Waterfront Home w/Private Dock, Gas Grill, Spacious Deck, Pool Table, Decks

Pumpkin Point is located on Rackliff Island, which is part of the Tenants Harbor and St. George Peninsula. The island is accessed by a causeway and truth be told, getting to this beautiful, waterfront house is almost as breathtaking as the property itself. Driving down tree-lined Island Ave, the road suddenly opens up onto one of the most stunning views you will see: at the end of the causeway, a pine-studded island settled in the middle of Wheeler’s Bay, a vibrant boating and fishing community. Pumpkin Point overlooks the wide, open ocean and the outer islands on the horizon, Spruce Head Island to the left and Clark Island to the right. You will see lobster boats, sailboats, kayakers, and cruising boats working their way around the Mussel Ridge Channel.

Pumpkin Point was designed and built to bring its unique and striking waterfront location indoors – floor-to-ceiling windows, warm wood abounds and a soaring fireplace, built from the very granite surrounding the island, is the mainstay of the family room. Outdoor living spaces are found on each floor – a covered outdoor dining area, a sprawling deck at the front of the house as well as two private decks on the second floor. There are views from virtually every room and they are ever-changing as the tides.

The property itself sits on a small point; on one side, the lawn leads to a private wharf and smooth granite ledge dipping down to the water and an easily accessible sandy beach dotted with tide pools on the other. This home is the best of both worlds; go boating and fishing from the wharf in the morning and then spend the afternoon with your toes in warm sand reading a good book.

The main floor has a spacious family room with a fireplace and a large kitchen with a dining area to seat 10-12 people. Both these rooms have access to the front deck via French doors. The ceilings are high and the natural light is beautiful. Also on this floor is the primary bedroom with a king bed and an en-suite bathroom with an oversized customer shower. A smaller bedroom is on the opposite side of the house with a queen bed and a full bathroom (tub and shower combination) in close proximity. The front vestibule of the house has a half bath as well. The first floor also has a mudroom and a laundry room.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a large game room with a regulation-sized pool table, a minibar, a cozy conversation area overlooking the water, and a multi-purpose room. The first bedroom has a queen bed and water views – there is a full bathroom with a shower/tub combination just outside the door. The second bedroom has a queen and water views – it also has access to a private, rooftop deck with a bistro set. The views from this elevated deck are amazing! Adjacent to this bedroom is a smaller bedroom with two twin beds accessed through the queen room. Another full bathroom with a tub/shower combo is also just outside the door.

Pumpkin Point is truly an escape to another world – it allows for island living without needing a boat or a ferry. The natural beauty that surrounds it is found inside as well. Pumpkin Point allows you to experience Maine – the real Maine which is precious for all that it is and all that it isn’t.

You must be 21 years or older to rent this property.

We loved Pumpkin Point so much! Perfect size for mine and my sister`s family and our parents. We loved being able to play in the backyard, hang out on the porch, walk the rocks, or paddle board to the seals. The house is stocked and very clean. We rent several house a year and this was one of the best! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

A great experience all around. Pumpkin Point exceeded all expectations - clean, comfortable, great view, well equipped kitchen. SummerMaine was responsive and pleasant to work with. It`s clear SummerMaine takes the health and safety of its guests and employees seriously, which we were all grateful for. We`ll definitely be back!

My family of 9, along with our 2 toy poodles spent a wonderful week together at Pumpkin Point. The home itself sits on a beautiful piece of shoreline. We were able to swim from the dock, sun on the rocks and forget about clocks! The house was very clean, very spacious and very well equipped. My family never felt crammed together. We appreciated the full size washer and dryer. We enjoyed the owner`s collection of books, as well as the owner`s telescope. We used it to stargaze, view wildlife and spy on passing boats. Although we cooked in for most meals, we did enjoy take out from nearby McLoons Lobster Shack. Thank you, Owners, for sharing your special place with us.

It was absolutely gorgeous!! We had 2 couples and 6 young adults in their 20s. There was something for everyone! We cooked at home almost every night and the kitchen had all the pots, pans, and tools we needed. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Pumpkin Point was the perfect location for our family vacation. The house is well sized (we were 6 adults and two children) and very comfortable. The views can`t be beat - from almost every room you can see the water. We also loved the outdoor fire pit and looking up at the stars every night. It was such a special week for all of us and we will absolutely be back to Pumpkin Point! The team at SummerMaine was great to work with and helped make our vacation go smoothly.

In the beginning, we had trouble with the reservation. I was disappointed with the confusion with the owners because I had already booked and payed for the property when they said it was unavailable. It ended up working out and we got to stay there for our desired dates. The house and the property were beautiful and I would stay there again.

Pumpkin Point is the most incredible home we`ve ever stayed in. The view as soon as you open the front door welcomes you with the glistening sea in the background. The home is immaculate! Boats, birds, the ocean breeze, and a beautiful home...a little slice of Heaven. They even have a telescope so you can see the lighthouse off in the distant. SummerMaine was wonderful. The entire rental process was really easy. Wish we could`ve stayed longer! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
