Property description

Random Ridge: Situated within walking distance to Thuya Gardens with its historic lodge, lovely paths and beautiful annuals, Random Ridge is a convenient treasure near to the summer communities of both Northeast Harbor and Seal Harbor. First built as a rustic summer lodge in 1885, this nostalgic property was later expanded according to the designs of Fred Savage, renowned architect to some of Northeast Harbor’s favorite turn-of-the-century cottages. With a private wooded setting, rambling layout, lovely water views and a terraced trail to Thuya Gardens, this historic home is sure to delight any family planning daily visits into Acadia National Park.
