About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 7

One level summer cottage that overlooks a meadow and then on to Roberts Harbor. Guests will enjoy the refreshing ocean breeze from every room.

This secluded camp is on the east side of Vinalhaven where you can admire the lobster boats bringing in their catch for the day.

It's a short walk into town where you can enjoy a bite to eat from one of the local restaurants, or you can make your way to one of the many local beaches, hiking trails or nature preserves.

Why Ched & Jane Evans chose Mid-Coast & Islands

Vinalhaven is an idyllic island that allows visitors to enjoy a relaxing vacation. The Roost sits on the edge of a meadow filled with lupin and has a beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean. Early risers can enjoy their cup of coffee and watch the sunrise from the sitting room or a spot on the deck.

If visitors enjoy the outdoors and exploring nature, there are several Nature Preserves that you can take advantage of. Hiking, sailing, and kayaking are all activities that can be enjoyed on the island. Excursions can also be organized ahead of time to see some of the wildlife that live in the surrounding area.

Saturdays you can head into town for a early breakfast and than enjoy the flea market near the open area by the church. There you can enjoy food, island crafts, fresh vegetables, and more.

Vinalhaven is a place to relax and reconnect. We hope you enjoy this island as we have for many years.

Lovely Spacious Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Vinahaven is such a magical place, quiet and beautiful featuring fresh lobster and two higher-end restaurants on the island. We stayed at The Roost for a wedding with other family members and found the location to be so pretty, looking down across lupine and beach roses to the ocean/cove. The house has many rooms and they are were nicely furnished, including sheets and bedding, not always the case when visiting an island home. There was a big TV for anyone wanting it (we rarely used it). I would definitely stay here again!

Island Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Roost was welcoming and clean, with well-chosen decor to give it charm. We loved waking up with views of the coast, morning mists, and the gulls. Out the back door and along Coop Road were bushes laden with blackberries for the picking. Exploring the many nature preserves on the island was great fun, and returning to the cozy living room a treat. time to soak up the view, read a good book with a cup of tea! Owners were most accessible for our questions, but house set up nicely for finding everything. We even loved standing above the lobster docks to watch the day's catch arrive. For the shopper in the family, there were unique places to explore, even a wonderful used book store! An interesting selection of restaurants in town also.

I would happily recommend this property, and the island experience it affords.

Fun at the Roost

  • 4 of 5

My extended family was able to spend a wonderful week at the Roost last summer. It was a good place for two small families to use with interconnected rooms on one floor, entries in the back and front of the house, a spacious living room and deck, a well-equipped kitchen and a beautiful view of the water. We all love Vinalhaven, enjoying amazing quarries, a friendly little town with good eating spots and great Land Trust trails. This house is unique in its layout which makes it good for families. The owners are very accommodating and the neighbors are especially friendly and helpful!
