About Joe Anderson
We live on the coast of Maine with our 3 young children. I am a local pediatrician and enjoy sailing and playing soccer during my time off.
Joe Anderson purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Joe Anderson chose Northport
We bought the house and the land that it was built on in 2004. We lived here for 2 and a half years while we planned and built the house that we currently live in, 700 feet up the hill. We think that the Carriage House is a perfect spot to stay for anyone who is interested in seeing mid-coast Maine. We love the fact that the house is completely private: nestled in the side of a hill, surrounded by beautiful woods, and the Camden Hills and Penobscot Bay in the distance. When we travel, we also appreciate clean, well appointed facilities. We have done our best to make the accommodations in the Carriage House those that we would hope to find when traveling.
What makes this Cottage unique
Woodland tranquility is the best feature of the Carriage House, which is something that seems to be harder and harder to find. Sitting on one of the three decks enjoying a coffee, you might see turkeys wander by, or hear the cry of a loon from a nearby lake. We have even seen a moose in the yard! At the same time, it is within range of numerous fun activities like beach swimming and boating, windjammer cruises, good restaurants, Acadia National Park and many others. Come and see for yourself!

Midcoast Maine 2019
This property was as described, "Exquisite Carriage House in Beautiful Coastal Maine". My wife and I have been involved in an "affair" with this part of Maine for over 10 years. Every year we pick a different home to stay in. This was by far the most elegant and peaceful we have found. It is perfectly located between Camden and Belfast and offers privacy while you can easily get to Route 1 and begin your adventures each day. There is plenty to do in this area! We spent our last day on Islesboro, which is a great, quiet, Maine island. Don't miss the oportunity to check it out. Our host, Joe, was a congenial man who wanted us to be comfortable and happy. His home was the vehicle for this needed get away. When we left he asked me if I had any suggestions to improve our stay or his Carriage House. All I could say was, it seemed and was perfect for us. Thankyou for a quiet, private and comfortable refuge for our stay. Hope to return soon. Michael & Linda, New Hampshire.
Quite! Beautiful views! Everything you need!
Great location for us to stay, near family! Got to see the peak of the trees !
North woods retreat
We enjoyed the Carriage House for the month of Oct. and could have stayed longer. The cottage is tucked into the hillside with lovely natural landscaping. Each time we drove up the road from the highway, we felt that we were returning home. The inside of the cottage is sunny, tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. The upstairs kitchen and dining room have a great view. Our favorite activities were hiking, beachcombing, and prowling around Camden. We'd recommend this cottage to anyone who likes privacy and a natural setting.
Beautiful cottage nestled in a woodland setting in mid coast Maine.
My husband and I spent 2 1/2 months there and we had a wonderful time!
The house is very comfortable and nicely decorated. Located right in between Belfast and Camden, two quaint and amazingly beautiful towns.
Joe, the owner is very nice and accommodating. Always available when needed.
We had great weather, saw the leaves change color....and we also got to see some snow!
If you're looking for a place to stay while exploring the coast of Maine, this is definitely the place!
We'll go back to Northport one day, and hopefully the cottage will be available.
Thanks for everything Joe!
excellent house mid-coast Maine
House is private, in a quiet spot, nearly new inside, well-maintained, has great light, and was nicely appointed. Gas stove and decent cooking gear a real plus. Nice variety of decks & spaces. OK wireless. Great location for general mid-coast Maine activities. Near oodles of kayaking & hiking, not even counting the ocean. We are pretty low-maintenance so didn't ask much from owners, but they seemed very nice. Minor negatives: no dressers/bureaus for clothes in Master Bedroom. Bed not the greatest - too squishy & had troughs.
We had the perfect holiday and your lovely carriage house couldn't have suited us better. The house was clean, quiet, comfortable, and spacious. Also, it was a great value. The owners are lovely people and aim to please. We hope to return next year.
Near to the Islesboro Ferry in Lincolnville for day trips to Islesboro. Also near the Camden Hills State Park. To our north, in Searsport, antique enthusiasts can find popular open air markets. Camden boasts lots of activities for visitors including schooner trips, shopping, hiking, and lots of great restaurants. If you come in August, be sure not to miss the Lobster Festival in Rockland as well as the Maine Boats, Homes, and Harbor Show.
