TAKE A FERRY TO THE ISLAND OF YOUR DREAMS.

Islesboro Island Barn Rental Photos and Description

Barn, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Welcome to your vacation home - a nearly new barn style summer home on Broad Cove near the ferry. Imagine yourself relaxing on the deck at the end of a busy day while your kids entertain themselves on the lawn and in the field leading to the cove. On the shore is a rocky beach and deep water anchorage (w/heavy mooring). The waterfront includes the use of a dinghy and a float. Or, on cooler days, curl up in front of the fireplace with a good book(well stocked library) while you look out through the french doors.

On the first floor, you will enjoy an open living room w/fireplace, dining room, kitchen. which is well supplied and includes the basic food needs: salt, pepper, flour, sugar, lobster pot, etc. Or, move your meals outdoors for al fresco dining on the deck. There is a half bath on the first floor.

On the second floor, the master bedroom includes a queen sized bed with down comforter, the second has twin beds and and the third has bunk beds. A full bath, well supplied with linens(including swimming towels), has full amenties including a washer and dryer.The playroom includes VCR, DVD player and plenty of tapes and discs. No TV reception, sorry! The loft has a ladder and a wonderful hang-out for the kids or air mattress for sleeping.

Getting to Islesboro is part of the enchantment of this island - you arrive by car ferry which leaves frequently from Lincolnville Beach. This is definitely a summer cottage with a get-away-from-the-world feeling. You will find the comforts of home without the hassle of the work-a-day world. However, you will have connection with wifi and phone.

Islesboro is ten miles long and a mile wide. It offers two grocery stores(w/liquor), a library, bookstore, gift/paper/lunch store and the snack shack at the ferry. You will also find a golf club, public tennis courts and also a kids sailing program. Biking is great - especially to the snack shack which is only 1/4 mile from the house and offering the best sunsets in Maine!

A day trip to Camden, Fort Knox in Bucksport or even antiquing along Rte. 1 will round out your vacation in Maine.

We are from Ipswich, MA and have been coming to Maine for many years. Roger first came with his parents when he was ten and didn't return for fifteen years when he brought his wife. Later they returned with their three children.

We are now semi-retired. Roger, a Brown graduate, was a contractor and now does preservation consulting, most recently at Old South Church in Boston. Maddie, a graduate of Montserrat College of Art, is a printmaker and fiber artist.

We both think this island and surrounding Penobscot Bay is one of the most beautiful places in the world. It's a place where the biggest going ons are the Art Shows at the Historical Society. Or, no malls.
