Overview

Islesboro Island House Rental Photos and Description

9 Bedroom, 5 Bathrooms and sleeps 12

On Islesboro's eastern shore sits the elegant nine-bedroom Edward Adams Cottage summer home. The house is sited on a rocky knoll and is approached by a winding pathway of granite steps which lead up to a stone terrace with sweeping views of the bay and beyond. All newly renovated with state of the art appliances, eat-in kitchen, the house boasts six working fireplaces, five baths and will easily sleep twelve. Grand views overlooking beautifully manicured grounds, with private waterfront and picnic area for lobster bakes. Satellite TV, Wi-Fi internet. This cottage is easily accessible by a 20 minute ferry ride off the coast of Maine.

Islesboro, with its many harbors and coves, was once home to the largest commercial shipping fleet in the bay during the 19th century. Following the Civil War, however, Islesboro developed as a Gilded Age resort community, and many large summer homes were built by the wealthy. Their large yachts cruised and raced throughout the Gulf of Maine. The town remains a famous upper-class enclave and well known summer colony. Islesboro is also a year-round island community, three miles out to sea by a state operated ferry from Lincolnville Beach. The year round population grows from approximately 600 in the winter to several times that during the summer months. The island offers boating activities, with some of the best sailing waters in the world. There are many cultural opportunities, art shows and musical and educational programs especially during the summer. The new Islesboro Community Center with its state of the art fitness center offers programs of all kinds for the community at large, including dinners weekly and special events for all the locals. Two general stores offer groceries, fresh fish and lobsters and a large selection of wines and spirits. There are public tennis courts and a Big Tree Community Boating center that will accommodate any beginner sailor, and will entice even the better sailors with their fleet of boats and lasers.

  • children welcome
