About the property

Breathtaking Scenery, Pebble Beach, Pool, 4 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Deep-Wa

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.

Peaceful reset

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful dreamy getaway from city life. The house was very clean. The neighbors are very quiet. If you want a getaway of peace and quiet - this is it!

We had prompt communications over email and a lovely face to face interactions with the owner. The pool was throughly enjoyed as well as the rocky shoreline. We hope to come back!

Breath-taking view and great house

  • 5 of 5

You could never tire of the wrap-around view of the ocean and bays and surrounding land. The property and pool are immaculately maintained, including a fire pit and a wood pile. The house is spacious with a grand deck and umbrella tables and gas grill. The beds are comfortable, plenty of sheets and towels. Kitchen is well equipped. We spent two afternoons at Popham Beach State Park, less than an hour away. Also enjoyed a lobster dinner on the beach in front of the house. This is an ideal place for a family to get away and enjoy all Maine has to offer.

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The views were spectacular! Everything was clean and well organized. Our grandsons loved going out on the ocean in the canoe, playing in the pool and exploring the beach. We were there over 4th of July and loved the fireworks we could see. Very friendly people. We would go back definitely. Close to a lot of other great places to enjoy.

We had a great week.

  • 5 of 5

The home was well equipped. A book with great instructions awaited us. The views were something that belongs on a postcard. On day one we kayaked to the island in front and saw seals. Went back a couple more times to no avail. The pool was great. I would highly recommend. We had up to 6 of us stayed there while a couple family members stayed elsewhere and joined us for dinner etc. There was even wood set aside for the fire pit.

Stunning house, amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I (two families of four) had a fantastic vacation at The Point. Everything about the house was meticulously thought out for maximum guest comfort and enjoyment. With air temperatures in the high 70s during our week, we didn't necessarily expect to spend a lot of time in the pool, but I was wrong--not only kids but also grown-ups spent whole days swimming and relaxing by the pool, which was warm and sparkling. We spent hours on the back deck of the house, sitting at the umbrella tables and enjoying the absolutely spectacular view, and roasted marshmallows at the fire pit on our last night. The house, furniture, beds, linens, towels, etc were all in excellent condition and everything was thoughtfully provided. The Dostie family were superb hosts and everyone we met on Gun Point was very welcoming. The location feels gorgeously remote but is actually very convenient to Brunswick (less than 20 min) for supermarket shopping and restaurant-going. A perfect house and a perfect vacation!

A Seaside Slice of Heaven!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My recent 3 week stay at "The Point" was a wonderful and the most relaxing vacation I have had in a very long time. The Panoramic View of the Ocean was mesmerizing and calming in my way too busy life. I was able to enjoy every meal out on the expansive wrap around deck with Sun Umbrellas. The Saltwater Pool was sheer bliss and always a comfortable temperature. Everything that I needed was there and it was spotless when I checked in.

The Hosts paid attention to every detail and made it so easy for me. They were wonderful and kind people who really care about their Guests experience.

I would highly recommend this property as it is the whole package and incredibly well priced for what you are receiving in return.

I was sad when I had to leave and return back home but you can bet that I am already signed up to return next year.
