About the property

Studio apartment on the water in Casco Bay.

Truly get away from it all on Little John Island in Yarmouth, ME. Accessible by car from Cousins Island, Little John Island sits quietly in Casco Bay, but is just minutes away from Yarmouth Village, Freeport outlet shopping, and Portland's Old Port. Whether you are looking to sit back, relax and enjoy the calming waters and scenic views of Casco Bay, or you want to get out and experience all that Southern Maine has to offer, this is the place to be. Newly constructed in 2013, our studio apartment has a queen bed and full size futon allowing 4 people to sleep comfortably. The kitchen has a refrigerator/freezer, 2-burner stove large double basin sink, toaster oven, microwave and is fully outfitted with cookware, plates, utensils, and entertaining supplies. There is a separate dining area with a table and chairs for 4 along with seating for 2 at the bar. The living room area, with 2 chairs, a futon, and a large coffee table, is a cozy area to play games or sit and visit while looking out onto the water. The 3/4 Bathroom also houses a stackable washer/dryer and linens for the unit. Off the dining area, there is a deck with 4 chairs and 2 small tables where you can sit and enjoy the breeze off the water and look out onto Casco Bay. There is also a small grill located on the deck. Outside there are stairs down to the water, where you can walk along the rocks, go for a swim, or go paddling on one of the kayaks available for use with rental. If you prefer to stay on land, Little John Island provides a wonderful setting for walking or biking (bikes are provided). There is ample parking allowing for friends and family to come join you. Just a short drive North, you will find Freeport, which is home to numerous outlet stores, restaurants, a movie theater, and the LL Bean flagship store. Journeying a short ways South and you will find all the shops, restaurants, and history that the Old Port has to offer. There are also multiple restaurants and bars in Yarmouth as well as a supermarket. Very easy access to I-295 and I-95 for those interested in exploring other parts of the state. Also very close to Rte. 1 which will take you for a scenic drive up the coast of Maine.

Anchor Loft July 2015 Visit

  • 5 of 5

If you are thinking about renting the Anchor Loft, you will not be disappointed. Little John Island is a quaint and magical little place! The scenery is amazing and good for the soul. The Anchor Loft is just as beautiful as the picture depict. It was very clean and has all the amenities that you need for a vacation stay. The kitchen is well equipped if you should need/want to cook a meal. The bathroom has a stacked washer/dryer unit and plenty of towels for showering. The main living space has a flat screen TV, books, and many games for passing your time if you choose to experience a quieter, relaxing vacation. There is plenty of storage for your clothing - there are built in drawers and a large closet. I feel that the owners of this loft thought of every detail needed for a beautiful rental property. If I had any questions, Katy Rice's prompt time was excellent. I have a sister who lives on the lsland and if there is another time where I should need to stay at the Anchor Loft, I will try and book this gem of a place! BEAUTIFUL

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Anchor Loft. The studio apartment was clean, bright, and pleasant. The kitchen was well equipped, and books, movies, and jigsaw puzzles were provided. We spent time enjoying the view of the bay from the deck, and we made use of the kayaks and bikes available on the property. We strolled and biked around Little John Island, enjoying the gorgeous views of the bay. We also hiked the short trail loop in the nature preserve at the end of the island. Our hosts were welcoming and helpful, and we really enjoyed playing fetch with their two golden retrievers.

Our excursions included trips to Freeport and Portland, which are a short and easy drive away. We discovered good restaurants in Portland, Freeport, and Yarmouth.

Highly recommended!
