Elegant Historic House Close to Blue Hill Village and Barncastle

Located in: Blue Hill
Have you ever stayed at a wonderful old B&B or country inn and wished you & your family could have it all to yourselves? Now you can! We're pleased to offer historic Parker House in Blue Hill for the 2019 summer season.

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 might 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 here.

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, and 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, new for 2019. A book-filled chamber with sofa bed, comfortable chairs and its own dining or study table, it’s perfect for sunlit breakfasts. With a half bath and direct access to the South Porch dining area 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).

The parlor closet contains a variety of sporting equipment including a badminton or volleyball net and new this year a telescope with smart phone attachment and Bluetooth remote shutter. On clear nights the stars can be spectacular in our part of Maine.

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 proudly sharing it with more people who either already know Blue Hill or are experiencing the area for the first time.
