Milbridge House Rental Photos and Description
2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4 comfortably
Located at the end of a peninsula, on Ficketts Point, with the ocean on three sides and a spectacular open view of the islands from the living room. This house is across the water from the town of Milbridge and has access to a sandy beach in back and a rocky beach in front.
Very quiet and very private.
You get sunset views over the water on one side and sunrise views on the other. If you like the sound of the ocean waves at night you will love this comfortable two bedroom home with a picture window and window seat in the living room looking out at the islands. Both beaches are private and easily accessible. You can launch a boat at the marina a mile down the road and cruise around the coast. There is nice kayaking and canoeing all around too. The house is great for a husband and wife private getaway or a retreat for vacationers wanting a quiet and scenic place to forget their worries and just relax. Consider this simply a cozy house with plenty of room inside and truly spectacular views.
5th Season: This is the fifth summer we are renting out our summer home. The house is, and has been, immaculately clean. It is supplied with all the amenities. We have wireless high speed internet and cable t.v. too. The house is surrounded by water on three sides. There are two very accessible beaches, both private, included on the property. This is a very peaceful area situated at the tip of a peninsula. This is the last house at the very end. The second-to-last house back up the road is my fathers and he/we are available to assist with any needs and advice on what to see, where to go, etc.
This house accommodates 4 (6 if you want to put a couple children on the roll away beds). The house is great for a husband and wife getaway or a couples' retreat or for vacationers wanting a quiet and scenic place to forget their worries and just relax.
All new appliances and fully outfitted for a restful vacation.
