Situated on the pastoral side of MDI, this secluded home sets atop a high spruce meadow knoll with a breathtaking view of Western Mtn and within walking distance to the sea. Its the perfect retreat for families and nature lovers visiting Acadia Park.

Der Wohnraum

Situated on almost 12 acres, this diverse habitat of old meadows, apple trees, blueberry ground, cedar and spruce groves drew me right in. I've had a small garden business for years and hope to bring some of this land back to production in the future. Meantime, the location is superb. You'll feel nestled with Robbins Hill behind you on this private site, yet always, Western Mtn is before you and I'm reminded of a little Switzerland.
Within walking distance is Seal Cove Landing, a favorite place for kayaking, picnicking, and watching sunsets. Seal Cove Pond public boat launch is a walk to the bottom of the hill. Rent a canoe and paddle across to Park trails. Or on quiet days wander right here where osprey and eagles commonly feed by the outlet stream of the Pond or relax on a deck or hammock and watch the birds. Endless walking and running trails are either right out the door or a quick drive down the road, along with pristine fresh water swimming at Long Pond. The night sky is excellent here and can be seen moving throughout the night from the great room's high windows, Deer visit the apple trees and coyotes and owls can sometimes be heard. The previous owners very carefully created an oasis for wildlife, including a lovely pond where dragonflies breed.
When you're ready for adventure, culture, dining out or shopping, the surrounding area offers multitudes of opportunities. Bar Harbor is 30 min. away. Much less congested are Southwest Harbor (15 min)and Bass Harbor(10 min). with their array of take out and fine restaurants,bars, shops, galleries, libraries,massage, yoga, cruises, fishing trips, music and live theatre venues..golf.
This house is a great place for friends and family to gather with its spacious chalet style great room designed for wildlife watching and inside activities. The front room has a picture window for mtn watching, a large activity or dining table, card table, and full size sofa bed. Some of the central kitchen is open to common areas and outdoor vistas as well. A half bath is downstairs and a light and airy bath upstairs, with tub, shower, toilet,and vanity sink, newly remodeled. The lger master bedroom has a new queen size bed, lights for reading and mtn view. A second front bedroom is smaller with another queen bed, lights and mtn view. The third has 2 twin beds and a window to the great room and its skylight. All bedrooms have bureaus and ample closet space.
The cellar has a washer and dryer and there are clotheslines out back.
An open porch faces the mtn and a larger deck with gas grill and outdoor furniture faces south off the great room in the back.

Tho I will be working daily, I will return calls at least once a day, likely evenings, and be more than happy to answer questions about the house, activities, and services in the area. There will be information in the house as well. On Thurs. or Fridays, depending on weather, I may be maintaining gardens and lawns after 9 and before 5.
I also live on the property in the garage apt and can be available before 8 pm. I quietly leave very early, work, and am in bed early!

What a wonderful place to spend ten days in Maine! We've been to Mount Desert Island for 29 of the past 30 summers and have stayed in cottages all over the island, some of them on several successive vacations. Peg's place was top-notch: a beautiful, spacious and immaculately clean home with lovely grounds for bird-watching and outstanding vistas of Western Mountain. We will be returning next year!

We stayed at Peg's farmhouse for a week in August and had a wonderful time. The location is perfect for access to everything on the quiet, west side of MDI and the common space on the first floor is spacious, light and beautiful, easily accommodating our group of 8 for meals and relaxing. The surrounding grounds are lovely and the night sky was amazing! The sleeping space was not ideal for 4 adult couples however as the 4th bedroom in the basement is far from a bathroom and the bed wasn't functional when we were there. I'm sure Peg will do what she can to rectify the bed situation. She was very responsive to our questions and needs and gave us great suggestions re: nearby farms and seafood options.

Antwort von Peg:
Thanks for your feedback Eda. It made me review my bedroom descriptions which were written before I was offering the 4th option in the cellar (after a guest begged for additional private space.) I now have updated it with a clearer picture of that sleeping space. I usually ask larger groups if they have reviewed the bed situation as well as the one full bath when they book but apparently didn't in your case so I apologize. I did have the 2 twin beds in the third bedroom and would have been glad to repair or replace the bed if I had known! You folks were a pleasure to host and I'm glad the bedroom glitch didn't deter you from enjoying the place! Peg

Peg's place is a little piece of heaven tucked away on the quiet side of Acadia. My family and I were able to enjoy two weeks here and tried to take advantage of everything Spruce Knoll had to offer. From hikes out your back door to campfires under the brilliant sky, the possibilities are endless. This house is secluded enough so that you feel like you can relax and unwind; yet close enough to hiking, biking, fishing and many more outdoor activities. Some of our family's favorites were watching the hummingbirds at one of two dining room tables, enjoying the fresh flowers Peg used to decorate each room of the house, star gazing at the amazing night sky and watching our little ones explore the pond and grounds around them (especially the bells). This vacation brought our family even closer together as it forced us to look at all of the beauty we were surrounded by. We are extremely grateful to Peg for her hospitality and the lasting impression she and her home made on our lives.

Peg welcomed us when we arrived. She was friendly and had a fire going and fresh flowers. We liked the house even better than described. The area was rural and quiet and a beautiful country setting. We appreciated the use of her canoe and the kitchen was complete and the beds were comfortable. We loved it!

Peg is a wonderful host. We arrived late but she was there to greet us. We settled in easily. The next day she brought in flowers from her garden. They were beautiful (not surprising since she is a gardner!). She provided us with tips for ourselves and our children. She is a local and know the island intimately. She was also a kindred spirit and had gone to the Common Ground Fair the day before. The house itself is quiet and secluded. There is also a path to the ocean (though we didn't walk all the way there). The house is divided into two sections. There is a high ceilinged addition with a working fireplace and beautiful light. Attached is a SUNNY porch with a grill. The original house is less spectacular though clean and big. Peg has already updated the upstairs bathroom which is beautiful. She has done a great job!

If you're traveling to Mount Desert Island to eplore Acadia and and its beauty, yet want to be removed from the crowds in Bar Harbor then you will absolutely love this house! Peg made us feel welcome right from the start and provided us with not only tips and guides around the island but also with fresh flowers in every room. As far as amenities, the house has it all including a beautiful mountain view in the front as well as acres of beauty in the back. We had a great week staying on the "quiet side" of MDI but still made the most out of Acadia as well, not to mention the two best lobster coops on the island which are only 10 minutes from the house. Definitely recommend this house, you'll love it!

I have lived on Mount Desert Island for 30 years, and spent most of it working outdoors. I am happy to host people interested in exploring this incredible place!
