About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Lovely historic cottage situated on a 12 acre ocean front property, Little Red is a special place. Turner Cove is on the east side of Isle Au Haut, approximately 2 miles from town. Formerly a one room school house and built in the late 1800's, the structure has been completely renovated.

In 2015, an enclosed porch has been added for additional relaxation, and a sleeping area. Though not fancy, it has a simple, romantic, and peaceful setting for those who wish to escape from the busy world. There's a short path through the property leading down the ocean, and amazing views.

Close to Long Pond, and Acadia National Park, Little Red is in a great location as a base camp for island exploration!

Car: Not Necessary

The beauty of Isle au Haut is best explored in Acadia National Park which is approximately half the area of Isle Au Haut. There are many well maintained hiking trails, and opportunity for adventures along the rocky coast line. Climbing up Duck Harbor Mountain captures amazing views of Penobscot Bay and the mainland. Swimming in Long Pond on a hot summer day is invigorating. Biking around the island offers many sights, and access to many trails.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: My parents discovered Isle Au Haut in the early seventies. The family began camping in Duck Harbor, and fell in love with the rugged beauty of the island. After a few years, my parents purchased Turner Cove and commenced on major home and property improvements. Today the Little Red Schoolhouse is a greatly improved structure, quite comfortable in its plain Maine charm. A recent addition to the building has nearly doubled the square footage.

Why the Owner Chose Isle au Haut, ME, USA:
It's location out of town on the East side, allows beautiful views of Mount Desert Island 20 miles to the Northeast. It's a 2 mile trek to town, and about the same to Long Pond. Peaceful, and relaxing is the best way to describe the setting. Our family loves this special place on the planet, and we know you will too!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Owner can provide transportation for up to 3 people from the Bangor Airport to the ferry in Stonington. He also has a boat which he is willing to provide adventures with for a contribution towards his expenses. Go island hopping, seal watching, and explore Penobscot Bay. He can provide chef prepared meals.
