About Jeff Underwood
We have always wanted to have a place in Maine. A place to provide an escape and a place to appreciate and experience all that Maine has to offer. We are a fitness minded couple that enjoys experiencing nature, the outdoors and the many different activities that come with it. We cross country ski, snowshoe, hike, and kayak. Making trips to explore and experience the small towns and venues which are not heavily traveled is also a passion of ours. We are foodies - discovering small, out of the way places to eat and relax, a great way to experience new culinary delights. All of which we can do right from "Your Maine Retreat," either right out the door or within a short drive. We are excited to share "Your Maine Retreat" with others.
Jeff Underwood purchased this house in 2005
Why Jeff Underwood chose Sandy Point
"Your Maine Retreat" is centrally located providing easy access to many types of activities. It is within striking distance for day trips to Acadia National Park to the north , Camden to the south, and even the Freeport outlets (home of LL Bean), a bit further south. There are numerous outdoor activities throughout the area, from hikes of various difficulties, to many small Maine towns to explore. There is fishing and excellent birding available nearby. If you're a biker, you will find trips of various lengths and difficulties right from the house or nearby. Mountain biking is also available within the area. If you're adventurous, you can make a full day trip to the Baxter State Park region and explore "northern Maine" and its wildness. Yet, if you are looking to relax, you need to go no where. "Your Maine Retreat" is directly across the street from Sandy Point State Park, which offers the only beach on the Penobscot River. A great place to walk along the beach, explore the river shore, and/or hike the park paths through the surrounding woods. You could make a very short drive up the road and explore the Fort Knox State Park and view Maine from the Park's Penobscot Narrows Observatory (one of only two such observatories, in the world). On a clear day you may see Mt. Katahdin, to the north. If you prefer reading and quiet, then the solitude of "Your Maine Retreat" will offer the respite you are seeking. If you happen to be attending a wedding at French's Point, we are right down the street, within walking distance, if you wish.
What makes this house unique
"Your Maine Retreat" is truly unique. It is constructed of lumber and large timbers from old factories. Part of the decor includes three trees as part of the house structure and design. One being the large central focal point in the open first floor. There are two wooden drive wheels, which supported belt drives from old water driven factories, incorporated into two ceiling lights, along with an old street light, as the outside light, from Old Town, Maine. There are two antique sinks incorporated into the bath rooms. It is an eclectic Maine experience, unlike any others. If you like the outdoors and a natural setting you will find "Your Maine Retreat" relaxing and rewarding. All of this, while providing the needs for a comfortable, quiet visit.
