Beckoning you, high on a hill, overlooking the sea, are two real Maine cottages: Lone Pine Cottage and Crow’s Nest Cottage. They were built from trees grown on site for guests who came generations ago, yet have been updated with amenities and comforts to please contemporary needs. These sophisticatedly rustic log style cottages radiate with vintage charm yet have comforts galore. They have comfy quilts, “Green” amenities, WiFi, living rooms with real wood burning fireplaces, covered porches with vintage rockers, full baths, full kitchens, two bedrooms and beds to sleep up to 6 people.
They are situated in naturally forested locations within easy walking access to the ocean swimming beach below. From the vantage point of each porch can be seen bald eagles soaring overhead and not far across the sea is Pumpkin Island Lighthouse, long a beacon for schooners and sailboats plying the waves of East Penobscot Bay.
If the relaxation and peaceful surrounds, starry nights, scents of pine, and sounds of the breeze in the pines aren’t enough, the cottages are central to all the cultural attractions of the entire Blue Hill Peninsula. A smattering of attractions are: The New Surry Theater, the Stonington Opera House, Kneisel Hall School of Music, and the hiking trails of Blue Hill Heritage Trust and Maine Coast Heritage Trust as well as Holbrook Island Sanctuary on Cape Rosier. Woodenboat School is but a few miles away, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts a few more. There are amazing restaurants and lobster shacks close by in Brooksville, Blue Hill, Sedgwick, Castine and Ellsworth.
These cottages are on land that has been in my family since 1767. I am a direct descendant (by marriage) to the original innkeepers who opened their land grant farmhouse to guests on July 4th, 1889. Their farmhouse was largely expanded upon at that time and is now called Oakland House. You will pass through the property of the Oakland House as you arrive.
