This 1763 colonial in the midcoast village of Orland has been an inn with livery, a working farm, an antique shop, a B&B, a stop on the Underground Railroad, and a cozy home for more than a dozen generations of families who have carefully maintained the property and preserved its historic architectural features including 6 working fireplaces, one with a built-in baker's oven. During the current owner's half century tenure, a sunroom was added between the house and the adjacent barn, creating an attached garage with overhead storage. In 2003 a second barn was renovated as a year round guest house. Electrical, plumbing, and heating systems have all been upgraded.
The property is located on the road to Castine in Orland village, just a stone's throw from the Narramassic River. Orland is a quiet, residential town spread over fifty square miles with frontage on eight lakes and ponds as well as Penobscot Bay. A nearby 4,300 acre conserved forest is maintained for public enjoyment with miles or streams and trails. Less than a mile from this home, Bucksport offers shopping, theatre, golf, and a public marina with access to the world class sailing waters of Penobscot Bay. The gateway cities of Belfast, Ellsworth, and Bangor are all within a 20 mile radius. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are 45 minutes east.
