Welcome to our Amish-built cabin, completed in December 2016 (which explains the snowy views). The interior is entirely knotty pine (floors, walls and ceilings);there is a large screened porch. The house sits on 3 secluded acres, 250 feet from the road; a small stream runs through the property. Wild turkeys run through the backyard, and you can sometimes hear the loons on Leonard Lake. Ellsworth abounds in interesting restaurants and summer activities and is 20 minutes from Acadia National Park.
This is a unique modular cabin! Constructed in Pennsylvania in an Amish factory, it was delivered in 2 pieces and lowered by giant crane onto the full basement foundation. It has many charming features, such as the very wide farmhouse windowsills and the Danish wood stove. With a nod to resource conservation, the water heater is on-demand (endless hot water!), and the toilet is dual flush. There are 2 bedrooms and one bath; you will have the bedroom adjacent to the bath. There are ceiling fans throughout the house, and many outlets for charging your devices, especially in the guest bedroom.
You will have access to all parts of the house, except for the second bedroom and the basement. The kitchen, with gas stove, is available for your breakfast use, and you're welcome to keep a small amount of food in the refrigerator. You will have a designated cabinet shelf in the bathroom for your toiletries.
Interaction with guests
I'm a lifelong summer resident of this part of downeast Maine and can provide you with a wealth of information about hiking, swimming, lobster, and other Maine summer pleasures. I will be working during the day and may not be around, but I hope that guests will also be out enjoying all that this area offers.
Other things to note
The front of the driveway, along the road, is shared by 2 other households. The driveway is L-shaped, with the shorter portion connected to the road; this is where 2 trailers sit. The rest of the driveway, to the cabin, is some 200+ long. The view of the trailers is largely blocked by trees.
I have a one-year old golden retriever, Hazel, who is still quite a puppy!

I am a semi-retired cancer researcher now working as a freelance medical writer at home. My husband is a professor of environmental engineering. My interests: Classical music, photography, hiking, bicycling, reading, bird-watching, gardening, cooking, travel....Our house is filled with books and many eclectic touches: unusual musical instruments, our son's extensive insect collection from the Pacific, our daughter's art from Paraguay and S.Africa. We live in a lush, green suburb of Clemson, filled with giant ancient oaks--a great neighborhood for running.
