Our grandparents built this cabin after living in Norway for several years.

This photo shows one of the original Norwegians, our mother, enjoying the beach below the sod roofed house.

Ingrid purchased this cabin in 1953

Our grandmother came to this island as a child, and returned when her husband retired. This cabin was the guest house, custom built to her exacting specifications, but we spent many happy summers here, and enjoy our own children in this beautiful place.

There's something about feeling as if you're in Europe, after just a drive and a ferry ride away. The cabin is both rustic and ornate; the carvings exquisite, the built-in furniture so well crafted and unusual, the views are beautiful, the beach combing can keep you busy for hours.

Nothing else like it in the whole world...

...except maybe in Norway. But then you wouldn't have the extraordinary experience of an island in Maine with views of famed Penobscott Bay! This property is unlike any place you have ever been: the all Norwegian pine house, shaggy grass & wildflower roof plus antique furnishings is a living "museum" of Scandinavian handicrafts going back to the Vikings. Every night while you are sleeping the trolls dance about the place - we are absolutely sure of that fact. Sunrise & sunset, hell, all day long in every possible kind of weather scenario, the mood is other-wordly colors & sounds. It will be your favorite get-away EVER! (North Haven is fun, too, but you just won't want to leave the Cove...)

Owner's Response: All true! I just want to let everyone know that the trolls are harmless! They feel at home and give the cabin soul! The house is about 4 miles from the town of North Haven and it is very easy to just stay out on Crabtree Point where are you and relax far away from everything! It is like living in a gingerbread house, a fabled and ornate folk art treasure chest. It is very unique and very beautiful!

Many of the islanders are lobstermen and fishermen, and fresh food from the sea is always available. Wild berry picking, mushroom hunting and sea glass collecting are popular past times. Migratory bird populations are very evident all summer long, and bald eagles are known to nest nearby.
