Eleanor’s Cottage, our vacation home, is a recently renovated 1500 sq. ft. charming 1-2 bedroom cottage located on picturesque Great Island overlooking Quahog Bay - located only 15 minutes from Brunswick/Bowdoin College, 30 minutes from Freeport (home of LLBean, lots of outlet shopping). It is the perfect venue for a couple that just wants to get away or you have children at Bowdoin that you would like to spend time with. Relax on the deck or in the gorgeous large screen room overlooking panoramic views of the bay including lobster boats and Pole Island. You can enjoy a small rocky shore or a private deep water dock for fishing, swimming or kayaking – 2 kayaks, paddles, vests (Maine law - must wear) are complimentary. The private large yard has beautiful gardens and plenty of room for games or to just sit and enjoy the views in nice adirondack chairs. If you love bird watching there are numerous song birds, sea gulls, osprey, eagles, loons, and sea ducks.
In the afternoons, you can walk to one of the lobster pounds located next door to get a delicious Maine lobster to cook in the fully stocked kitchen. There is a nice Weber gas grill that you can also use.
On the main floor is an entrance room, living room with TV, kitchen, full bath and a bedroom that sleeps 2 very comfortably in a new, adjustable tempurpedic queen bed. Our second story is an open tastefully decorated sitting/game area with stunning views of Quahog and Casco Bay. We do not have a washer and dryer, but there is a laundromat in Cook's Corner (15 min away). There is a private road and parking. Smoking is absolutely prohibited.
