Step off-the-grid in this quaint four bedroom cottage on an island on the water of the Penobscot Bay for the perfect low-tech getaway. No electricity, running water or indoor plumbing. Propane fridge + stove are among the cabin’s few compromises to modernity.
Fire is a serious danger. Do not use open flame devices in the house, which principally means kerosene lanterns and candles. We have provided numerous LED and solar powered lanterns for your convenience. No smoking applies inside the house, shed, and the outhouse. In dry weather be extra cautious even outside. There is a small fire extinguisher in the kitchen and one in the hallway to upstairs, but they are not to be relied upon as they are not tested. And, in any case they would only help to put out a small blaze. Campfires at the beach are safe unless conditions are too dry, or the wind is onshore. Numerous houses on the island have burned to the ground due to negligence. There is no fire department on Eagle.
