A beautiful 150-year old saltwater farm surrounded by acres of fields and woods with thousands of feet of shorefront on a tranquil cove.
The perfect setting to go kayaking and canoeing for an active day on the water, to go bicycling and explore the island or Vinalhaven town, to go hiking, or to go swimming in either the salt water or nearby fresh water granite quarries (one two miles away the other four miles distant). You may also want to swim in the warm (for coastal Maine) saltwater cove behind the house, pick berries, or explore the woods on the nearby trails.
Or else just relax on the back porch with a book and a view over the wildflowers and cove and watch the ospreys diving for fish.
There is a 5 BR main house with 3 baths, a guesthouse with 1 BR and a 6-bed bunkroom that kids love.
