Property description

Spectacular summer house on the Maine coast with 180 degree view of ocean. House has tremendous character and charm, with 6 bedrooms that sleep 10. Located on beautiful Orrs Island, 20 minutes from Brunswick, home of Bowdoin College, and half hour from Freeport, home of outlets and L.L. Bean. The house is located at the end of a gravel road ensuring quiet and privacy. Has large front deck with sweeping view of ocean and an awning for shade when needed. A grassy front lawn connects to a path down to the shore to take a dip in the ocean, launch the kayak, collect sea glass, climb on the rocks, or skip stones. Dining room is designed like the bridge of a ship with view of ocean. Stone fireplace in living room. A unique and very special property to rent.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1957

About the owner: I am vice president at the International Youth Foundation and live in Baltimore with my wife and two children. My grandfather bought this property in 1957 and it has 10 acres of fields and woods behind it and up the hill with additional spectacular views of the ocean.

Why the Owner Chose Orrs Island:
I inherited the house and land from my parents and it is where I and my children spent time every summer of our lives. It overlooks lobster buoys, sailboats passing by, the islands of Ram, Pond and Ragged, and then the open ocean. A grand house and truly a spectacular spot

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sitting on the porch and looking at the ocean. Swimming in the ocean. Exploring the surrounding area.
