Quiet, waterfront retreat on Maine's beautiful St. George Peninsula.

The space
Long Cove East is a newly renovated waterfront cottage in the Clark Island area of St. George. Drive down a dirt road, through the woods, into the field of old apple trees that opens onto stunning Long Cove. Long Cove East is a private 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage with a large deck with 180 degree views of the ocean.

Here you can launch your kayaks or paddle boards and pull them up onto the bank until you are ready to go again. You can also swim or fish off the smooth rocks at high tide. The 10 foot tides provide views of an ever-changing land/seascape.

The cottage is away from it all, yet close enough to walk to a sandy beach or swim in an island quarry during the day and later, see the stars in the dark night sky with no light pollution. In the morning you can hear the drone of lobster boats leaving to fish for the day and watch eagles, terns, osprey and other sea birds right out the windows.

Inside the cottage you will find 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped with a gas stove, dishwasher, microwave and bottom freezer refrigerator. Stools placed around the stove island provide a great spot for conversation with those preparing meals.

There is a living room /dining area on this floor, as well as a full bathroom and a bedroom with a queen sized bed and a desk under the window with water views.

The second floor consists of a full bath and a family bedroom with a queen bed and 2 twins. Also on this floor is a semi-private space for reading or to play games and do puzzles.

The cottage is equipped with WiFi, TV, A/C, heat and washer/dryer, wood stove. It is just as cozy for a single couple or two or a family with children. The cottage sleeps. 6.

The town of St George on the St. George Peninsula, consists of two distinct villages, Tenants Harbor and Port Clyde with areas such as Martinsville, Clark Island, Spruce Head in between. The cottage is located halfway down the Peninsula, equidistant from the authentic fishing village of Port Clyde with it’s lighthouse and mail boat to Monhegan Island and the vibrant city of Rockland with many restaurants, museums, shops, live entertainment and galleries.

Saint George, Maine, United States

Long Cove East is off the Clark Island Road that ends at the causeway to the Clark Island Preserve, a newly acquired public space only a 10 minute walk from the cottage. The quiet road is great for walking or bike riding anytime of day.
The area was once a thriving village of workers and their families coming from Finland, Scotland, Italy among other places, to ply their skills in the many quarries. When walking to the causeway one can pick out buildings that once had stores, the post office, a social hall and boarding homes. The Craignair Inn was one such boarding house and now serves dinners year round at the Causeway Restaurant.
Clark Island Beach, is here as well. This is a great spot for families, with tidal pools and long sand expanses. It's somewhat remote location with few parking spots makes for lots of room to spread out and explore.
Rockland with it's many restaurants, museums, shops and galleries is a 15-20 minute ride away. Also 15 minutes in the other direction, you will find Port Clyde, an authentic fishing village complete with a general store, lighthouse and museum, ice cream shop, the boat to Monhegan Island for a nice day trip.

I love Maine and can think of no other place I would rather live. After high school in Massachusetts, I attended the University of Maine and have stayed ever since, marrying another person "from away" and raising three daughters who now live all over the place. I love the ocean and the ever-changing natural scenery. I love to grow food, to travel, and to spend time with friends enjoying all the area has to offer. We have rented our cottage seasonally for many years and just this year added on and winterized it, making it a year round destination spot.
