This is a beautiful, light-filled 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home perched on a hill in the village. A wonderful base to explore North Haven island, it is a quiet, private house, yet a short walk to Nebo Lodge, the ferry terminal, the public boat landing, Waterman's Community center, sailing, and beaches.
Recently renovated, the house has a covered front porch with views of the harbor, a dining room that seats eight, a comfortable living room with built-in window seats and book shelves, a spacious kitchen, and a brand new laundry room. Upstairs there are four beautiful, cozy bedrooms, three with ocean views. Two queen, one full and two twin beds make this home perfect for a family or several couples. At the back of the house, the children's room (with twin beds) also has a small reading nook with a built-in bunk for rainy afternoons. There is comfortable seating on the front porch and an outdoor table in the backyard for summer meals.
If you choose to bring bicycles or a car to the island, you're a short ride from Turner Farm, North Haven Grocery and sweeping views of the Camden Hills. North Haven is perfect for bike riding, with quiet roads that wind along the ocean. Only 12 miles long and 3 miles wide, you're never far from anything on the island.
Spend the day swimming, sailing or reading, then gather at the Folly before walking to Nebo Lodge for dinner. In the summertime, there's no better place to call home.

About the owner: Our family lives in Maine year round near Portland. My husband and I are in our fifties and we have two grown daughters - with our first grandson on the way. We discovered North Haven Island during a weekend stay at Nebo Lodge. We rode bikes all day, had an incredible dinner and fell in love with the island. At the end of the weekend we didn't want to leave so we started looking for a second home.
Why the Owner Chose North Haven: Luck brought us to The Folly, built in 1880. It truly is a magical place. The Folly is located within walking distance of the village - perched on a hill - so we can see the comings and goings of the ferry and the boats on the thorofare. We have renovated, added comfortable beds and furniture, but kept the charm of the house.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The house has a great layout with four good sized bedrooms. Space to stretch out and great gathering spots. The porch is a wonderful place for coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. Highlights: walking over to Nebo for dinner after riding bikes and swimming all afternoon. Or staying home and reading on the window seat under a quilt.
