Perfect Location for Relishing Island Life on Islesboro
What a wonderful location on the island for slowing down, taking a deep breath, and relishing life on Islesboro. The lovely home sits in the middle of the island so it's easy to go up-island or down-island. Plus you have a true sense of privacy. Adirondack chairs that sit next to a short drop-off overlooking the Penobscot Bay or sitting on the property's beach were our family's go-to places to read, zone, meditate, or write. Even our 2 teens got into this pattern. They also thoroughly enjoyed the provided kayaks w/ PFDs for exploring the calm bay. Poking around on the property's beach, especially at low-tide, with no time constraints --- heaven! The island has 2 small markets (Durkee's and Island Market) that have a surprisingly nice variety of groceries/household supplies and each are a very short drive from the house. Be sure to research your food options & store hrs ahead of time so you know what you'll want to bring with you from the mainland though. The home has a generous amount of towels/linens and a nice variety of kitchen pots/pans/dishes, including an outdoor propane-fueled lobster cooker. Free WIFI is available 24/7 just a 10 min walk down the road at the public library. Thank you Alan for making your home available for those of us that relish living a more quiet, serene life, even if just for a week.
Quiet relaxing stay
Our two weeks in Islesboro were wonderful. The home was comfortable, the property was well kept, and we enjoyed the quiet. We really appreciated that we could bring our dog on vacation and the home was family friendly for our 1 year old son. From the start, Alan was very responsive to our questions and very helpful with suggestions about the island. This was a perfect introduction to using this site and we now have a standard for future vacations. We loved our walks on the beach (especially our dog), hunting for fresh mussels, watching the lobster boats and ships sail past, and kayaking.
One important thing to note, the ferry back to the island stops running at 5pm, and you have to be in line by 3:30ish to make sure you make it back to the island on time - so you have to plan accordingly for meals and your day trips.
The sunrises were amazing and the quiet of the island was very peaceful. We were very happy to spend 2 weeks there this summer and plan to do so again in the future.
