Cet établissement historique, notre Guest House, a été restaurée avec goût et confortablement. Il a été construit il ya plus de 100 ans. Il est situé sur sa propre crique avec votre propre île privée accessible à marée basse. Le porche de soleil qui étend la largeur de la maison offre une vue incroyable sur la baie, à quelques pieds de distance. Maisons ne peuvent pas être construits cette proximité de l'eau plus longtemps. De nombreux animaux sauvages a été observé depuis le porche de soleil, y compris une paire de pygargues à tête blanche, le balbuzard pêcheur, les canards et les huards. La maison dispose d'une cuisine entièrement équipée avec de manger dans la zone. Le salon dispose d'un poêle Franklin, permettant la création d'un cadre agréable sur ces soirées parfois fraîches Maine. Les deux chambres à l'étage offrent une belle retraite. Cette maison est idéale pour un couple ou une petite famille. Le cadre est très privé et très belle. Les fleurs de rocaille long de l'été avec une variété de fleurs. La pelouse permet facilement à la plage un canot ou un kayak. Nous venons d'ajouter un porche grillagé qui ajoute une chance d'observer l'extérieur dans le confort. Des sentiers de randonnée entretenus par le Land Trust Vinalhaven sont un proche à pied. Cove Crockett offre aux plaisanciers de belles surprises, comme des chutes réversibles, Whitmore étang, et d'autres petites îles à explorer ou arrêter pour lunch..It est un lecteur facile à la ville ou à l'atterrissage de l'île de North Haven. C'est la maison d'hôtes pour la maison principale (le Cottage). Si notre maison d'hôtes ne fonctionne pas pour vous, jetez un oeil à la maison au VRBO 857705. Nous louons également un voilier de 20'-0 ".

Our second time staying here and we plan to return again for a third time next year. The cottage is situated on a beautiful cove where the tides come and go. The cottage itself is nothing fancy, but very comfortable and well-equipped. Great for a couple. Every evening we sat on the porch to watch the sky, water and birds. A great place to paddle in the canoe and hike up Tip Toe mountain for a spectacular view. There are a couple of other Land Trust trails nearby. All in all, the perfect place to rest, recharge, and be nourished by the surrounding beauty. Highly recommended.
Sweet house in a gorgeous location
This is a lovely house right on the water. The location is just gorgeous-from the porch you can watch watch the ospreys fly in and out of their nests and the tide rise and fall all day long. It's very near a regional park where you can take a nice hike and watch the gorgeous sunsets. I would come back here in a minute!
Sweet house, beautiful cove
Crocketts Cove is one of VH's treasures. The house is lovely, the porch is perfect and nothing beats a paddle around the cove or watching the sunset (or eclipse this summer) over Penobscott Bay from Tip Toe.
We really enjoyed our stay! So quiet and peaceful. Will coordinate our next visit better to the tides so that we'll be able to swim in the ocean somewhere but not at the cottage. Dream on - It would be so nice to have a dock at the cottage so we could swim in the beautiful cove at high tide. The cove was always was very inviting for swimming. We did not have a chance to swim in the quarries. We took an A+ canoe trip to the head of the cove one beautiful afternoon.
Next time we will bring more food for home cooked meals. Although we had a spectacular dinner at Salt, the other restaurants in town weren't very good. One day, a fair young lad named Will took us over to North Haven on a rainy Friday where the restaurant was understaffed and only serving lobster rolls and chowder. That experience was underwhelming. On the other hand, we thoroughly enjoyed our nature walks on as many of the Land Trust preserves we could get to in the one week we were there.
The cottage is beautifully maintained. It has an over abundance of furniture and could do with some paring down. We each bumped our heads hard, but only once, going upstairs, and we are not tall people. The upstairs bedrooms were low on head room, and we used the second bedroom as our dressing room. It would be uncomfortable for 4 adults, but it was perfect for the two of us.
The kitchen was organized and contained everything a good cook needed. I put the stick matches into a Ziploc bag knowing it would keep they dry and usable for longer.
I brought my Honda sedan for a vehicle. We did not know we would be driving on so many dirt roads (which were all well maintained.) Wish we had an SUV for porting canoes/kayak to other areas.
Thank you so much, John and Susan Williams for the most wonderful vacation!!
Wonderful, relaxing, perfect vacation
We have stayed at this property before, and loved it just as much (maybe even more, if that's possible!) this past year. Sitting out on the new deck/porch and just watching the wildlife in the cove (or the sunrise) was a highlight, as was going out in the canoe. The house is very comfortable and well-equipped, and John is a very responsive host. We had everything we needed for a fantastic week on the island, and hope to return again very soon! Thank you so much John & family!
We had a wonderful time at this cottage. John, the owner, was very considerate and prompt in answering our questions (mostly about the ferry). The house sits right near a nest where we watched osprey come and go to feed their young. We took frequent rides in the canoe and waded through the mud at low tide. It could not have been a more perfect vacation.
The house itself is small but was clean and there were plenty of dishes, utensils etc for an extended stay. I agree with past reviewers that the house has too much furniture and could do with a bit of modernizing of whatever is left behind, but this did not take away from its charm our our enjoyment.
