ON THE REACH
This 4-5 bedroom, 2 bath shingled waterfront, full-season cottage exudes quintessential Vinalhaven charm. Enjoy the views of The Reach, Vinalhaven's famous waterway entry, from the extensive back deck, or sit in the living room or kitchen and feel the summer breeze as you watch the ferry and lobster boats pass by. This is a lovely, perfectly situated, private get-away.
Leave your busy work life and obligations home and bring only your books, art materials, and imagination. Let the beautiful oceanside setting relax your mind and renew your sense of self and family.
Conveniently located on The Reach, just a 15 minute walk to the ferry and town, or two minutes by car. This is the perfect setting to enjoy all that Vinalhaven has to offer.
The first floor enjoys amble living space, with comfortable couches and chairs. The living room, dining room, and open kitchen look out onto the Reach and Green's Island, creating an incredible space for entertaining, conversation, laughter, and the creation of new memories.
The kitchen is fully equipped for all your culinary needs and has a large slate-tiled center island for great conversation and where extra hands can help make meal preparation a family event. Is there really anything better than lobster fresh from the ocean and homemade blueberry or blackberry pie? I think not.
Eat by candlelight in the dining room or out on the deck and enjoy the glorious colors of the sunset.
Sliding glass doors reach out to a large deck that spans the entire length of the house, overlooking the lawn and the ocean. There is plenty of seating, including beautiful teak furniture and classic Adirondack chairs. A gas grill is available for all your grilling needs. Beautiful garden plantings and surround the house.
The first floor features two bedrooms and a bathroom with a shower. A laundry room is also located on the first floor.
The second floor is divided into two separate areas. The front area has two bedrooms (one with two twin beds and a full bed, the other with a queen size bed) and a full bath, while the other side of the house faces the ocean and has a beautiful TV room, with wrap-around windows, and a loft bedroom.
You can choose to watch TV/Netflix or enjoy the fantastic views from this second floor living room. This room also includes a day bed and a pullout couch with a full size mattress. Also, from this area there is a ladder which leads to a loft that includes yet another full sized bed.
