Blue Hill is a summer tourist destination. But you won't find streets and shops overcrowded with visitors. Instead you'll find friendly shop keepers willing to share their beloved community, what we do and how we live. Whether you're looking for that slower pace of life or adventure, it's your choice, you can have it all!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: It all started with mail order Christmas wreaths. We were looking for a property to run our seasonal business, Island Sea Wreath when this property, close to our home, became available in 2000. The property consisted of a main house and small guest cottage and was perfect for our seasonal business needs. We were lucky to find year round renters for both houses. Last spring we said goodbye to Sally, our renter and friend who had been at the Balsam Lane Cottage for almost 13 years. I went to work remodeling and decorating the now vacant cottage for summer renters. Much to my delight I uncovered my inner contractor/decorator! I picked paint colors, fabrics, antique furniture and other eclectic pieces to create a relaxing and uncluttered environment. I wanted to live there myself! The property is peaceful being located down a private road but only minutes from the village center. You'll enjoy the sunny deck all day long and may even spy a family of deer feasting under the old apple tree in the field.
