A PERFECT MAINE HOUSE 'HOPE COTTAGE' ON FOX ISLAND THOROUGHFARE

North Haven Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

'Hope Cottage' is a lovely, professionally decorated summer cottage built directly on the rocks. The original house was built in 1901 and has many charming details. The spectacular views of the Fox Island Thorofare and outer islands of Penobscot Bay cannot be beat. At high tide, the water comes under the house and one truly feels as if you are afloat! Dates in July, 2013 still open! A deep water dock and moorings are available.

The main cottage has a central living room, with plenty of seating for entertaining or simply relaxing by the fire. There is a fully equipped kitchen with up-to-date dishwasher, fridge and stove/oven. Off the kitchen is the best dining room on North Haven!

There are 3 comfortable bedrooms - a master bedroom with queen bed, and two bedrooms with 2 twin beds in each in the main house.

One full size bathroom with shower, tub and double vanity accomodates all your guests with ease.

In addition there is a 'Back Cottage' with two bedrooms, each with one twin bed, a shared full bath and a washer and dryer. This back cottage is perfect for additional family, friends or babysitter.

Wireless internet access is available in both houses.

Another treat to the house is a newly built outdoor fireplace which is a great place to have an authentic lobster bake, grill up some steaks or cook s'mores every night!!!

Renters have access to a deep-water dock and mooring. Bring your sailboat or motorboat to explore the amazing islands nearby. North Haven also is home to a semi-private, nine-hole golf course that has been written up in Golf Magazine as one of the best public nine hole courses in the US (and is within walking distance of the house).

The quaint village of North Haven is a 10 minute walk, or 5 minute bicycle ride. It is home to a newly built community center which is the hub of activity all year long. There are a few small restaurants to dine at for lunch and dinner. North Haven is also home of some very talented artists including Eric Hopkins, Angela Adams and Herbert Parsons (Google them for more info.).

Enjoy true peace and quiet! Or fill the house with family and friends and enjoy spectacular sunrises, cool nights and warm sunny days lounging on the porch.

Best kept secret!!

  • 4 of 5
We loved this place! We brought our 2 kids and a babysitter. The weather was almost perfect. We had one foggy day, but it was a perfect time to settle in by the fire and read books and color. The rocks were great to explore and we walked or biked into town every day. We left Hope Cottage feeling rested, and with lots of "treasures", ie periwinkle shells, sea glass, mussel shells all found on the property. Next time we will bring bike seats for our kids so we can explore the island more by bike, and look into renting a small boat for a day or two. The outer islands we could see looked inviting.

Visitor from another island

Visited in mid june. A more perfect location could not be found. The three seals that entertained us from the waterside porch were wonderful and at no cost. Does Hollywood know this?? Keep it a secret. Loved the place. Was there June 14 to June 21, 2012 Sincerely Jerry Fernald P.S. Dont often get a 90 degree day in June on the island.
