Clark Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description
4 Bedrooms 1.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6 adults plus 2 children in bunk-beds
Located on the mainland at the Ocean's edge in a beautiful cove looking out at Clark Island and the open sea, our cottage was built in the classic rustic Maine style of the mid twentieth Century. The Township of Clark Island is one of a group of small Towns located on the St. George Peninsula. The peninsula is alive with boaters, bicycle clubs on vacation and legions of kayakers visiting Penobscot Bay. From the little lobstering village of Port Clyde at one end (with daily ferry service to Monhegan Island) to the Town of Rockland at the other end (in 2009 voted the second best small town to live in in the USA by Budget Travel; ) the whole area is considered the heart of mid-coast Maine. At the foot of the road the cottage is located on, there is the Craignair Inn of Clark Island, with a gourmet restaurant. This area is why they call Maine 'Vacationland, where life is the way it ought to be.' Call (207) 593 - 7183 or (978) 201 3954

Guestbook comments from the owner
Where to begin other than to tell you how very much we enjoyed the cottage!? As I mentioned to you on the phone, we have been renting in the area on and off for the past 20 years and have never experienced such bliss. The view is fantastic and we felt we were almost on a house boat. We love the light and your choice of white furniture
is perfect. ( Many of our former cottages were dark with brown panelling.) The furniture is very comfortable, again not always the case, and having a TV was indeed an extra bonus.
The best part of all is the screened-in porch. We lived out there and have never found one in previous cottages.
I could go on and on, but suffice to say, we are thrilled that we found you and would love to return next summer. I am trying to see if we could manage two weeks rather than one.
We send good wishes to you and your family and we will be in touch!
