Don't hesitate to reach out with special requests, as the property hosts are dedicated to ensuring you have a relaxing and memorable, oceanside respite! The fully equipped kitchen, dining room, and open living room with a large fireplace all overlook the ocean, while the estate also features a beautiful library built in 1820 that holds many classic titles and books on the local flora and fauna. Pick up fresh produce from one of the organic farms surrounding the property and utilize the full commercial gas range, essential cooking utensils, and all the prep gear provided in the country kitchen to whip up a gourmet feast! When you need a break from hiking around the property or laying out on the beach, unwind by streaming family favorites on the flat-screen TV with a Roku device. Each bedroom comes individually appointed and furnished with your comfort in mind, and 6 rooms boast ocean views while 3 have meadow views. Enjoy a private bath from each room and a calming sea breeze throughout the whole home! Wake up and play a game of croquet on the lawn, take a nap among the flower gardens, or curl up with a good book by the fire. This estate also hosts a restored 1820s barn - once serving as the Oceanside Meadows Institute for the Arts and Sciences home base - that now exists as a concert/lecture hall with events throughout the year. Plan your next large family occasion to this unique venue today! -- THE LOCATION -- Throughout your authentic Maine vacation, hold picnics on the sandy beach just a short walk away, lay out under the sun, and take swims in the brisk Atlantic waters. Head out on walks along the rugged coastline, observe natural tidal pools and 4 historic lighthouses, spot an eagle or osprey overhead, or test the waters with kayaking, yachting, and freshwater canoeing. Several walking trails cross the private 200-acre property, while the wonderful 5000-acre section of Acadia National Park at Schoodic is just a 5-minute drive away. Enjoy hikes through the scenic nature preserve, learn about the area's history at the Schoodic Institute and Moore Auditorium, and visit Schoodic Point to end your day with breathtaking views. 'Sea Captain's Home' allows you to escape the tourist traps of Bar Harbor and other popular destinations, but you'll still be just a short drive from all the sites when you feel like a change of scenery. Take a break from home-cooking and treat yourself at nearby restaurants like Corea Wharf Gallery & Grill, The Pickled Wrinkle, Bunker's Wharf Restaurant, and Me and Ben's Dairy Creme for dessert! -- THE EVOLVE DIFFERENCE -- Evolve Vacation Rental wants your vacation experience to be everything you hoped for and exactly what you needed.
