Ratings and Reviews

Vacation
by Melanie M. on Aug 04, 2019

We love NEH and this was a wonderful place to soak in the specialness of this beautiful harbor.


Northeast Harbor has the advantage of being quite close to Acadia National Park's Stanley Brook entrance, not to mention the appeal of the grand, historic summer cottage estates, some of which date to the turn of the century. Northeast Harbor offers high end shopping plus some dining opportunities and boasts an active library, community center, public tennis courts and golf course, and a premier marina.

Shell Heap South
Peabody Drive, Northeast Harbor
Shorefront, For Rent

Property Description:

CLICK ON THE MAIN PHOTO ABOVE TO SEE ADDITIONAL PHOTOS

Offering wonderful views of Northeast Harbor and shared use of a dock and lovely boat house with ping pong table, Shell Heap South is a shorefront treasure offering those who visit a grassy path to the only beach located inside the Harbor. At low tide, the soft rounded beach stones give way to huge sandy clam flats. Companion to a sister home known as Shell Heap North, the two homes are among Northeast Harbor's original residences. Each being unique, Shell Heap South offers its guests a historic feel without sacrificing modern day comforts and decor with a selection of art created and collected by multiple generations of family, and a dramatic living room open to the second story.

While perfect for guests who desire privacy and seclusion, Shell Heap South also offers a convenient location to those who wish to be within easy reach to Northeast Harbor's quaint village center via boat, bike, car, or two-mile walk. Guests who bring or rent a kayak or standup board are sure to find it fun to paddle to town or even further to explore the coastline. With an Island Explorer bus stop located just across from the top of the driveway, simpler transportation is also available. Board a free shuttle for the short trip into Northeast Harbor's village or stay on a bit longer to ride through the Park, over to Echo Lake, or into the villages of either Bar Harbor or Southwest Harbor. Those who prefer to venture out on foot will enjoy this home's location across from the Thuya Garden trailhead. Use this access point to meander through the famous gardens and lodge, hike to the top of a nearby mountain for outer island views, or take the beautiful walk to Jordan Pond House for tea and popovers with a free ride back on the Island Explorer. Upon request, they will drop you right back where you began at the Thuya Garden trailhead! And after an active day on the water or in the Park, the classic covered porch overlooking a flowering garden is the perfect place to settle in and enjoy the lovely shoreline views. Whether its with a morning coffee, over an outdoor meal, or during an evening gathering, you're sure to enjoy the field of wildflowers and harbor views, especially at sunset.

Walk-through Bedroom with Queen bed leads to shared Full Bath with combined tub and shower and to the Master Bedroom with King bed and small Single bed, perfect for restless sleepers or small children. Dutch-style door opens onto a small balcony, with exterior stairs leading to the front porch.

OUTDOOR SPACES: Covered front porch with wicker furnishings captures the afternoon sun.

EXTRAS: Shared use of dock at neighboring Cow Cove next door and shared use of laundry in Shell Heap North, next door. Ping pong table in boathouse on stone beach. Sorry, use of kayaks and rowing skiffs is not included in the rental of this house.
