Plus, you can stroll through the gorgeous landscape of this unique property, down the 1/4 path to the shore and a shared dock, right on Somes Sound. Mountain laurel, pines, a babbling brook, granite outcroppings, deer, fox, chickadees, and more...all at your doorstep!

Designed for Enjoying and Relaxing: The main living area is drenched in sunlight, and includes an open floor plan with kitchen, living and dining area on the top floor to capitalize on the gorgeous views of Somes Sound, Acadia Mountain and the surrounding landscape. Convenience abounds with direct access from the kitchen to the large deck with outdoor seating and gas grill.

Also perched on the upper deckis a HOT TUB! A perfect spot for enjoying the spectacular views of Somes Sound and Acadia Mountain, watching the visiting deer or for soothing tired muscles after a picture-perfect day of hiking, biking, shopping, swimming or sightseeing! Gather around the fire pit and enjoy roasting marshmallows or a cocktail. Firewood provided!

Sleeping quarters and bathroom are downstairs and include 2 bedrooms, one with queen bed and twin bed, and the other with a double bed. Another smaller deck off this level affords beautiful views of Acadia Mountain.
