This island-based Oceanfront Cottage comes complete with a Guest House, Lookout Tower, Bali House, and Billiards Barn, on Sturdivant Island off Portland/Falmouth.

This 4.2 acre property is at the southern end of the island and has panoramic ocean views. Dive from your private dock - Swim from your private beach- Enjoy the fire pit- Host a Wedding* – Enjoy walking trails Trails – This Property has it all!
The Cottage was restored several years ago and features a custom native stone fireplace. While the cottage sleeps 8 in 4 sleeping areas, there is room for up to 14 people using tents, the Bali Room, etc. This is an "advanced camping" experience. Purchased 8 years ago by the current owner, it was a dream come true for a Mainer her whole life. The property has views from all around and private beaches. You can hear the waves lapping, see sailboats sailing by, collect sea glass and enjoy the perfectness of a classic Maine cottage. This kid-friendly property is a dream for anyone interested in the old school quietness of our past, but in need of the newer amenities to make it comfy and is close to the mainland for anything you need.
Because Sturdivant Island is close to the Portland airport, close to 5 star restaurants, and is on the outskirts of a beautiful harbor, it is a very convenient vacation destination.
The uniqueness of this property is the privacy and quietness. Still, this is a rustic-like property and not for everyone. There are no roads on the island, so it will just be you and your group there. The only way to get to the island is by water taxi or private boat. It is so special to be "away from society" easily, but it is close enough to jump right back in if wanted. It is run by solar power (with back-up generator) and the toilet gets water from the well supported water tank. (you cannot tell - it is a regular modern bathroom!) There is an outdoor and indoor shower. The outdoor is a must. There is a lobster cooker for outside so lobster bakes are easy (or you can easily hire someone to come do it for you) All amenities needed or wanted are available.
* Weddings or other events require event insurance and an additional event fee of $1000. Inquire for more details.
