BEAUTIFUL CEDAR HOUSE, PERFECT LOCATION, LARGE YARD, PRIVATE,

Long Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This gorgeous, cedar-sided, 3/4-bedroom home is newly built and has all the charm and character of a classic Maine island home. Located on Long Island, a low-key fishing and lobstering community in Casco Bay, this family-friendly home is situated on one-and-a-half fenced-in private acres.

The home includes a well-stocked kitchen, combination dining and living room, and a separate TV room with a flat-screened TV. The living room has a fireplace and bookshelves filled with books and the TV room is stocked with plenty of DVDs and VHSs for the whole family. On the first floor there is a bedroom with a full-size bed and a full-bath. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a full-bath. The children’s room has two twin beds and an attached playroom with a full-size futon and plenty of games. This room can also be a fourth bedroom if needed.

One of our best features is our location! We are a five-minute walk from the ferry landing, a one minute walk to the newest cafe on the island, Captain Perry's. We are also a three to four minute walk to both general stores, and a ten-minute walk to the best beach in Casco Bay! Down the street is our post office. Around the corner is a Bed and Breakfast/Restaurant, a library and school yard with playground, and basketball and tennis courts.

Long Island has beautiful conservation trails, perfect for biking or long walks, fishing, a lobster pound, and on a clear evening, sunsets over Mount Washington. Frequent ferry service to Portland gives you access to superb restaurants, movie theaters, shopping, Freeport and L.L.Bean, an art museum, children’s museum and much more.

Week away... Long Island Maine

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely time on Long Island in this home! The house is very nice, in a shady area, close to everything. The ice cream/sandwich shop, the dock/ferry landing, the community center, Fowler's Beach, South Beach, herb/veggie farm stand, gift shop, yoga studio, the general store, etc. We hitched a ride up with hill with Chub's Blue Bus, and rented a golf cart later in the week. VERY FUN! The house slept us comfortably, we cooked out each night, made s'mores in the fire pit, biked all around, etc. Next time we hope for two weeks on Long Island.

Wonderful stay at a wonderful house

  • 5 of 5
We spent 2 very happy and relaxing weeks at this charming house on Long Island and as my son says, it was awesome! The property is just as described and the huge yard is perfect for kid adventures. (Like most of the wooded parts of the island, the yard does have mosquitos so be vigilant.) The house itself is well equipped, with bikes, a beach umbrella and a cart for picking up groceries at the wharf. Christine, the owner, couldn't be nicer: helpful, thoughtful and responsive.

The location is perfect for exploring beautiful Long Island and is a short walk to the wharf and Front Beach. Don't miss South Beach and Shark Cove; Wreck Cove has fabulous tide pools, too. Email Whole Foods in Portland to get groceries delivered via Casco Bay Lines. If you want a golf cart, reserve in advance to make sure you get one. Don't miss the Ivy Hall gift shop, run by friendly and pleasant island residents.

Explore the tide pools, walk the shoreline, romp with your dog, build fairy houses and sand encampments, gather shells and sea glass. And if it's raining, curl up with a cup of tea and a good book and relax on the screened porch. You'll feel the cool green beauty of this island soaking into you and you won't want to leave. Highly recommended.

Great House and location!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in late June and had a great time. The house has everything you need and was setup and ready even though we were a bit early! Excellent fully equipped kitchen and nice baths. All the rooms had really comfortable furniture. Three rooms with TV and DVD players and Dish TV as well as Internet access that was greatly appreciated by our 20 year old and her 16 year old cousin. The house is in a great location - easy access to the ferry, the two stores, the gift shop and the beach. Michael and Christine were wonderful hosts. The only reason I hesitate to post a 5 star review is we don't want it to become too popular and lose out on renting next year!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, along with two other couples came out to Long Island for a quick vacation. It was beyond what we were looking for and we had a wonderful time! The house was adorable, it was equipped with everything for our needs and super cozy. We didn't have the warmest of weeks but it was still very nice, considering there is a fire pit outside and a working fireplace inside as well. We biked and walked around the island, grilled outside when it was nice and enjoyed each other. The owners were very helpful with any questions we had and very nice. The photos are very accurate, nothing embellished or distorted, the house looked just as we imagined. Thanks again for letting us use your beautiful home!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed yourselves. It was a pleasure to meet you at Casco Bay Lines. What a nice surprise.

We are very happy to hear that you slept so well. I am glad that you were pleased with the coziness of the bed and the quiet of the island.

We hope to see you again,
Michael and Christine

Wonderful Home on a Wonderful Island!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great house for anyone looking to spend time on a beautiful Maine island! The house is large and comfortable, with plenty of room for a family. The owners are friendly, accessible and responsible––a lovely couple from nearby Portland. The house is clean, and has anything you or your family might be looking for during your stay––offering all the comforts of a modern home, in a rustic, rural setting. Everything stated in the description for the house is accurate, including its proximity to the beach, post office, general stores, etc. and all of the amenities listed. And the beach is truly spectacular––lots of soft sand (unlike the rockier beaches on other islands nearby), shells and sea glass, and never crowded! We enjoyed our stay immensely! We will be back!

Beautiful spot, convenient location

  • 5 of 5
We (2 adults, 2 teenagers) were very cozy and comfortable in this island home and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Bedrooms, Living room were very nice. The house is convenient to the ferry and the best beaches in Maine are a pleasant 10-15 minute walk away. Tennis, Basketball and town library/community center are even closer.

House is very quiet, clean and with the modern conveniences. Visitors should note that this home is on well/septic and you should not expect municipal water pressure but it is entirely acceptable. (By the way, the tap water is delicious and you don't need to buy/bring water to the island!)

Easy trip back to Portland for day trips to "civilization". Portland grocery stores will deliver food to the island for a very nominal charge - this worked quite well for us (we used Whole Foods).

Long Island is a wonderful community with lots of "small town" charm and activities - you will be very welcome to join in if you choose.
Highly recommended!
