Island Living

We would all love to own an island. However, it may not be in budget in 2022 or 2023. So what's the next best thing? How about renting an island?

Located right off the coast of Bar Harbor in Frenchman's Bay, Spectacle Island is a beautiful little oasis. The house on the island is a spectacle in itself. It's full of gorgeous, exposed beams and hardwood floors. The house features three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It also has a bunkhouse that actually hangs over the main beach on Spectacle.

Even though it's on an island, the house is very self-sufficient. Utilizing a combination of heating sources, the property produces its own power, water, and heat.

Remote Maine Island

The island might be small, but the beauty and wonder are endless. Enjoy birdwatching while exploring the Spectacle Island shoreline and landscaping.

The most unique aspect of the island has to be how travelers get there. Renters are fortunate enough to take a trip on an actual lobster boat. How cool is that? You can't get any more Maine than that.

Maine Island Vacation

Spectacle Island is the perfect spot for a honeymoon, fun family vacation, or just a spot to get away from it all for a few days. It's the ultimate Maine experience in the ultimate Maine location.
