This is a place that 'time forgot.' Think 19th century Vermont transported to an island in the ocean! Crow's Nest cottage is an easy 20 minutes by ferry off the gorgeous Maine coast. 100 years old, shingle-sided, and renovated, Crow's Nest cottage is located at the northern, rural end of legendary Islesboro Island, considered by many the most beautiful of all Maine islands. Cottage faces the Meadow Pond, a quiet, lush wildlife refuge. Sleeps 4 comfortably. SMOKE-FREE home. Minutes from beaches. Large deck.
1 or 2 well-behaved, well-groomed dogs welcomed.
Our Meadow Pond Neighborhood: Crows Nest cottage is located “up-island” and looks across to the 20 acre, fresh water, Meadow Pond, a neat wildlife refuge for deer, birds, turtles, beaver, etc. You need a car on the island to get to the 2 small grocery stores, to the 2 restaurants and ice cream parlor, for speedy trips to local beaches and public playground, and to get to the ferry.
This is a place with Hundreds of Secluded and Hidden Coves and Beaches. If you love the splendor of the Atlantic Ocean and Maine coast without droves of tourists, Islesboro is your place. There are dozens of secluded and incredible coves and beaches -- both sandy and rocky -- within a 5 to 15 minute drive from the cottage. Or pack a backpack and bike (or walk!!) to them....Explore them on foot and or in a kayak. Bring picnic lunches and suppers and play Robinson Crusoe on your 'private' island.

Explore the nearby coast : The wonderful villages of Camden and Belfast are minutes from the Lincolnville ferry. Camden has many shops, a great book store (or 2), food stores, restaurants, antique shops, public library, and energetic waterfront full of beautiful old and new boats. Schooners for day tripping are berthed in Camden Harbor. Drive a few minutes further south from Camden to Rockland for more shops and restaurants. This is also the home of the very special Farnsworth Art Museum, a great place to spend a few rainy hours. The Farnsworth is home to the Wyeth Center, one of only two centers in the country dedicated to the three generations of Wyeths: N.C., Andrew, and James Wyeth.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We took many walks and drives, had lunch twice in the community center and ate fish almost every night. After I left the island, I spent a few hours in Camden, had lunch and then went to the Farnsworth Museum. The ferry ride was lovely both days. Thanks for making us comfortable at your cottage. We have many fond memories and some great pictures!
