Swans Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8-10)

This classic Maine summer home is located steps away from a sandy beach in a quiet cove, perfect for swimming and for young children. Grassy meadows surround the house, which has views of the ocean on three sides. The kitchen/dining/living area is comfortable and light. A wood stove can warm the house on cool evenings and in colder months. In the summer, doors open to a wrap-around porch with built in benches for dining outside. The first-floor corner bedroom has a double bed and views of the ocean on two sides. Another bedroom has a separate entrance onto the porch and is separated from the main house by the entryway. Upstairs two bedrooms sleep two each. The second floor front bedroom offers views of the ocean and surrounding island. Twenty-five acres of meadow, woods, a small pond, and pink granite shorefront invite leisurely afternoon strolls.

A small grocery store is just a five-minute’s walk away. Free wireless service is available at the town office, just fifteen-minute’s away by foot, or five minutes by car.

The island features rocky and sandy beaches, spectacular hikes, fishing, and swimming in a local quarry. During summer months the town offers frequent “Town Breakfasts,” concerts, and other community events.

A second house located on the property, the Farm House, may be rented together with the Shore House for larger gatherings. Please see the listing for 'Oceanside Farm House, Spectacular Views'VRBO #287076.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had on Swans Island. The Shore House was just perfect and we loved everything about it. The children spent a lot of time at Carryover Beach collecting shells and trading them on the porch afterwards. We had poetry and storytelling contests on the foggy days and great swimming and hiking on the sunnier ones. The library was also a big hit with everybody. We will definitely be back - hopefully soon!

Thanks for sharing this special place,
