About Luke Rothschild
I'm a music professional that ended up in the Los Angeles area. I enjoy music, fine art, reading, and surfing. I LOVE our house on Chebeague island. Since it sits empty for some months of the year, I'm now listing it on VRBO and will be the point person for the rentals for the rest of my family.
Luke Rothschild purchased this House in 1954
Why Luke Rothschild chose Chebeague Island
My grandfather and grandmother bought the property in the 1950's. This house was originally built as a study and writing room for my grandfather. It then underwent multiple additions and grew into a really special 3 season home on the island. My grandmother was an interior designer in New York in the 50s and 60s, and she brought her substantial design aesthetic to bear on this special space. It sits tucked into the hill, with the stunning views expanding outward towards the bay.
What makes this House unique
Wake up to sun bathed wood and glass, and see the bay spread out before you. Soothe yourself with the balm of the salt air. The view is worth staying in for... But go exploring! When's that last time you walked the paths of an island retreat? The Upper House is situated uniquely to provide privacy, and yet is just a few hundred yards from The Boatyard, The Niblic, and multiple beaches just below. Biking and fishing and swimming are favorite activities. As are reading eating and sleeping. Its pretty much impossible to get a fresher lobster than the ones that come right out of Casco Bay and can be brought to you by the lobstermen themselves. There's also Second Wind Farms that has delicious fresh produce at the farm stand.

The way life should be
The place is amazing and and the views are stunning. The hosts was so nice and helpful and the owner is great to work with as well. The perfect vacation one I hope to do again next year.
The house was lovely, comfortable and well-appointed. We felt at home within moments of arriving. The owner and our "island hosts" made certain that any questions we had about the island and/or home were answered in a timely and thorough manner. We would love to spend another week in this wonderful home again!
Dominique and her family were wonderful guests! Kind, conscientious and communicative. We would love for them to come back next year :)
Nice home, beautiful views, and great location!
We loved our stay at the upper house. The location is close to everything Including the beaches, restaurants, pier , etc. you can pretty much bike everywhere. We would recommend this home to anyone!
