This beautifully renovated 3 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath home is available for your Maine vacation. You can enjoy nearby destinations and attractions or relax in comfort on the deck with a small but lovely view of Blue Hill Bay.

The space
This house has its own travel history. It started out life on a nearby island. When that community was abandoned in the mid-19th century, the building was floated across the bay to its current location where it served as the office for a small mining company during the gold and silver boom of the 1870s and 1880s in this area. More than 100 years ago it was turned into a home.

Downstairs has a living room with propane "woodstove", Kitchen, dining room and bath (shower only).
Have coffee on the deck in the morning or a cool beverage in the afternoon and enjoy the view of Blue Hill Bay. Upstairs is a half bath and 3 bedrooms for up to 5 guests (queen, double and twin beds, should you feel like Goldilocks!). Two of the bedrooms (queen and twin) have a view of the water. Towels and bedding are provided, of course.
We like to think that everything is provided and ready for your stay but if you feel something is missing please let us know and we'll do our best to provide it.

The entire house has recently been completely renovated. It's a charming cottage waiting for you.

We don't own the waterfront so cannot provide access to the shore right at the house but there a number of public access points nearby in town.

Please note that this part of Maine is known as the rocky coast so sand beaches (as we know them south of here) are few and far between. There is a popular sandy beach and swimming area in another part of town and we're happy to provide directions.
