This rocky .25-acre island, just a short boat ride from South Freeport Harbor, is a coveted spot on the Maine coast. With easy access to mainland amenities and a private shoreline, this cottage offers the best of both worlds. Built in 1950, the interiors have wood-paneled walls, beamed ceilings, a cozy kitchen with painted cupboards, and one bathroom. With shingled siding and a walk-out deck spanning the length of the house, the home looks like a New England post card. The property has a deep water dock, underwater power, and views second to none.
