Come unplug in a cozy cottage on a hundred acres of conservation land (Maine Coast Heritage Trust) in a very private cove on the rocky coast of a Down-East Maine island, 6 miles across the bay from Mt Desert Island and Acadia National Park. A short ferry ride from Bass Harbor brings you to Swans Island. Watch the tides ebb and flow, the Bald Eagles soar and the sun set over coastal Maine from your private deck. The dark night sky is full of stars and streaked with the Milky Way.

Stedet
The cottage is fully furnished with a well-equipped kitchen, a bath with flush toilet, an outdoor shower and 2 bedrooms that sleep 4 (maximum, please.)  The cozy living room has a woodstove, VCR/DVD system, CD player and excellent local radio reception.  There are over 350 video tapes of favorite and classic movies.  There are board games, cards, books and puzzles.  Wifi is available on the island at the ferry terminal, Townhall, and library.  Most cellular phones have service at the cottage.  
The first floor bedroom has a queen-sized bed, while the second floor loft bedroom has a full-sized bed overlooking the water.  The deck wraps around the ocean side of the cottage facing the coast and tiny Hen Island with nesting Bald Eagles in residence.  You will need to supply all your bed linens, kitchen linens and towels, as there is no laundry facility on the island.  Pillows and blankets are supplied in the bedrooms.
We seek to uphold the ethic of quiet and gentle living in this special place.  A dog would be considered with prior approval and deposit, though must be under owner’s control at all times and not left alone in the cottage.  The deck is not child safe, there are cleaning supplies under each sink and the electrical outlets are not child safe. We also ask that you be mindful of careful water use and disposal, given the “tight” septic system (meaning that all waste water must be pumped out and transported off-island.)  The running hot and cold water is not potable due to mineral content, but is fine for washing dishes and showering.
 Large containers of drinking water are kept in the cottage and need to be refilled at Townhall before your departure.  Or you may bring your drinking water.  Please remove ALL trash and waste (and that of your dog.)  The town dump and recycling facility is free for all and is located near our road.  Please separate recyclables from trash.

Gjestetilgang
You can use the entire property except the garden shed.


Please check the maine.gov website for COVID-19 travel restrictions.
The island asks for a 14 day quarantine. This will effect your ability to shop and tour. If you are looking for a vacation with privacy and quiet with an amazing view, this is the place!

Andre ting det er verdt å merke seg
Swan’s Island has a lovely small store (TIMS) with specialties, such as locally raised Maine beef, local fresh fish and clams, gelato from Maine, newspapers and essentials.  However, you should plan on bringing most of your groceries and beverages.  Alcoholic beverages are not available on island.  The cottage kitchen is stocked with herbs, spices, and condiments for your convenience.  But please plan to bring most of what you will need to eat and drink.
Back to the plumbing.  The water-saving toilet has 2 flush options; please choose the lowest-flow flush when you must flush.  And whenever possible, please don’t flush to preserve the septic tank for essentials.  Please put only human waste into the septic tank; NO feminine hygiene products and minimal TP.  THANK YOU!
In order to keep the rent as low as possible, we ask you to leave the cottage as clean as you found it.  There are cleaning supplies under the sinks, a vacuum cleaner and hand-vac.  Please vacuum before you leave and leave the kitchen and bathroom as you would hope to find them.  THANK YOU!  
Due to the remote location of the cottage we ask you to minimize the risk of fire at all times.  Use of tobacco is not allowed on this property.  We discourage outdoor grilling because of the vulnerable surrounding forest.  Candles should be reserved for emergency use and must be closely monitored at all times.  The woodstove must also be very cautiously used and only by those with woodstove experience.  There are space heaters available in the first floor bedroom, if additional electric heat is needed.  
There are great radio stations, including WERU, an eclectic community station at 89.9; Maine Public Radio at 90.5 and several stations that get the Boston Red Sox.  Please leave the Sony TV on channel 3 so that it will work with the VCR and CD players.

I am a husband, a father of two, a carpenter, a folk DJ at a community radio station and an owner of two rescue lab mixes. My wife is a nurse practitioner. We live on Cape Cod in a solar powered house. I was off the grid for 25 years. It was lots of work but so rewarding. We love going to Swan’s Island!
