Artists' Victorian Home
Description of the Bucksport vacation home rental
This is a lovely 1880s, Victorian House with stately mouldings, old growth white pine floors, a curving staircase, front parlor room with a piano, a deck, an organic garden in the back(you can eat fresh salad, etc.),huge maple trees,and a lawn, making this here lot private and beautiful. We're opposite an old 19th century cemetery and an old,now defunct,brick seminary building. There's also a baseball field and playground just 200yds hundred yds behind our house. This is an artist's home. My wife and I are both painters and we have a live-in summer job out on an island nearby. This house is up on a hill two blocks from the main street of this quaint coastal town. Bucksport has a marina, a movie theater, restaurants and shops, 2 banks, a library, an ice cream parlor, a grocery store, and an amazing new cable stay bridge (Penobscot Narrows)that crosses the river to Fort Knox. We had four children and two dogs, living comfortably with us in this old house.
We are at the west end of Hancock county, at the mouth of the Penobscot River, and the head of Penobscot Bay, one hr drive to Acadia Nat. Park and Camden,a half hour to Bangor, Ellsworth, Belfast, and Castine. This is the place to be in the summer when it s too hot everywhere else. The cool ocean keeps the temperatures comfortable at night. Bucksport was the biggest town on the coast in the mid 1800s when the timber trade and shipping was at its peak. This town has a marina, a library, a 9 hole golf course(Maine's longest), a public swimming pool, ample nearby mountain trails to hike on, rivers and lakes to swim in, and nearby ocean beaches and bays.
