Welcome to Into the Woods! This fully remodeled (2007) home has the qualities of a timber frame and Rocky Mountain log home wrapped all into one great experience. From the 700 sf living room with propane fire place and 50 inch plasma television to the chef's quality kitchen to the in home guest apartment, this home meets the demands of the most discriminating traveler.

The home sleeps up to 16 people depending on set up and at 6500 sf you won't be bumping into each other at every turn. If one needs additional space please refer to VRBO listings 417250 and 404715 as they are also on the property and would turn this into a compound enabling parties of up to 30 to enjoy.

1st Floor:

**For those parties requiring a chef, contact us early and we can help you locate one.**

The chef's quality kitchen has all the latest appliances including a 48 inch DCS professional gas range/cook top with dual ovens, GE Monogram refrigerator, 2 dishwashers, 2 coffee makers, (regular and decaf) and a GE Advantium microwave oven.
Beautiful slate adorn the counter tops which include 2 sinks. There are also 2 dishwashers to handle larger groups.

And new for 2016 is the "Beverage Center" that includes 2 auto drip coffee makers (one for regular and one for decaf), Keurig coffee maker, french press coffee maker and a iced tea maker.

The first floor is also where the larger living and dining rooms are. The dining room table seats 8, a second corner table that seats 6, with seating for 4 at the island and 2 additional small children's tables round out the seating.

Directly off the kitchen is the atrium room which features lots of glass both around and above the room and log furniture. The best part is the 5 foot tall double waterfall that echoes throughout the home and is viewable from here. The room is fully furnished and is usually the favorite spot to hang out in the home.

The great room is directly off the dining room and features a floor to ceiling fireplace and 10 foot ceilings. With plenty of seating and a 50 inch Panasonic Viera plasma TV.

There is the first floor office directly off the great room where you can go to get some office work done or have a quiet place for a phone call.

The first floor laundry has 2 washers and 2 dryers and a dog shower! There is a laundry chute on the 2nd floor that goes directly into the laundry room.

The downstairs bath is directly off the great room.

Floors throughout the home feature rustic maple and red oak with radiant floor heating.

2nd Floor:

Enjoy the 1200 sf master bedroom with King bed, propane fireplace, 2 person jacuzzi tub and double shower. Enjoy the use of a wall hung Dr. Mercola Vitamin D tanning light. There are also 2 vanities with a make up counter and bidet with commode. There is also a 42 inch HDTV/DVD in the bedroom. Workout equipment includes a Power Plate and a Total Gym XL.

There are 3 additional bedrooms that share one full bath. Two of the bedrooms have queen beds and the third has a XL twin bed over a queen as a bunk bed and a pull out trundle twin bed.

3rd Floor:

The 3rd floor features a large office and 1400 sf guest apartment. The apartment has a full bath, queen bed, large sofa with queen pull out sleeper and fantastic views. There is also a 35 inch TV. Perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids or a traveling sitter or staff.
The office is another place to do some work if the need arises.

4th Floor:

The 4th floor features a small sitting room with a full size futon which can be used for additional sleeping. There is also an outside deck which affords tremendous views and a 6 foot Softub jacuzzi with outdoor furniture. Views of the ocean and nearby islands abound. Milky Way Galaxy views come with no extra charge!

The home is fully wired for WiFi on all floors with two routers for a strong signal anywhere on the property.

All TV's have Time Warner Cable.

Only natural and organic cleaning supplies are used in the home. For rentals of more than one week, a housekeeper is available for an additional fee.

For children, there is a full cedar slide/swing set in the back yard. You will find the large and newly remodeled playground at the town elementary school along with the town swimming pool at the elementary school about 100 yards away..

Enjoy the cool evenings while rocking in one of the hand made rocking chairs on the front porch or in the backyard patio on the log swinging chair for two.

There is parking for two vehicles in the driveway and along with street parking for three more vehicles.

Keep in mind that the home is 4 floors and does not have an elevator.

***For 2017, the backyard will be a shared backyard, with tenants from the guest house and guest cottage. It may/may not have a pool and if so the cedar play set will not be available. The elementary school, 50 yards away has a full playground. You will still have a private front patio/BBQ area as will the other two cottages will still have their private patio areas..***

Thank you for your consideration.

Cheers,

Tim & Tammy Thomas

***Potential guests please note. Please review the entire listing including the 'Rate' section (and drop down menus) before asking to reserve and requesting a lease and then being 'surprised' by any fees that are listed in this description. The home does sleep 16+ people but there is an extra charge of $250/pp for parties above 12 that is stated in the rate section. Dogs are also welcomed but incur the same fee. The pool is across the street at the Elementary school and operated by The Neighborhood House and is not on the property. If attempting to reach me by phone, please try BOTH numbers as there are times when a voice mail on my cell doesn't reach me for a couple of days. Thanks and happy vacationing. Cheers.***

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Tim is a real estate broker with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services and Tammy is a ultrasonographer. We have 3 children and are blessed to live here year round.

Why the Owner Chose Northeast Harbor, Mount Desert, ME, USA:
Only 2 blocks from downtown Northeast Harbor yet on a quiet side road. The town library is 50 yards away. Also 2 blocks from the Post Office, grocery/liquor store and the Island Explorer bus stop. Bike rentals are also available next to the Post Office.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We call this architecture, Colorado meets Maine. We moved to Northeast Harbor from Colorado and many of the unique furnishings and interior finishes that adorn the home are from Colorado. It is a style we call rustic elegance.
