The open breezeway of West Winds appears as you approach the house, framing a scenic view of Maine’s Penobscot Bay you’ll never forget. Here you’ll enjoy gracious living with modern amenities literally a stone’s throw from the beach. Experience spectacular sunsets over the water from essentially every room. Take a dip in the Atlantic, and if you get chilled, there’s a heated pool waiting. The beach is walkable for miles in each direction and varies from mostly sand to cobbles and boulders. Rest in the shaded breezeway, sunny deck, or spacious lawn. The soundscape is composed of waves, breeze, gulls and a periodic lobster trawler. Sleeping here may be the best of all possible worlds. On a summer night, cool breezes and crickets cast a magic spell.
In addition to the many amenities listed below, West Winds boasts a gated pool (key provided); all bedrooms (excluding room with the two twin beds) have TV; all rooms have Haiku fans operated by remote control; hairdryers in each bathroom; Nespresso coffee provided (also have regular coffee maker available); Bose Soundlink Bluetooth speaker downstairs; and Liberty wooden puzzles.
West Winds sits on 12+ acres. There is 72 feet from the deck to the shore with 260 feet of shoreline, but you can actually walk much further in either direction and it’s very secluded.
Enjoy nice walks beginning at the driveway which is 1/3 of a mile long and continue through the woods. The beach at low tide offers picturesque views in either direction.
Three miles away is the historic village of Castine, neighbor of Blue Hill, that has been under the flags of England, France, the Netherlands, and Spain through its 300+ year lifespan. Visitors can take day trips north to Ellsworth, Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park, and Deer Isle/Stonington or venture south to Belfast, Rockland, and Camden and many other charming Maine towns.
