Property description

Just minutes away from scenic Blue Hill, Gruesome Gables was built as a summer cottage in 1885. From the moment you walk up the wide steps you will feel the crisp air and whispering pines rejuvenate your spirit as you step back in time.

Gather friends and family around the huge dining room table, light some candles and throw on some Louis Armstrong. Linger over dinner, then repair to the porch, perhaps with a blanket to ward off the slight chill, then, reluctantly, fall asleep to the calls of loons on the bay.

Wake up and take a bike to explore the small winding roads, or kayak the coves and harbour. Bring your own boat and take advantage of a floating dock and mooring ball capable of holding a 50 foot sailboat. If it's foggy, get a copy of Robert McCloskey's 'Time of Wonder' from the Library, curl up with your children on a couch, and get a true sense of the place that has attracted families for generations.

Climb to the top of Blue Hill Mountain, take a day trip to Acadia National Park, steam lobsters, read a book, do a trip with the Maine Environmental Research Institute, visit the Wooden Boat School, explore the antique shops of Stonington and Deer Isle- there is as much or as little as a person could want to fill a day.

These will be memories you'll not soon forget.
