A pleasant home, with lovely sunroom, gardens, and amenities for your stay. Visiting wildlife, paths on property. 5 minute drive to Acadia National Park's Schoodic Section. Galleries, artist studios, & Restaurants in the area. Beautifully uncrowded hiking trails nearby of varying degrees of difficulty, several music venues ongoing through out the summer, pristine lakes for that refreshing swim - and so much more .
What you find here is a lovely home nestled within gardens and surrounded by many forested acres. The location is less then a half mile from the light house you see in the photos section. The home is also a six minute walk (less than a tenth of a mile drive) to one of the few sand beaches in this area if a brisk swim in the Atlantic Ocean is your cup of tea. Of course, a mere 5 minute drive (less than 5 miles) brings you to Acadia National Park's Schoodic Point Section, a truly beautiful gem of nearly four thousand acres. Schoodic Section of Acadia National Park is a spectacular peninsula jutting out into the Atlantic. Bold rocky coast, several miles of hiking trails, and 8 miles of beautifully maintained bike trails in this part of Acadia for you to explore. Ideal for a picnic on the rocks at the shore, to a day of hiking if that is your pleasure.
If you find sleeping with full moon shining in the window or a view to the star filled sky on a moonless night, you may want to bring a blind fold. There are no curtains over your bed.

My home is yours for your stay. The full large living room, large sunroom, kitchen, your bedroom, open deck to the front, small screened in porch to the back shady side of the house, all grounds, gardens, with paths on this property, well marked trails nearby, miles of bike trails and hiking paths at the Schoodic Section of Acadia National Park, as well as many other choices for hikes on other Preserve Lands - for which there are links online. I have several suggestions printed out for you in the notebook here at the house for your convenience.
Do review the photos. Notice the huge barn/garage which is near the house. I access the studio space - farthest from the house - usually for less than 2 hours, once or twice a week. I enter the back door farthest from the house. I park toward the far left of all buildings. (Until this year, I stayed away totally.) I notify each time, which seems disruptive. I will mention this on your arrival (unless it is crazy late, then I might forget) to determine your wishes.
Atención a los huéspedes
Written information detailing area restaurants, artists, galleries, and the many outdoor adventure opportunities is available in a notebook which I have prepared for you.
I greet you upon your arrival to welcome you and answer any immediate questions. During your stay, I'm available by text or phone almost any time for further questions or if there should be an emergency.

The refrigerator and pantry will be stocked with fresh organic eggs from my neighbor's "happy chickens" along with a few other breakfast type items. There is a grocery store 5 miles away, ample staples in the cupboards, an organic farm, and a few restaurants nearby.
If you would like, I will arrive at your request and cook breakfast for you. Just let me know well in advance. Otherwise, I am available when you have questions with a simple text. :-)
Events, yes. Parties, no. This is a lovely space to hold an "event". Slightly more subtle and subdued than a "party". Thank you for understanding. Also, please be willing to place items into 3 categories (returnables, recycles, and food waste) before putting items in the trash. Much appreciated. Thanks! :-)
Pets MAY be allowed. Do mention pets during your reservation. Tell me kind, age, behavior. Your pet must be OK if you leave it alone for a few hours. Your pet also must be well trained, NOT (repeat - NOT) allowed on furniture, house friendly, socialized, and happy to do some excursions out with you. There are lots of trails for you and your leashed pet. Do carry poo bags.
If your pet may be unhappy here, do us both a favor and find a quality pet sitter at home. Thank you for your responsible decision. I love animals. But I love happy animals. :-)
For several reasons, I request no smoking anywhere on the property or in the house at any time.
Note: As stated elsewhere, this is not a place for children.
