Austin House is located in a small coastal village in Maine. The home was once an inn during the late 1800's - and has been completely renovated in 2010 and so is now like a new home but still retains the feel of past times.
Austin House is a cozy place to return to after a day of sightseeing or hiking. You may enjoy a sit on the porch in a rocking chair watching the tide rise and fall in the Pleasant River, relax in lawn chairs in the seclusion of the back lawn, or just have a relaxing soak in the clawfoot tub.
The house is only 2 miles from Hwy 1 providing quick access to sites east and west.

Blueberries: This area is known as the Blueberry capital of the world! The blueberry barrens are beautiful year round, turning blue in July when the berries are ready to harvest, and red in the fall. You will find blueberries everywhere for sale at this time and they are yummy! The Machias Wild Blueberry Festival takes place in August. And if you are here then, don't miss the Black Fly Ball - a dress-up dance party for all!

I am retired and spend my summer's in Maine working on our houses and gardens. I enjoy hiking, biking, and camping. My husband and I have enjoyed restoring our house in Addison and love sharing our house with our guests.
