Welcome to Highpoint in Sorrento, Maine
a place where time slows down, traditions are made and memories last forever.
A gracious, 3-story, (6 bedroom, 4 bath) Victorian grande dame, situated prominently looking out over Sorrento Harbor and across Frenchman's Bay to the curving shapes of Cadillac Mountain and Acadia National Park. This generous, comfortable family summer house is beautifully furnished with antique wicker, summery stylish fabrics, fine antiques, brass beds, and a dining room table for 10 or more. Lovingly updated country kitchen with new appliances, Highpoint offers the best of old world style and today's amenities.
The century old Village Improvement Association, or VIA, offers a wide range of summer activities in July and August, from sailing, tennis, croquet, swimming, Camp Sorrento, to children's overnights, and golf at Blink Bonnie. This means that for such a lowkey, relaxed vacation spot, there are many things to do without leaving town. The Blink Bonnie Golf Course offers 9 holes of stunning beauty overlooking Treasure Island and Flanders Bay. A brand new croquet court and pavillion are one block up the hill from Highpoint and sociable, potluck dinners are held each week night in the Library community room across the street, where afterwards someone might show a film of their recent climbing of Mt. McKinely. If this is all too much activity, you can always just sit in the gazebo, or on a bench down by the water, and enjoy the peaceful beauty.
Highpoint Rooms and Details - see below for pictures and more details.
2nd floor / 3 Bedrooms:
Master bedroom overlooking the water, with ensuite bath. Right now the master has a full bed but we are planning on upgrading to a queen in 2012.
Middle bedroom, with double brass bed
Rear bedroom with 2 twin beds
These two bedrooms share a bathroom.
3nd floor / 3 Bedrooms / The Children's Floor:
3 bedrooms, each a single bed,. One bathroom (tub only, no shower)
When we upgrade the master to a queen om 2/12, we'd move the full bed to the third floor. So there would be two single bedrooms and one double bed room.
On the first floor is a small library with a very sleepable daybed (see picture below)
There is also, a large bathroom with a stall shower on the first floor.
A private place to catch up with a writing project or read a good book.
