  • Woods, Pond, Cottage and So Much More

    "My wife and I could not have picked a better place for our vacation in Blue Hill. Vicki and Howard made us feel most welcome on our arrival. Their cottage is nestled among the trees, but offers an open design with great natural light and a tranquil view of the pond. We enjoyed many hours at the cottage and on the pond -- a porch for reading and daydreaming, abundant bird life (including loons), comfortable swimming, pleasant paddling. The cottage is just minutes from the markets, restaurants and shops of Blue Hill as well as the fabulous chamber music performances at Kneisel Hall. Short drives took us to other beautiful ocean side towns, farmers' markets and the nearby parks including Holbrook Sanctuary."

  • A GRAND DOWAGER ....SHE PRESIDES OVER PENOBSCOT BAY....BEAUTIFUL

    "We drove along and then saw her this grand old house. She sat on a crest of green lawn with glorious views of the bay.The porch in back along the whole length and side was our first rest. The inside architectural accents were so appealing and the fireplace was provided with more than enough wood which we used every night. A big plus is that the beds were great...I have rented on VRBO and been once greatly disappointed but not at his house.The dining room is a grand room with wonderful lights all around from another year. The eyebrow latticed entry made you wonder about the men who built it...so talented. There were wonderful mementos of children and adults....shells all around...little rocks in the dining room drawer with names of probably all the adults and all the little ones to be used as place markers. The so comfortable leather chairs in the living room cushioned me each morning with a cup of coffee. I love Pee-G hydrangeas and big vase of them was on the coffee table. This is a house that has not been ruined by "updating"....the tubs are grand old tubs, the light switches are the old button type I love. The kitchen is so well stocked with stem ware, dishes and flatware....the old style sink was great. If you are so uptight that you must have a completely "modern" kitchen then think again. This one has every comfort.This is a great opportunity to live with a grand staircase, soaring ceilings, well done stepping stones to the bay below, a refrigerator from another era brought to this time by engineer skill. You might think you were of the privileged class just after the turn of the century. You will love this place. You will be privileged."

  • Our Stay

    "We had a wonderful time at the camp. LOVED the views, great deck, screened in porch, the water was perfect temps, clean (no mucky side), private, couldn't see the neighbors, perfect for kayaking, canoeing. Kitchen had everything, just need a bit more counter space, but don't we all. Would awaken to loons calling each morning. Would love to return. Cindy was wonderfully attentive to our emails and needs. Accessed canoe through the Activity Shop-recommend."

  • So welcoming in every way

    "We spent a week at NortherNest; my husband, our portuguese water dog and our two beagles! I'm not sure who enjoyed the 'nest' more; my husband and I, or the dogs! The moment we entered the 'nest', there were welcoming touches everywhere; from the water bowl adorned with dog biscuits, to the crisply made beds with lovely linens and bedcovers, to the freshly cut and arranged garden flowers throughout the house. Our stay was relaxing and peaceful beyond words. As some have already said, the pictures just don't fully account for the beautiful setting, the amazing beach, enclosed deck with access to the pup area, and proximity to Mt Desert Island and Acadia Nat'l Park. We explored all of the island and the park everyday. What a pleasure to have our beagles off leash enjoying time on the deck with us! We will definitely return!"
