This hidden gem in Maine’s midcoast region includes two properties.

The first is a small spectacular island and summer cottage featured in Coastal Living magazine. Located in protected waters where the Medomak River opens into Muscongus Bay, the island and cottage are accessible by small boat only, and surrounded by other undeveloped islands and lobstering grounds. It has been impeccably maintained and contains a small solar power plant, composting toilet, woodstove, bedroom, and dining area.

The second is a mainland base, located three miles from the island on the Pemaquid Peninsula’s Dutch Neck. This is a year-round home and is located across the street from the Dutch Neck public boat launch. The home comes with a newer 18-foot Yamaha boat, motor, and trailer so you can easily travel to the island cottage or explore the stunning Midcoast region whenever the whim strikes. The home has been newly-renovated, has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a 2-bay garage that fits a car and boat. Situated on a 4-acre grass and forested lot, it is surrounded by myriad native and migratory bird species in all seasons.

This offering is truly turnkey as both cottage and home are tastefully furnished and ready to enjoy.

MORE ABOUT THE LOCALE

Muscongus Bay is a spectacular island-speckled coastal seaway that may be the last remaining unspoiled Maine bay-sized estuary. This is where Captain George Weymouth first made American landfall on May 17, 1605 (15 years before Plymouth was founded), leaving a cross on Allen Island before sailing further down the coast to Cape Cod.

Muscongus Bay is prime Maine lobstering territory. Being well protected and geographically isolated by neighboring peninsulas from Casco and Penobscot Bays, it is off the beaten tourist path despite its proximity to Portland, an hour and a half south. (Acadia is another two hours north.) Muscongus Bay is home to more than 80 islands, including Monhegan, a year-round lobstering and artist community. It also houses the Audubon Society’s natural history educational center, Hog Island, as well as Audubon’s premier puffin restoration site, Eastern Egg Rock. Muscongus Bay lies in the middle of the famed 375-mile-long Maine Island Trail, awarded the “Best Sea Kayaking Trail in the Nation” by Outside Magazine. Unlike other parts of the Maine coast, lobster boats plying the Bay’s waters vastly outnumber recreational vessels.
