Matinicus cottage description

This newly constructed seaside cottage is located on the very private west side of Matinicus Island. It has spectacular 180 degree ocean front views, beautiful sunsets and access to the shore with a great pebble beach. It was built to replicate a 1940s cottage and has a large front porch with comfortable Adirondack chairs, a hammock swing and lots of room for outside relaxation and ocean viewing. It will easily sleep 10-12 people and has plenty of space to share with extended family and friends. The cottage has a warm and cozy feel with hard wood floors, beamed ceilings and a propane stove fireplace. The main level has an inviting reading nook and a back room that doubles as a bedroom or den as well as a kitchen, dining area, laundry, full bath and deck with outdoor shower. The second floor has a full bath and four comfortable bedrooms including the master which overlooks the ocean to the west.

Matinicus is located 23 miles from Rockland, Maine in Penobscot Bay. The island is a wonderful place to get away from it all, a place for relaxation and exploration, hiking and biking. There are no paved roads and everything is within walking distance since the island is only one mile wide by two miles long. Matinicus is also a natural bird sanctuary with hiking trails through spruce forests that lead to the shore. The beautiful ocean vistas are astounding.

Matinicus has two beautiful public sand beaches that are wonderful for swimming and collecting shells. The island is a working fishing community, not a tourist island, although visitors are always welcome as long as they don't expect to be waited on. You can buy live lobster from the local fishermen and fresh baked bread and sweets from a resident baker. There is a small artisan's shop to visit and the island residents host a local crafts fair once a week during July and August.

Getting to the island is part of the adventure with George Tarkleson of Matinicus Excursions. He runs his boat taxi from Rockland to Matinicus almost every day during the summer.

Flying is also a great option with Penobscot Island Air out of Knox County Airport in Owls Head, Maine.

Both companies have web pages on the internet for more information.
