    The SpaceWaterfront 3 bedroom home with world class sunsets: Stand in the living room and look out over Casco Bay, through our six, floor to ceiling picture windows, and capture the magic of Maine. Cliff Island is just three miles long and one mile wide. In the morning you might walk to the South Point, where the waves from the open ocean crash upon the native granite, In the afternoon, maybe some mackerel fishing down at the dock or swimming in the cove. The house is unpretentious but very comfortable. It’s situated on 5 mostly wooded acres, right on the shoreline with private beach which provides lots of solitude. And yet it’s an easy, 4 minute walk from the ferry wharf less than 1/4 mile away. You can see the ferry boat landing from the living room. (By the way, “meeting the noon boat” is the social event of the day.)

    The SpaceNew for 2017, we've done some renovations to the interior and porch of the house. Things are clean, new and more comfortable then ever! Hedman house is a 19th century island cottage that can sleep 4 adults plus 2 more (kids) on the fold out couch. It is a small house, but there are three bedrooms upstairs, two with queen size beds and one with a double bed. You can sleep three couples upstairs. The main floor has a small, bright living and dining room, spacious eat-in kitchen, and a large bathroom with full size tub & shower. There is a new TV, DVD player and a 1980's stereo that you can plug into with your smartphone or MP3 player. We have a good selection of books, puzzles and some board games, as well as rocks, shells and beach treasures all around the house. The wrap-around porch is great for enjoying morning coffee and afternoon drinks. The house is set back off the road, flanked by pine forest at the back and a large grassy lawn in front. The ocean is a five minute walk from the house - in all directions - or a two-minute bike ride down the road! When we stay at Hedman house, we take the walk down to the beach and enjoy the sunset everyday. It is a great beach to explore, with smooth sandy areas, rocky coast and small quiet coves. There are a few large white sand beaches on the south end of the island. South Beach attracts day trippers from Portland and can get busy on the weekends. No worries through, there is lots of beach! Long is a great island to relax and take in the sun on white sandy beaches, hiking along breathtaking rocky coastline, explore wooded pathways rich with moss covered rocks, beautiful ferns and pine trees. Enjoy the freshest Maine lobster caught right off shore. Long Island is a small gem. It’s the perfect place to enjoy the natural beauty and slower pace of Island life. It’s a great and very safe place for kids of all ages to explore and play, even on their own. On the island, there are two small general stores, one with a take-out counter and deck for enjoying very casual, lunch and dinner. There is the fun, old gift store, and the elementary school, with the new public library. You will find a few churches on the island, and a great Town Hall/recreation center that hosts daily art and activity classes during the summer. Visit the "Town of Long Island" web site for lots of good information and phone numbers for local businesses. A few roads connecting the two hundred or so homes on this three-mile-long island. Vehicle traffic is slow (20 mph) and minimal, most vacationers bike, walk or drive gulf carts to get around. There is usually an unofficial island driver, with whom you can arrange a ride from the dock to the house. This helps take visitors, their baggage, bikes and gear to their vacation spot. Bring your bikes, it's a great island for riding. There is also golf cart rentals on the island. You can inquire about them at the Boat House Beverage store, (near the ferry dock) or look it up online. Guest AccessWe have bikes, beach chairs an beach gear. There is a small outdoor gas grill, and a large porch for enjoying the yard. Interaction with GuestsWe live off the island, out of state. We rent the cottage for most of the summer and Fall to help offset the cost of this beautiful get-away. We have our good friend and "year round" neighbor looking after the placed for our guests, and making sure things are set for each arrival. We will have the house opened up and ready, with fresh bedding, linens and some goodies in the fridge. I recommend that you stop at a grocery on the main land, or at the Boat House Beverage on Long Island to pick-up some food upon your arrival. We are hoping for a bit of a cooperative rental, and rely on our guests leaving the cottage as they found it, clean and neat, for the next guests. The NeighborhoodLong Island is a quiet, slow paced get away vacation spot. The cottage is set back off the road, on a large lot in a clearing. There are just two houses in sight, through the trees. You can walk and bike the island, often only coming across a few other people. There is the new library, town hall and small historic museum to visit, as well as the gift shop and two small general / grocery stores. For some fun there are tennis and basket ball court, a great playground, and books to read, or free wifi at the library. Getting AroundThe house is about a mile from the ferry dock landing. There is the trusty Silver Saab Station-wagon "island car" that we provide for you to use. It's become a seasonal fixture, and will be at the ferry when you arrive. Please ask me about the its availability before booking. Once settled in at the house, we ride our bikes just about everywhere, instead of driving. You can also rent a gulf cart and or arrange ahead of time, with the unofficial island driver, to get a ride from the dock. Other Things to NoteThis is a beautiful natural retreat. Rest assured, cell phones do work at the house and all over the island, but we do not have cable or wifi in the house. If you need to be online and your smartphone can't do the job, there is free wifi at the library 24/7. The island is great for relaxing, enjoying good food, friends and family, play board games, and get back to the basics. There are numerous beaches, rocky cost lines, old forests and natural sites to explore.

The island has a library, tennis court, several sand beaches and a small grocery store that is open from May through October. There are walking/running/biking trails, and a general atsmophere of beauty and tranquility. Interaction with GuestsOwner is available by phone or internet if a problem occurs. If need be guests will be met by owner upon arrival. Other Things to NoteRental by week or month only. Cars remain in Portland where there are various parking lots available. Average cost is $10/day. Water supply is from a well. I advise guests to refill water container for drinking from a water supply a short distance from the cottage. There will be a full container at the cottage upon arrival. Otherwise water is fine for cooking, cleaning and bathing. Septic system is fragile. Thus cottage does not support more that four guests.

There are flowers and trees, two cats and a large white poodle to add to your enjoyment. We have beds for a total of 8 guests in 5 rooms (3 two person rooms and 2 one person rooms) on the second floor of the original sea captain's house. Two two-person rooms and 1 one-person room have total privacy. The other two rooms, adjacent to the Captain's Room, are "pullman" style, similar to a train in that you must walk through one room to get to the next. This is perfect for a family or close friends. The first two rooms have full size beds. The third room has a twin size bed and access to the secondary staircase to the first floor. All beds in our home have memory foam toppers, plush mattress pads and at least 400 count cotton sheets. The rooms, on the original second floor, share a bathroom centrally located at the top of the main staircase. The outside shower (available April - October), private and constructed with blue stone, and a first floor lav are also available to guests to help streamline readying for scheduled events. Guest AccessGuests have use of our public rooms and grounds, including the "back bank", which is a great place for sitting and sipping while watching egrets, herons, belted king fishers and the MV Islander's comings and goings. Breakfast can be enjoyed in the kitchen, dining room or backyard, depending on guest preference and weather. Dietary preferences and requirements are taken into consideration when I'm informed in advance. Guests may use our kitchen, bring food to prepare, order a food delivery from Whole Foods in advance of arrival or make arrangements with me regarding joining our household for lunches and dinners. If you'd like, accomplished professional chefs and gourmet cooks, who make their home on the Island, may be available to cook up a special meal for you. Fresh lobster is available from local lobstermen throughout the year if you'd like a traditional steamed lobster dinner. Breakfast foods and supplies are available, let me know how I can help you manage lunch and dinners. Groceries can be purchased from Doughty's Island Market, open all year and just a short walk down the South Road, but you'll find frozen meats, not fresh. Doughty's is also a great place to pick up a sandwich, a slice of pizza, a cup of coffee and if you're lucky - Julie's award winning chili in the colder months. It's closed on Wednesdays except during the busy summer season. Wi-Fi is available throughout the house. Our formal living room doubles as our media room with a 10' screen and surround sound. There are water color paints and art paper, board games, chess and playing cards, as well as many books for our guests enjoyment. Guests may use our washer and dryer and laundry supplies following my "tutorial". Interaction with GuestsOur home is spacious and provides opportunity for quiet privacy as well as camaraderie. I follow my guests' lead. I can move about the house quietly, without intruding or comfortably interact with guests. Most guests sit back, relax and make themselves at home. I'm always available to answer questions or tend to concerns. The NeighborhoodOne can find many things to do on Chebeague Island: reading a book, taking a nap, painting, walking the roads or wooded paths, biking, sailing, climbing the rocks at Deer Point, walking the sandbar to Little Chebeague at low tide, bird watching, fishing, soaking up the sun or taking a dip in Casco Bay, collecting sea glass, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, visiting the Museum, Library and Doughty's Island Market or dropping in at Miller Design and more. May through October, the Clam Shack, the Chebeague Island Inn and The Niblic offer delicious foods. Getting AroundGuests travel to the Island by ferry from Portland on Casco Bay Lines or from the Yarmouth area on the Chebeague Transportation Company's Islander or Pied Piper. Check the websites of the two companies for schedules and parking information. One of our Airbnb guests shared the following, "Unless you are traveling with just a backpack and no car to park, Chebeague Transportation Company is the easiest way to travel to the Island. There is no worry of finding a parking space or having to lug groceries and travel bags." Just pull up next to the bus at the Rte 1 lot in Cumberland, load your belongings onto the bus, pay for your parking and boat ticket, park your car, climb onto the bus and you'll be on your way to the ferry. The bus departs the lot promptly, arrive 5 to 10 minutes before scheduled departure time so you're sure to be on the bus. The Island is small and very walkable. We can give you a tour in our jeep or van before you venture out on your own. Other Things to NoteChebeague Island is all about community, it is not necessarily a tourist destination. If you're looking for quaint shops and cafes, check out the Old Port in Portland before or after you visit Chebeague. Many artists and craftsmen make their home on Chebeague Island. I will be happy to organize a personal studio tour for you if you are interested in viewing paintings, sculptures, wooden bowls and vases, wooden carvings and signs, hand made toys, original jewelry, hand loomed rugs and towels and more.

Getting AroundGuests travel to the Island by ferry from Portland on Casco Bay Lines or from the Yarmouth area on the Chebeague Transportation Company's Islander or Pied Piper. Check the websites of the two companies for schedules and parking information. One of our Airbnb guests shared the following, "Unless you are traveling with just a backpack and no car to park, Chebeague Transportation Company is the easiest way to travel to the Island. There is no worry of finding a parking space or having to lug groceries and travel bags." Just pull up next to the bus at the Rte 1 lot in Cumberland, load your belongings onto the bus, pay for your parking and boat ticket, park your car, climb onto the bus and you'll be on your way to the ferry. The bus departs the lot promptly, arrive 5 to 10 minutes before scheduled departure time so you're sure to be on the bus. The Island is small and very walkable. We can give you a tour in our jeep or van before we send you out on your own. Other Things to NoteChebeague Island is all about community, it is not necessarily a tourist destination. If you're looking for quaint shops and cafes, check out the Old Port in Portland before or after you visit Chebeague. Many artists and craftsmen make their home on Chebeague Island.

    The SpaceThe 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. Will add pictures when the site lets me. Guest AccessGuests will have access to the kitchen (refrigerator, stove, mcrowave and coffee maker), dining, living areas and deck. There are 4 bikes. 2 are in great shape, 2 ok shape. I will provide a map of the island showing beaches and interesting places. Interaction with GuestsInternet 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. The NeighborhoodI love the closeness (5 minute walk) to the boatyard and the Niblic. Great beach there for shells. Our little area is so cottage- Maine, all built in early 1900's. Cottages are not too close, just right. Getting AroundChebeague Island is walkable. Great place to bring your bikes.The boatyard is just down the road with wonderful muffins, great lunch you can enjoy on their deck. If you need transportation, I have a van, but it is an 'island car'! That means the back doesn't doesn't have regular seats, but beach chairs! This is island living. Other Things to NoteIf 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!

    The SpaceWe hope your love our house as much as we do. While our jobs are hi-tech, our lifestyle is simple. We do not have cable TV, however we offer a screen for movies. This leaves you with plenty of time for books, projects, art, good food, puzzles and stimulating conversation. We imagine you selected our home for more of the same. The house was built in the 1840's, but was entirely renovated in 2011-2012, and is a year-round home. You should expect all the same comforts of your own home on this island. The home is currently listed on VRBO if you want to read guest feedback. Guest AccessYou will have access to the entire home which is situated on 3 acres, at the top of the hill. The shore is a 10-minute walk through the woods, near the boat yard. The island pool & tennis courts are located at the Rec Center, about a half mile around the corner and up the road. The island market is nearly 1 mile, towards the center of the island. We frequently bike to the market with the kids for treats on our excursions. Your travel guide document will provide a great deal more information when you confirm your stay. Interaction with GuestsWe will not be present on the island this summer to welcome you, but we are one hour away and ready to be here for you should you need any assistance. We have many custodians (friends) who can help you once you arrive. Other Things to NoteThe Chebeague Wave We want to be good neighbors as we pass by, so you’ll see a lot of waving as happy strangers cross your path. Please join them. Stop what ever you’re doing and wave. It may seem strange at first, but trust us, you’ll miss this when you’re gone. It’s just one of those island “things”.

Private and off-the-road yard with your private access to beach. Expansive 180 degree view of Casco Bay - see the ferry, lobster boats and recreational boaters, as well as bird watching all day, a sunset each night. **Private Hot/Cold outdoor shower only. 1/2 bath indoors. Guest AccessKey is in lockbox by front door. Code will be given 2 days prior to guest arrival. Interaction with GuestsAvailable by phone, text and email, as well as in-person in case of emergency. The NeighborhoodThe Town of Long Island is a sweet island community that includes beautiful beaches, quiet coves, tide pools, harbors, country lanes, forest trails and the cool sea breezes one would expect to find on an ocean island. Long Island is a year-round fishing community offering community events, outdoor activities, good fishing, tennis, general stores, and outdoor activities. Getting AroundCars may be shipped to the island by reservation only at a cost of about $120 each way. The ferry only carries one car at a time so this must be worked out well in advance. (See Casco Bay Lines Website (URL HIDDEN) Cars can also be shipped via barge and the cost is comparable to the ferry. The service is more frequent although there is not a regular schedule (See (URL HIDDEN) A car is not necessary for your stay and we recommend bringing bicycles. The house is about a mile and a half from the ferry. You can walk to the other end of the island in about 45 minutes. A taxi service ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) normally meets the ferry and is the best way to get to the house when you arrive. Lorinda Valls ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) also provides transportation. Call ahead to be sure they are there for your ferry. Rates are reasonable and tours and other transportation needs on island are available For easy exploration of all parts of the island or the other islands, bicycles are ideal. If you bring bikes, the cost of a bike ticket or shipping it on the ferry is around $5.00. Golf cart rentals are available for daily or weekly rates. Call Rita (Peache) Stevens at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) or (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) or Barb and Dave Ramey (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) (EMAIL HIDDEN) for a reservation. If interested, do this NOW as demand will outstrip supply. PARKING “THE CAR” Parking is available at or near the ferry. Lots change year to year so watch for signs advertising “Parking” as you drive down Commercial Street. There is parking, but it gets a little tighter each year in peak season. The closer to the ferry the more expensive the parking which can range from $36/day to $8/day in the further away lots. If you do not have parking lined up, leave adequate time or simply put the car in the Casco Bay Lines or other convenient garage and return another day and move to cheaper parking. Recommend you go to the Casco Bay Lines website (URL HIDDEN) and/or click on the following parking link: (URL HIDDEN) for the latest information. One option that worked out well last year is at the Portland Fish Pier (#5 on the map) which you will drive by on the way in. Even if you cannot get daily parking, a one month pass might turn out far cheaper than other alternatives, but you must order it in advance and pick it up personally at the Spring St. garage when you arrive. If you can live without your car and are coming from the Boston, New York or other areas, Amtrak’s Downeaster, Vermont Transit, Concord Trailways and other bus lines plus many airlines service the Portland International Jetport and all are but a few miles from Casco Bay Lines by taxi or Uber. In addition, a new “U-Car” sharing program now has two cars outside the ferry for short term rentals if you leave your car at home. You need to join for a one time fee. Other Things to NoteTake exit 44 Portland (I-295) off the Maine Turnpike, pay the toll and go 2.1 miles to Exit 4 (Rt. 1A/Portland Waterfront). After crossing the inner harbor bridge you will exit right at the lights to the Commercial St./Waterfront signs and follow Commercial Street (the waterfront) about 1.7 miles to the Casco Bay Island Transit District Terminal at the corner of Franklin St. and Commercial St. Turn right into the terminal to unload your gear and luggage and any freight to be shipped (see signs). RosePurchase tickets inside and park car (see below). Access to the island is via Casco Bay Lines ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)), a year round ferry service (oldest continuous operation in America!). The 6 mile trip takes 40-55 minutes, depending on the number of stops at other islands, amount of mail, freight, etc. Ticket prices vary with season, but will be around $10 round trip for adults, half fare for children 5-9 and for seniors, and free for children under 5. Five round trip commuter tickets may be purchased for your immediate family only at substantial discount. Anything you cannot reasonably carry on board in one trip must be shipped. Freight rates are very reasonable and signage at the terminal will guide you to the drop-off point. Pack and label such freight well and leave a minimum of 30 minutes lead time for shipping on the same boat you are on. All this may seem a bit confusing at first, but after you have done it once it will be a simple procedure. Remember, it is not the end of the world if you miss the ferry in the summer as the next one is usually only an hour or two later. (Schedule and other information (URL HIDDEN) ) Water taxis are also available at the head of the wharf –Portland Express Water Taxi ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) (URL HIDDEN) or Sea Taxi ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)). These run around $65/trip for up to six persons. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the waterfront while you wait. The outer part of the ferry pier is a public park and popular fishing spot as well as a most scenic walk for great vistas of the harbor and shipping traffic. The murals of whales on the blue building to the east across from the ferry terminal are the work of artist “Wyland”. Once on the ferry, Long Island is usually the 3rd or 4th stop, but it can be 1st or 2nd on a few runs, depending on schedule. Anticipate a ride of 40-50 minutes.

        The SpaceSandpiper Cottage is a circa 1903 Maine island cottage directly on the ocean. This is a laid-back cottage for laid-back folks. Relax on our hammock, Adirondack chairs, lounge chairs, or cushioned mats directly on our shorefront ledge while enjoying views of the Atlantic Ocean, Jewell Island, Fisherman's Cove, and the house on The Bluffs where the 1987 movie "The Whales Of August" was filmed (starring Bette Davis, Lillian Gish, Ann Southern, and Vincent Price--we have the film in our cottage DVD library). Crack open fresh lobster on the picnic table overlooking the ocean. Or paddle around the cove on our standup paddleboard or Walker Bay 8-foot dinghy. (You can launch from the Fisherman's Cove boat launch beach, which is a hundred feet or so from the cottage. Please use life preservers.) Kitchen includes refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and electric griddle. Sleeping accommodations include first floor bedroom with full bed and twin bunk bed, futon sofa bed, and second floor queen bed in the Crow's Nest loft accessible by ladder (the loft and ladder are for use by adults only, please). We opted not to get internet or cable television in our vacation cottage, to encourage our children (and ourselves) to enjoy the outdoors, explore the island, nap, fish, read a book, play board games and card games, and otherwise unplug and unwind. (Also an excellent excuse for guests to avoid work and email while on vacation.) However, we do love movies, and have a flat panel TV, DVD player, sound bar, subwoofer, and decent collection of DVDs for kids and adults (including the movie "The Whales of August," which was filmed in the house on The Bluffs, which you can see from the cottage). Also, if needed, the island library offers free WiFi and internet access on the covered, screened-in front porch. We have a telephone for local calls. Since our cottage is located on ledge directly on the ocean, our bathroom features an environmentally-friendly and sanitary Incinolet electric toilet, which can be used year-round. Simple to use, you: (1) drop a disposable bowl liner (provided) into the toilet bowl before every use (which catches all waste plus toilet paper); (2) flush the bowl by stepping on the floor pedal; and (3) push the start button to incinerate all waste automatically. (We plan to add a second traditional flush toilet and other renovations in the future, and note that our current pricing reflects a pre-construction discount.) Rates reflect 9% Maine lodging tax. Guest AccessGuests bring their own groceries, which can be purchased nearby in Portland at grocery stores such as Trader Joe's (which also sells beer and wine), Whole Foods, Hannaford, Micucci, or Rosemont Grocer. Some of these grocers offer concierge services to assist with grocery orders, and delivery to Casco Bay Lines or shipment by ferry to Cliff Island. Cliff Island has extensive property in conservation land, permanently protecting its rural atmosphere. There are sandy beaches, a tidal swim cove (Griffon's Cove), rocky shoreline, and trails for walking, running, and biking. The island is the only year-round island in Casco Bay that has all unpaved roads and, while cars are allowed, most people walk, bicycle, or use golf carts for transportation. There is also a local taxi run by Chester Pettengill ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)), a friendly life-long island resident who typically greets the ferry (he has painted buoys on his minivan antenna), or you can walk to the cottage on the dirt road from the ferry terminal (a 10 or 15-minute walk). Residents lobster, work on local island-related businesses, or commute to the mainland for work. You can buy the freshest lobster straight off the boat from our wonderful neighbor or other fishermen who live year-round on the island. As its name suggests, Cliff Island has rocky ledges and cliffs (in addition to sandy beaches), including oceanfront ledge in front of the cottage. Our cottage and shorefront ledge are not "child-proof," and there is a ladder to the loft bedroom (for use by adults only), so please be responsible and carefully supervise any children at all times in and around the cottage and keep them away from the edge of cliffs or the ledge. Interaction with GuestsNew to AirBnB in 2016. We live nearby on the mainland in Portland, Maine near the ocean, and are available by telephone. We are happy to provide recommendations for award-winning restaurants in the Old Port and answer any questions. The NeighborhoodCliff Island is a year-round island in Casco Bay, and the last stop “down the bay” on the Casco Bay Lines ferry. Shaped like an “H,” the island has extensive property in conservation land, permanently protecting its rural atmosphere. The island is the only year-round island in Casco Bay that has all unpaved roads and, while cars are allowed, most people walk, bicycle, or use golf carts for transportation. Cliff Island is part of the City of Portland, Maine. The community of Cliff Island consists of approximately 60 year-round residents but swells to nearly 200 in the summer. Residents are involved in a number of community organizations including the Cliff Island Association (CIA), the island library, the Cliff Island Historical Society, and the Cliff Island “ACE” organization (Athletics, Conservation and Education), which runs a wide variety of events for year-round and summer visitors involving the environment, athletics, exercise, arts & crafts, and entertainment activities. Cliff Island has a library, schoolhouse, post office, tennis court, church, community hall, several sand beaches, a ballfield, two playgrounds, and a small grocery store and cafe (cash only) that is open from May through October. Explore sandy beaches, hunt for hermit crabs and shells, or fish from the shore or ferry dock. Buy lobster fresh off the boat from a local island lobsterman. Getting AroundFerry (Casco Bay Lines) Cliff Island is accessible year-round by ferry from Portland, Maine on Casco Bay Lines. Bring binoculars, snacks, and beer, wine, or other beverages of choice to enjoy on the 60- to 90-minute scenic cruise through the islands of Casco Bay (the cruise could run a little longer on a busy holiday weekend if there is a lot of freight to unload, but the Casco Bay Lines ferry schedule is usually pretty accurate). Watch for harbor porpoises, seals, bald eagles, osprey, and other marine life. Ferry captains often provide interesting historic information about the islands. Keep an eye out for Fort Gorges, a former U.S. military fort built on Hog Island Ledge in Casco Bay, Maine between 1858 to 1864, which is now a park accessible by boat only and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. The ferry stops at other Casco Bay islands en route between Cliff Island and Portland. Water Taxi Water taxi service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, approximately 20 minutes from Portland, Maine to Cliff Island. Airport If arriving by airplane at Portland International Jetport (PWM), a taxi or Uber driver can bring you from the airport to the Casco Bay Lines ferry terminal in Portland. Boat For guests with their own boat, we have a deepwater mooring in front of the cottage, and can provide further information on request. Our cottage is approximately 20 minutes from downtown Portland by boat. Parking Cars remain in Portland, where there are various parking lots and garages available. (Some nearby parking lots are around $10/day, but some garages are as much as $50/day, so check around, and leave plenty of time to walk to the ferry terminal and browse shops and restaurants in the Old Port.) The Casco Bay Lines and City of Portland websites have links to parking maps with some rate info, and you may find other info online to find the best rates and options. The parking garage at the ferry terminal is expensive and often full, so please plan ahead. Island Taxi Chester Pettengill ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)), a year-round resident of Cliff Island, provides a taxi service on the island, and he typically greets every ferry. Walking/Biking/Running Cliff Island is approximately 2.5 miles long, and around 1 mile wide at the widest point, and is very walkable on the dirt road that encircles the island or on trails. Our cottage is approximately a 15-minute walk from the ferry terminal. Other Things to NoteGuests bring their own groceries. The small store and cafe on the island has a very limited selection and variable hours, and accepts cash only. There is an ATM in the Casco Bay Lines ferry terminal in Portland, but no ATM on the island, so bring cash if you wish to buy lobster. There are a number of options for buying groceries for your stay on Cliff Island. Contact the service desk at the store of your choice for specific shopping times and fees. Whole Foods The Whole Foods store in Portland calls itself Maine’s only Certified Organic Grocer, with the largest selection of natural and organic products in the state. Whole Foods offers personal shopping services and island deliveries Monday through Friday. You can call the store to place your order. Ask to speak to a member of the provisions team for details and schedules. Trader Joe’s Portland also has a Trader Joe’s, the original Californian based importer, who took the 1950’s and 60’s cultural fad of Tiki chic to new heights. TJ’s now prides itself on providing fresh and imported foods of value and quality from coast to coast in the U.S. You can call the local store. Hannaford Supermarket When you’re in Portland, you’re also in the home of one of New England’s largest supermarket chains, Hannaford. The company was founded in 1883 by Arthur Hannaford, who sold fruits and vegetables from a produce cart on the docks of Portland. The company now has stores through New England and New York State and is one of the largest supermarket chains in the country. When you finish your shopping, the store will box your groceries and deliver them to Casco Bay Lines, who will deliver them to the island. They offer island delivery on Tuesday. Rosemont Market Rosemont is a neighborhood market that offers gourmet products, local meats and cheeses, fine wine and beer, freshly baked breads and produce. Rosemont offers island delivery year-round to the islands. Check out the Rosemont website for locations to their area stores, one of which is directly across the street from Casco Bay Lines. Micucci Grocery For over 60 years, the Micucci family has been offering the finest imported Italian foods. At Micucci Grocery, you will find a quality wine selection, a full deli, pasta, cheeses and premium imported foods. Micucci’s is in walking distance from Casco Bay Lines. For more information, check out the Micucci website.

The market is open year round on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Check the website for the location and hours. Shaw's Supermarket Westgate Shaw’s Westgate offers grocery delivery service on Tuesdays. When you finish your shopping, the store will box your groceries and deliver them to Casco Bay Lines, who will deliver them to the island.

Contact them by email or telephone before placing an order online to arrange for island delivery. Standard Baking Co. Directly across the street from the Casco Bay Lines ferry terminal in Portland is Standard Baking Co., a family owned and operated business that has been part of downtown Portland since 1995. Handcrafted and baked throughout the day in their 12-ton, stone deck oven, you’ll find traditional French baguettes, hearty German Vollkornbrot, fragrant Focaccia, and all-organic Miche, made from 100% Maine grown and milled whole grains. Hand-rolled croissants, pain au chocolat, brioche, and scones are prepared in plain view in their open production bakery and often served still warm from our ovens. Everything they make embodies their commitment to artisanal methods, natural ingredients, and delicious food. We always stock up on delicious baked goods for the ferry ride and breakfasts on the island (we highly recommend the chocolate corks, croissants, morning buns, berry buckles, and other pastries). Old Port Spirits & Cigars Also conveniently located across the street from the Casco Bay Lines ferry terminal in Portland is Old Port Spirits & Cigars, where you can buy local craft beers, wine, and spirits for the ferry ride and the island. Jenn's Cliff Island Store and Cafe There is a small grocery store and cafe on Cliff Island that serves pizza, soups, sandwiches, ice cream, and a very limited selection of beer, wine, and grocery items. Hours vary. Cash only. Water supply is from a well. We advise guests to refill a water container for drinking from a water supply a short distance from the cottage. There will be a full container at the cottage upon arrival. Otherwise, the well water is fine for cleaning and bathing. (We are planning a new water filtration system and other renovations, and note that our current pricing reflects a pre-construction discount.)

The NeighborhoodWhy we call it "Our Happy Place" is that we love being at Potts Point where we have beautiful views of Casco Bay, a peaceful neighborhood and a few conveniences like being able to walk to the beach, Dick's Lobster Wharf and Estes Restaurant. Getting AroundAs much as we love Potts Point we also love to explore. There are great trails along 123. We often dine at the Dolphin Marina that has consistently great food especially their lobster stew that is served with warm blueberry muffin. We eat there often! Next to the Dolphin is Erica's lobster shack which has good lobster rolls. For breakfast, we often go to Schoolhouse cafe which serves local produce, meats and eggs for breakfast and lunch. Across the street from the cafe is the Vegetable Corner where you get fresh vegetables, meat and Maine scallops. The Ship to Shore is great for beer and wine and sundry grocery items ...and gas. If you are willing to drive further Brunswick has good restaurants, quaint shops, Bowdoin college entertainment and essential grocery stores. If you want a day trip only ~25 minutes to Freeport, 45 minutes to Portland and 30 minutes to Bath. Other Things to NoteWe blame Mother Nature for the cancellations in 2016! There was a severe drought in the Harpswell area which caused our well to go dry. All is well again!

                Spend your vacation on a lovely quaint island off the coast of Maine. Chebeague Island is relatively easy to get to and located close to Portland, our biggest city and other Maine icons such as LLBean with it's fabulous shopping experience and Outdoor Discovery School. We have lowered our rates a bit to absorb part of the fee that HomeAway and VRBO charge our guests. We have returned to this site after two years with a new (built in 2015) energy efficient home which we are renting to vacation families on a limited basis. We are excited to present this home for your enjoyment. We have the master and downstairs bath to present pictures.

Center of the house is open to the roof beams. First floor bath has a large old fashioned sink and a good size shower, cabinet for towels. This home is situated on a charming side road on 4.5 acres of property. A lawn and garden has been carved out of the surrounding 60 to 80' tall trees to site the house. It is passive solar and modern (but not stark) inside with an open floor plan. A large entry greets you as you enter from the wrap around porch with a view throughout the first floor. The kitchen has a large French door refrigerator with two drawers below, a Farmhouse sink and island with seating. We have all the pots, dishes, glasses and silverware you need including a lobster pot and everything you need for a fabulous lobster dinner. The 100 year old dining table seats six.

It is heated with mini splits (heat exchanger) which also produces air conditioning if needed. There is a heat pump hot water heater in the basement.

If you stay for a week and go to one each day you will not see them all. Take our kite to the beach.Exploring this island and the many beaches is a requirement. Take a walk outside either through the woods or down the road to beach. Or, just enjoy the birds, turkeys and deer that come into the yard. Chebeague has two ferry services, one owned by the islanders, gift shops, island grocery, library and many places to have lunch or dinner with views. Have lunch at the Inn on the porch one day. You will be glad you did. It is a short hop to the mainland to sightsee or have dinner in Portland. Portland is one of the great foodie cities in the northeast, while keeping the ambience of an old New England city. Also, the museums and shops are excellent. Well worth a day trip into town. Or, take a short gratifying trip to the LLBean store in Freeport. It is an icon of Maine. The Maine coast is worthwhile to explore for a day trip.

Cliff Island is just three miles long and one mile wide. In the morning you might walk to the South Point, where the waves from the open ocean crash upon the native granite, In the afternoon, maybe some mackerel fishing down at the dock or swimming in the cove. The house is unpretentious but very comfortable. It’s situated on 5 mostly wooded acres, right on the shoreline with private beach which provides lots of solitude. And yet it’s an easy, 4 minute walk from the ferry wharf less than 1/4 mile away. You can see the ferry boat landing from the living room. (By the way, “meeting the noon boat” is the social event of the day.)

                  Beautifully up-kept and modernized classic cottage built circa 1897. Fantastic views, and great proximity to many island activities. This 3 bedroom summer house just had a massive upgrade: full bathroom downstairs, and halfbath upstairs are brand new, and are in immaculate condition. The living room/music room sounds great with antique piano and small drumset. Outdoor shower is fantastic, and front porch has commanding views of the water.

                  Island cottage right on the the ocean. Exquisite view of ocean and islands. Chebeague Island: This is the largest Casco Bay island not connected by bridge to the mainland. The history of Chebeague includes Native Americans for whom the island was a favorite summer spot. Europeans and then Americans have inhabited the islands for over 300 years. The fishing community is historic, authentic, and still in tact. You can get live lobsters delivered to your door. This is truly the best tasting lobster! Our view is of the outer islands and 'Halfway Light' lighthouse, and the edge of the Atlantic ocean. The daytime ranges from fogbound grey to brilliant blue sky and sea. At sunset the islands light up one by one. At night, the moonlight's reflection pours through the islands like spilt milk. During the day, running, walking, cycling, beach combing, exploring nearby islands, swimming, golf, tennis, boating, and reading are all good things to do. Being off the mainland is in itself an excellent activity. Drive or walk: Chebeague is small enough (1.5x4.5 miles) to get around easily without a car. If you want to bring your car over be sure to make arangements early! Chebeague transit is one way to have your car barged over. 846-3700
