COMING SOON!

One of Maine's most elegant and historic properties is undergoing a full restoration in preparation for 2020, when it is set to become the state's most exclusive island rental. The spectacular home on Clapboard Island, built by a Philadelphia philanthropist more than 120 years ago, is now in the final stages of a massive restoration including new mahogany decks, teak outdoor furniture, all-new high-end kitchen appliances and bathroom updates, and a lighter and brighter coastal interior décor.

The stunning Clapboard Island home is set on 22 pristine acres, which offer hiking trails, five swimming beaches, helicopter landing area, and a large deep-water pier, dock and mooring system. The property is part of a larger island of 40 acres, with most of the remaining land designated as a conservation area, featuring its own beaches and trails. At low tide, Little Clapboard Island, part of the main property, is reachable via a sandbar for picnicking and swimming. All of this is set in Maine's beautiful Casco Bay, well known for its superb sailing, boating and fresh local seafood.

While completely private and utterly remote in feel, Clapboard Island is conveniently close to the mainland town of Falmouth, 5 minutes away. Just a few minutes farther is the exciting city of Portland, recently picked by Bon Appétit magazine as Restaurant City of the Year. With Portland’s nearby airport, vibrant craft brewery and restaurant scene, a Whole Foods that delivers to a nearby dock on the mainland, and multiple dining choices on neighboring islands, Clapboard Island guests will have no shortage of options.

The newly renovated Clapboard Island will have the ability to sleep up to 26 guests with additional optional space in a quaint antique farmhouse for six. Its updated elegance and its prime location—away from civilization, but just minutes from reentry—ensure that it will be one of the Portland area's premier destinations for a stylish retreat.
