The result is an inviting space that is both an artistic showpiece and an exemplar of comfort and livability, a home that is rich in character, flooded with sunlight, and delightful to occupy. Located five minutes from Blue Hill village, the property offers a secluded and tranquil setting, with 2.73± acres of gardens, lawns, and open meadows, and approximately 225 feet of accessible deepwater shorefront.

Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six spent nine days here over the summer as a home base for daily trips to Acadia National Park. This review is long overdue. The house is just wonderful, and is just as pictured. Beautiful, open, light-filled spaces; comfortably contemporary décor, finishes, and furnishings; and everything you could want or need in terms of linens, kitchenware, and cooking supplies. There are two bedrooms downstairs; the master suite is upstairs; and there is an office also upstairs (accessible from the family room via a spiral staircase). For our visit, the office was fixed up as a fourth bedroom with two blow up mattresses, and was perfect for our younger kids. The photographs do not show it, but there is a moving glass partition that closes off and offers privacy to the master suite, although the partition can also be left open. The master bathroom is a massive enclave in and of itself, with its own beautiful views. Really, there's no place in the house that doesn't have beautiful views. The floor plan is very open - there are internal windows opening into one bedroom downstairs and also into the office. This just means that if people are sleeping in, the rest of the house needs to keep the noise down. The large, lofted living room has a massive and comfortable couch, and is a wonderful place for reading, relaxation, or a puzzle. There is no television in this space to spoil the tranquility - the tv is in the smaller family room downstairs for anyone needing that distraction. The property is absolutely beautiful, and there two kayaks that can be launched directly from the property. There are decks with comfortable chairs downstairs and up, and more chairs right down by the water's edge. The deck right off the kitchen has a grill. The house is an easy drive to town, and there is a large grocery store nearby for anything you could need. The owner Kay was an absolute pleasure to work with. We could not recommend the Blue Hill Modern more highly for anyone heading to Acadia or looking for relaxation and comfortable luxury on the coast of Maine. We are determined to return ourselves someday.

We had a wonderful week in Blue Hill! Kay and Paul set us up perfectly. Gorgeous property and open spaces. Spectacular views. House is very clean and well organized and comfortable. Kayaked with seals and hiked up Blue Hill mountain.The town is both sophisticated and friendly. Can't wait to come back!
