The John Peters Estate is a unique event venue located on 22 acres of pastoral fields in Downeast Maine. Looking toward the fresh-water swimming pool there are majestic views of Blue Hill Mountain. From the front porch, the expansive lawn rolls gently down to Blue Hill Harbor.

The Federal style home built in the 1800s is on the National Registry of Historic Places and will accommodate thirteen. Also on the grounds is the recently renovated Waterfield Cottage that will sleep seven. It can be rented with or without the main house. Completing the estate, the barn has two conference rooms and a prep area for caterers.

The John Peters Estate is perfect for a memorable Maine family vacation or reunion, Maine destination wedding, corporate event or conference. This is truly a unique offering—spectacular water and mountain views set on rolling fields—yet, within walking and viewing distance of the quaint and picturesque Blue Hill Village.

Activities at the John Peters Estate
Guests can enjoy a picnic on the magnificent waterfront, take a refreshing swim at the beach, use the shared tidal dock for their boat, launch kayaks in the cove, take a walk in the fields or just enjoy a great book on the sun porch.

Walk to the historic village of Blue Hill to enjoy antique shops and art galleries. Hike Blue Hill Mountain to see the spectacular view of the surrounding area and coastal waters.

At nearby Acadia National Park you can drive up Cadillac Mountain, the tallest mountain on the east coast, hike miles of trails, or bicycle the carriage roads. Take another scenic drive to the working waterfront town of Stonington, with a harbor full of lobster boats and views to some of the most beautiful islands in the world.
