Secluded down a dead-end dirt road, our beach-side cottage sits in the lap of a beautiful sand and pebble beach, so close you can flip a coin into the water from the screen porch at high tide.
The building was a Sears and Roebuck kit house of 1923 which we recently remodeled with a new bath and a half, kitchen and master bedroom. We have retained the original charm and added more comfort and convenience: outside shower, inside bathtub, a wood stove for chilly nights.
Three bedrooms contain a king-size bed, a double and a pair of twin beds. Above the screen porch is a sleeping loft with another single bed. A stand alone bunkhouse has large bunk beds for a total of beds for ten! Bring your extended family and let the kids find green crabs among the rocks while you watch the osprey’s hunt as you have cocktails on the deck.
Wonderful walks are available island-wide protected by Islesboro Island Trust. Walk to the trailhead of the Herbert Preserve, just a mile away. The trail, 45 minutes, winds along an extensive estuary.
Summer programs–Big Tree Boating, Island Explorations and Expeditions, Islesboro Summer Recreation, Pripet Horse Riding–available for kids.
