Maine's most exclusive island rental is now welcoming guests after a stunning makeover that's restored and updated its uniquely elegant and historic charms. The spectacular 13-bedroom, 9-bathroom home on Clapboard Island, built by a Philadelphia railroad owner more than 120 years ago, features all new interior furnishings with a lighter and brighter coastal décor. Other star features of the renovation include a modernized kitchen and butler pantry with high-end appliances, updated baths, and new mahogany decks with teak seating providing elevated views of the surrounding waters.

The classic Clapboard Island home, described by Vogue as living a Kennedy lifestyle, is set on 22 acres, offering six swimming beaches, antique gardens, a zip line, and walking trails extending 40 acres into abutting conservation land. At low tide, Little Clapboard Island, part of the main property, is reachable via a sandbar for picnicking and swimming. Clapboard Island's location couldn't be more ideal, set in Maine's beautiful Casco Bay, well known for its superb sailing, boating and fresh local seafood. Transportation to the island is simple, accessible via a helicopter landing area and a large deep-water pier, dock and mooring system.

While completely private and utterly remote in feel, Clapboard Island is very convenient to the mainland town of Falmouth, just 5 minutes away. Only minutes beyond is the exciting city of Portland, home to a booming and Bon Appétit-acclaimed restaurant scene. With Portland’s nearby airport, vibrant craft breweries and restaurants, a Whole Foods that delivers to a nearby dock on the mainland, and multiple dining choices on neighboring islands, Clapboard Island guests have no shortage of options. The island can sleep up to 26 guests with additional optional space in a quaint antique farmhouse for six. Its updated elegance and prime location—away from civilization, but just minutes from reentry—ensures its place as one of the Portland area's premier destinations for a stylish retreat.
