Property description

Truly “a spectacular location’ are always the words of first-time visitors to The Point. Old friends returning say “you can never get enough of the view”. Located at the very end of Gun Point, the most southerly peninsula on Great Island - The Dostie Family welcomes you to The Point.
Relax and enjoy the stunning vista or take a dip in the solar-heated saltwater pool. Hike the two-mile quiet private road or explore the shoreline for natural treasures. Skip stones from the beach or paddle the sheltered cove in search of seals. Whatever you choose, you will soon be lost to your surroundings - Maine’s natural beauty at its best.
The main house has four bedrooms and will accommodate eight comfortably. The first floor has an open floor plan with a combined kitchen, dining room and living area. The bedrooms are located on the second floor. The kitchen contains all the equipment needed for your lobster dinner or your breakfast toast. The internet keeps you connected. Cable service and a large screen TV are available for the rare occasion when you find yourself indoors. The home is clean and comfortable like that special sweater or your favorite jeans. Not fancy, but with everything you’ll need for one of the most memorable times of your life. If we don’t have it – you don’t need it!
Site amenities include an outdoor gas grill, patio furniture, canoe and a fire pit. The saltwater pool is heated with solar panel on the roof of the cabana. With prior arrangements, boaters have access to the dock and mooring. If you choose to bring your own boat it can be launched directly from the beach in front. On the east shore there is a sheltered cove with a deep-water wharf and float system where you can dock your boat. There is plenty of room to park two vehicles as well as a boat trailer.
