For a fabulous summer vacation . . . rent a landmark lighthouse and a spacious, historic waterfront residence. Within walking distance of the library, town dock, and sea memorial; steps from a very large wharf and Thurston’s Lobster Pound, which serves take-out seafood dinners. Personal inspection is available.
The lighthouse was featured in the motion picture Cider House Rules. The 2nd floor is a study with a futon and extensive miniature-lighthouse collection and memorabilia. Three books were written at the desk in the study, including one by the owner. The 3rd floor provides a seating area and a 360-degree picture-postcard view of working Bass Harbor, with 65 lobster boats, Cadillac Mountain, and Acadia National Park.
