The Penobscot Marine Museum in the town of Searsport (5 minutes by car) is one of the largest and important Marine Museums on the east coast. 220 Sea Captains came from Searsport.
There are also two very large Flea Markets in Searsport and a Treasure & Trash Barn with thousands of items from architectural to sea going to glass, jewelery and many other collectables. There are at least 8 restaurants within 10 minutes (some 5 minutes) of the cottage from Mexican to French to good old American cuisine ! Moose Point State Park is great for picnics and walking. It is on the ocean with woods trails as well.
Year Purchased: 1990
About the owner: Jim, the owner is a retired Real Estate executive and enjoys the Maine coast almost all year long. Came here on vacation in 1985 and fell in love with the area and eventually moved here permanently having used the cottage primarily for vacations. I worked on it year after year till it is now the magical cottage I envisioned when I bought it. Living only a few miles in a year round residence I am available on a moments notice should you need me. You will have my phone #'s and email address.
Why the Owner Chose Belfast, ME, USA:
Almost everyone who has stayed in this cottage wants to reserve it for the next year. It has been in a rental pool and I have not personally handled it until this year so there are no reviews but you can see last year's reviews of my home I rented while I stayed in the cottage. Not only is the cottage perfect for two or three guests but the area puts you in a half days drive to many interesting attractions in Maine. Many guests are content to stay in and around the cottage making use of the lovely property. You can walk along the ocean (I suggest tennis shoes) for miles and you can take a walk to Moose Point Park about 1/4 mile from the cottage. You can be as busy as you want or as reclusive as you want reading a book on the screened in porch or just watching the sail boats drifting by on a lovely sunny day. Even if it rains, the screened porch is roofed so you can still sit outside.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There is a 'romance' about Maine and especially along the mid-coast area and that romance is magically captured at Cottage 17 overlooking Penobscot Bay and the Ocean.
