking the ocean view or on the screened porch or the deck...- Adirondak chairs rest on my mossy 'lawn' overlooking the ocean vista through the tall spruce trees or snooze in the hammock under the pines. You can even dine on the brand new picnic table as you watch the red sailed boats out of Bar Harbor. WiFi is available. There is a TV with a DVD player and decent phone reception.
I am a working artist and sell my work in local galleries. Some teaching is available upon request.

From Hancock, it is a quick ride to Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor; in the other direction, you can go to Schoodic, the quieter part of Acadia. In both parks, there are awesome trails to bike and hike. There are several delicious and cute restaurants (Chester Pikes has the BEST breakfasts!!!) within 15 minutes and you are just 15 miles from Ellsworth, the cultural center of the area. And one can rent bikes, kayaks and canoes from a local sports shop.

Flights go directly to Bangor which is about an hour from my house....you can get a car at the airport. Another option is to fly to Bar Harbor Airport - about 45 minutes or less from EastLodge. The scenery is unbeatable!


I hope you'll come and see beautiful Maine.

East Lodge is in Hancock, Maine, 15 miles past Ellsworth and quite near Bar Harbor. My cabin overlooking Jellison Cove and the Porcupine Islands, is in the woods, a short walk from the beach, and about half an hour from Mt Desert Island, home of Acadia National Park where there are multitudes of things to do for every age. Visitors are welcome to stroll through my gardens. (I am a professional landscape designer). The sitting room/dining area are comfy and interesting to the artistic eye. You can breakfast or snack sitting on the screen porch or at the long old library table in the dining area overlooking the ocean vista through the tall spruce trees. WiFi is available. There is a TV with a DVD player upon request and decent phone reception.

I am a working artist and this space displays my work which I sell in local galleries. Some teaching is available upon request. This is a unique home with lots of artistic touches. I built much of it myself!

From Hancock, it is a quick ride to Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor; in the other direction, you can go to Schoodic, the quieter part of Acadia. In both parks, there are awesome trails to bike and hike. There are several delicious and cute restaurants (Chester Pikes has the BEST breakfasts!!!) within 15 minutes and you are just 15 miles from Ellsworth, the cultural center of the area. And one can rent bikes, kayaks and canoes from a local sports shop.

Flights go directly to Bangor which is about an hour from my house....you can get a car at the airport. Another option is to fly to Bar Harbor Airport - about 45 minutes or less from EastLodge. The scenery is unbeatable!

I hope you'll come and see beautiful Maine.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I am a working artist - my medium is rustic woodworking. I earn my dollars as a landscape designer heading my company for the past 20 years. I'm the granny of three young'uns! My two children are terrific and have set their successful lives on opposite coasts. I love the beauty of the Maine landscape and am thrilled to be outside most of the time after living most of my life in Philadelphia.

Why the Owner Chose Hancock, ME, USA:
I started to visit Maine in 1982 when my kids first went to camp here. For numerous summers, I'd travel up and down the coast with my friend - we were the "Flotsam and Jetsum" Duet, landing where it looked interesting. I decided after years of wandering, to purchase land and build my dream home, based on the design of the summer camp I'd gone to as a kid. I loved the process and am pleased as can be with the result.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Your family will be comfortable and rested in this well equipped stunning space with its marvelous views of the ocean, lobster boats, Porcupine Islands and close at hand beaches. The local lobsters are the best around and you can even have them cooked for you. There are several good restaurants close by or you can venture into Ellsworth, Bar Harbor or Blue Hill for a change of scene. I chose to build my home here because the view was so sweet and it included the rugosa roses along the beachside. The sun rises and shines on my pillow each day and a sense of peace opens my eyes.
