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."

"The house was comfortable for 4 adults and 4 children. We really enjoyed the large deck area and yard. The location was easy access to a put-in for paddle boards and kayaks. Easy trip to Rockland and Camden. We enjoyed walking to the small grocery store and biking to Drift In Beach. St. George/Tenants Harbor/Port Clyde are lovely."

FANTASTIC! The photos don't do it justice! No sir!
"We had time to take a break from our tourist business to head Downeast for a bit and this was just what the doctor ordered. First - the cottage is IMMACULATE! Everything we needed and more. The deck is a sun scoop and we had lovely weather to enjoy some apps and refreshments. The fenced in little yard was perfect for our Dachshunds, one of whom found 2 tennis balls, he was in heaven! The pleasant beach/point area was quiet and relaxing. I wish we had time for a few days, maybe next year. Billy provided us with chairs and we hiked out to the point and read our books with just the sound of of the tide coming in. Our little Doxies loved exploring the rocks. Next time, a longer stay as work allows!
We live on a sailboat in the winter and work renting sailboats and teaching in Maine in the summers so it was a treat to enjoy the coast albeit briefly without having the phone ring. Someday, we'll be able to sail the coast and not worry about work, for now, this is our spot!
We brought our own linens and towels, although they were supplied, and hopefully left it as spotless as we found it for the next visitors. Why? Out of respect for the care that someone is putting into this property. Thanks very much Mr. Krott and Billy!"

"Our family came to New Harbor from the San Francisco Bay Area for a family wedding. The house is big and very comfortable. The kitchen is extremely well stocked so we could have a large group of family members for breakfast. We all sat out in the sunshine on the deck enjoying the endless green lawns sweeping from "our house" to the neighbor's house. Lovely spot, and the experience was a bonding one for our family! Thank you."
