This home sits on a partially wooded acre of land near the end of a paved dead-end road, just a few steps from the edge of Frenchman Bay. From this central but tranquil location, you'll be only 20 miles north of the Hulls Cove Visitor Center at Acadia National Park, where you can hike, kayak, or ride bikes on historic carriage roads. The picturesque town of Bar Harbor is 24 miles south, offering wonderful restaurants and shops, and Schoodic Point is 33 miles southeast.
Even closer to home, you can soak in gorgeous views and kayak or canoe at dog-friendly Marlboro Beach (one mile west), picnic at Bloomfield Park (three miles west), and go wading with a view of Mount Desert Island at Lamoine Beach (five miles southwest). Lamoine State Park, a 55-acre expanse with a dock and boating access, is five miles southwest, and Ellsworth's grocery stores (including Wal-Mart), restaurants, and shops are 10 miles northwest.
