The open kitchen is spacious and bright, and the family room with it's wall of windows and Gleaming hardwood floors features ocean views.

Beaches are a ten minute walk away.

Chebauge Island, located 10 miles off the coast of Portland, is more Maine than an LL Bean catalogue, complete with rocky beaches, gravelly walking paths lined with wildflowers, and lobsterman at the docks with the fresh catch of the day.

Take a 15 minute ferry across Casco Bay from Cousins Island near Yarmouth, or a 90 minute leisurely ferry from Portland.

Approximately 5 miles long and 3 miles wide, Chebeague Island is the largest of over 300 islands on Casco BAY.

It is a great bicycle island with many miles of paved roads. Things look pretty much the same on Chebeague Island today as they did throughout the last century. Streets have no names, and everyone knows each other, their kids and even their dogs.

About 300 people live on the island year around, either fishing or servicing the fishing village. That number swells to about 1800 in the summer.

The Chebeague Island Inn, a beautifully restored 1920s hotel, where guests enjoy cool nights and front porch days.

The Great Chebeague Golf Club is adjacent to the inn, and is a public 9 hole golf course with ocean views at every hole.

The recreation center features a gym, fitness room, a public tennis court and a public heated swimming pool, plus hosts a spirited volleyball game every Wednesday.

The Museum of Chebeague History, Built in 1871, this once schoolhouse captures the deep roots of the island. Much of the island's history unfolds here with a historical view of the artwork and artifacts on display.

The view from Indian Point, known as "The Hook" overlooks Little Chebeague Island.
