About the property

Two Distinct Ocean Views, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bath, 2 Outdoor Kitchens

Stunning water views worthy of a postcard from every room in this restored carriage house and separate guest house. Available for rent separately or together. Nature trails, multiple beaches and 4,200 feet of shoreline to explore on this 52 acre property. Access to a shared dock and two moorings.

The house is at the end of the island known as Crabtree Point. It is about a 10-15 minute drive from the town of North Haven where you'll leave the ferry. You may not want to leave the property but if you do, the 3 x 9 mile island boasts beautiful views in all directions. There are three working harbors filled with sailboats and a fleet of lobstermen. Downtown you'll find three restaurants, post office, library, boat yard, art gallery, gift shops, and Waterman's Community Center. Waterman's is a place to gather to play board games, ping pong or use their free Wifi. They also offer various classes from photography to tennis, summer camp, day care, and coffee shop. Weekly first run movies are shown in the movie theatre. Plays, music, presentations and events are featured throughout the summer. The North Haven Casino, the island's 100 year old yacht and tennis club, has 2 tennis courts and offers sailing and tennis lessons to children. A Saturday Farmers' Market, 9-hole golf course cited by GOLF as one of the best small courses in the US, and even a branch of the Rockport YMCA with fully equiped fitness center offer additional options for fun and exercise. Many just enjoy biking, walking the island or kayaking.

Turner Farm is an organic saltwater farm on the island that produces MOFGA certified-organic vegetables, flowers, poultry, herbs and eggs. They also produce pasture-raised beef and pork, and operate a pasture-based goat dairy. The dairy provides milk for their farmstead Creamery, which specializes in fresh chèvre and artisan goat and cow cheeses. TheTurner Farm Stand is open in their stunning barn each Tuesday and Thursday from 10am-1pm from May through September and is also part of the Saturday Farmers' Market.

Nebo Lodge, with its award winning cuisine using island-grown organic produce, is the perfect spot for dinner or a drink at the intimate bar. The outdoor terrace has been expanded to accomodate more diners.

Calderwood Hall Pizzeria and Market offers homemade pizza, bar and clever gourmet market downtown. During the day, Calderwood Hall's market sells local, organic produce and culinary delights. Fresh bread is cooked daily. Hot out of the oven, it's reason enough to visit North Haven.

Cooper's Landing, with its bright umbrellas lining the outdoor deck, rounds out the restaurant offerings. The menu offers excellent casual dining. They also have a beer and wine license. This year the indoor dining room has been renovated and expanded.

What makes vacationing unique on this island is that so little has changed over the years. Looking out to the Thoroughfare you can see schooners that used to carry cargo up and down the coast and are now filled with tourists from Camden and Rockland. As you watch them sail by you feel like time has stopped in this magical place.

Although August is a popular month, June and July are absolutely stunning on North Haven. The weather is warm and wild flowers are in bloom everywhere you look. September and October retain the warmth of the summer but the island gets quieter. North Haven remains a wonderful place to relax, enjoy nature and do exactly what you want to do with your days and nights. Experience a truly relaxing vacation in one of Maine’s most beautiful, preserved and private locations.

The Maine state ferry makes three one-hour trips to and from Rockland daily. Cars are permitted on board the ferry.

Penisular Privacy

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin--without saying indescribable. First there are the magnificent views across Penobscot Bay, northeast to the hills that rise behind Camden, southwest to open ocean. Then there are the walks through wildflower meadows, through fragrant stands of tall firs and along pristine rocky beaches --- all without leaving the property. There is the home itself, beautifully appointed, and set among vibrant gardens and artistic granite stonework. And finally there is the serenity that pervades the property, in glittering sunlight and even more in mist and fog. In sum: a dream vacation retreat.

Peaceful & Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

I spent 4 wonderful days at Crabtree Cottage in August 2014. It is an idyllic setting and home, and an escape from the hustle and bustle. Growing up, I spent summers in the Adirondacks, and North Haven reminded me of my childhood a little bit. I loved getting up early and taking my coffee and book to the chairs set out on one of the Points. There are trails throughout the property for walking or running. The 2 terraces are great for relaxing and watching the boat traffic pass by. It was a very relaxing, fun trip and I can't wait to return in August 2015!
