Islesboro House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bed/2 Bath Sleeps 5. Two Houses For One. Main House And A Full Apartment Unit

Heavenly Daze. Well-crafted, fully furnished and handicap accessible home perched on rugged ledges in an enchanting and private woodland setting. Completely renovated. Glorious sunsets, simple and inviting gardens, footpaths. Just steps to a picturesque typical Maine beach. Main house has spacious master suite including walk in shower with heated tile floors. This house has one floor with fully stocked kitchen, family room with floor to ceiling windows looking out on Penobscot Bay, vaulted ceilings, exposed natural wood beams, a centrally located wood stove fireplace perfect for a cold fall evening. Having friends join you for a few days….the fully furnished one bedroom apartment above the detached garage has a kitchenette, full bathroom, living area and queen size bed is perfect for guests. Charcoal grill for slow and relaxing dinners and an ocean side landscaped fire pit perfect for s’mores while you watch the stars.

The house is on an island. there is a car ferry that runs between the mainland and the island every 30 minutes from 7 am to 5 pm 7 days a week and a smaller non car ferry that will run into the evening or anytime per request. Islesboro has 2 country stores with all the provisions one would need to make a 5 course meal. There are a few small shops and even a great place for ice-cream. The Island however does not have any restaurants so if you are looking for wild nights out its probably not the place. We have in the past taken the ferry back during the day and go to Camden for lunch and window shopping.

The Island is famous for its large mansions that are owned by such Hollywood stars as John Travolta and Kristy Alley along with a smattering of hedge fund traders and bigwig lawyers. People come to Islesboro to get away from the crowds and recharge their batteries.

No pets or smoking please.

Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The property and house were stunning and immaculate. A beautiful, peaceful spot. The panorama of the bay was breathtaking at all times of day. We loved the garden and the fire pit, and greatly appreciated the welcome basket with wine and fixings for smores!! The beach was a short and easy walk, and it was a short walk to lovely seaside trails. I cannot say enough good things about this property, I want to go back!!!

We loved our stay at Heavenly Daze. Quiet and serene. Loons, deer, mink, herons. Great for walkind and canoeing or kayaking. Perfection vacation spot for enjoying nature and family. It is not a spot to visit if you are looking for urban night life.

Beautiful view, beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

We are so blessed to have found the Lipcom home on Ilesboro. this is our 4th year at their home on the island. Beautiful spot! Very clean and well kept property. I am handicapped and am unable to climb stairs and this is the perfect place for us to stay. The apartment over the garage is perfect for our children to visit for a night or two with the grandchildren. Nothing bad to say about this property.

Heavenly Daze - A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This is a well kept, clean and spacious house. The living/dining/kitchen is the heart of the house. It is a beautiful room all day and night with lovely sunsets. This was just a perfect house with beach access. Our two sons loved the beach, with all the wild life and stones. John, the caretaker on the island, called twice to offer his assistance. He was extremely helpful, generous, and friendly.

Outstanding location and property

  • 5 of 5

The photographs do not do justice to this roomy, comfortable home with every amenity. It is located on the ocean with stunning sunset viewing from the deck or from the firepit. Clean, well-cared for, yet comfortable and inviting. The apartment offers a unique opportunity for a family gathering, reunion or just a group of friends like us who wanted to get away to a peaceful place that offered privacy. The lobster from the Marina was sweet and so inexpensive. The muffins at the Rabbit Corner Café were the best. The week was totally memorable. We highly recommend Heavenly Daze....it was heavenly!
