ENCHANTING, COMFORTABLE, COZY CAPE

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Lamoine - The Henry House

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom On 80+ Acres Close To Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park

This charming, comfortable, classic cape in Lamoine was built around 1820. It is on a beautiful piece of property with over 80 acres of land, apple trees, blueberries, rhubarb, and some of the best drinking water in the world. You will enjoy the privacy this setting provides, yet the convenience of easy access.

Exposed hand-hewn beams in the dining room and master bedroom suite, and a built-in china hutch in the dining room add timeless charm and elegance. Recent renovations provide all the updated conveniences that will make your stay comfortable and easy.

A large yard provides lots of space for barbeques, games, and just relaxing in the sun. A basketball hoop in the driveway provides more fun, and blueberry fields (blueberries ripe for picking in July/August) provide the opportunity to eat one of Maine’s well-known fruits.

The first floor has a large mudroom, a lovely, light-filled modern kitchen, a large dining room, laundry room with washer/dryer, large bathroom with tub and shower, a warm and inviting living room with gas fireplace, and a bedroom with a full size bed.

The second floor has a large master bedroom with a king bed, its own bath with shower, a gas stove, and a lovely sitting area. Across the hall is a large bedroom with two twin beds and an alcove with two wicker chairs and a bookcase full of books. Large windows in both rooms brings the outdoors in, and views of Schoodic Mountain can take your breath away. Both upstairs bedrooms have air-conditioning.

This home has lots of natural light, fields, woods, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and is often visited by turkeys, deer, raccoons, porcupines, foxes, eagles, and moose.

Luxury linens, lush towels, beach towels, a well-equipped kitchen, games, books, outdoor games (croquet, basketball, badminton), all help to make you feel cozy and well cared for.

Far enough from everything to feel secluded and close enough to everything to thrive.

Mary Henry was raised in Lamoine, left for many years, and returned 20 years ago to visit her parents. While visiting, she met her husband David while out for a walk around the Shore Road in Lamoine. David was the pastor of Lamoine Baptist Church for 25 years. David and Mary have two teenage children.

Mary and David Henry purchased this farmhouse in 2003

This lovely home has been in our family for generations. We bought the house from Mary's father, renovated it, and lived there up until 2013 when we moved closer to Bangor. We love the land, the blueberries, the town, the people, and the proximity to everything else we love. It is where our family still gathers and makes memories.

The two gas fireplaces, even in the middle of summer, offer an ambience and warmth that is always soothing and inviting. Air conditioning in the master bedroom and twin bedroom upstairs offer relief from the humidity of summer, and makes sleeping an absolute pleasure. The hand-hewn beams speak of the effort that went into building this home in the early 1800's. Our home is surrounded by woods, fields, expansive lawn, apple trees, blueberry fields and the sound of peepers, and the call of eagles flying over head.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
We spent two weeks in this charming house with our two teenage children and had a very enjoyable time. The house itself is in a lovely location and is thoughtfully equipped by attentive owners. The house was very welcoming and spotless on arrival. We really appreciated the comfy beds and well-appointed bathrooms.

We found plenty to do in the area. Acadia National Park is a gem, offering many opportunities for outdoor pursuits. We loved the free buses (provided by L .L. Bean) which solved any parking problems and got us around Mount Desert Island very easily. Boat trips to the Cranberry Islands and whale-watching were highlights of the trip. The Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Fort Knox offered an unusual day out in the very pretty town of Bucksport. The nearby town of Ellsworth (5 miles) had all amenities and restaurants - very convenient. Nearby Bar Harbor is a busy town with plenty of night life and souvenir-shopping opportunities. We had perfect summer weather but would love to return in another season.

We would recommend this house as a comfortable base from which to explore this beautiful area.

Charm, comfort, and nature - - the quintessential Maine coastal experience

  • 5 out of 5
This nearly two century home with its exposed hand-hewn beams and gas fireplaces provided us with a perfect respite from the big city intensity. We saw eagles and a half-dozen deer stroll through the back yard just before dusk. It was awesome!
And if you are looking for the beach, you are minutes away from both Lamoine and Marlboro Beaches. And just across the bay you can explore beautiful and quaint Bar Harbor with its restaurants, shops and bars, and the beautiful Acadia National Park with its trails, beaches, and crashing surf.
If you are looking for a cottage and surroundings that give you the quintessential coastal Maine experience, this is it!

Perfect Location to Relax, Recharge!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family stayed at this wonderful home for a week in April, and had the most relaxing time. The location is close to all the attractions in the area, but yet off the beaten path and away from the traffic. Pristine Maine woods surround the cottage, giving it a very private feel. The setting is beautiful...lots of space to sit outside and plenty of room for children to play. The views from the upstairs master bedroom to the distant mountains is breathtaking! We enjoyed sitting by the gas fireplace and reading in the cozy sitting area in the master bedroom. The attention to the little details was amazing...jumbo luxury towels and toiletries in the bathrooms, cozy bedding on all the beds, and a fully equipped kitchen made us feel right at home. The town of Ellsworth is a short 10 minute drive and has everthing you could want - quaint downtown shopping and many wonderful restaurants. Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, and Mount Desert Island are only a short 15 minute drive away and very easy to get to from the house. While we were there, the weather was beautiful, and we were out and about every day. I would totally recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to rest and relax in a beautiful setting, yet be close enough for all that the area has to offer. We never wanted to leave, and will most certainly return next year! We strongly recommend this vacation home, and can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a great review. David and I are thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed your stay. You mention some excellent things to do while guests are in the area, and we appreciate that also. We hope you will stay with us again as we loved how clean you left the house, and we really enjoyed meeting you.

Star gazing, that is what you will do every night at this home in Lamoine. The night sky gives a breath-taking view of The Milky Way, Big and Little Dippers, and the millions of other stars that adorn the skies. Blueberries can be picked in late July and August, and fresh rhubarb can be picked May through June.

This home is situated on a beautiful piece of property located just 4 miles from Lamoine State Park, 5 miles from Lamoine Beach, 3 miles from Blunt’s Pond (fresh water swimming hole), 6 miles from Ellsworth, 2 miles from the Bar Harbor Golf Course (Trenton), 17 miles from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, and just 45 minutes from Bangor International Airport, Bangor Waterfront Concerts and the new Cross Insurance Center entertainment arena.

When exploring Acadia National Park don't overlook Schoodic Point where the waves crash with thunderous sounds and the ocean spray leaves salt on your face. Schoodic Mountain is rated as a difficult climb and offers a 360 degree view of the Acadia Region.

Going to Lamoine Beach or Lamoine State Park is a great Maine experience. When you think of Maine, lobster boats, islands and mountains, this is the place that highlights all you think of as being Maine. Both offer beautiful views of Bar Harbor, the Porcupine Islands, Cadillac Mountain and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Picnic tables and grills make it a great place to eat a meal or two.

Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are all close by and offer some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Afternoon tea at the Bar Harbor Inn, and evening coffee and dessert at the Blue Nose Inn are a must do. There are many activities for every age from walking Sand Beach to taking a sail on the four-masted schooner The Margaret Todd.

Just the peace and quiet will renew your spirit, so bring a good book, or read one of ours, play a game or take a nap.
