About Natalia Sullivan

My father and his best friend built our cottage in 1990! My family and I spent every summer on Frye Island and still do today. We have been renting our cottage for 13 years. My best childhood memories are from my summers on Frye Island! It is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing family vacation that you will remember forever!

Natalia Sullivan purchased this cottage in 1992

Why Natalia Sullivan chose Frye Island

Our previous renters love the open floor plan of our home. Our large kitchen features a table with seating for 8 adjacent to the open living room finished with beautiful hardwood floors.

Sebago Lake is the cleanest lake in Maine, 316 feet deep, spring fed, outstanding! Frye Island offers so much to do without leaving the island including boating, swimming, fishing, golf, biking, jogging, tennis, basketball, and much more!

What makes this cottage unique

Frye Island has been featured in many New England magazines and was referred to as a "temporary town" in Maine's DownEast Magazine in a July 2009 article. Renters are often amazed at how much Frye Island has to offer within its 1,000 acres. One of our renters from this past summer referred to the island as a "hidden gem."

Frye Island is Maine's only freshwater island community and the only town that completely shuts down for half the year.The fact that Frye shuts down for 6 months, that doesn't affect the popularity of Frye Island for the remainder of the year. Our population doubles during the peak summer months and weekends. Despite the small size of our island and that we have only been an independent town since 1999 we have many wonderful island traditions!

Frye Island became a town July 1, 1998, in addition to celebrating the independence of our country, we celebrate our own independence with many 4th of July activities including fireworks, a golf cart parade, the 1 mile, 5K, and marathon road race, a boat building contest and race, along with any other traditions loved by children and families!

Exactly what we needed. The house was great! Enough room for my 3 teenage daughters and elderly parents. Large open floor plan was great for hanging out, playing cards and watching movies at night. We loved the location of the house. The closest beach was less than a 5minute walk. It was a small beach but my girls loved it. We did go to a bigger beach with a light house one day, but my girls loved the smaller one. The General Store/Café was close as well. We went to the restaurant twice, once to eat and once to play trivia. We got ice cream every night. The girls rode around the island on their bikes, which honestly, they haven't rode their bikes in years.

The community center has a gym and offers classes every Mon/Wed/Fri. 9am-10am, I went to all 3, they were great! Shout out to Marilyn the instructor.

Natalia was great to deal with and the welcome basket was a nice touch.

I'm so grateful to have found such a spot. It was very relaxing. Never knew Frye Island existed, but planning on coming back.

We have been to Frye Island many times and love it. This house is in a great location. Walking distance to several beaches and the General Store/Cafe. The open kitchen and family room is a great place to hang with family and the front deck is perfect. They had a new gas grill which came in handy. Natalia is very responsive and great to deal with when requesting info on the house. The house has large washer and dryer.

A great place to stay. Large open floor plan with a loft and plenty of places to sleep or just relax. Natalia was great to deal with and was very responsive and helpful with all our requests. The chalet had most everything we needed and the welcome basket was nice touch. The island was very laid back with plenty of beaches. Great place to walk, ride bikes and grab an ice cream or hit the restaurant on the island. Everyone on the was very pleasant and the nights were quiet and peaceful. We definitely plan on coming back again.

The chalet is very lovely and large. The welcome basket that greeted us when we arrived was a pleasant surprise. The island was clean, the water was clean and everyone we happened past were friendly. The beach was close as was the restaurant and ferry. I would definitely return again.
