"We all (10 of us ages 1 - 59) had a wonderful time, the house and yard were beautiful and we had plenty of room for nightly wiffle ball games!! We ventured to Camden for a Schooner Ride and Rockland to walk the breakwater, we bought lobsters a mile up the road (past the Olson House) at the docks from the lobstermen. The house has everything you need and is marked so you never have any questions and the apartment is a great addition for a large group. The views from the house and deck were breathtaking and the flower gardens are beautiful they along with the dock made for great photo ops. We spent a lot of time sitting on the beach, we brought 3 kayaks and a canoe and they were always being used, plus some fished off the dock too, it was definitely a vacation we will all remember and I would recommend this spot to anyone."

Perfect Location for Relishing Island Life on Islesboro
"What a wonderful location on the island for slowing down, taking a deep breath, and relishing life on Islesboro. The lovely home sits in the middle of the island so it's easy to go up-island or down-island. Plus you have a true sense of privacy. Adirondack chairs that sit next to a short drop-off overlooking the Penobscot Bay or sitting on the property's beach were our family's go-to places to read, zone, meditate, or write. Even our 2 teens got into this pattern. They also thoroughly enjoyed the provided kayaks w/ PFDs for exploring the calm bay. Poking around on the property's beach, especially at low-tide, with no time constraints --- heaven! The island has 2 small markets (Durkee's and Island Market) that have a surprisingly nice variety of groceries/household supplies and each are a very short drive from the house. Be sure to research your food options & store hrs ahead of time so you know what you'll want to bring with you from the mainland though. The home has a generous amount of towels/linens and a nice variety of kitchen pots/pans/dishes, including an outdoor propane-fueled lobster cooker. Free WIFI is available 24/7 just a 10 min walk down the road at the public library. Thank you Alan for making your home available for those of us that relish living a more quiet, serene life, even if just for a week."
