On the beaten path, Parker House is close to everything Down East! Get out and enjoy what Maine has to offer & stock up at great stores less than a mile away.

Жилье
Enjoying a cup of tea while sitting on a sofa in the parlor with its gilt-framed portraits, pianoforte, Chinese wallpaper and Persian carpet looking out a pair of French doors onto a columned portico, you may feel like a character in a Jane Austen novel - although Sarah Orne Jewett may be closer to the mark. ('Downton Abbey' is stretching it a bit, but the comparison has been made). We also have some of the same china used in Netflix's 'The Crown' which we make available to guests.

The house boasts an immaculate, sunny kitchen with painted bead-board, gleaming subway tile and lots of windows. The south-facing space was designed and stocked with cooks and coffee lovers in mind: ample work areas include a farmhouse sink and separate prep sink, making group meal preparation a pleasure. We've been delighted by positive feedback from friends and families who have enjoyed cooking meals together and are continually striving to make the experience even more satisfying for our tenants. Most recently, a top-quality copper wok and a seasoned French poissonnière have been added to the batterie de cuisine.

With interest growing in organic and local food, we're happy to inform you that Blue Hill is home to a first-rate Co-op, now in a location within walking distance from Parker House, also to growers selling fresh produce either onsite or at a weekly farmer's market at the local fairgrounds. (Our guests enjoy complimentary Co-op membership with a discount card attached to the key chain.)

The kitchen opens onto a forty-foot space composed of two of the house's original downstairs rooms: the former kitchen, now the dining area with its massive fireplace & beehive oven, original iron fittings and antique pewter on the mantel, and a living area with a large Hearthstone wood stove for gatherings on chilly August or September evenings. (All bedrooms have working fireplaces but the one in the dining room is currently decorative only).

Through a short passage next to the dining room fireplace is the Morning Room, a book-filled chamber with sofa bed, comfortable chairs and its own dining or study table perfect for sunlit breakfasts. With a half bath and direct access to the South Porch the Morning Room is essentially a self-contained suite, ideal for the early birds in the family.

The front hall leads to our formal front Parlor and up to the bedroom floor. All three upstairs bedrooms, like the Morning Room, are large enough to serve as bed-sits - great for those who want privacy - but convivial early risers will appreciate the separate east-facing sitting area from which the sun's rays can be seen hitting the summit of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia, the first place they touch the east coast. (We hope the tantalizing glimpse inspires you to drive over to take a closer look).

We're thrilled with all the new life summer tenants have breathed into Parker House, which began its third century in 2012. Blue Hill is a great town in a part of Maine justly famous for its natural beauty and cultural & recreational opportunities and, if we do say so ourselves, our house is kind of a landmark (it's on a well-traveled road) and we look forward to sharing it with more people who either already know Blue Hill or are experiencing the area for the first time.

Что доступно гостю
Guests have access to an entire house, three bedrooms plus a den/downstairs bedroom with en-suite half bath. There's an in-law apartment above the kitchen and dining room but you hardly notice it's there. Please be assured you do have the entire place to yourself. No interior spaces or entrances are shared.

One of the best things about staying at Parker House is our proximity to Barncastle, a popular pub and restaurant a short walk in the direction of town. We're proud of our connection to Barncastle's builders - founders of Blue Hill's summer colony - and are sure you'll appreciate the family-friendly atmosphere its new owners have created. Effie Hinckley Ober called Barncastle 'Ideal Lodge' after the Boston Ideal Opera Company which she owned and managed. Many of her relics reside at Parker House. If you are an American music history buff or are interested in the origins of New York City's Blue Hill Troupe, Parker House may be of special interest to you.

We're a short walk from the nearest restaurant / pub, under a mile from a good grocery store and a food Co-op. Ask us about canoe & kayak rentals. Our clear nights are famous for spectacular stellar displays so when it’s too dark to play badminton in the back yard you can get out the telescope!

Excited to begin my tenth season renting! Like you, I enjoy travel and the outdoors: hiking, sailing, cross-country skiing. I've been above the Arctic Circle in Norway, to North Africa and most major European cities in between. I visited Mexico City for the first time several years ago and was bowled over by the scale of the place and the incredible pre-Columbian artifacts in the Museo Nacional de Antropologia. I'm an architectural illustrator and 3D modeler and take classes in figural sculpture at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts in my spare time. You may be tempted to stay indoors with my library of architecture and gardening books but please don't - get out and enjoy Acadia and the Blue Hill Peninsula instead! My extended family has summered in Blue Hill since the early '80s. That's the early 1880s, five generations with a sixth rising. My immediate family began staying at then newly-remodeled Parker House in 1900, after several seasons renting a cottage from relatives on Parker Point. As with many old houses there have been ups and downs in the course of more than a century of continuous occupancy, but the curtain has risen on a new Parker House, again enjoying its role as a setting for gracious summer living and family memory-making. I am delighted to be able to share it with you!
