The best of Maine is available for your vacation. Ease of modern living mixed with the rustic woodland only Maine can provide. THIS IS NOT A WATERFRONT HOME. This house is an oasis unto itself, snuggled into the woods, surrounded by wildlife and mature evergreens, you cannot see the neighbors. Yet you can walk (or drive or ride one of our bikes) to the best white sand uncrowded beaches on Casco Bay. Bask in the sun and swim at south beach, collect rocks on pebble beach, follow trails to hidden coves, investigate tidal pools, dive off the pier with the daring youth, or watch the lobster men work their traps. Long Island is only 2 1/2 miles long and 1/2 mile wide, with a speed limit of 20 MPH and the safest, friendliest people you will ever meet. The house is large and handles 10 people and guests easily. Kitchen, dining room, living room, two full baths, two large bedrooms with queen beds are on the first floor, the upstairs is unfinished with two double beds and two twin beds.

People were buying up the Maine Coast at an incredible rate. Working waterfront and public access to the coast seemed to be at risk. We wanted to preserve a part of the coast for our extended family.
Just to get to stop. It begins with the ferry ride, that sets you up for a time shift. There is just something about the island. The very properties that make it irritating, like the ferry schedule, are what makes it feel like you are continents away from your daily life grind. Everyone there has let go for a while, in a deep way. Walking the beaches and the inland trails, checking out the beaver dam. Biking around and meeting new people or finding new adventures. Of course the sunsets.
The city of Portland has all the amenities of a city and is a ferry ride away.
