Located on beautiful Orr's Island, this home is set at the waters edge. A deep water dock in Garrison Cove with open views to Merriconegan Sound and Casco Bay beyond is yours for a glorious and relaxing vacation. The 'Shore house' was originally built as Jenny Prince's store that serviced the many travelers on steamboats coming to the 'Islands' for summer vacations at the end of the 1800's and into the early 1900's. The original charm remains but all of the modern conveniences are there for you to enjoy. This home has been completely renovated from stem to stern. World famous Cooks Lobster House is directly across the cove, and the only remaining 'Crib Stone Bridge' in the world can be seen from the kitchen windows. Enjoy day trips, swimming, fishing, boating and the charm of coastal Maine at its best.
I am a 5th generation Orr's island resident who lives 5 minutes from the Shorehouse. Our guests stay is very important to me.

My husband lands lobsters at the wharf, on the property, almost daily. Kayaking and sailing are available within a 5 minute walk.
Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are a 3 hour drive, Boothbay Harbor is a 1 hour drive, Wiscassett is a 45 minutes drive, Beautiful Brunswick Maine, 20 minutes north on Rt. 24 offers great restaurants, summer music theater, museums, shopping, community concerts, movie theaters and more. On 'The Islands' you can enjoy boating, fishing,sailing, swimming, rocky and sandy beaches, dining, antique shopping, or just relax on the dock and watch the resident lobsterman return with his days catch.
