The Settlers House is the oldest remaining home on Schoodic Point. The home has a warmth & serenity that is difficult to put into words. Except for all the modern conveniences it feels like my Great-Grandmothers house once felt.
The cape cod portion of the home is the oldest section. This style with its sturdy post and beam construction was very popular with the early settlers. During a more recent renovation almost three decades ago in which I added the dormer windows I found that the roof is actually put together with wooden pegs instead of nails. I also found fragments of newspapers used for insulation prior to the civil war. One piece had an ad for rewards for escaped runaway slaves. A date on another of the fragments was Thursday, March 21, 1839. The year 1765 is carved into one of the timbers under the living room walls. In all the Settlers House has been added too a few times but its simple beauty, charm and colonial aura remains and are inescapable.
Not only is Settlers House a great vacation home for couples and families. But with the king and queen bedrooms and bathrooms being at opposite ends of the home and with all of the bedrooms being apart from each other it is also the perfect getaway for two couples. And when you are ready to enjoy some beautiful scenery or exercise just get on your bike, walk or catch the bus on the park loop in front of the house. The ocean is a few hundred yards down the road in both directions, the park entrance about a mile, much less if you can fly and the ferry about a mile and a half.
