MAINE ISLAND BEACHFRONT COTTAGE-GREAT VIEWS-PEBBLY/SANDY BEACH-ISLAND CHARM

Islesboro Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Pebbly/Sandy Beach, Sleeps 8, Great Views, Updated Bathroom w/ Outdoor Shower

Solsidan is a traditional-style Maine beachfront cottage. The setting, nestled on a quiet point with pebbly/sandy beach front and back, is truly spectacular. The cottage has a magnificent view across Penobscot Bay to Cape Rosier and Castine and beyond to Blue Hill.

You can step off the porch and walk the beach with your morning coffee. The beach is regarded as one of the best on the island. The cove has a small number of original summer cottages. Enjoy quiet walks, boating, reading, and relaxation. Dine on the covered porch and enjoy the view.

Some changes have taken place during its life but Solsidan retains the original wood open-wall construction. The house has a spirit that conjures up images of the summer-long family sojourns that have occurred many summers during the last 100 years of the cottage's history.

Water on two sides.: See the view of the back beach while preparing dinner in the kitchen!

Narrative description: Solsidan has 3 bedrooms, one on the first floor (queen bed), and two on the second floor. There is also a large open room (studio) overlooking the bay that has two twin beds. The first floor has a bedroom, kitchen, living room with woodstove (wood provided), spacious bathroom (recently redone), laundry space, and glassed-in porch sitting/dining area. There is also an outdoor shower area. One full side of the house overlooking the water is a covered porch, with plenty of room to spread out in the separate dining and sitting areas. The house is fully equipped with bed linens, towels, pots, pans, and bakeware, dishes, coffee grinder and maker, lobster pot, toaster oven, blender, charcoal grill, radio, CD/iPod player, books, puzzles, and games.

Ahhhhh....

  • 5 of 5
The description of Solsidan is accurate, however does not do justice. By entering Solsidan I was reminded of all that was good as a child. A huge porch overlooking the ocean welcomed us, and the sometimes creaky screen door was music to my ears. A cupboard full of board games allowed us to completely forget that TV even existed. The well appointed and clean (including cook-books) kitchen allowed us to create fabulous meals, that we enjoyed ether on the big round table on the porch, or at the cosy nook surrounded by the sea. The walls are full of book for every age and inclination. The book you forgot to bring may be there, and if not, you'll be sure to find another. Sea glass, shells and the smoothest of pebbles from the ocean are a continual reminder of my stay at the welcoming cottage at the end of a point. Not only is this place well maintained, I feel that both the owners and guests have an affection for Solsidan that demands care and respect. There are no restaurants or attractions and this is perhaps the best aspect of the place. Enjoying the company of loved ones is what made our stay here extraordinary.

Maine State Ferry Service-Lincolnville Beach
Car: necessary

The island is served by the best ferry service of any of the islands visited by the Maine State Ferry service. On Islesboro the pace is self-made. There are no commercial attractions available on the island; i.e., no theaters, nightclubs, shopping malls, etc. In the summer the ferry, which holds about 30 cars, makes hourly trips between 8 AM and 5 PM. When the ferry runs are done for the day the island is isolated and quiet.

There are two general stores, an ice cream shop, and two gas stations (at the stores). The Dark Harbor Shop has a great old-fashioned ice cream & lunch counter as well as some nice gift items. The Islander takeout at the ferry terminal is available for breakfast and lunch (sometimes dinner). The gossip is great! Lots of great walks are to be found on the island. Explore all you can. You can generally get a map of the island at the ferry terminals and we also try to keep one at the house. One of our favorite walks is Turtle Head at the north end of the island.
