It'll suit my fancy in every way.

This poem, Vagabond's House, by Don Blanding inspired my niece Christie Long to decorate her 2014-built, deluxe house as an eclectic sea captain's house, and the kitchen is inspired by her love of cooking. Christie has been collecting shells for years, and she has put her shell collection in the glass coffee tables and lamps in the living room. The shapes of the hand-carved whales on the walls are inspired by several Atlantic sailing crossings. As they are mammals and live in the ocean, it makes them a fascinating creature. The collection of fabrics and textures are of interest to Christie's mother, Libby Nicholson, as she loves to sew. The paintings of the old ships are inspired by our family's yacht chartering business, which made its start in Antigua, West Indies at Nelson's Dockyard, where British Ships of the Line refitted during hurricane season in the 1790s. There's quite a pineapple theme going on at the Sea Captain's house.... In the olden days, pineapples were a symbol of welcome and friendship among sea captains from Maine to Bangkok, as sea merchants traded for pineapples to bring home. These pineapples have been a real inspiration to Christie over the years; her mother named her Bed and Breakfast in the Caribbean 'Pineapple House.'

Christie's Sea Captain's House in Blue Hill is two houses, connected by a breezeway. The idea behind the design is to live on one side and have a jewelry studio in the other. It is a wonderful house for two families, as each house offers a luxurious, downstairs living room and privacy. It's also a great house for two people, as there is only one bedroom, a master bedroom, above the main house.... For couples with small children, there is a landing with Full-sized bed located just outside of the master bedroom above the main house. Families can also sleep in the "second" house, where there are two bedrooms, a Master bedroom plus Guest King.... Sea Captain's house also works well for a family living with in-laws, or sisters living together....

The studio living room downstairs is still a project in the works... In other words, Christie and Libby haven't finished decorating it yet, but there is a lounge for guests to spread out in, a second living room with amazing, high definition, curved Smart TV, HBO and Tennis Channel, an ideal place for watching sports.

A wrap around deck circles the entire house, on which there are four entertaining areas. One faces west, the setting sun, and offers extraordinary sunsets. Another is near the kitchen and has a dining table and propane barbecue. Another has built in benches and coffee tables and adjoins the studio, great for parties. The fourth deck is located on the parking lot side of the building, a delightful place to sit in the cool of the shade under the roof during the summer. We plug our computers in there and enjoy the cool of the afternoon, while watching the joggers and dog walkers stroll by....

Sea Captain's house has a circular blue chip driveway with round about, covered front porch, and lots of luxurious begonia plants, hanging from the porch ceilings.

Built in 2014, Sea Captain's house has internet, Wifi, cable TV with HBO and Tennis Channel, a gas fireplace, radiant heated flooring in the basement and studio, forced air heat, water filtration system, washer and dryer, plus Yamaha sound system with radio and dock for iPhone or iPod. Keurig K-cup coffee maker, Juicer..skewers for the BBQ....kegerator....

Captain's House is not located on the ocean, nor does it have a view of the ocean, but it is located close to the ocean. 300 yards from the house, there is a tidal, public launch area that doubles as a swimming beach, an ideal place from which to launch kayaks and to swim in clear waters. The approach to the Captain's House is pretty, as it's located just two houses beyond the Blue Hill Country Club, which has beautiful vistas of the ocean. Parker Point Road is a scenic drive that wraps around inner Blue Hill Bay. Neighbors have beautiful houses along it....

Long term, winter rentals are welcome. The house will be listed on AirBNB for the next couple of years.

I, Shelby Nicholson, manage the bookings and calendar for my niece, Christie, who lives out of town. Libby Nicholson is Christie's mother, who will welcome you to the property this summer. The privacy of the yard, the grandeur of the building, the interior appointments, beautiful Blue Hill....Guests will love this beautifully appointed, luxurious house and will be comfortable and happy during their stay there.

Please note the base price of $450 is for four people. There is an additional cost of $50 pr person per night for additional people up to 8.

We manage the nearby Bungalow and Bungalhigh cottages as well on the water in Blue Hill, and Libby Nicholson manages some cute cottages for two in Antigua, West Indies, collectively known as The Pineeapple House as well; the links for all of them are here:

Elhelyezkedés

Blue Hill, Maine, Egyesült Államok

Blue Hill is a scenic, rural, down east, coastal town, dominated by Blue Hill Mountain. Thanks to the Blue Hill Public Library and centrally-located village green, the town has a strong sense of community with people who love living here, because of the tranquil scenery, the beautiful farm houses, the lack of suburbia, zero traffic lights, and many ocean views. Beautiful farm houses with gardens dot the countryside. Scenic vistas open to the ocean. The woods are spruce pine and Balsam trees. Occasionally you see sheep grazing in fields by the side of the road.

Yet hidden among the Elm trees of Blue Hill, there is alot to do in Blue Hill and surrounding areas. In a Welcome binder in the house are lists of places to visit from sporting activities to museums, to places to dine, to locations of beaches, to where to find nature.... I consider myself an expert on what to do here, where to go to find any activity. Please don't hesitate to ask me about any activity that might interest you. For instance, one guest asked recently about light houses in the area. I introduced them to the Stonington Mail Boat that offers narrated tours to all the lighthouses in the area. Another guest asked about fishing. I gave them the website for Eagle Mountain Guide Service, where individuals can join a group on a fully-equipped, 24' pontoon boat, whose guides know where the best salmon and trout and bass fishing lakes are. And there are dozens more activities also.

Our welcome kit is filled to the brim with things to do in the area from Bar Harbor to Rockland. We include Franklin D. Roosevelt's Campobello Island in New Brunswick, Canada, 90 miles up the coast....(bring passports). And Andrew Wyeth's "Olson House" where he painted 'Christina's World" in Cushing, Maine.....

Blue Hill is 45 minutes from Acadia National Park, a stunning place to rent bicycles, take boat trips, sign up for guided kayaking tours, climb mountains, and bicycle Rockefeller's blue-chipped, carriage trails, which have no motorized traffic..... Acadia National Park offers sports and recreational activities such as narrated lobster boat talks, windjammer sails.... narrated lighthouse tours, not to mention hiking trails to tops of mountains with amazing coastal views of Blue Hill Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean. You can drive up Cadillac Mountain, tour Mt. Desert's scenic Loop Road, take horse and cart rides along John Rockefeller's blue-chipped carriage trials..... Acadia National Park offers all manner of fun activities for the whole family.

Blue Hill is 45 minutes from the scenic, coastal town of Stonington, which offers fine dining right on the water's edge and gorgeous sunsets. After dinner, take in a live show at the Opera House. Like Bar Harbor, Stonington has beautiful curb appeal - colorful paint, beautiful gardens, quaint wood buildings, granite steps.... If you are an art aficionado, Stonington has art gallery after art gallery, lining its beautiful streets. Check out Jill Hoy's Art Gallery at 80 Main Street in particular. She paints a sunny and colorful Maine! Wow! Walk the commercial lobster pier; check out the clothing shops. A bustling lobster port, Stonington offers a wonderful day trip. And Stonington is where you pick up the narrated lighthouse and Puffin tours on the Mail Boat to Isle au haut (island), which is part of Acadia National Park....

Blue Hill is also 45 minutes from Belfast and Camden, neighboring towns west of Blue Hill, quaint with retail stores, walking paths, historical buildings. Camden is famous for its music scene; Belfast for its environmental shops; check out The Green Store in particular, and the movie theater. During winter we watch movies in buildings that are so home spun; it's like a time-warp!

If you are craving beauty and nature, our Welcome Kit gives directions and addresses (for GPS) to beautiful spots, like windswept Curtis Cove, famous Blue Hill Mountain, and peaceful Carter Preserve. The Reversing Falls is where the 12 foot tide squeezes through a narrow 50 foot opening into a large salt pond, where kayakers find sport.

Our Welcome Kit has addresses for your GPS to sight see these towns, as well as tours and addresses for sports and recreation in the area, places to dine in Blue Hill, where to go to find nature, explore the trails, beaches, museums, and places of interest in Blue Hill, plus addresses of neighboring farms, where you can buy fresh raw milk, homemade yogurt, organic chicken meat, eggs, and u-pick strawberries and apples. In the fall buy a 50 pound bag of potatoes and onions to take home with you....

The Blue Hill Town Park is a great place to take young children. It has swings and seesaws and climbing gyms.... Our cousins said it was a God-send to have it located so near by, a place where they could take their young children.... There's a swimming beach there (made famous by author Robert McCloskey in his children's book Time of Wonder), and granite markers that show north, east, south, and west...

The Blue Hill Town Park also hosts the Flash in the Pan Steel Band street dance most Monday evenings throughout the summer, a great place to dance with everybody (mostly young people) and to listen to the steel band in the street.

Blue Hill has a summer stock theater company, the New Surry Theater, that puts on plays in the town hall. It also has a chamber music school, Kneisel Hall, which provides musicians and music lovers with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the chamber repertoire of over 100 years. They hold chamber music concerts throughout the summer, but one of the things Kneisel Hall musicians are known for is their children's concerts, which they hold at the Blue Hill Public Library throughout the summer. They interpret the music for the children by playing bits and pieces of classical music, making them aware of the rhythem and texture and sound of each instrument.

For restaurants in the area, apart from Barncastle and Marlintinis, which are two restaurants that compete for the local drinking crowd that comes out en force at 5 pm, we recommend Arborvine, located right in the village. Albeit expensive, it serves Blue Hill's famous, locally-raised "Bagaduce River oysters" and locally grown salad, using greens from Eliot Coleman's Four Season Farm of Learning Channel fame. An example of sustainable living, the gardens at Four Season Farm in Brooksville are open to the public and are not to be missed. The fresh clear waters of the nearby Bagaduce River is the perfect place to raise oysters, which once thrived naturally in the fresh, cold rivers of Maine. Arborvine makes its own beer, Deep Water Brewing Company, and has a brew pub.

Another restaurant located close to town is the Farmhouse Inn, located at 578 Pleasant Street in Blue Hill. For health conscious patrons, this restaurant offers the least starch of all the menus in town. Fruits and vegetables and sea food is the name of the game.... Rustic, charming, and not expensive, Farmhouse Inn is all the rage this year.

We also recommend dining at the Brooklin Inn, whose fare is locally grown produce, fish and seafood.... Run by a modern day sea captain, a windjammer captain from the West Indies back in the day, they keep a fire going in the fireplace in winter, and it's a really fun, welcoming place to visit.

A great place to watch the sun set in the most romantic setting possible is the Cockatoo Portuguese Restaurant in Deer Isle. The bay resembles those you find in the Caribbean - perfectly half-moon shaped... Take a comfortable seat on the deck overlooking Goose Cove. A "reef" out in the bay swirls with sea water - you hear the waves lapping the beach near by.... It's peaceful to sit on the deck, hear the surf, drink champagne, eat hearty seafood appetizers, and watch the sun go down in the sun....

For a lobster dinner, consider taking your meal outside around a centrally located campfire at the Boatyard Grill in Blue Hill. Or on a pier overlooking the water and Acadia National Park in Surry at Perry's Lobster Shack. The experience at Perry's is described as "way off the radar!" We also enjoy dining on the water at Bagaduce Lunch, a fried seafood place that my uncle justifiably calls 'the Yale Club;" it is so popular! Take your meal on picnic tables right by the water's edge.

Blue Hill celebrates Memorial Day with a Parade; the Fourth of July with the Blue Hill Pops. On Labor Day we go to the Blue Hill Fair!

Blue Hill has inspired many authors. E.B. White wrote Charlotte's Web, which is about the Blue Hill Fair. Robert McCloskey wrote Blueberries for Sal, which is about Blue Hill Mountain. Katharine Butler Hathaway, a relative, wrote The Little Locksmith, a must-read memoir, in our cousins house in the village.

Blue Hill has a few museums right in the village... The Jonathan Fisher House is an 1814 historic house museum. Parson Jonathan Fisher was Blue Hill's first congregational minister from 1794 to 1837; he was also a farmer, scientist, mathematician, surveyor, and writer of prose and poetry... He bound his own books, made buttons and hats, designed and built furniture, painted sleighs, was a reporter for the local newspaper, helped found Bangor Theological Seminary, dug wells, built his own home and raised a large family.

The Historic Holt House, built in 1815, was lived in by Jeremiah Holt, grandson of Nicholas Holt, who brought Blue Hill’s fifth family from Andover, Massachusetts in 1765. Many of the houses in the village date from the 1800s. A drive out to Steamboat Wharf harks back to the days when weekly packets sailed in from Boston with tourists and the mail....

Our sightseeing tours, together with lists of sports and recreational activities in Stonington and Acadia National Park can keep you occupied for an entire summer..... We are, in fact, interested in winter rentals...

The best thing about Blue Hill is there is no traffic and no suburbia. Just farmhouses and trees, and ocean, decompress from the fast pace of city life and join us this summer in beautiful, rural Blue Hill, Maine.
