Enjoy our classic, pre-civil war cape with commanding views of the Bagaduce River and our pristine salt marsh. Tour the peninsula, including Blue Hill (8 miles), Castine (9 miles), and experience unspoiled coastal Maine. Or, just relax in the Adirondack chairs and watch the bald eagle feed on the flats.
Our old house maintains its original character, but offers a new fully equipped kitchen, three bedrooms with original wide plank pine floors, and two bathrooms, one with a classic claw foot tub and shower, and one, all new, with a stall shower. The brick wood burning fireplace in the living room will take the chill off the cool Maine summer evenings. Don't expect level floors.
Penobscot is a tiny, unspoiled town with a little market (great breakfast sandwiches and coffee to go, ready by 6:30 am!) and a traditional Maine 'clam shack' (whole take out lobsters cooked to order, $6 last summer), an ideal location to explore the Blue Hill peninsula, home to many excellent restaurants, artisans, antique shops, and world famous destinations like the Wooden Boat School, Kneisel Hall music center, and The Good Life Center located at the Nearing homestead in Brooksville. Take a day trip to Stonington (26 miles; a beautiful drive), an authentic fishing village with an eclectic artists' community; not to be missed.

Year Purchased: 1975
About the owner: We bought this 90 acre farm in 1975, and lived here year 'round for six years. We return every summer, and wonder why we ever left.
Why the Owner Chose Penobscot, ME, USA:
We chose Penobscot, on the wonderful Blue Hill peninsula, to enjoy the 'Good Life.'
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Penobscot is unique. The house enjoys convenient access to Blue Hill and Castine, but the hustle and bustle of 'vacationland' never intrudes. Our view of Northern Bay is ever changing, as the tides ebb and flow. In the spring, when the alewives are running, bald eagles flock to Penobscot.
