Built in the Twilight of the Gilded Age

Tucked high on a hill above Penobscot Bay, Oak Hall sits on a 52 acre estate designed by Warren H. Manning. Built in 1913 for Chicago financier Ira M. Cobe, it is the largest Colonial Revival mansion in Maine. Built to last for generations, the house has been called home by five families. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.

Oak Hall is located in Bayside, a picturesque Victorian village nestled on the coast between Camden to the south and Belfast to the north. The house is a large three story structure, with collonaded porticos on each face, exquisite carved woodwork and plaster throughout, and large, light filled rooms. The house is a private residence but is open on select days for tours throughout the year.

The Oak Hall estate sits within a vast Acadian forest on land that was once part of the Waldo Patent — granted under authority of King Charles II in 1630.
