Located on Cape Rosier on a tiny island just off shore, this cottage is a very special (some say magical) place. Accessed by a foot- bridge from the mainland, the cottage has amazing views of Eggemoggin Reach and Weir Cove and a private dock.

At high tide, this cottage is it's own little island, accessed only by a sturdy 4' wide foot bridge. The cottage is comfortable and fully furnished with modern amenities but maintains much of it's original 1915 charm. Views of Penobscot Bay, Eggemoggin Reach and Weir Cove are visible through every window, and the water's edge is mere feet away - This Maine getaway is perfect for swimming, exploring tide pools, getting close to nature and enjoying a true "Down East" Maine experience. The front porch of the cottage is one of it's best features - You'll find it hard to leave once you relax in a porch chair for your morning coffee. The porch is also the perfect spot for enjoying evening cocktails and watching the moon rise over Red Point. A sunny small back porch is also a great spot for reading and watching the sunset.

The cottage sleeps 8 comfortably with 4 bedrooms and 1 and 1/2 baths. Bedroom 1 is on the first floor. it has a double bed and a separate door leading to the first floor bathroom. The bathroom has a shower, sink and toilet and an apartment-sized washer/dryer. Also in the first floor is a large living room with a wall of windows that looks out on Weir Cove and a beautiful stone fireplace. Also on the first floor is the kitchen and a good sized dining room where 10 can fit around an old oak table comfortably.

Bedrooms 2, 3 and 4 are on the second floor, along with a 1/2 bath. The largest bedroom has a queen size bed, next door is a double bed in a room with a skylight for star gazing. Across from those two bedrooms is a room with two twin beds. There is a large carpeted common area between the bedrooms that's great for playing monopoly or watching movies.

The property includes use of a dock, 3 kayaks (one double and two singles) a row boat, a few bicycles (each in it's own special state of disrepair - but usable), fishing poles and a wide assortment of life jackets, including children's sizes. The kitchen has an apartment-sized dishwasher and gas stove, plus all the standard appliances like microwave, toaster, coffee maker, etc. There is an apartment-sized washer and dryer in the downstairs bathroom. Games, puzzles and an eclectic book selection are at the ready for a lazy rainy day.

We'll be there to meet you when you arrive and show you around the property. During your stay, we will be a phone call away if you need us. One of the special things about the island is being able to call it your own for the time you are there. We'll make it a priority to respect your privacy, but may need access to the dock occasionally - we will do that quickly and quietly.

Cape Rosier is remarkable for it's natural beauty. The Cape possesses much the same charm that attracted visitors to this remote area in the late 1800's from Boston by steamship. Highlights to visit while you're there include Holbrook Island Sanctuary, The Good Life Center, and Four Season Farm. If you're lucky, you can take in a pancake breakfast or bake sale at the Cape Rosier Grange, or buy lobsters right off the dock at Hiram Blake Camp. Nearby Brooksville, a 10 minute drive, has a small market (with some surprising gourmet and locally grown choices - and a great wine selection), a fine restaurant, and a great farmer's market every Tuesday morning in the summer. Blue Hill, 25 minutes away, offers a larger supermarket, and many shops and restaurants to choose from, it's a great day trip. Little Deer Isle and Stonington are also great day-trip destinations, and the truly adventurous can take a Ferry from Stonington to Isle Au Haut for a scenic bike-ride around the island. Castine, Camden, Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are all easy and enjoyable day trips as well.

There is room for parking up to 3 cars in a shared parking lot on the mainland. We'll provide a Garden Way cart for you to transport your belongings from the car-park to the island through a beautiful woods trail and across the bridge. Getting to Cape Rosier takes perseverance - it's WAY off the beaten path, but well worth the trip. It's about an hour from the Bangor Airport, and 3 hours from the Portland Jetport. We can provide detailed directions, but most GPS systems will deliver you to the parking lot very nicely.

Gail and her family met us on the bridge and made us feel amazingly welcome from the first moment. The house and island was everything we had dreamed it would be. We so hope to come back again!

I want to say "never stay here" ONLY so it will remain a magical secret place. Not only was Gail a superlative host but everything was flawless about the house and the amenities. I grew up near here so i knew what to expect- other than the cry of the gulls and the slosh of the waves with the occasional whir from the lobster boats there is but salt, stones, sea, pines and that is all. Thanks to Gail and her entire family for providing a glorious respite that my family will cherish always.

This house is a beautiful place to stay on Penobscot Bay. The light, sound and water are magical. Gail and her nephew, Ben, are great hosts: helpful and interesting! Inside the house is clean, creative and comfortable -- everything one could want/need to relax and shut down.

This was our second visit to the house and we treasure it. A beautiful home with comfy and thoughtful accommodations, spectacular views all around the house and wonderful spots to relax. We kayaked, read, gazed out onto the water and took lots of walks and bike rides and beach combed. Gail and her son are prompt with answers and provide what was mentioned in the listing. A gem!

We've been staying in the area for years. This house is an absolute gem! Not only is the island location special (water views on both sides!), but the house itself is set up perfectly for a family or extended family. There are lots of cozy places to sit and read or play games. Watching the tide change and the fog roll in and out was most pleasant. Gail was a wonderful and warm host -- she communicated with us bf we arrived and promptly answered questions by text. Her son, Elliot, was close by if we needed him. Five stars, top-notch.

This was our first time with an Airbnb home and the whole experience was wonderful. From initial contact, Gail was helpful and professional. We stayed at her property for six nights, and everything is exactly as she portrays in the description. No bad surprises, all the opposite: we were arriving late and she left signs and a flashlight so we could find our way into the path and the bridge that lead to the house. The linens were clean and the house was impeccable. Toiletries were provided. Her book with instructions and places to go was very helpful, she was only a phone call away (or text) and she was quick in answering questions. We enjoyed the fireplace; the weather was a little chillier than what we (Texans) are used to. She also has a good collection of books and games and there was no shortage of kitchen utensils. The only thing we missed was a potato peeler, but maybe we cooked a little more than the normal guest. The house itself is in such a beautiful place that you can simply sit down at the porch and enjoy nature, the cove, great sunrises and beautiful stargazing at night. We fell privileged to stay there and we appreciate Gail willingness to share such a beautiful retreat with other travelers. For off season guests, it would be helpful to add that the house does not have central heating, but she provides one portable space heater and fixed ones in the dining room and both bathrooms; all beds have electric blankets. Staying at Gail’s property allowed us to experience coastal Maine and small town life. We went for pizza (prepared in a brick oven) at a bakery in a nearby farm (Tinderhearth bakery), visited the Blue Hills Library (beautiful building and helpful ladies!), and when looking for a potter shop, found a place totally unattended, where people had been leaving notes and money informing the artist about the pieces they were purchasing. (Not something you see in the city at all!) This place is within driving distance to multiple Maine attractions. We took day trips to Acadia, Camden and the Narrows Bridge and Ft. Knox. A great experience overall! We hope we can come back again and stay at the same place! Thanks Gail!
