About Danielle Woerner
You're right--we're not red squirrels. This fellow was caught on camera by one of our 2018 vacation guests who kindly shared some of his photos with us. (If you recall Rocky and Bullwinkle: yes, there are moose nearby too, though not right on our land.) We're a husband and wife, seasoned vacation rental owner-operators, who have provided accommodations at our charming cape house across the bay to satisfied vacationers since 2009*, and at this property beginning in 2014. Now we live in this beautiful area full-time. We began camping in Maine 20 years ago, working our way up the coast from York and Booth Bay till we discovered Acadia. In 2008, we bought a 3BR cape in Milbridge as a vacation home; renovated it; and fell in love with the beauty of the area, the community, and the neighborliness of DownEasters. (That property, VRBO 341321 -- titled All-Season Wonderland: Oceanfront Cape with spectacular views! -- is going on the market in 2021.) In 2014, when we acquired Fish Point, we moved from NY's mid-Hudson Valley to live here full-time, and to open a small music & arts center for the area. We're a musician (singer, voice teacher, with a Bard B.A. and a Songwriting Master's from Berklee), and a retired IBM IT professional. We have over 20 years of DIY home renovation under our belts, too.
Why Danielle Woerner chose Milbridge
We knew this home for over a decade before it became ours; it was built by a good friend in the area. This is an absolutely unique property, located so close to town, yet on a peaceful bayside road; 3.5 acres with its own oceanside nature preserve and a sand beach, so rare in Maine. In 2020 we built a gazebo, which we also share with guests! It truly is a paradise. One feels in touch with the infinite here, in the most intimate way. Sunrises, dramatic cloud patterns and sunsets spread across the horizon. During the day, the water views go all the way out to sea; and there is the wooded Point, and sand beach, right here on the property. Eagles, hawks and ospreys circle high above, gulls soar, songbirds chatter in the trees closer by. Wildlife includes foxes and bobcats as well as more familiar animals. To go outdoors on a clear night is to be surrounded by a bowl of stars, that become brighter and more numerous the longer you look. The 5,500 SF Cape Cod style house was built in 2002 as a dual-use facility: a private home, plus an attached, flexible, handicap-accessible apartment that's a completely independent living/rental unit. The house is conveniently close to the road for walking, biking, and winter access; while the broad field behind it has water views and the gazebo, and provides a scenic entry to the footbridge that leads to the serenity of the Point. We run a small local arts institute, and are especially happy to welcome artists of all stripes who want to get away for Creativity Retreats.
What makes this Estate unique
For vacationers, businesspeople and traveling medical personnel, this is a special opportunity. Also, for stays of 28+ nights, if connected to your job, education or relocation to the area, you can be exempted from State sales tax. Ask us about this first! - We welcome travel nurses and other essential medical personnel for their standard 13-week contract stays. - Traveling business professionals also enjoy our facility. - Artists and other creatives who want to get away for some real productivity are welcomed for Creativity Retreats of varying lengths. One special writers' retreat period is the whole month of November each year, when we offer special National Novel Writers' Month (NaNoWriMo) arrangements for participating writers, including optional support events. When we bought this property and were renovating the building, we installed sound barriers between our living/studio spaces and the apartment, to keep that unit a quiet space for guests. We're considerate about the scheduling of sound-producing activities. We provide all guests with a several-page list of our own favorite attractions, eateries, shops, etc., in advance. Their opening times, services, etc., are more variable than may be listed, due to the coronavirus, so always check with the establishment.
