This fabulous two story, four bedroom, 1.5 bath cape-style home offers spectacular water views from both floors. The house will comfortably accommodate a large group or an extended family. Magnolia House offers an open floor plan, which is flooded with natural light through the large picture windows and many skylights. Spacious, well stocked kitchen makes cooking a pleasure. Sun yourself on one of three private decks overlooking the beautifully designed perennial gardens,or enjoy the handcrafted stone fireplace on a cool evening.
Separate media room offers quiet space for reading, relaxing, or family movie night with flatscreen and Netflix. House has several high end bluetooth stereos for streaming music on the high speed wifi. For extra guests, there is a full size futon and a single pull out bed in addition to the bedrooms. Hopefully you won't need it, but there is a large desk and office space on the second floor. Unlike many Monhegan properties, we are more than happy to consider pets.
Just past the Trailing Yew on Lobster Cove Road, Magnolia House is only minutes from Fish and Swim Beaches, galleries and the rest of the village in one direction and Lobster Cove in the other direction.
If you've never been to Monhegan Island, it's difficult to describe. It's welcoming, rustic, and for lack of a better word, magical. I have gone for many years; through my own childhood and now with my children. The Island still holds the same charm. This year, however, was our best trip ever due to the warm and beautiful home of Shaw and Elizabeth. This home is a gem - homey and spacious - a perfect combination of "island cape" with all the modern conveniences of mainland living. Tons of room, indoors and out, for a full family, with unique and creative details throughout. Great for kids and adults. And the owners are tremendously helpful, gracious, and available. I would recommend this rental to everyone...but won't, in an effort to keep the Island and this house a secret gem!
This artists’ house has incredible charm and lots of originality. I loved all the different views from the windows, especially observing the changes throughout the day from the big picture windows. The large fireplace gives the house a very cozy atmosphere, and there are plenty of opportunities to just step out onto one of the many decks. This house is a real gem to stay in.
We had the pleasure of staying in the Stiler Berk home during the last week of June and had such a wonderful time! The weather did not always cooperate with us, but we did not worry because this lovely home kept us comfortable and cozy and happy when the rain came. Everything about this house is unique - from the stone fireplace to the artistic charms throughout to the great deck areas. It really is a lovely and well maintained property. And the location is fantastic, right between the village and Lobster Cove. We're looking forward to returning next year!
Last year, after visiting Monhegan, for a couple of days with our family of 5 and falling in love with the island, we decided to extend our stay for a week. The Stiler/Berk house was a perfect choice for us. The house is clean,comfortable and large enough for family members to find their own space. The gardens are spectacular and the sunny back deck provides a perfect venue for relaxing, barbeques, etc. My wife and I claimed the upstairs bedroom which, on waking, provides a panoramic view across the water to the Camden hills and beyond.
The house has every amenity, including hi-speed internet (much to the delight of my teenagers). We are looking forward to a longer stay next year.
We have stayed at this house many times and it always feels like our island home away from home. With our large group, the home has room for every one plus a beautiful big fireplace that we love sitting around a crackling fire in the evenings (firewood provided). The house has a wonderful contemporary vibe, very sunny and bright and clean. Host is always so gracious and thoughtful-- fresh flowers from the garden are arranged in the rooms when we arrive. The beds are super comfy. We go during the bird migration and the nearby trees host a number of fantastic sightings right outside the back deck at her bird feeders...we've seen dozens of scarlet tanagers, bob-o-links, indigo buntings, and countless beautiful warblers without even leaving the property!
Monhegan Island is situated 10 miles from the nearest mainland accessible only by ferry. The island is approximately 1 mile square. Beautiful cliffs & woods, spectacular sunsets over the bay, 17 miles of trails, a charming village, artists studios and galleries, gift shops & restaurants are just a few of the attractions. The village encompasses a third of the island while the remainder is preserved in its natural state. There are no cars on the island. Miles of hiking trails take you through magical woodlands to spectacular cliffs and ocean views. Hiking, visiting artists studios, fishing, swimming, boating, birdwatching, and kayaking are a few of the things the island offers.
Most importantly it’s a time to slow down and unwind and enjoy its natural beauty casual ambience.
The island also has a wonderful lighthouse, art museum, library, general store and several restaurants and a coffee house.
Monhegan Island is still one of the country's foremost artists colonies, and offers some of the most dramatic scenery and best birding on the east coast.
