Lush, verdant fields of native ferns surround the aptly named Bracken Cottage set amongst an old growth hardwood forest, preserving its' quiet setting on the banks of Penobscot Bay. With 1,710' of shorefront and 32 acres, Bracken Cottage presents the type of privacy that few properties can provide.Designed by Bernhard and Priestley, this attractive shingle cottage blends traditional architectural elements with the more current desires of country living; an homage to understated elegance. The owner fondly refers to it as ''a new house with an old soul''. The property is being offered fully furnished in an elegant country style, but always with an eye to an easy, comfortable ambiance.The year-round main residence has a large open living room, with French doors to the terrace outside, Douglas Fir beamed ceiling, long cushioned window seats and a wood burning fireplace. Stately beveled columns define bookshelves that frame the tall paned windows; several game tables and intimate reading nooks compliment the attractive setting. A cozy library adds an additional quiet retreat. The cook's kitchen has top of the line appliances, and opens to the dining area, flanked by a raised wood burning fireplace to enjoy during cooking and during meals.Over the two-car garage is a large, seasonal guest cottage, with full bath and efficiency kitchen; a propane fireplace adds a warming atmosphere. Many additional amenities abound throughout the property, including a sunny screened porch, full house generator, colorful perennial plantings, and woodland trails that meander throughout the tranquil forest and along the shoreline.

Melissa Marcello & Eric Sturm

When my husband got hired at the Jackson Laboratory, we were excited about moving to Maine, but also nervous about finding a house we loved in a community with good schools and amenities while in the midst of the pandemic.

We feel so fortunate to have found Midge, and have her in our corner. As a native Mainer, Midge really knows the area, is experienced, and will tell things like they are. She advised us well on many fronts (e.g., location, price, housing stock, schools, etc.) while helping to manage the many stressors that come with home buying.

Simply put, Midge makes the home buying process easier for those of us ‘from away’—we highly recommend working with her. And we love our new home on Newbury Neck in Surry!

Margaret Smith represented us in the summer of 2020 as our listing agent in the sale of our house in Deer Isle, Maine. Margaret's knowledge of every aspect of selling a property and how she guided us through some unusual issues which occurred along the way could only have been handled by an extremely experienced and thorough broker. Margaret kept us completely informed all through the process beginning with the listing contract to the conclusion of the sale. I spent 12 years as a Realtor in the Boston suburbs. Margaret is one one the finest and most ethical Realtors I have worked with.
