The SpaceRustic, cozy, cottage on remote private island on Brandy Pond in Hancock County Maine. Fly in or drive and boat in, summer or fall. The area is really wilderness for about a 15 mile drive in. If someone has an SUV in your party, that is the best vehicle to take for the scenic journey in. After you arrive, we have a sciff with a motor that is very seaworthy that we will take you over to the island with. After an orientation on how the gas appliances work, we will then have you drive us back to the mainland so you can use the boat during your stay for fishing or exploring Brandy Pond's beauty.
Snowmobile in during winter months, weather permitting. This private getaway offers quiet and solitude. 2 Old Town otter Kayaks, and two lake canoes are ready to take you on a blissful cruise to see moose, beaver, and majestic bald Eagles. Wake to the call of the resident loons. The cabin offers three bedrooms , one with a queen size bed, one with a double, and a bunk room with extra wide singles. We also have a loft that sleeps two, usually kids choice! The living room couch can be made into a double bed as well and of course the island offers many places for tents if a family reunion is your desire.
It is equipped with gas lights, stove, fridge, coffee maker or French press, gas powered sink and water. A full kitchen with all utensils will fulfill any cooks desires. A large Lobstah pot is awaiting for you, if Lobstah is on the menu! We also have an outdoor grill for grilling.
Cell phones work well and can be charged using a generator we have set up. Remember to pack your phone charger. Please note: US Cellular works on the Island but we have realized AT & T does not, and Verizon only works on the deck.
Our outhouse is clean and unique. We also have a shower house.
For winter visitors by snowmobile we have a wood stove and a gas fireplace that warms up the cottage very nicely.
Brandy Pond is a 90 minute drive to Bar Harbor, Maine for fine dining and shopping. Hiking is abundant at Acadia National Park as well as natural sites of wonder. For snowmobilers, ITS84 is out the front door and Nicatous lake is a great destination for a terrific ride and a warm meal. Snow shoeing and cross country skiing here is perfect! Ice fishing is another feature available.

Other Things to NoteWe have recently been notified by the State of Maine that an occupancy tax will be imposed. Thus, our new nightly fee has been raised accordingly to include the tax, as advised by Airbnb. Please note: Renters that have already booked for 2016 still pay the same rate as when booked, however all have been sent a message explaining the extra fee upon arrival, so sorry about the change.
Good news though! We now have a generator for charging phones, It is a remote start and very quiet tucked outside the boat house. We do ask you use it on a limited basis. A full gas tank should last you for your stay if used conservatively. It is 110 current, bring your home phone chargers!
