El espacio
Private swimming cove with campfire, (shared by guests staying in the nearby Bungalow) water view, mountain view, island view, pet-friendly.

This one-bedroom cottage, called "The Bungalhigh," is located on a family compound with comfortable Queen bed and ensuite bathroom with shower, plus kitchen, living room with view and wrap around deck.

The Bungalhigh is located close to another rental house, the Bungalow, so guests need to be know that renters in the Bungalow walk in front of the Bungalhigh to get to their cottage and share the yard, kayaks, cove, parking lot, barbecue, and telephone....

Deep water out front for mooring a yacht; a private mooring can be arranged with advance notice.

Two kayaks, a rowing dinghy, life jackets, Cable TV, Wifi internet, mosquito screens on all the windows, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable Queen-size bed. Fans. Wall-mounted, propane heater.

A 12 foot tide empties the cove out front for half the day.... Excellent swimming, but tide is important.

House is located well off the main for children and pets. The property offers an ideal situation for pets, and dogs are welcome.

The Queen Bed is pre-made for arrival with 100% cotton, white sheets....

Besides the Bungalow and Bungalhigh, there are two additional houses belonging to family on the property, which mostly sit empty.... Our cousins use their house in August; my sister Libby owns the two-story "studio" on the other side of the Bungalhigh....

Most houses in Blue Hill have kept their 1950s bathroom and kitchen fixtures. We have not modernized the Bungalhigh in keeping with the style of the other houses in town....

Our Welcome Kit contains pamphlets on things to do in the area, descriptions of the local restaurants, locations of nearby scenic walks, farms, and driving tours with addresses for GPS navigation to find them....

The nice thing about renting a house in Blue Hill as opposed to Stonington or Mount Dessert is that Blue Hill is located equidistant between both places, which are on opposite sides of us, yet Blue Hill is not congested with traffic or touristy like Mount Dessert. Nor it is far away from other towns in the area, as Stonington is. In Blue Hill you can just as easily visit Castine, Belfast, Rockland, and Stonington as you can Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Southwest Harbor, and even Lubec, places that offer charm that you do not want to miss. Blue Hill also offers activities that are not touristy, such as farms, granges, museums, trails, beaches, and back to the earth eateries.

The AirBNB link for the nearby Bungalow is as follows; we also manage the larger Captain's House half a mile away on Parker Point Road in Blue Hill; and we also have a few darling cottages for two located in a gorgeous area on the island in Antigua, West Indies for the winter months.

Acceso de los huéspedes
Guests have access to the swimming cove and the point to the left of the Bungalow (in front of Libby's two-story studio), where there is a bench on the point and several picnic tables, offering a nice place to think and to ponder.

Otros aspectos a destacar
The house key unlocks the bedroom door, not the front door.... The television in the bedroom has an odd quirk in that it can turns itself on following a power failure. Garden lights are on dusk to dawn timers....

Blue Hill, Maine, Estados Unidos

Blue Hill is a small, scenic, rural, downeast, coastal town, dominated by Blue Hill Mountain. Thanks to the Blue Hill Public Library and centrally-located village green, the town has a strong sense of community with many people who enjoy living here year round, because of the tranquil scenery, the beautiful farm houses, the lack of suburbia, zero traffic lights, and many ocean views. Beautiful farm houses with gardens dot the countryside. Many scenic vistas open to the ocean. The woods are spruce pine and Balsam trees. Occasionally you see sheep grazing in fields by the side of the road.

Yet hidden away among the Elm trees, there is much to do in Blue Hill and surrounding areas. I consider myself an expert on what to do here, where to go to find any activity. Please don't hesitate to ask me about any activity that might interest you. For instance, one guest asked recently about light houses in the area. I introduced them to the Stonington Mail Boat that offers narrated tours to all the lighthouses in the area. Another guest asked about fishing. I gave them the website for Eagle Mountain Guide Service, where individuals can join a group on a fully-equipped, 24' pontoon boat, whose guides know where the best salmon and trout and bass fishing lakes are. There are dozens more fishing trips available as well.

Our welcome kit is filled to the brim with things to do in the area from Bar Harbor to Rockland. We include Franklin D. Roosevelt's Campobello Island in New Brunswick, Canada, 90 miles up the coast....bring passports. And Andrew Wyeth's "The Olson House" where he painted 'Christina's World" in Cushing, Maine.....

Blue Hill is 45 minutes from Acadia National Park, a stunning place to rent bicycles, take boat trips, sign up for guided kayaking tours, climb mountains, and bicycle Rockefeller's blue-chipped carriage trails, which have no motorized traffic..... Acadia National Park offers sports and recreational activities such as narrated lobster boat talks, windjammer sails.... narrated lighthouse tours, not to mention hiking trails to tops of mountains with amazing coastal views of Blue Hill Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean. You can drive up Cadillac Mountain, tour Mt. Desert's scenic Loop Road, take horse and cart rides along John Rockefeller's blue-chipped carriage trials..... Acadia National Park offers all manner of fun activities for the whole family.

Blue Hill is 45 minutes from the scenic, coastal town of Stonington, which offers fine dining right on the water's edge and gorgeous sunsets. After dinner, take in a live show at the Opera House. Like Bar Harbor, Stonington has beautiful curb appeal - colorful paint, beautiful gardens, quaint wood buildings, granite steps.... If you are an art aficionado, Stonington has art gallery galores, lining its beautiful streets. Check out Jill Hoy's Art Gallery at 80 Main Street in particular. She paints Maine! Wow! Walk the commercial lobster pier; check out the clothing shops. Stonington is a wonderful day trip.

Blue Hill is also 45 minutes from Belfast and Camden, neighboring towns west of Blue Hill, quaint with retail stores, well worth visiting. Camden is famous for its music scene; Belfast for its environmental shops; check out The Green Store in particular.

If you are craving beauty and nature, we can set you on the path to the most beautiful spots, like windswept Curtis Cove, or Blue Hill Mountain, or Carter Preserve Nature Preserve, or the Reversing Falls, and so on....

Our Welcome Kit has addresses for your GPS to sightsee these towns, as well as tours and addresses for sports and recreation in the area, places to dine in Blue Hill, where to go to find nature, explore the trails, beaches, museums, and places of interest in Blue Hill, plus addresses of neighboring farms, where you can buy fresh raw milk, homemade yogurt, organic chicken meat, eggs, and u-pick strawberries and apples.

Buy a 50 pound bag of potatoes and onions to take home with you in the fall.

The Blue Hill Town Park is a great place to take young children. It has swings and seesaws and climbing gyms.... Our cousins said it was a God-send to have it located so near by, a place where they could take their young children....

The Blue Hill Town Park also hosts the Flash in the Pan Steel Band street dance most Monday evenings throughout the summer, a great place for young people to go to dance and to listen to the steel band.

Blue Hill has a summer stock theater company, the New Surry Theater, that puts on plays in the town hall throughout the year. It also has an intensive chamber music school, called Kneisel Hall, providing musicians and music lovers with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the chamber repertoire of over 100 years. They hold chamber music concerts throughout the summer, but one of the things Kneisel Hall musicians are known for is their children's concerts, which they hold at the Blue Hill Public Library throughout the summer.

For restaurants in the area, apart from Barncastle and Marlintinis, two restaurants that compete for the local drinking crowd, who come out en force at 5 pm responsibly, we recommend Arborvine, located right in the village. It serves Blue Hill's famous, locally-raised "Bagaduce River oysters" and locally grown salad, using greens from Eliot Coleman's Four Season Farm. The Four Season Farm in Brooksville is an example of sustainable living. Its green houses produce fresh organic vegetables all winter and summer, and it's open to the public. The fresh clear waters of the nearby Bagaduce River is the perfect place to raise oysters, which once thrived naturally in the cold rivers of Maine. Arborvine makes its own beer, Deep Water Brewing Company, and has a brew pub.

Another restaurant located close to town is the Farmhouse Inn, located at 578 Pleasant Street in Blue Hill. For health conscious patrons, this restaurant offers the least starch of all the menus in town. Fruits and vegetables and sea food is the name of the game.... It's rustic, charming, and not expensive.

We also recommend dining at the Brooklin Inn, whose fare is locally grown produce, fish and seafood. The restaurant is run by a modern day sea captain. He ran a windjammer in the West Indies back in the day.... They keep a fire going in the fireplace during fall and winter.

A great place to watch the sunset in the most romantic setting possible is the Cockatoo Portuguese Restaurant in Deer Isle. Take a comfortable seat on the deck overlooking Goose Cove. There's a reef out in the bay that the waves wash hear the lapping of the waves on the beach near by.... It's a half moon-shaped cove that resembles those in the Caribbean.... It's peaceful to sit on the deck, hear the surf, drink champagne, eat hearty seafood appetizers, and watch the sun go down....

For a lobster dinner, consider taking your meal outside around a centrally located campfire at the Boatyard Grill in Blue Hill, or on a pier overlooking the water and Acadia National Park halfway down Newburyneck Peninsula in Surry at Perry's Lobster Shack. The experience at Perry's is described as "off the radar." We also enjoy dining on the water at Bagaduce Lunch, a terrific, fried seafood place that my uncle justifiably calls 'the Yale Club," because it is so popular. Take your meal on the picnic tables and dine on the water's edge.

Blue Hill celebrates Memorial Day with a Parade. The Blue Hill Pops amass great singers and musicians to celebrate the Fourth of July. On Labor Day we go to the Blue Hill Fair, see the 4H animals, and watch fireworks.

Blue Hill has inspired many authors. E.B. White wrote Charlotte's Web, which is about the Blue Hill Fair. Robert McCloskey wrote Blueberries for Sal, which is about the bears on Blue Hill Mountain. Katharine Butler Hathaway wrote The Little Locksmith, a must-read memoir, in our cousins house in the village, and she is a distant relative.

Blue Hill has a few museums in the village... The Jonathan Fisher House is an 1814 historic house museum. Parson Jonathan Fisher was Blue Hill's first congregational minister from 1794 to 1837; he was also a farmer, scientist, mathematician, surveyor, and writer of prose and poetry... He bound his own books, made buttons and hats, designed and built furniture, painted sleighs, was a reporter for the local newspaper, helped found Bangor Theological Seminary, dug wells, built his own home and raised a large family.

The Historic Holt House, built in 1815, was lived in by Jeremiah Holt, grandson of Nicholas Holt, who brought Blue Hill’s fifth family from Andover, Massachusetts in 1765. Many of the houses in the village date from the 1800s. A drive out to Steamboat Wharf harks back to the days when the weekly packets sailed in from Boston with tourists and the mail.... Buckboards drove the tourists in to the village, where they'd stay at the Blue Hill Inn.

Our sightseeing tours, together with list of sports and recreational activities in Stonington and Acadia National Park can easily keep you occupied for an entire summer.....
