Bird's Nest sits high on a secluded ledge immediately on the rocky shore of the mouth of the Sheepscot River. Fall is the best time of year here, with crisp mornings, burning afternoons, and cozy evenings by the fire.
This house boasts spectacular views of the Sheepscot River and out to sea. With 3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, 2 family areas, screened in breezeway/breakfast area, full kitchen and expansive outdoor space, this house can fit 6. Also, fireplace and new W/D. Includes dock. Ferry service on lobster boat available 3 times daily in July and August. Immediate access to rocky point and Cory Cove Beach.
There is a parking lot to leave your car. It costs $5/night, on honor system, payable at the lodge/candy store/post office on the island. You can drive right to the dock, unload, then backtrack about 100 yards to the parking lot to park. The ferry takes you across the Little Sheepscot River to the public float. From there, it is a 10 minute golf cart ride across the island to the house, which looks out across the Big Sheepscot River to the sea. Also, rent a whaler for the week and dock it near the house and have your own transportation to, from and around the island. Walking is very popular on the island. Most houses are on just the southernmost end of the island, leaving the majority of the island beautifully wooded, with well-kept paths for wandering.
15' or 19' boat rental by day or week makes this unique and gorgeous spot accessible to all, through mid-October.
