A one-of-a-kind escape awaits at 'Lilac Cottage,' a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom vacation rental house in Penobscot. This historical home was built in 1790 using trees and stones found on the 5.3-acre property and is located near American Revolution battle sites. Though the home retains much of its original charm, all 7 guests in your group will have access to modern amenities including a flat-screen DirecTV. Return from a day of adventures and relax on the deck overlooking the water.
Master Bedroom: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Bedroom 3: Queen Bed | Living Room: Sleeper Sofa
Nestled between apple trees and the Bagaduce River, this picturesque property is the perfect place to slow down and reconnect with friends and family without having your phone in your hand 24/7.
Upon entering this 2-store abode, fans of historic architecture will immediately be drawn to the hand-hewn beams, exposed timbering, and original hardwood floors. One area of the floor has been left exposed, showcasing the 1790 construction method: lime, sand, and horsehair mixed with plaster between oak-riven pieces of wood.
Natural light illuminates the open and airy living room adorned with plush sofas. Light the massive wood-burning fireplace to heat both the upstairs and downstairs.
Outside is your coastal front deck with seating for 4 and incredible views of the water. Early risers will love this front row seat to cotton candy sunrises over the scenic shoreline.
Enjoy leisurely strolls around the 5.3 acres of verdant land, private to this property! Bring a metal detector and see if you can find Indian arrowheads or Revolutionary War ammunition down by the water.
As the group grows hungry, relocate to the well-equipped kitchen to prepare home-cooked cuisine. Savor your culinary creations at the 3-person kitchen nook or on the sofas in the living room for dinner and a movie on the flat-screen TV with DirecTV.
Retreat to one of the 3 boho-chic bedrooms for restful slumbers! Wake up to natural light and water views - both inviting you to enjoy another day in the great outdoors.
