Sheephead Island offers the rare opportunity to rent a beautiful Maine island in its entirety, encompassing 65± pristine acres with two residences and a mainland base in the village of Deer Isle. Located just off Sylvester Cove and the village of Sunset, the island is connected to the mainland at low tide and accessible by 4WD vehicle, offering a setting with all the privacy of a true island and the ease and accessibility of a mainland property. In the northeast lee of the island, a deepwater dock, float, and mooring provide ample space for yacht moorage and protection from most winds and prevailing seas. The island's shorefront is spectacular, with miles of pink granite, tidal pools, and broad beaches. Trails run through fields and forest, and there's a wonderful swimming pond hidden away in the woods in the middle of the island. The main residence is a relatively new 5-bedroom house built in the style of a classic New England colonial. With spacious, light-filled rooms, the residence offers comfortable living areas with magnificent views of Penobscot Bay. An additional contemporary residence, located in a private setting away from the main house, includes 4 bedrooms, an open floor plan, beautiful ocean views, and a private beach. The island also includes a boathouse and artist's studio. On the mainland, a four-bedroom historic house in Deer Isle village is ideal for late night arrivals, extra guests, or visitors who wish to remain on the mainland. Garage parking and storage are also included at the mainland waterfront landing, just a short skiff ride from the island across sheltered waters.
