Spectacle Island Estate rests between Bar Harbour and Winter Harbour Maine. This body of water is called Frenchman's Bay. Spectacle Island is nestled in an alcove of smaller islands protected from the south weather by Turtle Island which is owned by the Nature Conservancy, while Mark Island which used to be a working lighthouse.

The view to the east with schodic peninsula blanketing the horizon right beyond. To the north you look at grindstone neck with spruce trees and nesting osprey, and finally to the west you have flat island and Heron Island which is dwarfed by the rolling hills of Mount Desert Island.

When you awake to sunrise drifting through the spruce tops off schoodic peninsula, you have a sense of freedom and space. The sun filters through the morning mist and through light across Frenchman's Bay and casts a glow of light which reflects off of Champlain and Cadillac Mountain. With a morning that rejuvenates you and gives off energy that just erupts from your soul giving you strength to take on any perfect day!

The wrap around porch gives you a vantage point to observe lobster fishermen bustling about with their daily activities; hauling, baiting, and hauling again. While the soft sea air envelops your senses and the sun dances on your skin you can watch the seagulls, osprey, and eagles soar all around and high above. With your senses being drawn in by the washing surf and the soothing beach rose aroma you drift into a peaceful intoxication. While mainland is only a short skip to shore, you feel miles from the ordinary. Your cares of day to day activities drift away after being tossed into an abyss of utopia.

Accommodations

The hand carved Post and Beam home finished in the summer of 2005 has all accoutrements of the modern household. The island is free of the mainland, producing its own fresh water, power, heat all thanks to new technology and fuel sources. With a combination of resources from a generator, solar, batteries, inverters, desalinization machines, and propane Spectacle Island provides to all of your needs. There are 3 bed rooms and 2 full baths, which provide plenty of room for all of your guests, and a bunk house which hangs out over the beach.

The master suite looks out towards the south with views of the east and west. With an attached bathroom, a Jacuzzi tub and glass enclosed shower provide you with the chance of romance. The other two bedrooms both look north and one east and the other west. The east bedroom has two twin beds in it with a view of the schoodic peninsula and grindstone neck, while the west bed room has a queen bed with views of grindstone neck, Heron Island and Mount Desert Island. The hallway on the second floor seconds as an entertainment area. With a 92" movie screen and satellite television, you have the option of curling up and watching a movie.

Downstairs there is a full kitchen which can either be provisioned with your liking or catered to with a menu that you can choose from for up to a week in advance. A large dining room and kitchen bar brings the family and friends together as you all prepare for a dining experience. The dinning room looks out over Frenchman's Bay and the mountains of Acadia National Park rising from the sea. This is a place to view a sunset over Mount Desert Island or just watch the glistening sea. The living room is cozy and spacious with ample space for a large group or a romantic couple. The framed beach stone fireplace is a perfect place to curl up and play a game, or just curl up with a book and the love of your life.

Spectacle Island Estate is a place for the busy lifestyle to finally stop and rest. We all need to take a breath and just relax. However, with today's demands of getting everything finished now not later, we seem to lose ourselves. So take a chance and let Spectacle Island reawaken your soul, and give you a place to day dream about. Because once you have slept on an island, you will never be quite the same.
