This fabulous two story, four bedroom, 1.5 bath cape-style home on Monhegan Island offers spectacular water views from both floors. The house will comfortably accommodate a large group or an extended family. Magnolia House offers an open floor plan, which is flooded with natural light through the large picture windows and many skylights. Spacious, well stocked kitchen with updated stainless refrigerator and stove makes cooking a pleasure. Sun yourself on one of three private decks overlooking the beautifully designed perennial gardens,or enjoy the handcrafted stone fireplace on a cool evening. Lots of wood will be provided for you!
Separate media room offers quiet space for reading, relaxing, or family movie night with flatscreen and Netflix. House has several high end bluetooth stereos for streaming music on the high speed wifi. For extra guests, there is a full size futon and a single pull out bed in addition to the bedrooms. Hopefully you won't need it, but there is a large desk and office space on the second floor. Unlike many Monhegan properties, we are more than happy to consider pets.
Just past the Trailing Yew on Lobster Cove Road, Magnolia House is only minutes from Fish and Swim Beaches, galleries and the rest of the village in one direction and Lobster Cove in the other direction.
Have a larger group? Consider also renting the Kendall Apartment, which can be rented separately or with the main house! Kendall is a large studio apartment that has a private entrance, kitchen, bathroom, deck and gardens, but when rented with the main house, we can have the privacy wall adjusted so that there is a door that connects the two! Perfect for extended families or large groups attending festivities in the area.
Bringing children? We have a fantastic wooden playhouse on the property (with a loft!) that kids love, plenty of toys, puzzles, games and Legos, beach chairs, books for all ages, and a perfect bedroom with bunk beds (and a pull-out trundle) on the second floor. For much of the summer, there are delicious wild raspberries blooming in the yard, and late summer/early fall you can find wild blackberries. These are not just for kids, of course...last week we made a batch of homemade raspberry ice cream using freshly-picked berries from the yard, and we encourage you to do the same!
