Property description

Nestled among birch trees, 'Alpenhof' has all the amenities of town with a rural setting. This sun-filled cottage on a large lot in Northeast Harbor has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Hiking trails & Main Street are both a five minute walk from the house.

An Austrian chalet-styled cottage, 'Alpenhof' is surrounded by birch trees on a two-acre lot in the village of Northeast Harbor on Mount Desert Island, Maine. This sun-filled five bedroom four bathroom home is the rare private house located in town.

From the cottage, you can walk down the driveway and around the corner to watch boats come and go from Somes Sound, or look across the water to Southwest Harbor. The library and Main Street are a five minute walk. In 10 minutes, you can be on one of the numerous in-town trails that will connect you to MDI’s 120 mile network of hiking trails. Or sit on the deck, put your feet up, and let the sound of the trees and the smell of the ocean just melt your worries away.

With multiple seating areas, a deck, and a balcony, all of our guests can find their own space to while away a lazy summer afternoon.

On the first floor are two single bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. A front sitting room has TV/DVD/cable and an MP3-compatible stereo system. The fully-stocked kitchen also includes a washer/dryer. The large living room and dining room runs the width of the house and opens onto the deck. The deck has seating for at least eight and a large umbrella to shade you while you have lunch.

The second floor has a bedroom with two twin beds perfect for friends or siblings to whisper late into the night. It is connected to a second, smaller bedroom by a full bath with two sinks and a shower. The smaller bedroom has one queen bed.

The centerpiece of the second floor is the large master bedroom with king bed, desk, and seating area with sofa and chaise lounge. Windows on three sides flood the room with light. Two closets, one walk-in, and a full private bath are also included.
