About the property

1 bedroom cabin cabin on shore of a salt water inlet in Blue Hill. .

Beautiful, rustic one bedroom cabin located in acres of woods on a lively tidal salt pond. Ten minutes from cultural Blue Hill with its offerings of music, theater, dining, brew pub and art galleries. Near Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and Deer Isle. Enjoy kayaking and swimming. Please sign the liability waiver if you use our kayaks. We have a swim dock with a ladder that has a ramp from the shore. The water was in the 70's this summer. Sunsets, abundant bird life and cool ocean breezes can be appreciated from the deck, outdoor shower, fire pit, or hammock . It is quiet and peaceful!

What makes this cabin unique

I think you will enjoy the water, the bird life and the quiet here. Blue Hill is popular in the summer for its vacation opportunities. Explore a National Park with hiking and biking. Take a ferry to Isle au Haut for the day.

My husband and I LOVED our stay at piney home. The tiny cottage was stocked with everything we could possibly need, it was immaculately clean, and we instantly felt at home. Tom was so kind and helpful. With such a quiet, peaceful environment we were able to relax and forget all about work and stress. You will love your time here!

It is a struggle to find just the right words to say how much we enjoyed this beautiful cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

Wish we could have known ahead of time just how delightful a stay this would be - IF we had known, we'd have tried to come for two weeks instead of just one. If total peace and quiet is NOT what you want; if being soooo very private and "away from it all" is NOT what you want - then don't come here. But.... IF those are the things you treasure in a Maine vacation getaway - then THIS is your ideal destination. Tom & Nancy are a very gracious host & hostess - and have prepared a cozy, well-equipped refuge from what's "normal" for so many of us. Everything we needed for meal prep and day-to-day vacation living was provided. Our evening campfires were pure joy. Where we live, we're used to "noise" - even at night. Here there is none. None! Our 1st night, it was almost unsettling for it to be so quiet. But 8/10 of a mile in on a dirt road in the Maine woods on a lovely salt water pond - that's how it is. During the day "the local entertainment" is the calling of a loon or two and the screeching of a pair of osprey circling overhead. The cottage is conveniently situated to allow short, delightful day-trips / side-trips to other nearby coastal communities in addition to Blue Hill itself - Deer Isle, Stonington, Castine, etc. And the L. L. Bean outlet store in Ellsworth is less than 30 minutes away! For us, the location was especially convenient since we brought a grand daughter with us to attend a class the very same week at the Wooden Boat school only 10 miles away.

Quaint lovely getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 5 days at Piney home. It was wonderful to look out at the pond. We only got to kayak 1 morning, but it was very nice. The cottage had everything we needed.

Serenely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic tiny cabin in a secluded area. If you want to get away from the hectic life stay here. It is still close enough to drive into blue hill for supplies and shopping. Surrounding points of interest are easy dives too. We drove up to Lubec and into Canada and back in one day; stopping at some historic and scenic places and also enjoying local food. If you love chocolate you must stop by Monica’s in Lubec. Thomas and Nancy are great hosts by providing a clean and well stocked cabin. Maine experienced an extreme heat wave while we were there and we had to learn the hard way the cabin windows slide open to the side to vent the heat of afternoon sun - as soon as the sun goes down it cools off quickly though. My favorites of staying were the views, seclusion and painting opportunities. My husbands favorites were the outdoor shower (which he used 2-3x a day) and the comfy chair in corner to read and relax in. This cabin is for those who don’t mind a few bugs, don’t mind living in a tiny space and are able to navigate the sloping terrain and dock stairs (which are newly built and solid). I would recommend this rental. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you Thomas and Nancy for sharing this piece of paradise.

Serene, beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The serenity of the cabin, its beauty and charm are simply divine. Sitting high on the rocks overlooking the salt pond is a sight forever etched in our minds. Sunsets every evening were stunning.

Tom and Nancy's thoughtfulness and generosity in providing a well-stocked cabin made us feel at home. The hummingbirds visited every morning. Two deer walked through the woods soon after we arrived.

We traveled to Acadia and drove to the harbors and to the beautiful small towns on Deer Isle. Visiting Castine, pottery shopping at Rackliffe, breakfast at Harbor House, meeting Flo are all treasured memories and then returning to the beautiful cabin to sit by the fire and watch those sunsets.

Thank you so very much for sharing your beloved cabin. We now have a blueprint for our dream cabin in the Pennsylvania mountains. Maine is forever etched on our hearts.
