Welcome to your vacation home - a nearly new barn style summer home on Broad Cove near the ferry. Imagine yourself relaxing on the deck at the end of a busy day while your kids entertain themselves on the lawn and in the field leading to the cove. On the shore is a rocky beach and deep water anchorage (w/heavy mooring). The waterfront includes the use of a dinghy and a float. Or, on cooler days, curl up in front of the fireplace with a good book(well stocked library) while you look out through the french doors.
On the first floor, you will enjoy an open living room w/fireplace, dining room, kitchen. which is well supplied and includes the basic food needs: salt, pepper, flour, sugar, lobster pot, etc. Or, move your meals outdoors for al fresco dining on the deck. There is a half bath on the first floor.
On the second floor, the master bedroom includes a queen sized bed with down comforter, the second has twin beds and and the third has bunk beds. A full bath, well supplied with linens(including swimming towels), has full amenties including a washer and dryer.The playroom includes VCR, DVD player and plenty of tapes and discs. No TV reception, sorry! The loft has a ladder and a wonderful hang-out for the kids or air mattress for sleeping.
Getting to Islesboro is part of the enchantment of this island - you arrive by car ferry which leaves frequently from Lincolnville Beach. This is definitely a summer cottage with a get-away-from-the-world feeling. You will find the comforts of home without the hassle of the work-a-day world. However, you will have connection with wifi and phone.
Islesboro is ten miles long and a mile wide. It offers two grocery stores(w/liquor), a library, bookstore, gift/paper/lunch store and the snack shack at the ferry. You will also find a golf club, public tennis courts and also a kids sailing program. Biking is great - especially to the snack shack which is only 1/4 mile from the house and offering the best sunsets in Maine!
A day trip to Camden, Fort Knox in Bucksport or even antiquing along Rte. 1 will round out your vacation in Maine.
