Waterfront Gem at Capitol Island with Screened Porch, Balcony & Clubhouse

This classic Maine waterfront cottage, updated from ground to sky in 2011, has a view that never quits, and the Adirondack chairs on the rocks at the water’s edge are just 75’ from the screened porch. A second-floor ocean-side Juliet balcony is the best place to sip your morning coffee or evening wine. Help yourself to a cottage kayak if you want a closer look at marine wildlife or one of the harbor islands.


The spacious first-floor living room has plenty of comfortable seating and double doors that open to the screened porch; if the weather is gray or chilly, you can cozy up to the propane fireplace. A TV (with limited service) is also available for entertainment, or peruse a collection of puzzles, games, children’s toys, and many books.


The light-filled and fully equipped kitchen provides ocean views to both the East and the West. Bring your group together around the vintage oak dining room table for memorable vacation mealtimes.


Upstairs, you’ll find two large East-facing bedrooms. Each room is detailed with a queen bed, direct balcony access, and vintage dressers.

The third West-facing bedroom has two XL twin beds (which can be converted to a king bed upon request), a Pack ‘n Play, and under the bed is an extra floor mattress.

The upstairs bathroom features a tub/shower combination.

The first-floor office doubles as a bedroom and features a queen Murphy bed and a large workspace with a desktop monitor and French doors -- ideal for nighttime privacy or working remote. An adjacent bathroom has a walk-in shower.


Enjoy quiet mornings on the screened porch. Plenty of seating invites you to kick back and take in the view. Take the stairs and a secluded path down to the water's edge.


Wi-Fi, on-site parking for three cars (no other parking available on island), and a Weber charcoal grill.

Although this home does not have air-conditioning, it is rarely needed with Southport’s mild coastal temperatures.

This cottage shares the following on-site amenities with the unit on the other side of the duplex: a printer, two kayaks and personal floatation devices for all ages/sizes, a limited landline for emergency calls, and a washer/dryer.

This two-story duplex is accessed via a short flight of stairs at the entryway.


This magic little island was developed and established as a summer community in the 1890s, is social if you feel social and private if you do not. The Casino (community house near the bridge), the marina/docks/floats, the beaches, the woodland paths, the car-width dirt road, the playground area, and tennis courts: all are shared by residents, guests, and tenants.

You must be 25 years or older to rent this property.

A lovely spot on the coast of Maine near Booth Bay Harbor, close to great restaurants but far enough off the beaten track that you can have time to yourself. A great place for a family with older kids or a couple`s retreat or girls weekend that is quieter. Definitely not a party spot, and not best for young kids as the stairs are narrow and awkward and there`s not a lot to do for kids. Beds are comfortable, home is quaint and organized. Nice sized kitchen but didn`t have the cooking pots and plans one would expect for a home of this size and location. Property management options for support when we had no internet or enough towels for a longer stay were auto-generated and quite inefficient, so we had to try other means of communication. This part was confusing and didn`t resolve our problems, likely the result of a larger PM companies impersonal methods. It put a definite damper on the first part of the trip. Repeated disruptions for service people (3 in one day!) was frustrating. The island location offers some casual walks but no hiking or direct water access from the unit, but views and vibe are phenomenal. Overall a great place with a few things that could use tightening up to make it a five star across the board.
