Standing watch over the spruce clad islands of Pleasant Bay and Ports Harbor, Poets Lodge is a magnificent property built on the point of a rugged granite promontory. Surrounded by 1600 acres of The Pleasant Bay Wildlife Management Area, Poets Lodge offers the type of beauty, privacy and peacefulness that sets this property apart from others. The compound includes a three-bedroom main house, three-bedroom guest house, four-bay carriage house with an additional two bedrooms, deep water dock and moorings. Exceptional craftsmanship can be seen throughout the residences, with cherry cabinets and beaded board paneling, a river boulder fireplace, and granite counters. Currently a primary residence, Poets Lodge could be a kingdom investment property or recreational retreat for a large extended family.

Poets Lodge was designed with the main living floor on the second level, with the living room, dining room and gourmet kitchen on this level taking advantage of the incredible, panoramic ocean views. The master suite is located on the third floor with its own sitting room and wonderful private balcony. A built-in office area, walk-in closet and full bath complete the master suite. At the first-floor formal entry, a large open foyer leads to a sunken sitting room with built-in cherry wood cabinets and boulder fireplace, two ensuite guest bedrooms, laundry, mud room, and powder room. A broad, sunny, seasonal glassed-in porch lines one side of the house overlooking the scenic fjord and bay. A passenger elevator provides easy access from the first to the second floor. Covered porches, open decks and granite terraces surround the residence, allowing for a variety of areas for entertaining or enjoying the views. Utilities are in the lower basement level.

The Carriage House has additional living space above an attractive entry foyer. The ground floor has a four-car heated garage and powder room, laundry and workshop areas. The second floor includes a large living area with propane stove, full kitchen, full bath and large bedroom with office space. A dumbwaiter between the ground floor and the second floor moves groceries, laundry and heavy items. The third floor includes two very large sleeping areas with powder room. The Carriage House also has decks off both the garage and second floor living areas, and a seasonal glassed porch on the second floor that overlooks Ports Harbor. A private pier with two deep water protected moorings is accessed by a boardwalk from the Carriage House.

The Guest Cottage, to the North of Poets Lodge, also enjoys year-round use and views to Pleasant Bay. It offers a casual living room and full kitchen, both of which overlook the Bay, and a glassed-in sunroom that can be opened with full screens. The first floor has a master bedroom with a full bath. Accessed by a spiral staircase the second floor has a sitting room, two bedrooms and a full bath.

This entire property is protected by a full-service automatic generator, and there are many handicap accessible features throughout the residences. Walking trails lace through the woods and meadows and lead to granite ledges and the shoreline of the coast. Eagles soaring overhead or perched in a nearby treetop, fox, deer and many other kinds of wildlife are often seen. Lobstermen plying the coast, soaring eagles and dramatic sunsets over Cadillac Mountain are common sights. Poets Lodge is definitely a property that must be seen to be appreciated.
