Swans Island house description

Cove-side Meadow House, Waterfront Views, Swans Island, Maine
Three bedroom, one bath, sleeps six-eight

This beautiful country home is located just steps away from a sandy beach in a quiet cove, perfect for young children, for swimming in warm weather, and for beach combing year round. Grassy fields surround the house, which has views of the ocean on two sides. Downstairs, there is a spacious and bright living/dining area with a fully equipped kitchen, wood stove, green house, and spectacular views of the ocean and meadows. Upstairs, there are three main bedrooms, two with double beds and one with single beds. On the third floor is another bedroom with a double bed. The first floor also features a large recreation room, perfect for children to play in, and the original workshop of Swans Island Blankets, a cottage industry founded by the owners of the house. All bedrooms offer views of the ocean. 25 acres of meadow, woods, a small pond, and pink granite shorefront invite leisurely afternoon strolls.

The house is fully insulated and will make a comfortable cool-weather retreat as well.

A small grocery store is just a five-minute’s walk away. Free wireless service is available at the town office, just fifteen-minute’s away by foot, or five minutes by car. The Island’s much loved Fine Sand Beach is a short distance away.

The island features sandy beaches, coves with smooth stones, spectacular hikes, fishing, and swimming in a local fresh water quarry. During summer months the town offers frequent “Town Breakfasts,” concerts, and other community events.

Another lovely house shares the property. Perfect to rent separately or jointly for larger groups. See it's listing under 'Peaceful Shoreline Cottage'VRBO #287807.

                    This is a beautiful and comfortable home. Our family felt truly privileged to spend two weeks in a house that was sited, designed, built, and furnished with tremendous attention to detail and artistry. Located within walking distance of trails, beaches, and even the one store on Swan's Island, the house met the needs of all members of our family. Among our favorite features were the well-equipped kitchen, the simplicity of the household furnishings, the antique kitchen table that expanded to accommodate many visitors, the comfortable chairs and good lighting that invited one to spend time with a book, and the outdoor charcoal grill. For anyone seeking a complete escape from hectic and commercial daily life, this is an ideal spot.

                    Recommended for: Families with teenagers, romantic getaway, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, adventure seekers.
