Cliff Island house description

Enjoy a piece of Cliff Island history by staying at Grey Ledge Cottage (formerly known as the Thompson House). Rolling surf, lobster boats, and a bell buoy are the tranquil sounds that you can expect to hear each morning while vacationing at Grey Ledge Cottage. Relax in one of the porch rockers and sip your morning coffee while enjoying the beautiful views. Grey Ledge Cottage was first built in 1890, with many additions and improvements through the years, the cottage has kept its old cottage style and feel. The interior features include a full kitchen with lobster pots, a beautiful stone fireplace with wood-burning stove, a cottage book and video library, and gorgeous water views. Outside lends to playing in the yard, resting on the decks and porches, fishing off our private dock, and enjoying hammocks around the grounds. Our private beach and cove is wonderful for swimming while the rocky shore is perfect for discovering sea glass, shells, driftwood, and pottery from days gone bye.

Location:
Grey Ledge Cottage is located on the western shore and has beautiful views of Hope Island, Harpswell to the north and amazing sunsets. The cottage is a 3-minute walk from the ferry and square.

Island Amenities:
If you desire tide pooling and larger beaches, Cliff Island's “back cove” is the perfect destination. Socialize and swim in the warm waters of Griffin's Cove. Tennis is available at the square on the clay court. Pearl's offers sandwiches, ice cream and sundries. There is a public library rich with literature, both past and current with a special section upstairs devoted to the history of Cliff Island. A.C.E. (Athletics, Conservation and Education) ball field on the island, which accommodates outside recreation such as volleyball, baseball and island community outings. ACE puts on a summer program for kids of all ages.

At the end of the day, sit on the porch to watch the most dramatic sunsets while enjoying peaceful island living at Grey Ledge.

Surrounding Area:
Ferries are available to explore the neighboring islands in Casco Bay that offer recreational centers, golf, restaurants and additional beaches. Or you may head back to the mainland on the frequent ferry service for all Portland has to offer: Portland's Old Port district: Shopping, Antiquing, Restaurants, Theaters, and Museums. Small day trips can take you to the outlets in Freeport for shopping at its best or hiking in the surrounding area.

Transportation:
The Island is serviced by Casco Bay Lines. We are the last stop on their year-round scheduled service. The ride to the island takes approximately 1 1/2 hours with stops at 4 other islands. Water Taxis are available for a flat rate and take approximately 25 minutes.
