Nice, sunny house with deck, yard and swimming pond. Located half mile up the hill from Blue Hill village and harbor. Easy place to relax and to use as a base for area activities. The house is attached to a barn and old farmhouse where the host family lives.

Acadia Park is about 1 hour 15 mins drive from here. There are nice trips closer by, including down to Stonington (Maine's biggest lobster port) on Deer Isle, and taking the mailboat out to Isle au Haut.

The space

Our backyard has a bit of a "farm in town" feel to it --- Cindy's garden, chickens, goat, the pond, plus a tractor or two parked in the grass. Neighborhood kids often show up to swim, so guests can expect to see the occasional figure running across the back lawn.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to wander around the vast (3 acres, hah) property.

Interaction with guests

We'll be glad to provide any information for guests' visit. We know the area pretty well and can offer plenty of ideas for area outings. Cindy and Richard live in the attached farmhouse, come and go during the day, and are often outside doing yard projects. Guests have a deck to enjoy a barbecue outdoors.

We loved the place and it exceeded all expectations. Richard and Cindy were terrific. It was an amazing two weeks and it was hard to say good bye. I would honestly say I could not have imagined anything better.

Another awesome trip to Betty's house! This is our 2nd year coming and hopefully won't be our last. The kids love the pond. The location is a perfect spring board for trips around Maine and Rich and Cindy are about as nice as you could imagine. 100% Recommended!

Our family of four had a great stay. The house was very comfortable with a lot of attention to details. The kids loved the pond, the kayaks and the whole garden. The area is beautiful, very good location for trips to Acadia. The hosts were wonderful and caring, beginning with a fridge full of fresh food when we arrived. We hope to return.

This was a great place to stay! Our kids loved having the extra space to run in the yard. We have rented several (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)'s over the years. This owner adds a lot of simple extras that are not generally included with other properties. The area is beautiful & the location is ideal. Our family loved exploring Deer aisle & Acadia. We would definitely return.
