This house accommodates 10 guests and is spacious and elegant in design. Located in a lightly developed area of the Maine coast, this house boasts quiet and privacy. Its shoreline is rocky and tranquil, and its bay frontage sees the occasional lobster boat hauling pots for their daily catch.
Dyer Bay is a scenic deep water hamlet with wonderful seascapes that is a must see. A woodland path directs guests to this house’s picturesque shorefront.
The interior of the Schooner Point House is wonderfully designed, as each room flows effortlessly into the next. The centerpiece of this house is its great-room, which features living and dining areas that open conveniently into a spacious kitchen and also on to a large waterside deck. A fireplace adorns the living room and is the focal point of this comfortable family gathering place.
Guests will also enjoy the ability to step from the great-room outside to tend their surf and turf grilling on the deck, and to breathe in the fresh salt air. The well appointed kitchen has plenty of counter space and comes complete with all cook-ware, lobster pot, microwave, dishwasher, and breakfast bar.
For the creative cook, try pairing some local lobsters or scallops with rib eye steaks from Ray's Meats and some fresh organic vegetables from Dyer Bay Farms, both of which are just up the road. If you need something that is not in season, there is a very well stocked grocery store five miles away that also includes a gourmet section.
To accompany your meal, try some award winning fruit wines or spirits from Bartlett Maine Estates Winery which is just a short drive away in Gouldsboro. When you don't feel like cooking for yourself, enjoy a special night out at Christopher's Restaurant at Eagle Hill, only a half mile away and treat yourself to some French-American fusion cuisine.
The master bedroom suite is also located on the first floor and also boasts a fireplace as well as a king size bed and attached large master bath with tub and shower. Guests waking up in this room can also step out onto the waterside deck and greet the day with their fresh cup of java.

The two water view upstairs bedrooms boast queen size beds and one has an additional twin bed - perfect for a child who likes to sleep close to mom and dad.
