Dreaming of a place to get away from the stresses of daily life? Us too. Check out this seven-bedroom, seven-bath waterfront home in Maine. The house sits on 4.75 acres that overlook the Great Harbor of Mount Desert and features eye-catching views of Acadia’s mountains, the Outer Islands, and the ocean.

Constructed in 1901, the 7,100-square-foot house was built in the Arts and Crafts style. Many original features remain, like the home’s exposed beams, built-in benches and reading nooks, and emphasis on natural materials like wood and stone. A glass-enclosed porch offers peaceful water views, and the home features multiple fireplaces that add coziness. Ready to pull up an Adirondack chair and stare at the water? 82 Common Lane is on the market now for $6,000,000.
