Why Phil Crossman chose MidCoast and Penobscot Bay

Located just off Main Street, the lush lawn overlooking Carver's Pond allows a sense of privacy while being just steps from the hustle and bustle of Downstreet.You can relax in the comfort of an Adirondak chair while people watching. Vinalhaven Candy Co, The Harbor Gawker, and Homeport are all within view of the cottage, with other restaurants and attractions being a simple meander down the road.

What makes this cottage unique

As a property managed by The Tidewater, the staff are available to help with any questions you may have, from the best place to find a lobster dinner to the various trail systems on the island to where to get cash back without having to pay ATM fees. Canoe, kayak, and vehicle rentals are also available on site.

Vinalhaven is the largest year round inhabited island in Maine. It is also home to the largest lobster fishing fleet in the world. Boasting a population of about 1200, it swells to over three times that in the summer, when visitors flock to this gorgeous getaway to delight in "getting away from it all" - Vinalhaven offers relaxation, a sense of going back in time, and has a real small-town charm.. However, it also also provides many modern ammenities, including wifi and coffee shops, as well as a variety of shops and restaurants. Learn about the granite industry on the island at the Historical Society, rent a kayak from the Tidewater and explore the Basin, visit the Land Trust and marvel at the gorgeous protected trail systems all over the island, take a 15 minute walk to Lane's Island, people watch at the (R) Cafe, sip a signature cocktail at SALT Restaurant, hunt for sea glass, take a brisk jump in one of the swimming quarries - the list goes on. Or, simply just sit in your private yard and watch the waves just steps from the door of your cottage and get away from it all.
