Orr's Island Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 BR 2 BA, full kitchen, completely renovated 2005

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.

About Melinda Richter

I am a 5th generation Orr's island resident who lives 5 minutes from the Shorehouse. Our guests stay is very important to me.

Melinda Richter purchased this apartment in 1965

Why Melinda Richter chose Portland and Casco Bay Area

For those vacationers who are looking for sunsets, lobsters and the peaceful view of boats going by, then the Shorehouse is for you.

What makes this apartment unique

My husband lands lobsters at the wharf, on the property, almost daily. Kayaking and sailing are available within a 5 minute walk.
