Half a mile from Blue Hill village, Captain's House is near restaurants, the beach, family-friendly activities & nightlife. You’ll love this house for the brand new fabrics, the post & beams, the sea captain objects d'art, the privacy of the yard, the comforts of home & neighboring towns & rural countryside that offer so much to do. Brand new, the house has three bedrooms, each with King, two of which are Masters, and there's a Full-bed on the landing outside the main master. 2.5 Bathrooms.

Le logement

When I have a house . . . as I sometime may . . .
It'll suit my fancy in every way.
I'll fill it with things that have caught my eye
In drifting from Iceland to Molokai.

This poem, Vagabond's House, by Don Blanding inspired my niece Christie Long to decorate her 2014-built, brand new, unlived-in house as an eclectic sea captain's house, and the kitchen is inspired by her love of cooking. Christie has been collecting shells for years, and she has put her shell collection in the glass coffee tables and lamps in the living room. The shapes of the hand-carved whales on the walls are inspired by several Atlantic sailing crossings. As they are mammals and live in the ocean, it makes them a fascinating creature. The collection of fabrics and textures are of interest to Christie's mother, Libby Nicholson, as she loves to sew. The paintings of the old ships are inspired by our family's yacht chartering business, which made its start in Antigua, West Indies at Nelson's Dockyard, where British Ships of the Line refitted during hurricane season in the 1790s. There's quite a pineapple theme going on at the Sea Captain's house.... In the olden days, pineapples were a symbol of welcome and friendship among sea captains from Maine to Bangkok, as sea merchants traded for pineapples to bring home. These pineapples have been a real inspiration to Christie over the years; her mother named her Bed and Breakfast in the Caribbean 'Pineapple House.'

Christie's Sea Captain's House in Blue Hill is two houses, connected by a breezeway. The idea behind the design is to live on one side and have a jewelry studio in the other. It is a wonderful house for two families, as each house offers a luxurious, downstairs living room and privacy. It's also a great house for two people, as there is only one bedroom, a master bedroom, above the main house.... For couples with small children, there is a landing with Full-sized bed located just outside of the master bedroom above the main house. Families can also sleep in the "second" house, where there are two bedrooms, a Master bedroom plus Guest King.... Sea Captain's house also works well for a family living with in-laws, or sisters living together....

The studio living room downstairs is still a project in the works... In other words, Christie and Libby haven't finished decorating it yet, but there is a lounge for guests to spread out in, a second living room with amazing, high definition, curved Smart TV, HBO and Tennis Channel, an ideal place for watching sports.

A wrap around deck circles the entire house, on which there are four entertaining areas. One faces west, the setting sun, and offers extraordinary sunsets. Another is near the kitchen and has a dining table and propane barbecue. Another has built in benches and coffee tables and adjoins the studio, great for parties. The fourth deck is located on the parking lot side of the building, a delightful place to sit in the cool of the shade under the roof during the summer. We plug our computers in there and enjoy the cool of the afternoon, while watching the joggers and dog walkers stroll by....

Sea Captain's house has a circular blue chip driveway with round about, covered front porch, and lots of luxurious begonia plants, hanging from the porch ceilings.

Built in 2014, Sea Captain's house has internet, Wifi, cable TV with HBO and Tennis Channel, a gas fireplace, radiant heated flooring in the basement and studio, forced air heat, water filtration system, washer and dryer, plus Yamaha sound system with radio and dock for iPhone or iPod. Keurig K-cup coffee maker, Juicer..skewers for the BBQ....kegerator....

Captain's House is not located on the ocean, nor does it have a view of the ocean, but it is located very close to the ocean. 300 yards from the house, there is a tidal, public launch area that doubles as a swimming beach, an ideal place from which to launch kayaks and to swim in clear waters. The approach to the Captain's House is pretty, as it's located just two houses beyond the Blue Hill Country Club, which has beautiful vistas of the ocean. Parker Point Road is a scenic drive that wraps around inner Blue Hill Bay. Neighbors have beautiful houses along it....

Long term, winter rentals are welcome. The house will be listed on AirBNB for the next couple of years.

I, Shelby Nicholson, manage the bookings and calendar for my niece, Christie, who lives out of town. Libby Nicholson is Christie's mother, who will welcome you to the property this summer. The privacy of the yard, the grandeur of the building, the interior appointments, beautiful Blue Hill....Guests will love this beautifully appointed, luxurious house and will be comfortable and happy during their stay there.

We enjoyed our time at Shelby's place very much. The house has LOTS of room and is very tastefully decorated. The home is in a beautiful woodsy setting, close to town, but far enough away to be very quiet and peaceful. An added bonus for us was that, while standing in the kitchen, we got to see several deer in an adjacent field our first day there, and several partridges (I think...but I'm no bird expert) the morning we were leaving. Pretty convenient location for day trips to Bar Harbor and Acadia.

Very beautiful house. A lot of efforts were put in designing this house. Everything was picture perfect. Clean to the fault. Fantastic kitchen. Acadia was majestic but this house was cherry on top. Thank you.

This is a beautiful home, in a quaint little town only an hour from Acadia National Park. It is clean and well stocked for enjoying meals in. It would be great for a family reunion and is large enough for those needing space. There are many books to read and places outside to relax with forest view. We were able to hike nearby for blueberries and went kayaking in Blue Hills. There is also a Coop with organics, shopping boutiques, galleries and antiques. My family loved everything about it!!
