Boasting a gas fireplace, flat-screen TV, and natural views, the living room is the perfect place to rest your hiking legs. Channel your inner Bobby Flay in this home's spacious fully equipped kitchen. Whether your friends take their first bites at the dining table for 6 or in the sun-drenched sunroom, they're sure to be impressed by your 5-star cuisine. Need to get some work done? Head into the master bedroom and put your nose to the grindstone at the desk. As you make progress on your work, try not to be distracted by the breathtaking views visible through the floor to ceiling windows. No matter which bedroom you choose to call your sanctuary, you'll drift effortlessly to sleep under the exposed beam ceilings. Rinse off the day in home's large walk-in shower. Highlighted by a tile bench and 2 vessel sinks, the master bathroom is fit for royalty. Relax among the trees in your gloriously private 14-acre yard. Complete with an expansive deck, charcoal grill, and breathtaking views of the bay sunsets, the backyard will prove to be a centerpiece of your Maine getaway. -- THE LOCATION -- Lace up your hiking boots and head 15 minutes down the road to the Downeast Sunrise Trail. This 87-mile trail runs parallel to the coast providing frequent ocean views. In addition to the Atlantic, hikers also enjoy views of Schoodic Mountain, salmon streams, and dense forests of towering pines. If you can't get enough of the natural beauty of Maine, take a 37-minute drive to Acadia National Park and meander through the 47,000-acre wooded paradise. Schoodic Point, a branch of Acadia National Park, is located just 23 miles from the property and is another must-see for your group's outdoorsmen. Whether you choose to drive the peninsula's scenic 6-mile loop, camp, bike, or hike, Schoodic Point is sure to be like nothing you've ever seen. Don't feel like cooking? Grab breakfast at the Franklin Trading Post, a hotspot among locals! You can also take a short 15-minute drive down the road to Ellsworth and dine at the Riverside Cafe. Fine dining options await at Salt Box in Winter Harbor and Arborvine in Blue Hill. The Pickled Wrinkle in Birch Harbor offers mouth-watering burgers, fresh-caught seafood, and refreshing drinks! Of course, during your stay, you'll have to check out one of the many clam shacks and lobster pounds in the area! -- REST EASY WITH EVOLVE -- Evolve makes it easy to find and book properties you’ll never want to leave.
