This cottage is only 2.5 miles from town and looks across the road toward the tidal Arey Cove. There is nearby access to the shore via a short path on a Town Landing. It is within walking distance of the town beach and swimming in Booth’s Quarry. The cottage has a small but complete kitchen including dish washer, microwave, and gas stove. There is a Monitor heater to warm up the insulated cottage if the nights are cool. Local phone is provided with a DSL Wi-Fi capability. The TV antenna receives several channels from Bangor, although reception can be poor on wet days. There is a DVD player.
Although the floor area measures less than 1000 sq ft., the cottage has a very efficient open plan. The half bath on the first floor includes a washer and dryer. There is a very pleasant outdoor shower on the rear of the cottage and a south-facing deck for sunning yourself in the afternoon. A daybed in the corner of the living room is great for napping or comfortable relaxing with a book. The second floor has another bathroom with a small shower and two private bedrooms. The master bed room, looking out over the cove, has a queen-sized bed. The other bedroom has a double bed, two twin mattresses and, if needed, one or two Pack-N-Play cribs There is a 14’ x 14’ shed to permit storing bicycles, life jackets, or anything else that you do not wish to bring into the house. Parking is off the street. Linens are provided. The setup is ideal for a small family. Pictures of the interior are included, although the exact furniture may change depending on the guest's needs.
Most cottages on the island rent from Saturday to Saturday; however, we are going to use a Sunday to Sunday schedule to lessen the congestion on the ferry. This will also allow the visitor to attend the Saturday functions on the island (including the Flea Market) and access the city transfer station before leaving. The nominal charges are per week, plus the Maine occupancy tax. Most pets can be considered, with any additional fee negotiated when making the reservation. We do not rent to smokers. A non-refundable deposit of 10% will hold a reservation until 15 March. After 15 March a 50 % non-refundable deposit is due within 2 weeks of making the reservation along with a signed rental agreement. The balance is due upon arrival along with a refundable damage/cleaning deposit. If the visitor does not have the time or inclination to clean the cottage before leaving, arrangements can be made with owner upon arrival. The owners spend their summers in a nearby residence and are available for problems that might arise.

The owners are from Austin, Texas and have been spending summers on the island since 1999.
We very much enjoy the community atmosphere on the island and the wonderful summer weather. We lived in the cottage for 7 summers; but have recently moved to another nearby residence.
The cottage provides a relaxing life style with a great location and lovely views of the tides and bird life.
