About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

Deceptively spacious, this comfortable waterfront cottage is on lovely Casco Bay, and is an easy 15 minute ferry ride from downtown Portland. With no cars, it is peaceful and ideal for pedestrians. You will find a full kitchen; beautiful, completely renovated master bathroom; washer/dryer; screened porch opening to a deck, with 2 gliders and other chairs; golf cart for hauling groceries; sun/puzzle room; more than ample reading material; and large dining room with picture window looking out over the Bay.

Little Diamond connects at low tide by sand bar to Great Diamond (Diamond Cove Restaurant). Island culture includes Saturday night suppers at the 'casino', swimming in the Bay, strolling around, reading, and other vacation-ish things. Islanders are eclectic, friendly, welcoming.

Once in town, you are in a gem of a city, with art/culture, shops, a remarkable array of terrific restaurants, theaters, and more. You are also just 20 minutes from Freeport, with LL Bean and outlets galore.

In brief, Little Diamond offers the rare combination--serene yet convenient. A truly special spot. Available June through September.

We prefer weekly rental, but will consider a four day minimum under some circumstances.
