Orrs Island house description

Come enjoy our year round home down a private road with almost 2 acres of woods for privacy. The ocean side of the house has a wrap-around deck for watching the kids play while enjoying the view or putting up your feet with a good book. 300 feet of oceanfront provides 'the best view on the island'.

The kitchen is fully furnished for all your needs. The dining room table can easily seat 8. The large living room has two picture windows giving a breathtaking view of the sound. The living room is perfect for lounging, entertaining or playing the baby grand piano. A cozy den with a fireplace, also overlooking the water is a peaceful place to play games or read. Its sliding glass doors open onto the deck.

The master suite (queen bed) with dressing area and private bath is on the main floor. Upstairs are 2 bedrooms (one with double bed, one with twin beds), a full bath and sitting area which also works as a rainy day play area. A sofa bed in the den sleeps an extra two people. Laundry and another half bath are also on the main floor.

The side deck overlooks an area perfect for picnics and a safe play area. The access to our private beach is at the edge of our property; just follow the path.

Pet policy: Small dogs only (20 lbs or less), no cats.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1984

              About the owner: Our aunt and uncle built the house and we are now its caretakers. Our family loves Orrs Island and it offers total relaxation as a family vacation spot.

              Why the Owner Chose Orrs Island:
              We came for our first vacation over 20 years ago and cannot imagine our lives without watching the lobstermen tend their traps each day and the incredible sunsets in the evening.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Harpswell Sound is alive with the daily lives of lobstermen, families of waterfowl, sea otters, and sailboats. The beach is private and offers great opportunity for shelling, sea glass collecting and wandering.
