About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, Loft, 1.5 Bathrooms Sleeps 6
Diamond Cove is heaven for history buffs, and for families with children - no cars are allowed, so the roads and paths are great for bicycling and wandering. We're located on Great Diamond Island, a short ferry ride from Portland (well-known for its restaurants and waterfront attractions). A convenient location, easy to access from the airport or a two-hour drive from Boston, yet you'll feel you've stepped back in time, to a place quite remote from the real world.
Fort McKinley was built during the Spanish American War to guard Portland Harbor. It was manned through the end of World War II, and was restored as a private residential community, Diamond Cove, during the 1990's. The Firebarn is set in the heart of the restored historic buildings, in close walking distance to all of our island amenities.
Heated swimming pool 5 sheltered private beaches (including Seaglass Beach!) Original gymnasium with indoor basketball court Duckpin bowling in a restored turn-of-the-century bowling alley, with arcade games and a pool table Fitness Center with free weights, nautilus, treadmills, stair master, and rowing machine Two tennis courts General Store: with sundries, beer, wine, snacks, sandwiches, pizza, fresh lobster, coffee, the morning newspaper, and WiFi Grocery delivery available from town right to your door. Diamond's Edge Restaurant: a 5-star restaurant operated seasonally and located just off the Diamond Cove pier. Full-service marina with deep water slips for large sailboats and motor boats Shuttle bus service on the island to and from your home to the ferry dock Diamond Cove Gallery: art gallery exhibiting works from local artists Fort McKinley Museum: displaying artifacts and photographs from historic Fort McKinley Historic tours of the Fort by golf cart Miles of scenic walking trails, through old-growth forest and tide pools (watch for deer and seals and periwinkles and eagles and osprey) Administration Building: housing offices, meeting space, and the mail room.
