Meadowpoint, and the Porcupine Islands. This tidal beach, reached by

We purchased the property in 2001 and started building the log house in 2003, after designing it and finding a builder. The house is a vacation - retirement house, with my main residence currently being Philadelphia. I'm a retired Social Worker/ Family Therapist, having been the founder and Executive Director of an international adoption agency for almost 30 years.
“I've been vacationing in Maine for years, having a sister who lives outside of Belfast, where I vacationed with my children until they were grown. After spending some summers renting, I always wanted to have a log home in the woods and started looking. When we first saw the land at Raccoon Cove, we were overwhelmed with the beauty and privacy of the 'Cove', yet close to Lamoine Beach, Ellsworth, and Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Through the years, the peace and serenity of the area, the beauty of the house, remain totally engaging and renewing.”

Our property is almost at the end of Lamoine Peninsula, 10 miles
downeast of Ellsworth, off of route 184. From the Lamoine Beach (5
minute walk)there are views of Mount Desert Island and Acadia Park.
Lamoine Beach is one of the few natural sand beaches in Maine. They
have picnic tables and barbecues, and a boat launch, kayak rental and
lessons. All along this
peninsula there are small coves and beaches for swimming with
dramatic views and very few people. Getting to Bar Harbor, through
back roads, eliminates the traffic crunch of route 3. Bar Harbor is
about 20 miles away. Trenton, the gateway to Acadia is only 8 miles
away. A network of private roads are perfect for hiking or biking.

“We love looking out the window walls at the changing panorama of the tidal beach. At sunrise, we get a tremendous colorful view, with the sun reflecting on the water. At sunset, the reflection from the west creates a mystical, muted scene. Even after 10 years, the house soothes with its beauty. It's fun to cook in the large kitchen and eat outdoors on the deck, or grill and eat on the deck looking out at the water.”
