MAINE ISLAND COTTAGE- OCEANSIDE, FABULOUS VIEW.

Chebeague Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Two bedrooms, a full bathroom, deck, sleeps 5

A separate kind of place, on Chebeague Island in Casco Bay. Moody and beautiful coast with traditional Maine summertime fun- Boating, swimming, kayaking, lobster-eating, clamming, etc. and then some. You are in the middle of Chebeague where everything is within walking distance. Bring a good book or two. There's lots to do, but if you just want to lay back, then, that's what it is... with a view that cannot be beat. There's sensational local food at the hotel & local carryout, warm summer days in the ocean air, and clear island nights (we hope). The 'Red Cottage' is a simple, but nicely supplied old Chebeague camp.

Chebeague Island: This is the largest Casco Bay island not connected by bridge to the mainland. Chebeague's history includes Native Americans for whom the island was a favorite summer spot. Europeans and then Americans have inhabited the islands for over 300 years. The fishing community is historic and authentic, and still part and parcel of the island economy. In fact you can get live lobsters delivered to your door. This is truly the best tasting lobster. Indeed it is. Our view is of the outer islands and 'Halfway Light' lighthouse, and the edge of the Atlantic ocean. The daytime ranges from fogbound gray to brilliant blue sky and sea. At sunset the islands light up one by one. At night, the moonlight's reflection pours through the islands like spilled milk. During the day, running, walking, cycling, beach combing, exploring nearby islands, swimming, golf, tennis, boating, and reading are all good things to do. Being off the mainland is in itself an excellent thing.

Drive , walk, or bicycle: Chebeague is small enough (1.5 x 4.5 miles) to get around easily without a car. If you want to bring your car over be sure to make arrangements early! Chebeague Transit is one way to have your car barged over.

Other activities: Although we don't supply the boat- sailing, motoring, and kayaking here is the best.

There are tennis courts available for a fee

There is a community pool at the Rec Center for a fee

This is a fabulous holiday cottage with everything you could ask for and more! The view is spectacular and whether its gloriously sunny out or pelting rain you will have a great stay.
The cottage is very well equipped and for someone who loves to cook it is a dream with its gas stove and everything you need in a kitchen.
I would highly recommend Chebeague Island for it's beautiful landscapes, lovely friendly people and a perfect place to get away from it all. There is even an organic farm were you can buy fresh veg to go with your delivered to the door lobster!

Thank you for a lovely holiday well worth the eight hour drive from Ottawa Canada.
