Beckoning you, high on a hill, overlooking the sea, are two authentic, and sophisticatedly rustic, Maine coast cottages: Lone Pine Cottage and Crow’s Nest Cottage. These welcoming log style cottages radiate with vintage charm yet have comforts galore. They have comfy quilts, “Green” amenities, WiFi, comfortable living rooms with an easy-to-use gas fireplace, covered porches with old-fashioned porch rockers, full baths, full kitchens, clothes washers and driers, two bedrooms and beds to sleep up to 5 people.
Situated in naturally forested locations, they are within easy walking distance to the Ocean Swimming Beach below. From the vantage point of each porch you will see bald eagles soaring overhead, Pumpkin Island Lighthouse less than a mile across Eggemoggin Reach, and the islands of East Penobscot Bay.
If relaxation and peaceful surrounds, starry nights, scents of pine, and sounds of the breeze in the pines aren’t enough, these cottages are central to all the cultural attractions of the entire Blue Hill Peninsula. The wealth of attractions includes: The New Surry Theater, the Stonington Opera House, Kneisel Hall School of Music, and the numerous hiking trails of Blue Hill Heritage Trust, Maine Coast Heritage Trust as well as Holbrook Island Sanctuary. Woodenboat School is but a few miles away, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts a few more. There are interesting restaurants and lobster shacks nearby in Little Deer Isle, Brooksville, Blue Hill, Sedgwick, Castine and Ellsworth.
Lone Pine and Crow’s Nest Cottages are on land that has been in my family since 1767. I am a direct descendant (by marriage) to the original settlers and then innkeepers who opened their land grant farmhouse to guests on July 4th, 1889. My husband, Jim, and I ran his Oakland House family business until I sold it to our relatives in 2018. I retained much land and these two cottages from the sale. You will pass through the Oakland House property as you arrive to your destination on Oakland House Road.
