Property description


A charming cozy cottage on a quiet lane, with breathtaking vistas of Frenchman’s Bay as a backdrop. Enjoy your morning coffee/tea on the back deck watching the mist rise to reveal a spectacular sunny Sorrento Day. Take a short stroll to the Post Office or the front harbor to check on activities, enjoy the picturesque Maine wildflowers, or chat with neighbors.

You can nap on an Adirondack chair or read your favorite book, and then as the afternoon passes, you might walk next door and buy fresh lobsters for a true downeast feast! Simple hors d’oeuvres – just wine and cheese and crackers - become quite a delicacy relaxing on the back deck with friends, and watching a colorful sunset.

Acadia National Park is a 30-40 minute drive where you will discover hiking trails for all skill levels, the Jordan Pond House for lunch or perhaps afternoon tea and popovers, and carriage paths where you can explore the historical roots of the area. Bar Harbor provides many more “touristy” opportunities for a yummy pancake breakfast, shopping, whale watching, or catching one of the latest flicks with a simple dinner at “Reel Pizza.”

If you don’t want to travel that far, hop into your car for 15-20 minutes and climb Schoodic Mountain (one of our favorite hikes) and then relax and swim on a sandy beach upon your descent, and treat yourself to a refreshing dip of Gifford’s Homemade ice cream before returning home.

A rainy day might invite you to hunker down and read . . . or drive 15 miles to Ellsworth to browse for a new book, hit the sales at LL Bean, explore the retired but really useful kitchen items at Rooster Brother’s Upstairs, or savor a dining experience at one of the many great restaurants in Hancock County.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: Kathy and I feel lucky for every minute we get to spend in our magical Maine location. We love the pure air, the ocean breezes and the intriguing coastline. Our lab Abbey loves to swim and chase tennis balls while we search for seaglass and beach stones, and she loves to go with us on our favorite mountain hikes just a few miles from home.

Why the Owner Chose Sorrento, ME, USA:
My family has been summering in Sorrento since the 1890s. When this house came on the market we jumped at the chance to buy it and to continue the long tradition of living life as it should be...

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Short walk to the post office and front harbor. Step next door and buy fresh Maine lobsters from our neighbor. The golf course offers fantastic views of Acadia and the bay, plus there are many days when you can feel like the course is all yours to golf, stroll, and pick blueberries.
