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!

Lovely, private, cottage in pristine setting
Piney Home was exactly as advertised — a sweet, little well-appointed cottage tucked into the pines along the edge of a lovely salt water pond. It was private and quiet, nicely maintained, and had all that we needed to make it a comfortable home away from home. The owners provided lots of little extras that we hadn’t anticipated, but that can help get a stay off to an easy start (eggs and milk in the fridge, bags of coffee and granola, spices and cooking oils, among others). The cottage is charming and tidy inside and out. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes, cookware, and utensils. The only thing we missed a little bit was not having a small microwave. But, there were many other nice touches in the cottage and out (binoculars, flashlights, hammock, kayaks, a floating dock). The owners were accessible and welcoming and, even though we didn’t actually meet, we knew they were available to help with anything we might need. We enjoyed our week at Piney Home very much and highly recommend it!
Thank you so much!
This cabin was definitely the highlight on our trip thru the NE. It‘s secluded in the woods directly on the shore which provides amazing sunsets. The cabin itself is so warm and comfortable with all the necessities you need. It’s just the perfect getaway!
Thank you for sharing you kind words and we hope you can return to Maine in the future.
What a wonderful cabin! Perfectly stocked with everything we could need and you couldn’t get any closer to the water. Spent every evening watching the sunset by the fireside. So close to Blue Hill for all of your shopping needs. Really can’t wait to return!
Quintessential Maine cabin! Cute, rustic and secluded.
We loved paddle boarding and kayaking on the Salt Pond, quick swims and venturing out for day hikes and then awesome dinners in Blue Hill. The Co-op has great fresh greens and vegetables and can you ever get enough lobster? This is the perfect rustic and romantic getaway!
Thank you we hope we see you again!
It is a struggle to find just the right words to say how much we enjoyed this beautiful cabin!!
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.
Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure for us having your family stay at Piney Home.
Quaint lovely getaway
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.
Coastal Maine in the summer is beautiful. Our town has restaurants, art galleries, a chamber music school, and live theatre. Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and Deer Isle are all less than an hour drive.
