Rackliff Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Two Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Simple For Easy Living Yet Elegant, Artist Owner
Quintessential Maine! Designed & decorated with care by a well-known artist. She fell in love with the property and dreamed of living there one day. The cottage is simply elegant, easy to care for, warm, and inviting. You will feel like a welcome guest in a private home that you have all to yourself.
The site is a spectacular point of ocean front land with a beach, only for island residents, next door and a southeast view. Let your cares melt away as you gaze out over the sea. Smell the salt air, the balsam fir and the wild roses. Feel the cool breezes and, for the more adventurous, the invigorating shock of the cold ocean water. Listen to the soothing sound of the waves, the cry of gulls, and the sound of the lobster boats as they come and go to Atwood's Lobster across the bay. At dinner time you will start to see the twinkle of the lights, the glow of the evening sun reflecting off the boats on their moorings, and possibly the full moon rising over the water.
The cottage is fully equipped. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Well behaved dogs are welcome.
There is lots to see and do for people of all ages. The local restaurants are outstanding and if you like cooking you will love the quality and variety of foods and drink.

Why Crystal Daggett Robinson of Daggett Builders, Inc chose Rackliff Island
The owner fell in love with Rackliff Island and this particular property. She wanted, more than anything, to design the perfect little cottage for it. You could be one of the first to stay in it.
The view is fabulous. The setting is serene. The cottage is tucked away, barely visible from the road, nestled in a lightly wooded point of land that sits directly on the ocean, facing southeast. It looks out toward Two Bush Lighthouse, several islands, and the charming little fishing community of Spruce Head. A shared beach and a float for island residents, visible only through the foliage, abuts the property on the east. A little path winds around the property, from the deck off of the kitchen, around the upper edge of the shoreline, past your own private picnic area, and over toward the beach. Large boulders on the water’s edge and within the property are typical of the rugged beauty for which Maine is famous.
It is the sort of property that inspires people, young and old, to let their imaginations run wild and to let their cares fly away with the sea breezes.
What makes this cottage unique
The cottage is small yet allows for privacy. It is perfect for two couples or a small family and is also intimate enough for one or two people. The two bedrooms are separated. One is on the main floor while the other is upstairs. There will be a pull out bed for one extra person, if needed. The design is simple for easy living yet elegant. Your well behaved dog is welcome.
Guestbook comments from the manager
This adorable cottage, tucked amongst the trees and rocks beside the sea is a true delight. Nothing has been overlooked. What a perfect little haven this is!
Everything I needed is here - the smell of salt air, the sound of the waves on the Maine rocks, the cry of osprey overhead, and the mystical call of a loon in the night. I will return again and again to this peaceful little cottage by the sea.
