Ever want to sleep on an island? You can on Chebeague Island by Portland. Bike ride around the island, walk between Big and Little Chebeague at low tide. Find out island life in a 1905 Maine cottage. Note 2 rooms sleep 2 each, 1 room sleeps 1. Best way to contact me June through Sept. is through messaging on Airbnb. This is an island, and the phone is not always good.
The cottage used to be a boathouse by the shore around 1905. It was hauled up the hill to become a cottage. Downstairs was changed as pictures show. Upstairs is the original classic 1905 Maine cottage original rustic wood. Just the windows have been replaced and bathroom has newer fixtures. There are spiral stairs up to the second floor. Please make sure you are comfortable with spiral stairs. Will add more pictures when the site lets me.
Guests will have access to the kitchen (refrigerator, stove, mcrowave and coffee maker), dining, living areas and deck. There are 3 bikes. I will provide a map of the island showing beaches and interesting places.
Interaction with guests
Internet is accessible at the cottage, but perhaps not all phones. Be sure to ask if you need help. There are also places you can go to if your phone internet doesn't work at the cottage. You can have all the privacy you want, but be sure to ask if you need help.
Other things to note
If you are a coffee drinker (I'm not), please bring your coffee! I have a coffee maker. The Niblic does have great coffee. We do have a fun outdoor shower for after the beach!
We ask that you respect our house like your own. No lit candles are allowed. Also no muddy shoes, leave them outside on deck! Please be considerate on check-in time, prefer before 9:00 pm.
I love Chebeague Island. It's walkable and friendly. I enjoy rowing in my dinghy, sailing and croquet. I go back to CO for the winter. I'm lucky to enjoy majestic mountains and the ocean.
