Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Nepenthe Den is a newly renovated and spacious farmhouse with mountain and seasonal water views yet conveniently located in town and minutes from Acadia National Park. Nepenthe is furnished with more than what the average rental would have so guests can make it their "home away from home" and be as comfortable as possible while enjoying their time here.

Nepenthe has a fully stocked kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances including a refrigerator, 5 top burner gas range with a convection oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, espresso machine, Flavia single cup coffee machine, toaster oven, regular toaster, blender, 2 crock-pots, lobster pot and even a turkey pan! Seating for 5 at the bar in the kitchen allows you to enjoy your company while cooking or just enjoying a casual meal and glass of wine.

Also on the first floor off the kitchen is a small half bath and a enclosed washer/ dryer station.

The dinning room has a beautiful floor to ceiling brick fireplace, hardwood hickory floors, and a glass door providing access to the very expansive back deck. The dinning room table seats 6 but another table can easily be added to accommodate 4 additional guests or if you prefer separate seating for the kids!

The spacious living room is heartwarming with another floor to ceiling pink granite fireplace, hardwood floors and french doors facing Norwood Cove and also provides access to the back deck. It is stocked with games, puzzles and a SMART flat screen TV, DVD player and an Apple box. The perfect place to relax after a long day of exploring.

The guest bedrooms are provided with extra pillows and blankets but also fans for those hot summer nights we occasionally have!

The master bedroom is complete with a king size bed, ceiling fan, flat screen TV and a balcony overlooking the mountains, Norwood Cove and many mornings a magnificent sunrise. The master bath has a corner shower and also an extra deep claw foot bathtub and a 3' granite vanity with plenty of storage.

Outside there is a back deck for relaxing, dining and entertaining and a front porch to observe our small town life as we know it.

With Acadia National Park being the main attraction to the area there is an abundance of activities to keep one occupied almost endlessly. The miles of trails for hiking, carriage roads for biking, scenic drives and miles of shoreline to kayak or sail just can't be done in a week or even an entire summer. However if during your stay you do start to feel you've had your fill of the great outdoors, or are maybe just too sore to put one foot in front of the other, there are many other activities to choose from. World famous gardens such as the Azalea, Asticou and the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, which is a private garden but can be viewed when scheduled ahead of time, are all worth seeing. There is even a small but very quaint garden, The Charlotte Rhoades Park and Butterfly Garden, just a minutes walk from Nepenthe. Museums, art galleries, fine dining, fun boutiques with work from local artists, wildlife excursions and of course some incredibly fabulous spas to choose from! What would a vacation be without treating yourself to an amazing massage or facial! For the sea fairing lover kayaking to one of the outer islands and enjoying your own private picnic or savoring a sunset sail with one of the local companies in town is a must. If a quiet night is NOT what you had in mind many of the restaurants and bars provide live music and dancing as well.

Venturing off Island, Mount Desert Island that is, to explore some equally beautiful areas such as Baxter State Park which can be done in a day trip or a very long day trip if you plan on hiking the highest peak in Maine Mt. Katahdin! The Eastern most point in the United States, Lubec, and crossing over into New Brunswick and visiting Campobello Island is also only a day trip away.

Although there is never a shortage of sights and activities spring through fall most people don't know the area can be enjoyed year round. Cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing and even snowmobiling is allowed on most of the paved park roads. Checking with park headquarters is advised ahead of time but with proper planning a sunset trip up Cadillac via snowmobile, or snowshoeing if you’re into that, can be pretty amazing. Whatever your agenda may be or the time of year you are able to visit this is definitely a place putting at the top of your list and making it happen.
