Property Description

Enjoy beautiful views of Penobscot Bay, islands, and Camden Hills from the living room, porch, and beach of this well-loved waterfront cottage. Get lulled to sleep by the waves lapping the shore below, and waken to the sound of gulls and lobstermen hauling their traps.

The rustic cottage, built in 1928, is ideal for a family or two couples vacationing together. We are located at beautiful Blake’s Point, Cape Rosier, only a 20 minute drive to Blue Hill, where you can enjoy cultural events, gift shops, restaurants, hiking, and shopping.

Acadia National Park, on Mt. Desert, or the picturesque and historic town of Stonington make great day trips.

Or, simply relax on the porch, walk five minutes to Bakeman's Beach, read a book, kayak, pick blueberries and make a pie. Wade, swim, or hike or bike around Cape Rosier. Ideal for those who want to get away to read in solitude, work on a craft or art project, hike and beachcomb. It's Maine, the way life should be.

The centerpiece of the cottage is a beautiful hand-made chimney consisting of rocks personally collected by grandparents and family. The driftwood mounted on the walls date back to more than 50 years and evokes images of sea life and animals.

The kitchen, recently renovated, offers full features to include range/oven, dishwasher, full-sized refrigerator/freezer, microwave, and toaster oven. The large kitchen window affords spectacular views of Hog, Pond, and Western islands.

The cheery living room invites relaxation after a day of exploration or water fun.

Modern bathrooms, full supply of linens, and comfortable beds await the visitors. Washer and dryer are convenient and saves trips to laundromats.

The screened-in porch encourages vacationers to take in gorgeous sunsets, sounds of bird life, and passing sailboats. The swinging glider on the porch affords refreshing sleep in clear Maine air. A trundle bed on the porch provides extra sleeping capacity.

The cottage has been in the family for nearly 100 years and we want to share it with people who will give it the love that our family has given it over many years. It has tremendous sentimental value to us. We know you will enjoy your stay.

Enjoyed our stay very much.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Owner was extremely helpful with a special request. Although not everyone would like it, we loved that the location was quiet & private & far away from touristy part of Maine. This is a beautiful part of Maine to visit. A word to the wise: Google Maps was a necessity to navigate the confusingly numbered back r... Read More

Great summer cottage

A wonderful, beautiful, relaxing place to stay. Waking up to the fresh salt air and view of the islands is soul soothing. It's a quintessential Maine summer cottage. Owner was very gracious, helpful, and quick to respond with any questions.

A one of a kind stay at Penobscot Bay

The property has no review when we rented it, so it was gamble that I generally do not take when travelling with family. The gamble paid off, spectacularly. The property manager, Lynda was so helpful before and during our trip that everything went smoothly. Aside that, the location is incredible. Right by a rocky shore line where water recedes 100...

Perfect Cottage, Wonderful view

This is a lovely spot, above the water and rocks and with access to same via a pair of stairs. The cottage is just as it should be and features a screened in porch with a wide view of ocean, islands, and distant hills. The cottage is well supplied and provided a delightful stay.

Great quite getaway! Right on the ocean!

Rustic cabin with all the amenities! We had a great time just relaxing and watching a seal and some dolphins, quite and secluded. Enjoyed fresh lobsters from the neighborhood fisherman. Great place to unwind!
