One in a million property. People rave about enjoying the awesome, pristine view, with no bugs even in the evening.
There are no mosquitoes we have never found a tick. They love the total privacy of the many acres, and the spacious living room. They always remark on the comfortable furniture and beds and well equipped kitchen that includes spices, etc. The cove is calm for kayaking.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This house is situated on a bluff of 7 acres overlooking Ryder Cove. It is truly a beautiful
setting. Yet,just a short trail takes you to a
long beach & 2 kayaks to explore the cove.It is
well protected with calm waters and a number of
yachts at anchor.One must travel by ferry from
Lincolnville to Islesboro Island. This adds an
element of excitement and also a feeling of truly escaping the hectic pace of the mainland.
The island is home to only 600 people for 10 months of the year while the population expands
to 2,000 during the 2 months of summer. There are beautiful beaches,unspoiled scenic trails and islands, beautiful homes (mansions called
"cottages") and some well known shipyards. Fresh lobster is available. A charter sailboat
excursion was a big treat. Plan to experience
life as it once existed 2 generations ago. Everybody waves to you while passing in their
car, and there exists a close connection between the native islanders and their environment
