About the property

This quaint, former home of two generations of lobstermen, has been lovingly restored and renovated, while maintaining many of its unique original details such as, the original wood floors, hand made kitchen cabinets and exterior sliding barn door.

The views of the working harbor offer the opportunity to observe the local fishermen, setting out to sea in the morning, and returning at the end of the day to unload their catch at the Corea Co-op.

The home's three bedrooms are on the second floor and are charmingly decorated. There are two twin beds in one ,a double bed in another and a queen bed in the master. All linens, blankets, pillows and towels are provided. There is also a full bath (tub and shower) on this floor.

The first floor kitchen/dining and living area is open concept with beamed ceilings and a gas burning stove. The kitchen is well equipped and opens to the side deck, which has a view of the harbor. The rustic den, which is a converted barn with beamed cathedral ceilings, offers TV and DVD. The half bath is also on this floor, as is the laundry area.

Enjoy morning coffee and the glistening waters of the harbor and beyond from the deck. Picnic table, outdoor grill and charcoal available. There is plenty of yard space for lawn games or relaxing under the apple tree.

About Carol & Jack Stafford

We are retired restaurant owners and former U.S. Government employee. Originally from MA, we currently reside in RI. Years ago, a whimsical land purchase, from a newspaper listing, had made us Gouldsboro land owners and later, homeowners of "Apple Hill". Corea is a very special place to us, since we fell in love with the house and the community years ago. The whole family enjoys time there, especially our grand son, Charley, who said, at age 5 exclaimed, "Thank God for Maine".


Carol & Jack Stafford purchased this farmhouse in 1996

Why Carol & Jack Stafford chose Corea

While vacationing at a local B&B, we were enchanted by the beauty, history and people of the peninsula. We happened by Apple Hill, and it was love at first sight. One cannot help but to be in awe of the magnificent scenery of this area, and to be inspired to explore and experience the surrounding wonder and beauty of nature.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Relax on the property, or stroll/bike the perimeter of the harbor, which from the house, horseshoes left by the local beach, where you can sit on the rocks, or comb the beach for sea glass, unique shells and sea tossed stones. Continue past the beach to visit the the end of the road, where you can pick up lobsters, fresh off the boats (lobster pots at house} . Turning right from the house brings you to the wharfs that you see from the house. One of the wharfs, a 2 min. walk from the house, is where you'll find The Wharf Gallery and Galley, mentioned in an issue of Yankee Magazine as being 'The Best Lobster With a Sense of the Past' Classic. Their entire menu offerings are delicious, including made in Maine ice cream! This side will also take you to Cranberry Island Road, which opens up to picture post card scenery, with its breathtaking ocean views, crashing waves on the rocks and beckoning sand patches. Back up Corea Road are Chapter I, which features works by local artists and craftsmen and Chapter II, a book barn with a broad spectrum of used books for sale, which (lucky us!) was also written up in the same Yankee Magazine, "Best in New England".

Quaint cottage overlooking Corea harbor.

  • 5 of 5

Maine is my home but moved away years ago. The beauty that Maine holds never gets old. Love bringing friends to see the beauty and the awe of nature. Had a house full of friends and family with a good old fashioned lobster dinner, complete with corn on the cob and homemade Maine blueberry pie. The cottage had all that we needed to make the dinner happen. Plenty of room for the 10 of us to have our feast. Close to the things we wanted to see and local stores/farmers market. I would stay here again if the opportunity comes our way. No problems with the cottage, directions were clear and precise and afforded us the luxury of peace and quiet. Clean when we arrived, plenty of linens to go around. I know the local area so getting around was not hard but there was info provided for those that may never have been there before. Thank you for our much needed vacation.

A Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to Corea and our stay in the Apple Hill cottage so much! The house was perfect for our family of four (college and high school-aged daughters). Plenty of space to spread out, a comfortable spot to view the harbor, proximity to great walks, friendly town, a great launching spot for day trips all over the Schoodic Penninsula. We kayaked and road bikes, hiked and ate a lot of lobster. Carol was the perfect hostess: efficient, prompt, friendly and available. We can't wait to come back! thank you!

The location of the cottage helped us enjoy wonderful things outside of the typical tourist spots. We hiked Blueberry Hill for a great view and loved lunch on the pier a block from the house. Our hosts provided lots of little touches and information to make us very comfortable.

Great home base for Acadia

  • 5 of 5

Although this property is about 45 minutes from Acadia, it served as a great home base. We loved the quiet and calm after long days hiking. Being able to pack our lunches to take to the park was a big plus. It was also nice to have quiet family dinners at the house at night.

The house was super clean and suited our family well. It could have easily housed more than our four people.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay. We brought our dog along and she loved being able to play in the yard and take dips in the ocean. The town is charming with very friendly neighbors. I highly recommend this house for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

Explore our Schoodic Peninsula and its small fishing villages,wild coastline, spectacular vistas and unhurried pace! We're away from the tourist crowds but only a short drive from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor, Mt. Desert Island, the shops and galleries of Blue Hill, or historic sites such as F.D.R.'s home on Campobello Island. Located in the tranquil, Downeast lobster fishing village of Corea, overlooking one of the most picturesque harbors in Maine, islands and the open ocean places to sit and read, paint, just search the skies for a glimpse of a soaring eagle while watching the harbor from our deck. There are wild blueberries and blackberries to pick, if you're here when they're ripe. When hiking, you might come upon a hidden tidal bay and salt marshes which are terrific spots to bird watch.
