Abraham Somes, the Founder of Somesville, would be pleased with the restoration his descendants have made on this historic home. Built in 1861 and completely renovated in 2003, this sweet cottage is perfect for your summer stay. Its furnishings are a thoughtful mix of antiques and new pieces, both comfortable and inviting. Floors and walls are a mix of old and new, too, helping to update this historic home while maintaining its charm and character.The cottage's central location on Mount Desert Island places all the area's local treasures within easy reach, too.
Front entry leads to a cozy kitchen with counter seating for two. Formal dining room with table that seats six comfortably. Living room. Laundry area off kitchen.
Bedroom with double bed and bedroom with twin beds on second floor. Full bath with shower

Originally attracted to this place because there were the right number of beds (traveled with our adult sons) and because we could book it for the dates we needed, which did not correspond directly to a "weekly, Saturday to Saturday" rental as the majority of properties in the area did.
