Property description

This lovely cape is a family home located just a ten minute walk to the center of town at 71 East Main St (Please call this number if you are interested or need more infomation and want to talk about reservations, 413 634 5789- Rick thanks). It is 2 blocks from the Library and just after Boston Rd on the right hand side. It is over 100 years old with hardwood floors, Quiet and cozy with a new kitchen and king size mattress in the master bedroom. It is set back from the road 100 plus feet. Three blocks away is the local school with basketball court and large playground structure. When you think of Maine with it's rugged coastline and ocean views Vinalhaven has it all. Ideal for, bicycle riding, hiking/ exploring and swimming in the local quarries ,( the ocean is a bit cold and getting in can be a bit of a challenge, but we usualy go in ourselves at Geary's beach .

Booth Quarry is one mile from the house. You can walk or drive to reach it, and it has an area at either end for easy access to the water for small children. When you get off the Ferry ride (one hour and 15 minutes from Rockland ME) the Fisherman's co-op is right there (on your right just after leaving the ferry parking lot) if you wish to purchase Lobster's harvested that day. Pick up a copy of the Wind (a free local newspaper with current info) downtown in the stores or in the parking lot, and at the Library. The Library has Internet access,videos and story time on Saturday mornings across from the Flea market..There is broadband at the house,so bring your Laptop.
The Island is a place to relax and the phone is good for any where in the U.S. You can take a kayak tour or bring your own. There is a gym by Fisherman Freind conveinece store. The Gym has many machines for a total work out.Check out local hiking areas,and (rent bicycles at the Tidewater Motel in the center of town) or bring yours with you.
There is a deck on the back of the house and you can see Indian Creek (a view of the ocean). Have a morning coffee or grill on the deck. We have a small library of videos(VCR and dvds). The local Library is just a 5 minute walk down the street with computers/wi-fi.

The bedrooms are upstairs,1 queen,a full size, a king(new), and a small room with a single bed. The living room has a recliner and a full-size sofa (with a pull out bed).The kitchen was recently remodeled with new dishwasher,stove and refrigerator.
