Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2 adults

Rustic two-story 1850s farmhouse-style attached apartment converted from a former lobsterman's workshop. Wide plank (some squeaky) floors throughout, narrow steep stairway, ideal for those looking for authentic Maine island charm. Old-fashioned glider out front gets morning sun exposure. One double bed or two twin beds. Beds are very comfortable, great location for walking to Main Street and ferry. Near water but no views from house. Good neighborhood for walking, great harbor views from nearby Blueberry Lane overlook. Walk to breathtaking Lane's Island Preserve and bike rentals in town. This is not a good choice for people who are expecting a modern "fancy" place. There aren't electric outlets and switches on every wall in every room for instance, but there are plenty of lamps, books, games and the kitchen is well-stocked including lobster pot, coffee maker, and toaster. The owners might be in the connected house while you are here but we are a quiet older couple and there is no open access between spaces. No pets allowed. There is wi-fi, reception best on first floor, but no landline phone or TV. AT&T has cell towers on the island and is best for cell service. Maximum occupancy is two adults.

About Caleb Masom

My wife and I own the apartment and attached house. We are quiet non-smokers not always on the island. We live and work in Portland, Maine. We just bought the house in June of 2015.

Caleb Masom purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Caleb Masom chose MidCoast - Penobscot Bay

Ideal for single travelers or couples looking for affordable stay, apartment is conveniently located to the ferry and Main street, so no car is needed. We provide sheets, blankets, pillows, one fan. An affordable way to get on the island and escape the rush of mainland living.

What makes this apartment unique

Price, walking location, sunny.

Cute place, well appointed with everything necessary for living confortly.

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed with our communication with the owner. The place was beyond our expectations in both living necessities and decorating. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. Location was great. The only complaint I have is a smoke detector low battery alarm during the night.

Simply charming

  • 5 of 5

A perfect apartment for our stay on Vinalhaven. Situated within walking distance to all amenities, we were also pleasantly surprised to be a 20 minute walk from the local swimming hole. It is a bit of a walk from the ferry to the apartment with the last part being uphill, so arranging a ride to and from the dock would be ideal. Other than that you are set. Super comfortable bed with nice linens. The apartment is clean with a lot of unique character, just like the town of Vinalhaven. I highly recommend this place for a couple.

Starr Street Rental

  • 4 of 5

Our rental on Starr Street was comfiortable and economically decorated. There were many interesting pictures, games, puzzles and books to compensate for television or radio. There was wifi, but a landline would have helped us contact friends and family. Overall we enjoyed our stay.
