Extra Photos


This unique waterfront property set on the Manset shoreline offers 172 feet +/- of prime ocean frontage.  The property consists of a modern 4 bedroom, 3 bath year-round cottage, The Boathouse, and an adjacent steel frame building simply called The Shop, which has a simple, second story apartment with ¾ bath.  Set at the mouth of the working harbor, the cottage and shop are situated to take in the expansive and dramatic views of pristine Acadia National Park and Somes Sound— the only fjord on the East Coast—as well as Greening, Bear, Sutton and the Cranberry Islands.  Further enhancing this special offering is a boat launching ramp and a deep water dock that stretches over 200 feet into the harbor.

The Boathouse Property Layout:

First Level: The tiled entryway with closet opens up to a spacious living and dining area with wood floors.  Four sets of sliding glass doors flood the rooms with light, giving access to the deck on two sides. They open up the panoramic view that looks over the dock and the Great Harbor to the entrance of Somes Sound and the mountains and islands beyond.  The well-equipped, tiled kitchen includes a bar sink and a double oven.  The laundry room/pantry is found directly off the kitchen.  Completing the downstairs level is a large master bedroom with built-in cabinetry and a private full bath with tiled floors.
Second Level: Two large bedrooms on the southern side of the home share a full bath with tub and shower. Recently renovated, the incredible master suite with its open living space features hardwood flooring and a vaulted ceiling. Designed to take in the incredible views from every vantage point, one may never wish to leave this serene spot. Lounge on the western-facing upper deck to take in a sunset, stretch out on the sofa or settle in with a good book in the panoramic sitting area, or literally soak in the views while you relax in the jetted soaking tub in the elegant bathroom. The bathroom also features a separate shower, granite countertops and a tiled floor.

The Shop Property Layout:

First and Second Levels:  This 60'x 126' steel and wood frame building has seen many uses, including boat storage and a boat rental business.  On the first level one finds open areas for work or storage, office spaces, and a half bath.   A sail loft and a simple, studio apartment with kitchenette and ¾ bath make up the smaller second level.  Here, however, the views are incredible, too!
