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."

"After spending most of August and September at 3 Bay Point in Georgetown, we are relaxed, refreshed and now long for all that we had on such a small and secluded island in Maine. First, the house itself, which was completely renovated about 10 years ago, is both true to the original architecture while also offering modern bathrooms and a very workable kitchen that is both rustic in feel and able to stand up to all of our cooking. It is immediately evident that décor is the result of an artist’s eye. The entire four bedroom, three full bath house is filled with art and artifacts so that you are regularly resting your eyes on an enchanting new detail previously overlooked. Not an easy thing considering we were there for nearly two months! The grounds are lovely, with a variety of spots to hang out, including a stone backyard fire pit!
Deborah, the property owner was a joy to have nearby in the attached renovated barn. Deb is charming, charismatic, and is extremely responsive to any and all questions or requests. Toaster broken? No problem! A new toaster the next day. Thank you for everything Deb. We miss you!
The house is within a five minute drive to Reid State Park. We went to Reid nearly every afternoon to walk around the rocks and enjoy the many views of the water and islands. There are few commercial establishments on the island, but you can exist there without going to (the mainland if you wish. Or you can go to charming, nearby, Bath, Maine for whatever you may need. Georgetown is an excellent starting place for easy day trips to places like Wiscasset, Portland, Freeport and Boothbay Harbor.
Deborah will fill you in on everything you need to know and where to go for what.
All in all, this large, charming property is a perfect home away from home."

Don't tell anybody about this place, it's awesome!
"Not sure where to begin, but the house, the location, the views, the scenery, the food were all spectacular. A great place to see Maine. Hard to beat a 10 drive to get fresh lobster from the coop, or if you're lucky, flag down a lobsterman checking his traps and buy them right off the boat! Plenty of things to do, but also a great place to not do lots of things and just plain relax and unwind. Sit on the porch in a rocking chair and watch the Osprey and the occaisional Eagle perch in the trees right in front of you.
The house and furnishings are great. Everything you need is there for cooking. Grocery shopping is 20 minutes away."

"This is exactly what you want when you go to Maine. Great location at the end of a dirt road so it was very private (we brought our dogs and they loved the yard and we felt safe with them being able to run). Wallace's market is close by for the essentials and an awesome lobster roll. You can be at the docks getting super fresh lobster within minutes. We were really relaxed and thought the house had great amenities, like the kayaks, grills and board games. The deck was fantastic and we spent a lot of time on it just enjoying the great view to the cove"
