Vinalhaven Island Rentals


A Prominent Vinalhaven Thorofare Summer Home

The Crow's Nest is a prominent traditional Maine summer home reminiscent of an earlier time located on seven acres of wooded coastline. The expansive front porch offers panoramic views of North Haven, the Thorofare (the deep water channel between North Haven and Vinalhaven) and the Maine Coast. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets can be seen from the front deck. Days can be spent relaxing, reading and watching the schooners pass through the Thorofare taking you back to another time. You are removed from everyday life and surrounded by nature, but are never far from comfort. A short walk takes you down to the floating docks where two kayaks are available to explore the shore and islands in the Thorofare. A guest mooring is available for your boat. There are 21 nature trails on Vinalhaven, many within easily walking distance. You can swim in the ocean (if you can brave the cool water) or swim the in the clear warm waters of the quarry. High-speed internet service is available if you "must" keep in touch or just want to share great photos of your Maine experience.

The main level of the Crow's Nest has a large living room and fire place. The dining room also has a fireplace and can be set for a small intimate group of four or a large gathering of ten. There is a supply of dry fire wood available for a relaxing evening in front of the fireplace. The large kitchen has a view of the water and North Haven with all the cookware to prepare a wonderful Maine lobster dinner. And the dishwasher will minimizes the after dinner work. The backroom has a large washer and dryer. Upstairs there are five bedrooms. The master bedroom, with queen bed and in suite bath, looks out over the water. There is nothing like waking up to the view of the Maine coast to fill you with the feeling of love for the world. The master bathroom has a claw foot tub with a hand held shower. A second bedroom, also facing the water, has a full bed while the third bedroom has two twin beds. A fourth bedroom has two bunk beds (kids will love this) and the fifth bedroom faces the back of the house with a double bed and windows on three sides. There is a second full bathroom upstairs with a tub and hand shower. The full bathroom downstairs is complete with a with a shower stall.

Pick up your groceries and lobsters on your way out of town and prepare to spend a wonderful relaxing week on the water on a lovely island of the coast of Maine.
