Description of the Matinicus Island vacation cottage rental
Relaxing oceanfront get-away cottage on a secluded island 20 miles off the coast of "DownEast Maine" ... with amenities to make your stay comfortable. The perfect place to enjoy the natural serenity and harmony of old Maine. Enjoy the sunrise over the nearby islands as you sip your morning coffee on the deck and watch the small ocean community slowly come to life. This spacious (1000 sq') 2-story cottage, that can comfortably sleep up to six people, is charmingly furnished. The first floor has a queen bed in one bedroom, and a queen and two twin beds in the other. A full bathroom is accessed from the common hallway with a large deck overlooking the ocean. The second floor has a large oak dining table (seats 6) and a fully equipped kitchen. An open, spacious living area with easy chair and two couches (one is fold-down double futon bed) opening onto a deck overlooking the open-ocean and nearby islands. Live lobsters can be delivered to your door by a local fisherman. Fresh bakery goods can be delivered to you by a local baker.

Watch fisherman steaming out to haul and land lobsters from this charming, newly constructed summer home overlooking picturesque Matinicus Harbor and working waterfront. A three-minute walk to harbor and a five-minute walk to a beautiful (& usually deserted), crescent-shaped sandy beach. Explore the many hiking trails to nearby bird sanctuaries, Hemlock forests, rocky ledge points, and other beautiful swimming beaches ... Kayak or take a boat ride to Criehaven Island and Matinicus Rock Island to see the Puffins. Bring a telescope for spectacular views of the stars and milky way like you have never seen. A nearby gift shop features island crafts and novelties. A weekly (Tuesdays only) local flea/farmer's market has bakery items, sandwiches, soft drinks, & island crafts. Extra provisions can be delivered by plane to a nearby landing strip from the mainland grocery store (Shaw's in Rockland) for a small fee ... weather permitting. Moorings are available and can be reserved ahead for an additional fee. Transportation to and from the island is accomplished via the state ferry, private ferry boats, airplane, and personal water crafts. Far from city lights the night sky at Matinicus Island is a wonder to behold ... bring your telescope! Owner's Website has more pictures and all of the details.

There is also something very mystical and spiritually healing about Matinicus Island ... perhaps it has to do with the limitless expanse of water, the quiet serenity, and the beautiful surroundings. There is more time and solitude for reflection and inner peace on Matinicus ... far away from the hustle & bustle of daily hectic life in a increasingly complicated world. Matinicus Island's lack of "distractions" and its very serene surroundings allows families more opportunities to bond and re-establish close relationships. MAINELY ... you should definately expect lots of "peace and quiet" at Hawthorne Place Cottage!

Dear Michael,
This is truly a wonderful spot! We walked all over the island and enjoyed every minute. We also enjoyed our friendly neighbors, dogs included. Thanks so much for sharing your dear Hawthorne Place with us.

I found Hawthorne Place cottage to be awesome! The place was clean and neat when I arrived ... and what a view! Every room has fantastic views of the ocean. The decks were a great place to relax and unwind. Matinicus Island is beautiful! I WILL DEFINATELY BE BACK!
Richard Hoffman, Nashua,NH

My husband and I stayed at Hawthorne Place last summer with our two children and we found the whole experience to be delightful! The cottage was neat, clean, and there was a gorgeous view of the ocean from every room.

The island itself is a treasure to behold and it was immediately intoxicating for us. Our children (Emily:9, Colton:6) were fascinated by the island and spent most of their time exploring the many trails & beaches.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone!
