99 Lighthouse

Property Description:

The iconic and historic Keeper’s House is a spectacular oceanfront offering on the treasured island of Isle au Haut. Visiting this unique and incredibly beautiful property is like stepping into a postcard. The panoramic and incredibly beautiful views of Penobscot Bay, offshore islands and the distant Camden hills are framed by the beautiful, white-washed Victorian light keeper’s house, the magnificent Robinson Point light tower and bold granite outcroppings. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the main house offers a large kitchen with two gas ranges, granite countertops and incredible views. The dining room is accented by a charming kerosene chandelier and a large window overlooking the lighthouse. The home has 2 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms, all of them with incredible views. The property also includes a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom guest house called the Wood Shed, a large boathouse, a dock with float and two charming 1-bedroom sleeping cabins. The self-sufficient property is powered by photovoltaics and a generator. Drinking water is drawn from the sea through a sophisticated reverse osmosis system. Property is being offered turnkey with all furnishings and equipment. Operated for many years as a world-renowned inn, you now have the rare opportunity to make it yours as a private residence or once again as an inn. The recently-restored light tower is fully automated and is owned and maintained by the town. Isle au Haut is a breathtaking island in Penobscot Bay, accessible by private boat and year-round passenger ferry service from Stonington. Island amenities include a post office, a seasonal food truck and year-round food co-op. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy an abundance of hiking trails, secluded beaches and swims at glorious Long Pond. About half the island is part of Acadia National Park preserving its rugged beauty in perpetuity.
