Historic Summer Cottage on Coast: 1867 Cow Palace

Located in: Stockton Springs
Perched on the Penobscot Bay, the Cow Palace was built in 1867, and is a fully restored 4,000 square foot summer cottage with 6 bedrooms/3 baths. The 2-acre property includes water and forest views from every window, a private, wooded path to the shore of the Penobscot (with open water views), and is adjacent to the walking trails and lighthouse of Fort Point State Park. Perfect for extended family vacation or group retreat!
The Cow Palace is authentic historic Maine charm with all the modern comforts and conveniences of a full restoration. We are located on a quiet, dead-end street just steps away from the Lighthouse. Enjoy the deep wrap-around porch with breathtaking views of the Penobscot Bay, the artist’s studio in the sunroom, and the beauty of the antique barn nestled against the deep Maine woods. The Cow Palace is on Cape Jellison, which is a rare and beautiful quiet spot on the Maine coast, yet is only 15 minutes from the progressive town of Belfast, which has New York Times-rated restaurants, a world-famous lobster pound, and theater and music. Only 35 minutes away are the renowned sailing towns of Castine and Camden; in just under an hour you are in Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Enter through the spacious boot-room, where you’ll find an array of lawn games such as of bocce and croquet, as well as beach toys. Enjoy a large kitchen with pink granite countertops and stainless appliances, including toaster, microwave, coffee-maker, and spices. The kitchen features original pass-through filled with antique fiesta-ware to the epic dining room, with a farmhouse table and dining for over 10. The library on the first floor has a fold-out queen sofa that could easily be a seventh bedroom, and includes an en-suite bathroom, and the spacious living room has two couches and a large, smart TV. There are six bedrooms on the top two floors: three kings, three queens (one bedroom with two queens), and one room with two twin beds; all have high quality new mattresses, luxurious cotton linens, and floor-to-ceiling windows. On each floor there is a large, full bathroom, with plenty of fluffy towels, storage, and a washer/dryer on the second floor. The deep wrap-around porch features outdoor seating for 12, plus two child-sized chairs. Walk five minutes to the historic Fort Point Lighthouse and take the trails in Fort Point State Park, which includes a beach, a pier, rich history, and picnicking in the woods. Explore our woods and pick wild raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. Meander down the short wooded path to a private sandy beach. Watch seals, dolphins and water-birds of all kinds while you comb the shore for shells, sea glass, or driftwood. Or just relax on a sun-warmed rock and look across the bay to sail boats going around Isleboro or watch clouds drift over the Camden Hills. Play croquet or bocce on the lawn. Ride your bicycle or take a run around the quiet seven-mile Cape Jellison road. Hike the trails on close-by Sears Island, the largest uninhabited island off the East Coast. Play golf at the Bucksport Golf Course. Enjoy fine dining and the little shops of nearby Belfast, Castine, or Camden. Visit neighboring Searsport and the fascinating Maine Maritime Museum, as well as the summer flea markets. Explore a wider area by driving an easy hour to Acadia National Park and the bustle of Bar Harbor. Then come home to the quiet of the Cow Palace, find some time alone in the library, curl up with a book in the cozy reading room, or socialize in the living room. Try your hand at drawing or painting in the glassed-in art studio overlooking the sea. Watch the sunset from the deep porch that winds around three sides of the house. Then see the moon rise and reflect in a silvery path across the water before you go upstairs to bed.
The iconic Cow Palace has been perched on a knoll overlooking the beautiful Penobscot Bay since it was built by a Bangor family as their summer cottage in 1867. And it has been beloved ever since, including by our own family. We are delighted to share our summer house!
