One in a million property. People rave about enjoying the awesome, pristine view, with no bugs even in the evening.
There are no mosquitoes we have never found a tick. They love the total privacy of the many acres, and the spacious living room. They always remark on the comfortable furniture and beds and well equipped kitchen that includes spices, etc. The cove is calm for kayaking.
Million dollar view, calm water, on owners' 7 acres and then on huge estate for private walking, biking. kayaks, bikes,
fully equipped kitchen, huge tv, DVD Library, books, toys, near great playground and tennis.
This house is situated on a bluff of 7 acres overlooking Ryder Cove. It is truly a beautiful
setting. Yet,just a short trail takes you to a
long beach & 2 kayaks to explore the cove.It is
well protected with calm waters and a number of
yachts at anchor.One must travel by ferry from
Lincolnville to Islesboro Island. This adds an
element of excitement and also a feeling of truly escaping the hectic pace of the mainland.
The island is home to only 600 people for 10 months of the year while the population expands
to 2,000 during the 2 months of summer. There are beautiful beaches,unspoiled scenic trails and islands, beautiful homes (mansions called
"cottages") and some well known shipyards. Fresh lobster is available. A charter sailboat
excursion was a big treat. Plan to experience
life as it once existed 2 generations ago. Everybody waves to you while passing in their
car, and there exists a close connection between the native islanders and their environment
It was hard to return to reality after the most relaxing vacation imaginable. Words cannot express the beauty that we encountered with every visit to the huge porch, overlooking the water. The fresh air rocked us to sleep night after night. Our stay consisted of 3 generations & we felt so fortunate to have the opportunity to reconnect in this magnificant location. The description of the property is exact & the condition was immaculate. I have never rented from an online source & Dick was with me every step of the way. We were provided with every resource for the island, as well as its historical background.This location forces you to sit back & remember what's important in life...good company & the beauty of nature at its best! This was simply a one of a kind vacation that I would recommend to anyone wanting to get away from it all.
Many thanks to Lorraine and Dick for sharing their wonderful home! Private and secluded yet easily accessable. Very clean and comfortable. Spectacular view of the cove. Pictures don't do it justice. A short hike to the water's edge in addition to other hiking opportunities. The perfect place for peace, quiet and downtime. A great big thanks for being so easy and pleasant to work with. Your lists, maps, and detailed directions as well as the amenities you provided made my week so easy and stress-free. Better than I had anticipated and exactly what I needed. Best and most relaxing vacation I've ever had. I can't thank you enough! I hope to make it back again. Take care!
