Beautiful, oceanfront cottage with 300 feet of beach and large yard. Wonderful porch to view great sunsets! This location is close enough to Portland and Freeport by ferry service to enjoy shopping and restaurants, yet located on Chebeague Island off a private and secluded cottage road for total relaxation.
Activities include biking, kayaking, relaxing in a hammock, and only a short 1/2 mile to recreation center with an outdoor pool, tennis courts, and fitness facility. Adults can lounge on the beach while children search for hermit crabs and sand dollars! Clamming licenses are available as well. Four adult bicycles and one - 2 person kayak are included in the rental. There is a challenging 9 hole golf course on the island which we have a set of clubs for you to use and you can rent additional sets at the club house.
One bedroom downstairs with queen bed and twin bed. Two bedrooms upstairs with large dormers for great water views. Upstairs bedrooms include a room with a double bed featuring matching hand painted antique furniture. The second upstairs bedroom comes with two twin beds.
Full kitchen with all amenities and cooking utensils. Amenities include a stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, blender, and a large lobster/clam cooker. Propane grill provided as well.
The living room has two sofas, television, dvd, vcr, books and several movies. A wood stove is also in the room.
The cottage has a large tiled bathroom with tub/shower and double sinks. Outdoor shower to rinse off sand and saltwater.
Many recent renovations make this a wonderful and comfortable cottage for your vacation enjoyment.

We are Maine residents and live on nearby Cousin's Island. We enjoy outdoor activities and being on the ocean. This is the best summer state in the nation for a vacation in our opinion.
The cottage is close by and very accessible, even though it is on an island. Just far enough away to feel like you have traveled to a vacation get away yet close enough to Portland that you have all the city amenities with shopping and great restaurants.
The local community is fantastic. Between summer people and the 300 year round residents, you have a healthy mix of fishermen, trades, and vacationers.
There are great beaches to explore and a low tide walk over a long sandbar to Little Chebeague Island that is a must. Deer Point has hiking on a rocky shoreline that is simply quintessential Maine scenery.
Biking on the island is very fun to explore the 3 mile by 5 mile landscape. Riding to the Clam Shack for lunch, dinner, or ice cream is a given. Heading to the Chebeague Inn for a sunset beverage on the porch or a very nice dinner inside or out. Stopping by the small island market is always a treat to see what is going on with island events and usually running into island characters.
The local library has many books and movies to borrow and also has wi-fi access just in case you do need to check in on your daily life.
