About Sue Pate
Joe and I love to share all that Maine has to offer...from woods to water... and all the history it has to tell. The River House is on the site of the ice storage barn of the Union Ice Company that operated in the late 1800s. Our home is next door to the River House. It served as the office and bunk house for the ice company. By purchasing the River House, we were able to bring together the original pieces Union Ice Company once again. We are proud to show this little piece of Maine history to the discerning public. Tucked in at the the bottom of a winding dirt road, you will experience the Maine history, landscape, wildlife and state of mind that we have always treasured. Won't you join us for a relaxing respite?
Sue Pate purchased this House in 2007
Why Sue Pate chose Orrington
The property is special... with its history and its future. Remnants of the old ice house remain to explore. Sit on shore and wonder what took place in the river during the Penobscot Expedition 250 years ago? Or imagine what it was like to travel from Boston to Bangor on the steamship "Bangor" 100 years ago. The Penobscot is again a working river, with Cianbro using the port of Brewer to launch its steel frame modules to destinations in Texas... and cruise ships calling the port of Bangor home for the summer season.
What makes this House unique
The tranquil setting offers many opportunities to enjoy nature... from bird watching to fishing to kayaking and more... You'll always want to keep your camera handy, as you never know when the bald eagles will swoop by or the sturgeon may breach. Schools of alewives make their way upriver and a seal may visit. See the kingfishers dart along the water gathering their meals. The deer and fox follow the deer trail through the property. The frogs will serenade you in the evening... and the owl may herald the news of his latest catch. The serene surroundings lend themselves to reading, writing, painting and just thinking.
