About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

This historic property, our Guest House, has been tastefully and comfortably restored. It was built over 100 years ago. It is located on its own cove with your own private island accessible at low tide. The sun porch that stretches the full width of the house offers an incredible view of the cove, only a few feet away. Houses cannot be built this close to the water any longer. Numerous wildlife has been observed from the sun porch, including a pair of Bald Eagles, Osprey, ducks, and Loons. The house has a fully equipped kitchen with eat-in-area. The living room has a Franklin Stove, allowing the creation of a cozy setting on those sometimes cool Maine evenings. The two bedrooms upstairs offer a nice retreat. This house is ideal for a couple or a small family. The setting is very private and very beautiful. The rock garden blooms summer long with a variety of flowers. The lawn allows one to easily beach a canoe or a kayak. We have just added a screened porch which adds a chance to observe the outdoors in comfort. Hiking trails maintained by the Vinalhaven Land Trust are a close walk away.Crockett's Cove offers boaters wonderful surprises, such as reversing falls, Whitmore Pond, and other small islands to explore or stop for lunch..It is an easy drive to town or to the landing for North Haven Island. This is the guest house for the main house (the Cottage). If our guest house does not work for you, take a look at the Cottage at VRBO 857705. We also charter a 20'-0" sailboat.

Owner info

About the owner: Our family has been vacationing on Vinalhaven for many years. We stay in the Cottage located a few hundred yards from our guest house. A meadow separates the two houses. They each have their own view of Crockett's Cove. The guest house is a fisherman's cottage that we restored, adding modern features but retaining the character of the house.
