Looking for a sweet vacation place? 

View of the water, enough bedrooms for all the fam? 

We’ve got it. 

If you’ve got $19 million

Sure — Maine’s got plenty of more affordable options. But if you want Rockefeller-style vacationing … well, that can be done, too. 

In short, this is spectacular.

John D. Rockefeller III was the grandson of John D. Rockefeller prime, founder of Standard Oil and the turn-of-the-century version of Jeff Bezos. He bought the spread in the 1960s, leaving it to his son, David; after David’s death five months ago, the property came up for sale. 

What you’ll get for the $19 mil: 14.5 acres on Mount Desert Island, seven bedrooms, a number of gardens, a granite swimming pool, an orchard, and Rockefeller’s study, which is, itself, beautiful. 

And, quite possibly, some peace and quiet. And lobster rolls.
