Rackliff Island House Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 6
Rackliff Island is easily accessed by a short causeway/road.
Calling all nature lovers! In a word, 'Edges' is splendid! It is gorgeous, peaceful, private. Dark green spruces mingle with black and white birches. Mosses and lichen color granite rocks. Wild Maine roses spice the salt air.
Our house faces South,on the water's edge. The view is down the cove (protected, deep-water anchorage) to sea . The property runs the entire 600' on the cove's west side, encompasses over 3 acres and ends on a spectacular point with views out to Monhegan Island. Views are gorgeous and you have privacy and space. You can walk, fish, read, create, boat, daydream. Paddle a kayak around the islands. Dine al fresco on the point. Watch the incoming tide splash its way against the rocks. Search for treasure left behind.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at "edges". It really was just as nice as it looked in the pictures. The highlight of our stay was kayaking among the porpoises off Port Clyde. I hope we'll have the chance to come back someday. Thanks again for providing such a wonderful vacation home.
