This charming classic, newly renovated in 2011, looks like a Port Clyde Village cottage on the outside, but Lone Maple is high-end on the inside. The result is a perfect blend of timeless Maine architecture and modern necessities.
Once a simple cabin, Lone Maple has been restored to its simplistic elegance outside and brought into this century on the inside.
Located in a small cluster houses atop a hill overlooking Port Clyde Harbor, Lone Maple is just a 10 minute walk into the village.
The cottage overlooks a large lawn and from almost any window you can see the harbor water traffic, including the ferry/mailboat to Monhegan Island, go about its business all day long. The stunningly gorgeous Marshall Point Lighthouse is another 15 minute walk and guests can walk to almost anything- from the general store to the post office to dinner on the pier.
The cottage is perfectly suited for 2 people – on the second floor find a half bath and a bedroom. The bedroom has a ample closet, a queen bed and is situated in the peak of the cottage. 3 skylights (outfitted with electronic shades) and a large double hung window let in sun, the stars and a fabulous breeze off the water. The half bath has a skylight as well (also with electronic shades).
Downstairs find a living room and eating area at the front of the cottage. This is where you will find the dining area – complete with 4 chairs – and the comfortable living area. There is a couch and a chair and the living room also has a wall mounted flat screen television with cable. The cottage is also outfitted with wireless Internet connection.
This area is where you will also find the shower – this larger size stall shower is hidden behind a door and a large folding screen gives you ample privacy. Each and every window has light filtering privacy blinds as well.
The kitchen is the crowning glory of the house – aside from the location and view – and is truly gourmet. You will be stunned at the caliber of kitchen found tucked inside this cottage. A full sized refrigerator, dishwasher, double wall oven and a induction cook top. Chantal cookware is also provided – this is a kitchen worthy of a top chef (and those who like to pretend they are!)
Outside, find a small deck off the kitchen and a basic gas grill. There are two Adirnodak chairs at the front of the cottage, overlooking the water.
The neighborhood is friendly, the location ideal and the accommodations comfortable.
