A rare find, "Lost Tides" is a fabulous, five bedroom oceanfront Victorian home nestled into 2 extremely private acres with 470 ft. of shorefront. (**There is a two bedroom cottage down the street that is available at an additional cost--please see VRBO # https://www.vrbo.com/661451 if interested)
Take in the stunning views of the Penobscot Bay from nearly every room while experiencing all the charm of a bygone era. Relax on the screened in porch with a glass of lemonade or a cocktail--free of bugs but full of fresh ocean air!--or take a stroll around the grounds and the original carriage house. If you're a runner, cruise down Shore Road, under a leafy cathedral, all the way to Route 1. Swim right off your own beach, search for sea glass, or just sit and enjoy the magnificent sunsets for which Maine is famous.
Tastefully updated, this home has the charm of a Grand Dame, but with all the modern amenities, including a new kitchen and 4.5 updated bathrooms. There is a dining room table for 12, a foosball table, a poker table, and a guest suite that is private and separate from the other four bedrooms. Perfect for family reunions, events, or those who need healthy space. There is also a media room with a very comfortable queen sized Murphy bed and it's own bathroom and kitchenette! There are 3 fireplaces and quaint wooden staircase down to the beach. Meticulously maintained, this gracious and magical waterside home is just a short walk to historic Bayside Village, a hidden spot that has no commercial development--not a stop light, stop sign, billboard, or store to be found! It is truly unique and feels like a trip back in time. There is a lovely old pier, where kids (and some brave adults) jump into the sparkling Penobscot Bay, plus a beautiful green park complete with an old-school playground. The charming and wonderful Northport Golf Club is a ten-minute WALK from the house or a two minute drive. Just grab your clubs and go!
Lost Tides is also a perfect place for weddings, with a large, flat lawn that can accommodate a tent. Get married under the tall oak and pine trees, looking out over the still water--an experience that will set the tone for your special day.
We've been coming to Bayside for three decades and will give you our best recommendations for restaurants, bars, hikes, shopping, and things to experience that are off the beaten tourist track. Belfast, a unique and authentic fishing town, is three miles away, with everything you could ever need--and some things you never even knew you wanted! The splendor of Acadia National Park is a 75 minute drive away, and Camden, a historic and charming tourist town is fifteen minutes to the south.
