Our cottage on Vinalhaven was built in 2012 and overlooks Sheep Island, with distant views of Isle Au Haut. Situated on Clam Cove, in Roberts Harbor, it is a year round property in a private location, yet just a few minutes from the center of town.
This space is unique in that it is cozy yet spacious, with a vaulted ceiling, loft sleeping/lounging space, open concept living, dining and kitchen, and two private bedrooms, with large deck with one portion covered and one exposed, for the sun lovers. There is a wood stove and central heat should you need it, but that is doubtful in the summer.
Our property also includes a bunkhouse which is under construction and not accessible yet for guests; guests have access to the road that leads down from our house to the waterfront where you can climb on the rocks, put a kayak in, and enjoy a different perspective of Sheep Island and the cove. The beach to the right of our waterfront access is private and off limits.
We are available directly via telephone and text messaging, but are not on Island during your stay.
There is no cable TV at the house, but we do have wifi access. We do have a TV with a built in DVD player, and a library of movies (kids and adults). We typically utilize this space as a retreat from technology and as a peaceful place of rest and rejuvenation, as the landscape around the house and area it is situated in lends itself to that nicely.
We expect our guests to respect our cottage as you would respect your own home; understanding that much love and effort went into constructing this space, and we want to maintain it for all of our guests to continue to enjoy, and our family as well. We spend time there as well, so you are guests in our home. There is no smoking allowed on the property, and we need to speak directly if you wish to bring your dog. No other pets allowed. We expect you to leave the house as you find it-- broom swept, trash removed from the premises, linens stripped from the beds.
