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.
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.
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.
Just enjoy the place and appreciate it as we do. It's not fancy, just comfortable.
Who we are... Live in Blue Hill Maine, coastal town, (have a summer rental up here if you're ever interested), Richard works at local company that makes small UV water purifiers for campers, Cindy is family practice doc... Looking forward to just walking around the city. (and maybe a boat ride)
