Property description

Peaceful relaxation is the pace on Lower Goose. Experience simple island living with the pleasure and comfort of basic amenities. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean, the Atlantic seals, osprey and bald eagles. Lower Goose is a private island, with 166 acres and 10 private cottages.

Fabulous swimming from shore and from the private dock. Kayaks are included, for paddling around Lower Goose, nearby islands and ledges, to visit seals. Explore the island's shoreline for shells, sea glass and tidal treasures, and travel the woodland trails for flowers and fauna. Fishing, clamming and private lobstering excursions are available.

Breathtaking views from the front deck and yard provide constant pleasure. Enjoy cocktails on the pier and watch the boating activity at the Goslings anchorage.

The cottage offers a casual open layout. The main floor includes the kitchen, dining area, living room and sun porch, plus one bedroom with bunkbeds. The upstairs provides two full beds and three twin beds. The bath amenities include an indoor shower, a wonderful outdoor shower, and an ecofriendly toilet facility.

In addition to the main cottage, a small bunk house is available, should you need additional space, or perhaps a smaller space. Please contact us for more information regarding the bunk house, or additional island properties.

Lower Goose Island is an easy 20 minute commute from the Royal River anchorage in Yarmouth. Boat transportation is included to Lower Goose for your arrival and departure. Additional boating excursions may be arranged, to include trips to Eagle Island to visit Admiral Perry's home, Jewel Island to visit WWII lookout towers and bunkers, or trips to the main land for shopping, antiqueing, museums or historic sites.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: I grew up in Yarmouth, ME and on Casco Bay. My family started and still owns a boat yard on the Royal River in Yarmouth. My parents, brothers and I built a family cottage on Lower Goose Island in 1974.

Why the Owner Chose Lower Goose Island:
In 1985, I bought property on Lower Goose and built this cottage and bunk house with my own family. I have the good fortune and pleasure to enjoy nearly every weekend from early spring to late fall on Lower Goose. I have created several trails for walking and exploring the island. I truly enjoy my time on Lower Goose, whether I am relaxing, enjoying the summer sunshine or chipping brush and working in the woods. I have a lobster boat, with which I lobster in the summer and scallop in the winter. I look forward to my future retirement on Lower Goose Island.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Lower Goose is a slice of heaven. Close and convenient to the mainland, but far enough removed to let the day to day routine evaporate and relaxation to take over.
