About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Comfortable waterfront property on Cousins Island-accessible by bridge-with a stairway to a small sandy beach for swimming and boating. Enjoy views to the water and moored boats from nearly every room and relax on two sun-soaked elevated decks.

The rental includes the upper two floors of the house ( the lower level is a separate owner occupied apartment). The property overlooks the shore on a private acre surrounded by 16 acres of Town conservation property on its approach and a 2 acre neighborhood beach, dock, and boat mooring area waterside.

The first floor of the unit incudes a kitchen with granite counters, stainless appliances, gas range and views of the ocean. The open concept kitchen, dining, and sitting area are perfect for entertaining. The spacious living room overlooks the lawn and water. A first floor master bedroom (queen) has its own bath and a connecting sunroom providing expansive views. Also included is a first floor laundry area and guest bath. The second floor of the unit is comprised of two bedrooms (1 full and 1 queen), a den with walkout to outside deck, and a full bath.

Yarmouth is a 20 minute drive from both Freeport to the North or Portland to the South. A regular ferry from Cousins Island provides easy access to neighboring Chebeague Island. A short walk over a connecting causeway provides access to charming Littlejohn Island.

Spacious and convenient

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and conveniently located to many Maine places to see. It is very spacious and created a great home base for 6 of us without feeling like we were on top of each other.

Beautiful home but bad experience

  • 1 of 5

The home is comfortable and in a very pleasant natural setting with views on the bay. We stayed over the christmas holiday and had a wonderful time. However, our security deposit was never returned. Furthermore, a couple of months after we left we were notified by the HomeAway insurance policy provider that the owner of the property filed a claim for over $1000 of damages to the property that were purportedly caused by us. This was followed a few weeks later by an additional claim against the insurance policy for other purported damages during our stay. We are very careful and in the many years of renting properties like this, we have never been accused of causing damages or denied return of our security deposit. We called the owner to talk but she did not seem interested in resolving the dispute.

Beautiful house and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Cousin's island is a great place to stay and a lot of locals do just that. The house is right on the water with plenty to see and a lot of space on the grounds and the house itself. You are close enough to Portland to go into town but the local area provides everything you need from L.L. Beam to fresh lobster houses. This listing description was excellent and the property was clean and well maintained when we got there.

On our next trip to Maine we will for sure be back to stay here at Cousins Island Waterfront.

Maine coast rental

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautifully furnished, clean and comfortable. Our only problem was that the dishwasher did not work the entire length of our stay. This is certainly not what you'd expect with a costly VRBO rental! The on-premises owner had someone out to look at it but it was unable to be fixed as it needed parts. My guess is that the dishwasher hadn't worked for sometime! The owner never indicated she was sorry for our inconvenience...
