'EDGES'- OCEANFRONT, GREAT VIEW & LOCATION. PRIVACY. ACCESS BY CAUSEWAY.

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.

The house's cedar-sided exterior is contemporary. The spruce and pine interior is warm and inviting, with exposed beams and columns.

Our house features an extended living room, with a dining area and kitchen at one end.The master bedroom/full bath suite,plus private porch and deck are off the east end. There are 2 decks and a portion of the master bedroom deck is screened. A multi-story window in the living room provides wonderful light and view. Floors are random width pine with area rugs.

Furniture is casual and comfortable. The modern kitchen includes gas range, microwave, and dishwasher. There is also a half bath and laundry room with washer & dryer. Second story features: 2nd bedroom has dressing area with 2-steps up to sleeping area, queen-sized bed, water view. 3rd bedroom with twin beds, hall full bath (T/S), library/loft with water view.

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.

Most relaxing vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5
Myself, my husband, and my inlaws spent a wonderful week at Edges. The grounds are lush and beautiful and we had a great time exploring the water's edge path to the point. We slept with the windows open to take advantage of the breeze and the sounds of the water. I enjoyed using the screened porch off of the master bedroom for my reading time, but my favorite thing to do was taking my coffee down the path to the little cabin's porch every morning. What a beautiful view! Our days were split between spending time at Edges and exploring nearby Camden and Rockland. We also visited the transportation museum that is only a few minutes drive from Edges. We enjoyed every minute of our vacation and so did my inlaws. They mentioned that they have spoken of the trip every day since our return. Also, the owners are the best!

Serenity and Seclusion at Edges

  • 5 of 5
My wife, daughter, and I stayed for a week at Edges in August. After a very long day of driving it was a big relief to find out that the description and photos of the place didn't do the reality justice. It was charmingly rustic yet had everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The location is picture perfect: very private, very green, and very relaxing. The town of Rockland was an easy 15 minute drive. While we missed having internet access and satellite t.v. (more for our daughter's amusement than our own), I would not hesitate to spend another week at this totally relaxing, highly enjoyable house.

accurate property description

lovely secluded location, however the property maintenance was not as described and hopefully the roof doesn't leak or the dishwasher breaks because you may have to cover the bill. Not very easy to discuss issues with the owner. But a nice location overall.

Owner's Response: There is no maintenance issue here. This is about responsibility for damage. These tenants damaged a large landscape print by Monet. Their accounts of what happened did not match up and while we were not eyewitnesses to the event, we feel, as do the frame shop professionals, they took the painting off the wall and then rehung it incorrectly, using only one of the two hooks to hang it back up. We had hung it on two 50 lb. hooks. One hook remained intact in the wall and showed no damage, and the other was ripped out of the wall and bent. The glass on the painting was broken and the frame corners jarred apart. This is the first time in five years of renting that we have withheld any money from a security deposit. The exact repair amount was withheld and a copy of the shop's bill included with the balance of the deposit.

Come to 'Edges' and you won't want to leave.But Rockland, Rockport, Camden, Thomaston, Port Clyde,are minutes away and have it all:nationally acclaimed festivals,1st class museums,auctions,historic sites,golf courses,restaurants and day cruises.Want to do the blues with stars like Bobby Bland? Go to The Blues Festival in Rockland. How about the art of the Wyeths & other prestigious artists who painted New England? Spend the day at The Farnsworth Museum; later visit the home depicted in Andrew Wyeth's 'Christina's World'.

Rather play golf? Tee off oceanside at the Samoset or 3 Dogs PC. Like cars, bikes & airplanes? Owl's Head Transportation Museum is for you. They have many summer events,even live auctions- no telling what you could bring home! And there are many nearby antique auctions.Or treasure hunt at flea markets.

Don't forget Rockland's Lobster Festival, with parade,exhibitions,and 'lobstah'! I have it from a reliable source there's quite a few 'lobstahs' with your name on them.

Kayak and explore around the islands.Fish from off the point or on a deep-sea charter boat.

Enjoy great golfing on the ocean, at 3 dogs golf course and the samoset resort golf course, both within a few miles.

Dine at award-winning fine restaurants (Primo's grows their own produce), or enjoy relaxed home-cooking at small local establishments. Try the hardy breakfasts at the Keag,with the locals.
