Waterfront Home on Peace Cove, Dyer’s Island
The continuing renovations on this sunny, waterfront vacation rental property on Peace Cove on Dyer’s Island, a small extension on the west side of Vinalhaven, have made it even more of a magical gem that you’ll never want to leave. It sits on two acres on the water looking southwest, down Hurricane Sound to Hurricane Island, where the tide change uncovers acres of tide pools filled with shells, colored glass and other treasures from the sea. The large lawn area and new cedar deck waits for kites, Frisbees or a peaceful nap by the sea as you watch the boats go by.
The waterfront has large, water rounded granite flows to sit on or explore; a great place to launch a kayak or canoe. There is a nice deck out front as well bordered with lots of native flowers and a small, private courtyard surrounded by the house, but open to the water. You can pick a pail full of fresh berries for your cereal or muffins in season. The cove is a haven for herons, fish hawks diving into the sea, bald eagles and a large variety of shore birds.
The eat-in kitchen is bright and cheery. The dining room is in the old, 1865 original part of the house. There is a new addition that has a master bedroom with a king size bed and a lofty living room with comfy furniture and a great view of the water out 2 large picture windows and sliding glass door. A hammock hangs from the ceiling for lazy afternoon snoozes and snuggles. There is another small bedroom on the first floor with a double iron bed, and two rooms upstairs, one with 2 twin beds and one with a king. The larger of the two upstairs rooms has two skylights for lots of added sunshine, but they can be shaded for those who want to sleep late in the morning.
Off the kitchen is a mudroom that accesses the deck and also leads into a small sunroom with wicker furniture; a nice place to sit and read or have your morning coffee. Beyond the sunroom is an attached boat house that has been converted to a summer bedroom with a double futon. It could also be used for a studio or for those of you, who just CAN’T leave work at home, could be used for your vacation office space.
