Swans Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy a quiet retreat in this luxury home overlooking Jericho Bay. Located on the secluded west side of Swan’s Island, this custom Lindal post and beam home has everything you need for a restful escape.

Completed in June of 2006, this comfortable home welcomes you with modern amenities including a gourmet kitchen furnished with Viking appliances, central air and heating to name a few. The master suite boasts a king size bed, Jacuzzi tub, steam shower, heated bathroom tile floor and french doors leading to a private balcony. Two additional bedrooms feature queen size beds, fine linens, full baths with heated floors and cozy sitting areas to enjoy floor-to-ceiling water views.

A panoramic view from the great room is one of the home's highlights. From windows reaching 30 feet above to the cathedral ceiling you can see from Jericho Bay to Deer Isle and beyond. The wood-burning fireplace in the great room features a large granite hearth and soaring chimney. You can enjoy spectacular sunsets by the warmth of a fire or from one of the home's two decks.

The sitting area above the great room is a peaceful spot to read a book, watch a movie or just soak in the view.

Walk down a wooded path to the water and explore the pure natural beauty of coastal Maine. Whether you prefer to venture out in a kayak, stroll along the shore to watch the seals frolicking in the surf, or just relax on the sun-drenched rocks, this is the perfect spot to unwind. Fine Sands Beach is a 5-minute drive from the property, if you would like to put your feet in the sand or take a brisk swim. For those who enjoy feasting on lobster, there is no shortage on the island. Fresh, reasonably-priced Maine lobster can be found a short drive away at the Fisherman’s Co-op.

Whether you are seeking adventure or looking to get away from it all, Swans Island is an unspoiled gem with abounding natural beauty.

Swans Island is a 30 minute ferry ride from Bass Harbor. Please check out the Swans Island Ferry schedule for information on time and availability.

Lovely home--unfair owners

  • 2 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our five nights at this home, but we were unjustly accused of damaging a part of the kitchen cabinet and the front door: we did neither. We have rented numerous times on VRBO in CA and NC, and we have never been charged for damage we did not do. No inquiries were made to us about these charges; the owners simply sent us our deposit check minus what they thought would compensate for the "damages" we did not do; they also included a very unfriendly letter.

We are both over 65 and professional people; only the two of us spent time in this 3-bedroom house, using only the first floor. Not only were we accused of damages but of leaving a dirty house and having used too much firewood ostensibly because they said we had not built the fires as instructed: again, we followed all guidelines for the fires despite their unfounded assumption; we ran the dishwasher when we left, placed the used towels in the laundry room, and cleaned the kitchen. The TV also didn't work, and when we called, they simply said they needed a new system, but hadn't upgraded yet, so we missed seeing our Sunday football.

Overall, we were appalled by their accusations. We would not recommend renting this house not because it's not peaceful, commodious, and relaxing, but because the owners are unjust.

Fabulous Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 weeks, first was a romantic getaway, second we invited our daughter and 2 granddaughters, ages 10 and 9. Excellent time of adventure for all, with hiking, looking for seals, watching the lobster boats, cooking in the gourmet kitchen, and enjoying family time together! Home is well laid out, offering multi-generational accommodations with ample private and communal spaces. Great place to unwind and unplug! Highly recommend!

Even better than expected

  • 5 of 5

The photos just don't do this home justice. It was the perfect getaway with every amenity and spectacular views. The owners were great to deal with.

Swan's Island is a great spot for hiking and kayaking.

fabulous

We had a wonderful, relaxing, stress free vacation. The home is exactly as stated and the care and love for the home is evident. it was hard to leave after a week! We would stay here again if we return to Swan's Island. Thank you for some wonderful new memories.

Quiet Haven

  • 5 of 5

The house looked even better than in the photos, if you can believe it. It is situated on a quiet island and we watched lobster boats and a four-mast sailing ship go by as we sat in the high-ceilinged living room and had our coffee that first morning. It didn't take me long to wind down. Each room is thoughtfully set up (matching soft towels, nice beds, beautiful views) in a that way that makes you feel the hosts care about your comfort and enjoyment. The kitchen was well stocked with good quality pots and pans and nice appliances.

The house is surrounded by forest and our kids (9 & 11) loved being in the woods (they built a whole fairy village out of seaweed, moss, bark, etc…) Most days, we explored the island and took long walks through towering trees and marshland to end up on beautiful empty beaches. The nearby rock quarry was a great hit for the whole family when we wanted to swim in warmer water. We ate lobster on a picnic table near some roadside stand that was delicious. All in all, the time we spent at this home was wonderful and relaxing and I hope to get back there again!

Swans Island Summer 2012

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, well thought out home. The property was in pristine condition, inside and out. The view of the lobster boats in the morning and sunsets in the evening provided hours of relaxation. The owners were very helpful with the information packet they delivered to our home previous to our departure to their home. We could not of asked for a better vacation experience.
