Located in: Islesboro
Ferry away from your hectic life. Rejuvenate and decompress at Crow's Nest Cottage, on Islesboro Island, in Midcoast Maine. Reconnect with your partner and your family in this incredible get-away-from-it-all place 20 minutes by public State of Maine ferry off the Maine coast.

Reserve a summer week now - - or two or even three weeks - - at our cozy, comfortable, very clean, cottage on magical Islesboro Island. The sooner you reserve, the more likely you are to get your preferred week. Crow's Nest is a GREAT VALUE FOR A FABULOUS LOCATION!

We rent our cottage by the week (Saturday until Saturday) from the third week of June through the third week of September. The last two weeks in July and the first three weeks in August are the most desired. We have proudly shared Crow's Nest Cottage since 2006 with over one hundred families. Their testimonials (see our own website maineislandhouserental) speak loudly about their wonderful memories of perfect vacations at Crow's Nest Cottage.

June 29 (Saturday) – July 6 (Saturday)
July 6 (Saturday ) – 13 (Saturday)
July 13 (Saturday) – July 20 (Saturday)

The MONTH OF SEPTEMBER IS STILL WIDE OPEN. September is also a fabulous time on Islesboro and rental rates are reduced to $900 per week.

A happy guest said it best: "This week was exactly what we needed! This house is just perfect - -thank you for all the amazing touches that make it feel like home! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home with us. This is a gem on the crown of an amazing secret of an island. We loved every minute!"

This is a place that 'time forgot.' Think 19th century Vermont transported to an island in the ocean! The cottage has Internet any time you want to get back into the 21st century! Crow's Nest cottage is an easy 20 minutes by ferry off the gorgeous Maine coast. Fully renovated, Crow's Nest cottage is located at the northern, rural end of legendary Islesboro Island, considered by many the most beautiful of all Maine islands. The cottage faces the Meadow Pond, a quiet, lush wildlife refuge. It sleeps 4 comfortably in the 2 bedrooms; the living room has a Queen-size futon for a 5th adult or your teenager. We have a MAXIMUM limit of 5 people. Many quiet beaches are minutes away by car. The cottage has a marvelous, large deck. This is a SMOKE-FREE home. NO PETS PLEASE.

The cottage's spacious, light-filled bathroom has an old-fashioned tub with hand-held shower unit. We do NOT have a conventional stand-up shower.

Guests frequently tell us that Crow's Nest Cottage is like a home away from home. As one family said, "this is by far the best equipped rental house we have ever stayed in! The Peebles provided everything one could imagine needing!"

Islesboro is a very quiet vacation spot. If you are looking for beauty and tranquility, for peace and quiet, and a "low-key" vacation spot, you'll love Islesboro Island and Crow's Nest Cottage.If you are looking for lots of restaurant options, movie theaters, amusement parks, bars, fast food, shopping, and crowds, Islesboro Island is NOT the place for you.

Our Meadow Pond Neighborhood: Crows Nest cottage is located “up-island” and looks across to the 20 acre, fresh water, Meadow Pond, a neat wildlife refuge for deer, birds, ducks, turtles, beaver, etc. You need a car on the island to get to the 2 small grocery stores, to the 2 restaurants and ice cream parlor, for speedy trips to local beaches and public playground, and to get to the ferry.

The island has hundreds of secluded and hidden coves and beaches. If you love the splendor of the Atlantic Ocean and wild Maine coast without droves of tourists, Islesboro is your place. There are dozens of secluded, beautiful coves and beaches -- both sandy and rocky -- within a 5 to 15 minute drive from the cottage. Or, pack a backpack and bike (or walk!!) to them....Explore them on foot or in a kayak. Pack picnic lunches and suppers and play Robinson Crusoe on your "private" island. One family happily emailed us: "What an amazing week we had! We spent countless hours walking on so many beaches! We collected so many shells and sea glass, they will be our priceless treasure forever - - so great!"
