So you finally have a weekend free and you want to spend it with the family. I invite you to join me here on Swan's Island for a return to simple things. Included here are two rooms with a shared bath that are perfect for a couple with kids.

The space

This home was built by my grandfather in 1927. It has harbor views from almost every room and is cozy no matter the season. This rental includes two bedrooms with one queen bed and two extra-long twin beds that are connected by a full bathroom with tub.

Guest access

Guests have access to all parts of the house and property besides my room and bathroom.

Interaction with guests

I will be present in the home for the duration of the stay and am happy to provide advice and stories about the island. I am happy to provide breakfast, please let me know ahead of time if you have any allergies or requests and I will do my best to accommodate.

Other things to note

I I have a regal cat named Muschi who is a Maine Coon, a beautiful breed native to the region. She is friendly and loves attention but children should be gentle and allow her to come to them.

Swans Island is a wonderful place! A lovely getaway from the hustle & Bustle. Nancy was a great host and made our trip so easy with advice regarding the ferry and places to see. She also cooked us a delicious breakfast which sent us on our way full & happy.

Nancy was an outstanding and very friendly host. She knew when to offer assistance and when to give us our privacy. The house is lovely, bright and comfortable and the island is charming. The breakfast meals were delicious and Nancy was very helpful with her information about activities on the island.

Nancy's place looks out over the harbor and has a nice deck to sit out on. While simple, the accommodations are comfortable and clean and worked well for the four of us traveling together. Nancy was very welcoming and helpful and cooked us a full hot breakfast! We had a great stay

Nancy runs a nice B&B in a beautiful spot. She will explain the ferry to you when you're considering a stay with her. We just returned and reservations were a must during summer season as a huge line of waiting cars had formed by early afternoon and the ferry is small. She makes a good breakfast, has a Keurig for coffee to your heart's content, and has a regal cat that is quite friendly. The island has some nice beaches, a few crafts shops/galleries and is best enjoyed by slowing down... For us, two days was the right amount of time.

When I was younger my grandmother would say “If you live here long enough, you get saltwater in your veins.” I always wondered what that meant. As with many things in life, of course years later I know exactly what she meant. Living near the ocean, it becomes a part of you. The way it moves and weathers the seasons, mirror you.

Hello there! Welcome to a very special part of Maine where people still wave to passersby, called Swan’s Island. You will have to take a ferry to get here, which just makes it that much more special.

My grandfather built this house on the harbor in 1927. I bought it when I was 26 and have lived here for fifty years. One must be a bit of a renaissance woman when you live on a rural island. I am retired now but over the years I have been a town official, owned and managed a store, built lobster traps, done caretaking, worked as a ferry terminal agent, and now I am an airbnb host.

Did you know that you can tell which way the winds are blowing because it is the direction the boats are moving? Or how about that the deer like to go down to the water just before sunrise to lick salt from the rocks at low tide? I am happy to share my special home by the sea with travelers from near and far. Come watch with me the activity that is this ocean: bald eagles feeding, herons nesting, gulls harkening in the seasons with the calls.
