Property Description

Rustic two-story 1850s farmhouse-style attached apartment converted from a former lobsterman's workshop. Wide plank (some squeaky) floors throughout, narrow steep stairway, ideal for those looking for authentic Maine island charm. Old-fashioned glider out front next to rhododendron and rose bush gets morning sun exposure. So quiet with the sound of rustling leaves and seagulls. One TempurPedic double bed or two comfy twin beds. Apartment is in great residential location near Historical Society up on the hill for easy walking to Main Street restaurants, shops, and ferry. Near water, not on water, with limited Sands Cove views from upstairs bedrooms. Good neighborhood for walking, great harbor views from nearby Blueberry Lane overlook. Walk to breathtaking Lane's Island Preserve or rent bikes and kayaks in town. This is not a good choice for people who are expecting a modern "fancy" place. There aren't electric outlets and switches on every wall in every room for instance, but there are plenty of lamps, books, games and the kitchen is well-stocked including lobster pot, coffee maker, and toaster. The owners might be in the connected house while you are here but are a quiet older couple (Caleb writes fiction under the pen name Don Trowden so is usually writing) and there is no open access between spaces. We provide bedding and towels. No pets, please. There is wi-fi, reception best on first floor, but no landline phone or TV. AT&T has cell towers on the island and is best choice for cell service. Maximum occupancy is two adults. Will also consider an infant with parents.

Cute place, well appointed with everything necessary for living confortly.

We were impressed with our communication with the owner. The place was beyond our expectations in both living necessities and decorating. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. Location was great. The only complaint I have is a smoke detector low battery alarm during the night.

Simply charming

A perfect apartment for our stay on Vinalhaven. Situated within walking distance to all amenities, we were also pleasantly surprised to be a 20 minute walk from the local swimming hole. It is a bit of a walk from the ferry to the apartment with the last part being uphill, so arranging a ride to and from the dock would be ideal. Other than that you... Read More
