About the Property
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Stroll along the beach collecting shells and glass. Set up your easel and capture the tall ships, lobster boats and seals/eagles that are ever present.
Explore nature trails within a walking distance. Take a sailing or riding lesson. Explore the area in the kayaks we have. Go to the old fashioned ice cream palor in Dark Harbor -- could be a daily event!!
Over 2400 sq ft in our waterfront cottage where you can get away from all the hustle and bustle and really relax.
Islesboro is a 20 minute ferry ride from Lincolnville, a few miles north of Camden. It is an unspoiled, quiet place. The nearby towns on the mainland are some of the prettiest on the coast.
The house has three bedrooms. Three double beds. There are 500 plus feet of private shore filled with fat mussels for picking at low tide.
The island is low-key. We do have many activities on the island in the summer -- public beaches, nature walks and hiking trails, community center activities, opportunities for sailing lessons, etc. -- time spent here is largely about relaxing, ambling around, thinking about what to make for dinner, wandering to the shore and back, looking at the sky and water. It is also an ideal place to do concentrated artistic or creative work.
“The island became a retreat for America’s elite in the early 1900’s. Back then it was industrialist Perry Coke Smith, actresses Christie Tiffany and Ruth Draper, Gibson Girl creator Charles Dana Gibson, and yacht designer Clinton Crane. Today it’s actors Kirstie Alley, John Travolta and Kelly Preston, Parker Stevenson (Hardy Boys), stockbroker and influential Republican contributor Richard Gilder, former presidential advisor Hodding Carter III and cell phone pioneer John McCaw Jr. (a former prep school classmate of Bill Gates — and occasional visits by Bill and Melinda).” Downeast Magazine, August 2006.
Islesboro is Maine at its best. Our cottage is at the center of all.

About the owner: We have vacationed in Maine for over 15 years and found this island cottage. We have spent many, many weeks here with our family and friends.
Why the Owner Chose Islesboro, ME, USA:
We like the quiet isolation of the island and not being isolated from the mainland.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It's a few steps to the beach. Pick mussels for dinner in the front 'yard' or put the kayak in and explore or fish for striped bass and mackeral -- never a bad day -- it doesn't get any better. Of course you could sit on the deck or move to the Adirondack chair to watch Tall Ships, lobster fishermen, seals, etc. while enjoying a favorite beverage.
