About the property

- 3 BR, 2 BA, Sleeps 10.

The best of Maine is available for your vacation. Ease of modern living mixed with the rustic woodland only Maine can provide.THIS IS NOT A WATERFRONT HOME.This house is an oasis unto itself, snuggled into the woods, surrounded by wildlife and mature evergreens, you cannot see the neighbors. Yet you can walk (or drive or ride one of our bikes) to the best white sand uncrowded beaches on Casco Bay. Bask in the sun and swim at south beach, collect rocks on pebble beach, follow trails to hidden coves, investigate tidal pools, dive off the pier with the daring youth, or watch the lobster men work their traps. Long Island is only 2 1/2 miles long and 1/2 mile wide, with a speed limit of 20 MPH and the safest, friendliest people you will ever meet. The house is large and handles 10 people and guests easily. Kitchen, dining room, living room, two full baths, two large bedrooms with queen beds are on the first floor, the upstairs is unfinished with two double beds and two twin beds.

This provides a huge space for bunk living and has two double beds and two single beds along with an area to visit with table and chairs. There are two fold away beds if needed for extra guests.

Great island retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered for a wonderful week in October. This home was so comfy. The kitchen was well stocked. The linens were ample. The home is really very spacious. The back yard was lovely and wooded,a few second walk brings a beautiful water view. We walked to a secluded beach,took in a few amazing sunsets,all a few minutes walk from the home. It is very private down just down a little lane. I would recommend this home to anyone,but especially if you have kids that need room to explore! I would definitely return for another stay!

The house is roomy and very comfortable, with a well-equipped kitchen, nice deck, bicycles, a car, and heat! Everything went seamlessly and our host was flexible and generous. The house is tucked down a wooded lane and is in close walking distance to a great sunset-watching spot and a beautiful nature trail that leads to an incredible secret cove. We couldn't have had a better stay and can't wait to go back!

Summer Vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed here last year and completely enjoyed our stay. It was so nice to be close to the beaches yet have our privacy. We loved staying somewhere modern. So nice to come back from the beach and take a nice shower. Great deck to relax on! We look forward to going back!

Park on the mainland and begin a journey you will not soon forget. The ferry ride in itself is an absolute delight, not to mention the excitement you feel when you disembark and realize you don't need to return for a week! Once settled on the island, you can take the ferry to all the other islands in Casco Bay, later in your visit, without purchasing another ticket (some have golf courses). Of course you can also return to the mainland for a day in Portland for some of the greatest restaurants anywhere, not to mention shopping. There are also sports events, music concerts, museums and all other cultural events that a large city supplies. If you are worried about staying later than the ferry runs, just make a date with one of the bay taxi's for your return trip home. The island itself boasts of the best beaches of all the Casco Bay islands. There is also a restaurant, bed and breakfast, two general stores, gift shop, library, tennis, and conservation trails on the island itself.

Other Activities: City activities and all amenities are available in Portland, by ferry. Museums, concerts, shops, theater, malls, fine restaurants, etc.
