This 3 bedroom 2 bath house with hot tub is located on Verona Island in the Penobscot River just inside the bay. Enjoy a peaceful stay on the water's edge or take day trips to enjoy Acadia National Park and great neighboring port towns like Bar Harbor, Castine, Ellsworth, Camden & Belfast. We are mins from Bucksport, Penobscot Narrows Bridge & Observatory, and Fort Knox. It is about 40mins to Mt Desert Island/Acadia entrance. Private dock for those with boats. 2 bikes available. Garage.

The space

Eat your meals while watching passing boats and wildlife on the water. There is a sunroom facing the water, large patio with arbor shade, sunbathing patio, and dock with chairs. The outside dining area has a stone wood-fire grill. There is also an adjacent hot tub house which faces the water. Soak away your hiking aches or just relax and enjoy the view. Books/games available for use (as well as some pamphlets on local activities and hikes). Wireless internet, cable, DVD. House contains many antiques- for antique lovers like us. Mattresses are all new and protected - master is Simmons Beautyrest Black with memory foam pillows. Bedding is thinned during summer, but the heat layer blankets and additional blankets are located in closets/dressers if desired. Master bedroom has an air conditioning unit if needed. Electric fireplaces in the master, dining room and sunroom are available for use during the cool season. 9 beach towels are stocked. The kitchen has basic dish/utensil/cooking supplies and a lobster pot (you are in Maine, right?!). The laundry room has a washer/dryer, cleaning supplies and rags. 2 bicycles in garage available for use (plan for more, helmets and kayaks in the future) - ride over to the Rise & Shine for breakfast, or into Bucksport for ice cream at the Dairy Port. Happy to make recommendations for food, fun and outdoor activities. Great area. Friendly, helpful neighbors.

Guest access

Guests have full access to the house, outdoor areas and hot tub house, as well as one level of the garage. The deck area off the master bedroom was originally cosmetic in design and not safe for use. We are making arrangements to have a proper/safe deck built at this time.

Interaction with guests

We do not live locally, but are happy to assist in any way possible.

Other things to note

This area of the Penobscot has full tide shifts and the current is swift. Swimming here is not safe. Motorized boats use the very deep water access primarily, including cruise ships visiting our area. Canoes and kayaks are not typically recommended due to the swift current- but there area great areas for both paddling and swimming nearby. A public boat launch for those with motorized boats is available a few minutes away on the island (you will pass it coming to the house). We do have boat mooring we can make available near our dock if notified in advance. At check out, we ask that guests collect any used towels/wash cloths into the laundry basket in the laundry room, wipe tables/counters free of food debris, wash used dishes or load the dishwasher and hit start, and deposit all garbage in the dumpster down the street -as well as make sure all doors and windows are locked. Please leave used beds stripped or turned down so that we can quickly identify which bedding needs washing after your stay. We love our home and we hope you will as well! We are happy to share it with you when we cannot be there ourselves, and ask that you treat it and our neighbors with respect. The property will be cleaned before and after your stay at no extra charge, however guests will be responsible for any excessive cleaning needs as well as any damages. Please notify us as soon as possible if there are any problems or damage so that we can make arrangements for repair quickly and make your (and others') stay as enjoyable as possible. Smoking and pets are prohibited.

Our stay was fabulous - we enjoyed watching the tides on the river rise and fall! We drove to Bar Harbor and biked the carriage trails and the next day we biked around verona park island - beautiful! Lovely home with everything you could possibly need for a very relaxing vacation

Your cottage by the water was EXACTLY whatt our family needed. We were able to rest and rejuvenate, and had such a fun time together! We found you, by chance, while hunting for a place to stay, somewhere near the coast in Maine, and are longing to be back there, even now as we're driving home!!! The cottage was completely perfect, with all our needs met and even exceeded... all we needed were groceries from the grocery store, less than 5 minutes down the road! The cottage rooms are beautiful, the beds very comfortable, and the area of Verona/Bucksport delightful to explore. If we could have stayed longer, we would have... all 6 of us lamented only have 3 nights and no one wanted to leave. Thank you Chris, for your clear communication and for sharing your amazing place of rest, with us.

Unbelievably great place to stay. Close to Acadia. Right on the bay where we saw a bald eagle. Highly recommend it.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nashport in Verona Island. We wanted to be outside Bar Harbor and this location was perfect being just under 1 hour away from Acadia and Mount Desert. Beautifully decorated home, spacious, quiet, comfortable and very relaxing to sit on the outdoor covered patio and see the water. Beds were comfortable, sheets were soft, kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare homemade meals every day. Nice backyard for our two young children to run around and play. Chris and Tracy were polite, professional, kind, timely in their responses and a pleasure to work with on this transaction. We would love to come back for another relaxing visit.

Perfect place to relax, well and modern equipped. Chris is good in communication although we didn't meet him in person. We had been a group of 5 an there is plenty of space. Very clean and direct access to the water. Regrettably we couldn't try the hot tub due to a lack of time. This place is highly recommendable.
